Penelope Cruz: Perfection at ‘Pirates’ Premiere


Penelope Cruz dripped in diamonds at the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides premiere in Los Angeles – easily the most anticipated film of the summer.

The 37-year-old Spanish actress sparkled in Chopard jewelry and a midnight off-the-shoulder custom gown from Marchesa with embroidered feather and jet crystal detail.

Her platinum and diamond earrings are in the trendy teardrop shape – like Kate’s royal wedding sparklers – and a whopping 57-carat platinum and diamond bracelet finished off the ice for this winning look.

But Penelope wasn’t the only brunette bauble belle of the ball. Eva Longoria rocked teardrop danglers and a white shift dress – a great combo for spring/summer.

Emma Roberts wore a beaded Saloni dome necklace and Dana Rebecca Designs earrings to liven up her ‘little black dress’.

Vanessa Hudgens decorated her ring fingers with a turquoise Herndon Heald ring and a skull silhouette.

And Teri Hatcher sported a great gemstone bangle look and her favorite accessory, daughter Emerson!

But perhaps the most photographed celebs of the night were superstar, Johnny Depp and ‘Orignal Gansta’ pirate, Keith Richards – Depp’s good friend and well-known inspiration for his iconic Jack Sparrow role.

Both wore their signature rocker beads – and a laugh that sounded something like the one you take ‘all the way to the bank’….

The Jewelry Insider

August 6, 2008

Diamonds, sapphires, gold, gowns, Scarlett, Penelope…is there such a thing as too much beauty? The red carpet literally beamed this week at the LA premiere of Woody Allen’s latest film, Vicky Christina Barcelona, as the two gorgeous A-listers gave photogs the answer to their collective dreams. You gotta hand it to Woody – he sure knows how to pick ‘em. The film, shot in (you guessed it) Barcelona, is one of a few Woody Allen flicks to be filmed outside of his native New York, and Oscar is already buzzing.

The ladies dazzled in a picture of contrasts. Scarlett in a long, red Monique Lhuillier gown and a Sonia Boyahian statement necklace that sparkled in a series of gold chains and lockets. (Ms. Boyahian is a friend of the star’s, who also designed her engagement ring to hunky actor, Ryan Reynolds. We’ll be keeping our eye on her). Penelope’s long, dark locks were perfectly complemented by a classic, black Herve Leroux gown and Chopard diamond and sapphire gems.

As if there wasn’t enough eye candy, Ms. Cruz’s current love interest, Oscar-winner and dreamboat, Javier Bardem is ALSO in the cast. Oi! It’s just too much. The press was prohibited from asking them about their relationship on the junket, but the Jewelry Insider hears that wedding bells are in their future. Maybe they can do a double ceremony with Scarlett and Ryan? We mere mortals can only take so much.
