Prior to her bare-faced selfie, Salma shared an incredibly rare family photo on the social media site. She posed with her step-daughter Mathilde in celebration of the 20-year-old's birthday with the pair looking incredibly stylish as they smiled for the camera.

Mathilde is the only daughter of Salma's husband, Francois-Henri Pinault. The French businessman is also father to sons Francois, 23, and Augustin, 14, who he shares with ex-wife Dorothée Lepère.

Salma and Francois-Henri have been married since 2009 and together share one daughter, 13-year-old Valentina.

During a recent appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard, Salma acknowledged a public misconception: that she had married Francois-Henri, the CEO of luxury fashion group Kering, for his money.

With Dax admitting he didn't know much about Salma’s husband other than the fact he is "really rich", she responded: "You know the thing is that in pictures you cannot begin to guess the magic in him. He's made me become a much better person, and grow in such a good, healthy way.

"And, you know, when I married him, everybody said, 'Oh, it's arranged marriage, she married him for the money.' I'm like, 'Yeah, whatever. Think what you want.' Fifteen years together, and we are strong in love. And I don't even get offended, I'm like, 'Yeah, whatever,'" she added.
