What's Penelope Cruz's Red Carpet Personality?

02/21/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Nominated for Best Actress for her role in Volver, Penelope Cruz is the Romantic of this year’s award season.

Signature Look: Strapless and sleeveless gowns (the better to show-off her toned arms) with nipped-in waists. Cruz’s dresses are often embellished with romantic details such as ruffles, lace and bodice-enhancing ruching. Her go-to beauty look? Lush hair and dramatic eye makeup, finished off with a nude mouth.

Favorite Designers: Oscar de la Renta, Chanel and Valentino, with shoes by Luciano Padovan. Cruz also favors simple diamond jewelry by Chopard and Cartier.

What She Will Wear: Though her stylists have looked at sketches from serveral designers, insiders say she is likely to wear Dior.

To me Penelope is the epitomy of Old Hollywood.
From gowns to suits she pulls everything off with class and elegance. My personal favorite dress is this amazing Versace dress with a feathered bottom. http://www.whatcelebswear.com/component/option,com_browse/task,product/celebrity_id,265/product_id,3220/
