Penelope Cruz was looking radiant during the 69th San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain.

Though the actress has made several appearances as of late, Cruz looked extra glamorous on Friday in a short crystal-beaded dress featuring a cascade of glass beads, intricate sequin details, plunging neckline and criss-cross straps.

To elevate the look, the “Madre Paralelas” actress opted for silver hoop earrings and a matching clutch. As for footwear, Cruz went for her usual style: high heels encompassing ankle straps, silver uppers and 4.5-inch heels.
