Berlin fashion week is now in full swing, and Calvin Klein threw a fashion show and epic party to celebrate the occasion. (A few Teutons can be forgiven for being distracted by the Germany/Spain World Cup game, which the brand screened at the fête.) As you’d expect, plenty of house favorites, like newly signed face of Calvin Klein Underwear, Zoe Saldana, and Diane Kruger, who wore Calvin Klein Collection to the Met ball this year, were on hand. The dress code? All Calvin, of course. Saldana wore a pale green cutout CKC dress with the platform, contrast-heel pumps Francisco Costa showed for Resort. Kruger, on the other hand, went even more classic-Calvin minimal in a sleeveless white mini-shift and towering, lug-soled platform sandals. So who wore it best? Do you like Zoe’s edgier, of-the-moment look, or do you prefer Diane’s pared-down, old-school chic?
Of the hundreds of gowns at this week’s Met ball, the most striking were also the most restrained. Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger looked chic in unadorned Calvin Klein Collection gowns; ditto Jessica Stam in long-sleeved Rachel Roy. Plenty of minimal eveningwear could be found on the Fall runways, too. “Less is more these days,” Yigal Azrouël told us. “People are tired of all the froufrou and are just craving simplicity.” The designer turned out long, sleek dresses notable for how covered up they were, as did Antonio Berardi and Andrew Gn. At Stella McCartney and The Row, meanwhile, hemlines were raised, but the silhouettes were just as streamlined.

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?
