Penelope Cruz Ads: Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren

The actress represented the iconic brand in 2001 ad campaigns, one of her first modeling gigs as an actress spokesperson. "Ralph saw some of my movies and then called me for a meeting," she told Vogue UK in 2001. “He offered me the campaign, and I was very happy. I've followed his work since I was little. I love his taste. It's sexy and classy at the same time." Ralph told the magazine. "Before we even met I saw this inner sparkle. She's a unique combination of beauty and intelligence." Talk about a compliment!
