If you haven’t been to see Zoolander 2 yet, make sure you do. Released just last week in the UK, Zoolander 2 has been a huge hit already and has been outperforming other movies in the International Movie Charts.
If you thought the first movie was hilarious, this one is said to deliver the same amount of laughter. Whilst not all film critics have been positive about the movie’s plot and direction, others still feel the same admiration and enjoyment from when they watched Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson strut their stuff in the first runway debut; such as Kate Lloyd’s review for Timeout London where she wrote:
Zoolander fans can breathe a flamboyant sigh of relief: 15 years on, this sequel to the fashion-world satire is as funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped.
But whether this movie gets a thumbs up or thumbs down from you, there really is no denying that the sultry addition of Penelope Cruz was a great move.
As she turns up on a motorbike to greet Derek Zoolander and Wilson’s character Hansel, she channels a Britney-esque ‘Oops I Did it Again’ inspired red leather ensemble. And her character Valentina’s arrival certainly turn up the heat in this capricious sequel.
If you love Penelope Cruz’ look in Zoolander 2 as much as we do, here’s how you can steal her sunglasses style with Select Specs…
Valentina’s Red Sunglasses
First we have Valentina’s red sunglasses, as worn with the famous red leather jumpsuit. Penelope Cruz rocks this look with her exotic charm and gorgeous brunette locks.
Teamed with a smokey eye and simple nude lip together with a pair of sexy leather gloves, Penelope Cruz’s character channels a sports luxe vibe that we just can’t get enough of.
If you love this look, check out two of our top sporty sunglasses here at Select Specs, the Smith Optics LOWDOWN SLIM sunglasses (left) and the Vogue VO2913S sunglasse (right).
Both styles feature a full rim plastic frame in a beautiful, bold red. The Smith Optics LOWDOWN SLIM shades feature a bright and eye-catching translucent design, as well as a thick nose bridge and heavy tapered temples; this design is definitely not for the faint-hearted but ideal if you want to stand out from the crowd like Penelope Cruz does in the Zoolander 2 movie.
The Vogue VO2913S frame is a subtle rendition of the Penelope Cruz look and features a slim, lightweight frame made with a subtle matte red frame material; a sophisticated choice that is seriously versatile for all year round wear.
