A Spanish icon of international cinema. Since the opening of the 79th edition of the Mostra in Venice on September 4, Penélope Cruz has caused a sensation with each of her appearances in front of photographers. This year, the actress came to present L’immensità, a film in competition by director Emmanuèle Crialese, in which she plays the leading role.

As at every ceremony, star Penélope Cruz shines elegantly on the red carpet. Worthy ambassador of Chanel, the sublime Spanish knows how to highlight her silhouette by revealing audacious and stunning outfits. Like her arrival on September 5, where she wore a tight pink and black dress, enhanced with beautiful jewelry for the screening of L’immensità.

A leading face of the seventh art, the muse of Pédro Almodovar was also honored at the Mostra last year. Winning the interpretation prize for her role in Madres Paralelas, Penélope Cruz showed her gratitude for this distinction. “It means so much! Barbara at El Deseo, Pedro’s production company I’m talking about from, called me on the phone to tell me the news. I love the people who work here so much, it’s like the family”, she confided to our colleagues from TF1 Info.

Distinguished many times, Penélope Cruz is also a reference in terms of fashion. Like her appearances on the red carpet where she metamorphoses over time. Among her memorable looks in Venice, we particularly remember her black and white haute couture dress, with a close-fitting bustier, signed Chanel from the Fall-Winter 2021-2022 collection.

“I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on the catwalk,” assured Javier Bardem’s wife in the pages of Vogue Italy. “It was my favorite dress. A special dress”, according to his comments relayed by Version Femina. For the occasion, back in pictures on the incredible evolution of the actress through our slideshow.
