Red appears to be the colour of the week.

Georgina Chapman, Ciara, Ashley Roberts, and Meryl Streep have all worn this bold colour on the red carpet this week, and now we can add the beautiful Penelope Cruz to that list of scarlet women.

Penelope was in London for her “Broken Embraces” at Somerset House last night. and she looked outstanding wearing a red Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 suit with Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 wedges which had a cut-out detail in the heel.

The colour was beautiful against her glowing skin.  I don’t think many can pull off a red suit.

I like the way she turned up the pants and kept the jewelry to a minimum.

I wouldn’t have looked twice at the runway look, but Penelope would’ve made me break my neck to get a second glance.

Yes I’m gushing as I love her here.
