Cruz’s impeccable style radiated through the ethereal gown, a semi-sheer masterpiece boasting long sleeves and a high, frilly neckline.

Inspired by the camellia flower, a prominent theme in the French luxury fashion house‘s Fall 2023 collection, her outfit featured exquisite diamond patterns.

As a longstanding ambassador for Chanel, she effortlessly buttoned up the dress from neck to skirt, elegantly layering it over a white slip.

Beneath the hem of her floor-length gown, Cruz sported black sandals, elevating her already stunning frame. She added a pop of color with a bright red pedicure, showcasing it elegantly through her peep-toe heels.

Allowing the artful gown to command attention on the red carpet, Cruz enhanced her look with a touch of sophistication, gracefully holding a chic Chanel satin and gold-tone metal clutch.

She adorned herself with statement silver Diamant Evanescent earrings, a matching ring, and a necklace – each piece a testament to Chanel’s signature style.

Cruz’s Outstanding Lead Performance in Ferrari

During the awards ceremony, Penélope Cruz was nominated for Outstanding Lead Performance after earning rave reviews for her role in the upcoming Michael Mann biopic Ferrari, set for release on December 25 in theaters.

She portrays Laura Ferrari, wife and business partner of Driver’s Enzo Ferrari, founder of the legendary sports car manufacturer.

The Ferraris were married from 1923 until Laura died in 1978, and The Los Angeles Times called Cruz’s performance “the beating heart” of the film.

Regarding her character, Cruz told the outlet, “The more I found out about her, the more compassion I had for her. She was betrayed. She survived the biggest pain a human being can experience—the loss of a child. And she kept the business together, something that she considered also her home. I think the movie was a beautiful homage to a survivor.”
