Fall down seven times, stand up eight. After tripping (and rolling down a mile-long hill before smashing into jagged rocks) with an utterly confusing outfit, we could only anticipate that Penélope’s next red carpet ensemble would be something relatively close to the goddess-like one that she pulled off at the special screening of her latest film, The Counselor. FYI, this is a look that she pulled right before the red outfit mess for the film’s press junket. As of press time, we are still waiting for her redemption.
The 39-year-old actress pulled out all stops with this Temperley London dress, which magically condemned the existence of her bad angles (you will not believe how difficult it was to pick just a few out of all her gorgeous photos). We did question as to whether Penélope’s hairstyle was the best choice for the dress, but quickly discarded all pertaining thoughts because, let’s face it, the woman is a show-stopper. Penélope chose a subtle bronze clutch to complete her look.

They say navy blue is the new black, and, judging from the pictures, whoever claimed that may be onto something. We are absolutely in love with the glamorous combination of gold-and-navy-blue embodied in a full-length lace creation, having us heave heavy sighs of longing. The dress is not available in navy blue online, but we did find this stunning gold version. We just can’t choose which one we like better.
