What's Penelope Cruz's Red Carpet Personality?

Posted on

Nominated for Best Actress for her role in Volver, Penelope Cruz is the Romantic of this year’s award season.

Signature Look: Strapless and sleeveless gowns (the better to show-off her toned arms) with nipped-in waists. Cruz’s dresses are often embellished with romantic details such as ruffles, lace and bodice-enhancing ruching. Her go-to beauty look? Lush hair and dramatic eye makeup, finished off with a nude mouth.

Favorite Designers: Oscar de la Renta, Chanel and Valentino, with shoes by Luciano Padovan. Cruz also favors simple diamond jewelry by Chopard and Cartier.

What She Will Wear: Though her stylists have looked at sketches from serveral designers, insiders say she is likely to wear Dior.
