Penelope’s outfit featured a thick, ruffled skirt that was raised at the front and decorated with a large red bow.

The backless look was tighter over her midriff to highlight her hourglass figure, and the dress included a shawl that came just below her shoulders to expose sparkling coral-like straps.  

The Oscar winner had her dark locks styled up with close-cropped bangs covering her forehead and dangling strands framing her elegantly made-up face.

She accessorized with gleaming diamond-encrusted earrings and elevated her 5ft6in stature with black open-toe heels.

Joining the guest of honor on the red carpet was her Vicky Christina Barcelona costar Rebecca Hall, who looked chic in a black suit covered in sequins over a patterned bustier-style top with a black quilted clutch and a chunky necklace, both from Chanel.

The actress starred in Woody Allen’s acclaimed 2008 film along with Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem.

Cruz’s performance earned her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and even played a role in her future marriage.

She and Bardem had appeared together in previous projects, but the stars launched a relationship amid their collaboration on the film and later married in 2010.
