Salma Hayek Balances Out Her Logo-Coated Silk Dress With Classic Black Mules

Salma Hayek is proof that all-logo-everything can work — with proper styling.

On Sunday, Hayek stepped out her husband François-Henri Pinault, wearing Gucci head-to-toe. Hayek started her ensemble with a cream-colored silk shirt dress that was adorned with the Italian fashion house’s logo and the brand’s signature chain design. Hayek then teamed the look with a black leather top handle bag — also from Gucci.

She also accessorized with oversized sunglasses. As for footwear, Hayek opted for Gucci’s Horsebit mule sandals. The sleek shoes feature black leather uppers and the label’s gold-toned hardware at the front. The shoes are finalized with a block heel.

Hayek’s ensemble provides a perfect styling lesson on wearing logo-printed attire. Typically considered a fashion faux pas, logomania can be a challenge to make work. However, using Hayek’s look as example, you can make the ensembles feel a bit more balanced if they are either of the same color family or neutral tones.

Hayek’s Gucci look comes after she stepped out in a flowing blue dress and trending square toe heels to attend the Balenciaga show during Paris Fashion Week.

The cobalt frock featured a subtle floral design with pleated sleeves and a billowing hem. Hayek paired the number with oversized sunglasses and Balenciaga’s Hourglass handbag in a soothing taupe hue. The silhouette features a study top handle and curved construction.

The label offers a plethora of sizes, shapes and colors at Balenciaga.com. As for footwear, Hayek opted for a pair of heels that are trending big this season: square toe sandals. Hayek’s pair featured a simple strap across the ankle and sat atop a stiletto heel. While trendy, Hayek’s choice of footwear allowed her dress to be the statement of the look.
