Penelope Cruz In Balmain – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Penélope Cruz paid a visit to ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Tuesday (January 16) to discuss her role in ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.’

If you were expecting Versace, you will be surprised to know that the Spanish actress wore a Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 look.

At the LA premiere, she donned Stella McCartney so it will be interesting to see if and when she wears the Italian label.

This embellished jacket might be a lot of look for a daytime show, but she carried it off with the simple black top and jeans.

The bow might not have been necessary given the heavy embellishment, but it plays into the designer’s aesthetic. Plus, it adds a quirky, girlish finish we don’t often get from the French fashion house.

The tall boots added a luxurious touch without competing with the statement topper.

    Something tells me she isn’t going to be wearing Versace during this particular promo.

      The Versace family don’t approve of the movie so, nope, she won’t be wearing Versace.

        it’s interesting to note, however, that Donatella approved Penelope playing her. Penelope told Ellen that she called her to get her approval which apparently she got. And Donatella even sent her flowers before the Golden Globes.

        So, i don’t wouldn’t entirely rule out her wearing Versace on this promo tour.

          It is true that Penelope got Donatella’s approval before taking the role and that Donatella sent her a bunch of flowers before the premiere last week. Versace has stated, however, that they will not be dressing any of the stars of the series for their promotional duties.

          “The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace,” the family said in a statement Monday. “Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction.”

    A sexy look from her though it does feel more suited for a late night interview than daytime tv.
