Sporting a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci jumpsuit, the beautiful Zoe Saldana dons a smile as she covers the September issue of Gotham magazine.
With her new flick The Words co-starring ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper hitting theaters on September 7th, the actress dishes on fashion, the one piece of item she can’t live without and much more.
Saldana was interviewed by Zachary Quinto, while her spread was shot by Andrew Eccles.
On loving fashion from a young age: “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 the one piece of clothing she loves: “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.”
On other actresses that have a good fashion sense: “Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices.”
On next year: “Honestly, to continue growing in every aspect of my life because it’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy. I really want that to motivate me moving forward on every level.”
