A little cult-classic called “From Dusk ‘til Dawn” was released and millions of 90s hearts began to race. Who was she? She was none other than Salma Hayek… Rodriguez and Tarantino‘s Mexican muse who was set to become not only a Hollywood star but the richest actress in Hollywood.

Salma’s been doing fine on her own for many years, but it may amuse you to know that she finally settled down with Francois-Henri Pinault, who happens to be a French billionaire.  Oh, that’s him on the right.  So why not rock that leather hat?

Here’s a sunny number from last year’s SAG Awards.  This is what we love about our Salma.  She’s not afraid to zig when everyone else zags.  Look at this one: the flower, the ruffles, the length, the…belt…thingy.  Beautiful!

Did you think Salma could never go a little goth?  You were mistaken.  Salma strutted the red carpet at the 2017 Oscars in this knockout Alexandre McQueen gown.  Need you be reminded that she was around 50 years old when this pic was taken?  Yes, you indeed need be.

Here’s Salma showing off what she’s got.  And boy, she’s really got the goods.  That diamond pendant necklace must have cost a pretty penny!  Good thing our girl works so much and gets that money!

The perks of being married to a billionaire that owns luxury brands such as Gucci is that you get to wear any look you want out of the runway. The question is… where can I find a husband like that?

10. Silver Shimmer

It was no surprise when Salma arrived at Cannes Film Festival wearing a plunging neckline in this black sequin custom-made Gucci gown.

14. Perfect Pink

There are two good reasons to love this look.  First, the bold color choice.  No wimpy pink here, and yet she’s not overdoing with “hot” pink.  And second, that beautiful hair clip.  Retro, but also timeless, you know?

 15. Blinding Sequin

Salma wore this dress at an event honoring Geroge Lucas, and you have to hand it to her for her sense of occasion.  Can’t you just hear her telling her stylist, give me 70s disco robot!

Selma never disappoints! She stopped the show when she arrived at the 2016 Gucci Spring show wearing this super tight yellow sweater with a brown skirt.

For this Cannes red carpet event, Salma made two statements.  The first is a red leather Gucci dress.  But you may have missed that on account of the red floral boa thingy she’s wearing around her shoulders.  What?  You clicked on a list of bold looks.  This is bold… and amazing!

20. Mexican Star

Before Hollywood, she was a soap opera star back in Mexico who also played the lead role on one of Mexico‘s most awarded movies in history “El Callejón de los Milagros“.

21. All Hail the Queen

Tale of Tales is a MUST watch for every Fantasy film lover or fashion design student. Salma‘s wardrobe is so impeccable it‘s worthy of the real Queen of Versailles. If you watch this movie I‘m sure you‘ll end up screaming YASSS QUEEN to the TV screen.

22. Savage Look

Did you guys see “Savages” from a few years ago?  Okay, not the best movie.  But Salma?  Dios mio! She was great in it, scary, bad female.  She should play the bad guy more often, for real.

I wonder… does she have Gucci‘s design team on speed dial? Seems to be because here‘s Salma rocking another custom-made Gucci gown at the Fashion Awards in London.

As you’ve seen for more than a dozen clicks, Salma is never afraid to flaunt it.  Here’s she’s showing all she’s got.  That beautiful head of hair!  Here in a very classy and understated bun.

26. Bold as Beatriz

Make no mistake, when you’re as famous as Salma Hayek is, dressing down is as bold as dressing up.  And making movies as thought-provoking and controversial as Beatriz at Dinner is even more so.  Keep it up, Salma!

27. Pink Do

Salma took this look and made it her own.  Kylie Jenner?  Flick of the finger.  Gwen Stefani?  So 2001.  Trust Salma when you want to trot out a novelty hair color.  She’s a pro.

28. Lethal Purple

Salma is into her third decade of being a red carpet staple.  And with so much to show off, why not?  Somebody’s gotta look this good.

29. Frida

We would argue that Salma’s all-time boldest look was this one.  Playing celebrated Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, Salma proved the neigh-sayers wrong, took on Harvey Weinstein, and even got an Oscar nomination.  She also made Frida a thousand times more popular, the world over.  That’s pretty bold.

Salma Hayek Took Photos Of Herself Getting Swallowed By A Wave And Everyone Is Concerned For

Salma Hayek’s Hot Girl Summer is officially OTT. The Mexican-American actress has taken the viral vibe (take notes: it’s a mindset, not a lifestyle) to a completely different dimension in her latest Instagram post which has left concerned onlookers with hundreds of questions.

In a recent post to her Instagram account, the actress is 1. raising questions about how waves should be used and 2. sending me on the hunt for a lavender bathing suit.

Now that you’re caught up, are you ready for a deep dive into Hayek’s recent post?

Giphy.com

Let’s do this!

So Hayek posted a slideshow of pictures to her Instagram that channel a one-woman take on iconic film scenes.

In a caption for the post, Hayek wrote that “Sometimes you just need to surrender and let the waters move and embrace you. A veces hay que dejarse ir y dejar que las aguas te muevan y te abracen. #waves.”

The caption alone raises a TON of questions. For instance, what does Salma feel like she needs to surrender to? Perhaps it’s her deep desire to appear in a classic film so she can reenact an icon scene?

You know the scenes we’re talking about.

The extremely ~sexUAL~ one in “From Here To Eternity.”

Which inspired a not quite as sexual scene in “Grease.”

The photos also show Salma in the pretty cute lavender bathing suit she has been posting about nearly all of August

Here Salma is in the bathing suit in its most recent appearance.

And here Salma is wearing the suit earlier in the month.

This was posted on AUGUST 13.

Salma Hayek wore a lavender bathing suit to the beach so I wore a lavender bathing suit.

This was posted to Salma’s account on August 7th with the hashtag #water #agua. It’s cute, figure-hugging and makes her look like a goddess on the beach.

But back to the Real Business of the matter:

Salma’s pseudo drowning pic posted this week which gives us all kinds of emo vibes.

salmahayek / Instagram

It has most of us confused about whether or not she’s okay? Or, if she’s on a different level than the rest of us and is actually pretty tight.

And because Instagram, naturally, is a place to ask real questions about celebrities and their daily celebrity doings we felt pretty validated that others have questions too.

For example:

landopolo asks the question “Oh no baby what is you doin” in a comment of the post made on a post of the images by @officialseanpenn, an account which also wanted to know if Hayek needed a lifeguard.

And this one: “is she okay” – by concerned user ava_royale

And this comment by “Corpse goals😍” by therealgenevievetho.

Hayek also did an extreme close up of herself being nearly damn swallowed by a wave.

salmahayek / Instagram

To which I repeat the wise words of Instagram user landopolo “Oh no baby what is you doin.”

It’s okay though, she pops up for breath pretty soon after.

And that’s on that on Salma Hayek must be trolling us news.

In our next episode, we’ll be chatting about Hayek’s newly changed bio which has been changed to a bunch of emojis.

Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie Becomes Marvel’s First Bisexual Superhero And It’s About Damn Time

Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie Becomes Marvel’s First Bisexual Superhero And It’s About Damn Time

Over the weekend, at Comic-Con in San Diego, our queen Tessa Thompson dropped some huge news about Valkyrie –– the character she plays in the Thor films. Are you ready?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe will get its first LGBTQ superhero in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder

“First of all, as new King  [of Asgard], she needs to find her queen,” Thompson said during a panel at Comic-Con. “So that will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted.”

Thompson alluding to the LGBTQ storyline was met with roaring applause and left many MCU fans wondering about her role as Valkyrie. Marvel president confirmed Thompson’s statement, making Valkyrie the first openly LGBTQ superhero in MCU history. 

“The answer is yes,” Feige told io9 of the LGBTQ character and storyline. “How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation you’ll see across our films, not in just Thor 4.” 

For diehard MCU fans, this should come as no surprise because the comic books depict Valkyrie as bisexual.

However, the films were notorious for only glossing over this backstory and simply flirting with the fact that Thompson’s Valkyrie is bisexual. 

“In the canon, [Valkyrie] is bisexual. You see her with women and men, so that was my intention in playing her,” Thompson told Variety earlier this year. “Obviously, at the forefront of most of these stories is not typically their romantic life. They have big stakes, like saving the world, so that tends to sort of trump.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, it’s also important to emphasize the fact that Valkyrie is the first “openly” LGBTQ superhero

“The ‘openly’ matters when it comes to visibility. Valkyrie in the comics is bisexual and Thompson has been vocal about that fact on social media. However, when it came to Thor: Ragnarok, a scene was cut in which a woman would’ve been seen sneaking out of Valkyrie’s bedroom and the film, instead, flirted with sexual tension between Valkyrie and Hemsworth’s Thor,” writes Nick Romano for Entertainment Weekly

Aside from Thompson’s Valkyrie becoming MCU’s first openly bisexual superhero, Marvel made other important announcements showing the latest efforts to diversify their films a lot more.

52-year-old Salma Hayek becomes the first Arab and Mexican actress with a main role in the MCU. It was also announced this weekend at Comic-Con that she’s set to star as Ajak in The Eternals. The Lebanese-Mexican actress will star alongside Angelina Jolie talk about a dynamic duo. 

She announced her latest role in the new Marvel film on Instagram, saying: “I’m so excited to join the Marvel family as Ajak, the mother of all Eternals. It used to be the father of all Eternals, but girls… this is OUR time!!!!!” The film is set to release on November 6, 2020.  

Basically, Lena Waithe summed it up for us. “Captain America is black. Thor is a woman. the new Blade got two Oscars. 007 is a black woman. And The Little Mermaid bout to have locs. Shit. Just. Got. Real,” she tweeted. 

In case you missed it, in Avengers: Endgame, Thor passed down the mantle of King of New Asgard to Valkyrie. Now, in Marvel’s Phase Four lineup, we’ll follow her journey as King in Thor: Love and Thunder. The latest Thor installment will also see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster to wield Mjolnir. Although it won’t hit theaters until November 2021, these latest teases and updates are enough to hold us over. 

Of course, Twitter went wild with the news that Thompson becomes the first LGBTQ superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last year in a profile from Net-a-Porter, published toward the end of Pride Month, Thompson also subtly came out and put rumors to rest surrounding her sexuality. “I can take things for granted because of my family –– it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have a discussion.” 

And don’t think for a minute that any of us missed the big MCU switch up.

The new movies are set to be packed with a whole lot of women.

And literally, everyone has an idea of who Valkyrie’s queen will be.

Literally, we’ve been stanning this relationship for too long.

We can’t wait to see Thompson’s Valkyrie also have that type of freedom in the upcoming Thor movie –– especially given the fact that there’s been a lack of LGBTQ representation in comic book movies. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Joe Russo portrayed the first openly gay character in the MCU with his appearance in Endgame and Zach Barack became the first trans actor to appear in a Marvel movie (Spider-Man: Far From Home). 

It’s about time for this long-overdue representation.

Oh, and who will play Thompson’s queen? We can’t wait to find out.
