It’s galactic glam on the ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ red carpet
If the premiere of “Star Trek: Into Darkness” is any indication, high style will be alive and well in the 23rd century. The film’s cast and celebrity supporters were in full galactic glam at Tuesday night’s premiere. Zoe Saldana chose a nude silk embroidered dress with tiered silk chiffon from Rodarte’s fall and winter 2013 collection (accessorized with a white and gold hand-knit Rodarte cardigan). Jennifer Morrison was a constellation unto herself in a baby blue geometric sequin jumpsuit from the spring and summer 2013 collection of Edition by Georges Chakra, and Alice Eve beamed down to the planet’s surface in a futuristic gold embroidered sheath dress with black silk knit paneling from the pre-fall 2013 Zuhair Murad RTW collection.
Prabal party: Ginnifer Goodwin, Hailee Steinfeld and Zoe Saldana were among the well-heeled in-crowd at a Monday night dinner hosted by Vogue magazine and MAC Cosmetics in honor of designer Prabal Gurung. Among the things we learned over pre-dinner cocktails? That Hailee Steinfeld’s older brother Griffin is a NASCAR driver. [All The Rage]
