Fug or Fab: Zoe Saldana in Altuzzara, With Bonus Roger Federer

I suppose this is sort of thematic:

You know, in the sense that she is laced, like a sneaker, and he… wears sneakers, professionally? I don’t know. It’s cuter than I thought it would be on her, but I don’t know that I think lacing ones maternity boobs into a suit jacket sounds all that comfortable. But what do I know? I didn’t have to wear it. Maybe it feels like sweet relief. Besides, I’m too busy ogling the Leaning Tower of R.Fed to think about it for much longer. Remember when he was a young Swiss phenom with hair like your sixth-grade bestie? How far he’s come. He had NO IDEA. No one did. I shall drink you in, sir, and then toast you and guzzle and ask for a refill.

Oh, but you should see Zoe’s shoes:

Oscars Fug or Fab Carpet: Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung and Versace

I’m going to start with the one I personally like better: the Prabal Gurung from the Vanity Fair party.

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

He’s used an extremely fussy, unedited, and dare I say it, deranged hand when designing for her in the past. But this is so elegant on her — it looks comfortable, it’s almost absurdly flattering, and it’s the kind of thing I imagine is very sad to take off because you don’t ever get to wear these things twice unless you’re planning a very posh afternoon scouring your tile counters and aren’t afraid of a little errant Soft Scrub.

I don’t actively dislike the Versace, either:

Well Played, Zoe Saldana in Altuzarra

She seems so happy to be pregnant — seriously, she smiled before, but I don’t feel like we ever saw so many teeth as we are lately.

She looks so great in this, too. The cut of it suggests that it’s a Regular Lady Dress that she’s using as maternity — the bust sits a smudge too high, right? – but I’m all for that. If it’s true that she’s pregnant with twins, I have BEEN THERE, and I applaud her for making this work so well because it is a huge self-esteem boost when you can do it. I had a friend who insisted I’d be in Crocs and Birkenstocks the whole time, and I DID NOT. I proudly wore heels right up until the day I went into labor, as if it were some dumb badge of honor. You take the victories where you can. So who cares where this is sitting on her chest, because she is gorgeous and glowing and BABIES! and I hope someday she can wear this again with a belt and a giant hat when she takes her kid(s) to a polo match or the beach or… anywhere. And if not, the line forms to the left of me for her “maternity” hand-me-downs.

Fugs and Fabs: The ALMA Awards

There’s a Charo at the end of this slideshow.

Well Played, Zoe Saldana in Preen

First of all: There are photos in which she looks far cheerier, never fear. But you can’t see her outfit in ANY OF THEM to which I have access, so smirky it is:

The print is kind of like Collegiate Photography Show On Crack, and the dress is all Prim Schoolgirl, and it turns out that marriage is going to be one for the ages. Who knew?

Fug or Fab: Zoe Saldana

This feels like half-robe, half-wrap dress.

But when you are pregnant, robe-lite wrap dresses can be a comfortable DELIGHT, so whatever; I have no beef with that, conceptually. But I think the Wonderbread color scheme on those four bits — two on the lapels, two on the tie — make it look ESPECIALLY like pajamas, and I end up feeling vicariously tired and wishing that someone would just excuse her and let her go home and put up her feet. She’d be welcome over here, but it won’t be really hopping until I’ve acquired those crackpot new Cappucino potato chips to try. I haven’t had those or Mango Salsa, but VMA/Emmy weekend is the time for salt binges for everyone except the attendees, and those flavors have a LOT of work to do on me to beat Bacon Mac & Cheese. All of which ties back to this post because…. I would maybe wear that dress on my couch while I’m sampling.
