Style Star: Zoe Saldana
Hollywood is full of celebrities and socialites that have stellar style, but few can keep up with Zoë Saldana’s nearly perfect track record.
The 33-year-old actress’s style rap mixes classic femininity with an edge and is rarely seen unkempt. She maintains the gracefulness of a woman but with an undisputed attitude that says she’s not one to be messed with.
Saldana attended the Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion L.A. Sunday night in a blush Antonio Berardi frock. Consistent with her style, the design was a soft pink infused with bolder elements, like sculpted shoulders and cutouts. On the red carpet, the actress experiments with varying degrees of style that range from the ultra feminine, like the purple ruffled Givenchy she rocked at the 2010 Oscars, to structured and sleek, like the Roland Mouret gown she wore to the "Avatar" premiere in London. On top of that, she manages to pull off everything in between—a feat that even most A-list style stars can't claim.
Off the glamorous red carpet, Saldana still stuns in the latest trends, from jumpsuits to maxi dresses. The style icon even manages to make plain jeans and a t-shirt look effortlessly chic. Not only is she a successful actress with enviable killer style, Saldana is a do-gooder, even making an apron and cap look like it’s trendy while volunteering for the Easter For The Homeless event in Los Angeles.
Saldana likes to take chances with her appearance, often pushing the envelope to new extremes. Her overall style is uncannily and appropriately reflected in the roles she stars in. In "Columbiana", "Avatar" and "The Losers", Saldana is quite the opposite of the damsel in distress—she’s a fierce character who can stand her own ground.
While the star may not be as blatant as Gaga or as obvious an icon as Kate Moss, she is the epitome of underrated, down-to-earth cool. She’s a style chameleon that can make anything work for her. On top of that, she’s an award-winning actress for top-grossing films like"Avatar" and "Star Trek" and has secured the highly coveted role as model for Calvin Klein Underwear. What can’t this self identified “sci-fi geek who just happens to dress nice” do?
