In the 2013 installment, Cruz will appear in a series of seductive images by German photographer Kristian Schuller that were shot on location at an elegant, classic Parisian palace.

Cruz, who just recently saw a wax figure of her likeness installed at the The Grevin Wax Museum in Paris, wears a series of burgundy outfits in the photos. In one series, Cruz’s hair flows loosely; in another her hair swept back in a bun.

Cruz even resembles the legendary Audrey Hepburn in some of the shots, especially with the way her is styled.

The calendar for the Italian aperitif maker will debut in Milan this fall with a run of 9,000 copies. In addition, the images will appear in Campari’s advertising.
