Zoe Saldana rocks a satin jumpsuit with chiffon details from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci for the cover of GOTHAM Magazine’s September issue. With a photoshoot shot by Andrew Eccles, she sits for a Q & A with “Star Trek” co-star Zachary Quinto.
Here are the highlights:
On her first memory of fashion:
“My grandmother and great grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the ’60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn’t like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury; it was about art.”
On what she’s looking forward to in the next year:
“Honestly, to continue growing in every aspect of my life because it’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy. I really want that to motivate me moving forward on every level.”
On her favorite acting roles throughout her career: “Definitely Center Stage because it was the first. Haven because it woke me up to the craft of acting. When I was younger it kept hitting me in phases, and I kept growing and learning so much. By the time I made that movie, I felt like I was really beginning to understand acting as a vocation, and I could sense the impact that had on my process. From there, Avatar, for sure; it was a gift to get to play a character like that, to get to play like that in general.”
