Penelope Cruz was amazed when rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS asked her to be the face of his first womenswear collection, as she was convinced her image wasn't "urban" enough.

But the Hispanic screen beauty, who recently completed a photo shoot for the hip-hop star's new range, Sean By Sean Combs, was pleasantly surprised when she realised his clothes were sophisticated.

She says, "I was asked to be the spokeswoman for P Diddy's new line.

"I was so surprised because at first I thought the clothes would consist of urban wear, like lots of hoods, but his clothes are so sexy and they made me feel good."
