The Annual CFDA Awards honoring designers held at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York on Monday featured some amaze outfits and a few that should’ve stayed home.
Zoe Saldana looked sheerly divine in a slate blue Calvin Klein dress. Molly Sims was iconically cute in a 50s inspired Marilyn Monroe print dress and even though Heidi Klum’s dress reminded us of Reynolds Wrap, she still looked amaze!
As for the celebs that should’ve stayed home and their outfits that should’ve stayed on the rack: Blake Lively, you know Blindie loves you, but an orange tan in a neon pink dress is not hot unless you’re Tara Reid; and Lake Bell, the shoulders on that dress look like football gear.

The two stars, who reportedly share a topless makeout scene that Pine says will go down in Trekkie history, look beyond delicious in the latest issue.
J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek prequel is out May 8.Read More
The stars of the highly anticipated sci-fi prequel Star Trek stepped out for a group photo call in Paris, France Tuesday–but no one shined more than New York-bred beauty Zoe Saldana.
One of our fave Ga Ga Girls (who’s playing Lt. Uhura) hit the red carpet with director and producer J.J. Abrams and hunky costars Eric Bana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine.
Of her Trekkie following, she recently told Esquire, “I’ve already had a [fan] come up to the door of my house. And I had a driver for another movie who brought all of his Star Trek memorabilia with him. He opened the trunk and there was this shrine. He had stacks of pictures he wanted me to sign. He ended up being the nicest guy, but it definitely freaked me out at first.”Read More
Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana posed for a high-flying circus spread in the April issue of In Style (coincidentally their “color issue” ha!), where she discussed how growing up in New York and the Dominican Republic influenced her style.
“I learned to embrace color, drama and flair,” the actress, who plays Lieutenant Uhura in J. J. Abrams’s much-anticipated prequel, said. “It’s my nostalgia for a very important time in my life.”
Saldana also revealed her dancing roots (she got her start as a broke Off-Broadway dancer; and remember Center Stage?): “I got so much out of being a dancer. The stillness of it. The discipline. The dedication.”Read More
In honor of the soon-to-be box office hit I Love You, Man and the backdrop of the interracial romance between Rashida Jones and Paul Rudd, Blindie revisited the black woman-loving-white man film romances in our time.
Here’s our stab at listing the Top 5 interracial onscreen couplings that not only entertained us, but sent us a message:
1. Flirting: Shy Danny Embling (Noah Taylor) falls for Thandiwe Adjewa (Thandie Newton) and their romance blossoms over the course of the school year in this 1991 cult classic. Danny could’ve easily fell for Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman in the flick, but he opted for the Kenyan spark plug!
2. The Bodyguard: The 1992 hit film starred Whitney Houston as a demanding diva that reluctantly hires Kevin Costner to help protect her from a psychotic stalker who wants her dead. Costner’s protective ways helps him fall in love with the diva he’s protecting.
3. Corina, Corina: The 1994 comedy with heart followed housekeeper Corina Washington (Whoopi Goldberg) as she helps young Molly cope with the death of her mother. Corina definitely helps Molly out of her muteness, but it’s the sparks between Corina and Molly’s widower father (Ray Liotta) that really shook things up.
4. Guess Who: The 2005 take on the 1967 classic featured Zoe Saldana bringing her white fiance (played by Ashton Kutcher) home to her skeptical black father (played by the late Bernie Mac). In the end, love conquers all–and daddy accepts her white boy!
5. Something New: The 2006 mainstream romantic comedy found Sanaa Lathan’s Kenya McQueen trying something new during a blind date with a hunky landscaper Brian (Simon Baker), who happens to be white. And who couldn’t fall in love with a man that helps you embrace your natural curl?
Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana may be the lone female on J.J. Abram’s Enterprise, but she admits to not having watched the original series. Sorry Trekkies!
“I never saw that,” Saldana, who plays Uhura, said in a recent interview with BlackFilm.com. “I was not a fan until now and I have so much admiration for what they did, and how much the series continues to grow after 45 years and I had the honor of meeting Nichelle Nichols.”
Of her meeting with Nichols, Saldana reveals that Nichols told her she named Uhura herself.
“I was able to sit down with her and she told me the whole story of how Uhura came to be and where they were going with her character,” Saldana said. “But it all fell into place the moment she walked into the door and auditioned for the part.”
As for the Uhura’s famous costume, Saldana said, “The moment everything came together from the hair, the costume, being on the set, and then you start to feel, ‘Okay, this is real. This is amazing and fun’.”Read More
