Salma Hayek in striped Saint Laurent at the UK ‘Eternals’ premiere: circus-y?

'Eternals' London film premiere - Red Carpet

After skipping all of the Eternals promotion in Italy, Salma Hayek was back for promotion in the UK this week. She attended last night’s premiere/screening with the cast, and like Angelina Jolie, Salma has been bringing her kid to the big events. I kind of think “doing it for their kids” was the reason why both Salma and Angelina signed on to the Eternals. They wanted to do a fun movie which their teens would like to see. Plus, it’s Marvel and very few people say no to Marvel. Anyway, Salma has not been hitting it out of the park sartorially for the Eternals’ promo. She wore this Saint Laurent dress which looks pretty dated and ‘80s. I’m sure that’s “the style” these days, but yikes. Weirdly, this dress made me think of Dakota Johnson and how she gets paid to be a Gucci girl, and she would probably make this look very cool. Valentina is adorable too! She’s only 14 years old.

Someone who has been killing it throughout the promotion? Gemma Chan! Her stylist PREPARED. Her stylist got all the look-books and put together a style story and assembled a world-class glam squad, because Gemma has looked completely gorgeous and badass throughout. In London, she wore this Zuhair Murad “hooded” gown. She looks like she could be in a Star War!

    I actually don’t mind Salma’s dress, but something in the fit seems a little off to me. I think if it was a little more form fitting it would be better? but overall I think I like it. I keep looking at it, lol.

    gemma looks awesome. She has such a presence – I don’t think that many actresses could wear this, between the hood and the high boots and the sheer skirt and the belt there’s a lot going on – but she nails it.

    • Tom says:

      The fit on Salma’s gown is way off. Shoulder is too large, waist is too long and too big, hem is too long.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I’ve been listening to stylists talking about dressing my shape and something they said about the hourglass shape is that things that are fitted to the body (especially around the waist) will always look better than something that is baggy.

      I would like to thank Salma for illustrating that lesson for me with this outfit.

  2. Eurydice says:

    Salma is so beautiful, but she never seems to get the proportions right for her body shape.

    And Gemma, so gorgeous- love most of the outfit, but not the window to her pelvis.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I thought the see-through dress over granny panties style was long gone, but no, here it is again.

  3. Tanguerita says:

    I feel for Salma – she is a tiny woman with huge boobs, and designers really don’t know how to dress women with big breasts. The proportions are off, bodycon is your only option and it often looks porny. Valentina grew into her looks though.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      Short waisted petites with big breasts – a nightmare to dress but her stylist should know how. The waist on this dress isn’t hitting her waist. Such a gorgeous woman, what a shame.

    • Esmerelda says:

      Young Valentina looks soooo French with her little scowl, adorable. She’s naturally elegant.
      Salma is a beauty, but cannot pick dresses that work with her figure, IMHO.

    Kumail is a bit of a snack!

    • dj says:

      @Jane Wilson Kumail is nailing it! I loved him before but now that he is super fit he is more delicious.

  5. Mina_Esq says:

    She isn’t an easy figure to dress, but if anyone can get bespoke designer pieces it is Salma. Why she continues to wear I’ll-fitting gowns designed for slender women without her curves is beyond me. The dress is a disaster.

  6. Janethetrain says:

    What is happening with Richard Maddens suit? It looks like an angry ex girlfriend runs the wedding tux rental shop he had to get this from. So ill fitting for such a basic suit.

    • panthress says:

      @ Janethetrain, with Richard you mean ” it looks like an angry ex boyfriend runs the wedding tux rental shop”. There, I fixed it for you.

  7. EveV says:

    I do not like Salma’s dress, at all. Circus is the best description of it because those stripes are yikes. And Salma could have any look she wanted (I would imagine, at least, with who her husband is). She needs to get a new stylist. Valentina looks very pretty although I hope that was just a bad picture and she is actually happy to be there.

  8. MsIam says:

    This dress is awful. Even the red and black striping is awful. I know that Salma tends to stick to the same style of dress a lot so maybe she wanted to change it up a bit? But this is not it, or maybe if it were in a more drapey fabric and certainly not this glitter pinstripe thing.

  9. Gruey says:

    What in the Kyle Richards hell?? This is unacceptable. As a fellow curvy shorty, this is the absolute worst way to cut a dress for your body!! I am vicariously traumatized.

  10. one of the marys says:

    Haha window to her pelvis, hilarious. The sheer panel ruins the look for me, otherwise it would have been stunning. Barry and Kumail look fantastic, very interesting. Poor Richard didn’t bring it compared to these two

  11. Velvet Elvis says:

    I don’t totally hate the it, but it’s like they shoved her in a dress that would fit her boobs, but didnt alter the fit everywhere else.

  12. Sudie says:

    Gemma is gorgeous! Love most of her look but could have done without the see through panels and her panties showing. I know it’s the style right now but it’s not attractive, of course, I’m an old lady so it may be my age showing.

  13. Annetommy says:

    Like Salma’s dress, though it could be fitted better, hate the hoodie thing, two of the three guys look nice (Madden being a bit spoiled by the cut of the suit).

  14. Monica says:

    That look on Valentina’s face… The face of 14-year-olds with their parents everywhere. 😆

  15. LWT00 says:

    The heel on Barry’s shoe… honey, embrace your height.

    “Poor Richard” is welcome at my house any time.
