penelope cruz loewe

Penelope Cruz appears in the Spring-Summer 2013 advertising campaign for Spanish brand Loewe, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

The first of two images released so far by the brand shows Cruz leaning against a mirror with a luxurious coralcolored Paseo bag (€1,400), with the star shot in Madrid’s sumptuous Palacio Marqués de Villafranca.

The 38-yo actress also appears in a second image, posing alongside a classical statue and holding one of the label’s classic Amazon handbags in black, with one of the palace’s equestrian murals behind her in the new Mert & Marcus images.

“Loewe is an international brand proud of its Spanish roots and with a rich history. Its collections are made by Spanish master artisans and I have always admired their work. I feel fortunate to be a part of this project,” the actress said.

The actress, who is married to “Skyfall” villain Javier Bardem, is also designing a new lingerie line for Agent Provocateur called L’Agent alongside her sister Monica.
