Salma Hayek is Coming to Beirut!

Yes all the rumors you heard are true!

The beyond stunning Salma Hayek will be in Beirut on April 27th, 2015 for the world premiere of her new animated movie, “The Prophet”. You read that correctly: the Lebanese capital will be hosting its first EVER world premiere at Beirut Souks’ Cinema City!




The sexy Lebanese-Mexican actress has lent her voice to the movie’s leading character, Kamila and is also the Executive Producer of the picture. Hayek has long been a fan of the Lebanese writer, Gebran Khalil Gebran and is said to have been proud of finally transforming the story from a book to the big screen for the whole world to enjoy!




Aside from Hayek’s impeccable acting skills, the much-loved actress is quite the fashionista and has been so since her early Hollywood days. Salma is always one to watch any time she hits the red carpet and steals the show with the dazzling silhouettes she wears along with the tasteful cleavage she puts on display. Red, black, fushia, and neutrals, Hayek has worn it all. She is also a designer favorite and has worn gowns by Balenciaga and Gucci, to name a few.

There’s no doubt that Salma will bring glitz and glam to Monday night’s red carpet; she will undoubtedly wow us with the gown she chooses to wear. So, just for fun, I’ve rounded up a selection of some of the hottest gowns from Lebanon’s finest designers; who knows, the actress might just choose to wear one of them on the big night!

In case Hayek decides to go for a Lebanese designer, Elie Saab may be on top her list! The world class designer presented a stunning Ready To Wear Spring 2015 collection inspired by the sea. The actress can choose a thigh high slit sky blue design with belt detail, a classic black plunging jumpsuit or a printed low-cut design. Salma can also go for a design from the Spring Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection; just take a look at this stunning Chartereuse confection with a full skirt and impeccable embroidery!

Red has always been a favorite color of the fiery Hayek. At first look, this red jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad might look like business, but the delicate mesh details across the bodice add a little glam to the otherwise subdued design! The breath-taking actress can add sexy waves and a red lip to pump up the look!

Wouldn’t you love to see Salma taking a huge risk thanks to one of Lebanon’s up and coming designers? This iridescent hand embroidered fringed cocktail dress is designed by Rami Kadi, as part of his new Les Illusions Exquises collection and would show off the actress’ toned legs perfectly!





What do you think of my picks? Regardless, there’s no doubt that no matter what Salma Hayek chooses to wear, she will be on my best dressed list!

Red Carpet | And the Oscar for Best Dressed Actress Goes to..

Awards season’s final stop and most important show- the Academy Awards- took place last night in Los Angeles. Hours before the ceremony, celebrities floated on the red carpet in stunning designer gowns and shiney diamonds, but only 5 of them deserve to be on the best dressed list, and here they are!

Jennifer Lawrence 

It only seems fair that Jennifer makes the best dressed list and here’s why: 1) she won the Best Actress Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and 2) she wore a Dior Couture gown that was just featured at Paris Fashion Week! Jennifer’s ivory princess like gown made her the Belle of the ball and her pricey Chopard accessories included  23 carat earrings and a 74 carat necklace worn down her back.

Jessica Chastain

She may have not won last night, but Jessica stunned in a bronze Giorgio Armani gown that looks like it was poured over her body. Perfect old Hollywood waves and Harry Winston diamonds completed her look. Surely enough, her million dollar red lipped smile easily won over the screaming crowd!

Sandra Bullock

Although Sandra was not nominated last night, that didn’t stop her from looking like a winner at the Oscars. Bullock made a stunning entrance in this Elie Saab sheer skirted black gown, Harry Winston sparklers, Swarovski clutch, and Jimmy Choos.

Amy Adams

Looking like her alter ego “Giselle”  from the movie “Enchanted”, Amy Adams floats down the red carpet in this powder blue Oscar De La Renta gown, complete with heavy embroidery on the bodice and a full tulle embellished skirt. Amy finished up her look with possibly the best hairstyle of the night and diamond drop earrings.

Naomi Watts

She may not have won (although she was my personal favorite), but she did it again and landed at number one on the Best Dressed list! Following her winning look at the SAGs, Naomi wore a gunmetal Armani Privé gown fit for royalty and worked this asymmetric neckline while flaunting some sexy yet tasteful cleavage. $1.5 million worth of Neil Lane jewels completed the look and made Naomi shine even brighter!

That’s a wrap for a awards season 2013! Stay tuned for much more!

Red Carpet | Memorable Oscar Fashion!

The wait is over and Oscar night is finally here! For many of us fashion enthusiasts, this night is more about the designer gowns, fancy hair, and drop-dead-gorgeous diamonds rather than who actually wins an award!

So in anticipation of what the stars will bring to the red carpet tonight, here are Oscar’s most memorable gowns ever!

Halle Berry

The most memorable dress of the century! In 2002, nominee Halle Berry stepped on the red carpet in this Elie Saab Couture gown with a sheer bodice and strageically placed embroidery. Lucky for her, she even won the Oscar for “Monster’s Ball” and got to show the dress to the world in her acceptance speech.

Penelope Cruz

Penelope chose a blush colored Atelier Versace gown for the 2007 Academy Awards with a sweeping train. An elegant updo and natural makeup completed the flawless look!


Penelope C


Charlize Theron

To collect her Best Actress award for “Monster”, Charlize wore a nude Gucci gown to the 2004 Academy Awards. The dress fit Charlize like a glove and she managed to look even more Hollywood glam in her retro waves and statement jewelry.


Charlize T


Anne Hathaway

Before chopping off her hair to play “Fantine” in “Les Miserables”, this year’s Best Supporting Actress nominee dazzled on the red carpet in 2008. Her deep red Marchesa chiffon gown with flowers on the bodice and shoulder looked like a piece of art and the train made the look even more dramatic.


Anne H


Julia Roberts

One year before Halle Berry’s legendary Oscar gown, Julia Roberts turned heads when she hit the red carpet wearing Vintage Valentino. The black dress with white accents is the best thing I’ve ever seen Julia in. That night, Julia won Best Actress for her role in “Erin Brokovich” and I’m sure the gown is one of the reasons why she received a standing ovation as she finished her speech!


Julia R


Michelle Williams

Who could forget the canary yellow Vera Wang gown Michelle Williams wore to the 2006 Academy Awards? With the late Heath Ledger on her arm, Michelle was the definition of boho chic in this mustardy color, along with a side swept-do, red lips, and a statement necklace.


Michelle W


Hillary Swank

When Hillary Swank walked the Oscar red carpet in 2005, everyone thought she looked far too conservative. Fast forward a few minutes and Hillary reveals a cutout down to there in the back of her Guy Laroche gown. She also picked up an Academy Award for her stellar performance in “Million Dollar Baby”.


Hillary S


Jennifer Lawrence

In 2011, Jennifer Lawrence was nowhere close to how famous she is today. But that didn’t stop her from knocking it out of the park in this va-va-voom red Calvin Klein gown. This low cut yet simple gown, along with blownout blonde locks put Jennifer on the best dressed list that year!


Jennifer L


Mila Kunis

Wearing lavender in February can be tricky, but Mila was a vision in this chiffon Elie Saab gown at the 2011 ceremony. The delicate lace is placed strategically in all the right places and the ribbon around the waist compliments Mila’s figure perfectly.

That’s it for now, but tune in tomorrow to find out who was best dressed at the 2013 Academy Awards live from Hollywood!
