Hayek attended the screening of her film in Beirut Souks Cinema City Monday wearing a custom-made couture gown by prominent Lebanese designer Elie Saab. She wore the same outfit, a modified A-Line powder blue dress, to the gala dinner held at Villa Rose in Clemenceau to the benefit of the Children's Cancer Center in Lebanon. She wore Pomellato jewelry. 
Earlier Monday, the actress of Lebanese descent attended a meeting with the media wearing a tea-length, off-white with royal blue floral prints dress from the Alexander McQueen collection. Over the weekend, Hayek visited the Khalil Gebran museum in north Lebanon's picturesque town of Bsharri in a floral Yves Saint Laurent top she paired with a pleated skirt.
Hayek is known for her flirty, feminine style, appearing often on the red carpet in figure-hugging gowns that accentuate her voluptuous curves.

In a 2014 editorial published by NewBeauty magazine, the 48-year-old Hayek discussed her secrets to maintaining her beauty, while accepting the inevitability of aging.
Unlike many of her Hollywood peers, Hayek isn't into cosmetic procedures such as plastic surgery or even the most basic treatments. She tells NewBeauty, "I have never gotten something done just because it was a trend or the next 'biggest wonder.' I tend to stay away from aggressive things. I've never even had a peel or microdermabrasion."

In July 2013's InStyle, cover girl Hayek admitted that her primary inspiration for putting together a good outfit is her husband, French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault. "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.
