Salma Hayek is one of the most successful and gorgeous actresses on the planet, but she actually led a rather humble life in her native Mexico before becoming famous. Having worked on her craft since the age of 18, Hayek's passion for acting eventually propelled her into the entertainment stratosphere in the ‘90s.

Throughout her career, Hayek has been known for being one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, and that hasn’t changed, even as she entered her 50s. The gorgeous star is still as radiant and ravishing as she was in her younger years while also exuding strength, wisdom, maturity, and grace. The 56-year-old actress is still also in incredible shape and still attracts new fans through her work, past and present.

Hayek was best known for playing the beguiling love interest in films such as “Desperado,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” and “Wild Wild West,” but won critical acclaim for her dramatic turn in 2002’s “Frida.” She proved she was more than just a pretty face, nabbing award wins and nominations for her portrayal of Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo.

Not only is Hayek an accomplished actress, but she is a fashion icon and a trendsetter, too. Dressed by some of the biggest luxury brands and clothing lines in the world, Hayek's stunning beauty and physique have made her a show-stopping force at red-carpet events and premieres. 

At the 2023 Oscars, Hayek strutted the champagne carpet with her beautiful daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, who, like her, rocked a red outfit. Turns out, the dress, which might be familiar to some, was actually something that Hayek had worn before!

Read on to learn more about Valentina and the history of her dress that her mother also wore years ago.

Sharing the same birthday month as her mom, Hayek's daughter, Valentina, was born on Sep. 21, 2007. As with the children of many high-profile celebrities, Valentina rarely makes appearances on her mom's Instagram, Hayek preferring instead to keep her underage child out of the public eye, as per HELLO! Magazine

But for Valentina's birthday in September 2022, the "Grown Ups" star took to her favorite social networking site to commemorate her only child entering her teenage years by sharing throwback photos. She shared one photo of her late into her pregnancy and one of her carrying Valentina as a newborn. 

"Tomorrow the tiny baby that formed inside my womb officially becomes a teen. They grow so fast," she captioned the first picture with a translation in Spanish. 

In the second photo, posted on the day of Valentina's 13th birthday, Hayek is seen carrying her newborn daughter while looking out the window. Both dressed in white, the mother and daughter looked angelic. 

The award-winning actress opened up about their mother-daughter dynamic in Vogue Mexico in 2022. 

"We fight over clothes because she takes everything from my closet," Hayek said, adding, "Since she was little she never let me choose her clothes, and I always liked that… she's very good with makeup. I'm good at makeup, but now she teaches me." 

In another interview with HOLA!, Hayek revealed that although they are not very similar personality-wise, Valentina seemed to inherit her innate ability to be confident in front of the camera. 

“In my family, everyone is very confident, graceful and light. Valentina and I are the ones who panic on stage. But she gets in front of the camera with no problem!”

Hayek loves her daughter very much and also looks up to her as well. As many children of stars do, Valentina wants to make an impact on big screens too. Trying to follow in her mother's footsteps, Valentina dreams of being an actress before eventually becoming a world-famous director.

Valentina, 15, in a rare appearance with her mother, stunned everyone when she appeared to be “twinning” with her on the champagne carpet at the 2023 Oscars, which is a dream come true event for any person hoping to become a filmmaker or an actor in the future. 

To make her first Oscars event more special, her mother’s team pulled out a special dress from the box. 

In an Instagram post by Rebecca Corbin-Murray, Hayek’s stylist, she revealed that the dress that Valentina wore was actually an outfit that the “Eternals” actress wore back then at the 1997 Fire and Ice Ball, ten years before her daughter was actually born. 

“We pulled this beautiful Isaac Mizrahi dress for Valentina from Salma’s archive. Swipe to see when Salma originally wore it in 1997,” she said in the caption

Valentina partnered her vintage dress with a skinny silver necklace and a metallic mini Gucci Jackie 1961 bag, British Vogue reported. 

On the other hand, Hayek is a testament that her beauty is timeless. At 56, the actress was dressed in a bombshell red Gucci dress, one of her favorite fashion houses, glistening with red copper sequins. 

Hayek’s 2022 film, “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” was nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at the 2023 Oscars Awards. She reprised her role as Kitty Softpaws opposite Antonio Banderas’ Puss in Boots.
