She comes out decked out in occult/MK symbolism with snake jewelry, skulls etc and of course the actual large phallic snake. I've often shown this type of snake/phallic symbolism on various other slaves (symbolising their dominance over the slave [sexual abuse obviously being a major factor in MK, obviously a very effective trigger]), i.e. Britney at the VMA's some years back.
Note the leopar-print walls, and more kitten programming suggestions with a big tiger painting in view (note her feather hairpiece thing, and the skull and bones below the tiger image).
She enters on a pyramid shaped platform ('step pyramid' symbolism; similar above her in red neon light) with twin pillars of fire either side of her, the jewelry attached to her bra can be considered pyramid shaped also.
Speaking of pyramids, in Frida (one of her more serious roles; probably lots in that) she visits some central American ones.
But getting back to the theme of masks, in Bandidas her character (and Penelope's) pretend to be masked prostitutes (note cage-like top hats).
She is a butterfly, performing as a MM Minerva Marabal in 'In the Time of the Butterflies' who becomes known as 'the butterfly' (though based on this novel, it's still ritualizing Salma in this typical MK way [butterflies/MM]; see trailer for more)
By the way, I should mention the top image of Salma covering her face with two Eyes of Horus (mirrored, and pyramid symbolism on the duvet [squares within squares, smallest central one being the capstone]) comes from the November 2002 edition of Elle, with a few what look like butterflies on the cover (in case there was some doubt if it was Salma).
Like most of them, their 'charity' and campaign work is usually ironic (what is it with these people [Madonna etc] treating African kids like their property).
At the above charity event for "helping children" (note symbolism), she was pictured with one of the Fanning sisters, Dakota covered in hearts.
"Lady Liberty": the ultimate global ironic joke. [more phallic/rocket symbolism below from the same set (rocket/phallus shooting her off into space/dissociation/extasy)]
Back to Salma's kitten suggestions, and below with another random South/Central American (or whoever [maybe a reader recognizes her?]) tigress.
Some random images to finish, notice the subliminal symbol in the below shot by Ellen von Unwerth? [there's something quite cat-like about the look in her staring eyes too in my opinion]
Salma in a wig + dragon shoes and whatnot.
Split/shattered mind symbolism above/below.
The people of Venice could have been forgiven the film festival had come early this year when the City of Lights was besieged with A-lists stars on Friday.
Actress Charlize Theron, supermodel Lily Cole, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and even former French president Jacques Chirac jetted into Italy this weekend to celebrate the second wedding ceremony of Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault.
The Mexican actress, 42, and French billionaire, 46, are hosting a second wedding for friends and family after their private civil ceremony in Paris on Valentine's Day.
The couple kicked off the festivities on Friday in true Venetian tradition with a masquerade-style rehearsal dinner at the 17th century Punta Della Dogana, the canal city's old custom house.
The building is one of the most photographed in Venice as it divides the city's Grand Canal and Giudecca Canal.
Frida star Salma showed off her stunning curves in a midnight blue designer dress and killer heels, and completed her outfit with a black and gold Venetian mask.
Following her own to the water taxi was her new husband François-Henri, looking dapper in a black suit and matching mask, who was carrying the couple's 19-month-old daughter Valentina.

Boarding the boat with the family was Salma's new stepson, François-Henri's son from his first marriage.
In a boat leaving Venice's famous Cipriani Hotel shortly after Salma was Oscar winner Charlize Theron and her actor boyfriend Stuart Townsend.
The South African actress got into the spirit of the masquerade wearing a mask and black dress.
Looking summery in a multi-coloured dress was supermodel Lily, who jetted in from her university studies in Cambridge for the weekend's festivities.
Former French president Jacques Chirac arrived via water taxi with his wife Bernadette and François-Henri's billionaire father François Pinault.
Also expected at Friday's party were Salma's close friend Penelope Cruz, Frida co-star Ashley Judd, Gael Garcia Bernal and Lucy Liu.
Earlier on Friday, some of Salma's famous friends were spotted enjoying a spot of sight-seeing in the city's famous Piazza San Marco before the evening party.
Woody Harrelson and his wife Laura Louie met up with magician David Blaine and his fiancee Alizee Guinochet, French actor Olivier Martinez and Salma's ex-boyfriend Ed Norton and his producer girlfriend Shauna Robertson to sip over-priced cappuccinos as they gazed at the Basilica San Marco.
On Saturday, Salma and François-Henri will renew their vows at the billionaire's 18th century Palazzo Grassi on Saturday.
The Palazzo Grassi, a historic white marble palace, holds a special meaning for the couple because it is the location of their first meeting in May 2006 - where François-Henri was hosting a gala.
They originally wed in the City Hall of the Sixth Arrondissement - owned by the Pinault family - in the St Germain area of the French capital on February 14.
The couple's civil marriage on Valentine's Day in Paris took many by surprise because they had announced the end of their engagement just seven months earlier.
After a low-key courtship, they announced their engagement and the Mexican's actress's pregnancy in March 2007.
Salma gave birth to their daughter Valentina Paloma in a Los Angeles hospital in September 2007, but announced their split last July.
They blamed geography issues because Salma is based in LA and François-Henri lives in Paris, where he runs his luxury brands firm PPR, which owns Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.
But by September, rumours began they had reconciled began after they were spotted together in Paris.
A friend of the couple told People magazine they were 'very evidently in love with each other, very affectionate in public' when they attended the Dubai Film Festival last December.

[Edit: Updated link + images from the day after the above (26th); interesting to hear the Wizard of Oz dissociation programming song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was sung by all the MK'd actors (cheers to Kris for info + link, hadn't seen that)]
[Salma is a very well preserved flower at age 42]
Bono showed up with his wife Ali Hewson, I see a creepy owl face, though it seems to be mirrored birds or something.
Last addition; Salma was out during the day (26th) in Venice in black/white duality stripes, along with Francois-Henri and his Venetian mask.
