Zoe Saldana in Carven

Posted on March 14, 2013

We’re apparently in a bad shoe mood today. It’s up to you to decide if “bad” modifies “mood” or “shoe.”

Zoe Saldana attends the 2nd Annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo in New York City in a printed Carven dress paired with Jimmy Choo sandals and Sydney Evan jewelry.

Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ Sandal

Everything’s cute -especially the dress – but we feel like those shoes are too heavy and too focus-pulling. And stylistically, they just don’t seem to go; the dress is all simple and clean, and the shoes are Vegas showgirl. We don’t actually hate it; we just think it’s another in a series of too-heavy shoes today. Is that little micro-trend rearing its head again on the red carpet? Are we in for more angry beartrap shoes down the line? Is it us, or are red carpet trends cycling faster and faster? We’ve only been doing this for 6 years, but we can recall at least 3 separate awards seasons where we were told that “Red is in!” or “Blush is in!” Dammit. We feel like we just got rid of the angry shoes like a month ago.

This calls for expensive vodka. But then again, so many things do, darlings.

Also, it needs to be said: That dress looks a hell of a sight better on Zoe than it did on the model. We’re pretty sure Zoe’s the only woman on the planet who could make those particular cutouts work. And we really don’t hate the shoes. They just need a more night-time dress (and setting) to light them up. But Jesus, they must be a pain in the ass to wear. She must sound like a one-horse open sleigh when she walks quickly. Then again, she probably doesn’t walk quickly for long stretches without tripping.
