Penelope Cruz had food poisoning prior to this premiere, but who would believe her when she looks this great.
I must have searched through hundreds of pictures to find one of her on her own, because in nearly every photo she was held by Director Pedro Almodovar, and at times her dress became distorted and I wanted the perfect picture.
Penelope was sensational last night wearing a lilac chiffon draped strapless Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, with an embroidered bodice.
Again I’m loving the bare neck, as the bodice dazzles enough. I also love the way her hair is softly pulled back.
I fell out of love with Pen around awards season, but she’s back to her best here.
Actress Lea Seydoux walked the red carpet wearing the first Chanel gown at a premiere during Cannes Film Festival.
Her teal halter gown is from the Fall 2008 collection, which features black leather criss cross strips, and Celtic crosses.
For me the runway version works better with the 3 crosses, and the leather strips tied to the back rather than falling down the front skirt of the gown.
Denise Rich wears the yellow version of same Emilio Pucci silk halter gown which Michelle Ye wore earlier this week.
What a week for fabulous green gowns.
Picking my top 5 Cannes gowns, may just have to be stretched to 10.
Michelle – imo – has never looked better than in this pleated green one-shouldered Versace gown.
Her emerald earrings are the perfect compliment to her gown.
