Swiss International Airlines along with Narendra Kumar have just launched their new calendar featuring the starlet in a bid to showcase the beauty of Switzerland and boost tourism. Here's a first look!

In the month of July each year, Swiss International Airlines unveils a glamour calendar that features a seasoned Indian model posing in exotic Swiss locales, dressed in couture by their brand ambassador and veteran designer Narendra Kumar.

For the first time however, the venture's been given a Bollywood twist, and features actress Sonal Chauhan instead of a catwalk queen. The theme for this year's shoot, which took place in the scenic Swiss city of Lugano, known for its lakes, gardens and affluent residents, was appropriately enough 'the Swiss Dolce Vita', living the high life.

Now in its fifth edition and shot by photographer Prasad Naik, we bring you a sneak peek of the calendar. And in case you're wondering, since it's launched mid-year to coincide with tourist season, it makes sense that it starts off from August 2013.

August 2013

The actress wears a sharp monochrome gown as she poses in a well-groomed, lush green garden.

Wearing a daring blue-gold jacket with plunging neckline and nothing on underneath, Sonal still manages to look demure -- waiting for her teatime date, perhaps?
