As with any multi-day event in the film industry, parties and parties are held after the walk-ups, screenings and other ceremonies. After France and its iconic Cannes Film Festival, it is the turn of the United States, New York in particular, to put the 7th art in the spotlight with the Tribeca Film Festival. The latter began with the presentation of the documentary Half-time, in the presence of the one to whom it is dedicated, Jennifer Lopez. But the evening of this Monday, June 13, it is a completely different Latin bomb that stood out: Penelope Cruz.
The Chanel brand organized a special dinner at the Balthazar, a posh French restaurant in the Big Apple. As a faithful of the brand – she was present at the repetition of the Métiers d’art show in Florence on June 7 – impossible for the wife of Javier Bardem not to pass a head at the event. It was in a long fuschia pink dress with straps, signed Chanel of course, that the 48-year-old actress posed for the photographers. As a handbag, a mini quilted vanity carried by hand. As pink as her dress, the whole thing just made Penelope Cruz chewable.
It was without her darling Javier Bardem that Penelope Cruz went to dinner. But don’t worry about his romantic loneliness on this evening. The parents of 8-year-old Luna and 11-year-old Leonardo are still head over heels for each other. No later than last March, during the 94th edition of the Oscars ceremony, the couple walked the red carpet hand in hand, in their bubble of complicity. Javier Bardem only had eyes for his wife.
No darling on the horizon but Penelope Cruz crossed paths with Lily Allen, also a follower of the brand, all in transparency, Christy Turlington, Andie MacDowell and her sublime graying hair assumed, Kyra Sedgwick (Ally McBeal, The Closer), Judith Light and Rosanna Arquette, Robert de Niro and Andrew Garfield, aka Peter Parker in the saga Spiderman.
