MANILA - Actress Krista Ranillo has bared nearly all in a liquor brand's sexy calendar.

Ranillo, who recently figured in the headlines over her alleged affair with boxer Manny Pacquiao, was chosen by Ginebra San Miguel Inc. as their 2010 calendar girl.

Posing in a variety of skimpy bikinis, Ranillo's pictures will appear in the calendar's 12 full-page spreads marking January to December.

Ranillo poses in a strapless red bikini as she sits open-legged against a backdrop of grassy hills in one picture, then appears moist and wet in a cottony white top in another.

She is also seen wearing a navy blue swimsuit, a metallic bronze string bikini, and a lime green halter bikini set, among others.

The actress said in a public statement that she believes her sexy shoot with the liquor brand will "boost her career further."

It is her first time to pose for Ginebra, though she has graced the covers of men's magazines like FHM and Maxim (where she is a resident sex columnist).

Other celebrities featured by Ginebra in their previous sexy calendars are Marian Rivera, Angelica Panganiban, Rufa Mae Quinto, Rica Peralejo and Iwa Moto.

Many liquor brands, who cater to a predominantly male market, have placed scantily-clad models or actresses on their promotional calendars or posters as a marketing gimmick. Report by Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News.
