Girl, That’s Not Your Look: Salma Hayek in Saint Laurent

Posted on April 26, 2013

When we look at the following pictures and consider what Miss Salma wore last week, we think it’s safe to say three things about her current style:


Salma Hayek attends ‘Les P’tits Cracks’ – Charity Dinner At Pavillon des Champs Elysees in Paris in Saint Laurent.

Saint Laurent Spring 2013 Collection/Model: Elsa Sylvan (OUI)

  1. She’s having a ’70s moment.
  2. She’s having a turquoise moment.
  3. These moments cannot end quickly enough for T Lo.

Girl, we don’t know what the hell spurred on this sudden left-turn into Liz Taylor circa 1975, but it is NOT YOUR LOOK. Hell, it wasn’t even Liz’s look. Pack this up and ship it off to Jennifer Lawrence, dear. Let’s get you back into those rich bitch getups that you make sing.

      Pretty much the kind of shit I’d wear if I were a billionaire’s wife. Though I probably wouldn’t even bother with a bra.

    • decormaven

      Feeling absolutely weepy looking at this. This is fashion emergency, STAT.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Ooh, the visible black bra. Do you want to make us all cry, Salma? Is that it?

      • winchesterCAT

        The bra is the prettiest, most flattering thing she’s wearing, though.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      This is what happens when you fire the naysayers. Honey, you need one in your life.

    • SewingSiren

      Old Hollywood glamour. I kind of like it. In a way.

      • Moriginal

        Me too. Even though she could fit a side of beef in those sleeves, I’m not hating it.

    • John Hodgins

      She must have really liked the look of her “Milk” ad. Actually, I take that back. That look was better than this.

    • annabelle archer

      Is this some sort of cry for help?
      Is she miserable in some way? Afraid of aging? Going through hormone spikes? What is happening here? It’s been a steady decline in Hotness and I have concerns.

      • AnaRoW

        While I don’t think the outfit’s quite that bad, I can’t help but feel that her marriage has done her no favors. She seems less “Salma” somehow, if that makes any sense. I may just be reading more into than there is since I don’t like her husband.

        • annabelle archer

          No, I know exactly what you mean. She’s lost her sparkle since getting together with him.

        • SassieCassy

          maybe its not marraige but baby-related? i know what you are saying

    • MilaXX

      This looks awful on her. Hate the exposed bra & the dress swallows her up.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I would like this very much if she wasn’t showing her bra.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Girl, it is never your dress. Which is a shame considering what you have access to.

    • Little_Olive

      Nooooooo… and with tassels!! Over an exposed bra!

      Salma, I like yoy but you’re moving over to the bad side of rich wifedom.

    • Catiline

      Not Her Dress is putting it mildly. Hell, I’d say this is a strong contender for a “Salma Hayek Gives Up” post.

      • drdarke

        My Mother-in-Law has a bathrobe that looks just like that….

        My Mother has better taste – and so does my wife.

        • yulaffin

          Exactly – a bathrobe or a housecoat.

    • Bert Keeter

      YSL, I mean the “REAL” YSL, knew how tho make a look like this work! As simple as this look appears there is way too much going on…that huge buttoned cuff for example is wrong with the cord at neck and the wide self sash! Volume of sleeve…. it just keeps getting worse!

      • eowyn_of_rohan

        Yes. The disconnect between the old-school YSL and the newest incarnation is jarring. I’m all for brands evolving, but if you’re going to revisit looks that put the brand on the map, it shouldn’t look like a shoddy knock-off.

    • tereliz

      Looks comfortable. But somehow on Salma—I’m partially blaming the bra—it’s looking a little too matronly boudoir-adjacent. Definitely not her look.

    • marlie

      This just… makes me sad. Eva Mendes is having a 70s moment… ship this dress off to her.

    • Pennymac

      Darling Salma,

      With your beauty, your access to money, and designers falling over themselves to give you stuff, there really is no excuse for making people cry.

      This entire look is a crime….

    • Lori

      If you have to wear a bra then that kind of keyhole neckline isn’t for you. This is not complicated.

    • VioletFem

      I think the color looks great on her but the style is all wrong.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      Throw in a turban and some shoulder pads and it’s a “no wire hangers” moment. Oh, and running mascara.

    • conniemd

      Two things I’d never place together: monk’s robe with a keyhole peep into a black lace bra. Really really bizarro

    • CPK1

      this is without a doubt awful but if I had to choose i would take it over the truly hideous pant suit of last week. But that’s not saying much

    • theblondette

      I guess at that wealth level if you needed it, you could hire people to hold the girls up.

      • SassieCassy


      • lovelyivy

        It’s Salma Hayek. Dudes would fight to the death for the honor!

    • Imasewsure

      Yes bring back your inner Sophia Loren, Ms. Salma… one awful dowdy look after another these days

    • joanna dash

      But it has tassels!

    • sweet_potato

      That poor, wealthy woman.

    • teensmom99

      Us she going for Amanda Blake on gunsmoke or Belle Watling in Gone With the Wind?

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      If the top of the dress didn’t have that weird opening this actually wouldn’t look too bad. It’s probably a size too big on her, but I think it could have a relaxed-chic thing going on (the top is just so unfortunate)

    • crash1212

      Nicely fitted bra though.

    • E. D.

      This is one of those “scroll down” shots. Didn’t see the sleeves (yikes) or the skirt (OMG NO) on the newsreader shot. Don’t mind turquoise on her though.

    • Kate4queen

      That’s just terrible!

    • mmc2315

      Sing it. You are so right, TLo.

    • SassieCassy

      where is her crystal ball tho

    • buscateunomasalto

      I love it.

    • sekushinonyanko

      I bet Eva Mendes is so peeved right now…

    • kirkyo

      She’s become the gold standard for these “Not your look” posts. The only think I like is the neckline

    • MoHub

      It it was meant to be a peignoir and not to be worn out in public, I might accept it. And if it were tighter and had huge shoulder pads, I’d call it Joan Collins Dynastywear

      But I believe Joan was older then than Salma is now.

    • YoungSally

      Le p’tits cracks ??? Somethings do not translate well from the French….

    • Adriana_Paula

      Maybe if it were knee length and the front were closed?

    • Joanne Abrams

      Definitely looks like a bathrobe, a bad bathrobe!

    • Anniebet

      Did she join a cult that allows lacy black bras?

      • bd73

        well how else is a cult gonna make money? panhandling on a whole ‘nother level.

    • lobsterlen

      That is the aqua version of the Jesus robe Angelina was wearing a few weeks ago.

    • girliecue

      I’m assuming her husband is making her dress this way. And given the outfits she’s worn the last couple of years I’d say she’s got reasonable grounds for divorce.

    • TheAmericaness

      Too much money + too much time + surrounded by “yes ladies” = THAT. Cure? Small apartment in NYC on a money diet with two gays to bitch slap her if she goes near anything retro.

    • e jerry powell

      That’s not anyone’s look. Not even 1972 porn stars.

      Lord, take me now.

      • e jerry powell

        Looks like I have to take that back already. Bette Midler is wearing it’s filthy cousin in I’ll Eat You Last on Broadway.

    • unbornfawn

      This moment can’t be over too soon for this bitter kitten either.

    • Phyllis Craine

      This is what happens when shoppers and designers actually believe the crap that Pantone publishes about seasonal color predictions, which Pantone claims is based on market research but I’m convinced is just a marketing ploy.
