I was just checking out photos of Salma Hayek, her billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault, and their cute daughter Valentina. Salma is definitely a style icon worth looking at first in the new Women's Fashion site series Celebrity Style.
Let's see what makes this starlet so amazing.
Have you ever seen Salma looking bad on an award show red carpet? Nobody has. To accentuate her great curves, Salma always wears clothes that exude femininity and glamour. She is a big fan of luxurious long gowns and maxi dresses in womanly styles and fabrics. Flowing gowns slit until the thighs with plunging necklines in deep tones like ruby red and royal purple make up her classic red carpet look.
Unlike her va va voom nighttime looks, Salma goes for basics when she's out with her daughter or going shopping and grabbing some coffee. She does not take her movie star look to the street. A big fan of wide legged denim, Salma rocks a good pair of jeans with fun t-shirts, colorful cardigans accessorized with scarves, and leather jackets. For the winter, she loves her skinnies much like all of us with tucked in boots and coats in darker colors and adds her infamous berets.
This 5 ft 1 actress knows how to dress for her petite frame. She always wears sexy stilettos, peep toes, or chunky wedges to add a little height. Her dresses are either above the knee or below it to avoid shortening the legs. Although she makes an exception with wide leg trousers, she likes boot cut jeans which are perfect for petite figures. Her fitted jackets are a petite lady's best friend.
Salma never wears huge accessories together. Maybe it’s her much flattered body, maybe she's just a simple girl, but you always feel like she's not wearing as many elaborate accessories as other celebrities on the red carpet or otherwise. She never crowds her look and her focus is always on the outfit and the hair. Salma loves her waist cinching belts, hats, and dangling earrings.
Get the Look
If you're a petite raven haired beauty like Salma or you just love her style, you can always adapt the look and follow her lead. Choosing more feminine styles and soft stretch fabrics that show off your assets and focusing more on the outfit rather than the accessories will get you one step closer to the 44 year old star's fashion vision who maintains a strong contrast between her old Hollywood glamour red carpet looks and fresh casual styles.
