Glance at the cover of the July 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar España featuring Blanca Padilla and bullfighter Jose Maria Manzanares and castanets and the staccato of Spanish guitar can practically be heard. This cover is in many ways the apotheosis of Spanish fashion of the 1950s shot in manner that calls to mind some of Diana Vreeland’s most memorable Bazaar covers. Styled by Beatriz Moreno de la Cova, this cover features Blanca wearing Dolce & Gabbana, the same Italian label in whose Spring 2015 campaign the Spanish beauty appears. That collection drew from Spanish influences as does this cover, which is reason to cheer. ¡Olé!
