Style Wars: Cruz Vs. Cotillard

|

Spanish bombshell Penelope Cruz became Spain’s first female Oscar winner for her performance in Vicky Christina Barcelona and French hottie Marion Cotillard became the first actress to win one for a French language film (2007′s La Vie en Rose). The actresses will star alongside Daniel Day-Lewis — not to mention Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren and Kate Hudson — in the musical Nine, to be released Nov. 25.

Both Cruz and Cotillard have attended premieres and parties at Cannes wearing elegant dresses and gowns. Despite a bout with food poisoning, Cruz wore a lilac gown while walking the red carpet for Broken Embraces, her latest Pedro Almodovar film. She’s also been spotted in a strapless, skin-colored dress and a cleavage-baring white ensemble. Cotillard has played it more conservatively — going for ultra minimal, elegant black and blue dresses.
