Who: Actress Salma Hayek
Where: At the world premiere of ‘The Prophet’ in Beirut, an animated movie that she co-produced.
Wearing: A custom blue-grey embroidered Elie Saab Haute Couture, inspired by the designer’s spring/summer 2015 Couture collection, teamed with a matching purse.
Verdict: It has been a while since I have been wowed by Salma Hayek on the red carpet, maybe it is because of her love affair with the Kering group, when your husband is the CEO of the luxury group that owns the likes of Gucci, Alexander McQueen, and Stella McCartney you can kind of understand why she is so devoted, so it was a nice change of pace to see her looking glam in Elie Saab.
This dress just oozes glamour, it is signature Elie Saab, and Salma wears it so well, I particularly love the colour and the detailing of the embroidery, the delicate shimmer really takes this dress to a whole other level.
I’m so pleased that she kept the styling simple, she didn’t overpower this gorgeous gown with heavy jewellery, she let the dress and her amazing figure do all the talking. It I had to be a little picky I do wish she had done something different with her hair, I’m not loving the old-fashioned curls.
