Bringing her effortless Hollywood glamor center stage, Salma Hayek arrived to the Opening Ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival alongside husband Francois-Henri Pinault earlier today (May 11).

The Mexican-born actress modeled her famously-fabulous figure for the cameras, wearing a showstopping, flowing, silver strapless gown while also joined by Antonio Banderas and his lady, Melanie Griffith.

Salma and Antonio took the event by storm earlier in the morning, arriving at a photocall for their upcoming animated picture "Puss in Boots" by water in a giant pair of floating black boots.

Hayek, who voices Kitty Softpaws in the "Shrek" spin-off, revealed the reason for taking the role while chatting with ET, telling, "I have a child now, so I was very tickled by the idea of me being in one of those movies that she watches thousands of times. … It's very exciting to get rid of your body and just work with your voice."
