Zoe Saldana In Gucci – LACMA Art + Film Gala 2013

Zoe Saldana In Gucci - LACMA Art + Film Gala 2013

After her meh Chloe dress earlier in the week, Zoe Saldana was back to her best for the third annual LACMA Art + Film Gala held at LACMA in California yesterday evening, honouring filmmaker Martin Scorcese and artist David Hockney.

The actress sizzled wearing a custom Gucci gown, which appears to be a Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 hybrid frock, featuring sheer, black and lime-green body contouring panels.

She styled her gown with sandals, a matching satin clutch and Gucci jewels, including a chunky bejewelled cuff. Tumbling curly tresses and smoky eyes completed the look.

I couldn’t help thinking of a similar dress worn by Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this year because both dresses feature ‘I’m going commando” sheer sides.

This put a lot of you off Gwynie’s Antonio Berardi gown. Do you feel the same with this look?

    This is better than Gwyneth’s gown and I adore Zoe Saldana BUT
    I can’t and will never get on board with any dress that clearly shows lack of underwear. Unnecessary and just not classy
    (which is unfortunate because Zoe is usually such a classy lady)
    So I’m obviously in the minority here but can never get on board with this. And while she makes it work better than most can, I will still place it in the Tacky bin

    There are some looks that only Zoe can pull off, and this is definitely one of them, as usual, perfection!

    I wanted to see her in color!!!! A gown in that green would have been amazing. However this is totally boring and even that sheer detailing doesn’t save it. She can do so much better.

    Love, love, love.

    Zoe is better than this and has done better. A shame, the contouring creates a gorgeous silhouette and the dress is less incoherent than Gwyneth’s. But those sides — no, no, a thousand times, no.

    Hated Gweneth’s one, adore this one. I think the sheer is much better on Zoe because the panels are narrower and not showing quite so much butt cheek.

    • CreoleLady November 3, 2013 at 22:13 #

      You make an excellent point about placement of the sheer parts, less cheek. And given that the contrast of between her skin and the sheer panels is not as high as with Gwyneth, I almost gave Zoe a pass. Although in the end I couldn’t, I def see why you adore the look.

      So true.

  8. Leo November 3, 2013 at 21:01 #

    You have to be a certain kind of girl to pull this off, and Zoe is that fearless fashion girl. Luv it.

  9. tod November 3, 2013 at 19:15 #

    She just somehow wears the sheer sides much better than Gwyneth. Thumbs up from me!

  10. Magdalena November 3, 2013 at 18:59 #

    Well, I liked Gwyneth’s Antonio Berardi look, and I like this one on Zoe too!, the only thing i don’t like from Zoe’s look is the hair, wish it was sleeker 🙂

    • dee November 4, 2013 at 14:09 #

      I agree about the hair. She still looks gorgeous.

  11. Christine November 3, 2013 at 18:59 #

    The dress is interesting!

  12. Sharon November 3, 2013 at 17:40 #

    This dress is light years better than Gwyneth’s look. Zoe looks sexy without being inappropriate.

  13. Gianmarco November 3, 2013 at 17:34 #

    OhMyGod she’s GORGEOUS, she looks like a Snake Princess.

  14. Nat39 November 3, 2013 at 17:20 #

    The dress instantly reminded me of Gwyneth’s Antonio Berardi look. Zoe is gorgeous, but this is simply not a tasteful placement of sheer panels. Thumbs down from me.

    • Nat39 November 3, 2013 at 20:03 #

      …and while it maybe much more presentable than Gwyneth’s, it’s still not a very good look – the sheer panels, the awful lime-green panels…doesn’t impress me.

    • EmmaWoodhouse November 4, 2013 at 14:43 #

      I am in total agreement. Just not classy. A no from me.

  15. Cecilia November 3, 2013 at 16:23 #

    I happen to like the sheer sides. She looks amaze!

  16. pinksugar November 3, 2013 at 15:46 #

    While I am not a fan of this dress (way too much going on for my taste) it is leaps and bounds classier than that mess Paltrow tried to pull off. In fact I didn’t even think of that dress when I saw this one. Zoe has the grace to pull this off where GP never could.

  17. Iva November 3, 2013 at 15:39 #

    I don’t associate this dress with the one worn by Gwyneth Paltrow.
    This is just stunning!

    • Charlotte November 3, 2013 at 16:32 #

      Exactly. Paltrow’dress was so tacky, it’s not the case here. She looks great and the sheer sides are sexy, not tacky.

      • Denise November 4, 2013 at 09:52 #

        Totally agree. That’s the vibe I get too. Mysterious and sexy, sensational and a BDOTY contender for me.

    • KatieKate November 4, 2013 at 01:49 #

      Me neither. I see the comparison, but to me there is none. Zoe pulls this sexy look of effortlessly. Gwyneth looked tryhard and unconvincing. I love this look. BDOTW, easily!

    • kane November 4, 2013 at 09:43 #

      Wouldn’t have thought of it either! If anything it’s closer to all the ubiquitous hour glass-illusion-dresses for me, but if so, this one puts a brilliant twist on the concept and Zoe pulls it off splendidly. Probably BDOTE for me, if not more.

    She’s a fashion goddess – AMAZING!!!

  19. Derro November 3, 2013 at 15:34 #

    BDOTY contender for me.

    Head to toe perfection.
