Don't miss the red-hot Campari Calendar for 2013, starring Hollywood actress Penelope Cruz!

Each year, prestigious aperitif brand Campari releases a limited-edition, exclusive calendar starring a celebrity.

And for 2013, the sizzling Penelope Cruz takes centrestage, following in the footsteps of A-listers like Milla Jovovich, Eva Mendes and Jessica Alba, among others.

Celebrated Paris-based photographer Kristian Schuller shot this latest edition; entitled Kiss Superstition Goodbye, it draws inspiration from the breaking down of superstitions, such as those associated with the number 13. A fitting theme, considering we're standing on the threshold of 2013!

We see yummy mummy Penelope in a host of stunning red-hot images, defying several mystical superstitions, such as black cats, broken mirrors and walking under ladders, as well as walking on cracks.

And of course, there's a bottle or glass of Campari on every page! Take a look.

The introductory page reveals the Spanish siren taking an ice pick to the magical number 13, wearing a Romona Keveza gown with asymmetrical neckline and flowing skirt, shoes by Stuart Weitzman and jewellery by Chopard.
