Hot stuff coming through!

The September issue of Allure hits some dangerous curves thanks to cover girl Salma Hayek’s busty pose in a form-fitting, black plunging Yves Saint Laurent cardigan.

“My boobs, they’re not bad, by the way,” the Latina bombshell tells the magazine. “I’m not complaining about them.”

And neither is anyone else. The “girls” get plenty of exposure in Hayek’s accompanying fashion spread with Mario Testino, which sees her rocking an olive green Stella McCartney top and loose Brigitte Bardot-style waves.

Set to launch her natural Nuance skincare line for CVS, the actress—who claims she was teased as a child for being “too short” and “too brown”—shares her take on plastic surgery.

“I’ve never had anything done on my face—I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing,” she says.

“I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. It’s [plastic surgery] like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”

Instead, Hayek credits confidence (and a fab pair of heels) for helping her fight aging.

“As a woman, you should be more at ease with your sexuality when you are in your 40s,” she says.

“You are more self-assured about that part. And that’s the way it should be. If you are a girl who cannot walk in heels, it doesn’t matter how beautiful you are. If you look like a chicken that’s been spiked in the feet, it’s not going to be sexy.”

Good thing she’s married to PPR head François-Henri Pinault, who oversees labels like YSL, Alexander McQueen, and Gucci. No shortage of heels there!
