It looks like it wasn’t only Fan Bingbing who wore an Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture look to the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony yesterday, as Penelope Cruz did too.

The only thing was Penelope didn’t walk the red carpet.

Why wouldn’t you want to share this stunning nude embroidered strapless lace Elie Saab Couture gown with the world?

Instead she was spotted sneaking in the back door with her boyfriend Javier Bardem, who shared the best actor award at the Cannes film festival with Italian actor Elio Germano on Sunday.

Note to Pen: Couture is not for the back door. Oooh that rhymes.

Such a shame as she looks breath-taking wearing her dress with satin heels and a matching Roger Vivier clutch.
