Penelope Cruz’s 90s style is the perfect inspiration for a steamy summer

Penelope Cruz's 90s style

If you didn't have a crush on Penelope Cruz in every film she has starred in since Jamón, jamón, you're likely lying or did not watch any Penelope Cruz films. Since her debut in the early 90s, she has been a fixture of the red carpet, a tousled Spanish goddess with a never ending carpet of brunette hair and kohl-rimmed eyes. For Cruz, it was all about strappy slip dresses and plunge necks, bare freckled skin and the odd blazer. The blueprint for classic 90s style across the globe. The glamour was in her lack-thereof, seldom was she pictured wearing an abundance of diamonds or intricate dresses, which is part of why, perhaps, she is so sexy. Girl next door embodied, here, we round up the best of Penelope Cruz's 90s style.
