Penelope Cruz In Givenchy Couture – “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” London Premiere

Ahhh…redemption has never looked so sweet.

Just when I thought Penelope Cruz was in permanent mourning, she arrived on the blue carpet of the “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Premiere in London tonight wearing white.

Her angelic white Givenchy Couture Fall 2010 embroidered dress was just the tonic I needed to put her back in my good books.

I don’t know why she’s been hiding under those black LBDs because she has a wonderful figure. She’s back to her post-baby best.

I love the sleek straight locks and the fact that she didn’t add too many jewels.

A gold clutch completed her look.

Penelope Cruz In Emilio Pucci – “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Moscow Premiere

Penelope Cruz joined her co-star Johnny Depp for the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Moscow Premiere yesterday.

Penelope wore a black Emilio Pucci Fall 2011 dress.

The first thing that springs to mind is; “Is it that cold in Russia?”

Why are celebs so intent in dressing out of season?

Whilst some Fall 2011 looks do work, this velvet embellished long sleeve dress feels so heavy for mid-May look.

I love Pen’s neutral make-up; but I can’t help moaning about the fact that she’s wearing black, again.

It’s going to be a very long and boring promo tour if Penelope doesn’t start mixing things up.

Penelope Cruz In Marchesa – “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” World Premiere

Penelope Cruz looked stunning when she arrived on the red carpet for the World Premiere of “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” in LA yesterday.

The Spanish actress wore a custom Marchesa off-the-shoulder gown.

The black gown was embroidered with feathers and jet crystal details.

Chopard jewels, a high ponytail and nude lips completed her look.

I love that she’s wasn’t afraid to go big and bold wearing this gown.

I just hope she explores other colours on the red carpet during this promo tour.

Penelope Cruz In Oscar de la Renta – 2011 Met Gala

I felt a huge sense of de ja vu when I saw Penelope Cruz on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

I went back over my archives and realised why.

The black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 gown is very similar to the Armani Prive gown she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes.

Penelope’s black silk organza thin strap banded Oscar de la Renta gown with draped detail and mermaid hem was paired with Chopard jewels and a feathered clutch.

Penelope Cruz In L’Wren Scott – Hollywood Walk of Fame

Penelope Cruz is the first Spanish actress to receive the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

For the momentous occasion she opted to wear a Fall 2011 L’Wren Scott lace sheath dress.

Her purple knee length dress with elbow length sleeves was accessorized with black Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps and Chopard jewels.

Cruz is a big fan of L’Wren Scott.

You’ll remember she wore the designer to the 2011 Oscars for her big return to the red carpet.

L’Wren Scott isn’t Penelope’s stylist, you maybe surprised to learn. So her love for the designer is pure.

Penelope was accompanied to the event by family members and Johnny Depp, her co-star in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which opens in theaters May 20.

Penelope Cruz In L’Wren Scott – 2011 Oscars

Best Dressed Couple Award
I refused to believe that Penelope Cruz just had a baby.

The Spanish actress looked breath-taking in red at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

Her fiery L’Wren Scott Spring 2011 gown was decorated with sequins, but she still added more sparkle with Chopard jewels.

Penelope comes second to Nicole Kidman when it comes to loving L’Wren Scott work.

I hope she’s not in any hurry to lose her baby weight, because I think she looks perfect the way she is.

It’s so great to see her back on the red carpet again.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Penelope Cruz In Elie Saab Couture & Kristin Davis In Vintage Jean Desses

I expected you guys to vote for Sarah Jessica Parker BDOTW, but you all fell in love with Penelope Cruz wearing Elie Saab Couture to the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony.

This has to be one of Pen’s best looks this year. She was absolutely glowing.

I think this week should not pass without recognition going to Kristin Davis.

SJP may have grabbed the headlines because of her Alexander McQueen dress and Philip Treacy hat, but Kristin for me had the most impressive run this week for both the New York and London premiere’s and after-parties.

My favourite was her vintage Jean Desses from Decades.

I’m always longing for colour on the red carpet and Kristin gave it to me in this perfect pretty pink vintage dress.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and Bank Holiday weekend.

Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony – Penelope Cruz In Elie Saab Couture

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.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? Penelope Cruz or Dita von Teese

This is not the first time we’ve seen Dita von Teese following in Penelope Cruz’ footsteps.

They both wore the same Alexander McQueen houndstooth pencil dress last year.

On this occasion they both wore this Dolce & Gabbana fringed dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

I really didn’t like it on Penelope Cruz when she wore it to the “Nine” Rome photocall earlier this year.

The tights and the peep-toes watered down the look making the sexy fringe dress plain and boring.

Dita showed Ms Cruz how to wear this dress at “Flaunt Magazine’s April Fashion issue launch party” this weekend.

She remove those horrible bra like straps and added some leather gloves to the amp up the look.

It’s amazing to me that even though Dita attempted to dial down the sexiness of this dress by add a lining and wearing tights, she’s still oozes so much sexy appeal.

Dita wins by a country mile.

This Dolce & Gabbana dress is available to purchase from Luisa via Roma.
