Zoe Saldana & Emmy Rossum In Max Mara – Whitney Art Party

Zoe Saldana & Emmy Rossum In Max Mara - Whitney Art Party

Celebrities attended the Whitney Art Party sponsored by Max Mara held at Highline Stages on Thursday (May 8) in New York City.

Zoe Saldana: The ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ actress wore a Max Mara rich-red strapless dress with a fold-detailed bodice and pleated skirt. This frock, which brims with genteel elegance, was styled with simple black Oscar Tiye pumps.

Emmy Rossum: Working a smoky eye and tousled tresses, the ‘Shameless’ actress wore a Max Mara sleek black jumpsuit with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a grey clutch. I love the sequined asymmetrical panels at the waist which ensure that this piece captures your attention.

Zoe Saldana paid a visit to SiriusXM Studios on Thursday (May 8) in New York City to promote her new NBC mini-series ‘Rosemary’s Baby’.

Dressed in teal, the actress wore a Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014 silk charmeuse blouse with a self-tie detail at the neck making this a luxurious piece nuanced with inimitably chic poise, which she paired with a pencil skirt.

Her chic daytime look was styled with an emerald ring, nude pumps and, as always, flawless makeup.

Zoe Saldana In Michael Kors – 2014 Met Gala

Zoe Saldana In Michael Kors - 2014 Met Gala

Zoe Saldana was on the arm of designer Michael Kors at the 2014 Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City this evening (May 5).

Naturally, the actress was in Michael Kors, a custom confection consisting of a simple black cashmere halter bodysuit and, the main attraction, a pouf-y, black floral lace and optic-white taffeta sculpted skirt.

The sartorial sculpture continues again here, as can be expected with this year’s Met exhibit of styles by iconic American designer, Charles James.

A black python clutch, a few bangles and rather minimal makeup and loosely fixed locks completed the effect.

At first, I thought the look demanded more—as in a brighter lip or more daring hair. But now that I reflect on it, the more relaxed styling made this bustling look more current, without a hint of try-hard.

Zoe Saldana In Roksanda Ilincic – 2014 AOL NewFronts

Zoe Saldana was another actress making a welcome return to the red carpet for the 2014 AOL NewFronts event held at Duggal Greenhouse on Tuesday (April 29) in New York City.

The actress worked a pretty Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2014 blue and white circle-printed top and skirt.

I love the contrasting coral neckline supported by the coral patent Christian Louboutin pumps, plus the lightweight feel of the look, with a sheer back, sheer sleeves and a delicate ruffled peplum which cascades down the skirt.

A collection of gold jewels, a blue box clutch, tumbling curls and a red lip rounded out her look.

You haven’t been overly excited about Zoe’s previous outings.

Does this look put her back at her best?

Zoe Saldana For Net-A-Porter’s THE EDIT

Zoe Saldana For Net-A-Porter's THE EDIT

THE EDIT features actress Zoe Saldana on the cover in this season’s beautiful pieces featuring an Alexander McQueen dress and bag by Nina Ricci.

In an exclusive interview, Craig McLean talks to Saldana about life beyond her dazzling acting career and her personal life, which she keeps far from public view.

Currently filming in Paris where THE EDIT meets her, Saldana is working on a two-part mini-series remake of classic horror ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ for her new production company, which she runs with her two sisters.

As a businesswoman as well as an actress, it’s clear her new role has kept her busy: “I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym.”

Embracing her role as a wife now too, last summer Saldana briefly escaped the five-month ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ shoot (out this summer) in Surrey, England to marry her Italian husband, artist Marco Perego nearby: “I’m not a private person, but I am discreet. So it felt right.”

Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder when she was a child, her condition explains her drive, myriad expressions and her concurrent projects. Saldana isn’t fazed by it though: “I don’t care what people think”, she says cheerfully. “I wish I did, maybe I would be at a different place in my life, but I don’t care. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart, my friends’ advice, a song, a poem.”

On whether her condition affects her acting career: “I have ADD, I am a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I am getting tired of the frustration of being just a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be in there from its conception.”

On her exciting red carpet style: “I don’t care what people think. If I did, I’d be at a different place in life, but I don’t. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart or my friend’s advice. Petra Flannery, my stylist, is a paramount when it comes to my fashion radar. She pushes me to evolve.”

On her new diet: “I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself. [I don't go to the gym] because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have. But this past year I’ve let myself go. I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans…”
