Featured Article: Penélope Cruz for Marie Claire US February 2019


Penélope Cruz is the cover star of Marie Claire US’ latest issue, wearing Chanel and photographed by Nico Bustos (on newsstands January 10th).

Opening up to the magazine, Cruz shares how she places family above all, from the roles she chooses to filming schedules—and remains grounded in the life she’s built for herself. She goes on to share what surprised her about motherhood and how she’s fighting to extend the Time’s Up movement beyond Hollywood.

Next month, she stars in the thriller ‘Everybody Knows‘ alongside her husband, Javier Bardem.

On what surprised her about motherhood: “It’s the thing that make me the happiest. But there are a lot of things that have surprised me about it. It’s like a revolution inside you – a very animal-like one. The whole world looks different. You’ll never think of yourself first again, and I think that’s a very good thing. It happens in a second.”

On husband and frequent co-star, Javier Bardem: “Obviously we can’t choose parts just for logistical reasons, like ‘Oh let’s work together because it’s easier.’ No. In fact, it’s not something we want to do that often, partly out of desire to protect what we have. On the one hand, it’s easier because you know what person, he knows you, and the way you work is very similar. On the other hand, the idea of it happening every year is very scary. I think it’s better for it to just be once in a while, even though they’ve been very good experiences.”

On extending her work with Time’s Up beyond Hollywood: “A teacher or a doctor, they’re not going to get a microphone and somebody asking them: ‘What’s your situation? Are you suffering these things? So, it’s important to me to make clear that I’m not just talking about our industry. It affects women in all industries and every single country, and I speak for them, the ones that are never going to be asked that question. It’s good to remember that men can victims of this too. This can’t be about more division. If we don’t do this together, it’s useless.” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)

L’Oréal Paris x Balmain 2017 Ad Campaign


Balmain and L’Oréal Paris have joined forces on a limited edition lip colour collection, designed by Balmain‘s creative director Olivier Rousteing. The lipstick will come in 12 shades and is set to debut later this September. The collection will also feature three lipstick “jewels” in which the product will be encased in a wearable accessory.

Rousteing said that the partnership was an opportunity to make Balmain accessible to a wider audience. “I’m really close to luxury but at the same time I’m also close to pop culture and I think a lot of people who may love the Balmain universe can’t afford the clothes.”

“The collaboration with L’Oréal Paris opens up luxury in a different way. For [consumers] to get a piece of Balmain [makeup] is a way for them to get into the Balmain universe. Makeup has always been part of my aesthetic and my silhouette. Having the opportunity to do that with an institution like L’Oréal Paris for me is an incredible dream,” he continue.

The campaign image is featuring Olivier himself and a group of L’Oréal spokesmodels and Balmain girls such as Lara Stone, Doutzen Kroes, Ming Xi, Soo Joo Park, Grace Bol, Valentina Sampaio, Neelam Gill, Maria Borges, Ysaunny Brito, Alexina Graham, Luma Grothe and Cindy Bruna. (source)
