PENELOPE-CRUZ-W-MAGAZINE-SEPTEMBER-2012

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.

      Thanks Gerard! I love it too!

      Funnily enough my Pic o’the day yesterday was of the stunning Jerry Hall on the Vogue Paris cover in 1984. This image of Penelope is probably as close as we’re going to get to something like that ever!
