WERQ: Salma Hayek in Gucci

Posted on September 04, 2012

Having gotten the morning announcements out of the way, let us start the day off with worship. Let us pray.


Salma Hayek attends the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema during the 69th Venice International Film Festival in a Gucci gown.


That’s a star, darlings. If your hair or our hair (if we had any) was whipping around and blowing in our faces while someone tried to take our picture, the resulting images would be hilarious, but decidedly un-fabulous. But when it happens to Salma, she takes that moment and makes it SEXY, bitches.

You WERQ those pillows, girl. Drop dead gorgeous. Even the gay men in the immediate area can’t take their eyes off her. Granted, they’re probably saying bitchy things under their breath about her shoes, but still.

  • you bombilicious man destroyer you

  • Whoa. Dayum. That’s some impressive cleavage. 

  • Jangle57

    I don’t know – I think if the neckline plunged just a little less and the shoes were less clunky looking, I’d consider it a WERQ.  But she does look fabulous.  

  • Sobaika


    She looks fabulous. It might have been too much for practically any other venue, but she looks great for this setting.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    that cleavage makes an impressive altar for worship…:)

    • poggi

       And candles, reliquaries, and a host of other objects

  • shopgirl716

    46 years old and showing the starlets how it is done.  She is majuh.

  • 1blogless

    Gosh, she looks beautiful but I just don’t think that dress is all that flattering to her figure.

    • She is WERQing, but the dress is really like one of Christina Hendricks’ missfires. Although a better fit in the boobs.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        Hendricks would have a pussy bow tied at the top of her neck. 

        • mhleta

          I read this wrong the first time and BOY did I have a weird image in my mind! (ie Hendricks would have a pussy bow-tied at the top of her neck.)

    • ballerinawithagun

      I agree. It seems a little loose and too gathered under the bust. She doesn’t need any extra in that area! She is still stunning though.

    • I agree. It’s a nice way to showcase her spectacular rack, but otherwise I think it makes her look stumpy and weirdly sway-backed.

  • SapphoPoet

    Gorgeous. I love how these photos look natural and unposed; like how any of us would pose in a beautiful dress with Venice in the background.

  • BPlease

    I think she looks stumpy and tacky here.  

  • MarissaLG

    She looks phenomenal, but if I may get bitter for a moment: is it just me or does that dress look kinda cheap? It could totally be the lighting, but is there something about that makes it look a little David’s Bridal-y?

  • ccinnc

    I didn’t realize she was THAT buxom. She looks fine, but I don’t love it.

  • Holy Jeebus-N-Mary on a Seesaw!
    Of course, being photographed in a Gucci gown, next to the lagoo. Of Venice, at twilight, sure doesn’t hurt the total effect.

  • She looks great, but it’s probably not a good idea to display the breasts when your milk commercials are still running on TV.

    • Ryan Williamson

      I’m not seeing why that’s a bad idea. 

      • Because assholes like me are making “Got Milk?” jokes rather than appreciating the loveliness that is Salma. 😉

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Ah!  Beautiful – beautiful woman, beautiful setting. 

  • Oh my stars. I will worship at whichever altar will get me a figure like that.

  • SewingSiren

    Makes me wish I was a baby again.

  • jmorino08

    Best rack going right now… and she knows how to work them!

  • MissAnnieRN

    Bow down. When she gets it right, no one can toP her. Oh, how I love her.

    • carolynmo

      Bow down, indeed. No other phrase applies.

  • jw_ny

    That last pic of her…wow!  Serving it up in classic Sophia Loren style. 

  • Vanja

    She looks gorgeous. That beautiful backdrop of Venice also helps, but I wish, some one would have gotten rid of the taped cross on the floor.

    • Sara LaBatt

      I picture them telling her to stand on the mark & she told them HELL no I’m not standing that close to stank canal!

      • Vanja

         “In these shoes? I don’t think so.”

  • yybb

    I will sound mean. If only she was as good actress as she is a poser.

  • She needs to find a better undereye concealer (as a fellow fairish Latina, I feel for her – for some reason most fair skin concealers are made for the rosier complexions).
    Love this look. Wish I were in Venice.

    • mamafitz

      so that’s the problem i’ve been having!  you have any suggestions?  i can’t seem to find one that isn’t pink. 

      • Anathema_Device

        Have you tried Bobbie Brown? All their stuff runs a bit toward the yellow side of things. I would suggest purchasing at a place like Nordstrom, where you can return it. I returned a few foundations until I got the right color.

      • Anathema_Device makes good suggestions. I’m trying out the L’oreal True Match line right now which is alright – it has Cool, Neutral, and Warm (which I like, because I’m warm-neutralish so I’m trying out mixing and matching some things). But that’s mostly because I buy all my makeup at the drugstore and as a student I pick cheap brands and mostly suffer the consequences. 
        Still, Salma has the money and new excuse. She could probably get the concealer hand-mixed in front of her. I blame her makeup artist cutting corners. 

        • mamafitz

          Thank you both, I will check those out. I’m not one for much foundation, but at 42, I’m starting to see a need.

  • l_c_ann

    She and Venice make each other look great.

  • mjude

    the last photo is the WERQ!

  • Judy_J

    Holy camoly….those are some bodacious ta-tas!

  • Vickiefantastico

    Utterly fabulous. That’s how it’s done, little starlets!

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Goddamn, that’s a great dress on her.

  • CPK1

    gorgeous. But yes, yuck, satin peeptoe platforms must die

  • annrr

    Everything looks great but her make-up. Her concealer is too visible b/c its the wrong color.

  • Call me Bee

    Beautiful!  WERQ, indeed. 

  • beebee10

    Divine Supreme WERRRRQ! For the Pantheon. 

  • prettybigkitty


  • Anathema_Device

    Love it. She looks absolutely beautiful.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    She’s fabulous. WERQ

  • RoxieRider


  • Sarah Thomas

    First two thoughts:

    1. Someone make a wine or emerald colored version of that dress and send it to Christina Hendricks, now

    2. Are we about to hear she’s getting divorced?

  • You WERQ that dark Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” shit, girl!

  • CQAussie

    This is fabulous, have to agree.  But yep, those shoes are not the right ones.  I feel like strappy would have worked better.  But wow, she looks amazing =)

  • She looks gorgeous. Christina Hendricks needs to borrow this dress. 

  • rawrgrowlrawr

    My 34As are crying. 

  • Werqing that dress with onyx realness!

  • petalfrog

    Her makeup is pretty much a mess… and she looks kind of anxious… not really comfortable and relaxed. Love her cleavage though!

  • Rand Ortega

    That is some gold medal cleavage right there. She really looks fantastic. That dress is perfect for her. The accessories compliment w/out being too funereal. Flaw. Less!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I am totally coveting that ring.

  • watchmeboogie

    I almost never use this word but she is just luscious. Everything about her is complete and total VA-VA-VOOM. And unlike a lot of man-killers, she doesn’t come across as icy or bitchy. She’s warm and sweet and totally appealing.

  • kimmeister

    My goodness, they take up her entire torso.

  • Amy

    They’re real and they’re magnificent!

    Seriously Salma…your chest is like a work of art!

  • She is my ultimate girl crush.

  • i just want to bury my head in her pillows.

  • carpediva

    Ugh. Not doing it for me AT ALL.

  • MilaXX

    Love the look. I don’t thnk Gucci always works with her body, but she is putting it down here.

  • PastryGoddess

    Salma. Venice. Superstar.

  • elemspbee

    The shoes is designed to match the gatherings around her pillows

  • Salma, you’re my curvacious queen forever. Bow down before her grace.

  • granddelusion

    My god, those things are huge.

  • This is the body I want!

  • Scott Isaacs

    Love love love all around. Ain’t nothing wrong here at all. Beyond the fact that Salma looks fantabulous, such a dramatic backdrop cannot have been coincidence or an afterthought. Kudos to whomever chose this exact location for this photoshoot.

  • guest2visits

    I thought you were praying she wasn’t about to blow over into the canal. Thats alot of sail wind in that dress for such a tiny figure.
    And yes, she’s just being beautiful again.

  • I say this as a heterosexual woman, but DAMN, them jugs!  She’s clear into Hendricks territory!  I do think she looks lovely, but it’s hard to focus on the outfit as a whole without coming back to those gazongas!

  • butterflysunita

    She is a true beauty with real charisma.  She’s schooling all these new starlets I can’t tell apart.  

  • kikisayshi

    How does she carry around that amazing rack?

  • quiltrx

    I like how the “stand on the x” is where the wind can knock various starlets off into the canal.  Good for Salma for knowing better.

    And you work those things, girl!  Love your ring!

  • TieDye64

    Holy Mary mother of Jesus, let us pray indeed! And hot dayum, she really is WERQing those pillows. 

  • ccm800

    I do NOT like the makeup AT all – terrible lip color on her skin tone and the wierd oink under her eyes – is freaking ODD –  but hell yeah – all in all – fab

  • bitterk

    She really knows how to dress her body. And she looks classy. Not easy to do when you your girls are that big.

  • LambeeBaby

     Pillows? Those are bean bag chairs.
    The does look like a 50’s movie star.
    Fabulous glamour.
    WERQ sister!

  • hate the makeup though.
