Penelope Cruz’s New Venture

Penelope Cruz


It seems like Penelope Cruz has gotten even sexier after motherhood. She has written and directed this racy lingerie commercial after teaming up with her sister Monica Cruz and Agent Provocateur for L’Agent; a lower-priced diffusion line from the Cruz sisters.  According to this article I read in the Huffington Post,  Monica and Penelope will design the pieces and will name and promote them.

The video stars Irina Shayk and Spanish actor Miguel Angel. Javier Bardem, Penelope’s husband, also does a cameo here along with her sister  Monica Cruz in a bright-pink lace maternity  neglige.

The video is about a guy who walks into a place full of beautiful women and gets handed a pair of sunglasses which gives him a very sexy perspective of the place, and I mean very sexy.  When I showed the video to my husband he asked ” Is this a commercial for sunglasses?” I am sure he would love to buy some, and so would many other men.  I hope Penelope’s intention is to inspire all of these men to go out and buy their wives or girlfriends some of her lingerie.  One thing is for sure; she would sell billions of these sunglasses. But on the video, the guy could only see the women’s lingerie and not the men’s underwear…hmm  - Maybe Penelope and her sister should design something nice for men too; what do you think?

I read this article  which questions….. is this video seductive and sexy or lecherous and creepy? 

A very interesting project by Penelope Cruz. You can also visit her website at  What do you think?
