Tag: Zoe Saldana (1-5 of 5)

Is a celebrity ever obligated to say yes to a dress?

There weren’t many fashion disasters at last night’s Golden Globes, but there were a couple of major disappointments, most notably Jennifer Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. Was bad taste to blame, or were there other forces at play?

“I’m wearing Dior. I wanted to surprise… do a shocker,” Lawrence told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. Was it just a tongue-in-cheek quip, or was it the actress’ way of saying that she didn’t have the option of choosing something from another label? READ FULL STORY

A naked billboard, a celebrity in blackface, and more of 2013's biggest fashion faux pas

The fashion world had plenty of high moments this year, but let’s face it, it’s more fun to reminisce about the lowest low moments.

Luckily, there were plenty of fashion faux pas committed in 2013.

From Elle magazine’s Melissa McCarthy cover-up to the Jay-Z and Barneys backlash, and Julianne Hough’s regrettable Halloween costume, read on to see the style headlines that got people talking… and not in a good way.


Zoe Saldana strips down for Allure magazine -- PHOTOS

Star Trek actress Zoe Saldana went boldly into her cover shoot for the June issue of Allure magazine.”This is the first time I’ve ever shown so much of myself on a shoot, but I felt so beautiful,” said Saldana, referring to photos that find her topless and even nude wearing only a bracelet. “Obviously when you bare your skin for a photo shoot and it’s supposed to be for a prestigious fashion magazine, there’s something that you have to sort of showcase, so we had amazing jeans and amazing accessories,” she added.

Lanvin Fashion Face-Off: Kim Kardashian vs. Zoe Saldana -- POLL

Making the media rounds in New York City last week, Kim Kardashian caused quite a stir in her not-quite-maternity clothes. On March 26, Kardashian hit the streets wearing a blush-colored honeycomb dress from Lanvin’s Resort 2013 collection, a look that prompted the New York Post to ask, “What the frock?”

Zoe Saldana was the first star to wear the designer piece, modeling it for photographers on the red carpet at the Trevor Project’s ‘Trevor Live’ event in Los Angeles last December.

Obviously, the dress looks very different on Kim — she had major curves long before she sprouted that baby bump — than it does on Zoe’s slender frame, so I think this decision comes down to the shoes. Kardashian paired her dress with a pair of nude Christian Louboutin stilletos, while Saldana went with Lanvin’s crystal toe-cap pumps.

Do makeup, prosthetics and costumes transform Zoe Saldana into a convincing Nina Simone?

When Zoe Saldana was cast as jazz singer Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic Nina, some wondered how believable the petite actress, who is of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent, could be as the curvy, dark skinned singing legend.

Critics, including Simone’s own daughter, have spoken out against the casting choice. “My mother was raised at a time when she was told her nose was too wide, her skin was too dark,” Lisa Simone Kelly said in an interview with The New York Times. “Appearance-wise this is not the best choice.”

Now, new photos from the set of the biopic show Saldana’s transformation, which includes a prosthetic nose, skin-darkening makeup, and a wardrobe by French costume designer Magali Guidasci. See another pic after the jump and tell us: Does Saldana make a convincing Simone? READ FULL STORY
