Spain's biggest movie star (and perhaps one of the greatest film actresses of our time), Penelope Cruz, has never disappointed on the red carpet. Stylish throughout the years, she brings the same elegance to her wardrobe that she does to her film roles.
Cruz arrived at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival premiere of To Rome With Love, surrounded by the film's other stars, ranging from indie favorite Greta Gerwig and up-and-comer Jesse Eisenberg to the film's director, Woody Allen. Allen had previously directed Cruz to an Academy Award in 2008's Vicky Christina Barcelona, which bodes well for his new ensemble piece, set in Italy.
Although Cruz wore a shimmering beige dress to the red carpet premiere, the highlight of her ensemble was here hoop earrings, which shone all night thanks to the light-catching gemstones delicately placed along the rims. It's precisely these eclectic and tasteful touches that make Cruz the fashion icon she is. Those looking for a touch of similar style should consider vintage and estate jewelry, which has a one-of-a-kind elegance all its own.
