Penelope Cruz In Versace & Balmain 44 François Premier – ‘Loving Pablo’ Madrid Photocall & Premiere

Penélope Cruz offered up a duet of strong looks at both the Madrid photocall and premiere for ‘Loving Pablo’ on Tuesday (March 7) in Spain.

Photocall: Naturally, the Versace devotee donned a look from the Versace Spring 2018 collection. I really like the cool-girl, tribute-inspired attitude of the look with the studded leather jacket and the Medusa belt. My feeling is that, in person, the intricate play of black textures between the sheer pleated miniskirt, the tights and the slouchy boots were a bit more successfully defined than as captured in photographs.

Premiere: All-out glam was alive and well in this Balmain 44 François Premier design that can only be described as a power gown. The collection is Balmain’s eveningwear capsule, named after the Paris address of Pierre Balmain’s original couture atelier. The retro spirit of the asymmetrical bold shoulder and glitziness are a given, but then again, that’s what this dress was all about.

    The first look is better without the slouchy boots and the second is just a mess.

      +1 I don’t understand those boots. The bottom needs a sleeker shoe sot balance out the volume on top. The dress is so unflattering in design and also not tailored.

    I think the Versace look would have been better with not slouchy boots but I love the outfit anyway. The Balmain dress is gorgeous but it makes her look boxy.
    But wow, she looks so beautiful!

    The runway styling of the first was much preferred with the jacket unzipped, sleeves down, with the runway leggings/boots and straight slicked back hair though Penelope’s hair is lush. The Balmain just looks like it was made for someone a foot taller.

    Both of these are so unflattering.

    I really dislike both of these looks and I’m usually a big fan of Penelope’s style. The first one looks awkwardly girlish on her (albeit, edgy girlish) and the second is an ill-fitted monstrosity.

      Monstrosity is a fair description.

    The fitting of the Balmain dress is so ill. It is too big for her.

      +. I don’t get why she wore this dress. She can’t get clothes in the right size ?!
