Salma Hayek always knows how to put a unique spin on things. The 53-year-old actress opted out of flaunting her bikini body in the traditional way on Sunday, instead opting for a racy, animal-print finish to her swimwear. The “Frida” actress’ fans will adore her whether she’s barely-clothed or covered-up, though, appearing to do just this as Salma posted four collage photos of herself in a black two-piece covered by a leopard-print outer layer.
Check out the look from Salma below.
Salma’s photos showed her looking carefree and beautiful as she posed on a wooden porch and near floor-to-ceiling windows. The reflection showed an ocean view with palms, although the actress opted out of offering a geo-tag.
Salma herself was looking sensational. The brunette was sweeping her floor-length and leopard-print duster around her, quickly flashing her legs in one shot and also offering hints of her bikini body via the duster’s semi-sheer fabrics. A black bathing suit was worn beneath the duster.
“Go with the flow and fly with the wind ? have a lovely Sunday ? déjate llevar y vuela con el viento ? que tengan un hermoso Domingo ? #mood #wind,” Salma added as her caption.
Comments and likes came in quickly, with the latter sitting at over 468,000 by the time the post was a day old. Celebrity likes also came in from “Friends” alum Jennifer Aniston and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna.
Fans were loving it.
“Gorgeous,” one wrote.
“Love animal prints an suits u,” another added with a fire emoji.
“Cougar prints!” a fan wrote, hinting at the star’s age, although fans would likely agree that Salma is more than defying her 53 years.
Salma, of course, remains famous for having celebrated her 53rd birthday in a statement turquoise bikini on the beach.
Positive responses aren’t a guarantee on celebrity Instagram – Ariel Winter’s see-through and underwear-style dress more than proved this recently, with backlash on Salma’s recent swimsuit photo also bringing in a little negativity as a fan accused the star of using “too much botox.”
“Too much Botox :(. Not needed Salma!” they wrote.
Salma personally replied.
“I don’t have Botox But thank you for the advice because I was thinking maybe it’s time.”
Salma appears to be embracing her age. A few years ago, Salma also spoke out about not dying her hair.
Back when she was 50, Salma was profiled by British health club Holmes Place.
“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.
The actress then made headlines in 2019 for showing off her natural gray hair.
