Salma Hayek In The Vampire’s Wife – AMPAS Women In Film Lunch

Salma Hayek attended the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Women In Film lunch held at Claridge’s Hotel today (October 6) in London.

The actress usually stays within the Kering family when it comes to her red carpet looks, but on this occasion she opted for a look from the independent label, The Vampire’s Wife.

I have always adored Salma in colour and in something flattering, so at first glance this tickets both boxes.

The length gives her some height, the necklace didn’t really work and the barely seen tassel accented bag is complementary in colour if nothing else.

This is a hit for me.

Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

Salma Hayek In Preen – SiriusXM Studios

Salma Hayek paid a visit to SiriusXM Studios on Thursday (August 17) in LA, before headed to tape her guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel where she promoted her new film, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’.

I love the romantic and feminine feel of her Preen Resort 2018 dress, plus the relaxed undone vibe and the fluidity of the fabric.

As we know Salma can overcook her looks – especially when she opts for Gucci these days – but this pretty floral frock feels effortless.

Some might object to the Gucci ‘Angel’ platform sandals, but I love how it picks up and highlights the pink flowers in her dress.

Salma Hayek In Temperley London – Build Presents ‘Beatriz At Dinner’

Salma Hayek was at the Build Studios in New York City to discuss ‘Beatriz At Dinner’ on Wednesday (June 7).

Salma’s style choices can be perplexing at times, but here she stuck to the basics in a Temperley London Fall 2017 dress.

The subtle prairie-inspired sensibility was prevented from too much literalness with the sophisticated, black-and-white colour palette and the absence of the sleeves.

Once I got past the white bib effect, it was a chic if forgettable look for the actress with the boldness of the red lip adding a nice touch.

Salma Hayek In Stella McCartney – ‘Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz At Dinner’ Sundance London Screening

Salma Hayek attended the screening of ‘Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz At Dinner’ in Mayfair on Thursday (June 1) following the Sundance London Filmmaker and press breakfast earlier in the day.

There’s something incredibly pedestrian and off-putting about this look. It’s largely to do with the colour, or lack of, and the unflattering silhouette.

The actress, who is usually a bastion of colour and intrigue, seems to have had another fashion misstep.

An all-black ensemble can look sophisticated and sexy but this look is sadly overworked. The ruffles, draping, and gathered sleeves make the dress look like it has too much fabric.

The styling, far from saving the look, adds to the chaos. A large belt buckle, cumbersome leather purse, and high black heels feel clunky and ill-thought out.

Gucci Cruise 2018 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show which took lace a the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy yesterday (May 29) was filled with famous faces, and some incredibly fashion-forward outfits.

Kirsten Dunst: Fresh from her successful Cannes adventure, the actress was still in the mood to embrace colour wearing a Gucci Spring 2017 two-piece, with the skirt being the standout feature. We don’t often see Kirsten rock bold patterns, so this added a fun element to her look.

Donald Glover: The ‘Atlanta’ star is a man of many talents; now he can add snappy dresser to the list too. You couldn’t help but notice him as his outfit was the perfect combination of comfort and style. There is nothing better than a bold floral shirt on a fella, especially when tempered with a cool navy shorts and white leather Gucci ‘Ace’ sneakers. However, it’s that wide-brimmed hat that really sells this look.

Dakota Johnson: Proving that she is definitely ready for spring, Datoka’s black halterneck Gucci Fall 2017 dress with bright pink patterns was the epitome of laid-back but chic. I love how the accessories brightened the look further.
