Salma Hayek In Stella McCartney – 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Salma Hayek attended the 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday night.

For the event the actress chose to wear a gown by British designer Stella McCartney.

Salma looked her stunning self on the red carpet, but I’m not sure everything about this dress works.

While the skirt is a great length – showing offer her slim ankles and peep-toe platforms – the reverse scoop bodice seems to jolt. Perhaps it’s because I’m so used to seeing her enhancing rather than hiding her cleavage?

I love the pop of colour provided by her aqua Judith Leiber East/West crocodile clutch and Graziela earrings.

    Salma Hayek shouldn’t try to hide her bust. That’s why most of her recent looks don’t work. She should try to wear dresses that don’t focus on her breasts but more like make it them look less “in your face”. Tadashi does wonders for big breasts celebrities such as Queen Latifah or Octavia Spencer. We can see she looks uncomfortable having to hide them.

    This is one weird dress – don’t like it at all.

    I like the dress, but it does do weird things around her waist–she almost looks pregnant, but we just saw her in Venice where she didn’t look pregnant at all! Love her hair, makeup and earrings.

      I agree.

      She totally looks pregnant. Quite unflattering for her gorgeous figure.

    Scarlett Johansson wore a pretty similar dress some time ago for The Avengers LA Premiere, but in that case, the dress was shorter and tighter around the waist and hips, which was pretty favourable for her figure. I think Salma should have worn exactly the same design because this one is a total disaster… she looks like a bag of potatoes…

    I think this is one of the most figure flattering dresses she’s ever worn. I really like how it downplays her bosom and everything is simple and sleek letting her natural beauty shine through. It’s really nice for a change.

    Didn’t ScarJo wear this?

    This dress makes her look overweight and we all know she’s not. Not the right dress for her figure.

    This is just so boring. There is nothing inherently good or bad about it, it just is.
    She’s got such spectacular curves and amazing designers to work with, this dress doesn’t take advantage of any of those things.

      Couldn’t agree more.

    I actually like the reverse scoop bodice – for once I’m not distracted by her bust. It’s the skirt that bothers me, it’s kinda stiff and awkward, isn’t really working for short curvy Salma. Her aqua accessories are beautiful, but the watch is a distraction, and the shoes are heavy, she needed a leg-lengthening non-boring sandal with this rise and fall hemline.

    I’m bored of her enhanced cleavage, so I think she looks amazing here. I just love the pop of colours via her earrings and her clutch.
