Pretty dress but she looks like she’s dressed for a wedding.

Penelope’s dress is vintage. she said she first saw it years ago and just recently she went back to the same boutique to look for the same dress and it was still there! How poignant was that? Its vintage Balmain. Destined for her to win the Oscar and she did.

i like her dress:) i’m glad she won

anyones knows the designer of the dress?

Congratulations to classically-talented, beautiful, and gracious Penelope Cruz!

Congratulations to Penelope.

congratulations to Penelope, she deserves it! She is always so beautiful, elegant, and classy.

Very well deserved, she rocked this movie with her performance.

vicky, cristina, barcelona was such a great movie and i’m so glad penelope got the award- she deserved it!

Congratulations to her! I LOVE the dress but it does look more like something a bride would wear. She looks wonderful though.

i agree with #8.. my first thoughts were, is she getting married after the show

Congratulations Penelope, you look so elegant

She said she saw the dress 8 years ago and had buyers regret. She searched for it again and they still had the dress.
It’s Balmain and it’s 60 years old, TRUE vintage (40 years or older).

Reese Witherspoon wore a true vintage gown she found in Paris when she won Best Actress for Walk The Line.

She looks beautiful. Very Audrey Hepburn-ish.
Congrats, Pene!

Love love love this dress and the detail, she looked amazing. Lucky her the dress stuck around for eight years!

Well deserved win, she was incredible in that movie, and she looks gorgeous!

i love her so much

The dress was purchased at Rita Watnik’s high end vintage couture store (of course) in Beverly Hills, Lily et Cie. Gorgeous! Very important Couture piece and I am sure quite expensive.

i thought marisa tomei deserved it more, but congrats to penny

I guess if you sleep with enough important people in the industry, you’ll get an Oscar eventually.

She looks stunningly beautiful!!

Penelope is spanish!!!! @ 02/23/2009 at 6:11 am

Penelope gracias por ser como eres, y por habernos hecho a las española orgullosas de ti, y encima por tener ese porte y ese estilo que nos haces sentir todavia mas orgullosas de ti, el mejor vestido de todos como en los oscar 2007

You make me to be proud being spanish, you are so wonderfull.
i am happy for you. you deserved it!

Viva Alcobendas y viva la Pe¡¡

Pon a tu hermana a trabajar.

So happy for her, she deserved Oscar even two years ago for Volver movie! She was perfect, really gorgeous dress oh and her smile:)
her speech while accepting the oscar was so honest but humble, love you Penelope!

penelope congratulations!!!
you’re beautiful!!

i thought it was cool she won but the face she put when Hugh Jackman was performing, like she was bored, kinda rude

Yay! I am so glad she won. She really is such a talented actress and completely stole the show in VCB.

I liked the dress!

and I’m not real fan of her tough I’m spanish,..I never liked her, but her speech touched me, and I think she was great accepting the Oscar,so congrats Pe! and thanks for those beautiful words in spanish! we really appreciate it!

Enhorabuena Penélope, nuestra española más internacional ha conseguido un merecidísimo Oscar. Te lo mereces y desde España te felicito. ¡Viva la Pe!.

te amo!!!
love the dress, it looks really pretty on u and u were glowing =]
congrats on winning as well!!
u always look good =p

Do you know that she supports anti-American,anti-Israel, communist groups here in Spain?. As well as the whole Spanish movie system, as Almodovar, Bardem, etc, they all sympathize with commnunist extreme left party and the terrorist group ETA. She was also in front line of the anti-American demonstrations against USA, calling American citizens genocide people. You can check it on the internet. Not to mention that in Spain, tax payers are forced by law to subsidize these rubbish films they made, and to put up with their insults to us. It’s shocking to see her now praising the USA, the movie business, the capitalist system, and pretending to be pro-American. Well, I just wanted to make clear who this woman is, for the American people to know. Kind regards from Spain.

she didn’t deserve it, with her aweful accent, I don’t understand how she won!

Freeman #38 then I love her more, why would she Support Israeli government when they are killing innocent kids, why would she support idiot George Bush when he killed so many innocent people in Iraq and killed so many American soldiers, Te amo mucho Penelope, you go girl I wish more actors and actresses like you can speak up. Freeman and you are a coward you idiot you should be happy that Penelope won and you are trying to be a rat oh well my love grew more towards her because of your information about her.

felicidades penelope!!! wow she finally won it!! lol
the dress is beautiful, and she looked amazing!! and accepting the oscar she spoke in spanish too what i think is a really good idea!!

i’m so taken aback of what “thats_right” has writen!! penelope cruz isn’t with ETA!! it’s no good to say that because she iswith the left party, she is with a terrorist group!! ETA is not supported here on spain!! not being right party doesn’t mean supporting the terrorist, ha?? this group has caused a lot of pain in spain and you shouldn’t talk about it in an oscar talk!! penelope is a great actress and that’s all, if she is left party it must be for some reasons!! one of them because the right part doesn’t do anything valuable!!

For FREE MAN = tu eres del PP, un partido que limita a la gente, nazi, en contra de la evolucion de los pueblos, anclado en el pasado, que le gusta los toros… eres patetico Nazi de mierda!!!
Penelope THE BEST!

To #39- How ignorant can you be? Don’t you know that America is not the only country in the world? Why should people from other cultures assimilate American accent? Try speaking spanish in mexicn, colombian, venezuelan, argentinian, etc. accent and see how well you do. So you’re saying that actors are only good if they speak with an American accent? Do you know how foolish, ignorant and selfish that sounds? Besides, Penelope was playing a Spaniard who also spoke English- she is supposed to have an accent. In Europe most people know at LEAST two languages. How many languages do you know? I thought so.

Honestly, I can’t decide who’s hotter, Penelope or her sister Monica. Either way, I love watching their brother’s music video where they both make out with each other.. And now that Monica is in a movie coming out in the US, I wonder if they will work together soon?!?!
