Penelope Cruz really knows how to work a ballgown. For the Oscars she chose a violet off the shoulder gown made of silk organza. The gown, by Armani Prive, featured a fitted bodice and a flowing, full skirt. Penelope wore diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, a diamond bracelet and a diamond ring, all by Chopard. She wore her hair in a short, retro style with loose waves. Penelope
told Tim Gunn that she and her sister are launching a clothing line. She says she knows what she likes and what she doesn't, and is excited about the new fashion project.
