Zoe Saldana In Prabal Gurung – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Greatly missed on the red carpet for last month’s Met Gala, Zoe Saldana returned to the world of high fashion, attending the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

Walking the red carpet alongside Prabal Gurung (in custom Antonio Azzuolo), Zoe showed off her slender figure in a slinky black gown with sheer panels from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Zoe has the honour of being the first star to appear in this particular gown, and now that I’ve seen her, I cannot imagine anyone else doing it such justice.

The actress wisely chose to remove the shiny leather belt from the runway version, providing a sleeker, more romantic look.

Cartier jewels, slicked-back hair and smoky eye makeup are the perfect accents to this moody ensemble.

Zoe was the first celebrity to ever wear a Prabal Gurung dress and they continue to work so well together.

    I know this was an old post. We all agreed no one will be able to do just to this Prabal Gurung gown once Zoe wore it. But today Deepika Padukone surprised everyone by wearing this for Filmfare Awards.

    I think she looked as fab as Zoe if not more. Would love to see a feature on the same.

    Hmmmm…. I’d really love this dress if someone just cut off the sleves. There, I said it.

    I’m the only dissenter, but as much as I love Zoe, I really dislike this dress. It’s very trashy Morticia to me. I realize that others see it differently but that’s all I can see. Her face is glowing, though.

    She looks stunning!

    Minimalistic perfection!

    I don’t really love the dress, but she certainly can wear it.

    She looks amazing. Between her & Sophia Bush BDOTW will be hard this week. Only a clutch would ahve made me love it more.
    Prabal looks gorgeous, too. The photo of them together is just proof that life is simply not fair!

  20. Mandy June 5, 2012 at 10:46 #

    Absolutely stunning. I know where my bdotw vote is going.

  21. Jess2 June 5, 2012 at 10:42 #

    That is so lovely that Zoe was the first to wear Prabul Gurung. I love this look it is beautiful yet edgy and chic. I agree with you FC that not wearing the belt was a good move and that the next person to wear this has they work cut out.

  22. JamilaMaz June 5, 2012 at 10:42 #

    One of my favourite people on the red carpet! She looks incred!!

  23. Jones19 June 5, 2012 at 10:25 #

    Wow this is such an amazing look! A wonderful collaboration between these two.

  24. Beta June 5, 2012 at 10:21 #

    she looks absolutely sensational!
    she has a tiny tiny waist, so this dress is made for her

  25. Yeliz June 5, 2012 at 10:19 #

    I didn’t knew that she was the first to wear a Prabal Gurung dress. That really surprised me.
    She looks great here.

      I will never forget the red Gurung dress Zoe wore during the 2009 Star Trek promotional tour with killer — and I mean killer — heels. I believe this is the dress FC is referring to. FC featured it of course so if you search the RCFA blog or click back through the archives you will find it.

      And ITA, she looks fabulous as does Prabal.

    Gorgeous! So soft and yet so daring, lovely.

  27. Pablo June 5, 2012 at 10:05 #

    Incredibly beautiful. The one to beat this week!
