Salma Hayek Pinault is ringing in a new year in style!

On Wednesday, the actress celebrated her 54th birthday near the beach in a yellow cutout swimsuit and a matching maxi skirt by luxury swimwear designer Melissa Odabash. She paired the vacation look with chunky gold jewelry, black sunglasses and a bold red lip.

“I am very grateful and proud for every single one of my 54 years,” Hayek Pinault wrote on Instagram alongside an outfit photo and a glowing selfie. “Thank you for all the birthday wishes, especially to my fans who made a special account for my birthday. What a gift! @salmahappybirthday ✨”

“When I look at pictures of me in my 30s or in my 40s, I see myself more beautiful than I saw myself at the time,” said Hayek Pinault, who posed makeup-free inside the issue, along with stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rita Wilson and Sarah Paulson.

“I used to criticize myself so much," she continued. "Now when I look in the mirror and there are things that I don’t see, I think about how much I’m going to like me in 10 years.”
