The behind-the-scenes preview shots made us sit up a little and take notice, but all that’s in the past now that Kate Hudson’s 2016 Campari Calendar has arrived. And boy is it something.
Campari, the iconic Italian apéritif, is known for its annual haute couture photo calendar, traditionally supported by a glamorous female subject. Past stars who have been featured range from Salma Hayek and Eva Mendes to Jessica Alba and Penelope Cruz, so Kate Hudson is only the most recent in a long line of beautiful women who have graced the calendar’s pages.
The theme of the calendar — the BitterSweet Campaign — is in line with the upcoming 2016 elections, and sees Hudson portraying two rival political candidates who embody the dual Campari flavors of bitter and sweet. Hudson smolders in a series of body-hugging, red ensembles that take her from the campaign trail, to the debate stage, to the limousine and the cocktail reception after. It’s difficult to look away.
Take a moment to appreciate these sultry photos from Campari and Kate Hudson’s 2016 BitterSweet Campaign Calendar.
