Which Look Do You Like For Penelope: Oscars Gown or Party Dress?

02/27/2007 at 11:04 AM ET

Penelope Cruz was one of the undisputed standouts of the Oscar red carpet in her elaborte Atelier Versace gown. But the Spanish beauty changed out of the shredded chiffon floor-sweeper into a pearl and crystal encrusted Chanel Couture dress for the Vanity Fair party after the show that we’re just not as sure about. Penelope rarely mis-steps, but the Chanel dress doesn’t seem as flattering to us. Tell us: Which look do you like better for Penelope? Her Oscar gown or her after-party dress?

DEF the gown – more flattering to her figure. but, PUT YOUR HAIR DOWN – her ears look odd.

I definitely liked her Versace gown better. It fit her like a glove. The Chanel gown is beautiful, but it looked ill fitting on her. Either way, she looked gorgeous that night.

What’s wrong with her ears? They look fine!

I’m not a huge fan of the dress, but I think it flatters her figure more so than the party dress for sure.

They are both awful. Get a new stylist!

I think these photos are unflattering- have seen others of her in these dresses and she is stunning… but there is a little bit of me would love to see such gorgeous couture dresses on someone a little more statuesque like Nicole Kidman or Charlize Theron

the first one is so much better than the second dress it didn´t make her look very well, specially her figure,with the first dress she should have wore a diffrent hair style and the earings were terrible my grannie has a similar one

Elda on

She is so amazing and beautiful, i love both dresses!

Tiffany on

NEITHER! hmmm…looking like a giant pink jellyfish in the first dress or looking like a frump in the second…she needs some serious fashion help!!!

Personally I hate both those dresses! The one on the left reminds me of an ostrich and the next is just ugly and unflattering on her body. I am not a fan of Penelope at all so I don’t think I would like anything she wears.
