Zoe Saldana – 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards

I should definitely be working right now, as it’s getting really late, but as I eagerly await for the Oscar ceremony to kick off, with its highly anticipated Red Carpet, I feel that I should at least finish what I started.

Following Kate Beckinsale’s perfect appearance, Zoe Saldana was a close second favorite, as she took on the Red Carpet at the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards, on February 25. She showcased her amazing figure, in a Balmain Spring 2012 dress … mini dress that is.

The sexy floral number, with metallic gold print accents and structured shoulders, had a surprising feature in its opened back. Brian Atwood Zenith pumps in nude, styled the fun and lively dress.

With no accessories at sight, Zoe went for simple wavy curls as a hairstyle and finished the look with sheer glossy lipstick. I always love a bold Balmain look, but not everyone can pull it off; luckily, for Zoe that wasn’t an option.

New York Fashion Week – Prabal Gurung Fall 2012

When you start paying closer attention to fashion, until it becomes part of your daily routine, therefore part of your life, it is impossible not to feel its influence, at so many levels, even deep down, where everything you thought you knew, begins changing forms and colors. From admiring a handful of designers, you get to a point where you understand, there’s so much more out there, so many names, with so many great stories behind, so much yet to be discovered, and always a certain something, or someone that helps remove the curtain.

When I think about how amazing Prabal Gurung is now, two names instantly pop into my head : Sarah Jessica Parker and Zoe Saldana, both brand ambassadors by choice, both loving his bold and fresh aesthetics, both leading people towards a new obsession. For his Fall 2012 presentation, that took place during New York Fashion Week, Prabal Gurung revealed a display of deluxe form-fitting silhouettes.

Prabal-Gurung---Fall-2012

What I loved most about this collection: the body hugging silhouettes, of both sporty and glamorous looks; the dark and mysterious opening, that slowly evolved into a more light and delicate runway walk; the playfulness and softness of the dresses; the fitting pants; the return of the psychedelic prints from the Spring 2012 collection; the color palette of black, white, gold and electric blue.

Searching for the trends, I spotted cutouts, futuristic prints, ruffles and feathers, structured coats and capes, black leather gloves, all for a fashionable cold season.

My favorite looks of the collection, ranged form the sporty, yet stylish electric blue sweater, mixed with the black fitted pants and styled with black leather gloves (first look above), to the mid-length cut-out cocktail dress, in shades of white and gold, with metallic accents, seen bellow:

Straight hair, dramatic make-up in shades of blues, greens and purples (I loved the styling), triple-strap sandals, police hats, belts and sunglasses, were the accessories that emphasized the dramatic and atmospheric runway show.

Zoe Saldana – Golden Globes Week 2012 Kick Off

Don’t say I didn’t warn you at the beginning of the month that this is going to be a pretty busy time, for some major Red Carpet events. And as much as I’m trying not to make it my top kind of post these days, it’s still going to be a predominant topic on the blog.

Moving on, I would just like to add how much I enjoyed seeing Zoe Saldana at the Golden Globes Week 2012 Kick Off, as she was a glam vision in her Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012 black dress.

The ladylike calf-length black gown with an embellished neckline was successfully paired with the Brian Atwood Teresa Sandals, Martin Katz jewels and a silver Kara Ross clutch.

A classic, centered low bun, black liner and a bright orange lipstick finished the look.
