Zoe Saldana In Roksanda Ilincic – 2014 AOL NewFronts

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…”

Zoe Saldana In Michael Kors, Tory Burch & Goldsign – ‘Infinity Polar Bear’ Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Saldana In Michael Kors, Tory Burch & Goldsign - 'Infinity Polar Bear' Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Saldana joined the black-boot-loving parade otherwise known as Sundance Film Festival, attending the premiere of her latest flick ‘Infinity Polar Bear’ held at the Eccles Center Theatre on Saturday (January 18) in Park City, Utah.

Like Diane Kruger, the glamorous Zoe can do dressed-down chic oh so very well.

Opting for an all-black look sans her white Tory Burch ‘Murphy’ shirt, she wore a black Michael Kors sweater from the Fall 2013 collection with Goldsign ‘Virtual’ high-rise skinny black jeans, with my favourite piece of this look being her Robert Clergerie ‘Leonce’ lace-up boots with a fur trim.

Zoe Saldana In Prabal Gurung – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Zoe Saldana In Prabal Gurung - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Every gaze must have been directed Zoe Saldana’s way, as she posed on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

The actress, who is never one to shy away from the edgier side of fashion, debuted a ballet-pink and black frock from Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2014 collection.

The elegantly slim-line, pencil-skirt silhouette was given a provocative, futuristic dash of flair, given all that bold bric-a-brac that laced nearly every inch of the dress.

Punched up with silver flashing at the molded bodice and glittery flowery-like embellishment, it also featured an asymmetrical, sheer lace panel that shot through the bottom half and also showed up again at the slit of the back.

It was a sexy-sassy-quirky moment if there ever was one.

Matching blushing-nude heels and a pink Bottega Veneta clutch corresponded with the dress, while dainty Lorraine Schwarz diamond earrings, a slicked-back bun and red lip (no space-age lavender lipstick here) put a classic tinge on this complicated number.

Zoe has the distinct advantage of looking every bit as good as the runway model in this hyper-designed look. The complexity is what made this dress really tick—or for some, it may be its ultimate downfall. But the more I looked at it, the more I liked it, much to my own surprise.

You may remember that Fashion Critic had this dress picked out for Zoe Saldana on her wish list.

Hair Trend Spotting: Braids

Hair Trend Spotting Braids 2
There’s no easier way to enhance your everyday hairstyle. Whether it’s a ponytail or a quick fix to keeping your tresses out of your face, celebrities are obsessed this season with braids.

Katy Perry pulled off a lengthy braided ponytail at the 15th NRJ Music Awards. For a full braid like hers clip-in extensions are a must.

Solange Knowles loves wearing box plaits, and she should, because they look great on her. To get this side swept style let the ends unravel freely.

Olivia Palermo, the braid connoisseur, wore two braids with her chignon at the 2013 Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards. The key to this look is using minimal product to achieve the ladylike softness.

Zoe Saldana’s braid is perfectly (un) done. For the effortless chic look curl hair first and tie a black ribbon on the tip of the loosely braided coils.

Is it just the celebrities, or are you obsessed with braids this season too?
