Penelope Cruz Black Feathered Dress at the 80th Oscar Ceremony

  • Pin it

Besides the fact that 70% of the dresses was overwhelmingly black at the 80th Annual Academy Award Ceremony, I have to show you something (at least) interesting so you can appreciate with your own eyes.

Feathered dresses! The one that looked completely stunning (and that is not meant in a good way!) I think it was Penelope Cruz! So, My Award for the most nature-blending gown goes to Penelope! What do you think? Are those feathers growing in the wrong direction? Or are those feathers just wrong?

My vote goes to her (now) lover Javier Bardem! Sorry. But the dress is gorgeous. And indeed I just wrote somewhere else that black was the “color” this year. Many pony tail like hairdo’s too.

I’ve just read the dress is designed by Karl Lagerfeld just for her so it is very exclusive. On a second look and thought I do not like the dress that much. I do wonder what the feathers on the back do look like after hours of sitting in a chair……..?

[…] Talking about feathers at this 80th edition of the Annual Academy Award, I thought I should also bring you the “goodâ€?, not only the “badâ€?. […]

It’s not the fashion disaster by excellence but I do believe those feathers are at least controversial ;) It may be a Chanel, it’s still too proudly feathered.

[…] Besides the fact that some of the heavy “style sceneâ€? names are fans of Osman’s creations (Kate Moss, Lily Cole, Thandie Newton), the dresses don’t look that appealing to me (ok, maybe the one ending up in blue? As a ray of hope breaking the black?). By all means, I own a little black dress myself! Never worn it, though… Couldn’t really find the occasion to show my “seriousâ€? self in a lbd. […]

Really, you really think its feathered much? I do think it should’ve stopped at the silver twylies, for a mini dress, but for Penelope it seems so suiting. Its her ‘style’ and you cannot blame her style. I agree that over the next couple awards, she did not do as good as this, but I can definitely see why she picked it! The feathers are in this season! Good job, Penelope on this one! And yes, the hair is — fantastic!
