Penelope Cruz in Versace at Venice ‘Pablo’ premiere: showgirl-chic or boring?

74th Venice Film Festival 'Loving Pablo' - Premiere

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have made another movie together. I don’t hate that they costar together – I think they actually bring out the best in each other as actors. This time, they costar in Loving Pablo, a true-ish story about Pablo Escobar’s relationship with journalist Virginia Vallejo. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival this week and the reviews are not great. Still, at least we got some pretty photos out of it.

At the Venice premiere, Penelope went Full Showgirl in this Versace number. Penelope loves Versace, and she wears Versace clothes well. But is it just me or does this not even look like Versace? Hm. Some nice stuff: the gown is flattering, it’s tailored beautifully and she looks gorgeous. Some not-great stuff: FEATHERS and she needed a different lipstick, something darker so she wouldn’t look so washed out.

At the photocall, Penelope wore Temperley London. I dislike this so much! I don’t mind this move towards nouveau-boho, but the minty green color is just weird.

    Neither dress works for me

    How about hideous and makes her look bloated? I feel like there are other options. 🙂

    • Blair Warner says:

      Yes, the first place I looked with the white dress was at her stomach! (Which isn’t large, by normal standards, but for her figure is not flattering … )

  3. Josie says:

    She looks stunning in both

    • Skylark says:

      She does, as does he! I particularly love the photocall dress, it’s got a lovely Spanish vibe to it.

      They’re one of my long-time favourite couples: gorgeous, intelligent, non show-bizzy, non-bullshitty, very protective of their (and their childrens’) privacy and of course fabulously talented.

    • Carol says:

      I agree. And she looks even more beautiful than ever. Darn her! How old is she?

    • Miss M says:

      I came here to say the exact same thing! I am digging the mint dress very much!
      Beautiful couple!

  4. Penelope says:

    They look so happy together!

    I love her and *almost* love the mint dress on her.

  5. minx says:

    No. Showgirl and ugly peasant dress.

  6. NeoCleo says:

    I don’t like either dress, but the mint-colored one is especially hideous. Having said that, nothing could make Penelope anything less than beautiful. What a face she has.

  7. Lucy says:

    I don’t really like either of them, but she somehow manages to elevate them.

  8. emma33 says:

    I am SO over Pablo Escobar and wish people would stop making movies and series about him; I think there are about 3 on Netflix at the moment. He was a violent psychopath who waged war on Colombia, not some romantic rebel.

  9. Eve V says:

    I actually like the mint green dress and I love it on her! However, her styling sucks. I would change everything from the shoes to her hairstyle.

  10. Electric Tuba says:

    The white dress is very “Gatsby Bride”.
    The second dress is very much like the one I wore to a food truck festival by the river or “roof party chic” haha . Both are misfires
