Spanish actress Penelope Cruz decided she wanted to become an actress after watching Pedro Almodóvar’s cult rom-com Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! 1990. Two years later, she made her cinematic debut with her own cult flick, Jamón Jamón. Since, Penelope has gone on to forge a decades-long (and critically acclaimed) creative partnership with Almodóvar, himself, spanning 1999’s All About My Mother to Volver — which earned the actress an Oscar — and beyond. She’s starred in high-calibur Hollywood action flicks (Vanilla Sky) and Disney franchises (Pirates of the Caribbean) alike. Beyond cinema, she’s faced Chanel campaigns and even played eternal fashion icon Donatella Versace. In terms of her own personal style, Penelope’s singular look flourished around the turn-of-the-millennium. Rather than indulge the era’s most-worn trends (think Y2K’s hot pink micro minis, and diamante ⁠— although there is an incredible Chloé-by-Stella moment), Penelope championed a post-90s minimalism that took in slinky slip dresses, cashmere twinsets and pantsuits. Here, we take a look back at some of Penelope’s most iconic outfits of the 00s era.
