COVER: PENELOPE CRUZ BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT, W MAGAZINE 2012
Posted on August 16, 2012
You’d be forgiven for not realising that September’s W Magazine cover comes courtesy of Mert & Marcus. Penelope Cruz looks soft, glamourous and actually like Penelope Cruz (no shade intended)!
The beautifully subdued cover, (for the famed photographers at least), harkens back to the 80s with a huge wind blown mane, a garish, over the top turquoise necklace, and retouching that has left the actress’ skin tone and textures in place!
Just like the 1984 Vogue Paris cover I posted yesterday, a minimal amount of text, allowing Penelope to shine through is what really sets this september cover apart from everyone else.
