Zoe Saldana is killing Gotham's cover!!!
The seksi actress graces the cover of the magazine's September issue looking statuesque while flashing her pearly white and lustrous chocolate locks.
For the shoot, Miz Saldana rocks a beautiful red Lanvin dress, a velvet Giorgio Armani suite, and luxurious Chanel tweed coat while sharing her favorite designers and passion for fashion.
Here are some highlights:
On her favorite designers:
“Well, Prabal Gurung is one of my closest friends. We came up at the same time in New York, so he and I were sort of parallel in our trajectory, and we bonded so much because he is a very beautiful person and he felt similar to me. He is an artist, a true artist. I see his art, and I just truly believe in it. It really touches me.
But then, I can also have that same kind of love for classic designers whom I have never met and whom I may never have the chance to. The designers that I love? Chanel , Gucci, Versace, Halston, Balmain, Ralph Lauren, Alaia.”
On growing up with fashion:
"My grandmother and great-grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the ‘60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn’t like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury, it was about art."
On her favorite piece of clothing:
"There’s this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself."
The knockout surely took the art of fashion and ran with it because she stays looking fresh to death.
And of course it doesn't hurt to have Mr. Gurung as one of her besties, right?!?
