There is no better red carpet to rock a floral Balmain dress than at the Independent Spirit Awards, and there is no better person to rock that dress than Zoe Saldana.

The actress kindly demonstrated just how it’s done at this year’s ceremony, held in Santa Monica, California this evening.

Zoe opted for this sweet, colourful print Balmain Spring 2012 mini dress which features structured shoulders, a metallic gold print and a jagged edged open back for an unexpected touch.

Nude Brian Atwood peep-toes elongate Zoe’s legs and perfectly complement the dress, but at this point nude pumps are starting to go the same way as the black pumps…unimaginative and uninspiring.

Nonetheless Zoe, as always, is perfection here and I’m glad she didn’t opt for the belt.
