Everyone Wants to Be… Zoe Saldana or Karen Gillan at the “Guardians of the Galaxy” Photocall

Posted on July 28, 2014

Breezy and soft, fierce and colorful, maternal and sexy. These two ladies are offering up a whole array of messages in their styles and they both look amazing.

We just love that they both look so different from each other and yet they’re both projecting that quiet sort of confidence that good-at-their jobs celebriies can pull off in that “Be Me or Do Me” kind of way. We wouldn’t suggest one change for either look. You go and get it, ladies.

    Yay!! They’ve both missed the mark so often lately I was worried they’d lost it. But it seems Karen’s figured out the new ‘do and Zoe is figuring out the bump (no more apron gowns, okay dear?) and all is right with the world.

    My once growing crush on Karen Gillan is now fully formed.

    • Coleen

      I heart her intensely.

    • WendyD

      She is just so gorgeous and so funny. Love her forever.

  • formerlyAnon

    I love Saldana’s shoes SO MUCH and Gillan’s dress SO MUCH. Saldana’s dress is good but doing something unflatteringly droopy at the waist, & Gillan’s shoes are fine but not as shit-kicking in a retro mod way as I’d like them to be.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Those shoes!!!

  • Judih1

    not sure if I like the color of Karen’s dress with her hair color. Cute dress though. Zoe looks just bland to me – except the shoes

  • KT

    That’s the best Zoe’s looked in a long time. She looks simply sublime, love the whole thing.

    This is definitely a better look for Karen than we’ve seen as of late, but I’m still not in love with it. The leather collar just looks like such an obnoxious little affectation that I can’t get behind it. The color is great on her though, and I’m digging the shoes, too. Not loving the hair here.

    • demidaemon

      I’m with you on the leather collar.

  • crash1212

    They both look fabulous!

  • Thomas

    Karen Gillan is adorable, but I think this dress might go better with Emma Stone’s coloring since she’s not a natural redhead. Either that or I’m just thinking it because we’ve seen Emma wear this color before.

    Zoe looks cute, but it’s kind of bland and it looks like her bra is peeking through.

    ETA: Now I feel special because I think my hair is the exact same shade of red as Karen’s.

    • formerlyAnon

      That is a head-turner of a hair color. Use it wisely!

      • Thomas

        Thanks! 🙂

    • alyce1213

      Lucky you!

  • lundibleu

    I wouldn’t have picked that colour for Karen, but it really works. And it looks better on her than the model.

    They do both look fabulously confident, and that sells the looks.

  • misstressofsylar

    How many puppies would I need to murder to get Karen’s skin?or can I sell my soul instead? OTOH, funny how after announcing shes pregnant did we see Zoe’s old fierceness again. Welcome back Ms. Saldana!

  • Mr. J.

    They both look great, and the color that Karen’s wearing…..YES.

  • kimmeister

    If those are black pumps, then I apparently have no idea what the definition of a pump is.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I like everything here, most of all Zoe’s shoes. Want.

  • Brittney P

    They look absolutely incredible. Love Gillan’s hair like woah.

    • alyce1213

      Gahd I wish my hair would do that.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Karen and Zoe serving legs for days… so fierce.

  • MilaXX

    Zoe is managing to look chic and pregnant which is not an easy thing to do in Hollywood. Karen has hit that sweet spot of the exactly right pieces for her body shape and personality. These ladies look great and they know it.

  • Kelly

    Zoe looks kind of bland to me here, but Karen . . . wow. My favorite look of the day.

  • thesevenendless

    So I’m remembering something my mom told me; when a woman is pregnant, it first begins to show in their breasts (I remember when Angelina was pregnant with the twins, she just looked at Angelina in that brown tie-dye dress and says she was definitely knocked up). Is that true? You can definitely tell with Zoe, but isn’t she kind of an exception because she’s naturally flatter in the chest area?

    • julnyes

      *Not All Women* but a lot do get fuller breasts early in the pregnancy. My sister is still bitter ten years later that pregnancy didn’t give her any bump in her cup size.

  • Imasewsure

    As usual I’m not feeling Zoe at all… Love love that bright fierce look on Ms Karen though but I wish she rocked those kick ass boots too… Fantastic hair and makeup!

  • nannypoo

    They both look great, but I do not understand how a person wearing two little random-looking rings can be said to be “accessorized”.

  • Sophie

    I would suggest getting away from the glass table or whatever this is in the second to last picture. I looks funny, but it isn’t exactly flattering to her legs. Love the dress on Karen Gillan.

  • marlie

    I think they both look great. Zoe’s shoes are killer, and the little peek of lace of her bra actually works with the lace at the hem of her skirt. This is definitely a “do not try this at home” look. And Karen looks adorable too. Great color for her, her hair looks great, and those are the perfect shoes for the look.

  • Janet B

    Karen – yes!
    Zoe – meh

  • Anna

    Personal bests so far for them during this poledance. Well done ladies.

  • PastryGoddess

    Their skin looks amazing. I’d kill for skin like that

  • dulcian

    Aww, Zoe looks a little tired and morning sickness-y. But her dress is tres chic!

  • demidaemon

    I love Zoe’s look unreservedly, but I have a small quibble with Karen’s in the leather collar. It just seems off.

  • Dino Bonačić

    Hollywood stars!

  • God bless Karen Gillan (whomever she is) for not letting any stylist slather her in orange “tan.”

  • Karen’s dress color paired with her hair color are giving me LIFE.

  • Diane Iafrate

    They look so polished. Gorgeous!

  • Deac82

    I wish more ladies would wear Chloe on the red carpet. It has such a confident ease about it.

  • suzq

    I think the Chloe outfit looks horrible. It looks sloppy on the model for no good reason and bunchy on Zoe because it’s not cut for maternity wear.

  • gitchygitchymama

    a delicate necklace on one and a nice earring or bracelet on the other would have finished it nicely.

  • gefeylich

    Want to be Saldana – oh, yes, especially when she looks so pretty and relaxed. Utterly reject Gillan and her Jimmy Neutron hairdo, always.

  • PinkyK

    Karen looks great! Love the hair!

  • Jellybeanz

    I miss my Amelia Pond! I’m so glad crossing over to movies is working out for her, though. I’m looking forward to seeing her bald and blue on the big screen.

  • RutGot

    I’m not crazy about either of those dresses. I don’t like that underslip coming out from Zoe’s dress and I’m not loving the shape or the collar of Karen’s. I think they’re both meh.
