Star of the new movie The Words, set to hit theaters September 7, the beautiful Zoe Saldana covers the September 2012 issue of GOTHAM magazine. The 34-year-old actress looks flawless in a satin Givenchy jumpsuit with chiffon details for the Andrew Eccles-photographed cover shot. The fashion magazine gets into some of Zoe’s favorite pieces and her first memories of fashion in a Q&A session with Star Trek co-star Zachary Quinto.
Here are some highlights:
On her first memory of fashion: “My grandmother and great grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the ’60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn’t like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury; it was about art.”
On the favorite piece of clothing she owns: “There’s this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself.”
On her contemporaries with a kindred sense of style: “Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices.”
She looks amazing! What do you think, Vixens?–Vicki Valery
