As well as celebrating the unveiling of the Walk of Fame, the couple were presented with their own marble plaques on the walkway, located on Calle Martin de los Heros.

It was another lesson in post-pregnancy style from new mum Penelope, who welcomed son Leo in January.

She draped her enviable figure in a burnt orange one-shouldered dress by Roksanda Ilincic, while her dapper husband chose a smart blue shirt and jeans.

In total 25 Spanish stars were honoured at the inauguration – 16 actors and nine directors.

Among that number, Penelope and Javier's good friend Pedro Almodovar, who happily posed alongside the cinematic golden couple.

Actor Antonio Banderas was also honoured at the event, although he was unable to attend in person. He did however send a message to the Spanish film academy saying he felt "very grateful and honoured" to receive his star.

It wasn't Penelope's first brush with pavement prestige.

In April she received the 2,436 th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – the inspiration for the Madrid tribute – making her the first Spanish woman to receive the honour.
