No one is as surprised as I am by the fact that I'm posting about Penélope Cruz. I am not her biggest fan but when something's fair, it is fair.
There has been a lot of fuss on the Fashion Spot forums about her cover of American Vogue for the June issue. Yes, it is a massive deal to be featured on it and I am the first one not only to admit that but to join in its praise. Despite the crowded text and the unoriginal close-up crop of the picture the Mario Testino picture makes a brilliant cover.
My favourite thing about it is how young and fresh Pe (as they call her in Spain) looks. I love the really light make up and the fact that you can see her freckles. The hair is casual and there is barely any clothes in the shot. It's becautiful simple photography and it's all about her incredible brown eyes and the amazing lips.
To top it all, Pe looked smashing at the London premiere of the new 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film in a white Givenchy dress. I love the classy feel that the long sleeves give it but there is an edge and a flirty factor introduced by the front slit and the perpendicular zips.
I can't wait to see the rest of the Mario pictures inside and I am excited for what's to come at the red carpet.
