Meanwhile, the designer has expanded his personal real estate portfolio, recently buying a modern glass villa in Majorca, Spain. He vacationed there for a week following his blockbuster show in Paris. "I wish I'd stayed there," the designer said Friday upon his return to damp England.
PEDRO AND PE: Penélope Cruz delivered some Hollywood glam to her home turf Thursday at the premiere of Pedro Almodóvar's latest film, "Volver," held in the Palacio de la Musica in Madrid. Wearing a flirty white eyelet gown by Dolce & Gabbana with hair swept back in a tidy bun, Pe (as she's known to friends) arrived with a tie-less Matthew McConaughey and Almodóvar, sporting a plaid bomber jacket and dark jeans.
They were joined on the red carpet by a slew of fashion buddies and ex — and current — Almodóvar chicas including "Volver" co-star Carmen Maura in orange sequins; Geraldine Chaplin wearing a chubby-esque jacket and boho skirt; Rossy DePalma in vintage black and white; Rosario Flores (who played the lady bullfighter in "Talk to Her"); Cruz's sister and TV star Monica Cruz, in a sexy black dress that looked like a nightie; top Spanish model Bimba Bosé in a fluid mocha gown and cardigan sweater by Madrid-based designer David Delfin; megaretailer Elena Benarroch with her husband, sculptor Adolfo Barnatán, and Amalia Zunzunegui, owner of the Giorgio Armani franchise in Spain.
