Actor and activist Penélope Cruz guest edits the April 2019 issue of Vogue España, reminding us all that she is far more a Versace woman than a Chanel one. A woman wears the clothes and not vice versa — a frequently forgotten fact. Cruz actually shoots an editorial in the issue, but here’s she’s styled by Juan Cebrián for ‘Un Papel A Su Medida’, lensed by Luigi & Iango.

Hollywood star Penelope Cruz, who debuted a sustainable jewelry collection with Swarovski last year headlines a new ‘Made for Legends’ campaign for luxe artisan jeweler John Hardy. Following last year’s ‘legends’ Julianne Moore and Adwoa Aboah, Cruz models the mixed metals of John Hardy’s spring/summer 2019 collection, in a campaign shot by Josh Olins.
“It is important to me that any project I participate in aligns with my values, and John Hardy has been dedicated to preserving their artisan community and rich heritage for over 40 years,” Cruz said in a statement.
“Each piece is handcrafted in Bali, a place I know and love, with techniques that have been passed down for generations and made with reclaimed gold and silver, as well as ethically vetted stones. I also love that the brand has championed female artisans and entrepreneurs from day one with its signature motif, Classic Chain, traditionally woven by Balinese women as a way to bring prosperity to their families," Cruz said.

Cruz is nominated for a Sunday night Golden Globe award for her performance in ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ in the second season of American Crime Story. In February, the star debuts with husband Javier Bardem in ‘Everybody Knows’. Read her interview with Gaby Wood.
Actor Penélope Cruz sets sail in her maiden voyage for Chanel, lensed by Karl Lagerfeld in nautical looks for the brand’s 2019 resort collection. In one image, she wears a checked tweed beret and a sweater emblazoned with La Pausa, the name of the villa in the South of France built by founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the Thirties.
The Chanel Foundation bought La Pausa from the Estate of Wendy Reves in 2011. The asking price for the property, built for Coco Chanel by her lover, the Duke of Westminster, was $56 million. La Pausa has a second identity as the place where Winston Churchill spent about a third of each year during 1956, 1957 and 1958, as a guest of the Reveses.
Star of 'American Crime Story' and newest Chanel brand ambassador Penelope Cruzwears Jacquemus for the September 2018 cover of Marie Claire France. Anne-Sophie Thomas styles Cruz also in Azzedine Alaia, Celine, Nina Ricci and more for images by Xavi Gordo.
The women are out in full force in Cannes, and in the post-Weinstein, #MeToo era, they mean business -- proving that they really can survive without Harvey. Variety reports that three major Chinese distribution companies are competing to acquire dstribution rights in Greater China, and also to become equity investors in Jessica Chastain's original idea project '355'.
'355' is named after the first female spy in the American revolution, although her precise identity is not known. In Chastain's film, five female operatives band together to stop a global organization determined to acquire a deadly weapon that would thrust the world into chaos. The women are strangers and technically enemies in some cases. Under this dire threat of global destruction, Cruz, Bingbing, Cotillard, Chastain and Nyong'o join forces and become friends in the code-name '355' cell.
