Salma and daily mail pic

Do you sometimes find yourself not knowing whether to laugh at cry at things you read in the media? I wonder if you spotted this one?

A brief newspaper item caught my eye the other day; it was about the actress Salma Hayak calling for equal pay and better roles for female actors.

That sounds interesting I thought, I’ll Google her and see what I can find out.

I couldn’t find the link to her comment but got this instead, you will be bowled over by the (unintended) irony:

Salma Hayek suffers fashion faux pas in bold patterned dress… before finding her form in a plunging black evening ensemble at Cannes Film Festival

She oozed the glamour of the French Riviera during her first red carpet appearance in Cannes.
But on Saturday as Salma Hayek attended talks, the actress failed to impress in a dowdy knee-length dress.
With clashing fabrics and a restrictive pussy-bow neckline, the garment did little for the 48-year-old’s style credentials.
The American-Mexican beauty kept her make-up to a minimum and wore her shoulder-length brunette locks down. She was giving interviews with Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts at the Kering Women in Motion event on Saturday morning.
Kering, which is the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival 2015, is owned by her husband, François-Henri Pinault. It launched Women in Motion this year to ‘celebrate women’s talent in cinema and encourage debate on their contribution to – and role in – the film industry.’
Salma wore her brown hair in loose waves and kept her make-up to a minimum. The actress sported a pair of red high heels to match her outfit on Saturday morning.Meanwhile, she later slipped into a striking black evening dress, complete with a plunging neckline and a tight waistline. Earlier in the week Salma wowed in a series of show-stopping gowns at various parties and red carpet events.
The pair took part in the event which celebrates women in film and their contribution to the industry

Women's Personal Development Specialist - Changing People, -

Hi, I’m Jane C Woods and I have an absolute passion for helping women achieve success in their lives. Be it the glass ceiling, the crystal maze, or very personal issues, I’m all about helping women achieve to their full potential and live the way they want to without being carbon copies of men. But I’m not about putting men down in order for women to get ahead, there’s plenty of room; I just want the guys to shifty up a bit… If my face looks familiar it's because I love Psychologies magazine (I've been buying it since the very first issue, such a good resource) and it's the only place I choose to advertise my courses. I write on women’s issues on my blog, www.changingpeople.co.uk, and am regularly featured in magazines, and on radio, but I’m probably best known for RenewYou. RenewYou is my one day personal development course for women. We have an international network of experienced, specialist women licensed to deliver it and empower women across the globe. Our goal is to reach one million women. It’s a big goal but… In 2013 we started with a single RenewYou specialist, me. Now you can find a RenewYou Courses across the UK, in the USA, Canada, Greece, Bangkok, Pakistan, South Africa, Belgium, with new countries being added all the time. My dream was to create a thriving and caring business on ethical, and dare I say, feminine terms, with a real community spirit of help and encouragement. And it’s actually happening with the support, expertise, and enthusiasm of my wonderful trainers. I think, (apart from my two lovely kids, a daughter and a son) that it’s probably my proudest achievement to date. Wonderful Changing People Women: One of the joys and privileges of my work is that I’ve connected with some really inspirational and wonderful women – from politics to entertainment to academia. They include: TV presenter, house fixer and matchmaker Sarah Beeny Amazing entrepreneur Sam Roddick of Coco de Mer Outspoken and entertaining academic Mary Beard Politicians like Siobhan Benita and Natalie Bennett Ex BBC broadcaster Miriam O’Reilly who bravely took on the might of the BBC- and triumphed A very rare interview with Sarah Montague, of the influential BBC Radio 4 Today programme I hope you like the posts and I hope they are helpful.
