Kate Hudson looks sizzling hot in the pictures for her new campaign for Campari Calendar 2016: The BitterSweet Campaign. The Hollywood actress has followed the footsteps of Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba, Penelope Cruz and Eva Green by appearing in the campaign, which took off on Wednesday.

Hudson modelled a range of smoking hot red outfits for Campari’s stylish BitterSweet campaign, Telegraph reports. She is the latest star to lend her face to the 17th iconic Campari calendar.

In one picture, the actress looks stunning in a mermaid style strapless dress. The dress shows off her bosom, toned arms and her slim figure. The star poses in a red carpet look and holds a drink in hand.

Hudson posed in a variety of chic outfits for the fashion-forward shoot that was photographed by Michelangelo Di Battista, Mirror UK reports. Her blonde hair is pulled back tightly and styled in an up-do. Hudson looks radiant and accessorised her look with long diamond earrings.

Another picture shows her in a daring plunging sequin gown as she sips cocktail while sitting in the back of a limousine. In a third shot, she is seen in a sheer red mini dress as she sits on a couch cross legged. Her blonde hair is styled into a long ponytail and kept in center part. She wears red Christian Louboutin pumps.

“For me, this project meant much more than producing a calendar; it was a creative process telling a great story. It was a fabulous campaign that challenged me to bring out two different sides of myself to ensure that the pictures told the story in a creative and beautiful way - and that is exactly what we've achieved,” Hudson said, speaking about the Campari Calendar.

She added that personally she is all for the sweeter side of things, however her taste buds definitely loved bitter, Toronto Sun reports. This year’s bitter sweet flavour and the theme asked people to take a stand for what they believe in. From her point of view, Hudson said that it is a very powerful message.

The 36-year-old actress said that the 2016 Calendar was a testament to how Campari stayed true to itself as a brand and proved there would always be a place for the classic nature of Campari within today’s contemporary world.
