Penélope Cruz's red-carpet fashion crisis!

31 July 2009

Penelope Cruz

There aren't many people that could pull off a red-carpet worthy outfit from their hand luggage - but then again, there aren't many people as beautiful as Penélope Cruz. After her luggage went missing on a flight into London for the UK premiere of Broken Embraces, Penélope was forced to whip out the red Bottega Veneta trouser suit and Christian Louboutin wedges she'd handily stashed in her hand luggage before taking off from Madrid. (Clearly A-listers don't do trackie bums and cashmere scarves...). After posing professionally for photographers and fans at the premiere, Pen then dashed back to the Berkeley Hotel to sort out her wardrobe crisis. Meanwhile director and close friend of the actress, Pedro Almodovar spilled to Grazia his thoughts on the mystery: ‘I think it was stolen by a fetishist! Someone took it and went home...' Luckily that was not the case. By the time Penélope got back to her hotel, Iberia had delivered the missing bag and the actress made it back to Somerset House to introduce the film to a standing ovation from the crowd. Crisis averted!
