Penelope Cruz In Vintage Atelier Versace – ‘Twice Born’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Even though I have spent the last week oohing and ahhing over stunning gowns during New York Fashion Week, Penelope Cruz came very close to topping them all when she hit the red carpet last night at the ‘Twice Born’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

I’m floored by how gorgeous the Spanish actress is wearing an Atelier Versace gown.

Her vintage Gianni Versace pink gown with draped details and a sexy thigh-high split is the way to do uber sexy in a tasteful, glamorous way.

A Swarovski’s colorful crystal Rosette bangle, nude Versace platform sandals, gold earrings and a Swarovski gold crystal Starlight clutch accessorized her look.

I love the neutral makeup and the side-swept glossy locks which provided the finishing touches.

    Too tight, too ruched, too pink.

    I think this dress looks a little tacky with the gathered waist and high slit because of the colour. If this was in a rich, jewel-tone, I think it would look amazing

    She looks gorgeous but the dress looks kinda blah. It can be cheap looking depending on the lighting and angle.

    OMG… I hate this woman for being completely dead drop gorgeous…. She looks uber sexy…!!

    It’s started getting cold here. But once second I looked at Penelope in this dress? It’s hot like summer again.

  6. Laura September 14, 2012 at 19:22 #

    She looks perfect, omg!

    BDOTW, for sure

    O Penelope, you gorgeous woman!

    I cant give a constructive comment because I just love her no matter what she wears.

  8. Odette September 14, 2012 at 18:47 #

    SWOOOOOOON. *Fanning self*

    FC please BDOTY contender [possibly]?

    THIS IS HOW YOU DO SEXY Jennifer Lopez, Kardashians, Lea Michelle, Rihannas, Katy Perrys, Lady Gagas, Miley Cyrusz and even Selena Gomezez

      I was thinking the SAME thing! Immediately I thought of Lea Michelle and how she would have looked how she always does to me (trying TOO hard) and how well Peneleope pulls this off!

    It’s ok, probably i will forget that look in few hours, so is not that georgeus. Also diffrent hairstyle would be better

  10. Amy September 14, 2012 at 18:10 #

    love the dress, love Penelope. I’d have liked another hairstyle though. Anyway she looks amazing

  11. justme September 14, 2012 at 18:08 #

    This dress is very late 90’s-early 00’s to me.

    I’m glad someone else mentioned Mariah Carey because this is exactly the type of dress she would have worn back when Rainbow came out. Down to the flat-ironed hair.

    i am searching for my Jaw..wohaaaaaaaaaa

  13. Yeliz September 14, 2012 at 17:36 #

    LOVE this look! Another stunning BDOTW contender.

    I agree with Ramsay though, if Mariah Carey had worn this gown, this would have been far away from being a contender.

    Gianni Versace was a genius, my favourite fashion designer ever and I just love this gown. So iconic, so Versace.

  15. Estranged September 14, 2012 at 16:50 #

    I love the gown and I love Penelope, but I don’t like Penelope in this gown.

    • Nat39 September 14, 2012 at 19:32 #

      I can’t say I dislike this gown on Penelope but I don’t think the ruched detailing works well for her in the midsection, a bit widening.

  16. JessCar September 14, 2012 at 16:43 #

    I disagree, not a fan of the gathered bodice or the flat ironed hair. I think she looks like a barbie doll….

    • Natasha September 14, 2012 at 18:42 #

      seriously, I thought I was the only one who thought this. the gathered bodice and slit are not classy, they’re what I would see on a cheap clubbing dress.

    • Aline September 14, 2012 at 19:28 #

      I totally agree. The gathered bodice really bothers me, it makes it seem that the dress is a size too small for her.

    • Reg September 14, 2012 at 19:49 #

      I don’t like it as well. The dress IMO makes her stomach big – the gathering of fabric in the midriff area kind of rounds it out. Also the make up makes her look her age or even a bit older, and usually I am always stunned by how youthful and fresh faced she is. And then the hair is ehhh

      • Taksi September 15, 2012 at 00:17 #

        I agree. Doesn’t flatter her figure at all.

  17. Rebecca Z September 14, 2012 at 16:34 #

    Glamour done right. She looks lovely.

  18. EmmaWoodhouse September 14, 2012 at 16:29 #

    Not being a fan of slits, I’m not a fan of this. However, I know I’ll be the only one 😉 Penelope sure is gorgeous–the hair (if only she had swept back that wisp across her forehead!), makeup, earrings, clutch and shoes are good, and the soft pink is delightful on her. I just don’t like the dress.

  19. Ramsay September 14, 2012 at 16:27 #

    Yes it’s amazing – one of the best this year – but let’s face it it’s mostly because of her, on Mariah Carey this would’ve looked tacky, on Penelope it’s stunning

    • Tina September 14, 2012 at 17:25 #

      I completely agree – on Mariah Carey I would have called this a try-hard.

    • Ahot September 15, 2012 at 15:32 #

      Love the dress, meh on the shoes & on the hair.

      AND leave Mimi alone lol! It´s not her fault if she does not know how to show some restrain on the redcarpet! She was born a Diva, & thus can do no wrong. 😛

  20. Alina September 14, 2012 at 16:25 #

    Just WOW!

  21. Moxie September 14, 2012 at 16:24 #

    Worthy of a spot on the BDOTW poll.

  22. dee September 14, 2012 at 16:21 #

    She looks stunning. One of her best looks.
