Penelope Cruz arrived at the 2012 BAFTA awards looking fabulous in a very simple strapless dress in deep burgundy by Armani Prive.

The high, stand-up neckline is echoed at the back, giving the dress a structured feel, but this is softened by the wraparound waist and frill. It's a typical Armani Prive gown; simple and understated, but memorable and beautiful all the same. The colour looks great on Penelope and it's a lovely change from her usual red carpet choices, which tend to be fuller and more romantic.

What do you think of Penelope's subtle choice? Love the suble glam or wish she'd gone for more drama?
