Selma Hayek is gorgeous. Like, she's a huge girl-crush of mine and one of the only women I can think of who could totally turn me gay. Normally, her fashion choices are excellent but last night she really lost me.

This dress has several problems - I'm not a fan of the waist bow (or bows in general really - they're a little too cutesy for me most of the time); the front pleats are making her look wide-hipped which is patently ridiculous; the graduated color palette is not working here. But the worst offense is that it cuts her in exactly the worst place on her leg making her look unbelievably short and stumpy. She must not have had a full-length mirror available to her or surely she would have vetoed this get-up. Right?
