Bond girl Olga Kurylenko will take over from Jessica Alba as the new Campari girl for 2010

Olga, who stars in Campari's 11th calendar shot in Milan, said: 'It was a truly unique experience. I was delighted and intrigued by Campari's proposal'

As a Bond girl, she's used to portraying the glamorous vixen in a world of Martini swiggers and the perfectly coiffed.

So it's perhaps no surprise that Olga Kurylenko has been chosen as the new face of the famously sophisticated drink Campari.

The 29-year-old Ukrainian actress is the brand's latest calendar girl following in the footsteps of actresses Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek and Eva Mendes to name but a few.

Olga, who will take over in 2010 from Alba, this year's Campari Girl, shot the Italian brand's 11th calendar, dubbed Campari Milano, in a stunning shoot in Milan.

She may have seemed an unlikely choice after the better-known celebrities who have fronted the campaign, but her supermodel looks fit well with the brand's sophisticated image.

And she graces the calendar’s 12 months in ultra glamorous fashion.

'Olga was a natural choice,' said Campari CEO Bob Kunze-Concewitz.

'[She has] great charm, grace, elegance and sensuality that represents the perfect incarnation of the Campari brand.'

In the retro-themed shoot Olga, who came to some international fame as the character ‘Camille’ in the most recent James Bond film Quantum of Solace, poses confidently with a bottle of the famous red alcohol in her hands.

She is simultaneously gawped at by fellow models while standing in a luxurious old train carriage.

In another, just like Jessica Alba's campaign, she looks airbrushed within an inch of her life - almost looking like a computer CGI model - as she wears a black leather top and black trousers in a bar with four chiselled male models.

'It was a truly unique experience.

'I was delighted and intrigued by Campari’s proposal: to play the Campari woman and interpret the essence of Red Passion,' added the actress.

In keeping with its experimental approach to the arts, Campari chose the young up-and-coming Italian photographer Simone Nervi to immortalise Kurylenko.
