May 9, 2018 Runway To Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz In Chanel Couture – Cannes Film Festival Gala Dinner

Like Fan Bing Bing and Lea Seydoux, Penelope Cruz had a second look for the Cannes Film Festival Gala dinner on Tuesday (May 8) in France.

Her second Chanel Couture look hailed from the Spring 2018 collection.

The modified look has an ethereal, fairytale like quality that she doesn’t usually go for, but the magic of Cannes has always been celebrities breaking out of their comfort-zone – remember Olivia Palermo in animal print Roberto Cavalli?

I have two reservations about this look.

1. I would’ve preferred the upper layer acting like a train as we see on the runway and;
2. I wish she had worn her hair up.

The look was styled with a Chanel clutch and Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

    Looooooooove this dress. Penelope is one of the few celebrities who can wear Chanel and look amazing. I love how ethereal this looks on her.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this to Penelope but she looked so matronly in this.

    Im surprised by the dislike.
    I think she looks ethereal and fabulous. It is far lovelier on her than the runway I find.
    I find the runways look ridiculously ugly, proportionately ill.
    I am not even bothered by her hair.

    I think this is such a delicate, exquisite dress. Despite agreeing with you on both points Catherine, I can’t help but love it on her

    The dress could’ve been charming despite the issues, but it also doesn’t call for that kind of hairstyle (or lack of). As it is, it looks lazy and not effortless.

    I wish she had worn her hair up, at least.

    I’m a bit confused by the dress, I’m not sure I get the combination of long dress with babydoll. Odd. Also, it looks too tight around the chest.

    Pretty but it has a baby-doll feel to it. Too twee for Penelope.

    This just looks sad

    I like it on the model, not the modified version Penelope is wearing.

      +2 I feel like this dress would have worked really well on someone pregnant

  12. Caroline May 9, 2018 at 4:29 pm #

    It’s different for her so I like it.

  13. Maria F. May 9, 2018 at 4:12 pm #

    yeah, i am not sure about this. I do not think she is the person for this dress.

  14. Susie May 9, 2018 at 4:07 pm #

    I agree with you on both points, Catherine.

    Overall still like this a lot on Penelope because it’s different from the tight-fitting dresses she typically goes for.
