Penélope Cruz jokes Javier Bardem 'lost it' when he saw her 2023 Met Gala look

While speaking to Extra on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday night the Spanish actress recalled how her husband "lost it" when he first saw her in the vintage Chanel ballgown. "He's such a big fan." Reflecting on the event's theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, Penélope also noted that she always knew she wanted to honour the late designer with her outfit. The hooded sheer mint gown featured in Chanel's spring/summer 1988 collection, and was originally worn by French supermodel Inès de La Fressange on the runway.
