WHERE & WHEN: “Blood Ties” 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival Premiere on May 20, 2013.
WEARING: Valentino dress, Christian Louboutin shoes & David Yurman jewelry.
MY VERDICT: There’s never a dull fashion moment when Zoe Saldana is around. There are times when she’s a risk-taker, and then the next thing you know she’s opting for pure, classic elegance. That’s exactly what happened at the Cannes Film Festival today where Zoe opted for a playful polka-dot skirt, colorblock top and colorful pumps at the photocall for her movie “Blood Ties”—only to hit the red carpet for the premiere in a lovely embroidered Valentino gown.
Zoe wore the blue-grey silk chiffon full length dress from the Fall 2013 collection with brocade embroidery throughout the sheer overlay, thick white panel straps, and a delicate strand of pearls that frame the top of cutout detail at the back of the dress. The design of the gown is refreshingly unique even though the silhouette is timeless.
She wore her long brunette tresses pulled off her face by a hair-made headband; this allowed Zoe to showcase her David Yurman pear-shaped drop earrings. A red matte lip was Zoe’s beauty choice for the second time today.
