Penelope Cruz's Ivory Oscars Gowns

Which Penelope Cruz Oscar Look Is More Fab?

The Oscars is a huge affair in Hollywood. That's why it's appropriate that most actresses had not one but two dresses to celebrate in. At the actual show, Penelope Cruz donned a vintage Balmain that was like a fairy tale. But at the Vanity Fair afterparty, out came her sizzling side in a white one-shoulder dress with a major slit. Both are gorgeous, but which is more Fab?

I can't see the second one very well but wow that high slit is distracting. I love the Balmain-- it would make a beautiful wedding dress!

The Balmain wins. Easily.

I don't love either. I think her Balmain was a little too princessy for me, and I think white is a bad color for the dress. I like the second one, and I do think it's more her style, but the slit is a little too much for my taste - it almost looks like the dress is coming apart. I don't really care, though, because she always looks amazing and I'm just glad she won...

The second is nearly inappropriate. If most other stars had worn this, we'd prob. be calling her skanky. Penelope's elegance lets her get away with things, but I don't think that slit was one of her better choices.

i sorta don't like either, but I'd say the Balmain def is more Oscar and classy... and her shoes for the other dress make the dress look super cheap paired with that to the sky split.

Balmain - beautiful and more Oscar worthy. The other is too casual and sexy.

I'm sorry, I just think the second one is a little too slutty. I'm surprised you can't see her underwear.

I wish I could see more of the second one, right now all I can see is a lot of leg. That said, I still voted for it because I really didn't like Penelope's dress.
