Penélope Cruz discreetly attended the Cannes Film Festival this year. She was mostly in support of boyfriend Javier Bardem who’s new film Biutiful was premiering. She attended the film’s screening by slipping in a secret entrance and not walking the red carpet but was spooted inside with Javier and later photographed exiting. And yesterday she attended the Palme d’Or Award Ceremony which closes the festival.
On the 9th day, May 20th, she also helped raise $333,000 for the earthquake-stricken nation of Haiti by auctioning off her designer dresses which aide the Jenkins-Penn Haitian relief organization. The Spanish actress stepped out in a gorgeous red wrap dress and silver shoes to mark the occasion. One celeb that really came up trump for the auction was Pe’s good friend, Salma Hayek who donated the first ever Gucci Couture dress, which she wore to day one of the Cannes film festival.
Although there is a good bit of paparazzi candids of her from Cannes, I obviously will not be posting these more intrusive ones as Penélope tried very hard at not being photographed so I wish to respect her privacy. I did however add a couple of shots I felt were okay.
Pe has now left France and is back in Madrid.
We’re just a couple of days away now from Sex and the City 2 hitting cinemas! Recently a slew of posters were released, so check those out in the gallery.
Also tonight, MakingOf.com hosts a Live Red Carpet Feed from the Sex and the City 2 premiere right here on Monday May 24th, 2010 at 6:00pm Edt.
I don’t think Pe will be attended since she was spotted in Madrid early this morning, but you can check out the premiere either way :)
Penélope Cruz and her sister Monica tower over Tokyo in new billboards for designer Japanese band Samantha Thavasa.
The 36-year-old Oscar-winner and her sister, 33, look stunning on the 100ft-high billboard above the Samantha Thavasa flagship store near Harajuku.
Another ad above the store shows Cruz with her latest handbag design for the trendy Japanese company.
Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Lopez have all previously helped design bags for the label.
Yesterday on her birthday, Pe was spotted in Paris, France doing what appears to be a photoshoot for Lancôme. Celebrity-Gossip.net has some photos for your viewing. In the snaps she’s photographed with Mario Testino on the balcony of the Hotel Crillon.
Currently, Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts are spokesmodels for the brand, I’m not sure what Penélope’s duties will be as a model or when her ads might start appearing but this is very exciting since her duties with Mango ended and I’m ready to see more regular Cruz ads, in addition to her L’Oréal stuff. Lancôme Paris is a luxury beauty brand. Owned by L’Oréal since 1964, Lancôme is part of the Luxury Products division, which offers skin care, fragrances, and makeup at higher-end price points.
A fantastic treat will be hitting newsstands soon!
Penélope Cruz guest-edited next month’s French Vogue, which has three different covers.
One cover sees modern day screen legends Penélope, Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts. All the ladies are wearing (RED) clothing, designed to eliminate AIDS in Africa.
While on the other covers, she poses as the other half of Bono’s face, and finally, she toplessly embraces Meryl Streep.
I do not have access to this magazine but I’m hoping we will have scans soon. Please consider donating the other various Pe covers if you manage to obtain and scan them – it would be tremendously appreciated! I can’t wait to see the inside contents!

Penélope Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis of Nine are featured in the seventh annual NY Times Great Performances Portfolio for 2010. The issue is a photographic celebration of the year’s best performances, and they have chosen actors who stunned and delighted us this past year. It was the February 21, 2010 issue. She was in it last year as well. Coincidentally photographed exclusively on the set of Nine.
A scan from the 2010 Hollywood Portfolio issue has been added to the gallery.
Last year she was photographed with Woody Allen and this year she’s with her idol Pedro Almodóvar. You can also view the photoshoot in this past update.

Update #2) Penélope Cruz stood next to her Supporting Actress nominees for the official red carpet on ABC before the big show, where she was gracious and even said even though she’s been there multiple times, she didn’t feel like a vet, that it felt like the first time and when she didn’t speak any English. She also said she is “so happy and proud to be in company of these amazing actresses.”
Update #3) The first (tagged) photo of Pe is available on our twitter, here!

Yesterday Pe attended the Press Conference before the Oscars and I have now added pictures. She looked more casual in a black and blue dress, but gorgeous as if we’d expect anything less.
Stay tuned for more Oscar updates. Not only is Cruz nominated but she will be presenting tonight as well.
Big thanks to Jess of our sister site Kate Hudson Heaven for alerting us to the 20/20 video being online. This is all that aired I believe, and Pe’s segment comes in about 05:21.

Penélope Cruz, Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard and Rob Marshall were in Paris, France earlier today for the premiere of their film Nine.
Penélope looks absolutely stunning in a ballet pink creation with lace overlay and jeweled shoulders. The dress was by L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 (seems to be one of her favorite designers of late) and it’s train was custom-made for Cruz. The back of the dress looks gorgeous! I especially love Pe’s straight hair and make-up here. She topped off her look with a silver clutch and heels.
The first photos have begun to arrive and I’ve started adding some to the gallery. Hopefully we’ll have more tomorrow.
