Salma Hayek In Gucci – “Il Mondo Vi Appartiene” Dinner

Excuse me whilst I pick my chin off my desk.

As always Salma Hayek floor me again tonight (as she always does in Gucci) when she arrived at the ‘Il Mondo Vi Appartiene’ Dinner during the 54th International Art Biennale at Fondazione Cini in Venice, Italy this evening.

My favourite Gucci brand ambassador once again does the brand proud by looking sensational wearing a one-of-a-kind Gucci one shoulder maroon dress.

The fully embroidered fitted dress was paired with a matching crepe shrug.

As much I’m dying to see the full affect of the dress without the shrug, it does add an air of sophistication to the overall look.

Despite this being as close to perfection as perfection can be and the fact this look is perfect for the occasion, I would’ve loved to have seen this look as a gown.

Does anyone else agree?

A sweeping updo, a multi-coloured snake-skin clutch and matching peep-toes completed this look.

    I like the shrug with it, I think it helps keep the “twins” in check as it covers any side-spillage.

    It would be breath-taking as a gown but I still think it’s stunning short.

    Gee, the BDOTW candidates are all appearing on Wednesday this week! She is such a knockout and that dress is perfection. Great color for her, perfectly styled. All that and to be in Venice,too.

    I don’t like the shrug, but the dress and the waist… PERFECT

  4. Incroyable June 2, 2011 at 00:47 #

    I think she looks AMAZING, but I’m not blown away like FC

  5. Tahj June 2, 2011 at 00:59 #

    I agree FC, I would have preferred this as a gown. Salma has such a great, short and curvy figure that she’s not easy to dress. The ones with tall, boyish figures are the easiest to dress. But with her being so short and so curvy, she looks best in gowns anyway, it elongates the body.

    But she is still dazzling and ruby red is a great color on a brunette.

    Like a glove.

  7. Hisadora June 2, 2011 at 02:10 #

    Isn’t she fabulous??? This woman looks good in a tee and jeans. And this dress was MADE for her, definitely!!!

  8. Jen June 2, 2011 at 02:20 #

    Wow. She’s stunning. I like the length on her, the color is great, her hair & makeup complement it so well – just perfect all the way around.

  9. Moxie June 2, 2011 at 02:40 #

    BDOTW contender, for sure. I like the shrug with it.

  10. Dazzle June 2, 2011 at 03:08 #

    Salma is single handedly turning me back into a Gucci fan. She has worn pieces that I totally overlooked before. This fits her like a glove. She is filling out every inch of that dress and working it! I love the fit and color. She looks amazing.

  11. Bridget June 2, 2011 at 03:12 #

    O.M.G. She is stunning!!! Selma looks better than most 20 year old women!!! Perfection.

  12. E June 2, 2011 at 03:35 #

    How glamorous! The dress fits her like a glove. BDOTW?

  13. CreoleLady June 2, 2011 at 03:45 #

    Va va va voom done tastefully. Look at that tiny waist! Having just looked at Miranda Kerr in the grey Alaia, I was thinking about how an Alaia often separates those with a waistline from those without. There was hardly an indentation between Kerr’s bustline and her hips. But Hayek in Gucci – wow. Agree with Catriona, the shrug helps keep the girls from overwhelming the look.

    • Tahj June 2, 2011 at 11:03 #

      Yeah her waist is so tiny! It looks like she’s wearing a corset!

  14. mari June 2, 2011 at 04:08 #

    beautiful! she looks so great and ladylike. love the color. the fabric is wonderful.

  15. mm June 2, 2011 at 04:12 #

    Everything is hittin & fittin! -BDOTW contender

  16. Teleholic June 2, 2011 at 04:21 #

    I’m not usually blown away by Salma.I’m usually way more into gowns than shorter dresses. I like most of her looks, but I rarely ever rave about her. To me, she’s no Cate or Diane. But this look? I honestly believe this is best dressed of the YEAR material.

  17. Dee June 2, 2011 at 04:23 #

    I die.

  18. Camille June 2, 2011 at 06:42 #

    BDOTW candidate. She looks STUNNING.

  19. Francesca June 2, 2011 at 06:55 #

    STUNNING! BDOTW for me.

  20. roxana June 2, 2011 at 07:23 #

    i don’t like the sleeves!

  21. rawda June 2, 2011 at 08:12 #

    I think it’s more event-appropriate for it to be a mini than a gown, FC. But I do wish to see this lovely look without the shrug. And I thought this was a slow week :), come Miranda and Salma and that all changes :).

  22. Yasmine June 2, 2011 at 08:17 #

    she does look stunning!

    but something about this look is very out-dated, it might be the up-do, the earings or maybe the whole thing matches too much

  23. Fiona June 2, 2011 at 08:31 #

    Wow wow wow. Beautiful, I love this colour on her and I like the shrug. It has a Dolce Vita quality, quite Sophia Loren/Gina Lollobrigida – I love her hair, the whole look is elegant, simple and super sexy. BDOTW worth definitely.

  24. Megan June 2, 2011 at 08:36 #

    Stunning!! we certainly do not see enough gucci premiere I love every piece that is created.

  25. karen June 2, 2011 at 08:40 #

    Wow i can’t believe how good Salma looks. Usually she is on my worst dressed list.

  26. KateS June 2, 2011 at 08:54 #

    Perfection! I love the styling, and she is glamorous as always.
    In a different colour, it could still be a beautiful gown on someone else.

  27. Hadarah June 2, 2011 at 09:17 #

    Stunning. The color is so sensual. The shrug is a bit distracting, but I think that without it she would have veered into harlot territory because of her effortless sex appeal.

  28. Andrea M June 2, 2011 at 09:23 #

    Wow! Salma is classy and smoking hot. Perfection as it is…

  29. Emi June 2, 2011 at 09:53 #

    A bit too matchy-matchy, for me, but she looks great.

  30. allie June 2, 2011 at 10:43 #

    Stunning!

  31. Joy June 2, 2011 at 10:46 #

    Wowzers!!! I guess everyone else can stay home for the rest of the week! I’m thinking BDOTW is a lock. I agree with the many comments that this is Perfection.

  32. Kate McCarthy June 2, 2011 at 11:26 #

    Wowzer!her body is almost cartoon like.she really does glow,like the dress but love the look because salma really does sell it!

  33. Alina June 2, 2011 at 13:09 #

    Perfection.

  34. dee June 2, 2011 at 15:22 #

    She is so hot. She looks amazing.

  35. steph June 2, 2011 at 16:20 #

    she looks fantastic. this is what a curvy woman looks like. not someone like beth ditto, she is just fat

  36. smolls June 2, 2011 at 18:14 #

    BDOTW for sure! She looks amazing & I love the color! :)

  37. Jones19 June 2, 2011 at 20:57 #

    I’m in love, it looks like she was poured into this. DROOL.

  38. Sophie June 2, 2011 at 22:19 #

    WOW! She’s stunning!

  39. Raquel June 3, 2011 at 14:30 #

    Great, great, great dress. It has been a loooong time since I’ve seen a dress this lenght that had wowed me. She looks stunning – I don’t like the hair much – and I think all the wanna be celebrities and models world wide should take a note that you can wear a fitted, sexy, stunning dress that is not a bandage dress.

  40. bianca June 12, 2011 at 21:48 #

    wow kat, I was thinking how nicer this would have looked as a gown and there you go and say the exact same thing:)cool
