Legendary 56-year-old actor Salma Hayek just rocked one of the most beautiful red gowns we’ve seen all season long.

Whether dancing in a bikini on a sailboat or or wowing with Farrah Fawcett-like curls in a selfie, Salma Hayek knows how to capture our collective attention - and her recent appearance on the red carpet of the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2022 in London is no exception.

The Mexican-American star showed up in a wonderful draped corseted red dress in satin crepe from Vivienne Westwood's made-to-order collection. She finished off her look with a pair of black satin platform heels and pink, floral-shaped drop earrings that looked especially good alongside her natural hair, which she wore down.

Made from a smooth lightweight fabric with a lustrous sheen and featuring a draped neckline that flatters all figures, the dress is the ideal one for a special night out.

The eye-catching celebrity is preparing for the much-anticipated release of Magic Mike's Last Dance, in which she plays protagonist Channing Tatum's love interest. 

Scheduled to hit theaters on February 10, 2023, just in time for Valentine's Day, the third installment of the franchise sees Mike flying to London with a wealthy socialite (Salma!). 

The first trailer for the movie was released just a few days ago and, as fans noted immediately, things are going to heat up on screen. In one particular scene, Salma and Channing are seen getting very close and, of course, busting some really cool dance moves that are sure to entertain all. 

But Salma’s iconic film work and exciting fashion choices aren’t the only reasons she seems to constantly be in the spotlight. Last year, for example, the celebrity made headlines after getting candid on menopause.

Back then, during an appearance on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Salma revealed that she had been dealing with menopause symptoms since her mid-40s. 

"They [the doctors] were asking me things like, 'Are your ears growing, and is there hair growing out of them? Are you growing a mustache and a beard? Are you easily irritable? Are you crying for no reason? Are you gaining a lot of weight really fast that doesn't go away no matter what you do? Are you shrinking?' And then they ask you, 'Is your vagina dry?'," she recalled then.

She went on to discuss the biological event positively, saying that, "there's no expiration date for women."

"You can kick ass at any age," Salma said. "You can hold your own at any age, you can dream at any age, you can be romantic at any age. We have the right to be loved for who we are at the place that we are."

You’re preaching to the choir, Salma!
