Jessica Alba graces every month of the new Campari calendar, posing seductively in black evening gowns and bathing suits while clutching the apertif. Looking like a 40s pinup with a considerable buzz, Alba is surrounded by interchangeable dark-haired admirers who seem ready to pounce once she gets drunk enough. Given her acting abilities I would guess that her half-lidded look can be attributed to sipping the props for the photo shoot.
Alba, 27, has a six month old daughter, Honor Marie Warren, and says her life at home is less than glamorous:
Jessica Alba shows off her body-after-baby in the 2009 Campari calendar, and PEOPLE has a sneak peek of the pictures that the actress says allowed her “play out this sort of bombshell.”
“I’m usually walking around in comfy clothes, with a baby on my arm,” says Alba, 27, who welcomed daughter Honor Marie Warren in June, “and it’s nice to dress things up and feel sophisticated, sexy, and surrounded by so much beauty.”
Campari is printing only 9,999 copies of the calendar featuring photos of Alba in swimsuits, high heels and evening wear. The calendar will be distributed at the end of the year.
The photos, shown below, are shot by famed Peruvian photographer Mario Testino, who has worked with many celebrities, fashion houses and high-end magazines throughout his career. Alba does look beautiful and classy in a wasted kind of way.
I don’t like her, but I like these pics. Very early 80s and retro.
Has anybody actually HAD Campari?? Blech! No wonder they need ‘namebrand’ T&A to sell it…
WOW THOSE PICS ARE GORGEOUS BUT NEVER HEARD OF CAMPARI.
I don’t think she looks “drunk”…she looks very good actually.
I was prepared to snark, but the photos are beautiful. She looks amazing.
Not seeing the ‘drunk’ either. These are gorgeous, very glam. She photographs beautifully.
I don’t think her face is all that beautiful. I can see the look that they were going for, but her face isn’t scuplted naturally enough to pull it off. Her face reminds me of my Italian male cousin’s.
Two thumbs down.
*sigh*. Whatever. Talk all the shit you want about her awful movies and pisspoor acting ability, but the girl is absolutely beautiful and enviably photogenic.
Like Sugar Ray working a speed bag and make her baby-daddy watch at gunpoint. 😈
She looks gorgeous. Those photos are so glamorous and classy.
Campari is gross, but she looks great.
Hey everyone needs to make a buck today!
She has the Body and the looks why not sell out for advertising an alcohol?
Nothing new here-all these pin up looking actors make millions promoting products abroad-just this campaign is more main stream-so what???
Sounds like there is a little jealousy going on here about how good she looks in these pics…
Yawn. . .
she should stick to only showing herself. . .never acting.
I can’t really think of worse actor or actress then her.
She looks like Alyssa Milano in these pics.
Ehh. She aint ugly that’s for sure and some of the pics look really pretty. But, no matter how much spackle they slap on or what tight dress they pour her into, her shitty attitude and even shittier acting skills are a big turn off to me.
Those pictures are technically really good. She has an amazing body, but other than that I find her very average. She has the stupid spacey look in her eyes that I despise in the bitchy incoming freshman
Pics are nice but hey, they’re supposed to be. Professional lighting, photographer, stylist, national ad campaign. Get it. Personally, I never got all the fuss about Alba. Seriously, not hatin’ just always found her pedestrian pretty at best. Now that Hayek woman, oh yeah, I’m hatin’.
She ain’t drunk. I know from drunk, and that ain’t it. If she were drunk, her eyeliner would be running down to her chin. That look (or lackthereof) in her eyes is just her lobotomy showing. We should all look so good after having our lobes scrambled. 😯
She doesn’t look wasted to me.
I mean, I like them but I actually prefer the Eva Mendes’ one – at least she actually looked like she drank alcohol, whereas with Alba comes across as more likely to be holding a glass of milk. They should have rocked it with Rihanna.
That said, Jessica’s is very visually appealing nontheless.
