Salma Hayek looks beyond stunning when she’s strutting her stuff down a red carpet or proving her acting skills on the big screen. Selfies, however, are not her strength, the Magic Mike’s Last Dance star admitted in her latest Instagram post.

Lucky for the 57-year-old, she’s bffs with reality TV personality and posing queen Kim Kardashian. And, Hayek is ready to learn from the best.

The SKIMS clothing brand and SKKN cosmetics company founder snapped a series of pics in Hayek’s latest Instagram post, as Kardashian demonstrated just how to take the perfect selfie. She showed off her best angles, moody smize, bold smolder, quirky duck face and more while the two sat in the front row at a luxury runway show during Paris Fashion Week.

The mom of one, who shares her daughter, Valentina, with husband and Kering group CEO François-Henri Pinault, shared a montage Wednesday with her 28.3 million followers including a screen recording of her taking a (below-average) selfie with the mom of four. Hayek then passed the phone to Kardashian, who snapped a much better selfie of the two.

Hayek also included a snippet of someone filming her from afar as she fumbled with her phone for a few seconds, trying to capture the models walking down the runway.

“Let’s face it, I’m no good at selfies. It’s best to let the queen, @kimkardashian, handle that,” Hayek captioned the video, which was set to an upbeat instrumental audio. “But my video footage is not too bad especially when I’m chewing gum 🤪.”

“Sliving 😍,” Rebeca Riofrio commented, using the Paris Hilton-coined term to mean ‘slaying’ and ‘living.’

“2 of most beautiful women ever 😍😍❤️❤️,” one fan chimed.
