Ú rsula Cor­beró is a break­out star on the in­ter­na­tional scene best known for play­ing Tokyo in the Span­ish Tele­vi­sion Se­ries, La Casa de Pa­pel, or known in Eng­lish as Money Heist, cur­rently trend­ing on Net­flix. Bvl­gari’s cre­ative di­rec­tor Lu­cia Sil­vestri told Emi­rates Woman in an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view that they chose Ur­sula as the face of this col­lec­tion be­cause “she rep­re­sents many sides of a woman, much like the jew­ellery: she’s fierce, she’s fem­i­nine, she’s young and play­ful, and she also speaks to mil­len­ni­als.” The Fior­ever col­lec­tion is an all-di­a­mond col­lec­tion that in­ter­prets the clas­sic jew­ellery mo­tif, the flower, which is an of­fi­cial sym­bol of the Ro­man jew­eller. The Ital­ian house has been in­ter­pret­ing the flower since the 1920s and this new col­lec­tion sees Bvl­gari’s ex­quis­ite crafts­man­ship come to life in a bold and mod­ern way. Here, Ur­sula chats ex­clu­sively to on her new role as the brand am­bas­sador for Fior­ever. Emi­rates Woman How do you feel about be­ing the new am­bas­sador for the Bvl­gari brand? Very grate­ful and happy. Bvl­gari has a long as­so­ci­a­tion with the world of cin­ema. My favourite ac­tress is Ju­lianne Moore, and I re­mem­ber the cam­paign she did clearly. That they should have asked me to be­come the new am­bas­sador is like a dream, a wish come true. It is an im­mense hon­our for me to be­come 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. 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 helpy­oube­come­this­per­son? Mario told me he wanted me to be my­self; he didn'twant­meto­play­achar­ac­ter.Weall­have 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 mar­vel­lous. What does Bvl­gari rep­re­sent for you? A mod­ern ver­sion of the Dolce Vita. Bvl­gari has been cre­at­ing spec­tac­u­lar pieces of jew­ellery for many years, but it has also been able to adapt to the style of the times. And this is be­cause since the start it has al­ways been a brand with a strong sense of per­son­al­ity. How would you de­scribe your per­sonal sense of style? I don't have a def­i­nite style. I like let­ting my­self be in­spired by what ap­peals 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 for 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 a scat­ter-brain, a party lover, en­er­getic and have a strong per­son­al­ity.
