Salma Hayek's Best Red Carpet Moments

With her to-die-for curves and perfectly-tanned complexion, Salma Hayek naturally looks pretty smashing no matter what she wears. But thanks to her innate style sense and fashion-savvy husband (he’s none other than PPR CEO François-Henri Pinault, who reps Gucci, Balenciaga, and more), her wardrobe puts most movie stars’ to shame. Click through to check out some of the most memorable looks our May covergirl’s ever worn.

The Best of Salma Hayek’s Red Carpet Moments

Gucci Couture
Alexander McQueen
YSL Edition Soir

Salma stunned in Gucci couture at this year’s Golden Globes. We loved the intricate beadwork and gilded accents of her dress. Who needs a statuette?

You need major personality to pull off one of Alexander McQueen’s printed cocktail dresses—and at Elton John’s Oscars afterparty in 2010, Salma proved she has what it takes.

Prada

Salma embraced her Latin American roots in this flamenco-inspired custom Prada at the 2005 Academy Awards.

Versace

Looking supremely Old Hollywood in teal Versace at a 2006 Oscars party.

Gucci Premiere
2011 Met Gala
Gucci
Frida

Salma usually picks strong colors for the red carpet, but this blush Gucci Premiere dress, which she wore at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010, suited her perfectly. Love the gold halter detail.

The actress stepped out at the 2011 Met Gala in peach-colored, curve-hugging Alexander McQueen. The rosette at her hip was an ideal finishing touch.

In early 2010, Gucci announced it would be adding couture to its label—and chose none other than Salma to debut the collection on the red carpet. How beautiful is this embellished cranberry gown?

Nobody (but nobody) does a plunging neckline like Salma, here at the LA premiere of her film Frida in 2002.

Narciso Rodriguez

At the 2003 Golden Globes in a simple, sleek, and perfectly-fitted Narciso Rodriguez gown.

Balenciaga

Pregnant and glowing in black Balenciaga at the 2007 Met Gala.

Bottega Veneta

Salma made the most of her enviable tan in this ivory Grecian-style Bottega Veneta at the 2009 Golden Globes.

Gucci Premiere Beaded Gown

Once again, Salma scored in Gucci Premiere, choosing a beaded, strapless gown for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival’s opening ceremony.
