There's not many women who would be able to carry off a bright orange form-fitting dress.

But Salma Hayek looked simply stunning as she showcased her hourglass curves in an eye-catching tangerine number in Venice, Italy, earlier today.

The 45-year-old actress had every reason to be smiling as she flaunted her fabulous figure in the chic ensemble, which she paired with towering nude platform court shoes and a matching shoulder bag.

With her raven locks pulled back into a simple ponytail and oversized sunglasses sheltering her eyes, the Oscar-winning star looked stylish and sophisticated as she prepared to leave the Italian city.

The actress was accompanied on her trip to Venice by her husband, French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, and adorable four-year-old daughter, Valentina.

And the group looked every inch the perfect family as they departed Venice earlier today (Sunday), with Valentina grinning from ear to ear as she held hands with both her loving parents.

During her time at the Venice Film Festival, Salma has scored a string of fashion hits.

The Mexican beauty arrived in the picturesque city showing off her stunning curves in a pretty orange and red patterned dress, which served to accentuate her tiny waist and perfectly complemented her olive skin tone.

She then pulled out all the stops in a floor length black gown with a daring plunging neckline as she attended the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event on Friday night.

Venice holds a special place in the hearts of Salma and her husband, after they tied the knot in the romantic city back in 2009.

The couple hosted a masquerade-style rehearsal dinner at the 17th century Punta Della Dogana, the canal city's old custom house, before exchanging vows in a romantic ceremony in front of 150 family members and friends at the 18th century La Fenice opera house.

Meanwhile, the Palazzo Grassi, a historic white marble palace owned by the Pinault family, was the location of the couple's first meeting back in 2007.
