Penélope Cruz Puts a Playful Spin on the Naked Trend in a Sheer Lace Jumpsuit

Aside from starring in award-winning movies, Penélope Cruz is renowned for delivering unforgettable looks on the red carpet. In the ’90s she frequently made appearances in sleek, bias-cut slip dresses. However, in recent years, Cruz has developed a “more is more” approach to styling, with a preference for voluminous silhouettes adorned with lavish embellishments. Her most recent appearance reaffirms her penchant for extravagance, yet this time she’s chosen to wear an intricate bodysuit over a princess-worthy gown.

Last night, at the Lancôme x Louvre event in Paris—attended by the likes of Kelly Rowland, Amanda Seyfried, and Isabella Rossellini—the actor put a Parisian spin on the classic Italian La Dolce Vita aesthetic.

Cruz wore a off-the-shoulder black sheer lace bodysuit from Giambattista Valli’s autumn-winter 2023 couture collection, which has all the intricacies you’d expect from a Valli creation. The delicate lace is adorned with a sprinkling of sequin embellishments, there is a black bow across the chest and a billowing satin train which cascades from the hips. Cruz topped it all off with a pair of towering black velvet Christian Louboutin platforms, a black satin clutch bag with a striking silver buckle detail, and diamond drop earrings.

While naked dressing had its moment in 2022, Penélope Cruz shows with her theatrical, couture take on this risqué red carpet look that there is still room to experiment with the trend further.
