The Spanish film star Penelope Cruz, who recently debuted on the catwalk, this time became the main character of the Spanish glossy magazine Vogue. The magazine created two cover versions with a 44-year-old actress. On one of them, Cruz poses in a tweed red suit from Chanel from the 1983 autumn-winter collection. It was in 1983 that Karl Lagerfeld became the art director of the fashion house. Penelope was one of the muses of the famous designer, who died on February 19.
By the way, the picture with the actress was taken by photographer Peter Lindberg a few hours before the death of Lagerfeld. The outfit for shooting is the choice of the fashion designer.
“When I put on my 1983 suit, I felt a chill. We all knew that Karl did not go out to say hello at the end of the show in January, and that he did not feel very well, although the details were not known. I thought about it when I was getting dressed … and a few hours later he died. I will always associate these pictures with the day he left. This is a shocking coincidence. This cover is a tribute to Lagerfeld, ”said the celebrity in an interview.
On the second cover, the actress is captured in a sexy black dress by Donatella Versace from the 2019 collection (a recreation of the creation of Gianni Versace). A dress with gold pins was worn by Elizabeth Hurley in 1994.
“Last year, Donatella worked on my character for the American Crime Story series. It made me admire her even more and love her even more. This House has always been generous with me, and this was a great opportunity to pay tribute to him, ”Penelope admitted.
The actress herself also posted both covers on her account, signing: “I hope you enjoy my Vogue Spain issue, where I had the pleasure of being a guest editor. Thank you for your generosity and trust! Thanks to everyone who made this issue possible … I hope you enjoy it. ”
By the way, Penelope admitted that at first she did not want to accept the invitation due to lack of time. But then she decided to answer the trust placed in her by the publication and share things that inspire her and played an important role in life. “We talked not only about fashion, this is a sincere number …”, Penelope shared.
