While Penelope Cruz's slicked-back style emphasizes her lovely hairline, it manages to come across both elegant and edgy at the same time. Those sparkly earrings add another regal touch to her look and draw the eye down to her face and away from her jet-black hair.

Her lipstick is on the pale side, but it's definitely colored within the lines (look at her upper lip especially). She took the same approach to her eyes, using dark pencil and soft, smoky shadow to define them. I think she's stunning no matter how she's styled, but do you think this look stands out?
