In or Out: Penelope Cruz
Penelope Cruz attends the ‘Broken Embraces’ premiere at the Grand Theatre Lumiere during the 62nd Annual Cannes Film Festival.
We’re not quite sure what’s going on here. Marchesa is normally not to our taste – too ethereal, too drapey-foldy constructed, WAY too “THIS DRESS WAS MEANT FOR THE RED CARPET!” But we can usually admit that, for what it is, it’s done well and quite often the dresses are pretty.
This is another pretty dress, for the most part. It’s a lovely color (even if it is a little bridesmaid) and because it’s Marchesa, it drapes beautifully. But what the hell is going on with that bust? We realize that a bust like that needs some major behind-the-scenes architecture in order to stay in place, but it’s SO stiff-looking and so… far away from her actual boobs that it looks more like an armored breastplate than the bodice of a red carpet gown. There’s this weird disconnect between the floaty, wispy bottom of the dress and the rigid, overconstructed top.
We don’t know. It’s weird. You judge it.
