Salma Hayek In Gucci – Gucci and Vanity Fair Dinner Party

Gucci and Vanity Fair hosted a dinner party at the Hotel du Cap, followed by a party to celebrate the world restoration premiere of Sergio Leone’s ‘Once Upon a Time in America’ during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.

Salma Hayek was of course in attendance.

She wore a one of a kind midnight blue strapless cocktail Gucci dress which was fully embellished with paillettes and enriched with three dimensional floral embroidered details at the neckline and around the waist.

The dress was beautiful, this you can’t deny, but on this occasion the twins looked like they were lacking in support.

For me this dress would’ve looked better with shoulder straps.

I am sure there was no danger of a wardrobe malfunction — the dress must have a built-in corset — but she’s too busty for this dress for me.

For the second time in a row, Salma’s eye makeup appeared to be too heavily applied. Her new makeup artist isn’t doing her any favours this Cannes Film Festival.

Blue peep-toes, a matching clutch and a statement necklace with blue stones completed her look.

    why this makeup!!

    Her eye makeup is terrible, her makeup artist must have it in for her or something. The dress is gorgeous but I agree with you FC that shoulder straps would have worked much better

    this dress is so gorgeous and looks great on salma, but the heavy eye makeup lets her down again! don’t let it happen thrice salma!

    I can’t get past the makeup.

    this look screams ‘WAG’ 😛

    Her bust def. lacks support on this occasion, shoulder straps are needed here, agreed.

    Even if I would’ve loved this dress, she made me hate it because of her terrible fit and styling.

    This looks cheap. Especially the make-up. Horror!

    Totally agree w/ everything you said FC

    Let’s be honest, she’s a beautiful woman who doesn’t know how to dress. I understand that it’s hard to manage big breasts (that’s why most of the models have small breasts), but with this dress her twins look huge. Plus, is her daughter doing her make up during these days? I kinda like the eyes but she should have chosen a nude lipstick. It’s too much.

    Minority report–I think she looks spectacular.

  13. Ramsay May 20, 2012 at 17:43 #

    She’s a very beautiful lady but she needs someone to advise her on how to dress her body – she has access to the world’s best clothes but she rarely makes the best dressed list

    • GiGi May 20, 2012 at 18:27 #

      My thoughts exactly. She must have access to the “best and the brightest” in the fashion world. She looks dreadful here… and the head-on look of her in this dress is just plain ugly. Yes, we know you have a huge rack… now get over it.

    That… is some awkward makeup. Why is it so hard for her makeup artist to just enhance her natural beauty?

    Straps or halter or something in the support category = yes. Very much needed.

    this reminds me of a monique lhullier dress that sophia vergara wore! i also would have preferred straps on this dress, as it looks absolutely tacky! as for this make up, it is an absolute disaster!

  16. CTgirl May 20, 2012 at 17:21 #

    Agree with FC, there’s a whole lot of Salma in the top of that dress. The dress is beautiful but I would be less nervous if it had straps 😉

    Clownish makeup, limp hair, and a trashy, unflattering dress. *Sigh*

      Totally. Sorry to say it but she looks like one of those tramps trying to work her way up through rich society.
