It was the role that landed her her first - and, to date, only - Oscar nomination.

And although Salma Hayek failed to scoop the 2003 Best Actress gong for her portrayal of artist Frida Kahlo in biopic Frida, this wasn't stopping the star from channelling her once again on Wednesday evening.

Salma - Attendance - Event - Mexican - Portrait

Salma, 51, was in attendance at an event dedicated to the late Mexican portrait painter at London's V&A museum.

She was sure to return to the sartorial roots of the artist - and Salma's own roots as well - as she turned up to the event in a traditional Spanish dress.

Number - Florals - Salma - Turquoise - Sash

The black number featured brightly coloured florals, which Salma accessorised with a turquoise sash and statement jewellery.

The jewellery included large feature earrings and chunky orange beads, which she wore around her neck.

Flair - Ensemble - Form - Headpiece

She added extra dramatic flair to the ensemble in the form of a red headpiece.

Salma wore her dark tresses tied up, away from her features, and she decorated her complexion with a deep rouge lipstick and a sweep of mascara.

Evening - Guests - Likes - Annie - Lennox

The evening guests included the likes of Annie Lennox, Douglas Booth, Clara Amfo, Donna Air and Pearl Mackie.

Salma and co walked into the London museum via a Casa Azul blue carpet to preview the V&A’s latest exhibition which is fully titled Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up.

Exhibition - Frida - Artists - Women - Century

The exhibition explores how Frida, one of the most recognised and significant artists and women of the 20th century, fashioned her identity, and is the first outside of Mexico to display Kahlo’s clothes and intimate possessions.

The exhibition showcases objects including outfits, make-up, jewellery, letters and reunites them with key self-portraits and photographs.
