Star Trek Germany Photocall

Posted on April 29, 2013

Darlings, here are some really attractive people from the future. Let’s judge them.


Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Chris Pine attend the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Photocall in Berlin, Germany.


Zoe Saldana in a Calvin Klein Top and Skirt and Jimmy Choo Sandals

Calvin Klein Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Carolyn Murphy

The strip of belly skin feels completely, 100% unnecessary and distracting, especially when she turns around and shows you how complicated the back is. Love the skirt; not loving the shoes at all.



Zachary Quinto

This makes us happy. He’s still doing that vaguely hipster thing he likes to do, but everything fits and flatters him. Plus it’s got a tiny bit of an edge to it, which works really well with his somewhat imposing looks (and why the PeeWee Herman hipster drag tends to look awful on him).


Simon Pegg

This is … we don’t even know what this is.



Alice Eve in a Reem Acra dress and Bionda Castana Booties

The dress is fine, the shoes seem like a bit much to us. But the real story is that super-wiggy Goldie Hawn hair she’s sporting. What’s THAT all about?


Chris Pine

This is pretty much perfect. Our only issue is the color, which blends in a bit too much with his hair and skin.

    I don’t know who Alice Eve is, but the bad hair reminded me of Sigourney Weaver in that Star Trek Parody “Galaxy Quest”, which, BTW, is a surprisingly funny/entertaining movie for sci-fi/fantasy nerds 😛

    Chris Pine is YUMMY. That is all I have to say about him.

    • raininmai

      Agree on both points!

    • Catiline

      I WAS JUST COMING TO MENTION THE GALAXY QUEST HAIR. That’s exactly what it is.

    • You took the words out of my mouth about the hair!

      Also Why is Chris Pine wearing so many clothes? GIVE THE FANS WHAT THEY WANT CHRIS!

      • I don’t know, a three-piece suit is what THIS fan wants. 😉

        • True, he does look quite fetching in a suit. 🙂

        • Derek_anny

          It’s like when you get a giftbox, that’s got another giftbox inside, with tissue paper wrapping inside that.

    • GorgeousThings

      Galaxy Quest is one of my favorite fun movies – and Sigourney Weaver’s hair deserves its own credit!

    • Ah, thank you. I kept thinking, why is she reminding me of Sigourney Weaver? Answered.

    • TheGal

      YES. I wondered if the poor thing had cancer and was wearing a wig. It looks terrible. Just terrible. My dear friend spend tons of money on her wig and it didn’t look much better than that.

      • H2olovngrl

        I wondered if maybe she was bald for a role…? Does she play Ilia, perhaps…?

    • TheAmericaness

      OMG!!! YES! That’s the first thing I thought of! Galaxy Quest FTW!

    • My brain went to Galaxy Quest before Goldie Hawn as well. The only way she could look more like Sigourney Weaver in that over-the-shoulder shot would be to put out a couple of karate hands.

    • Alice Eve is Trevor Eve’s daughter. That will only mean anything to UK crime-drama fans born before, what, 1980? I want so badly to love her, since he is fantastic, but frankly her mushroom cloud booms are killing me.

      • I’ve also seen her in quite a few movies. She didn’t just come out of nowhere – she has a good list of credits. However, the only one I’d recommend is Starter for Ten, with bonus James McAvoy and Rebecca Hall.

  • sededed

    *Sigh*. Anyone else click on this for a sighting of the tall glass of water that is Benedict Cumberbatch? Where is that delicious man?

    • Scimommy

      He’ll be at the London premiere in a few days. Maybe we’ll see him here then! (God, I hope his pants will be properly hemmed.)

      • H2olovngrl

        Can’t wait for that post! Hint, hint…

    • I was looking for him too… guess he’s still too busy filming ‘Sherlock’, though I’m guessing they’ll have to let him go for some Star Trek premieres pretty soon.

    • It was like opening presents Christmas morning to find nothing but socks. I feel weepy and deprived.

      • DeborahJozayt

        See, when my brother and I got socks for Christmas, we’d roll them up into balls and have a snowball fight in the living room. Hitting the Christmas tree or the parents cost us 10 points. It made getting socks worth the work in opening the present.

  • Looks like Alice Eve stole the wig Sigourney Weaver sported in Galaxy Quest.

    • Violina23

      It makes me way too happy that I’m not the only one who thought that 😉

    • Terrie_S

      That was my thought as well!

  • Judy_S

    Don’t they make a nice group? Five nice-looking young people and Alice Eve’s bangs.
    I didn’t like Pegg at first but actually I think he looks OK after all.

  • TheLaurenJean

    Chris Pine looks perfect. Never seen him look better

    • sunnycalif

      Hasn’t he heard of shoe polish?

  • Zoe loves her midriff. Zach wins this batch. Alice is mostly a comedy actress, but I’m curious about her role in Trek II. Chris cleans up good! Simon = British, and also comic relief. But most importantly, look at Carolyn Murphy strut! Now we know what she’s good at!

  • raininmai

    “Imposing” is right for ZQ. When I look at him, all I can see is Sylar. 🙂

  • It seems like Zoe and Simon got dressed for vastly different climates.

    • drdarke

      Sure does, Charlotte – Pegg and Pine seem dressed for cold and gusty, both ladies seem dressed for late April (though can somebody please get rid of their shoes and give them some basic pumps to wear?), and Quinto seems like he came out expecting it to be colder than it was, and when he got outside went “Oh! ‘Scuse me while I whip this out….”

      I’m guessing Simon Pegg must have been wearing a t-shirt with some slogan that was either offensive or an ad, so they told him to button up his jacket – only thing that makes sense.

      Yes on Alice Eve’s hair! I completely expect one last shot of Sigourney Weaver pulling the wig off her head while everybody else tries to break them up….

  • StellaZafella

    Zoe: See my abs, see ’em!”
    Zac: “I really hate photo calls…wait, am I smiling?”
    Simon: “I mean it, can I have a towel?”
    Alice: “Is the label showing?….no, the one on my hair!”
    Chris: (“I’m too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my…”)

    • drdarke

      I’d like this multiple times if I could, @StellaZafella:disqus .

    • so sexy it hurts… on the cat walk, quand en baillo… I shake my tush on the catwalk

  • Qitkat

    If I saw this dress from the back walking away down the street, I would expect to see a Baby Bjorn on the front when she turned around.

  • Zoe: Could have done without the superfluous belly skin. Otherwise the outfit is cute, I like her hair, but I loathe the shoes.

    Zachary: Love him.

    Simon: Really?

    Alice: WHO? The dress is pretty, and I even like the shoes (I HATE booties), but WTF is up with her hair?

    Chris: Looks great, but the color could have been better. And it seems just the teensiest bit too tight. As it is, he’s working the math professor look. If my math professor looked like this, I wouldn’t have zoned out in class quite so much.

  • Zachary looks like a young Daniel Day Lewis to me. Esp dressed as he is…

  • Zoe is giving the most awkward and uncomfortable smile I’ve seen in a long time. The strip of midriff seems so desperate, like she’s so fashion she must alter even the best designs. The Galaxy Quest wig comments for Alice Eve are so spot it’s criminal. For her.
    The boys, are doing a good job being boys. Nice jackets, expensively distressed shoes, etc. Though I am having a hard time coming to terms with just how tight men’s pants have become, in general.

  • I really liked Zoe Saldana’s outfit when I thought that was a belt. I like it less knowing that it’s her stomach.

    I love when the gents look great too.

    • random_poster

      I thought it was a belt when I saw the smaller picture, too, and was ready to love the outfit. That was a major scroll down disappointment.

  • lrober03

    Zach needs a shoe shine and to press his pants…then he’d look perfect

  • Simon, your pants are too tight – I love you anyway.

    Zoe, fabulous skirt.

    Alice Eve looks like she dressed up for a costume party as Heidi Klum (though I love the Galaxy Quest comments – you’re all so right).

    I love Chris Pine in a beard.

    And Quinto looks like an ex-boyfriend of mine, but Sylar and AHS have made me always think of him as a serial killer. Well, not my ex as a serial killer, but now I can’t really keep the two feelings separate. It’s all very confusing.

    • RebeccaKW

      Whether costumed as Frau Heidi or Sigourney/Galaxy Quest, the wig came from Walgreen’s. Holy cow, is that a cheap wig. Also, I love Simon Pegg, but is he wearing pajama jeans?

    • drdarke

      @facebook-100000413803142:disqus – that’s the same reason my wife refuses to watch Abrams’s STAR TREK reboots! She can’t get past Quinto as Sylar – and she had a huge crush on Nimoy as Spock when she was a tween-ager….

  • Catiline

    The lack of John Cho pains me. Zoe Saldana, IMO, is killing it in that skirt.

  • snarkykitten

    Did she buy that wig at a discount store the day after Halloween?

  • Holy helmet head on Alice Eve, whoever that is. Simon looks adorable to me and probably has zero idea how to dress for the photocall of a major blockbuster in which he’s one of the main castmembers. Has this happened for him before? I like his jacket though.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      He’s been in a couple of Mission Impossible films plus the first Star Trek reboot so really and truly he should know better… I love him in too tight trousers anyway.

  • MK03

    God, I loves me some Simon Pegg.

    • Griffinqueen

      He may not make it as a TLO fashion icon, but he makes my nerd-girl heart all giggly 🙂

      • MK03

        My crush on that man is unreal.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I wonder if she’s playing Carol Marcus. Bad wig.

    Pretty people, forgettable clothes.

    • CT14

      According to imdb, she is.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I think my nerd-score just went up from guessing that by the picture…

        • formerlyAnon

          It did.

  • Zoe Saldana is going to snap and break any day now.

  • MilaXX

    Chris Pine FTW! Everyone else’s looks I have quibbles with.. I hate that Zoe shortened that top. I hate Quinto’s beat up boots. Simon Pegg just looks like a wee man in a too big jacket and skinny jeans, and Alice Eve’s hair & shoes are horrible.

  • When I first looked at Zoe Saldana I thought that strip of visible belly skin was a belt and thought, “so cute!” But then, no. And Alice Eve… THAT HAIR, girl. I can’t.

    • formerlyAnon

      Right? Ms. Saldana is *hands down* the most attractive human here (I say this as a straight girl with a tiny bit of a fondness for Mr. Pegg), and that dopey top just ruins it.

  • But now he’s Sylar about to eat my brain!

  • Beardslee

    A gray spring day in Germany, but God forbid the women get to wear jackest. Why the animus against jackets, or sleeves of all kinds, really? Or shoes that aren’t best worn while sitting down somewhere in July?

    • demidaemon

      Didn’t you hear about Anya’s plan for a world without sleeves?

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Oh my Lord but Chris Pine looks heavenly! I like Zac’s outfit, it suits him well. Zoe’s skirt is killah, but who the heck is Alice Eve and why does she have Sigourney’s wig?

  • nannypoo

    I love the Calvin Klein dress on the model. The top needs to meet the skirt. Those are some pretty matronly shoes she has on and I don’t like what Zoe has on her feet either. It doesn’t seem like it should be hard to find perfect shoes for such a great dress.

  • In_Stitches

    I love the front of Zoe’s dress, belly skin included. The back is a hilarious mess…makes her look like a fashion-y train conductor.

    Pine’s suit is fine, but I’m shocked you didn’t comment on the tightness of his suit. I doubt there’s a way to get the same slim silhouette through the torso without the jacket being that tight though.

  • GTrain

    yeesh, all i see in that first shot is wig

  • GorgeousThings

    Major WTFery going on with Zoe. Between the belly strip and those shoes – yeesh!
    Zachary Quinto looks great. Same with Chris Pine. I never realized how short Simon Pegg is.
    Completely agree about Galaxy Quest hair lady.

    And where the hell is Sherlock – er – Benedict????!

  • Imasewsure

    oh my gawd how cute is that dorky wave in the last photo… love him… don’t love either of the ladies here tho

  • Jessi03

    No joke, I thought Alice Eve was Ann Margaret. Not a young Ann Margaret. Actual Ann Margaret. o.O

  • I love the Calvin Klein runway dress.

  • Eric Stott

    Simon Pegg…I love the coat, if you insist on wearing those trousers please go stand behind something.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Simon Pegg is so delightful and so wonderfully geeky he can wear whatever the hell he wants. He transcends. I traitorously say that as someone who works in the industry. I love him that much.

  • Tatiana Luján

    OMG, Simon Pegg is wearing “jeannings”

  • alyce1213

    I like the Calvin Klein better on Zoe than as shown on the model, but the back straps are just nuts, so wrong.
    Zachary Quinto’s ‘imposing’ green trousers look like they belong to a sanitation worker.
    Simon Pegg can’t get away being elfie boy any more.

    Chris Pine should have kept the jacket open. It’s tight — the button is pulling. Otherwise, fine.
    Everyone (except Chris Pine) is wearing really bad shoes.

  • SewingSiren

    The Von Trapp family singers.

  • Trisha26

    To me they all look simply awful for one reason or another – the midriff, the Forest Gump drag including filthy boots, the I’m not even trying, the too much dress for a daytime photo & the hair, the 3-piece wrinkled mess. And they sum up this version of Star Trek for me – completely unnecessary.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Dearest, most beloved Simon Pegg: THAT IS NOT YOUR COAT. THOSE ARE NOT YOUR JEANS. Please do better, I implore you. Surely there’s a version of nerd chic you can totally rock.

  • MsALVA

    Did Zach Quinto have to trudge through a bog on his way to the photo call? That’s the only excuse I can think of for those mud-covered dirty shoes.

    • l_c_ann

      Same wonderment here. Or are the shoes supposed to be canvas camo?

  • Though Chris Pine looks gorgeous, I’m not feeling the 3-piece suit – especially since the jacket seems too tight (the button looks strained).

    Simon Pegg is slowly morphing into Toby Jones.

    Alice Eve’s wig is horrible (as many have pointed out), her dress is incongruous, and her shoes are further evidence that ankle boots need to be phased out. Though these might work with jeans.

    I initially didn’t hate Zoe Saldana’s outfit all that much (she’s so pretty that she can pretty much wear anything), but on closer inspection it’s not very flattering. The fabric looks much too thick and heavy for the cut and everyone is right about the belly-baring.

    Zachary Quinto: shoes are awful, and he would have looked better in a monochrome shirt not buttoned up all the way (and without those collar-buttons seeing that he’s not wearing a tie). But otherwise he and Pine are definitely the best-dressed of this lot.

  • The first picture of Alice Eve looks like a Baby Patsy Stone. She needs a BumpIt for her hair though….

  • Loving Zoe and Zach. I am WEEEEEPING for Simon.

  • turtleemily

    Captain Fine, is that gray in your beard?

    And no Karl Urban? Bored now.

  • Needs Moar Cumberbatch.

  • H2olovngrl

    I love me some Simon Pegg, but seriously, are those jeans, leggings, jeggings, what?

  • maggiemaybe

    Alice Eve was reminding me more of Julie Christie in Shampoo, but I can see Goldie in there too. Love the absent-minded professor look that Chris Pine is sporting. I think I need to go talk to him about my final grade…

  • Watts

    Why, why, why this little mini-trend of starlets cropping tops not designed that way? STOP THAT.

  • kimiakay

    Simon Pegg has such a smiling, happy face. It makes me smile just to look at him. Love his jacket. Zoe Saldana’s shoes do not go with her outfit and they are borderline ugly. What is with this trend for the heavy bootie shoes with summery dresses?

  • Whoops! I should have refreshed the page before I posted. My bad.

    • Violina23

      LOL no worries, bring on the geek love! 😉

  • Am I the only one seeing the condition of Chris Pine’s suit?! It looks like he’s been wearing it for a week. Like it would smell bad.

  • formerlyAnon

    Apparently, in the future men are shod to perform manual labor, stand long hours or run from pursuit. Women are hobbled so that movement is slow and/or painful.

    Oh wait. That’s NOW.

    Pine looks like he drank happy juice the rest didn’t quite get enough of; unless someone’s line of chat is really good, Pegg is the only one who’s gonna get asked up for “coffee.”

  • The dress is wearing Alice Eve, not the other way around.

  • gracedarling

    Polish your shoes, Zachary!!!

  • When I saw the smaller full-body shot of Zoe in the first photo, I was prepared to like her dress and it’s sassy belt. Then, in the second shot I realized her belt was made of *human flesh* and immediately changed my mind.

    Just say no to unnecessary middrift!

  • littlemissstrange

    Zachary Quinto is pure sex. Look at him in his leather sex jacket and his green army pants and his fucked-up shoes that lived through a war. THOSE SHOES FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY.

  • JauntyJohn

    1. “Alice Eve” is a spectacular name, and it works with anything from pale school teachers in the 19th Century to Sexbots from the year 2139. But that hair is… if people look at the styling on your hair and wonder if it’s a wig, then you have a problem. If people look at your wig and wonder if that’s your hair but you did something crazy to it, then you bought a good wig — but not a great one.
    2. Zoe. Swing-and-a-miss I’m afraid.
    3. Zachary. Yes. Very much yes. Great look and he owns it.
    4. Chris is dreamy, but I would have liked a richer hue to the blue.

  • Louise Bryan

    Hmm, Alice Eve plays Dr. Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness; Kirk’s one-time love interest, with whom he had a son.

  • ccm800

    Look boy stars! Chris Pine does the impossible – facial hair with no neck beard…WOW!

  • Is Alice Eve’s hair a wig? Surely that’s not her real hair.

    Mmm Chris Pine…
