Oscars 2009 WIN!: Penelope Cruz

I don't know how she/her stylist got hold of this but Penelope Cruz looked beautiful in this vintage 1950s Balmain dress. Although it could have been seen as a bit fussy what with the large lace detailing on the skirt, it was subtle enough to be elegant and classic.

I did read some snipey comments that it was a bit wedding dressy but surely that's down to the colour (a very popular one for the evening) than anything else. And quite frankly other than getting married, where else can you wear such a dress other than at the Oscars?!
