Zoe Saldana is the next big thing in my agenda. Not only she’s unearthly beautiful and appealing on screen, but she has that something that could make her big out there without sending her straight in the scandal pages too.
Mark Ecko’s Complex magazine brings Avatar’s Zoe Saldana on the December/January 2009/2010 cover. And I’m happy they did! (it’s a double cover issue, with the second cover held by Eminem) (the story continues right after the jump with more images and a behind the scenes video! You can see the gallery here!)
She made Star Trek and Avatar so far, two sci fi blockbusters (hopefully Avatar won’t be the flop everyone’s expecting it to be and James Cameron will deliver Titanic-ly!) so it was only natural that she’ll make a sci-fi-esque magazine shoot also. Complex is far from being shy when it comes to manipulating images for a designated purpose. And this issue, their main purpose is to suspend your breathing function while staring at Zoe Saldana. Or at least that’s my take on it!
And as I’ve said it before, Zoe reminds me so much of Thandie Newton, I can only hope she’ll get at least a similarly brilliant career also! The Complex photos look contemporary trendy, if we’re to consider shiny body armor pieces and thigh high boots a trend. Her extraordinary pantlessness, Lady Gaga will approve. Zoe poses like a true model and the set is glitzy enough to make it perfectly fit for Complex. How do you like Zoe Saldana’s December Complex? (you can check out the Eminem cover story here)
