Salma Hayek Pinault Wore a Leather Jacket as a Skirt at the 2023 Brit Awards—See Pics
Salma Hayek Pinault reinvented the leather jacket at the 2023 Brit Awards.
On February 11, the 56-year-old Glamour cover star hit the London red carpet wearing an Alexander McQueen dress with a form-fitting bustier and skirt designed to appear like a repurposed moto jacket. Stylist Kate Williams paired the dress with fishnet stockings and high-heeled YSL combat boots, topping off the ensemble with a knotted choker by Boucheron.
Hayek Pinault’s makeup look by Rebecca Corbin-Murray was equally badass, complete with a dramatic black smokey eye, glowing rosy cheeks, and a mauve lip. The Magic Mike’s Last Dance star hair was left down in bouncy waves for a touch of softness.
Hayek Pinault was clearly having a blast on the carpet, especially when she was joined by her husband, 60-year-old French businessman François-Henri Pinault, with whom she shared a sweet kiss. The chairman and CEO of Kering wore a fitted velvet suit jacket over a turtleneck with classic black trousers and dress boots.
Salma Hayek Pinault has been married to François-Henri Pinault since 2009, though she recently told Glamour that her Valentine’s Day courthouse wedding was a complete surprise. “I didn’t even know I was getting married that day,” she said during her cover interview. “It was like an intervention. I don’t think I ever told this story. No, they just took me to the court. My parents, my brother, they were all ganging up on me. I had a phobia of the marriage thing.”
“I was nervous,” she continued after explaining that she was “dragged” to the courthouse. “And then, after, there was a lunch at his parents’ house. My mother-in-law, who’s the most tasteful person when it comes to entertaining, had already been doing the lunch. I had no choice.”
Luckily, it all worked out in the end. “Afterward I said, ‘Oh, it’s okay. I don’t feel any different,’” Hayek Pinault added. “And then a little bit later I said, ‘Okay, this is kind of exciting.’ And [François was] like, ‘Can we have a party now?’”
After 14 years of marriage, Hayek advises couples to embrace simplicity. “Boredom is underestimated,” she said. “I didn’t understand this for a long time. Also, it helps that we met each other later in our lives. It’s okay just to do nothing and be together; sometimes sharing a space and doing your own thing in silence, with connectivity and thoughtfulness—‘Can I bring you a cup of tea?’—is enough. It’s little simple things.”
