Salma Hayek likes to dress up for her husband.

The 'Grown Ups' star - who married French billionaire François-Henri Pinault in 2009 - enjoys trying out new looks in a bid to catch her other half's eye.

She said: ''If you're in love with someone, you always want to conquer them anew. Even if we don't go out, I like to look nice for him.

''He inspires me. There are men who don't notice what you're wearing, and that's cool. But when you make an effort, François appreciates it so much.''

The couple now live in Paris with their four-year-old daughter Valentina, although Salma admits she is regularly blown away by the standards of style on the French capital.

She told Lucky magazine: ''It's nuts, how good the people look. Nobody's overweight, everybody's well dressed, no Tennis shoes - somehow, even though they walk all over the place, everyone manages to wear real shoes, nice shoes.''

Modelling a low ''Parisian'' ponytail, the 45-year-old actress reveals her husband much prefers her hair in its natural state.

She explained: ''My husband, it's funny, but he hates it when I have this Parisian hair! He loves my crazy-maniac-madwoman just-got-out-of-the-shower hair. He is like the lawyer for my thick, wild, natural hair. He's like, 'Why make it suffer?'

''But you know for 45 years I've got this Big Hair, and these big boobs, and I'm this tiny person and sometimes - you just want to be ... smaller.

''He's probably right - my mom always said, 'You think you know better than God?'''
