Zoe Saldana is promoting her new film ‘The Words’ and is covering the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. She talks about a variety of different topics, from her first memory of fashion to her favorite piece of clothing.
On her first memory of fashion, Saldana says "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."
She also talks about her favorite piece of clothing that she also happens to own, and says it’s an Azzedian Alaia dress . "There's this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself."
Unfortunately, ‘The Words’ has not done well at the box office, despite receiving average reviews and strong performances from Saldana and Bradley Cooper. Saldana is set to soon go into preparation for the Avatar sequel.
