Zoe Saldana in Jonathan Saunders

Posted on July 23, 2012

We’re a little torn on the subject of what Miss Zoe did to this look:

Or put more accurately: We’re a little torn on the subject of what happened to this look when it went from runway to red carpet. We love the runway version, even though we think a couple inches off the hem would make it cuter. And while there’s nothing wrong with what Miss Zoe’s doing here, the trip from cute, understated chic to belly top and bubble skirt didn’t improve the idea. It’s a beautiful fabric that looks great against her coloring and we suspect that was the primary draw. But as much as we think she can handle and pull off a belly top and bubble skirt, we can’t look at this without wondering if the runway look wasn’t a better use of this fabric.

Also, we’re not convinced those shoes go with it. She looks good overall, but when you put both looks side by side, we default to the original.
