Yea, Nay, Or Eh? The Ombré Goes On

-------

After more than a year of seeing little besides Avatar blue, we can’t blame Zoe Saldana for wearing anything but. The Dominican actress wore a lovely light orange in the DR last night to scoop up her Casandra Award for the most outstanding artist abroad. We loved her ombré gown by the English designer Amanda Wakeley (hat tip to Red Carpet Fashion Awards for the tough ID), which traded the drama of her Givenchy Oscar gown (another ombré look) for a slightly more streamlined, elegant look. The flowing drape really suits her, and here’s a cinched waist (unlike some we’ve noticed recently) we can get behind. She finished the look with little more than a gold bangle and a few rings, including one, unusually, on her thumb—almost a Na’vi touch. So what you do think? Is coral her color?

The Future Perfect At Calvin Klein Collection

-------

All season long, I’ve been craving for some designer to do real justice to the remarkable contribution James Cameron has made to popular culture with Avatar, the way that he treated a familiar story in a mind-bogglingly unfamiliar way. Maybe Italo Zucchelli’s new men’s collection for Calvin Klein is as close as I’ll get. Zucchelli transfigured a handful of menswear clichés with fabric technology so that they became something quite new. A suit is just a jacket and a pair of pants, after all, but cut them out of Mylar (which, according to Zucchelli, is supremely difficult to work with) and you’ve got yourself an outfit that has the eldritch sheen of a seagull plucked from an oil slick. The drift of the collection was texture and finish: the pebbling on leather, the ribbing on knits, and the combination of the two, like the brown leather blouson wiht the ribbed knit lapel. I don’t mean to suggest complication: A leather jacket and jeans was as straightforward an outfit as anything Zucchelli has ever proposed. But still, there is an elusive futuristic edge to everything he does. Once, I would have settled on Gattaca. This time, the dramatic outerwear suggested Lemmy Caution, the trenchcoat-wearing ‘tec in Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville. It went so well with the multilple mixes of The xx’s “Basic Space” that accompanied the show. The look—and the sound—of the future.

Style.com Feels The Love

-------

How’s this for a Love letter? To coincide with its already much discussed third issue—yes, that would be the one with the naked supermodel covers—the U.K.-based glossy has filmed a video valentine featuring a few good (half-naked) women. Created by visual effects artist James Lima (who also worked on a little movie called Avatar) and the mag’s own Katie Grand, this project aims to redefine the fashion film as we know it.

Style.com is thrilled to be premiering the full video this Valentine’s Day, February 14. In the meantime, here’s a brief trailer to whet your appetite (fashion fans will be pleased to note that the few clothes that do appear on screen are all by Prada).
