Salma Hayek in Gucci at the Palm Springs film festival: gorgeous in green?

2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala

Here are more photos from the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s opening night gala. SO many celebrities came out for it, which is nice, until you remember that most of these celebrities probably just fancied a few relaxing days in Palm Springs, getting facials and massages and doing an hour-long Q&A session here and there. Salma Hayek was there, and she wore this bright Gucci gown. I actually like this a lot? Salma has access to so many interesting looks through her husband’s business, but she’s been choosing some of the worst gowns for the past few years. This Gucci dress is flattering and pretty.

Jessica Chastain wore a black lace Givenchy to the Palm Springs opening night. I’m meh on the dress – it looks like something the Duchess of Cambridge would wear. She made a speech too, about how change is coming, and how #NotAllMen are total douchebags.

Gal Gadot in Esteban Cortazar. You guys might remember that I have a thing about yellow and orange on red carpets. Like, I hate almost every yellow or orange gown ever, and I believe that they have no place on a red carpet. So… yeah, I’m not crazy about this gown. But I’ve come to believe, in the past year, that Gal Gadot really isn’t a fashionista. I don’t think she cares that much.

It cracks me up that Armie Hammer was, at one point, considered a shoo-in for Best Supporting Actor this year. His big mouth has really hampered his Oscar campaign, and it’s sort of funny.

Is Gary Oldman still a big contender for Best Actor for his Churchill movie? Hm.

    I like Armie Hammer’s take on the tux/suit.

    I love Gal’s dress, but it washers her out. Would have been beautiful on a deep skin tone, like Lupita.

    • seesittellsit says:

      Agree – the dress is beautiful on her spectacular figure, but the color washes her out. Pale blue, e.g., would have worked better.

    • LadyT says:

      No to his tux. Made of Poo brown sateen striped sheets. Dreadful.

    Salma is one of the most gorgeous actresses. And through the years she’s shown herself to be very funny and smart in interviews.

    She looks great here.

  3. Renee2 says:

    NO to Salma’s overall look. No to her makeup, no to the hue of the gown, no to the pink bow at the waist, she is not an 8 year-old!!! Plus, it is ill-fitting in the bust. Her hair looks nice though.

    Racist Gary Oldman’s suit is a nice colour, though it could have been a bit more tailored, maybe???

    Armie Hammer looks bad…the colour of his suit jacket, ugh, it does nothing for him!! Gal Gadot’s dress reminds me of my favourite Chiclet flavor so she gets points for that which are then subtracted by the style and execution of the dress. She and Armie, are attractive people who frequently look bad. When I am in charge this will be considered as a crime against humanity.

    Jessica Chastain never looks good to me but for me this is one of her better looks, though I still hate it. I’m glad that her performative wokeness is being challenged. Why do we need to say #notallmen are shitty??? To me, this is akin to all lives matter. Critiquing men who abuse their power does not automatically mean that #allmenaregarbage, but enough of them are that we have this ongoing, systemic mess. For those who aren’t they need to step up and get to work alongside the women.

    • Umyeah says:

      I have to disagree with your #notallmen commemt. I think at this point in the battle against sexual harrasment its important that some men are standing up for women, that they are outraged and want to be a part of the solution. I think its great that we critique men who are abusive and hold them accountable for their actions.

      • Ceire says:

        “I think its great that we critique men who are abusive and hold them accountable for their actions.“

        Agreed, but why do we have to take it several steps further and assure men that we know they’re not all perverts? Why should they receive such babying? I think #NotAllMen IS akin to #AllLivesMatter – both are redundant statements that derail the original point.

      • Umyeah says:

        Because we need men as our allies in this fight and i think its important to distinguish between our abusers and our allies. “Why do we need to take it one step further and assure men that we know they’re not all perverts” because they all arent perverts. How sad would the world be if they all were perverts?

      • Ceire says:

        Agree to disagree. I think it’s ridiculous to applaud men for not being perverts. True allies won’t require praise, or singling out, or acknowledgment of their specialness. They’ll simply be allies to the women in their lives.

        I don’t require someone to add Not All White People in discussions on race in order to try to be a good ally. That validation is a waste of oxygen. Let’s discuss the issues at hand – race or gender – without pausing every few seconds to assure the fragile that they’re special.

    Is that bow on Hayek’s dress real? My first glance registered a sort of cartoon tromp l’oeil and I can’t unsee it lol!

    • LizLemonGotMarried says:

      I had to zoom in closely and compare pictures, but I think it’s incorporated into the dress as opposed to a separate element.

  5. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    I love the whimsical feature on the ribbon design-the black liner makes it look sort of fun and cartoon-like. The dress itself is gorgeous and flattering, and the ribbon elevates it a bit more.

    For Salma…the color…DIVINE! The length…PERFECT…the bottom half…WONDERFUL…they just…didn’t…get…the top fitted correctly, which I know is ALWAYS an issue for her…because I too have very FULL breast that are no friend to high fashion…and I wish she had a more sculpted hairstyle…perhaps with it all going to the side…Hammer…I can’t with him…and that brown does HIM no favors…Everytime I see Gary Oldman…he breaks my heart…I just turned 50 and I’ve been loving him since I was 15 years old…have seen EVERYTHING that he has ever played in or directed…heck, even got a signed copy of the book “Prick Up Your Ears” back in the day…the fact that he’s turned out to be a racist POS…Man…

  7. Ginger says:

    Something about Salma’s face looks oddly puffy…am I the only one who sees it?

  8. Rosey says:

    Love Gal’s dress, it’s just a pity it is not a different color. Hate Armie’s whole look. I don’t like Salma’s dress.

  9. bella says:

    Love Gal’s dress as yellow is one of my favorite colors! Salma loos great except for the trompe
    l’oeil belt! weird. Also, I think Jessica’s fashion choices are about 60-40. I don’t love this dress, but that’s because I am not a huge fan of anything lace!

  10. Taxi says:

    Chastain’s dress is horrible. Gal’s is so-so but the color does her no favors. Salma is rarely well-dressed & isn’t as bad here as she often is. She doesn’t dress for her body type & her clothes rarely fit properly.
