    She looks as if she’s having a lot of fun, but that right strap looks as if the seamstress got distracted and made a mistake in applying it.

  • Karen Belgrad

    French maid hair. Frankendress that looks like a snake trying to eat her (already ate the midsection). I … just… can’t. It my birthday Salma, why do you do this to me?

    • filmcricket

      Happy birthday!

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Happy Karen Day!!

      • Karen Belgrad

        Yesterday (on Miley Cyrus thread), I won the internet. Today I get my own day! I love this blog :)

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      I hope your day is better than this movie.

    • drdarke

      Happy Birthday, @karenbelgrad:disqus – and sorry THAT was your present from Selma Hayek.

    • shopgirl716

      My birthday too! Happy Birthday.

  • Sobaika

    She’s so flawless I don’t even care about the faux-Cleopatra dress.

    • jen

      I know, right?! And she’s approaching 50! It boggles the mind!

  • mmebam

    I like asymmetry, but that bodice does not look intentional enough. I just want to yank it around until I can straighten it out.

  • MilaXX

    It’s a lot of weird pieces; the trim around the bodice kinda fights the draping and cut outs & the hand bracelet never did really catch on. Yet I don’t completely hate this look.

    • kimmeister

      Those hand bracelets would drive me crazy. Plus, I gesture so much that they would probably fly off and give someone a black eye.

      • MilaXX

        Yeah I haven’t tried those, but I’m sure I’d probably fling mine across the room.

  • hughman

    Not a big fan of dresses that look like they require Ikea instructions.

    • MoHub

      But Ikea instructions rarely correspond to what it takes to actually assemble the items.

      • TheAmericaness

        I always call Ikea instructions “Instructions by Mime.”

    • Winter_White

      Instead of an Ikea hex key, this gets tightened up with that Gaydamak hand bracelet. Ah, the rich.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      as assembled by Anya.

  • http://thatswhatthemoneyisfor.wordpress.com/ lizlemonglasses

    That dress is a hot mess, but I’m impressed that she just doesn’t seem to age!

  • Diego!

    Not her best dress choice… make up and hair look perfect tough!

  • marlie

    So are hand rings/bracelets going to be a “THING” now? UGH. So dumb.

    As for the dress… that sparkly rope thingy around the top of her dress looks like the cable that I use to lock up my bike.

    • Gwyndall

      I was thinking sparkly jump rope…

      • H2olovngrl

        I was thinking she looks like she had been lassoed.

  • filmcricket

    The palm bracelet thing cracks me up. I’m hearing Lorelai Lee in my head: “I love finding new places to wear diamonds!”

  • Sarah Winningham

    She has literally billions of dollars, I don’t understand why she wears so many poorly fitted/poorly chosen/unflattering dresses.

    • filmcricket

      Or why she’s appearing in a film like this. Can’t her husband buy her a good movie?

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        I still can’t believe this beat out Pacific Rim (which was surprisingly good) at the box office over the weekend

      • Rand Ortega

        She’s a very savvy producer (“Ugly Betty” et al) in her own right. But… the suits don’t believe she or anyone like her has the BO mojo to carry a movie. Even though “Frida” won 2 Oscars, nominated for 6, made $60M worldwide on a $12M budget, not including DVD sales. Same old story. So she’s relegated to play “The Wife” in movies like “GU 2″

        • filmcricket

          Oh I know, I get it. But I just don’t understand how her multi-billionaire husband can’t get together with his billionaire buddies and put up some cash for an art flick for her. That’s how most of the decent films are made these days, with multiple backers. Who cares what the old boys network at the head of the majors say? Is going to your husband for money really more humiliating than simulating sex with Adam Sandler?

          • Rand Ortega

            OMG! LOL! That’s brilliant. But you know the game. It’s not about the $ exclusively. There’s such a maze to making films when it comes to P&A, tax credit eligibility (which I’m going through now myself– Gawd), insurance & guarantors, distribution, pre-sales, sales domestically & internationally. She’s got a kid now, it may not be worth the effort even as an independent.

            “simulating sex w/ Adam Sandler”. Ewww. I can forget about lunch, ’cause here comes breakfast.

      • Rand Ortega

        If this weren’t so wrong, I would’ve fell off my chair laughing. Salma’s mega rich on her own, being the owner of most if not all of the tv series & movies she’s produced like “Frida”, “Ugly Betty” et al.

        • Rand Ortega

          Sorry FC I didn’t realize I was replying to you below I thought i was replying to Angela. Sorry about the double reply. : )

    • GSMSF

      Maybe she likes the challenge. She’s going to look fantastic in 99% of
      clothing, so why not experiment and see if she can pull off an
      asymetrical curtain with pull rope? Evidently the answer is yes.

  • Rand Ortega

    Never liked the Heidi braids. On anyone. What’s this, now? A ‘handlet’? C’mon. Boredom should not breed silliness. The dress is odd but attention getting. A little color w/ the shoes would’ve been nice.

    • MilaXX

      Handlets and finger tip rings are the latest craze.

      • marlie

        So you can spend all day worrying about them falling off? No thank you.

        • MilaXX

          Can’t speak on the handlet, but the finger tip rings fit pretty snug.

      • Rand Ortega

        Geez…

      • kimmeister

        FingerTIP rings? That I haven’t seen yet. Do you skip the manicure on just that one finger?

        • MilaXX

          I think they are also called first knuckle rings. Instead of going all the way up the finger, they sit between the nail and first knuckle.

          • kimmeister

            Oh ok, those I have seen. I was imagining something like a thimble.

          • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

            Seeing rings like that always makes me think of Phoebe on Friends.

  • gabbilevy

    Her hair and face has been disappointing me lately. I know its hot, Salma, but step it up!

  • Tatiana Luján

    I really don’t like that sparly cable, but I like the fit. No baby heads!

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Kevin James looks hot on that poster. That is all.

    • dashransome

      And Chris Rock is making the quintessential Chris Rock face. How could he be captured making that face in a high school picture? …all this time I thought it was part of his act.

  • Adriana_Paula

    Looks like someone misses her From Dusk Till dawn snake…but I like it overall! I love when she does shapely and a little flirty.

    • Anniebet

      She looked insanely, astoundingly, amazingly sexy in that scene. Okay, was that a tad over the top? Sry.

      But, holy cats, talk about an hour-glass figure – wow! I got a girl crush real bad when I saw the film. I tried really hard to avoid seeing the snake though.

  • Judy_S

    She looks pretty good, considering how silly the dress is. I guess she doesn’t mind people inspecting her bust to see how it all works.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    OH MY GOSH. You guys, she totally stole Nicole Kidman’s hair band.

  • decormaven

    Not another braid-accented hairdo. Pinterest braids must die!

    • dashransome

      Kill the dress braid too!

  • nannypoo

    I hate this dress. Her feet are less tan than her legs. Golf?

    • Adriana_Paula

      Catholic school uniform…I still have that tan and it’s been decades…

  • Anniebet

    This is a nope. She’s still amazing, just not here.

  • http://piblet.tumblr.com/ Anastasia

    Something about this look and her eyebrows is taking me back to Kim Kardashian a la 2004.

  • Blair Sylvester

    I am shocked that she gets put in so many unfortunate and worse badly tailored outfits. I would think the brands under her billionaire husband would spend a good chunk of their time making sure that she gets the best close and that they look perfect on her. One so that they don’t piss their boss off and two because she is a highly visible representation of all the brands under her husbands umbrella.

  • Molly

    Salma Hayek starring in Snakes on a Dame!

  • Aidan B

    It pains me that designer fashions are wasted on this movie.

  • shopgirl716

    Bitch doesn’t age. Bitch. And her dress is confusing.

  • Imasewsure

    Kind of Chicos

  • bertkeeter

    If YSL had not been cremated, he’d be turning over in his grave!

  • demidaemon

    Oh, she was on top of her game for a hot minute there. Then her husband said, “Honey, you have to wear this one to the premiere.” Dollar signs flashed in his eyes, and she looked at it, sighed, and said, “I’ll work it.”

    Which, to her credit, she does, but the cutouts are dumb, and that crap on the neckline is also tres dumb.

  • hailtree

    the woman loves painful-looking shoes, doesn’t she?

  • veleri

    it seems like she’s holding her breath.

  • tboscardin

    “I just love finding new places to wear diamonds!”

  • Ugly

    i just realized that i would totally get tickets to see salma hayek on ice !!!

    really though, this is just a long ice skating dress

  • librarygrrl64

    That hairstyle is a cute way to beat the heat without employing “yoga hair.”
