Salma Hayek’s black & white dress in Paris for ‘Savages’: cute or unflattering?

These are photos of Salma Hayek and John Travolta in France, where they were doing some kind of photocall for Savages, the Oliver Stone film. I was going to talk about Salma Hayek and her unflattering dress, but I can’t find the designer ID, and the dress really isn’t that exciting, good or bad. It’s just kind of dull and poofy and someone with her amazing figure should be able to find better clothes with ease, so it’s a shame.

But I really want to discuss John Travolta’s wiglet situation. It’s getting worse, right? Granted, I think this is the same wiglet he was wearing in New York when he promoted Savages – this must be his offical “I worked with Oliver Stone” Wiglet. So even though I’ve seen it before, it never stops being amazing. It never stops being hilarious. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to be John Travolta, with all of those secrets and hidden psychological compartments, so many desires and urges to keep tamped down. And in the end, people are just looking at his wiglet in bewilderment. Carrie Fisher once said about John, “My feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say.” She said that about his sexuality. But should could have also been discussing his hair situation.

    He looks like a Ken doll version of himself! So sad, he should just go natural and proud of it — balding guys that shave it off are much sexier than obvious-wiglet-wearing-guys

  2. SolitaryAngel says:

    Oh my goodness, look at the body language between these two! It’s painful to see.

  3. Britt says:

    Dear god he looks fucking terrible. And if I had the money Salma has, I’d rustle up some better clothes and shoes.

    • Jacq says:

      Word. She has the best of the best at her fingertips and is (IMO) a consistent fashion “miss.” Maybe that’s just a curse of the big-chested. I wouldn’t know what that’s like – haha.
      Travolta’s eyes are super-rapey in these pictures, when you get past the coffee grounds glued on his forehead. Darling to predator, oh how the mighty have fallen.

  4. Mum says:

    Salma whatever…I want the designer ID on that merkin that’s landed on JT’s head.

  5. lucy2 says:

    His wiglet looks like astroturf.

  6. Deven says:

    John Travolta should be more concerned with what’s going on with his face than on his head. His face appears to be starched into a weird confirmation that leaves his eyes only able to open to half-mast. He looks a little like a tiki carving with a crazy haircut. Time to pack it in, Johnny.

  7. Miss Kiki says:

    I actually had a dream about JT and his wiglet the other day. I bumped into him in a nightclub and i was telling just how ridiculous it looked. He was shocked and he promised me he’d fix up. You promised Travolta, YOU PROMISED!

    • PrettyTarheelFan says:

      Miss Kiki-
      I say this with the love and respect all CBers should show each other…set the iPad down and run away. When Travolta’s wiglet of doom is invading your dreams, it’s time to take a break from gossip.
      Unless, of course, you are a wig manufactuer or a hair stylist. In that case, carry on!

      • Miss Kiki says:

        This is exactly what my bf said when I told him. I’m still finding it hysterical and I can’t look at pics of JT and TWoD without chuckling. If it happens again then you’re right, it might be time to take a CB vacation.

      • PrettyTarheel says:

        I alternate between weird celebrity dreams (weirdest sexy one-Eminem moving into my hometown, it was awesome and I didn’t want to wake up) and dreaming about contract language. I know whatever I’m talking about in my sleep is officially taking over my life. Unfortunately, I talk in my sleep, so MrTarheel knows before I wake up what was covered.

  8. I Choose Me says:

    Yeah, that’s some funky wig situation right there. I’m tempted to feel sorry for him but he made his bed so to speak. His smile never reaches his eyes anymore.

  9. Kaye says:

    Why is he squinting like that?

  10. LeslieM says:

    Dress looks bad.

  11. Cruisegirl says:

    He looks like he is constipated.

  12. Tastykakes says:

    I really like her lipstick here. Anyone have a clue what it is?

    You’d think a couple of actors would be better at hiding their obvious disdain.

  13. Jennifer says:

    That dress makes her look plump- and she’s not. Totally awful.

  14. cookie says:

    Maybe his hair hurts.

  15. Hakura says:

    His face looks exactly the same in every picture, expression almost doesn’t change *at all*… did he get injections or something? *dying at the discussion of his ‘wiglet’*

  16. Meow Mix says:

    He looks like a Vulcan. Maybe that is what happens when you try and suppress your true feelings.

  17. MaryJo says:

    Her dress is unflattering. Travolta’s face looks even worse than his wig, if that is possible.

    • Raven says:

      I’m disappointed to see her looking this way. She had another recent episode recently where she did the same thing.

  18. coconut says:

    this astroturf and the one before–if they aren’t one and the same–are two dark, too much all one color, and the wrong tone for him, so they clash with this skin. and then he goes and dies his eyebrows the exact same color = more of the same. yuck. he ought to have a better colorist/wig-maker with all his $$.

    if you look at older photos, his hair and brows do not have so much red in them and the brows are not usually dark dense looking, which helps offset them being full and close to his eyes.,mod%3D17&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=-R9XUK_HMYqA9gS0zIDoDA&biw=1204&bih=747&sei=ASBXUOafNZPo8gT3x4HgAQ

    his eyes could be squinty and small due to the bright lights facing him though Salma’s look normal. dunno. do your eyes get squinty if you’re sick or on drugs?

    i think her dress is cute but not the most flattering.

  19. bns says:

    Salma Hayek is just so damn beautiful.

  20. tru tru says:

    and the wiglet is black to match his eyebrows…


    we’re supposed to beleive that he has NO grey.

    he is clinging to something and none of us can see it, right??

    I forget he’s also an scientologist–sighhhh

  21. KellyinSeattle says:

    Get the new, John Travolta “Chia Pet’, at a store near you!

  22. Salam says:

    Posing with your hands on your hips like that isn’t going to convince us that you’re straight, Johnny boy.

  23. Cathy says:

    Travolta is a perfect example of one of the problems with botox, you can’t control the outcome. It didn’t work well for him, it’s frozen his face into a pissed off look. Also, it looks like he used black shoe polish on his hair piece and brows. What a mess. He looks absolute fake and horrible. He should immediately fire his make up artist (if he has one).

  24. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    The richer she gets, the frumpier she gets. How?

  25. Mary says:

    The dress is Dior btw and yeah he looks like out of Star Trek or something.

  26. Lizzie says:

    Eh, she looks frumpy, the dress widens her hips way too much. I’m also not thrilled about her movie! Recently she did interviews where she said something along the lines of how she forgot how to be Mexican (bc she is such an elite French billionaire now) & condemning the drug traffickers, yet here she is making money off of being Mexican & the glamorization of drug trafficking. France can keep her.

  27. A Fan says:

    She looks polished and lady-like (as usual).

  28. Wow. This blog site is sick! How can I make it look this good !?
