The always-gorgeous Zoe Saldana glamorously graces the cover of Gotham magazine’s September issue.
Inside, the actress talks fashion and even recounts her ancestors’ contribution to her fashion awareness. “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.”
Saldana also talked about her favorite fashion pieces. “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 actress went on to mention colleagues whose fashion sense she loves. “Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices.”
