Penelope Cruz’s navy jumpsuit in Madrid: cute or too bolt-on pocket-y?


As we’ve seen throughout the past two weeks, Penelope Cruz’s style choices for the Pirates of Caribbean 4 publicity tour have been… odd. Sometimes she’s looks absolutely gorgeous and perfect. Other times, she looks like bang-trauma’d, ice-skater hell. She’s been playing with these odd clip-on bangs, and they are unfortunate. And then she keeps choosing the wrong dress for the particular event. Take the difference in her Cannes premiere look and her Berlin premiere look. The red Armani should have been the Cannes look, no doubt. She would have been stunning in that, at that venue. But instead she chose the tulle monstrosity from Marchesa.

Anyway, these are new photos of Penelope in Madrid, promoting POTC 4. I guess this is the photo call…? Sure. While I don’t HATE her jumpsuit, it does have issues, right? Usually I like a clever little pocket on an otherwise simple ensemble, but these pockets are rather garish. They seem like they were stuck on as an afterthought. Fug. I do love her hair here. She should just keep it like this.



By the way, have we discussed the other hot dude in POTC 4? I’m not talking about Johnny Depp. I’m talking about this young guy, Sam Clafin? He’s a little English actor, and he’s pretty cute, right? Rather dashing and sexy. I love his giant ears.

    not a fan of jumpsuits. but the color is nice and suits her well.

    Why don’t famous people have their pants tailored/hemmed appropriately? I seriously doubt the “puddling” look is what the designer intended? Why not have them hemmed to the toes of the shoes she undoubtedly was GIVEN to wear with the dress?
    Less money on clip-in bangs, more money on properly hemmed pants!

    I thought it was the premiere of PotC4, not Star Trek’s stand at the Comic-Con.
    She looks ok, though.

    Haha @Solveig, I thought the same thing. Reminds me of Deanna Troy’s stupid jumpsuit. I like her from the neck up here though.

  6. anne says:

    Not the norm for her. Ew

  7. k says:

    unfortunate blocking. Looks like two swords are sticking out of her head.

  8. ladybert62 says:

    I like the jumpsuit even with the pockets but why is it hiding her feet and dragging on the floor?

    I like the jump suit but I the stupid, sloppy length detracts from the sleekness and elegance of the piece.

    Oh yes, you have some pics of Sam ! He’s pretty good in ‘Any Human Heart’ (not talking about his nekkid part, and not that he’s there long enough to see anything …) and kinda good in ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ when I finally recognized him -because I was mostly watching for Matthew Macfadyen- xD

    My cousin is looking so much like a younger Penélope it’s quite disturbing to see all these pics of her, with bangs one day, without the other !

    needs more tailoring in the waist and higher heels and it would work.


  13. kim says:

    I love it!

  14. Sue says:

    Not the best fit on her it does nothing for her body.

  15. blackswan says:

    the neck is horrible, and i don’t see jumpsuits as elegant. doesn’t suit her.

  16. Anna says:

    It has to be bolt-on to hide the girdle.

  17. thegreatdefender says:

    I love the look and with her body she can wear anything and make it look good, very sexy.

  18. Rose says:

    She looks so old here, her face in the second photo looks very tired.

  19. Blue says:

    It looks so ill-fitting. I don’t think anything could help this “outfit” but it definitely should have been hemmed

  20. Kim says:

    I like it. I like the fact that she isnt always shoving her boobs in everyones face like Salma.

  21. Louise says:

    Something is off. Maybe it is the pockets because something is preventing it from looking good.

  22. khaveman says:

    only things I dislike are the waist and trouser length. Otherwise, beautiful.

  23. jellyBelly says:

    I think the designer, if he/she gave a crap about his/her image or their own name, should have sent out someone to hem it to flatter the very worthy model they were lucky to get. As it stands now, she carried it off very well. Even though it was several inches too long, the ball was very clearly dropped. Jeez, how hard can it be? I’m a housewife who only took up sewing 5 years ago, with an $89 sewing machine I got at Kmart, and even *I*could have managed to get her to the red carpet in pants that fit.

  24. Newbie says:

    Again, not feeling it. She can bring it when she wants to. Why is she picking things that look less-than?

  25. Vera says:

    Never been too big of a fan of the stiff jumpsuit. Often, as it does here, it completely covers the shoes. A more billowy fabric is much nicer and is more flattering in most cases. And the detailing does resemble Star Trek, as someone else said already, a bit too much. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Star Trek. But this is just not very good. Though, it isn’t completely horrendous. Just not good either. I think if they didn’t have the belt thing going on, it would have been better, and probably also loose the pockets. Though the stiffness of the pant is also not great, which brings me back to my dislike for jumpsuits made of stiffer fabric.

    Looks like she´s being strangled, and she really looks tired. Not her best appearance IMHO.
