Stars and their smokin' shoots

Her husband Javier Bardem has hit headlines with his brilliant turn in Bond flick Skyfall, and now Penelope Cruz is garnering her own column inches by unveiling her 2013 Campari calendar. The Oscar-winning actress presented next year's project at a cocktail party in Milan last night (13 November), joining a gallery of iconic Campari faces including Salma Hayek, Jessica Alba and Eva Mendes.

Campari is famed for bringing together some of the world's most beautiful stars and world-class photographers in its sumptuous annual calendars, which are characterised by dramatic, intricate and highly stylised imagery. Take a look at some of the stunning campaign photos from Penelope's shoot, along with those from years gone by, in our Campari retrospective below.
