Penélope Cruz, 49, proved that she’s truly ageless in the little black Chanel mini dress she wore to a Met Gala after-party on Monday, May 1st. The ballet-inspired dress was cinched with a leather corset and featured a plunging neckline. Penélope, who co-hosted the 2023 Met Gala with Dua Lipa, attended Chanel’s after-party at Zero Bond in New York City.

Penélope Cruz Flaunts Her Sculpted Legs In A Black Chanel Mini Dress

Penélope changed out of her light blue Chanel ballgown (which looks like something Cinderella would wear) and into a little black dress for the after-party at Zero Bond. The Chanel mini dress, which stopped mid-thigh and showed off her toned legs, had a black tulle skirt, waist-cinching leather corset, and a low-cut neckline. The plunging cut of the dress reminded us of the killer metallic gown she wore to a 2022 Oscars after-party.

She accessorized her Met Gala after-party look with edgy black leather bracelets, matching black heels, and a pair of chunky silver earrings. The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star styled her cappuccino hair into a slicked-back bun away from her face. And, as for glam, Penélope opted for dramatic eyeliner, light brown eyeshadow, a bit of bronzer, and a rosy lip.

The Spanish actress has long been a muse of the French fashion house Chanel. Her relationship with the brand has always been strong and she's consistently donned their gowns for the red carpet of film premieres and prestigious events the likes of the Venice Film Festival (check out the Barbiecore pink floral dress she wore last year!).

Fan Comments

While the award-winning actress did not post her head-turning after-party look to her Instagram yet, she did share the pale blue Chanel gown she wore to the star-studded event. She captioned her post, "Thank you #annawintour and @chanelofficial for an incredible night. #metgala2023 #karllagerfeld."

Another Instagram account @checkthetag, posted her after-party look and Penélope's fans quickly raved about her stunning mini dress in the comments. One fan wrote, "She's beautiful, so she looks beautiful in everything," while another commented, "Obsessed," and a third chimed in with, "This is incredible!"

Other fans had some styling suggestions for her outfit, "Omg she should've added the Chanel garter bag and this would've been even better, but still she's gorgeous," one commented, while another wrote, "She's gorgeous but I wish she had worn the tights." Either way, we can't believe how ageless Penélope looks!
