I remember it like it was yesterday — I spotted Fabcon Zoe Saldana at all the front rows of New York Fashion Week and at all the cool parties. Who's that girl? Almost two years later, Zoe is on fire. She's maintained the same polished sense of style, but has kicked it up a few futuristic notches. Of course, the actress can play it sweet too — check her out in femme Chloé — but her signature style is quickly becoming sultry and futuristic, a la this sequin snake Pucci dress. Click on to see more Zoe and my picks for what she would wear. Oh, and if you haven't yet, check out Beyonce: What Would She Wear?
Talk about eye-catching —I'm having a hard time looking away! This Vladimir Kagan Daybed (price not available) is built from Walnut slab, which is augmented with Lucite arms and legs. I am absolutely in love with the velvet Pucciesque original upholstery. What about you? Can you dig it? Or is way too groovy for you? (Oh, and for more groovy designs, check out my Old or New Design game!)
Peter Dundas' Fall collection for Pucci, his first as the house's creative director, got flack for its uncanny similarities to Balmain's Spring '09 collection. But the criticism didn't seem to bring him down because his resort line, inspired by the sea, remains energetic. "The Pucci girl represents joy, energy (and) fun," Dundas recently said. If you look closely, you'll see Pucci's signature Palio print, but it's not as obvious as when Matthew Williamson was head.
June. Junio. Giugno. Juin. Juni. There you have it in five languages. "It" being my favorite month — ever. Seriously, it's the beginning of Summer, the sun has come out to play, and I'm feelin' fine. June is also a prime month for me because of the super June sales! Though I usually already have my Summer stock by now, one can always use more tanks, sandals, and swims. Interestingly, this month's musts are all little sparkly things, a couple pairs of pants, and my new baby: my very first non-vintage Bottega! Feels like butta.
When Zoe Saldana wore Pucci's Fall '09 beaded snake dress to the Star Trek premiere, she melted my heart. Or, shall I say, she electrocuted it. Her Brian Atwood Wicked shoes made everything even hotter. Sharon Stone must have seen the effect the dress had on Zoe, because she took the blue version with her to the Cannes Film Festival. She wore her dress with matching blue strappy sandals and a gold clutch. Both actresses pulled off Peter Dundas's galactic design, but who wore it better?
Pucci was born to be wild. Even the name is fun to say. Matthew Williamson has since departed the house, but what he left was a sizzling Summer collection. Green and blue psychedelic prints abound, with the occasional flirtatious burst of pink. Then there's the one technicolor surprise that has already inspired a party outfit. All these worn by one flexible model has me wondering: Is it Summer yet?
Here is singer Ciara looking right at home on the red carpet in her Pucci dress designed by new creative director Peter Dundas. It's long, fitted, and black — almost Morticia Addams-style — but has white panels on both sides and some sequins up top. And check out that huge keyhole in the back. Do you love or hate?
