Zoe Saldana was in the Dominican Republic for the “International Casandra Awards” last night.

Her father is from the Dominican Republic, so like Freida Pinto returning to Mumbai, this was a homecoming return for Zoe who lived there for 7 years.

The event was held at the National Theater in Santo Domingo where Zoe accepted her award for “Most Outstanding Artist Abroad Award”.

She looked stunning wearing an Amanda Wakeley Spring 2010 gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

Her cinnamon ombre draped gown was accented with a cocoa two-prong belt tied to her waist.

I love her look. Her gown has a sari-type feel to it due to the way it’s draped.

She kept her look effortless with a few bracelets and a wooden gold trimmed clutch.

The actress accepted her award speaking in Spanish.
