Oscars 2014: Penelope Cruz In Giambattista Valli & Chopard

Oscars-chopard-penelope-cruWho: Penelope Cruz

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A soft pink chiffon Giambattista Valli Couture one-shoulder gown with a black bow waistband, teamed with Chopard diamond chandelier earrings and bracelet

Verdict: There is something about Penelope Cruz that she was one of the stars I was excited to see tonight, and she really didn’t disappoint in this romantic cape-like custom Giambattista Valli Couture gown.

In past years we have seen Penelope work sexy and dramatic looks and it was nice to see her work an elegant, romantic look in this Grecian-esq draped gown. I loved everything from the colour to the one-shoulder to the black bow accent nipping in her waist.

Adding to her look was her stunning Chopard jewels, everyone is seems went for statement earrings tonight and these chandelier beauties were divine.

Finishing off her stunning look was flawless make-up and a topknot. Penelope Cruz just knows how to work an Oscars red carpet.

Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue – Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene

ELLE-US-Nov-pcruz-2

American ELLE’s Hollywood issue is one of my favourite magazines to pick up as I love the mix of actresses they go for – and this year is no exception with Reese Witherspoon, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Melissa McCarthy all gracing the cover.

My favourite cover this year is a difficult choice – between Penélope Cruz, who looks stunning wearing a cashmere sweater by The Row and Chopard jewellery – I love how they’ve kept her make-up to a minimal to show off her adorable freckles, and Shailene Woodley, even though this cover looks set for summer rather than autumn wearing Calvin Klein Swimwear there is something different about the pose that makes it stand out.

Reese Witherspoon’s cover is probably the most predictable, but nevertheless she still looks stunning in a sexy Versace number. The cover I think I was most disappointed with was Melissa McCarthy styled in an oversized Marina Rinaldi coat with OTT eighties hair – I can only imagine how much hairspray they used.

Online there also seems to be another two covers featuring Marion Cotillard working the crop top trend in Dior, and British actress Naomie Harris looking absolutely gorgeous in a Calvin Klein Collection wrap halter top and skirt, very similar to the one that Rose Byrne wore to the Primetime Emmys.

Considering this is a November cover there is a lot of skin on show – especially with the main fashion tagline being ‘the perfect coat shape’. It is hard to decide on my favourite but I think it has to be Penélope Cruz as she just looks gorgeous and is really the only one, except for Melissa wearing anything autumn related.

Which cover is your favourite? Also do you think these covers seem more appropriate for spring/summer than November?

Cover Loving: Penelope Cruz For Madame Figaro

There is something mesmerizing about Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, whether it is in a movie, on the red carpet, or on a magazine cover, for me she is a modern-day screen siren that always brings a touch of glamour. I am loving these two covers of her photographed by Nelson Simoneau for French magazine Madame Figaro for their July issue, both flaunt her amazing body.

My favourite cover has to be her wearing that gorgeous Balmain lambskin beaded gold spring/summer 2012 jacket, that alone makes a great cover teamed it over an Eras bathing suit and this is one hot cover. I love the styling, her pose, and most of all her sultry make-up and wet hair.

The second cover is just as stunning, that Stella McCartney mini, which has also been worn by Charlize Theron, looks incredible on her.

I don’t know about you, but for me Penelope Cruz still has it!

To Rome With Love: Penelope Cruz Looks Breathtaking

Who: Penelope Cruz

Where: At the world premiere of her new film ‘To Rome With Love’ directed by Woody Allen in Rome

Wearing: A strapless blush nude lace Dolce & Gabbana gown, with gathering detailing to the hip, teamed with a bronze minaudière

Verdict: This nude colour can sometimes seem a little boring and bland, but against Penelope’s skin tone the colour has a glow about it that worked perfectly with the lace detailing and the body-hugging silhouette of the gown. I am so pleased that she has a big flick coming out as I have kind of missed her of late on the red carpet, and if this Dolce & Gabbana gown is anything to go by this will be one gorgeous promo-tour.

I love everything about this look from the colour of the dress to the sexy silhouette to the way she has braided her hair into a top-knot style, this is one chic look and perfect for a world premiere.
