Salma Hayek embodied the glitz and glamour of Cannes this weekend.

At the premier of Emilia Perez on Saturday, the actor sparkled on the film festival’s red carpet in a strapless sequin gown by Saint Laurent. A known lover of dazzling dresses, she continued that bejeweled love affair in a black figure-hugging gown with a square neckline. The 57-year-old star looked incredible as she posed for photographs, with the sequin ensemble glittering with every move.

Hayek accessorized with a geometric gold bangle bracelet and a black leather clutch with gold hardware. To accentuate her décolletage, she added a gold collar necklace with diamond and coral details, layering it with a longer gold necklace. The latter featured a large flower pendant also decorated with coral and black gemstones. Both necklaces added dimension to the otherwise all-black look.

The actor matched the radiance of her sequined ensemble with her glam: An orangey-brown eye shadow highlighted her brown eyes, while a coral blush and matching coral lipstick coordinated with the color of her jewelry. She wore her hair parted down the middle in effortless waves, letting her natural hair texture shine. Hayek smiled widely in photos with her husband, Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault.

By now, the Frida star has made a habit of delivering fashion statements in sequins. She recently wore another shiny strapless dress—this time a stunning ocean blue—in Italy, and before then, donned an incredible one-shouldered silver sequined Gucci gown for the Oscars after-party in March. At the previous year’s Oscars ceremony, she also repped Gucci sequins, wearing a blood-orange halterneck gown with fringe. There’s no question Hayek knows how to sparkle.
