Zoe Saldana in Ulyana Sergeenko at UK ‘Guardians’ premiere: fug or fab?

Go ahead and yell at me, but I’ve never “gotten” Zoe Saldana’s style. I understand that she enjoys bizarre, intricate, overworked gowns and dresses. I understand that she uses big statement “looks” to stand out on a red carpet, and hey, it totally works. We usually end up talking about her specifically because of the fug, overworked dresses she wears and yes, that’s free publicity for her films. But I have to wonder… isn’t there an easier way? Like, with her figure, with her coloring, and her face, it shouldn’t be this f–king hard to find some styles that are actually flattering and beautiful rather than these “stunt pieces.”

So, with that in mind, here are some photos of Zoe at the London premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. She wore this Ulyana Sergeenko dress to the premiere which… is better than the orange barf she wore at the LA premiere. But that’s setting the bar pretty low. I don’t get the tiered ruffles on the hips. I don’t the “structure to nowhere” of the sleeves. I don’t get mixing chocolate brown silk with a black bustier. None of this makes any sense. Something nice: her hair and makeup look great.

I’m also including photos of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, who wore a simple purple velvet slipdress which is one of the best things I’ve seen on her. This could have skewed way too ‘90s, but I think she looks great (plus I’m a ‘90s girl). I’m also including a shot of Karen Gillan, wearing a dress that would have been so much cuter without the asymmetrical mullet.

    I adore that dress. It’s flattering, interesting, black… Perfect. I wish she wore her hair up and her makeup differently

  2. Macheath says:

    Zoe’s hair and make-up is so beautiful.

  3. Zee says:

    If Zoe’s dress was plain black instead of that brown/black mix it would have been perfect.

  4. Chaine says:

    The bustier top is lovely. But the sleeves and the bizarre hip-wrap have got to go!

    • detritus says:

      I really like the architecture of the bustier, but yes. down with the waist wrap and if the sleeves stoppedb efore the sheer, id be happy.

  5. Jenni says:

    To wear dress like this you need the right body and the right attitude. She has the body and that’s all. Basically the dress is wearing Zoe.

  6. Naddie says:

    Anna is looking greater than ever.

    • lannisterforever says:

      Love Anna’s look and I want her dress!

    • Oriane says:

      I want her shoes! I approve of proper closed shoes, the thin strappy sandals everyone is wearing on the red carpet these days look sooo basic – shoes are much more elegant!

      And Zoe’s dress is a bit of a mess, but I agree that she has great hair here!

  7. Trollontheloose says:

    I like it. It would have been better with the dress below the knees with the same fabric. Or even longer but it would have been too theatrical for the movie theme. I don’t hate it. Give it to me and I’ll rock it.

  8. fiorucci says:

    They’ll look really good. (Except Chris probably) Love the purple especially

    What did Groot wear?

  10. Bridget says:

    Fashion is an art form – it’s not just about what’s “pretty” today. Texture, craftsmanship, silhouette, design, innovation – those things matter. Zoe doesn’t always knock it out of the park, but she can be counted on to choose consistently interesting pieces. I liked the orange dress, and I like this one.

  11. TheOtherSam says:

    Love this interesting dress and love this look on her. Only a few could pull this off elegantly and she manages to do so.

  12. Susan says:

    Zoe herself looks amazing. Didn’t she just have another baby?

  13. Danielle says:

    I love this look on her. I think Anna and Karen, who look good as well.
