Bizarre Short Hair Photoshoots

Penelope Cruz in W Magazine

— August 9, 2008 — Pop Culture
The gorgeous Penelope Cruz is featured in an unusual photoshoot and on the cover of the recent August 2008 issue of W magazine. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Cruz is captured in unique and somewhat weird poses with a super short hair-do.

Cruz was styled by Alex White in a white Tom Ford shirt and black gear from Yohji Yamamoto and Louise Goldin.

The 34-year-old Spanish beauty confesses in the interview that she avoids celebrity gossip, “I try not to go on the Internet and read about myself. It’s a guaranteed way to get angry for no reason. You start looking at yourself from the outside, from the wrong place. And everything is out of proportion. The good things, the bad things—everything.”

“I think it’s disgusting. It’s dangerous and nasty, and bad for our society in so many ways. And it’s getting worse every day. It affects me directly, but I really believe that this culture of gossip affects our society on a much deeper level, on an ethical level. It’s what kids see and hear every day, and it will affect future generations in ways that we cannot even imagine.”

Penelope Cruz has two movies out in August 2008: Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona with Scarlett Johansson and real-life boyfriend Javier BardemAllen, and Elegy alongside Ben Kingsly. Elegy is based on the Philip Roth novel The Dying Animal.
Trend Themes
1. Unconventional Celebrity Photoshoots - The use of weird poses and strange fashion choices in photoshoots of celebrities presents an opportunity to create buzz-worthy content that stands out from traditional photojournalism.
2. Avoidance of Celebrity Gossip - The negative impact of celebrity gossip on society is leading people, especially public figures, to make conscious efforts to avoid it altogether, creating opportunities for platforms and services that provide more positive content.
3. Short Hair Trend in Fashion - The use of short hair in fashion, particularly on women, presents an opportunity to create edgier and unconventional looks that can appeal to younger audiences and those seeking more daring styles.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion Photography - The unconventional and daring style of the Penelope Cruz photoshoot highlights an opportunity for fashion photographers to experiment with unconventional poses and styles that may appeal to younger audiences.
2. Celebrity Media - The negative impact of celebrity gossip is leading to a shift towards more positive and inspirational content, creating opportunities for media outlets that focus on highlighting the positive aspects of famous personalities.
3. Hair and Beauty - The short hair trend seen in the Penelope Cruz photoshoot presents an opportunity for hair salons and beauty companies to capitalize on the trend and offer products and services that cater to people looking for edgier and more unconventional styles.
