Actress Uma Thurman follows in the footsteps of fellow screen sirens such as Penelope Cruz, Milla Jovovich and Salma Hayek to star in 2014’s iconic Campari calendar. Next year’s calendar in inspired by global celebrations with Uma and photographer Koto Balofo (who has shot for the likes of Burberry, Hermes and Vogue) recreating and celebrating festivities around the world. They span from the cherry blossom Hanami festival in Japan to Mexico’s Dia De Los Muertos to the arrival of the Summer solstice at Stonehenge. Our very own Melbourne Cup gets a nod as Uma rides a giant rocking horse while wearing a top hat. Naturally she wears nothing less than Pucci, Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Alberta Ferretti, Stella McCartney and Zac Posen and drinks a lot of the bitter citrus aperitif during the shoot. Lucky lady.
