Penélope Cruz Set to Star in 2013 Campari Calendar

Campari announced that the actress is going to be the leading lady of their 2013 Calendar

Maybe the world isn’t ending this year after all. Almost a year after revealing its "It’s the End of the World, Baby"-themed calendar, Campari unveiled plans for its 2013 edition, a sure sign that the world will not be exploding anytime soon.

While the company has kept mum on the subject of the theme, it has announced that Kristian Schuller will photograph Penélope Cruz for the 12-month spread. The Oscar-winning actress is following in the footsteps of 14 other international celebrities, including Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, and Jessica Alba. As the Campari Calendar continues to involve renowned artists, actresses, and photographers, it has become one of the world’s iconic artistic calendars.

While Cruz seems excited to be working with such a creative team, she emphasized her overall appreciation for Campari’s brand.

"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," she said in a press release.

Campari will unveil the final imagery from the calendar at a red carpet event to be held in Milan in fall 2012. Only 9,999 copies of the calendar will be available worldwide. While you wait, it would probably be best for you to sip on either a Chocolate Negroni or Serrano Cocktail.
