What defines an “It” girl? Her effervescent charm? Her spontaneous instincts and joyous love for life? Or maybe it’s her striking good looks that jump off the screen and make you take a step back? Perhaps it’s all these factors, that when combined, catch lightning in a bottle in the form of a woman many become hypnotized by.
In the case of Úrsula Corberó, a Spanish star on the rise, her solar energy exudes a positivity hard to resist, making her the epitome of an “It” girl, with the talent to back it up. Though there might not be a patented formula for reaching the highest pinnacles of success (as far as we know), Corberó is paving her own path.
Actress, model, and now face of the new Bulgari jewelry collection, Fiorever, the stunner beams a passion for life similar to that of the most beautiful flower. Known for her work in Netflix hit La Casa de Papel, Corberó is taking the world by storm as the breakout star we have our eyes on. This might be why the iconic Italian jewelers picked the natural beauty and her love for la dolce vita as the face of the Fiorever collection. Dripping in blooming flowers crafted from the finest diamonds, Corberó enchants in striking images captured by legendary photographer Mario Sorrenti.
In an exclusive interview with Savoir Flair, the Bulgari ambassador chats with us about everything from shooting with Sorrenti to her love for Julianne Moore and the role accessories play in her personal style.
How do you feel about being the new ambassador for the Bulgari brand?
Very grateful and happy. Bulgari has a long association with the world of cinema. My favorite actress is Julianne Moore, and I remember the campaign she did clearly. That they asked me to become the new ambassador is like a dream; a wish come true. It is an immense honor for me to be a part of this family.
This campaign has brought you together with Mario Sorrenti. How did you feel in front of his camera? Can you describe what it was like working with him?
When they told me that Mario was going to shoot the campaign, I didn’t quite believe it. Mario is an icon. Knowing him has been a privilege. He is a person who transmits a great sense of calm, but he is also keenly aware of his surroundings and he is very observant. I hope life will bring us together again; I love chatting with him, and playing in front of his camera, I felt free.
We all have many characters within ourselves; we are not just one person.
The idea of turning into a new person is very interesting for the spectator; as an actress you experience this in your work. What kind of woman did you have in mind during the Fiorever shoot? How did Mario help you become this person?
Mario told me he wanted me to be myself; he didn’t want me to play a character. We all have many characters within ourselves; we are not just one person. He gave me permission to experiment with different moods with each change of clothing, staging and setting. I let myself go and it was marvelous.
What does Bulgari represent for you?
A modern version of the ‘Dolce Vita’. Bulgari has been creating spectacular pieces of jewelry for many years, but it has also been able to adapt to the style of the times. And it’s because of this that since the start, it has always been a brand with a strong personality.
How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t have a definite style. I like letting myself be inspired by what appeals to me every day. My mood is not always the same, so my style can’t be either. What I do know is that I like comfortable clothes that are powerful. I like mixing styles, especially formal and informal. I love high heels, sweatshirts, and transparency. As to accessories, they always help me finish off my look. I love hooped earrings, handbags, and sunglasses.
How do people who really know you well describe you?
They tell me that I am scatter-brained, a party lover, and energetic with a strong personality.
