The Sundance Film Festival is always a great opportunity for celebrity watching.
The dress codes vary for film festivals worldwide. Cannes, for example, radiates glamour and glitz, and an underdressed person simply will not be allowed in.
But Sundance style is different. Since it is held during the winter in the mountains of Utah, a person attending simply needs to dress warmly and safely. Even the evening parties rarely reach black tie status. We can’t have our famous artists
slipping and falling all over the place, can we?
For those of us who enjoy star gazing, this is a treat. We get to see how our favorite celebrities dress when they need to stay warm, but still want to look cute.
Enduring Style Choices
Color palettes come and go in the fashion world. And while there’s certainly nothing wrong with hues like regatta, puce, or orange sky (what…?) that add some vibrancy to your wardrobe, there are some timeless color combinations that rise above fashion trends.
Case in point: black and white. This combo is always popular for everything from red carpet style to laid-back Sundance style.
She Wore It Best
Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion changes, but style endures.”
When enduring style meets classic black and white coloring, crush-worthy wardrobes are born.
Looking through last winter’s Sundance Film Festival attendees, it is a wearer of black and white that becomes our Celebrity Style Crush: Zoe Saldana.
Zoe’s style choices are remarkable for two reasons:
1. She’s unbelievably lovely, so everything seems to look good on her.
2. Classic black and white fashion styles work for her giving her timeless appeal.
Coco Chanel also said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” With her slender frame, stunning features, natural poise, and classy presentation, Ms. Saldana definitely meets the standard!
When Zoe isn’t attending public functions, she still opts for a black and white fashion styles with striking success.
Sharp dressed girl is our Zoe, don’t you think?
How Does This Affect Us?
The press spends a lot of time commenting on celebrities’ clothing choices. Sometimes, the media sounds like it thinks people’s personal wardrobe choices are all that is important in the world.
How Zoe Saldana dresses is entirely her business, but—let’s be honest here—we like to admire classy, beautiful women. And we definitely like to get ideas from how they dress!
Whether you’re doing yourself up in casual Sundance style, putting together business looks, or going out to paint the town red, make sure you have a few crisp white and rich black pieces in your closet. When in doubt, they always work!
