What did quality time with your mum look like for you at 14? For Valentina Paloma Pinault, teenage daughter of Salma Hayek, it’s a girls’ day out at the Balenciaga fall/winter 2022 show in Paris.
Salma was joined by Valentina and her stepdaughter, Mathilde Pinault, at Demna’s epic presentation, which saw models struggling their way through a manufactured blizzard on the runway. Originally conceived as a comment on climate catastrophe, the show became a message to Ukraine from the Georgian designer, who was forced to flee his native Abkhazia with his family as a 10-year-old.

Salma and Valentina wore coordinating black for the show (don’t think we didn’t spot V’s Le Cagole shoulder bag), with Hayek throwing an oversized powder-blue shirt over her slinky roll-neck and slip skirt combo.
After the show the House of Gucci star, an unofficial swimwear influencer who managed to upstage even Lady Gaga’s high-fashion marathon while promoting the film with a single pool snap, swapped her look for the colours of the Ukrainian flag. Blue and yellow T-shirts had been placed on guests’ seats ahead of the show, and Salma wore hers to pose for an Instagram snap with another fashion mum, Kim Kardashian, who attended wrapped in Demna’s answer to police tape (Balenciaga-branded, of course). Just another day at Paris Fashion Week.

Gucci Product Searches Spike After “House of Gucci” Film Release

MANY HAPPY RETURNS: It looks like the eagerly-awaited “House of Gucci” will be bringing in more than box-office returns this holiday season. Cash registers should be ringing at Gucci as data showed a spike in searches for its handbags and clothes, coinciding with the film’s worldwide release this week.Fashion e-commerce aggregator Lovethesales.com reported on Friday that there was a 257 percent jump in searches for Gucci bags compared to the prior week, while searches for Gucci clothes rose 73 percent. Interest in Gucci slides, meanwhile, was up 75 percent week-on-week, it said.
The ripple effect is not unexpected. Claire Roblet, director of financial communications and market intelligence at Gucci’s parent company Kering, predicted in a conference call with financial analysts in October that the release of Ridley Scott’s movie would have a “halo effect” on the brand.

The film includes a protracted shopping scene, and features several actors closely associated with the house.
Salma Hayek, wife of Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault, plays a psychic, while Gucci brand ambassador Jared Leto, who appeared in its recent runway show staged on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, stars as Paolo Gucci, one of the grandsons of founder Guccio Gucci.

Lady Gaga, who plays Patrizia Reggiani, the Italian socialite convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, has worn several outfits designed by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele for the “House of Gucci” press tour and premieres this month, further driving interest in the brand.
Gucci has also dressed Hayek and Leto for several red carpet events. The brand promoted the film this week with an Instagram post highlighting its loan of archival pieces to costume designer Janty Yates.
Gucci is not the only house that stands to benefit from the film. Lovethesales.com also reported a 245 percent jump in searches for pinstriped suits, fueled by the men’s looks featured in the movie, provided by another legendary Italian label, Ermenegildo Zegna.

After giving us a series of noteworthy films over her career—from Fools Rush In (1997) and Frida (2002) to Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) and Eternals (2021), Salma Hayek Pinault has been honored with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Los Angeles. The 55-year-old star, who comes from Lebanese and Mexican roots, unveiled her name on Friday, November 19, and was joined by Grown Ups co-star Adam Sandler, director Chloé Zhao and the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti.

For her special afternoon, Hayek Pinault stepped out in a not-so-basic LBD, proving that classics can be revamped for just about any occasion. The star opted for a custom-made ebony creation by Alexander McQueen which came with a corset-style bodice and parachute skirt. The midi was layered with a cropped jacket featuring crystal raindrop embroidery, which matched the embellishment on her dress. To complete her ensemble, Salma Hayek Pinault went with another classic—black pumps. The actor’s glossy ombré locks were styled in romantic waves, and her beauty look was completed with a soft smoky eye and cherry lips.
For Hayek Pinault, receiving a Hollywood star wasn’t just a moment of deep honor, but also a chance for her to share her experiences within the industry with fans. The actor opened up about facing racism, recalling a time when a studio asked her, “Why don’t you go back to the (Mexican) telenovelas? You’ll never find a job here.” At the time, the actor remembers also telling herself, “Nobody wants me here. They want me in my country.” Today, however, her advice is one to remember: “Try to be better. Try to find the joy in what you do. Work hard. Prepare. Don’t care what anybody says. But most importantly, don’t listen to yourself when you bring yourself down.”
Currently celebrating the success of Eternals, Salma Hayek Pinault will next be seen in House of Gucci, which also stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Jared Leto.
