Vogue Spain Picks Penélope Cruz as Its First 2021 Cover Star

We’ve enjoyed Vogue Spain immensely throughout 2020. The Spanish fashion bible has delivered an array of stunning covers starring everyone from Hailey Bieber to Ana de Armas to Amber Valletta. Then there was that unforgettable Indya Moore cover. Despite the fact Eugenia de la Torriente is leaving, 2021 still looks bright for Spanish Vogue. Especially with Penélope Cruz leading the way. Appearing on the January issue, the actress photographs like a dream (per usual) wearing Chanel picked by Juan Cebrian before the lens of Nico Bustos.

“Always elated to see Penélope grace the cover of any fashion magazine, but Vogue Spain always feels just so right. The cover image itself is gorgeous, but I am incredibly bias toward Penélope and believe she just can do NO wrong,” raved vogue28.

“I think it’s one of my favorite covers of Spanish Vogue. This one is a soft, pretty image of Penélope. I like the simple styling…” admired Bertrando3.

Blizzard8358 simply used the word “stunning” to describe the cover.

But not everyone agreed. “I actually like it, but it’s more of a YouTube teaser than a Vogue cover,” critiqued MON.

“Doesn’t look like her. I feel as if I just saw her on the cover,” voiced an uninterested Summer Day.

“Nice picture of Penélope, but the twos in 2021 just drag your eyes straight to them,” justaguy pointed out.

“NO to the hair color, the nude lips, the rosé font, the overplayed Lady Godiva concept… I know it’s Penélope Cruz and that they’ve shot her so much that they’ve run out of ideas, but then get someone else to shoot her. The weak link of course is Nico Bustos,” disapproved Benn98.
