Salma Hayek credits fattening food with looking young.

The 46-year-old actress says being curvy is important to her because she knows her face looks better than if she is too skinny.

She said: ''I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It's not the best for fashion, but it's good for my mood. I am happy because I eat. I am 46; I will not have Botox. You know why [I don't need to do it]? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don't eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts ageing. If you don't eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down.''

Salma - who has a five-year-old daughter Valentina with husband Francois-Henri Pinault - also says there is too much pressure to look like a ''little boy'' in fashion and the industry promotes an unhealthy body ideal.

She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''In recent years, we have had to fight against our genetic nature to look like little boys, to be socially accepted as beautiful.

''It used to be that a young girl couldn't wait to grow up and take the shape of a woman. Now our goal is regression, to look younger and like a child. There has not been enough diversity of boy shape in fashion.''

    It's day three in Milan and we can clearly see some trends emerging that set this city's fashion week apart from New York and London. Designers that showcased their spring collection included Ermanno Scervino, Etro, Giamba, Marco de Vincenzo and Les Copains.

    With the nickname, "Queen of Roses," Anna Molinari's spring collection certainly did not disappoint. Embroidered and appliquéd roses in aqua and pink turned the runway into a dreamy garden. Fragile tulle dresses with strategically-placed embroidery were wildly beautiful, but there were also some modest pieces for the client looking for something more wearable.

    Vibrant colours and dainty turbans gave Missoni's spring collection a decidedly African flavour, and the nonchalance with which the silks and knits were wrapped around the body expressed a relaxed resort mood.
