Penelope Cruz Dazzles in Madrid... Versace's Hot Property...

Penelope Cruz wowed the crowd at Wednesday night's premiere of "Broken Embraces" in Madrid.

ON THE VERGE: Wearing a slinky black gown by L’Wren Scott, Penélope Cruz dazzled the crowd at Wednesday night’s premiere of “Broken Embraces” in Madrid. It was a family affair with sister Mónica and the Cruz clan; the Bardems (but no Javier; he’s filming in Barcelona); the Almódovar regulars, or “chicas” as they’re called here: Rossy de Palma, Bibiana Fernández and prolific veteran actress Angela Molina; producer Agustín Almodóvar (brother Pedro calls him “the brains of the family”), and homegrown ready-to-wear designer David Delfin, who showed last month at New York Fashion Week. Cruz was back on home turf for the first time since winning the Oscar — and she brought it with her. “I got caught in the airport scanner,” she chuckled during a press conference earlier in the week, and added about Oscar night, “I was so nervous I only remember 10 percent of what happened.” Almodóvar said the comic-thriller, which is his 17th film, is certainly not his last: “I see myself down the road exactly like John Huston on ‘The Dead’ — behind the camera in a wheelchair and hooked up to a catheter.”
