Penelope Cruz In Fashion & Film, Plus My First Giveaway

Penelope Cruz for Mango 2

One of my favorite actresses of today is Penelope Cruz. She's not only stunningly beautiful, but also talented and stylish. I am so in love with her sexy Spanish accent. I could listen to her talk for hours and hours. Her film credits include Blow (2001), Bandidas (2005), Volver (2006), Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), etc. She won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. She can be seen in a couple of films this season, Broken Embraces and Nine. Penelope, along with her sister Monica, developed a clothing collection for the Spanish-based fashion chain Mango. Here are some of the photos promoting that line. I hope you like them. So do are you a fan of Penelope? Do you like these clothes? Let me know what you think.

She's a hottie.... much better looking than her brother Pablo Cruise. (ba da boom!) Sorry for the bad joke that only children of the 70's will get, but I couldn't resist. My sincere apologies. :-)

In addition to her acting skills, she's a classic, statuesque beauty.

What's not to like? She's great and getting better.

Stephanie said...

I am so excited to see her in Nine that film looks amazing. :) Also, her clothes are fabulous. I love the purple dress. Also, she is so magnificent looking I love her exotic looking nose. I don't know why but it stands out and gives her personality. Gorgeous post. ;)

Protege said...

I came here simply as I was curious over the pictures of Penelope, who is one of the most beautiful women I know. I listed her once as a beauty icon in a tag. The top picture (in red) is stunning!
Please do not include me in your giveaway, as I am not residing in the US.;) Unfortunately.;) But good luck to everyone, what a nice gesture on your part.;)

Hi darling!!
Before, I didn't be Penelope's fan. But now I like all her performances, in Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona she was great (and Javier Bardem, Scarlett Johanson, etc)I looove Woody Allen.
I like the Mango collection by Penelope and Monica Cruz.
Ah! thank you because I'm spanish too, hahahaha.
Kisses, honey!!

Melanie's Randomness said...

Penelope is actually one of my favorite actresses now. She gives it a 110%. I loved her in Vanilla Sky, Gothica, & Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I liked how she spoke Spanish.

Her clothes are beautiful. I love that black coat & hat. I'd wear them in a second.

Thanks for letting me know about the 2nd entry. Cheers!! Have a good week!! =)

yyam said...

I agree with you on that Spanish accent...so sexy! I love her most in formal wear...she's gorgeous when she's all dolled up. Can't wait to see Nine....:)

I'm certainly up for seeing Broken Embraces. Cruz has done some magical work for Almodovar.

Lolita Haze said...

Thanks for the heads up! :-D I don't know much about Penelope, but these photos of her are great! Thanks again. :)

Wow! What an amazingly beautiful woman. I love the 3rd photo!

Mrs. M. said...

great post as always keith! I love penelope. She's a true actress. that might sound silly, but i think there are so very few women and guys out there that are real contenders in their craft. Penelope definitely falls under the Meryl Streep category. Sure she's a pretty face, but she's so much more which is why she has and will stick around for so long.

Pop Champagne said...

Penelope Cruz is sooo hot! I loved her in Blow. well she's not so hot anymore since she's older now BUT still has that hot stigma attached to her, she's a hot milf now :D

The Seeker said...

Oh yes, I think Penelope is very beautiful... something wild...
And the clothes are very nice, so wearable which is a great thing nowadays.

Since I'm a no US resident I can't enter the giveaway, but it's a pleasure to visit your blog.

Chessa! said...

I adore her!! she is so fabulous. I have seen every single pedro almodovar movie she has been in. But of course my all time favorite film of hers is Vicky Christina Barcelona. She was so wild and wonderful and crazy and fabulous and LATINA!!!

Daniela said...

I've always loved Penelope as an actress. I first saw her in Blow with Johnny Depp and just fell in love with her. She is so beautiful and her accent is lovely. And those clothes! My goodness, I love those clothes. I had heard about their clothing line but never saw the clothes until you posted pix of them.
I'd like to see both Broken Embraces and Nine but it's Nine that I really want to see. Love musicals and I love everyone in that movie. Thanks for this wonderful post, Keith!
