Salma Hayek in Gucci at the 2017 SAG Awards

Posted on January 30, 2017

Salma Hayek attends the 2017 SAG Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.


All things considered – like her entire red carpet history of the last three or four years – this could have been a lot worse. The dress fits her – mostly – and the style flatters her – mostly.

The bust is fitted a bit oddly, in a way that obliterates any natural shape. It’s not that she’s too big-busted to wear a one-shoulder dress with a ruffle, but we think the fit could be a little less armor-like. And yes, the colors are eye-searingly awful, but they are, unfortunately on trend – although we’d argue that pink-and-yellow trend has been on a downward slide of late.


What? Don’t look at us like that. We didn’t say we liked it. It’s kind of tacky, to be honest. But it really is a little bit better than most of what she’s worn in the last year.

Discussion point: Yellow’s not really her color at all, is it?

Second discussion point: That bag is a Tragic Match. It would look great with some other, FAR less yellow ensemble. But pair it with that dress and it just looks cheap and loud. Sigh.

We’re sighing.
