Actress Penelope Cruz, who became the first Spanish actress to win the Academy award, had picked up her vintage gown eight-years-ago.

The actress wowed the crowd with her 60-year-old sparkling vintage Balmain gown at the Oscars yesterday.

“I found this dress eight years ago and I was saving it for something very special,” said the actress.

The gown looked perfect as the actress walked up to the stage to receive her first golden statuette.

The 34-year-old actress won the Best Supporting Actress award yesterday for her performance as maria Elena, the neurotic wife of an artist in Woody Allen’s comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona. “Has anybody ever fainted here? Because I might be the first one,” an overwhelmed Cruz said as she accepted her award.

The actress had earlier expressed her wish to become the first actress to win an Oscar for Spain.
