Zoe Saldana In Valentino – “Colombiana” LA Screening

Zoe Saldana made a swift welcome return to the red carpet last night for the “Colombiana” LA Screening.

On her last outing wearing Balmain there was a 50/50 love-hate divide.

I’m sure this salmon leather Valentino halter dress will get 100% approval.

This sexy mini dress has delicate lace panels on the back and a gathered detail on the waist.

I love her beige accessories which included Christian Louboutin pointy pumps and a Salvatore Ferragamo woven clutch with gold detailing.

Even though her dress stuns on its own, she opted for a pair of bedazzling Irene Neuwirth rose fold flower earrings and a matching Irene Neuwirth rose gold bracelet set with large rose cut peach moonstone to complete her look.

Redemption has never looked so pretty.

Which look would you put up for BDOTW?

Balmain or Valentino?

    i like the valentino over the balmain but frankly she looks better in a pair of jeans and a great top. these haven’t proved her strongest outings on the red carpet.

    Valentino over Balmain most definitely! This dusty rose color looks amazing with her skin. Love the neutral, but not black, accessories!

    I love the jewelry choice! The dress is meh, but the color is quite pretty.

    A head to toe PERFECTION!
    Love absolutely everything about it – the color, the fit, the gathered detail on the waist, the shoes, the lovely jewellery, the hair, the clutch… – everything!!!
    I believe we are actually looking at this week BDOTW potential winner.

    This is head to toe beauty……the Balmain however, eugh.

    What a nice use of lace with leather! The scrumptious color and distinctive accessories add pizzazz. Am liking pointy-toed pumps these days (down with hooves, lol). Much prefer this look over the Balmain.

    Valentino, please.

  8. Rashmi August 25, 2011 at 17:44 #

    Love the dress!! But do not like the jewelllery at all..

  9. justme August 25, 2011 at 17:21 #

    Valentino by far though I like it, I don’t love it.
    She looks great but something feels safe.

  10. Jones19 August 25, 2011 at 17:04 #

    Now this is more like it! Love this look.

    I think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world and this is the look that lets her glow. I love the dress on her, she makes the colour work and absolutely adore each and every piece of her accessories plus her lipstick is perfect – it’s one of my fav colours.

    i need need need need that purse!!!

    she’s so prettyyyy!!! defintiely the Valentino!

  13. Rebecca Z August 25, 2011 at 15:45 #

    Valentino absolutely. This is a great look–a great recovery from the sheer curtains that got added to the Balmain dress.

    since i did not like the shoe choice in the Balmain outfit i have to go with this look.

    It’s stunning and i love the jewelry especially. So delicate. The only thing i am not that impressed with are the shoes, but they work fine.

    All in all a great look for her.

  15. ash August 25, 2011 at 15:31 #

    She looks good but I`m just really over leather dresses..

  16. Elaine2 August 25, 2011 at 15:31 #

    I vote for Valentino, too! Great dress, beautiful on her……… (she should have worn some of the gorgeous Valentino shoes though…. :-))

  17. dee August 25, 2011 at 15:14 #

    LOVE!!!! This is so much better than the Balmain. I think the Balmain outfit was a little overwhelming on her. This dress enhances her beauty. BDOTW for sure.

  18. August 25, 2011 at 14:55 #

    If she would’ve just removed the white train from the Balmain dress I would definitely have prefered that one. But I’m gonna have to go with this pink leather Valentino dress, so cute and cool!

  19. kiwi August 25, 2011 at 14:16 #

    This one

    LOVE! I don’t think i’ve ever seen a more beautiful leather dress in my life.

    She pulls it off fantastically, love this girl

  22. Leo August 25, 2011 at 14:00 #

    Love the look, but I feel like I’ve seen this before. I preffer the Balmain one, it was such a showstopper.

  24. mm August 25, 2011 at 13:32 #

    I LOVE the hair.

  25. jo August 25, 2011 at 13:12 #

    Valentino. She looks stunning, I love it.

  26. noo August 25, 2011 at 13:04 #

    this is a perfect dress! also hair, make up, shoes and accessories are all done to perfection 😀

    • aiyu August 25, 2011 at 15:37 #

      Yes, everything was perfection

  27. Jacqu August 25, 2011 at 13:01 #

    Nice but Boring.

  28. Gail August 25, 2011 at 12:57 #

    IMO, Zoe always looks good.

    FC, I know this has nothing to do with this post, and please forgive me, but I was wondering if you’ve seen the pics of Kim K and her bridesmaids? I would love to know your expert opinion. I’ve seen the pics, to be honest, I was a little disappointed. Her and the BM’s wearing the same color with the same color bouquets completely washed out the pics in my opinion.

    • Fashion Critic August 25, 2011 at 13:03 #

      Sorry but I haven’t looked at any pictures of the wedding as I have no interest in it.

      • Gail August 25, 2011 at 15:24 #

        That’s understandable, thanks for responding 🙂

  29. Francesca August 25, 2011 at 12:55 #

    Valentino, of course! 🙂

  30. Hermione Weasley August 25, 2011 at 12:54 #

    Definitely Valentino. She looks gorgeous!
