Rent Ball Gowns-Get Penelope’s Look
In a floor-length, ostrich feather and sequin-adorned black Marchesa ball dress, Spanish screen siren-goddess Penelope Cruz proved herself to be the belle of the red carpet at the World Premiere of the fourth Pirates of the Carribean movie on Saturday. The 37 year old’s ball dress was set off by a healthy olive glow, and absolutely no sign of any remaining baby weight, following the birth of her and Javier Bardem’s son in January.
Black Beauty- The Ball Dress that Stole the Show
The actress’ ball gown, embroidered with feather and jet crystals, was complimented by Chopard jewelry, while her hair was swept back into a simple up-do- perfectly balancing out her lavish ball dress. In her ball gown, Penelope looked like decadence personified, while her co-star, the sexily eccentric Johnny Depp, opted for a Keith Richards inspired tux/jacket, posing alongside his Rolling Stone idol on the red carpet. Depp admitted that while still filming, seeing Penelope pregnant and her and Bardem with their newborn son made him feel rather broody.
