But like me 46-year-old Salma, who was born in Coastzacoalcos, Veracruz, was visiting her Mexican homeland for only a short time. She now lives in Paris with her French billionaire husband of four years, Francois-Henri Pinault and their 5-year-old daughter Valentia although, she says: "I'm very excited to come back to Mexico and it's always with me wherever I go. It was hard to find tortillas in Paris, but I managed.
"My daughter, though, feels very American and I guess it's her way of having her own identity because her mother is proud to be Mexican and her father is so proud to be French.
"So I want to teach her that home is not a place but more of a state of mind. And I want her to feel at home everywhere we go,"
