“International Casandra Awards” – Zoe Saldana In Amanda Wakeley

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.

    Perfection once again. I love love LOVE the belt. I love this sense of a simple old-fashioned belt with an evening look, but very little celebs go for that. That’s why Zoe is so awesome and stylish.

    Whoever said Zoe wasn’t tall enough to wear the Alexander McQueen mini you suggested in your previous Final McQueen show post must be either out of their mind crazy, extremely short-sighted or both!

    She looks like a statuesque Amazon! I love that she is gorgeous but also equally humble and gracious. 🙂

      LOL…I thought that was strange too.

      • pascha March 19, 2010 at 09:48 #

        Lol I just noticed… Zoe even looks WAY taller than the model in the left pic!

        • whitestroke March 20, 2010 at 02:39 #

          She’s not as tall as models, but she’s really skinny, not busty and has proportionally very long legs, so she can pull off runway looks with no problem whatsoever.

    Zoe is beautiful – in a high fashion way (unlike Beyonce)! And, she has good taste. I mean, with some girls (such as Zoe, Kate Hudson, Sienna Miller, Alexa Chung, to name a few randomly), you feel that they own their looks and have strong fashion identities, whereas others just look like their stylists’ puppets, no matter how expensively they dress (such as Katie Holmes). Anyway … I noticed this model in the fall 2010 season, who also has roots in the Caribbeans and is beautiful in a similar way – Joan Smalls.

    WOW! I didn’t know she had latin roots! Now I love her even more. She looks STUNNING!! Plaese BDOTW!! I love when she’s leaving and says “pleeaaase!! turn on the air conditioning!! it’s too hot in here!”

    wow, Zoe as asual looking A-Friggin-MAZZING, Gosh this dress is gorgeous, she looks divine. I love the colour against her skin tone. The belt gives it such a great touch. This safari-chic look seems great on her. Make up is flawless. Zoe’s trademark smile is her best feature.

    BDOTW worthy!

    I love this dress in this color on her. I am so glad that she didn’t wear that necklace.

    Hi FC,

    Zoe always looks AMAZING!!! DO you know if she has a stylist or just impecable taste? I’m thoroughly impressed and blown away.

    • Fashion Critic March 18, 2010 at 22:32 #

      I would think she has a stylist.

      Many actresses would be to scared to wear that Givenchy Couture dress, so I think she has a lot to great personal style as well.

      • Marvel March 18, 2010 at 23:57 #

        Yeah she said on the red carpet of the Oscars that as soon as she and her stylist saw the dress they both loved it.

  9. Julia March 18, 2010 at 20:47 #

    Gorgeous. This is an amazing colour on her and I love the draping. BDOTW worthy, she is fast becoming a favourite of mine and I’m sure lots of other people too!

    • Beatriz Duarte March 18, 2010 at 21:43 #

      Yes, she is! Zoe has talent and style!

  10. Meg March 18, 2010 at 19:25 #

  11. Anu March 18, 2010 at 18:49 #

    Wow, I rarely post but this look is just amazing… even for Zoe who is always well-dressed.

  12. Leo March 18, 2010 at 18:11 #

    One of her best looks. Incredible dress. The belt gives it such a great touch. Plus the colour is perfect for her.

  13. ber March 18, 2010 at 17:47 #

    That color looks amazing on her.

  14. Stuti March 18, 2010 at 17:13 #

    She is my BDOTW. I am completely voting for her. Please include her FC?
