An ice-breaker: the cover image for the new calendar
If you know of a buddy who likes cocktails and Penelope Cruz—and we know of a few—the Campari calendar will make a nifty little gift to send him off to a good start for 2013.
Yes, the Oscar-winning Penelope Cruz is the star of the glamorous 2013 Campari Calendar, lensed by by Paris-based fashion photographer, Kristian Schuller.
The dramatic images of the themed shoot, drenched in vivid hues of red and black, riff off traditional superstitions about the number '13', such as black cats, broken mirrors and walking under ladders. The actress is seen in a dazzling array of gorgeous red gowns and shoes from top fashion houses such as Emilio Pucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, as well as stunning haute jewellery by Chopard.
