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.
The beloved Spanish beauty steps into the bejeweled heels of some of the world’s most elegant women who have adorned the pages of previous Campari Calendars: Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba and Milla Jovovich, just to name a few.
On starring in the 2013 Campari Calendar, Penelope Cruz said: “The Campari Calendar consistently works with talented and creative teams and photographers to produce world-class imagery. I have really enjoyed working in this project for one of the world’s most iconic brands, particularly with such an amazing history attached to it. I really feel that Campari fans across the globe will love the imagery when they see the finished Calendar, the theme in itself is intense, captivating and chic.”
