We did love the vintage Versace dress Penelope Cruz wore at the Venuto Al Mondo film premiere, we just didn’t like the way she wore it. First off, the shoes are the wrong height for the length of the dress. Penelope should have foregone the platform, and stuck with a modest heel so the dress gracefully and elegantly skimmed the ground, instead of looking like her vintage dress was a few inches too short. Secondly, her hair should have been tied up in a sophisticated and simple updo to match the sculptural pleats in the vintage Versace dress.
The vintage Versace dress itself is fabulous. We love the wide band across the top, the diagonal pleats down the entire length of the dress, and the sexy wrap style that opens towards them hem. But we don’t think Penelope wears it well. What do you think?
