Penélope Cruz Delivers a Simple, Arresting Portrait for Interview’s November 2017 Cover

There’s a select group of actresses who always deliver when covering our favorite fashion glossies and Penélope Cruz is most definitely one of them. Her flawless track record includes covers for American Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar Spain, W Magazine, Allure and Interview. The gorgeous Spanish beauty returns to the cover of Interview for a third time, appearing on the title’s inviting black and white cover for November 2017. Photographed by Christian MacDonald, Penélope serves a graceful and vulnerable portrait, along with an interview by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Our forum members were in awe. “Can’t remember the last cover of Interview that I liked this much (probably the one with Keira Knightley by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott). I’m a total sucker for Penélope Cruz, and she’s photographed just beautifully for this cover here. A thousand times more compelling than what Interview‘s been doing lately — I’m down for this,” voiced vogue28.

“Love the vulnerability in her eyes,” pointed out kokobombon.

“I like it. It’s a simple concept but it works,” narcyza commented.

In agreement over how wonderful everything turned out was happycanadian: “Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! Definitely borrows from classic [Peter] Lindbergh photos. But I don’t mind – it feels like more of a tribute. Penélope is stunning. Love this!”

Luxx shared the same enthusiasm toward Interview‘s current cover star. “She’s been on the cover of Interview at least twice before, I’d say she’s a regular at this point. Photographs beautifully, has multiple films coming out this year plus the Versace TV show at the start of next, if anything, she should be doing more publicity but there’s still a generation of film star that doesn’t feel the need to shove themselves into our faces at every opportunity. Christian MacDonald is a skilled photographer, this photo says a lot in spite its simplicity.”

“Nice cover,” simply applauded forum member liaa.
