Spanish actress Penélope Cruz looks stunning once again in Lancôme’s newest campaign, barely three months after giving birth to her second child. Penélope has a baby girl, Luna, and a boy, Leo, with actor Javier Bardem, also from Spain.
To honor the launch of Trésor Lumineuse, Lancôme has created a special short film directed by famed Hollywood director Rob Marshall – whose credits include “Chicago”, “Memoirs of a Geisha”, and “Nine”. The short film tells a traditional yet modern love story, starring Academy Award winning actress Penélope Cruz and boxer Ilay Kurelovic.
In the film, Penélope plays an actress in love with a daring professional boxer. Rob Marshall directs the actors through the story of a powerful man and an independent woman in love – and life’s failed attempts to separate them. Over the course of a three-day shoot amidst a team of hundreds, Marshall used all of his directorial and choreographic mastery to showcase the chemistry between this intense duo. In a special behind-the-scenes video, the director discusses how he directed his actors through both speech and gesture, yet gave them the freedom to fully embrace the emotion of each scene. The final product is a beautiful love story – interwoven with passion and sensuality.
