Before I begin, I’d like to go on record saying that I adore both Penelope Cruz and this Givenchy line. This line, I thought, was pretty much as close to perfection as you can get in an haute couture line. Everything was perfectly done, there was wonderful and ornate detailing in every single piece, and it added a dramatic and unique element, which is crucial to anything haute couture. That being said, this was not the dress for Penelope Cruz.
I don’t want to take away from her beauty, because she really is beautiful. I just don’t think that the dress and Penelope did justice to each others unique beauty. The main issue with this dress is that it does not fit her well. Because it is haute couture, the dress was made specifically for the model who was wearing it which, in this case, was not Penelope Cruz. I am not trying to take away anything from Penelope. I mean, she had a baby 4 months ago, and she looks amazing. This dress, perhaps, was just not the right one for her shape. It makes her look slightly lumpy and a little shapeless. For me this is a NO.
