Several of her celebrity friends shared glimpses from her birthday bash on social media, which took place on a rooftop in New York City, with the stunning skyline spanning out behind them.

Penélope looked dressed for a cool New York City night in April, wearing a black cut-out top, a lacy top underneath, jeans, and a Chanel crossbody bag, styling her hair into a bob and opting for a brown coat for the chillier moments.

Other attendees at the party who shared glimpses on social media include Ricky Martin, Irina Shayk, and her closest Hollywood friend Salma Hayek, with other members of her family spotted as well. Her sister Monica Cruz shared a video of the NYC skyline on her Instagram Stories, and included a look at their venue, a lush private rooftop with a pool and seating areas, covered in fairy lights.
