Salma Hayek has appeared on Allure September 2011 issue cover looking gorgeous on the shots by Mario Testino. Hayek has donned a cashmere top by Stella McCartney and Yves Saint Laurent skirt and cardigan for the shoot. The stylists wanted to give their cover lady a Brigitte Bardot kind of look making a few waves to the hair and putting accent on the eyes. Salma Hayek looks great on the cover though I do like a close-up shot of her (below) more.
In the interview with Allure Hayek talked beauty, her roles and privileged life:
On beauty and aging: “I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. But not by becoming overly surgified by celebrity dermatologists. It’s like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”
On her nude scene in Desperado: “I’m not an exhibitionist. It was the first time, so it was very difficult.”
Salma Hayek also told Allure that she has been teased when she was young living in Mexico “because I was too short, or I was too brown”. “You would think in Mexico that would be something normal, but I did get teased,” said actress.
On her beauty line Nuance launched at CVS in summer: “I’m [creating this line] with the philosophy that within you there is beauty, and you have to learn how to find it and enhance it in a natural way…. One thing that is exciting about being a woman is that you can rediscover your beauty over and over and over.”
