Like any good geek, this past Friday I went to see the new Star Trek movie; I really enjoyed it! I’m not going to spoil the plot if you’re planning to go see it, but I will say there was quite a bit of polyester involved.
The nerd in me would like to give props to the costuming department for updating the Starfleet uniform so nicely into the 21st century… then the rest of me tells the nerdy part to shut up and to just enjoy how damn good Zachary Quinto looks in it– even if he has pointy ears.
But really, trekkies –for better or worse– are some of the most observent people on the planet. The fans who re-create the props and costumes are so detail oriented they put the masses to shame. So, I wonder how they would feel if they noticed a few pieces for the Spring/Summer 2009 runway that appear to have some old school Trek inspired pieces?
Key elements in the retro space-style seem to be high necklines, interesting texture and primary colors.
Not to mention… the new cast is hot! Check out Zoe Saldana, the new Lieutenant Uhura, rocking the premiere in this Prabal Gurung get-up.
And the new Spock, Zachary Quinto, graced GQ magazine last month, modeling raincoats.
