Salma Hayek at a benefit in a head band

Salma Hayek topped off a beautiful draped Grecian-look white one shoulder dress with a bizarre black headband that looked like a hair net. Salma is gorgeous and I love her flapper-inspired hair with controlled soft waves, but that thing on her forehead has got to go. The headband trend has gone too far, and I never quite understood why it’s become so popular. Headbands look arguably cute and a little quirky on celebrities like Mischa Barton, Nicole Richie, and Ashlee Simpson. They’re a way to complete an outfit that looks like it was just thrown together, and are not an accessory for a gorgeous formal dress, no matter how elegant they look.

What do you think, does lovely Salma manage to make the dressy headband work?

Salma is rumored to have reunited with her ex fiance and her daughter’s father, billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. The two were seen out at a football game together in France, only one of many recent sightings of the supposed ex-couple. Francois-Henri was photographed kissing another woman in late August at a time when he was said to have already split from Salma. Either the Salma and Francois-Henri remain friendly for the sake of their 14 month old daughter, Valentina, or have reconciled and are trying to keep it quiet.

    YIKES. No, the headband doesn’t work. Neither does the make-up.

    Girl’s looking rough.

    I wonder if it’s a Phoebe Price original?

  3. SeVen says:

    with her tanned mexican complexion she should not be using dark colors 🙁 the headband is atrocious and her makeup artist needs to be fired

    body looks good tho!

    OMG I thought the headline was she was at a benefit for headbands 😆 😆 😆

    And even though I quickly realized what the title ACTUALLY was, I still thought “well, you know, this headband thing is stupid, maybe she SHOULD be at a benefit for headbands…”

    I’ll throw some money to that charity… 😆

    Is she bleeping insane?!

    What she think she is? Greek goddess? 🙄

    Very 1920s/30s flapperish.

    Yah know how sometimes you just have one of those “off” days? No matter how much makeup… no matter how much time you spend on your hair… you still think you look like crap? It looks like she’s having one of those.

    Based on what little I can see of the shoes in one of the pics, they’re wrong for the dress as well. It’s like different people did each part of her look.

    Makeup looks bad

  9. Mairead says:

    A thin Swarovski crystal headband to tie in with the classical Greek theme might have looked well and tied in with the hair. This… not so much.

  10. Lisa says:

    Huh, interesting choice.

  11. Megan says:

    I wonder if this is similar to the Zeta-Jones incident where she looks bad because she fell out with her makeup artist lol

    I think it looks great!!it has a 1930’s flair.

  13. Buttercup says:

    The whole look just doesn’t work.

    She’s starting to look more and more like Freida Kahlo. All she needs is the mustache.
