Zoe Saldana For Flare January 2014

FLR_JanCover

Zoe Saldana was captured by James White for the cover of Flare Magazine’s January 2014 issue wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier trench, Salvatore Ferragamo top, Jason Wu skirt and hot pants, plus B Brian Atwood heels.

The ‘Nina’ star talks to the Canadian mag about her no-regrets policy about portraying Nina Simone, the challenges of male-dominated sets, the power of women today, not caring what anyone says about her, and her secret softer side.

On the power of women today: “Women aren’t wimpy. They don’t complain all the time. They can open up jars! They can fucking save the day! They can support their whole family. They can support their men. Half of my friends make more money than their male partners.”

On life lessons: “You have to learn from your experiences. I’ve been in compromising circumstances, and I wish I’d had the strength that I have now because I would have protected myself better. I would have stood up for myself better. Women are challenged every day and are sometimes encouraged to objectify themselves. And it hurts.”

On not caring what anyone says about her: “There’s nothing anybody can say or think about me that I will give a shit about. Honestly.”

On her secret soft side: “It’s so funny: the characters I played in ‘Columbiana’ and ‘Avatar’, on the surface, there’s what appears to be strength, but it’s sugar-coating an immense vulnerability. I am tough, but I’m also a very vulnerable person. I trust everyone. For many years I thought, I need to stop being this way, but no, I just need to learn from it.”

On the challenge of male-dominated sets: “You’d see all the boys together, and they’re discussing the scene and what’s going to happen. You just go, ‘yeah, but…’ and they say, ‘oh, but we already discussed that’”. In these instances, Zoe has no problem saying “‘I understand everything you’re saying, but these are the terms we agreed on, and that is why I got on a plane and came out here, and I decided to have your back, and now I don’t feel like you’re having my back. This character is invisible. She’s completely irrelevant, and she should be more. ’”

On her no-regrets policy about ‘Nina’: “At the end of the day, no matter how the movie is received, I’m not going to regret anything.”

Zoe Saldana attended the 2013 American Music Awards, held on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The actress showed us a one-shoulder gown from the Roland Mouret Spring 2014 collection, debuting an asymmetrical, patchwork-print gown that was cut through with a boldly unexpected swath of sky-blue satin fabric on the side.

It was a mirror image that took to the runway, and Zoe carried off the complex look with a sense of effortless ease that many could hardly handle.

She completed her entrance with black Jimmy Choo ‘Desire’ ankle-strap sandals, along with sleek long locks and a deep smokey eye.

Zoe Saldana In Monique Lhuillier – 7th Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards

Zoe Saldana In Monique Lhuillier - 7th Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards

Following the ‘Out Of The Furnace’ AFI Fest premiere on Saturday evening, Zoe Saldana was back out on the red carpet the following evening for the 7th Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards held at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The actress opted for another neutral-coloured look wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2014 nude embroidered sleeveless top and calf-length skirt, which she styled with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps.

I have a feeling some might be bothered by the length but, as the look is layered, shortening would’ve dampened the allure.

Here we see yet another braided updo, with Jamie Wolf earrings and a Dana Rebecca Designs cuff completing her look.
