Penelope Cruz at the Cannes Film Festival in Lavender Marchesa Gown

2009 Cannes Film Festival: Penelope Cruz

You know I've been waiting for someone to wear my favorite lavender Marchesa dress from the designer's Fall collection. And that someone was Fab favorite Penelope Cruz. Alas, it's ill-fitting. Speaking of ill, Penelope otherwise looks radiant at the Broken Embraces premiere after a bout of food poisoning. From the sweet lavender color, to the jeweled bodice and back, and the drapes and ruching, this dress has it all. I just wish a proper fitting took place. Can you see past the fit and into the fabulous?

That color is my favorite, and I love the dress, but I agree that something is off with the way it fits her body.

This dress is gorgeous but I can't get past the fit. I prefer her in Chanel and L'Wren Scott. She is so sexy that this dress doesn't do her justice.

She does not have the right body for that dress. I'm sorry, but she needs to start working out. I think it would have looked gorgeous on someone like Diane Kruger. It too was my favorite gown of the Fall collections.

i agree, it is not fitted well, especially for someone with such a smokin bod

I don't think it fits bad at all. You probably picked the worst picture there was and people voted 'hate it' because of that!
