Oscars 2018 Red Carpet Report: Salma Hayek, Just So Very EXTRA, in Gucci

Posted on March 05, 2018

Darlings, it’s possible you think this look is a bit over the top, which would make it more or less in line with everything else Miss Salma wears in public, because “over the top” is basically her game. And it’s possible you think that this time, she’s gone too far and too tacky for the Oscars. It might even be possible that you blurted out “CHANDELIER WITH BOOBS!” as one of us may or may not have done, upon first laying eyes on it.

But we can’t help it…

We love it.

Maybe not effusively, with all kinds of finger-snapping involved, but we think it’s kind of drag-fabulous and fun. Given that she was presenting on the topic of “Time’s Up” with Mira Sorvino and Annabella Sciorra, both of whom wore gowns that coordinated well with this one as well as with the deep purple gown Ashley Judd wore, we felt like we were getting an interesting range of looks that were nonetheless coordinated to tell a story. All of these women have spoken out about the abuses and injustices they’ve received at the hands of powerful men in the industry. We got a simple, classic gown with Ashley Judd, a ridiculously romantic one with Mira Sorvino, a somewhat serious and downplayed one with Annabella Sciorra, and then there was Miss Salma, showing up like a birthday party decoration. There’s nothing wrong with looking festive or even a little tacky – even if you’ve got something serious to talk about.

No, it’s not chic. It’s fun and glamorous.
