Entitled It’s the end of the world, baby!, this year’s Campari Calendar takes its inspiration from the buzz around the prediction that, according to the ancient Mayan culture, the world as we know will end on 21st December 2012 and enter a transformative period.
Campari’s answer to this ‘gloomy’ imaginary is to react, in an energetic and positive way, without compromises, in countertendency with the main stream. Therefore, with nothing but a blur of unknown possibilities, Campari takes a positive look at intriguing theories, and presents them visually in a series of powerful, awe inspiring photos starring Hollywood actress and supermodel, Milla Jovovich.
Set to take the audience on a stunning visual voyage, the calendar showcases Campari’s latest female protagonist in vivid shots, as she enacts hypothetical scenes about the end of the world. With scenarios inspired from modern cinematography, mythological and biblical origins, the calendar explores remarkable events from dramatic Desertification and Hurricanes to Alien Invasion and Meteorite. Posing in magnificent couture, Jovovich successfully captivates viewers as she exudes a determined attitude, evoking power and control upon the unknown, and makes a toast to life with her co star, Campari.
Distributed in international limited edition of only 9.999 copies it is a small, collectible luxury for the happy few that receive it, and is a tribute to the beautiful men and women and world class photographers that make it come to life every year.
Milla Jovovich marks a return to female stars for the 2012 Campari Calendar, following last year’s first male protagonist, Benicio Del Toro. She will now follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s most stunning women who have adorned the pages of previous Campari Calendars, including Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, and Jessica Alba.
