Penelope Cruz Guest-Edits Vogue Paris

Vogue Paris

When Vogue Paris enlisted Penelope Cruz as a guest editor for their May issue, they got more than what they bargained for, including a bunch of her famous friends. The issue, which is annually devoted to the Cannes film festival and cinema, has three beautiful covers; Cruz with U2's Bono, Cruz with Meryl Streep and Cruz with fellow Hollywood actresses, Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts.

Olivier Lalanne, associate editor in chief of the magazine spoke to WWD about Penelope's involvement in editing the magazine: "She was very intense and precise about what she wanted."

Frequent Cruz collaborator, Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, interviews French actor Jeanne Moreau for the issue and in a rare glimpse into Cruz's personal life, the actress shares her own photographs of her BFF Salma Hayek posing while pregnant, and rumored boyfriend Javier Bardem chatting Sean Penn up in a Los Angeles bar. Designer John Galliano also created a collage of Cruz and Almodovar for the May issue. The celebrity-filled magazine hits Paris newsstands Friday, April 23.
