Salma Hayek wowed on the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Normally one to choose a low-cut dress, Salma went the opposite direction in a high-neck cut from Alexander McQueen.

In a baroque design, the actress stunned in a gold-embellished neckline that blended into a sweetheart cut of midnight blue velvet. The curve-hugging dress showed off her hourglass figure, making the petite actress actually look quite statuesque.

Salma styled her ornate gown with a gold box clutch and tiara, also from Alexander McQueen. To top it all off, she chose a high and voluminous bun, smokey eye, and nude lip.

Cindy Chao jewels completed her look.
