Zoe Saldana arrived to the London premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness in bold fashion. The actress wore a black and white silk, geometric dress from Vionnet with an open back and beaded detail on the front.
But with the windy weather and the numerous folds of her skirt, Zoe, 34, needed some help keeping it in place as she walked the white carpet. Luckily her hair was in firm placed, styled into a wavy side updo and just a touch of red lipstick to add some colour to the monochrome outfit.
The Star Trek star was joined at the premiere by co-stars Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban, Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve. But as they lined up for a group photo, the actress needed her co-stars help to keep her dress in check.
Benedict, Zachary and Alice all tried to help Zoe with her gown while Chris Pine looked on with concern. Eventually they managed to keep the folded skirt sections in place and could pose together near the ginormous Starfleet logo.
Alice, 31, opted for a more straightforward outfit, wearing an Ermanno Scervino suede, strapless dress with a black waisted belt that stood out from the material’s natural tan colour. She pulled her blonde hair back into an elegant bun and she had applied a smoky-eye look. The cast have been travelling the world on the promotional tour for the second Star Trek film from J. J. Abrams. Zoe, Simon, Chris, Zach and Karl all reprise their roles as Nyota Uhura, Scotty, James T. Kirk, Spock and Bones, while Alice is the latest addition to the Starship Enterprise as Dr. Carol Marcus.
Benedict joins Star Trek as the villain John Harrison, also known as Khan. The second movie in the updated sci-fi franchise follows Kirk, Spock and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise who come across an unstoppable force of terror from within Starfleet. It’s up to the Captain Kirk to boldly go into a war-zone world to capture this one man weapon of mass destruction. And the Trekkies were certainly out in their hundreds at the premiere in Leicester Square, lining the streets as they tried to catch a look at the star-studded arrivals.
But the women weren’t the only stars making a fashion statement on Thursday night. Chris Pine looked like he just stepped off Saville Row in a three-piece suit complete with polka dot handkerchief that matched his purple tie. The 32-year old actor also sported a tidy beard with flecks of grey, no doubt for a character in his next film.
Simon Pegg wore a grey suit too but his colour palette was based in blue. A far cry from the Spaced character that launched his career, Simon, 43, looked every bit the Hollywood star. The other guests adding some star dust to the night were actor/directors Noel Clarke and Dexter Fletcher. Bo Bruce features on the soundtrack of the movie, but looked more like a Klingon than a celebrity guest on the night.
Zachary Quinto, 35, chose a navy blue three-piece suit, with his hair cut into a trendy retro do unlike the bowl-cut Spock sports. Karl Urban looked business-like in his pinstripe suit with white shirt and red tie. But it wasn’t just Starfleet in attendance, as the cast was joined by the writer Damon Lindelof, who has worked with Abrams for a number of years, including on TV series Lost. Kimberley Wyatt, Dakota Blue, Linzi Stoppard and Tanya Burr also arrived in colourful fashion, while Stephen Fry, John Bishop and Al Murray kept it suited and booted.
