Salma Hayek went for sophisticated-chic at an anti-domestic violence event last night.

The actress picked a simple black dress with a nipped-in waist and paired with opaque tights.

Gorgeous silver jewellery and pointed heels gave her an air of sophisticated femininity.

Salma also showed off a great beauty look, choosing to scrape back her hair, but softening the style by keeping some of her locks loose.

The star chose to accentuate her eyes by using a black kohl pencil and framed her face with strong brows, while keeping her lipstick neutral.

Salma attended yesterday’s event to speak out against domestic violence and share her own experiences.

“The first time I saw domestic violence firsthand was when I was in Mexico, taking a walk with my family, and we came upon a man beating up this woman,” she recalled as she addressed the audience.

“My father intervened and fought the man and won. I remember thinking, 'Oh my God, my father is a hero.’”

“Then the woman turned around and started beating up my father. I couldn't comprehend what was happening. After that I became very intrigued with what makes a woman stay in an abusive relationship. How does her spirit break?”

The pretty brunette is known for her involvement in women’s charities, recently joining Gucci initiative Chime For Change along with Beyoncé Knowles and Jada Pinkett Smith.

The project aims to empower women worldwide by bringing them stories of strong, successful females such as the celebrities involved.

The 46-year-old has also donated a significant amount to schemes, including a shelter for women in Mexico and anti-domestic violence groups.
