Penelope Cruz Covers Vogue Spain & W Magazine: Which One Is Her Best? (PHOTOS, POLL)

The star goes head-to-head with... herself?

We've come to the conclusion that it's pretty much impossible to snap a bad photo of Penelope Cruz. The 38-year-old has come to embody a Sophia Loren-esque feminine allure that makes men stop in their tracks. So we're sure more than a few dudes will be taking pause at newsstands as soon as her latest Vogue Spain cover makes it stateside.

The actress is featured on the black and white November cover in a look that definitely harkens back to classic bombshells. Sexy bustier? Check. Teased updo and winged-out eyeliner? Check and check. Penelope's even rocking an old-school crucifix in the Tom Munro-lensed shoot -- definitely the definitive touch. (The dress is from Armani Prive's fall collection, in case you were wondering.)

But this isn't the "To Rome With Love" star's only big cover featuring a front-and-center crucifix. Penelope landed W magazine's September 2012 cover, featuring the Latina star in a turtleneck and an oversized, embellished blue cross necklace. Are we sensing a styling theme here?

And since Penelope is in a league of her own when it comes to beauty, we thought it would only be fitting to pit the star against herself in a magazine cover war. So check out both crucifix-centric covers below and tell us which one you prefer.
