Salma Hayek In Gucci Première – 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Yay… Gucci Première is back on the red carpet.

We were first introduced to the Gucci Couture collection during Cannes last year, so I’m glad it wasn’t a one-off and we get to see it again at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

If ever there was a face (and body) to present Gucci Première, it’s Salma.

Her strapless champagne silk georgette gown has an embroidered bustier of silver beads, sequins, and crystals which cascade over her pleated skirt.

A Gucci satin clutch, side swept hair and silver Boucheron fine jewels complete this look.

It’s now a 3 horse race for my favourite of the day.

    I need to invent new words for gorgeous and stunning because the ladies at Cannes are making me wear them out. Salma is no exception. Magnifique!

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 20:26 #

      me too….i feel the same way.

      I say it so often during Cannes that the words become meaningless and don’t do the wearer justice

    WOW. Perfection

    Finally a look that I absolutely LOVE on Salma. It has been a while for me as i havent been a fan of strapless halter style dress on Salma. But here the fit is Perfection and so is she!

    Wow – what a fantabulous Day 1. When I saw Uma Thurman I thought I had my BDOTD, but now am not so sure. I love Salma in this. Her hair, make up, dress – cannot find fault with anything. She looks uber-glam.

    so many great looks today

  7. Hisadora May 11, 2011 at 20:39 #

    As I saw in the other post…. The looks in Cannes REALLY let the Met ball to the shame. My God Salma is so incredibly sexy and beautiful, I have no words for her here!

  8. Gigi May 11, 2011 at 20:40 #

    She is gorgeous. The stunning dress (a la Uma), but with a fabulous silver-screen hairdo to complement it.. The best yet.

  9. mari May 11, 2011 at 20:42 #

    so tiny and so beautiful,.

  10. Lucía May 11, 2011 at 20:50 #

    This is such a Salma Hayek dress. Of course, she looks great.

  11. Francesca May 11, 2011 at 20:54 #

    She is so stunning in this dress! And it’s only first day, I’m excited as a kid to see others!

  12. Pablo May 11, 2011 at 20:55 #

    Here comes the brand ambassador yay!! But i just have this thing against side swept hair… i’ll never like it 😉

  13. GusMex May 11, 2011 at 21:02 #

    Viva México!!!! she looks great!

  14. maria May 11, 2011 at 21:06 #

    this dress is also so lovely in motion. It’s beautiful.
    my only little gripe would be that it should be a bit higher on the chest.
    My BOTD is still Fan Bing Bing. It’s just so different.

  15. Arabian Fashionista May 11, 2011 at 21:06 #

    Salma literally took my breath awaaay !! She truly looks like Hollywood royalty. Perfection.

  16. mol May 11, 2011 at 21:10 #

    Glamorous perfection – the fit amazing, she completely nailed this!

  18. Marvel May 11, 2011 at 21:26 #

    A great look and she looks amazing. Im loving her and the Gucci connection more than the McQueen relationship

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 21:27 #

      totally her and Gucci are a much better fit.

  19. Lils May 11, 2011 at 22:02 #

    That dress is great for her. Her twins don’t look as big as usual. Her makeup and hair complement the dress so well. She is perfect/

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 22:13 #

      I agree she may have lost weight or had a reduction.

      High Fashion and big boobies don’t always work so well together 😉

  20. nightowl2046 May 11, 2011 at 22:51 #

    This is an ordinary dress on red carpet, and she really should lose more weight. If Fan Bingbing is Wow! Salma is just well done.

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 22:53 #

      I disagree that she needs to lose more weight. Strongly.

      She is fine the way she is.

  21. Thomas Monks May 11, 2011 at 23:18 #

    i love this look but i feel it is sort of the same dress sans feathers and degrede that Hilary Swank wore to the oscars each woman owned their version of the dress

  22. Jennesia May 12, 2011 at 01:31 #

    Perfection…nothing else but perfection.

    • KateS May 12, 2011 at 02:49 #

      I agree – there’s really nothing more to say about it.

    I love this look… but my husband gave this only 6/10…

    Wish it were slightly higher on the chest but a great start to Day 1 nonetheless.

  27. Alicat May 12, 2011 at 09:09 #

    This gown is perfection for her body type. She looks fabulous. Thank goodness she has moved on from McQueen.

  28. clementine May 13, 2011 at 01:39 #

    Now this is what a Diva should look like. The look is flawless!!!! I love Salma’s red carpet moments. Well done!!! Magnifique!!!!

  29. sharmila May 16, 2011 at 14:16 #

    Great dress!

    Salma is hottie in movies!
    In real life she don’t has height to stop the show!
    her features to excuse to be very hard makes her look so “hooker” like…cheap features!
    no Grace kelly looks
    sexy appeal a la B.Bardot….or Sophi Loren + Ava Gardner.
    She alawys likes to give this impression she a hottie…or plays some sex symbole….but I find the whole package “raw and cheap”
