      I like this much better than the gold version.

      Her head and face are killer

    • bertkeeter

      Classic GOOD!

    • Lattis

      I don’t know. From a distance – since you can’t see the pattern of the lace when it is dark on dark – it looks a lot like my dark couch covered with my dear sweet loving INCREDIBLY SHEDDY Australian Shepherd’s hair.

      • conniemd

        Or my golden retriever! You can’t see any pattern with the black metallic version, just looks like a bunch of fery fine gold squigglies.

    • Missy

      So…is it just me or did the holiday season come early in celebrity-dom this year? There’s a lot of Christmas ornament in this.

    • foodycatAlicia

      I love the gold over navy, but I think the shape is a bit mature for her. Pack this up and send it to Queen Helen.

      • Donyelle

        On Queen Helen it would be va va va voom

      • GreenTurtle

        This would look great on Helen- right up her alley, too. Good call.

    • Mismarker

      Not a fan of the dress or the ombre hair but her face and body look amazing.

    • MilaXX

      Glad she changed the color. As much as I like this, I can’t help but feel it’s a bit too covered up & a little mature. I think I’d have preferred it sleeveless or with a more open neckline.

    • hughman

      She’s really looking like young Raquel Welch here.

    • Imasewsure

      I think it’s too heavy as a long dress… would have preferred it as a cocktail dress… and is she at the same event as her slob & banker co-stars? Typical…

    • Garcia Loca

      Bitch don’t age.

    • lexilexi

      She looks amazing…………. she just had a baby less than 3 months ago. brava. I hate you.

    • International Model

      Stop walking through golden bushes before getting to red carpet.

    • decormaven

      Ok, if you’re going to PR the ring, let us get a decent glimpse of it. Some of us enjoy looking at jewelry, and there’s been mighty slim pickings as of late.

    • Anne

      She is a vision of perfection.

    • misstressofsylar

      didn’t she give birth the same time Kate did? I wish I looked this good BEFORE pregnancy!

    • filmcricket

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: forget Brangelina, she and Javier are the gorgeousest celeb couple there is.

    • Jacquelyn

      Her hair is to die for!

    • MishaFoomin


    • Heather

      It’s a bit much for a film screening, no? But damn, girl just had a baby. Bow down.

    • IrmaLaDuce

      I can still remember the first time I saw Miss Cruz. It was on the big screen in All About My Mother. She was mesmerizing. As I watched the film, I thought she was the most beautiful women I’d ever seen.

      The nun’s habit she wore for that movie was more flattering than these itchy looking widow weeds.

      • Qitkat

        I swear I did not read any posts before I wrote the following:

        Though I can’t recall the year or the circumstances, I still remember the first time I became aware of her, and she literally took my breath away I thought she was so beautiful.

    • marlie

      It’s nice, but the dress is clearly too long for her – the hem is too long, and the sleeves are too long. But other than needing some more color on her lips, her hair and makeup are gorgeous.

    • Trickytrisha

      This one is a puzzlement for me – should have worked better, since all the elements are there. I guess the underdress is too dark for the lace to do its job. It doesn’t detract from the fact that she is one lovely lady though.

    • quiltrx

      The black/metallic gold over the navy is really interesting. It moves your eye around to see what else she’s got going on. It does look a little heavy in full-length, but I can’t say what length would have been better. She’s perfectly gorgeous as it is.

    • Contralto

      Good God almighty, that woman is gorgeous. I adore the dress.

    • lesmaha

      She is perfection.

    • Gaby

      The combination of gold and black in the lace makes her look like some type of phosphorescent moss is growing over her body.

      • Qitkat

        Which is one of the coolest descriptions of a fabric ever!

        • Gaby

          If you like the swamp thing look, sure.

          • Qitkat

            Next Season on Project Runway: Never before on Project Runway, designers will be tasked to draw inspiration from a clumping trip to the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, where they will don knee high rubber boots and be taken by airboat deep in uncharted territory into the refuge, where they will have to pull rotting vegetation from the muck, and return to the Parson’s workroom where they will create their own fabric from the stuff. Makeup inspiration will be chosen from a choice of swamp monster movies, and the producers of Face Off will provide the accessory wall. Any outfit which glows under black light will be guaranteed a spot in the top three. Aaron Eckhart who will portrays the monster in the upcoming film, I, Frankenstein will serve as guest judge, in his character makeup.

      I COULD nitpick here and there but overall she looks great.

    • FishIntoBushes

      Her nose and mouth are too close together. That’s all I can see when I look at her.

    • TrooperSchaf

      Love it, the woman and the dress :) It is a bit long but hey… with a smile like hers, why would someone pay attention to them hem of the dress.

    • Lilyana_F

      Love her! She’s glowing!

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      The gold version looks like an “old lady” dress to me. She looks great in the black lace!

    • kathrineb

      I don’t like this dress!

    • E. D.

      Better sleeveless.

    • Crystal

      My eyes hurt.

    • Winterhart

      Hair is boring. I can’t help but feel it would have been better with the navy lace if she’d kept the body sheer (it looks fabulous on her arms), but I love the original gold version of the dress. If anyone has a spare $2.2k they want to throw my way, I’m accepting 😉

    • Qitkat

      I am freaking in love with the gold and black over navy version. The style might be aging on others, but on Penelope, it’s just so classic and gorgeous.

    • Julie Chase

      I hate this, it’s entirely too matronly. But SHE is gorgeous.

    • Nazzzy


    • LesYeuxHiboux

      She looks incredible. I don’t mind it being covered up, she’s still sexy and young but it doesn’t mean she has to leave it all hanging out all the time. The sex bomb hair is enough of a counterpoint the eleganza of the gold/black/navy dress. It’s more striking and memorable for not being a cocktail dress or a sheer skirt over granny panties.

    • Diego!

      She looks stunning!!! Penelope, motherhood suits you really well! I love her hair and make up. Can we say this is a WERQ? Indeed!

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Wow I love the changes she made to the dress! From Mother of the Bride to Hot Momma!! And I want her hair perfect deployment of the ombre.

    • crash1212

      I guess the reason we don’t have pictures of Penelope and Javier together at this event is because the cameras would’ve exploded from all the gorgeousness. She’s a beauty and this is a beautiful dress.

    • VicD

      The dress …. whatever, like it, don’t like it…. but she is FLAWLESS.

    • Fannie Wolston

      looks itchy as hell, but like a jewel
