A-listers have hit Paris to take in the sights (no, not the Eiffel Tower) at the most highly anticipated shows of the season and their equally covetable spring 2014 runway looks. Fashion Week frequenter Olivia Palermo was spotted at Dior looking her stylish self in mixed prints amid the show’s garden-esque backdrop. At Balenciaga, Salma Hayek (with hubby Francois-Henri Pinault in tow) managed to effortlessly epitomize “Parisian chic” with one look. Click through to see the celebrities — including Gemma Arterton, Lily Collins, and Olga Kurylenko — who are generating all the buzz at Paris Fashion Week from the front row.

The concept of self-love and inner beauty is one that our July cover girl Salma Hayek knows well. “You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best with what you’ve got,” she told InStyle in her July feature. “That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You’ve got to be kind to yourself.” We love her positive attitude, and as the saying goes, when you feel good, it shows on the outside. Despite her busy schedule, the star just added new products to her already-impressive Nuance beauty line, which are perfect as a pick-me-up on a rough day, or as an indulgent treat to yourself. Click through our gallery to see the latest additions, and check out more Salma in our July issue, on newsstands and available for download now.
We first met Salma Hayek back in 1996 when she posed for our “What’s Sexy Now” feature, and we must admit, her sex appeal got hotter ever since. Fast forward to the cover shoot for InStyle‘s new July issue, where the 47-year-old Grown Ups 2 actress wowed the staff and crew not only with her sex appeal, but also with her sense of humor. In between takes, Hayek chatted with the crew (she playfully spoke Spanish slang with photographer Dusan Reljin), shared stories about her daughter, Valentina (can you believe she’s 5 already?), and made everyone laugh. “She’s sexy and hilarious,” said makeup artist Mary Phillips, who, along with hairstylist Robert Veticia, created Hayek’s beauty looks.

Salma Hayek is InStyle’s July cover girl! At 47, she has done pretty much everything she set out to do. She’s an actress (catch her in Grown Ups 2 this summer) and a producer, a devoted wife to French billionaire fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, and doting mother to 5-year-old Valentina. And when it comes to social injustices, there’s no stopping her—she helped kick off Chime for Change, a campaign founded by Gucci that promotes the empowerment of girls and women around the world. In her exclusive interview with InStyle, Hayek admits she is still finding her way—and herself. Scroll down to find out three things you’ll learn in the issue.

1. HER REAL THOUGHTS ON DRESSING OVER 40
“I’m not really a fashionista. I have an eye; I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband because I want him to be attracted to me,” she said. She likes to pick strapless looks because: “When I turned 40, I started thinking, This is the last year, whenever I’d wear a strapless dress. I always thought you can’t wear them after a certain age, but I’m still getting away with it!” More

Who runs the world? Girls! Chime for Change’s The Sound of Change Live concert in London aired last night, and in addition to the showstopping performances by Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Mary J. Blige, the event also raised a cool $4.3 million in ticket sales. The proceeds will benefit 200 of Chime for Change’s projects to advance the lives of women and girls in over 70 countries, and host Gucci even allowed attendees to donate the value of their ticket to non-profit organizations of their choice. Salma Hayek, Gucci’s Frida Giannini, Zoe Saldana, and Blake Lively also attended, and were treated to a surprise duet performed by Bey and Jay-Z. Change never sounded so sweet!

In honor of International Women’s Day, Avon Ambassador Salma Hayek helped recognize campaigns that have spoken out against women’s violence around the world at the 2nd Annual Avon Communications Awards, held at the United Nations in New York City. Hayek is also raising awareness for the cause by wearing Avon’s new Empowerment Charm Necklace—a $5 piece available at avon.com—and all profits go to support Avon’s domestic abuse awareness programs. “It has an infinity symbol in it to remind you of the infinite potential you have as a woman,” the actress told InStyle.com. “When you live a life free of violence, and even if there is violence in your life, you have to remember that you have infinite potential.”
