This week's edition of NET-A-PORTER's digital magazine under Editor-in-Chief Lucy Yeomans features Oscar-winning actress, Penélope Cruz in sultry looks by Michael Kors, Chloé, Gucci, Sophia Kokosalaki, Dolce & Gabbana and Oscar de la Renta.    

In an exclusive interview, the Spanish actress discusses how she has turned her passions into success stories. "I'm a very determined person!" she laughs. Cruz's latest project sees her collaborating with her sister on the first-ever diffusion line from Agent Provocateur. "We both love underwear," says the woman described by filmmaker, Almodóvar as having "the most spectacular cleavage in cinema". "We're very proud of what we've created." The range is sexy, stylish and affordable, and taps into Cruz's own Castilian brand of girl power. "Where I come from, the figure of the woman - the mother especially - is strong, powerful, respected," she says. "Her beauty is just one of her weapons." 

On becoming a mother, Cruz reflects; "When you have children, your attention is put on the more important things. My priority is my family," she says with passion. "That is the way I have been raised." Cruz also finds herself much less interested in the way she looks. "When I'm having my hair and makeup done for a movie or a photo shoot, I never look in the mirror," she says. "I just set up my office there...my script, my notes, my BlackBerry, and I focus on those things. I always have things I have to catch up on, especially now I have children to keep me busy." 

Despite exhaustion, Cruz feels she is at a very fulfilled time in her life. "Every day I appreciate the people I have in my life, the job I am paid to do, the food I have on my plate, and the health that
keeps me going," she says. Age doesn't frighten her, because she has "so much to look forward to"; working - inevitably - with Almodóvar again, taking a role in the theater, immersing herself in her family, feeding her passions for eating well and singing karaoke, and spending some of her hard-earned money on beautiful things ("I love buying clothes - especially on NET-A-PORTER - although it's dangerous, as I get addicted!") 

Tiredness seems a small price to pay. "Hey," she shrugs. "I love to sleep, so tonight I will go to bed at nine o'clock and be very happy."
