I personally really appreciate it when celebrities use their fame to draw attention to important issues, so props to Salma Hayek for using her time on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival to remind everyone that 200+ kidnapped Nigerian school girls are still missing. [Photo: Getty Images]
Salma Hayek has been kiiiiiilllllin’ it, fashionably speaking, in all of her recent appearances to promote that movie that rhymes with “Thrown Ups 2.” I really loved the simplicity of this outfit she wore to Katie Couric’s studio: an hourglass-shaped black dress, sky-high beige heels, and gold bangles (not to mention those big, bouncy curls!). It’s a great look for a date night, and would flatter so many different figures. I found a fabulous plus-size dress to recreate Salma’s style, and the best part? You can snap up this whole outfit for just a little over 100 bucks! Shopping details after the jump… Keep reading »
Salma Hayek’s been out and about lately promoting “Grown Ups 2,” which I’d rather not talk about, but I do want to discuss her amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, flawless hair. I mean, look at those luscious curls! I love that she’s rocking a ton of volume, even in the summer, and if I ever find out her anti-frizz secret (I’m guessing it involves some really, really expensive products and a team of Parisian hairstylists), I’ll be sure to let you know.

“I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more — exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. … A lot of the effort I make is for my husband, because I want him to be attracted to me.”
— PUH-LEASE. Salma Hayek never really struck me as being consistently eyeroll-worthy in the past, but it is entirely possible that her Very Rich husband Francois-Henri Pinault, chief executive of PPR and reigning wealthiest, douchiest illegitimate deadbeat dad of all time, brings out Salma’s inner asshole. She just sounds so …. ugh. Insufferable. [InStyle]
It takes a lot of time — like hours and hours — to watch movies. So on last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jimmy Kimmel decided to do us all a solid and create a film that encapsulated, well, every movie ever. “Movie: The Movie: 2V” is actually the sequel to last year’s equally bombastic “Movie: The Movie,” and it features about as many stars. In it, you’ll witness Matt Damon in a motion capture suit, John Krasinski as a radioactive shrimp and Salma Hayek, playing a woman who falls in love with … Salma Hayek. What can save all of these characters from the plague of sexy vampires and zombies that are wandering the Earth? And is there anything more powerful than Channing Tatum’s crotch? Watch the clip and find out. [YouTube]
This outfit Salma Hayek wore out to an awards brunch is like a master class in how to pull off sexy elegance (sexygance?). The pink coat, pearls, and black dress are classic pieces, but the addition of little details like a keyhole neckline and T-strap pumps really take the look to the next level.

I always get so inspired by red carpet fashion, until I realize that my day to day life affords me very few opportunities to wear sequin fishtail gowns, and then I get sort of depressed. But luckily for us non-famous folks, there were a few trends from last night’s Golden Globes ceremony that can easily translate to the real world: for example, sparkly statement earrings. Stars like Taylor Swift, Salma Hayek, Naomi Watts, Debra Messing, and Alyssa Milano wore huge, glam earrings last night, but this look works just as well with a little black dress for a dinner date as it does for the red carpet. Want to steal this celeb style? I found 10 pairs of gorgeous, sparkly statement earrings starting at just $24. Click through to check ‘em out…
‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

“I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood. I am happy because I eat … If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable. The truth is I just don’t have the drive to be the prettiest and the thinnest. I can be happy for other people for their beauty. Learn to be happy for others and you can never run out of happiness.”
— I guess nobody’s perfect, not even Salma Hayek: the 40-year-old actress has been going on at length recently about her “chubbiness,” even referring to herself earlier in this Harper’s Bazaar UK piece as “dyslexic, short, and chubby.” While I agree with a lot of what Salma is saying here — it’s difficult to enjoy life when you live to be thin — calling herself chubby doesn’t really accomplish anything but, um, making everyone else feel kind of awful. Seriously, a world in which Salma Hayek’s body is considered undesirable is a world I do not want to live in. [Celebitchy] [Photo: Paola Kudacki/Harper's Bazaar]
