Salma Hayek and her daughter, Valentina Pinault, made a rare red carpet appearance together at the 2023 Oscars. While both looked chic in their coordinating outfits, the moment was made even more special by Valentina’s dress choice.

Her Nostalgic Dress

The 15-year-old beauty, who is Salma’s only child with her billionaire husband, François-Henri Pinault, wore a strapless red gown that had a lot of nostalgia attached to it.

The Stylist's Instagram Post

Salma’s stylist, Rebecca Corbin-Murray, shared a photo of the mother-daughter moment on Instagram and revealed the outfit details in the caption.

Isaac Mizrahi Gown From 1997

“We pulled this beautiful Isaac Mizrahi dress for Valentina from Salma’s archive,” she wrote, while also acknowledging the jewelry designer, hairstylist, and makeup artist. Swipe to see when Salma originally wore it in 1997.

She Wore It To The Fire & Ice Ball

In the second slide, the 56-year-old Frida star can be seen wearing the Mizrahi number when she attended the Fire & Ice Ball more than two decades ago.

It's Older Than Valentina

That makes the gorgeous dress a full 10 years older than Valentina!

The Styling Was Beautiful, Too

It has a timeless and elegant design, though, and the teenager pulled it off beautifully. She styled it with a diamond necklace and a silver Gucci bag, along with a wavy blonde hairdo.

How Salma Styled It In 1997

Back in 1997, Salma teamed it with a diamond choker, a purse in a deeper shade of red, and half-up curls.

Her 2023 Oscars Look

At the recently concluded Oscars, meanwhile, the House of Gucci actress looked every inch the Hollywood star in an orange sequin gown by – you guessed it – Gucci.

Sparkling Gucci Look

The dress featured a keyhole cutout, a tinsel-covered skirt, and a curve-hugging silhouette that showed off her famous figure.

One Of The Best Dressed Of The Evening

The star, who presented the Best International Feature Film award and landed on best-dressed lists that evening, topped off her look with a loose center-parted hairstyle with subtle waves.

Special Mother-Daughter Moment

Salma and Valentina made quite the glamorous pair on the Oscars champagne carpet, and it was indeed a special moment considering it’s been almost two years since they last posed together for an A-list event.

Back then, they both opted for black ensembles. Salma chose a peplum gown by Gucci that featured a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit, teamed with gold platform pumps and a velvet clutch.

Valentina In A Saint Laurent Mini Dress

Valentina, meanwhile, went for a cute polka-dot mini dress by Saint Laurent, styled with a quilted leather clutch, sheer tights, and ankle boots.

Why Salma Always Wears Gucci

It’s no coincidence that Salma wears Gucci a lot. Her husband is the chairman and CEO of Kering, which owns Gucci and Saint Laurent, among other luxury brands.

That makes her the unofficial brand ambassador and muse of the iconic Italian fashion house.

Is Valentina The Next Red Carpet Darling?

And if the power couple’s daughter will be hitting more red carpets from here on out, it’s safe to say she’ll be showcasing a lot of high-end looks from Kering’s brands, too.
