In 2009, actress Penelope Cruz wore an all red Bottega Venetta ensemble to the premier of her movie Broken Embraces. Sure, some people thought it was too much red. Others thought that she shouldn’t have worn red on a red carpet. But I fell in love with it.
I’ve tried to recreate this look on at least three occasions with varying levels of failure. But thanks to the Zara October look book, this outfit may finally be mine.
The outfit may not be exactly the same, but it’s damn close. I actually prefer the garnet red to the bright, lipstick red that Penelope chose. But the ankle length pants may pose a bit of a problem. Either way, I’m definitely headed to Zara for some quality dressing room time.
