Campari Calendar 2013 - Penelope Cruz - Fashion in Red Kisses Superstition Goodbye

By Thedollsfactory.com @dollsfactory

This year Penelope Cruz is the latest star in the iconic Campari Calendar, featured in an all red very fashionable editorial-like shooting. Just like every year the Campari Calendar is distributed in an international limited edition of only 9,999 copies and will be in the hands of the luxury collectors. I really love the dresses featured this year, and being a big fan of Penelope I'd want to get my hands on one of these calendars. But being that impossible, we can enjoy the images released from Campari.
The Campari Calendar 2013 is based around the number 13, as there is no number in the world that has more magical meanings than number 13, and 2013’s Calendar will explore the various superstitions we have.  So let’s enjoy 2013, and be sure that with Campari, this year is going to be a great one.
Counting the many years of bad luck that Penelope might have doing these photographs I really hope sho got paid enough for the campaign. We'll have to see if any of the superstitions is true, I'm sure only about the breaking of the mirrors and black cats.

Superstition 'Black Cats' In western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of evil omens, specifically suspected of being related to witches. Most of western and southern Europe considers the black cat as a symbol of bad luck, especially if one crosses paths with a person, which is believed to be an omen of misfortune.

Superstition '13 Being Unlucky' The fear of the number 13 is so pervasive that it is officially known as triskaidekaphobia. There are many thoughts as to why this belief is held including: Witches’ covens traditionally having 13 members and an old legend which says that the first person to get up from a table containing 13 people will die within the year.

Superstition 'Opening An Umbrella Indoors'One theory as to why opening an umbrella indoors brings bad luck borrows from the idea of an umbrella as a protector against the storms of life. If you open one in your home, the household guardian spirits might think you felt their protection was insufficient and they would leave, cursing your household as they go.

Superstition 'Broken Mirror Is Worth Seven Years Of Bad Luck' One's reflection in a mirror has traditionally been thought to be the representation of his or her soul, or spiritual state.

Superstition 'Sweeping Someone’s Feet' It was thought that a woman who couldn’t sweep a floor properly wouldn’t be a good wife and would never get married. If you swept your own feet, or someone else does it to you, it meant you were not concentrating or paying attention to what you/others are doing and are therefore not suited for marriage.

Superstition 'Don’t Spill The Salt!'
 To spill salt was seen as an extraordinary waste as it was such a high value commodity, and the word ‘salary’ actually comes from the Roman tradition of paying soldiers in salt. The superstition claims bad luck will visit anyone who spills salt, and was invented specifically to deter people from wasting it.

Superstition 'Horseshoes'
 To hang the horse shoe with the ends pointing upwards has long since been considered good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by. However, to hang it with the ends pointing downwards is viewed as bad luck as all the good luck will fall out.

Superstition 'Walking Under A Ladder'
One origin of this superstition is in relation to the similarities between a ladder leaning against a wall and a gallows. Anything associated with a gallows is traditionally considered ill luck, so walking under one - or a ladder that looked like one - is not advisable.
