If you weren't quite convinced of Elisabetta Canalis's bombshell status, her appearance in Roberto Cavalli's lingerie campaign should help make your mind up.
Draped on a Louis XVI style velvet sofa, Elisabetta gives the camera a sultry stare sporting mussed-up hair, smudgy black eyes and a set of leopard print Roberto Cavalli lingerie.
Roberto Cavalli said 'For my next underwear collection I was inspired by a real woman, with appeal, charisma and sensuality. I was sure Elisabetta was just perfect for enhancing the spirit of this advertising campaign… and I was not wrong!"
Shot by famed fashion snappers Mert&Marcus in a nineteenth-century private house filled with gilded mirrors, baroque upholstery, the resulting campaign is pure Cavalli; sexy, decadent and feminine.
