Penelope Cruz: Layers On A Frayer

penelope cruz

While Penelope Cruz looked as gorgeous as ever at the New Yorm Film Festival screening of Broken Embraces, her latest collaboration with director Pedro Almodovar, we do wish she’d taken her jacket off before stepping onto the red carpet. Not to mention that avant-garde hoodie she’s got on under it. Then again, judging from the frayed hem dragging across the floor, maybe the low-cut dress she’s got on underneath needs all the coverage it can get. Woof.

Take a closer look at Cruz’s fashion victimization in the gallery below.

Talk about truth in advertising. Pamela Anderson reminded everybody what real Hollywood style was at the Hollywood Style Awards in LA last night, baring her panty-clad crotch on the red carpet to the non-delight of her stylist’s daughter, who somehow got the unlucky job of holding Pam’s train. Other modern style icons at the event included Lauren Conrad, Hayden Panetierre, and Kim Kardashian‘s ass. Check out all these ladies’ looks and more in the gallery below. Watch out for Lauren’s “spiked” heels, though! That literalization is gonna hurt somebody.

They seem to think that having one hit song gives them license to design a line of dog leashes or mix up a perfume, and sadly that just ain’t so. Katy Perry is the latest celeb to fall victim to Hollywood’s “I can do it all!” attitude, with her recent stint hosting some Fashion Week interviews for

Don’t get us wrong, we love Katy when she’s prancing around onstage and canoodling sex-freak Russell Brand (Katy, he’s gonna break your heart – watch out girl!) but interviewing Karl Lagerfeld? No thanks. The iconic designer didn’t seem all that charmed by Katy’s clumsy on-camera skills – he gently corrected her when she confused a leather dress for metal and said he preferred listening to his pal Lily AllenKaty’s arch-nemesis – when getting ready for shows. Ouch! Clip above. [via ONTD]

The “Hot ‘N Cold” singer and the MTV VMA host showed up to the runway show looking very proud to be together, happily posing together for photos and going backstage to chat with the designer. Katy and Russell were escorted to the front row, a few seats down from Prince, with whom they happily chatted. Russell rubbed Katy’s back throughout the “Sunset Blvd.”-themed show and the two whispered in each other’s ears. The couple held hands and Russell even kissed his lady love on the cheek when the show came to a close. Looks like this romance is on!!!

I can relate to that, the mental part.” Katy and Russell were first spotted together outside the actor’s London home and then he jetted to Paris to be by Katy’s side at the Fendi party.
