She is famed for her flawless style and striking good looks. And Jennifer Connelly was flaunting all her best wares on Monday as she attended the Louis Vuitton Womenswear Fall/Winter 2022/2023 show as part of Paris Fashion Week. The actress, 51, showed off her sensational sense of style in a black cape-sleeve blazer featuring metal buttons and a silk lapel.
The Labyrinth star teamed her stunning ensemble with an embellished top that continued beyond her blazer and hugged her denim jeans. The Hollywood heavyweight completed her look with scarlet sandal heels and a black and white handbag. She styled her dark tresses in a sleek middle part and allowed them to cascade down her shoulders while opting for a full palette of makeup.
It comes after she revealed what it was like to join forces with one of the world’s highest paid actors, Tom Cruise, who portrays pilot Maverick in the drama films. Telling all to Amazing Magazine, the 50-year-old actress praised Tom, 59, for his ‘exuberance and his generosity.’ She also said of the box office sensation: ‘The depth and breadth of his involvement, and commitment to what he’s doing, I find extraordinary. Really remarkable. It manifests in everything that I saw him do.
‘He struck me as someone who doesn’t take anything for granted and who seizes every opportunity. I think that’s extraordinary.’ Jennifer, who described her character Penny Benjamin as ‘optimistic’, also divulged during the interview that she overcame her fear of flying prior to filming, even though she wasn’t initially slated for scenes where they took to the skies.
However, during a scene where she and Tom were supposed to taxi along a runway in a North American P-51 Mustang, Penny and Maverick travelled by air. The Once Upon A Time In America star said that she had conveniently ‘worked her way out of that chapter’ (her flying phobia) – and she knew she had to ‘get to the bottom of it’ due to constant travel required for work. She interestingly added that none of it was linked back to airplanes or air travel – which allowed her to ‘come out the other side.’
