Even the most flawless women in Hollywood have gone through the venerable “awkward phase.” Including breathtaking beauty Salma Hayek. She confessed in the latest issue of Lucky mag that when she was 25 years old and left a lucrative soap opera career in Mexico to come to Hollywood, she got a really bad case of acne. “My skin?! I could barely get work as an extra… You want to talk about bad skin?” She continued: “And this acne was so bad it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house.” She said that depression led to eating… a lot. “I mean, I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!” Salma credits the drug Accutane and her friend, director Alfonso Cuaron, with giving her the motivation to pull herself out of that funk.

Twenty years later, she’s a Hollywood vixen, wife of French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, mom to 4-year-old Valentina, and  hotter than ever. She even recently started her own line of skincare and beauty products, Nuance, that’s carried exclusively at CVS. She’s a true inspiration and style icon, especially in these ultra-chic Tom Ford cat eye shades, available in three sophisticated frame hues.
