The ever-so-gorgeous Penelope Cruz has a new gig, and, she’s now the face of Chanel. According to the iconic fashion house, the American Crime actress has been chosen as both the face of their cruise campaign and their latest brand ambassador. It’s no secret over the years that Cruz has been “pretty much after a gig at Chanel” and now she has it per reports.
Cruz’s first appearance for Chanel began in 1999 during one of their fashion shows, and, of course her most memorable Chanel-clad appearance was at Broken Embraces in the 2000’s. The announcement came as Cruz attended a Haute Couture Chanel show in Paris this week to mark her formal appearance as the ambassador to Chanel.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure,” Cruz told WWD in her official announcement to them of her brand ambassadorship role.
