Penelope Cruz In Emilio Pucci – ‘To Rome With Love’ Rome Photocall

Penelope Cruz was in Rome, Italy today with Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Roberto Benigni, director Woody Allen and Medusa president Giampaolo Letta to attend the photocall of her latest movie ‘To Rome With Love’ at the Hotel Parco dei Principi.

The Spanish beauty was in all black wearing an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 off-the-shoulder dress.

Her classic LBD with folded details, a peplum and a thigh-high split looks a tad snug I have to say.

I think the look would’ve been more polished had she gone up a size and smoothed out her ponytail.

Patent black leather Casadei pumps and silver hooped earrings completed the look.

Thumbs up or down?

    Check out that posse. All black and goofy. They looked as though they were in a black comedy which opened with a funeral scene and went backward to tell the story. Penelope’s dress is a big fail. My eyes went straight to Jesse Eisenberg. He’s hot and so talented and finally a grown man look!

    I looked at all the photos and can’t really say I saw any that made the dress look too tight. I do agree that a neater hairstyle would have made a world of difference.

    I love her, but she can do SO much better.

    I don’t think it’s boring it’s been ages since last time I saw Penelope not looking like if she was trying very hard (I think it’s kinda refreshing), the only thing I don’t like is the earrings (I’m not a fan of hooped earrings).

    Boring and messy, like she made no effort at all. Maybe she is stressed out with the new baby.

    Not her best effort, but I don’t really think the dress is too small. She needed color and better hair and I’d have liked it better.

    Boring. Basic.

    Boring, unflattering and altogether horrible. One of her worst looks.

    Bad – don’t like it one bit.

  11. robbie April 13, 2012 at 14:30 #

    she nearly put me to sleep, this look is boring.

  12. dee April 13, 2012 at 14:30 #

    Not a good look.

  13. Sam April 13, 2012 at 14:28 #

    Thumbs up!
    Penelope looks beautiful, she got curves and a stunning face and above all she has got a special aura! the dress makes her look like those italian actresses from the ’60’s and I don’t get all this criticism!

    oh so down. it looks like she slept in this (it also looks like it was a very rough night). terrible.

    • manja April 13, 2012 at 14:53 #

      hahaha good one

  15. Eimear April 13, 2012 at 14:15 #

    Hmm.. the wispy hair isnt not helping! A tight bun or completely down woulda been better, seems like she didnt bother with her hair.

  16. Alina April 13, 2012 at 14:05 #

    Thumbs down.

    The entire looks is messy.

    • Saree April 13, 2012 at 15:16 #

      Agreed – she looks like she didn’t finish getting ready.

      Like she got outta bed, whacked on the dress and out the door.

      • Artemis April 13, 2012 at 15:45 #

        +1 Boring!

  17. AW April 13, 2012 at 13:58 #

    Thumbs down.

    The fit is terrible. It’s horribly unflattering because she looks straight up and down. The waist needed to be nipped in and even the neckline is bad.

    The shoes are just dirty icing on top of a crummy cake.

    Additionally, the makeup and black dress combination makes her look ill.

    • Emi April 14, 2012 at 08:18 #

      I quite agree with you. I like the shoes, ok, they’re the boring black pumps, but I like them anyway. But she looks like she just got out of the bed…
