Latinas Eva Mendes & Penelope Cruz Cover Coveted September Fashion Mags

Covering the coveted September issues of Fall fashion magazines isn't an easy feat for anyone who isn't white. That's why Blindie was shocked to see, not one, but two Latinas amongst the lily-white covers (from Keira Knightley on Vogue to Carrie Underwood on Allure) on the newsstands. Marie Claire's cover girl Mendes, who has just debuted her steamy ads for Calvin Klein, is starring in her first female-driven film, The Women, with Annette Bening. “She reminds me of one of those women back in the ‘40s and ‘50s," Mendes says. "She’s a broad, and I want to be a broad. I mean, she’s like Ava Gardner or Bette Davis or Katharine Hepburn. Those women were broads. They said it like it was.” As for Glamour cover girl Cruz, she's starring in two films, including Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Elegy with Ben Kingsley, who tells Glamour, "She comprehends the struggle of the female soul in our confused society. She doesn't have to guess what the vital issues are--she knows."

Ga Ga: Penélope Cruz & Javier Bardem in Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Woody Allen's new film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, is a sexy flick about a ménage-à-trois between Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson. Need we say more? The film, which premiered Monday in Westwood, drew raves at the Cannes Film Festival and Oscar talk for co-stars Bardem and Cruz. Entertainment Weekly film critic Lisa Schwarzbaum raved of the Spanish duo at Cannes, "I'm grateful that, in this festival year of subject-matter darkness and Indiana Jonesy manufactured light, the torch-bright Spanish duo of Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz were on hand in Woody Allen's blithe Iberian romance Vicky Cristina Barcelona to dazzle the Cannes crowd the old-fashioned way with crystalline performances, rather than a crystal skull." Adding to the rave reviews, Variety says, "VCB is by several degrees more hot-blooded than [director Woody Allen's] usual norm, thanks especially due to the palpable chemistry of Bardem and Cruz..." Blindie can't wait for this steamy Allen flick!
