Salma, 45, was chosen to receive the prestigious Legion d’ Honneur. She will enter the five-tier honor academy with the rank of Chevalier or also known as knight. Along with the other nominees, the actress will receive the formal induction in the following two months. Based on official sources, Salma’s Presidential pinning will most likely happen at the Elysees Palace and this will be followed by a banquet for the awardees and their guests.
This past week-end, Salma Hayek became Mrs. François-Henri Pinault, again!

What's more romantic than getting married on Valentine's Day?
Well, That's exactly what Salma Hayek thought! Salma Hayek tied the knot in Paris last week on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine's Day!
It's strange how things work out for people ... they've just been gifted with a tiny little daughter and they decide to call off their engagement! What perfect timing!
Salma Hayek and her Billionaire fiance Francois-Henri Pinault, have announced that they've called off their engagement!
The couple have been engaged for 16 months now and they have the cutest daughter together. I don't get it!
Hayek's rep told USA Today in a statement: "We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been canceled. There will be no further comment."
I hope this will only be for the best of everyone ... especially little Valentina!
Salma Hayek enjoyed a day out in the sun last week and went to lunch at Taverna Tony's in Malibu.
Salma wasn't alone though, she had her 10-month-old baby girl Valentina by her side.
Little Valentina stuck to her mother's hip and just chillaxed!
Salma has lost lots of her baby fat and Valentina has already grown so much! She even looks like a little Salma!
How's Salma spending her time with Valentina? Well, it seems she's enjoying every minute with her and watching her grow. She recently said this: "She sticks her tongue out, she claps at everything. From day one, she’s been smiling and laughing. She’s a very happy baby. Everything she does melts my heart".
It's cool to see a celebrity mom enjoying these tiny moments with her daughter.
Sometimes it seems that celebs don't even have the time to watch their children grow and learn new things!
Salma Hayek's 6-month-old daughter, Valentina Pinault, is unbelievably cute!
She's even a spitting image of her mommy!
The mom and daughter were spotted shopping at the Balenciaga boutique in West Hollywood two days ago.
The pair, and an assistant, were shopping and enjoying the free time.
After they finished, they hoped into their New Toyota Prius and headed home!
You can't deny that little Valentina is so adorable! Coochy Coochy Coo!

Salma Hayek gave birth to a baby girl about two months ago ... we only know that her name is Valentina Paloma ... until now!
It seems PEOPLE did not get the honors of introducing baby Valentina to the world! Neither did anyone else!
Salma chose to release the photo herself and let everyone run it! It’s credited to the Associated Press and there are many other newspapers running it today. Cool move Salma!
She looks a lot like Salma, no? I love her smirk! Her smile is a really cute one!
Although the story is that Salma is engaged to French billionaire businessman François Henri Pinault ... theres a rumor that they might have gotten married, secretly! Because Salma has a credit card issued to Salma Hayek-Pinault and is said to refer to François Henri as her husband.
Salma Hayek has welcomed a tiny little girl into the world on Friday.
Salma & her French, rich fiance François Henri Pinault, are the proud parents of Valentina Paloma Pinault. ooh! Sexy name!
This is Salma's first child & Pinault's third, he has two children from a previous marriage.
I'm happy for Salma, she seems to be the kind that likes kids & has a motherly aura about her.
She actually told a magazine once, i think it was Marie Claire, that she believes motherhood is for her! She said something like: "Motherhood is not for everyone. It is for me though, but there's no reason women should rush into having babies."
Congratulations Salma & Mr. Pinault!
You gotta admit that Salma Hayek is gonna burst any moment now!
Salma is about 9-months-pregnant & she's going to give birth any moment.
But ... she couldn't let it pass without a huge baby shpwer party, could she?!
Well, her baby shower was held in her Hollywood Hills home.
According to Us Magazine, Salma & her guests enjoyed yummy homemade Mexican food during the party, after which Salma received gifts off her registry at L.A.'s NoMi Boutique.
So, Salma Hayek wants a bunch of weddings? One isn't enough for her & her wealthy fiance? Ha!
Star Magazine is reporting that Salma is planning to hold three wedding ceremonies, one in her hometown in Mexico, one in her fiance's hometown Paris and one in L.A.
Well, why not! With her salary & her fiance's money, she can hold thirty weddings!
But the $1 million question is ... who will get the rights of the wedding photos? Will People win the bid? Or will Hello! be the lucky ones?
Salma Hayek, who is very pregnant these days, was spotted out in the sun a couple of days ago. She went out for a bite at Fred Segal on Sunday.
Although Salma has become huge, she still looks good!
She wore a cool, black t-shirt with the words 'Stylish . Sexy . Pregnant' on it.
Salma & her French fiance, François-Henri Pinault, the CEO of the mother company of Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent, are expecting their 1st baby in just a couple of months.
I wonder, is that a baby boy or baby girl all curled up in her tummy?
A couple of days ago, I came across photos of Salma Hayek ... But they were no ordinary photos; she looked shabby & sported what looked like a baby bump! Everyone was speculating whether Salma was pregnant or not!
Today, her reps confirmed that not only is she pregnant, but she's also engaged to a super rich French guy! He's the CEO of the mother company of Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent!
There is an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy & for Salma Hayek there's a Best Nude Movie Scene Award!
Hayek, who bared it all in a sizzling nude scene with Collin Farrell this year in their movie Ask The Dust, won best nude movie scene of 2006.
Film review website Mr.Skin.com. has put the steamy skinny-dipping scene on top for this years hot list.
As for the other scenes that come after Hayek's, they are as follows:
What an accidnt! Salma Hayek accidentally left some jewelry on the back seat of a New York taxi cab. The Frida star estimates the value of the gems to be at nearly $50,000.
It wasn't actually Salma who forgot the jewelry, it was her assistant! -how could you forget such a thing in a taxi!?-
Anyway, Salma is very lucky, because Lorenzo Borghese, the star of The Bachelor, happened to be the next customer in the cab, & he returned the jewels.
