Penelope Cruz in L’Wren Scott (x2)

Posted on September 26, 2012

Oh, what the hell. Let’s declare it “Ridiculously Hot Spaniard Day” here at T Lo Ethnic Holidays, LLC. ¡Los españoles calientes, darlings! We slapped a couple pictures of her hot husband up, so let’s take a look at what Penny’s doing with herself.

Penelope Cruz arrives at the Maria Cristina Hotel during the 60th San Sebastian International Film Festival in L’Wren Scott. Black satin pumps by Ferragamo.

That’s a killer goddamn look. And unlike 99% of red carpet looks, we bet a lot of the ladies reading this could rock this exact outfit. We’ve said it before and we’ll keep on saying it: we are big proponents of ladypants for public appearances. Sure, the princess gowns and couture looks are nice, but nothing says “stylish” to us more than a lady rocking the pants on the RC. These pants are the perfect length for a pair of big-ass pumps and we love that they have a cuff to them. They’re a tiny bit tight across the hips, but not so much that it ruins the look. The sweater’s gorgeous too. Just a perfectly chic little look that could be interpreted by a whole range of ladies.

But wait, we have one more hot Spanish look to show you!


Penelope Cruz attends the ‘Venuto al Mondo’ (Volver A Nacer) photocall during the 60th San Sebastian International Film Festival  in L’Wren Scott. Black satin pumps by Ferragamo.

Simple and perfect. She owns the shit out of that dress. We don’t really mind a matchy bag in this case, but we wish the pink of the bag didn’t clash with the pink of the dress.

Oh, what the hell. Let’s just call it a Double-WERQ and be done with it. Flamenco snaps, girl!

    Oddly enough, the thing I was most impressed by was how her shoes actually seem to fit. I get so sick of seeing pics where ladies look like kids trying on Mother’s pumps. 

    • pattyw

       I fixated on the same thing–“her shoes fit!” Clearly, I spend too much time on this blog looking at shoes that don’t.

      • theblondette

         I seriously do not understand loaner shoes when the celebrities who wear them could ALL afford to buy them. Borrowing a $20,000 dress makes sense. Borrowing $500 shoes? *I* would borrow $500 shoes, because heck no can I afford them, but it seems like a false economy for rich actresses to wear borrowed, ill-fitting, bunion-forming shoes.

    • Or, conversely, like evil step sisters, trying to cram their tootsies into a teensy glass slipper.

    •  My guess is that she buys her own damn shoes — that’s what I would do!  I wear a size 9 or larger with a very difficult to fit foot (narrow heel, wide ball), so I buy them to fit my heel and use a stretcher thingie to make them comfortable for me.  I wouldn’t wear free shoes for long now, and I certainly wouldn’t do it at all if I was making that kind of money.

      • Lori

        My sister of the hard to fit feet. I have the same shape foot, but I’m consistently at least a 9 1/2 and usually a 10. Shoe shopping is not my favorite pastime.

        • Jessi03

          10.5 narrow with high arches.  I feel your pain.  Literally.

    • A. W.

      I wish I had that problem. I’m a true-to-size 43, meaning I walk around in pain most days. 🙁

    • jmorino08

       Yes! I thought the same thing!

  • momogus

    She looks like that and she’s married to Javier Bardem. Life is not fair.

    • Normally I reserve my envy for real life situations, but when I see her, I turn green. 

    • AudreysMom

       added to that, she has real talent! Talk about belonging to the 1%.

    • TieDye64

      Ridiculously hot couple. 

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        So they are…and they could have more little Javiers and Penelopes and creat their own race of superhot people.

    • Lisa_Cop

      Thank God! Remember when she was dating Tom Cruise?

      • LuisaNL

         *shudders* let’s never mention that again, please.

      • SassieCassy

        that was a ‘wtf is you doing girl’ moment in her history, best left forgotten

        • CurbGirl

          and we all have those, don’t we? 

      • sekushinonyanko

        I think that was just her earning enough karma to be where she is now.

  • IAmJ

    And this is exactly why I proudly call her my No. 1 Girl Crush.

  • Jill_3

    Technically, it would be “Los Españoles calienteSSS”, but dont mind my nitpicking, I’m just a rather OCD half-Spaniard. But Penelope is doin’ my people PROUD.

  • How is Penelope Cruz still so hot? I am in love with her.

    • filmcricket

      She’s actually hotter than she was a decade ago. Which is ludicrously unfair.

    • nancylee61

      It’s because she looks genuine and like she is actually happy to be there, as opposed to all the actresses who pose and pimp for the camera and look like they are doing everyone a favor showing up. Look at her smile. It is real – made me like her a lot.

  • Anathema_Device

    Yes! I love being on the same wavelength as my beloved T Lo. I was just saying in the other thread that she and her husband need to stop hogging all the hotness, but I’ll let them have it. As long as they allow to bask in it.

    She does look effortlessly beautiful here. A little more jewelry with the second look–even just a bracelet–would have elevated the look a lot.

    • AudreysMom

       Is it me or are her highlights the same as Javier’s?

      • Anathema_Device

         Haha, yes, I think you’re right. Maybe they got a two-for-one Groupon deal or something?

        • AudreysMom

           Probably, because I’m sure they need to save money. Poor Penny and Javier. You just never see the two of them in anything these days.

  • Sobaika

    She looks so perfectly chic in the caridgan/pants combo.

    • mshesterp

      I covet that outfit SO HARD.  I need to recreate it, or a facsimile of it in various colors RIGHT NOW.  God, that pants/sweater/heels combo is amazing.

    • Agreed on the clothing.  And I am totally fascinated by the way the sweater either buttons or Penelope has chosen to button it.

      The toe of the shoe, however, looks like the snout of a primeval beast.

    • Lisa_Cop

      I love that neither of these looks are too dressy. Also love that, having been to San Sebastián, I know where she is standing (near their modern opera house).

  • I want both of those outfits, or more precisely, I want someone to buy them and give them to me.

  • mjude

    double werq indeed

  • kelsita421

    that shade of pink is making her skin/coloring sing even more than usual. le sigh.

  • ojosazules

    I love it when the werq seems effortless. She does this twice. 

  • MissMariRose

    Maybe it’s the pants, but she reminds me of Princess Letizia in that first 2 photos. 

  • Judy_J

    Ole’!  I adore that black sweater/slacks ensemble.  And that dress is perfect on her.  Love that she worked the same shoes with both outfits.

  • ccinnc

    She looks fabulous.

  • Cathy S

    She’s fabulous. Both looks are fantastic.

  • j_anson

    She is looking awesome in both of these. Although she appears to be about 12 in the second set; is she sharing some kind of fountain of youth with Gwen Stefani? Anyway, I love the pants outfit and its cute cuff detail – though my one quibble with the “lots of folks could rock this” analysis is that it’s mostly right but that particular hemline would stumpify a lot of women who don’t have Penelope Cruz’s legs.

    • She’s drinking from the fountain of Javier Bardam, that’s enough to give anyone the glow of youth and beauty. Sigh.

      • deb ruberto

        WELL DONE! 

  • neofashionista

    I am sure the red clutch in real life is all kinds of leather awesomeness but in the photo it looks a little like a soggy wet red diaper… no me gusta…. but otherwise she looks phenomenal i really like the first look

    • kimmeister

      It looks like a cheap makeup bag to me.

  • jmorino08

    She looks like an ad for White House Black Market in that sweater and pants combo… in a good way! 

  • TomBord

    To think she was this close to being Tommy-Girls’ girl.

  • Introspective

    I love both outfits, but that black and white is pure perfection.

    stunning without trying. nice work if you can get it…

  • Imasewsure

    Triple WERQ since she gets points for her hot husband too… awesome…. please continue to procreate

  • You’re feeling very generous today with the Double-WERQ boys and double points to her for using the same shoes twice!

  • you’renotmysupervisor!!

    Wowie Zowie!!  Such a great ambassador for L’Wren Scott, just suits her perfectly.  Stunning, beautiful, WOMAN. 

    (and bye-bye pregnancy rumors!)

  • RocknRollmom

    The frightening thing is pictures do not do her justice.  I flew on a plane a few years back with her across the aisle from me.  Stunning even though a middle of the night red eye.  And, though a given, tiny tiny tiny. I would love either outfit, but L’Wren Scott is so NOT in the budget.  And I don’t want to think about what my hips would look like in those adorable black pants.

    • PinkLemon

       Right? Those pants are KILLA but also KILLER to lady hips-thighs-waists. I couldn’t wear pants that high with a sweater that short. Also the sweater looks like something my mom owns, so, no.

      • RocknRollmom

        And I love the sweater!  But then I could probably be your mom.  In my defense I will note that both of my daughters would like the sweater as well.  It is a classic.  A good investment piece that could be worn at 20 and at 80.  Lord, that makes me sound old. But that “theory” has justified many a purchase.

  • carolynmo

    “Flamenco snaps”– I’m stealing that phrase, if you don’t mind.

  • Oh, not bloody likely!  I couldn’t jam my ass into those pants and probably never could.  Now if I had her body…..

  • BrooklynBomber

    Two personal bests!

  • alyce1213

    Both simply gorgeous.
    Salma Hayak, eat your heart out.  You may have the billionaire, but Ms Penelope has Javier Bardem AND good taste.

  • Zippypie

    The black pants are a bit tight, but she’s looking smokin hot.

  • Contralto

    Fantastic, all the way around.  Particularly adore the first look.

  • another_laura

    She looks great in both looks and so, well, Spanish.  Brava, diva!

  • MilaXX

    She looks great in both pictures, but I think the pink bag is kind of ugly.

  • prettybigkitty

    The pinks clash?  Weird, I think they are quite complementary without being too matchy-matchy.  Love both looks.

  • LOVE both looks! The pink is gorgeous on her skin tone!

  • Trisha26

    Love the black & white pants look! Love! The dress looks cheap & cheaper with the purse.

  • glennethph

    Her vajayjay seems to want to hulk out in those pants.

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    I agree with beloved Uncles, it’s so refreshing to see a celebrity in something that a normal person (me) could rock – that cardigan and pants set is perfectly fitted, yet could be worn by all kinds of bodies.  Encouragement for those precious unborn fawns like me who don’t have the perfect body.  

  • Monabel

    Pinks do not clash. They just conversate.

    • kimmeister


      • Adriana_Paula

        Conversate is one of my favorite words that don’t exist.

        • alyce1213

          Tee hee. Also works well with a letter switch – conservate.

  • Uh-oh. Looks like I’d better hide the internet from my husband, If he sees these pictures I’ll never get it back!

  • unbornfawn

    And she did it with one pair of shoes.

  • Ole!

  • I love the first look. That pink clutch is making my eye twitch in the second look. 

  • Larkin21

    Love both looks so much! She looks outstanding.

  • Lilak

    Clothing?  Accessories?  I can scarcely tear my eyes away from that fabulous FACE.

  • Mary229

    She looks so ungodly beautiful here.   But even on the days when she misses I give her a pass.  She’s in another league of actress.

  • CMS

    The only comment I would add is that the shoes are perfect with the first outfit (which I covet) but maybe a tad too heavy with the second outfit (which I also covet).

  • lilazander

    I don’t think she gives much shit what ‘others’ talk abouther; she knows she looks stunning, and yes, she does.
