It’s something of a cliche for stylists to default to the sleek ponytail. We’re certainly guilty of that. If you did a search of this site on some variant of the phrase “a sleek ponytail would have suited this better,” you’d get … well, we don’t know how many hits you’d get, but it would be a LOT, we’re pretty sure.
Salma Hayek attends premiere of “Savages” in Los Angeles in a Gucci Première gown paired with Neil Lane jewelry.
So thank you, Salma, for reminding us that the sleek ponytail is not the answer every time. It doesn’t look horrible or anything, but it does nothing at all for this look. As for the dress, the color’s really pretty on her but she is once again wearing something that gives the impression it’s heavy and armored. That neckline combined with the racer back is making her boobs suffer. It’s a beautiful dress, but nothing about this look really excites us. The jewelry’s nice, we suppose. Then again, her husband’s a billionaire. It damn well better be nice.
IN! Sleek & Sexy!
OUT! Heavy & Half-assed!
The Bitter Kittens could NOT get behind Zoe Saldana’s “peplum and tap pants” combo, voting it OUT.
