Despite the obvious difficulties of choosing one representative title for an article describing Vogue Paris May 2010 issue, I’ll have to go for guest editor Penelope Cruz holding the main credentials for this Cannes special French Vogue.
Three covers seem to be available for this particular issue: one featured right below with star actresses Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts and, biensur, Penelope Cruz. All wearing (RED)Hot tees. The second cover (you can find it right after the jump) pictures Penelope Cruz demi-profiled by Bono the great (which would explain half the mystery of the first cover – the (RED) t-shirts). And a third cover (
hope to get my eyes on pretty soon and share it with you UPDATE: I added the third cover, you can see it at the very end of this article) showing living legend Meryl Streep alongside Penelope Cruz. (the story continues right after the jump!)
This Cannes issue sounds pretty special (as far as the main guest-edited story goes): Penelope Cruz photographing Salma Hayek and Javier Bardem wtith Sean Penn. Penelope Cruz fashion spread the spring season. John Galliano’s collage story about Almodovar and Penelope Cruz, Almodovar interviewing Jeanne Moreay. Everything seems to revolve around Penelope. Which is not a bad thing.
I’m not entirely clarified as to why they’re wearing (RED) products on the cover, neither on why Bono has to be in a fashion magazine (dealing with Cannes). Have you any ideas? (As for they being Photoshopped beyond recognition is such a trivial talk and tiring obsession for magazine covers, I’d rather stay out of it and just frown in disappointment.) (via 1, 2, 3)
