We’re totes digging the Duchess of Alba‘s late-in-life pizazz. The 85-year-old royal married Alfonso Diez, a commoner 25 years her junior but two months ago, much to the objection of her family. To shut up her kids, the Duchess split up her $4.9 billion fortune before the nuptials, and now it’s time to par-tay.
The Duchess (full name Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva, per HuffPo), attended a photocall for Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol at Callao Cinema in Madrid last night (December 12th), posing with Tom Cruise while the Duke of Alba looked more like her caretaker than her hubby.
Wearing patterned tights and an ankle bracelet, the Duchess bundled up for her close-up while mentally thumbing through images of Cruise in Cocktail. We were preoccupied with Cruise’s fugly sweater-jacket combo.
Though she didn’t upstage the Duchess, Paula Patton looked divine on the red carpet. The star wore 14k diamond and purple amethyst earrings by Amrapali ($4400).
