I now see what Olivier Rousteing is talking about when he said he was taking Balmain back to its couture days. The clothing now looks in harmony with the price range. I do miss all the rips, tears and endless amounts of denim, but couture is the soul of the brand so that is where it should be.
The 2012 Pre-Fall collection had tons of prints, color and of course the classic glitz. There was also no shortage of leather. I think the collection is really great. There are quite a few pieces that I find amazing. The leather pants above are just everything. Trouser pockets, check. Leather, check. Inseam-zipper and motorcycle stitching, double check. My other favorites would have to be the printed pajama pants, all the jackets, and the black long-sleeve dress. I love the graphic at the waist. I would love to see that dress on Zoe Saldana or Kate Bosworth. You can see the full collection below.
Zoe Saldana was seen making her way down the street after having lunch with a girlfriend. Earlier in the week, Zoe played good Samaritan as she came to the aid of a woman who was in a car accident. Zoe called the police and waited with her for them to come. I always like hearing good things about celebrities!
For her lunch date, Zoe wore a pair of Cult of Individuality The Teaser skinny jeans and a pair of combat boots. I think Zoe’s laid back style is really casual and understated, but she always looks amazing on the red carpet! Buy these jeans for $110 at Cult of Individuality.

Zoe Saldana was spotted leaving lunch at Good Earth Cafe in Studio City. She and a friend chatted as they waited for their cars. Although we haven’t seen Zoe on the big screen recently, she has three projects in the works, including filming the sequel to Avatar, Avatar 2. I had no idea they were making a sequel!
Zoe wore a pair of J Brand’s corduroy 1266 Ali jeans in Vintage Sailor. I like how she paired them with brown and red accessories, the whole outfit works very well together. You can buy these jeans from JBrandjeans.com for $218.
