Salma Hayek Lights Up the Red Carpet in a Neon Yellow Dress and Patent Leather Ankle Boots at BFI London Film Festival

Dressed in bold colors, Salma Hayek attended the London premiere of “Bardo, False Chronicle Of A Handle Of Truths” at the 66th BFI London Film Festival today.

Standing apart from the crowed, Hayek wore a neon yellow midi Bottega Veneta dress with a high neckline and a pleated skirt. Much like a scarf, the top half of “From Dusk Till Dawn” actress’ gown was wrapped around her neck and tipped with long fringe that created textural interest. Overtop the neon wears, Hayek wore a cropped black jacket with cuffed long sleeves.

On her feet, the Mexican-American thespian wore sharp black patent leather ankle boots with pointed toes. A go-to shoe style for many, ankle boots are extremely versatile shoes that can feature a variety of heel styles. Boots that stop at the ankle can be practical, dressy, casual, minimal, showy and more. Chelsea boots, combat boots and booties are all types of ankle boots.

When in doubt, Hayek seems to gravitate towards a few sleek and versatile styles. Known for her penchant for sharp heels and statement-making styles, the actress often dons platform pumps and sandals from Gucci, as a muse to designer Alessandro Michele.

Beyond that, she has also worn towering heels from the likes of Christian Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti over the years. Whether she’s dancing in platform Balenciaga sneakers or sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, Hayek always makes a stunning fashion statement.
