Salma Hayek is more glamorous than ever. The actress hit the blue carpet at the UK premiere of her new film “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” wearing an extra-tall pair of platform heels.

For the movie’s premiere, Hayek donned a chic white midi skirt and sheer black-and-white polka dot blouse. Her accessories were minimal, taking the form of a single pearl ring alongside her diamond wedding band. In a clever styling trick, the actress matched the event’s decor with a bold blue eyeliner, framed by breezy straightened locks.

Hayek’s shoe choice, however, marked her return to her signature platform sandals. The actress previously performed a dance challenge for “Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife,” where she swapped her ultra-glam ensembles for black loungewear and a pair of Balenciaga’a chunky Triple S sneakers. Though the Triple S is known for providing an extra height boost, Hayek’s a pro at wearing tall shoes. The towering premiere sandals proved that if anyone can rock a pair of 6-inch platforms on the step-and-repeat, it’s her. Though the actress’s pair was unidentified, a similar pair of Gucci heels retails for $1,100 on Net-A-Porter.com.

Hayek’s known for wearing high-fashion outfits in a range of prints, textures and colors. The actress can frequently be spotted in Gucci’s maximalist dresses, suits, blouses and skirts, as a muse for designer Alessandro Michele. It’s also worth noting that the “Frida” star is almost always in heels. Her favorites are the Italian house’s strappy 6-inch platforms or pointed-toe pumps, though she’s been seen in sparkly sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti and Saint Laurent as well.

The actress recently showed off her dance moves on Instagram to promote “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” in the aforementioned Triple S sneakers. In the clip, Hayek grooved to “…Baby One More Time,” by fellow dancing queen Britney Spears, alongside her makeup and hair team. The clip was part of a new online dance challenge for the film, a sequel to 2017’s “The Hitman’s Bodyguard,” which comes out today.
