Oscar-winning actress Penélope Cruz is in the midst of promoting her latest film, Ma Ma, and as a result, she's stepping up her style game. Monday morning in New York the 42-year-old Spanish star made an appearance on Good Morning America and delivered springtime elegance in a dress that’s perfect for a garden party.

The black-and-white Oscar de la Renta frock fit Cruz like a glove and featured lace detailing throughout that highlighted her feminine aesthetic. She nailed the look with mesh-covered, inches-high pumps, a minimal selection of rings, and girly pearl earrings. Her combed-over ‘do flawlessly stayed put as she smiled to fans who cheered the minute she exited the network’s Times Square studios. Cruz also looked flawless thanks to a natural beauty look that consisted of a pared down coral lip.

We think the much-celebrated late designer would be nothing but proud.
