Zoe Saldana in Miu Miu

Posted on March 07, 2013

We’ll always love a lady who takes risks with her fashion and Miss Zoe is definitely one of those ladies. But looking at these pics, we wonder if she isn’t better suited for classic, simple looks.


Zoe Saldana attends the Miu Miu Fall 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week.

Because this would look like a whole bunch of nothing on the wrong person, but it really stands out on Zoe. We’ll grant you, the fit on those pants is problematic, and we’re not trying to claim this is some sort of head-turner of an outfit; just that she looks sharp and effortlessly chic. We subscribe to the idea that people going to fashion shows should loosen up a bit and have some fun, because it’s an experience unique and wholly of the moment. But there’s nothing wrong with a good pared-down “fashion editor” drag when it’s done well.

    It would be hard for anyone to screw up that gorgeous coat. On a fashion goddess like Zoe, it’s the epitome of effortless chic.

  • That coat!

  • i hate her face

  • IAmJ

    I love this look. Definitely not for everyone but she’s making it work beautifully.

  • In_Stitches

    Proof that even the genetically flawless can look comically horrendous in the wrong pair of pants.  

  • Scimommy

    I’ve noticed that Zoe Saldana is the only celebrity who can come out wearing *anything* (a potato sack, a whole lot of cray-cray, you name it) and I will think she looks fabulously chic. Not sure what it is as I don’t think I’ve ever seen her act, so couldn’t say I’m a fan of her work. Must be her, what, attitude? Innate fierceness? Something.

    • OrigamiRose

      Columbiana is a pretty good showcase of her fierceness on-screen, if you are inclined towards films in the “utterly escapist, chicks kicking ass” genre (La Femme Nikita, Kill Bill, etc.). My boyfriend dragged me to it, likely in anticipation of a gratuitous nude scene (which did not come to fruition), and I ended up loving the film far more than he did.

    OH.  Gorgeous.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the coat is flawless, but would those be the “mom jeans” of leather leggings?…

  • Well, it’s really all about the perfect warm brown of that coat, and it’s lip smacking perfect cut.

    • l_c_ann

      She grabbed a summer bag, though. Otherwise  perfect.

    • StellaZafella

      Fix the little fit issues with the pants and make them a bark brown or red Latigo and I’d love it even more…
      maybe it’s my history hiccuping back at me but black-leather-anything-other-than-purse just sends my mind to The Brig…so to speak.

      Or the old Tin Angel Bar.

      • Darling,…
        So, it’s your Mind going to the Brig, is it? Curious.

  • lrober03

    Not many people can work a pair of high waisted leather pants.  Love it

  • fringebenefit

    Wow. Perfectly exquisite.

  • Laurie Bergman

    The red lip is the perfect punctuation to this look.

  • Imasewsure

    Not crazy about the makeup but I love this outfit on her

  • filmcricket

    … Okay, I just officially do not get it with her. That’s cool. One of my many blind spots.

    • Indovina

      Me either.

      You don’t have to go through life not understanding why Zoe Saldana is supposed to be interesting alone.

    • pookiesmom


  • No.  I think both modes of dressing — risk-taking and classic — work on her equally well.  She is just very well-suited for fashion, even beyond the obvious fact that she’s built like a model.

  • Alyssa

    That coat is amazing! I’ll take one please!

  • PastryGoddess

    she can do chic when she’s a Hollywood Matron.  I say go for the high fashion drama now

  • RMJ

    She looks great, but part of me wants that jacket to be a cape. Capes forever.

  • That lip color is singing with her skin. Gorgeous.

  • MilaXX

    I like the look. She looks great here. I even forgive the fit of the pants. Leather doesn’t exactly snap back after sitting

  • BrooklynBomber

    Love, love, love.

  • Stacey Moriarty

    Speaking of fashion show attendees; I missed your run down of who wore what to the shows in NYC. Those posts have always been some of my favorites. ( Zoe looks simply lovely.)

  • Pants_are_a_must

    There’s something very classic Angelina Jolie about this look. I think Zoe is right to talk a walk on that side for a while.

  • warnerave

    she looks like she’s 3 months pregnant

    • pookiesmom

      Pregnant with what? A black hole?

  • libraangel

    This look is exquisite, elegant, and chic. Brava, Zoe!

  • kathrineb

    Perfection. Love this look.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    Gorgeous ankles.  Is that weird?

  • Effortlessly chic. 

  • luv huh

  • Judi Townsend

    She is so skinny it is distracting

  • makeityourself

    There is nothing better than a sleek, well tailored coat. Nothing.

  • Kind of boring. More like the bare bases of an outfit, than an actual outfit. 

  • For some strange reason she reminds me of her character in Centre Stage

  • Beardslee

    I know I am an unfabulous dullard but this, apart being chic, is seasonal!  How refreshing, and it can only add to how elegant she looks.

  • notterriblybitter

    In my imaginary world, this is how I look every morning when I walk out the door.

  • Indigo54

    I don’t like the shoes.  Wish she’d worn some fierce booties.  

  • Cathy S

    Goodness, that coat. Fabulous.

  • butterflysunita

    She looks amazing. 

  • this Zoe its a beautiful woman.
