Born to a family of mixed Spanish and Lebanese ancestry, in the city of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, the first great hit of Salma Hayek was her protagonist role in the telenovela Teresa, which aired between 1989 and 1990.

This was followed by her 1994-apparition as a leading character in El callejón de los milagros (“The Alley of Miracles,” to this day the most awarded film in the history of Mexican cinema) which served to catapult her to Hollywood, where she began her career in 1995 with a role in the second film of Robert Rodriguez’ Mexico Trilogy, Desperado.

From these explosive beginnings in Mexican screens to her current status as one of the most recognizable faces of Hollywood, there’s no doubt that Salma Hayek has made it, big time.

And her sense of fashion certainly hasn’t been falling behind, either: here we present the ten most-stunning photos of Salma Hayek, displaying her best leading-lady looks for the camera.
