Salma Hayek is known for her va-va-voom red carpet moments, but it’s not her stylist she consults with before picking her showstoppers — it’s her husband.

“I don’t give my husband style advice,” Hayek tells InStyle. “He gives it to me. He has a good eye for aesthetics, for architecture, art, furniture, watches — he just has great taste.” (Her husband, of course, is Fran├žois-Henri Pinault, CEO of Paris-based fashion conglomerate PPR, whose labels include YSL, Gucci and many others.)

The Savages┬ástar, who covers the magazine’s July issue, also believes in playing with clothes. “When it comes to fashion, I just go with the flow,” she reveals. “You have to work with what’s available — like your body — but sometimes it’s good to take chances.”

Hayek is known for her signature bombshell style, something she embraces. “A lot of very strong women have a signature look,” she admits. “They find a character for themselves and are very consistent with it.”

And though we’re used to seeing the actress in her curve-hugging dresses and sky-high heels, she could do without the latter. “I tell you, I suffer!” she jokes. “Sometimes I wear [heels] and I’m like ‘Oh my God, what was I thinking?!'” For more with Hayek, pick up the July issue of InStyle, on newsstands Friday.

It would be much better if Salma Hayek would stop thinking about this trivial nonsense and start paying attention to something that is far more important. Her husband has a very serious character flaw because he abandoned his son with Linda Evangelista and Pinault gives me the impression that he may be a sociopath. Nobody should ever abandon a child and Salma Hayek should not be with this guy at all. She should divorce him as soon as possible.
