In addition to starring in award-winning films, Penelope Cruz is known for creating unforgettable looks on the red carpet. In the 90s, she often appeared in sleek, bias-cut slip dresses. In recent years, however, Cruise has developed a more-is-more approach to style, favoring voluminous silhouettes adorned with luxurious embellishments. Her latest appearance further confirms her penchant for extravagance, but this time she chose to wear an intricate bodysuit over a dress fit for a princess.
Last night at Lancôme
Cruz wore a black off-the-shoulder sheer lace bodysuit from Giambattista Valli’s Fall/Winter 2023 couture collection, which has all the subtleties you’d expect from a Valli creation. Delicate lace is decorated with a scattering of sequins, there is a black bow on the chest, and a satin train flows from the hips. Cruise topped it all off with a pair of towering black velvet Christian Louboutin platforms, a black satin clutch with a statement silver buckle, and diamond earrings.
While 2022 has seen its moment in nude dressing, Cruz’s theatrical, couture take on this risqué red carpet look shows there’s still room for further experimentation with the trend.
