Despite being notably M.I.A at Monday night’s Met Gala, Zoe Saldana was in New York City attending the Cosmopolitan for Latina’s Premiere Issue Party last night.

The actress looked beautiful wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture dress.

Her lavender dress with a sheer embellished neckline and tiered skirt is such an adorable look. It’s always a delight to see Zoe on the red carpet.

Zoe accessorized with a Bottega Veneta clutch which closely matched her dress and silver-and-blush Brian Atwood ‘Claudia Bis’ pumps with an embellished heel.

Glossy waves, fringed Irit Design earrings and rings completed the look.

Thanks to PaulyneZI for an update on the runway picture. I much prefer this look as a gown.
