Salma Hayek Style Double Shot: Cannes Edition

Posted on May 20, 2014

Miss Salma finds herself in a very pink mood at the moment. Let’s assess; shall we? Allons-y.

We didn’t much like this dress when Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore it, finding it a bit drab and shapeless. Not so with Salma. It helps that it’s hemmed just at the knee instead of the below-the-knee style JLD favors. This was clearly designed with her body type in mind and she’s making this frock sing. Unfortunately, it’s singing a duet with those shoes, which makes us weep. We canNOT with little pink bows on grown women’s shoes. Unless they plan on doing a tap number, in which case, we’re fully supportive.

Suddenly…

Barbie appears. And y’know? We’re quite okay with it. We’d probably rag on Carrie Underwood if she wore something like this, but Miss Salma’s got the ability to take a relatively simple Barbie gown and make it a head-turner of a look. Not loving the hair, though. A loose up ‘do would’ve looked great here. And that clutch is all kinds of wrong, unfortunately.
