In or Out: Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen

Posted on September 12, 2011

We’re not sure we’ve ever featured two red carpet posts in a row featuring looks from the same designer, but we thought this was yet another graphic illustration of the Number One T Lo Fashion Maxim: Girl, That Is NOT Your Dress.

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen Salma Hayek attends the premiere of “Americano” during the 36th Toronto International Film Festival in an Alexander McQueen dress.

Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 Collection/Model: Josefien Rodermans

Yikes.

When we were scrolling through the wire services looking for red carpet looks to rip to shreds discuss like grownups, we saw the thumbnails of these pictures, recognized the dress and said “Oh, we can do a post about Salma wearing Alexander McQueen.”

“Wait a minute, SALMA HAYEK is wearing ALEXANDER McQUEEN?”

That’s like Tilda Swinton wearing Diane von Furstenberg. The more you think about it, the more wrong it sounds. Salma works best in either sultry looks that play up her latin beauty or classically chic looks that work well with her body. McQueen – especially this kind of McQueen – has too much of hard edge for her soft curves. It just isn’t a good match. We really love this dress but we don’t love it on her at all. The stiff, almost armor-like bust is NOT being friendly to her girls. We also don’t think that huge “belt” (which is really just part of the dress) works with her curves either. Not that it’s unflattering in any way; she still has a slammin’ bod and it shows; just that we don’t think the way it breaks up her body is the best way to show it off. And we’re not convinced these autumnal tones are her best color scheme. The gold peep-toe slingbacks are, well, a bit tacky, frankly. This look didn’t need any more metallic accents. The Elvis mullet is just tragic. And we haven’t even bothered to mention that it all looks a bit tight on her. Oh wait. We just did.

Honey, you’re gorgeous and INSANELY wealthy. There’s just no reason for you to wear anything for public appearances that doesn’t make you look spectacular. These harder edged fashion-y looks just aren’t for you, dear. Now go home and put on a tight red gown with a sweetheart neckline. That NEVER gets old with you.

 

Vote Now!

 

IN! She’s taking a RISK, you judgmental bitches!

 

OUT! She looks like she wants to kick my ass! Hold me, T Lo!

 

 

Marisa Tomei’s far more successful attempt at wearing metallics was voted IN.

        I had a pair of earrings like that circa 1986. Mine were plastic and turquoise, and I wore them with fingerless gloves and a jean jacket. Hers are probably quite a bit more expensive but the sight of them still makes me cringe.

      That gorgeous dress is so unflattering on her upper body, she is way too busty for this.  I am despairing for my dear Salma lately, she seems to have lost her way in what looks great on her.  Her figure is one of the great, curvy, sexy figures of our generation but lately she seems to be trying to  be someone else.  I am all for trying new things, reinventing and growing in personal style but honey, try it at home, evalute then discard.

        Perhaps the problem is that she now has too many choices and thus has understandably lost it a bit, like the clothing equivalent of a someone who loves sweets marrying the guy who owns a chain of candy stores – stomach aches are bound to ensue.

          I suppose so… but it isn’t like she wasn’t a very succesful actress/producer before her marriage.  I think more likely, since her husband is CEO of PPR, she is being told what brands to wear.  PPR owns Alexander McQueen as well as Stella McCartney,Bottega Veneta, Gucci and YSL, all labels Salma has been trying to sport lately.  Like the CEO of Chryslers wife, she can’t “drive” the competition.

      OUT. The metallic bodice looks like a carapace and she looks thoroughly squished. Question: It looks as if the hem is lower in the back than in the front. Is that the case?  Seems weird with a dress that’s cut so sharply.

      Also, the 1970s Nashville hair has got to go. It is not flattering to her (or to anybody, in fact). It needs to go yesterday.

      You are right on all counts. It can be really hard to see looks you love and not get to indulge in them. I covet certain necklines, cuts, and colors that just don’t work for me. But part of finding your style, which surely is easier when you are gorgeous and wealthy, is realizing what looks you can embrace and what looks you have to admire from afar. This should have been a window-shopping dress for her.

      Totally agree, that this thing breaks her up in the wrong places. Not because she’s “latin” (although, no one of us is a language), but because she has a much shorter torso than the model. 

      Shoes: lulz.  

      However, I’m going with IN, if for no other reason to decry the idea that a) “latin beauty” and “Alexander McQueen” are mutually exclusive, b) “latin beauty” needs to be relegated to some sadly limited archetypal corral where the uniform is hourglass silhouettes in whore-red (one of my favorite reds, btw), c) where you see “Elvis mullet,” I see Edwardian Flamenco Chola (which is basically early 90s hair, and totally fun). If she had pushed the futuristic thing further, at the very least, it would have been way more interesting to see.

      The brown color is too close to skin (it either needs to be closer to khaki or mush richer), and the shoes (particularly with the purple toenails) and the attacking cleavage just make it all a little trashy.  Salma is way too old not to know how to dress for her body.  She’s married to Pinault, so you know that if an outfit doesn’t work she can send her legion of minions to simply bring back ten more options, each of which costs more than my house.  This is a Kim Kardashian-type mistake.  She knows better.

      Out. Her bosom is yearning to be free. (or is that bosoms? :P) I agree, the color is not good on her, and I never liked that hairstyle.

      Egads! This is, truly, an unmitigated disaster. The dress is too tight, her boobs could double as earrings, those shoes are horrendous, and her hair… 

      Maybe she’s converted to Scientology.

      IN. Except for the hair which is so OUT, it almost destroys the world.

    • Anonymous

      It could be in, though not perhaps what I think of as ‘her look’ except it doesn’t fit. Which is inexplicable, given the resources at her disposal.

      I also think the hair gives it a sci-fi movie vibe that it might – just barely – escape with a modern, chic haircut that she doesn’t usually sport.

      So it’s out, but with regrets. If someone who is undeniably beautiful can’t play around with their look, what fun is fashion?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5LU5C262WB3Z5F4WZ6QGKXLNLE JaneM

      She gets an out for the hairdo alone. It causes the eye to bypass her face all together and stare at the tallness of her forehead growing up into her hair tower.

      Is it me, or is she starting to look like Jane Russell?
      (not that that’s a bad thing)

    • oohsparkley!

      I was tempted to give her an in because the dress doesn’t look bad on her, just different.  But I hate the shoes and hair, so I can’t do it.  Salma does look like she could kick some ass and that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.  I’m Minnesotan and I’m going with “It’s different.”

      Ouch.  OUT.  That just looks painful, and the hair and shoes are also awful.  Sooooo not her dress.  I have to say, though, that if the “belt” were a real belt and was being used to cinch the waist of a softer, flowy dress in a different color, I think it would look smashing on her.  Applause and brownie points for trying something risky, though!

      Everyone keeps saying she’s looking sci-fi/gladiator, but I’m getting a

      skirt, forties pompadour hair, and out-of-control eyebrows…O.U.T.

      This is horrible and easily the worst look I’ve ever seen Salma in. Sad to say but she’s trying too hard with this look. The soft and beautiful gowns are her thing, not these looks. Too tight, too form cutting and frankly too young but edgy European actress for her to pull off. OUT.

      I’d have to vote her out on the hair alone.  Dear lord.  But the top of the dress is also all weird since, unlike the model, she actually has a bust.  OUT.

    • Anonymous

      I hate to say it, but I actually kinda like this on her.

      Bear with me! Yes, she’s a serious actor, but she’s gotten a lot of mileage from showing off the girls. They may be squished a bit here, but they are definitely front and center and you don’t look at much else. (It took me a while to notice the awful hairdo.)

      That said, it’s an OUT, but I’m not enthusiastic about it. I can understand how she might have looked in the mirror and said, “Eh, what the hell,” and not bothered to change clothes.

      As Tim Gunn says, I am very concerned. Why the horrid choices lately, Ms. Hayek? Are your gays feeling desperate or spiteful? Is your husband insisting on having a say in what you wear? Have you….*shudder to think*… stopped reading Tom & Lorenzo?!? I consider Salma Hayek one of the most beautiful and fascinating women of our time, so it’s with sadness and regret that I have to say OUT. Ms. Hayek, please don’t leave the chateau looking like this again.
