Salma Hayek delivered a lesson in festive glamour as she sashayed down the red carpet in an incredible figure-hugging red dress at an A-list event in London last night.

The Frida actor, 56, ensured all eyes were on her as she arrived for the GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel on Wednesday evening.

Looking sensational in a plunging off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood corset dress in a deep scarlet hue, Hayek ramped up the glam in an outfit that had the perfect blend of elegance and seduction.

As well as Westwood's trademark corset, the floor-skimming dress featured a deep neckline and bow detail which drew attention to the star's covetable curves.

Keeping her accessories simple with a pair of purple and diamond drop earrings, the star also opted for understated styling when it came to her hair and make-up.

Her brunette tresses were left down in loose waves, while the House of Gucci actor went for a sweep of eyeliner for a touch of vamp.

Hayek is regularly praised by fans for her feel-good and unashamed age-defying style, which regularly sees her top best dressed lists and has seen her become a swimwear aficionado.

As well as regularly sharing body-confident bikini selfies to her social media feeds, the actor also embraces daring silhouettes when making high-profile appearances at award ceremonies and red carpet events.

Hayek's bold, vamp-ish and often trailblazing style developed in the 90s as a result of her being shunned by more traditional luxury brands. “I had trouble getting clothes, and I couldn’t afford it on my own,” she told Vogue in 2020.

“The other girls were getting people to lend them clothes, but nobody thought a Mexican was going to stick around, so why give me a dress? Things have changed a lot since then.”

Earlier this year she appeared looking youthful on the cover of Vogue with her teenage daughter and mini me Valentina Pinault.

The actor and her 14-year-old daughter posed side-by-side for the May 2022 issue of Vogue Mexico and Latin America, showing off an impressive set of shared genetics.

For the Vogue Mexico and Latin America cover shoot, photographed by Nico Bustos and styled by Vale Collado, the mother and daughter duo don designer clothes.

Pinault also admits to raiding her mother's red carpet wardrobe from time to time, though she insisted she’s equally as comfortable wearing sweatpants.

“We fight over clothes because she takes everything from my closet,” Hayek told Irena Azuela. “Since she was little she never let me choose her clothes, and I always liked that.”
