Salma Hayek is loyal when it comes to honoring Instagram’s Throwback Thursday trend. The “Frida” actress is a regular when it comes to posting old-school snaps using the platform’s weekly hashtag – Salma’s latest post did just this, alongside managing to set Instagram ablaze.
Salma took to Instagram on Thursday with a red hot photo of herself back in the day. The image was ticking boxes for being sun-drenched and curve-flaunting, but much like Salma’s overall vibe, the pic remained tasteful and classy.
Salma’s photo showed her bathed in natural sunlight and posing in profile positioning amid green shrubbery. The garden setting afforded a natural feel, as did Salma’s bronzed skin and peaceful, closed-eye expression.
The outfit was bringing the heat, though. The 53-year-old was flaunting her stunning figure in a blue and barely-there mini dress with a sweeping upper half – fabrics here enhanced the actress’ slender waist, with a backless finish further upping the ante.
Salma had gone braless in her dress, also showcasing toned shoulders and hints of her thighs.
A short caption was all the Mexican star needed.
“#TBT,” she wrote.
There’s a huge amount of love for Salma, and it definitely manifested today. The Latina’s post clocked over 250,000 likes within two hours of going live, also bringing in over 1,600 comments.
“Fire!” one fan wrote.
“What a gorgeous woman,” another said.
“Wow this makes my Thursday, You are just gorgeous,” another said.
One fan asked Salma to “show the turtles” – whether this comment was entering NSFW territory or referring to Salma’s October 2019 bikini snap that came complete with a super-cute turtle wasn’t clarified.
Salma was amid the many celebrities dedicating an Instagram post to basketball legend Kobe Bryant’s death. The 41-year-old was killed last Sunday along with 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others when the helicopter he was traveling in burst into flames.
Salma posted a photo of a chandelier basketball net, writing:
“To the family and friends of John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli, Kobe and Gianna Bryant, Sarah and Payton Chester, Christina Mauser and Ara Zobayan, my most sincere condolences. I hope that in your profound pain, you find the strength to feel the loving embrace and prayers of so many of us around the world.”
Salma is embracing her age. Many fans feel that this star looks way younger than her years, but Salma isn’t one to shy away from being 53. Her 53rd birthday was marked on Instagram last year with a statement bikini snap, and Salma herself has stated that she refuses to dye her hair.
“I don’t dye [my hair] because I am curious to see how I am going to look with this. I am sure in the next movie they will say sorry you will have to dye it but I am enjoying watching them come in. I don’t have any Botox. Maybe later I will change my mind but for now, I am comfortable being fifty. I am comfortable in my own skin,” she said at the time.
