look very alike?
I found her 50s style to be very inspiring.
The hair, the makeup and the dress, reminded
me of Film Noir and Sophia Loren. (The white
bag is the goody bag, but of course I regretted
Igår var det åpning på Mangos nye butikk på Karl Johan. Søsteren til Penèlope Cruz, Monica Cruz var flydd inn for å kaste glans over åpningen og snakke om deres tredje kolleksjon for den spanske kjeden. Jeg var heldig nok til å få intervju henne, men hun snakket kun spansk, så vi snakket via en tolk. Det var uansett moro og hun var utrolig hyggelig og litt morsom. Hun hadde utstråling og en kul 50-tallsstil. Det var flere kjendiser som hadde tatt veien. Mira Craig, Elin Sogn og Aylar kastet også glans over eventet. Les mer om intervjuet i Du Denne Uken, neste fredag!
Last night, the chain Mango opened a new store in Oslo. In lieu of their limited edition collection designed by the famous Cruz sisters, Monica Cruz was flown in to make an apperance. I was lucky enough to interview her and meet a lot of cool people, so I had a really nice time. Cruz was very down to earth and nice, as she spoke of their inspiration behind the collection. Her 50s style is very inspirational.
S: What are you, as sisters inspired by?
M: I get inspired by watching old movies, especially black & white 50s movies. I love to travel and go see movies in the theatre. When me and my sister (Penèlope) grew up, we used to play around in our moms closet, alwasy dressing up.
S: Describe you and your sister style, do they differ?
M: Yes, very much. I dress more like a 50s movie star and Penèlope is much more classical in her style. I like formfitting dresses and skirts, she is more into jeans and have a very relaxed style when she is not on the red carpet. Even though we are close, we have very different personalities and we dress they we way we are and feel.
S: Is there someone you look up to regarding fashion?
M: My idol is Sofia Loren (no suprise!)and I strive for her sense of style.
S: Every celebrity is designing these days. Are you not afraid that people are tired of designer collections?
M: No, I feel that our collection is different and that we know what we are doing. And it appeals to a lot of women with curves.
S: Do you sometimes feel that you are in the shadow of your sister?
M: No, I am more known in Spain, than in Europe and US, and I am working on several movies. I have a wonderful relationship with my sister and brother.
S: Whats your favorite piece in the collection?
M: I love the dress I am wearing and I also love some of the classics, so the trenchcoat is a wonderful piece. It reminds me of 50-60s glamour.
My favorite: The LBD Monica was wearing and the faux fur bolero.
