A third added: "You deserved that recognition long, long time ago, but I'm glad it finally happened."

It's certainly been an eventful month for the Mexican star. Earlier this week the Frida actress stepped out in London for the first VIP screening of her upcoming film, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, which will be released in cinemas from 16 June.

Salma shared a gorgeous photo of herself at the special preview show on Instagram, looking stylish with a sleek hair transformation.

The mother-of-one's hair was styled in a middle parting, framing her face beautifully.

The Hollywood star opted for a chic ensemble for the night, dressed in a sheer polka dot blouse and tailored white skirt.

Fans were quick to comment on Salma's appearance, with one writing: "You look so beautiful!" while another wrote: "So chic!"
