French Vogue tapped Penélope Cruz as guest editor of its May issue, which typically is themed around the Cannes Film Festival. The 210-page issue has three cover choices: Cruz with Bono; Cruz with Meryl Streep, or Cruz with Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Streep. “She was very intense and precise about what she wanted,” said Olivier Lalanne, associate editor in chief at French Vogue. The Spanish actress enlisted friend and director Pedro Almodóvar to interview actress Jeanne Moreau in a feature titled “Talk to Her.” Cruz showed her talent on the other side of the camera and included her digital snaps of a pregnant Salma Hayek, or Javier Bardem chatting with Sean Penn at a bar in California. Meanwhile, the Spanish actress poses in spring fashions in a feature photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. John Galliano also contributed to the Cruz issue, with a collage depicting the actress and Almodovar. The issue hits newsstands this week with a cover price of 4.90 euros, or $6.65 at current exchange. (wwd today)
