Salma Hayek: My Husband Loves When I Wear Leather

Get ready to have your minds blown, StyleWatchers. Salma Hayek is… 47! Now, once you pick your jaws off the floor, check out how amazing the actress looks on the July cover of InStyle magazine, where she opens up about dressing to impress her French husband, François-Henri Pinault.

“I actually wear a lot of leather on the red carpet,” the actress (who’s wearing a scarlet St. Laurent dress on the cover) shares. “My husband loves when I wear it.” (We bet François really loved when his wife stepped out in this Bottega Venetta leather dress last week!)

Hayek also reveals that even though she’s in her forties, there are certain styles she won’t give up.

“When I turned 40, I started thinking, ‘This is the last year,’ whenever I’d wear a strapless dress,” she says. “I always thought you can’t wear them after a certain age, but I’m still getting away with it.”

And despite all the haute couture looks she’s stepped out in over the years, the hot Hollywood mom isn’t looking for validation from the fashion community, just her husband.

“I’m not really a fashionista,” she shares. “I have an eye. I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband, because I want him to be attracted to me.”

For more from Hayek, check out and the July issue, on stands June 14, and tell us: What do you think of her fashion outlook?

She is wearing those leather only to ” please ” her billionare husband?!! Don’t forget how many children he fathered.

I love that she says it’s mostly for her husband. In marriage we tend to forget to make an effort to please our spouse, and only concentrate on how we want our spouse to please us. Bravo to her for looking out for her man :)

Why does she need to wear leather to please anyone? She is her own woman and she should please herself.

She is gorgeous. No one would look at her husband twice if he weren’t a billionaire.

She is a really beautiful woman and embraces a woman’s figure. There is something about her I very much like.

What I don’t like is her husband and I need a brainwash just thinking about the fact that he just doesn’t seem to be the sort I would want a best friend to marry.

Salma isn’t my best friend but it stands all the same.

Its so sad that he is a known cheater. Like someone said, no one would look at him twice if he were not wealthy.
