Salma Hayek InStyle June 2010 In McQueen

  • Pin it

Salma Hayek Pinault is, undoubtedly, a beautiful woman. But I hardly felt impressed by her wardrobe. Until now. Yes, I’m aware of the fact that this is a magazine cover and they hardly (read impossible) go by without professional styling. Despite that – you know, I know, everybody knows – the stylist doesn’t impose on celebrities. He/she only comes with a selection for the celebrity to choose from. And Salma chose (for the cover of InStyle June 2010) McQueen! Oh, how I love you for doing that!

Facing the genius that was Alexander McQueen, maybe, people will realize what they have before losing it! Other than gorgeously wearing the Spring Summer 2010 McQueen dress on the cover of InStyle, Salma’s inside interview touches her family and fashion interests. Married to fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma is, more than ever, tied to fashion. That makes her opinion even more relevant. But who am I kidding? I still believe the more relevant thing until now is her McQueen cover! What say you?

Imagine what I would like if I was Madame Pinault! Ha!

Let’s talk about the great McQueen. That dress on the cover is genius. How did he do it? That print, the cut…..believe me I type this with chicken skin and tears in my eyes…..:(

The dress is amazing, but I don’t think Salma should stress this style, I prefer the subscribers’ cover dress… Anyway, she wore a very similar McQueen dress to the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party, and I didn’t like it on the red carpet either :(
Naomi Campbell wore the InStyle cover dress for the Elle Style Awards, and she did it million times better than Salma Hayek.

I am a big admirer of Salma. I like that she is creative and has a style that does not scream LOOK AT ME AND KEEP LOOKING OR ELSE I SHALL FADE AWAY!
This Alexander McQueen dress (may he rest in peace) is stunning and it shows just how much of a artist he was and how much he will be greatly missed. You are right Adriana about that.
I am glad that Salma is happy she looks it and wears it well.

Agreed! Didn’t like it on Naomi either though.
This is not Salma’s style at all. I wouldn’t be negative though and focused on the dress….:)

Maybe that’s why it works on a cover: the dress (a-ma-ha-zing) is inconsistent with Salma’s style (which is fabulous:)) and it creates a little buzz around it… Go girls, get the magazine and check out the entire coverstory:)))

I think the dress on the cover is absolutely hideous. Salma has the ability to make anything look elegant. McQueen has done a lot of interesting things but a lot has also been very hit and miss.
