Star number 2,436 is being laid this week on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame embedded with the name of the Spanish actress, Penelope Cruz. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which manages the famous pavement, announced that the award comes in honor of her status as an international star and as the first Spanish actress to be nominated for and win an Oscar. She received the Oscar as Best Supporting Actress for her role in the Woody Allen film, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”, in 2009.

Penelope´s star is being unveiled on April 1 on  Hollywood Boulevard, ahead of the release of Penelope Cruz’s latest film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” due to be released in May.

Penelope Cruz´s beginnings in the arts began at Spain's National Conservatory where she studied classical ballet for nine years. By the time she was 15, her true calling beckoned when she surpassed all the other girls at an audition. With a talent agency contract in hand she landed her several roles in Spanish TV shows and music videos. This stepping stone paved the way for her successful career on the big screen on both sides of the Atlantic.

Besides her career, Penelope balances her life with her husband, (also an academy award winner) actor Javier Bardem, and their new born son Leo Encinas Bardem, as well as maintaining effortless style.

Balenciaga designer handbags were catapulted to fame as jet set chic mixing with BoHo style.  Balenciaga´s handbags just happen to be a favorite of Penelope Cruz too. That alone should only heighten the desire for every woman to own a slouchy bag such as an authentic Balenciaga Black Cherry Twiggy Handbag.

The mingling of sumptuous distressed chevre leather is visually enhanced by its raised hardware accented in brass tone hardware. The trendy leather tassels hanging from the exterior front pocket and top opening zippers determines an authentic Balenciaga handbag by its individual iconic statement. The used hobo contains ornamental buckles at the lower corners of the bag. The front zip pocket naturally carries the famous Balenciaga bonus of a detachable mirror trimmed in black cherry leather.

The pre-owned Twiggy presents double leather handles and a detachable shoulder strap, thus creating a change to its appearance by you carry it in hand or with the strap across.
The interior is lined in dark fabric and includes an interior zippered pocket.

The more than ample space of an authentic Balenciaga Black Cherry Twiggy Handbag boasts that comfortable go-anywhere appeal, including heading to the new “Pirates” film starring Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp.
