November 11, 2011 Runway To Red Carpet

Zoe Saldana In Elie Saab – 2011 Latin Grammy Awards

Posted by Catherine Kallon

Zoe Saldana attended the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada tonight.

Elie Saab dresses are like buses, you wait forever for one and then two come along at once.

Ironically they are both green.

The ‘Colombiana’ actress opted for a Kelly green fully sequined crew neck cap sleeve gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 collection.

The gown is accented with a thin belt but unlike Mrs Martin, Zoe opted not to overwhelm her dazzler with jewels. She simply added a bronze Bottega Veneta clutch.

I knew it would take something special to get Zoe out of her red carpet mini funk, and it had to be the King.

Long live the King.

Who is your green goddess?

Gwynie or Zoe?

    After blue, green is just my favorite color…. and coming from Saab it just gives me goosebumps, she looks FANTASTIC!

    Zoe looks gorgeous, that’s for sure, but although I didn’t like Gwyneth’s necklace with that gown, I prefer her gown, as its colour is more vibrant and sparkly and as a result, much more impressive for me.

    This reminds me of Angie’s green Oscar dress. Zoe looks boring to me actually because she doesn’t really have pizazz or spunk. She looks put together and all, but there isn’t that “spark” if you will….

    Zoe looks amazing. BDOTW contender for sure.

    Purrfection! Zoe’s dress is a little quieter than Gwyneth’s (for green sequins)! but she knocks it out of the park with gorgeous hair and makeup. BDOTW contender for sure.

    Zoe ftw. Gwyneth’s necklace committed an assault on that glittering gem of a dress. Could just be my family background but my favorite colors are purple, green and gold, Mardi Gras colors in New Orleans. When I see Zoe in this dress, I just want to party, lol.

    great dress but it doesn’t suit zoe’s complexion IMO

  8. Jen November 11, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    Amazing. Love that color and love the fit – she really needs to be up for BDOTW.

  9. Fee November 11, 2011 at 1:27 pm #

    Zoe looks amazing. However I HATE the colour, that’s just a personal response though. All I can think is “St Patrick’s Day parade”, must be be an Irish thing 🙂

  10. Alina November 11, 2011 at 1:14 pm #

    Def. Zoe ! BDOTW contender.

  11. Tania November 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm #

    Zoe! The colour looks fantastic on her. I love it and I want to own it.

    Yes FC long live the king!

  12. Pati November 11, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    I have been waiting sooooooo long for those gorgeous colors to show up on the red carpet that I welcome ALL the goddesses that dare to showcase these bold dresses!!! I love this look. This is something I would wear and most likely style it in similar way. Simply fabulous!

  13. Luisa November 11, 2011 at 12:22 pm #

    Zoe all the way!

  14. argentina November 11, 2011 at 11:59 am #

    Eventhough i love gwynie i have to say Zoe looks terrific. Gorgeous in green

  15. Zee November 11, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    Gywnie minus the necklace.

  16. Naomi November 11, 2011 at 9:29 am #


  17. cheryl November 11, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    zoe almost always knows how to make it works.

  18. Mick November 11, 2011 at 9:05 am #

    Zoe wins all the way for me. I like the dress itself much more, and I prefer the simpler approach to the styling, with no stand-out accessories like that totally out of place chocker Gwyneth wore.

  19. Emi November 11, 2011 at 8:12 am #

    I like both but I prefer Zoe’s dress, because it’s very chic, and it doesn’t scream “look at me!!” I usually dislike green, but this dress is so beautiful, for some reason it reminds me Angelina’s Versace gown, even if they’re quite different.

  20. Katey November 11, 2011 at 7:51 am #

    Zoe Win this! 🙂 She’s the green godess. for me.

  21. Jess2 November 11, 2011 at 7:14 am #

    Oh how I LOVE Eli Saab!! This dress is amazing, simply stunning. Zoe looks beautiful and the bronze clutch is such a nice touch. As much as I loved Gwyneth’s dress, its my favoutie and she looked absolutely amazing but because of the necklace I am going to have to pick Zoe as the best look.

  22. mol November 11, 2011 at 7:09 am #

    Zoe a thousand times more, she just lets the dress breathe and drape and do its thing, no distractions, just beautiful shiny hair, and her coloring is so perfect with this color too.

  23. Gaber November 11, 2011 at 6:29 am #

    The dress is beyond stunning..
    And while I think you need someone with more curves to work it completely, this still looks gorgeous.

  24. molly November 11, 2011 at 5:02 am #

    BDOTW…those are the only words I can form right now! 😛

  25. Nadine November 11, 2011 at 4:26 am #

    Zoe is super chic, I love this look so much it’s easy to choose it over Gwyneth’s.

  26. Rebecca Z November 11, 2011 at 3:53 am #

    Zoe for sure. This was one of my three favorite dresses from the collection and I pictured it on Zoe. It is so smart and chic. She looks fabulous.

  27. Jackie November 11, 2011 at 3:13 am #

    I don’t know if you were able to mentally Photoshop out Gwyneth’s necklace but that’s the only thing I could look at (and I was not admiring it) so Zoe is my green goddess. Miss Paltrow’s dress is stunning though… if the necklace wasn’t so large I could’ve probably overlooked it and she would’ve been my green goddess. Maybe I would prefer Gwyneth’s dress if I’d seen it before Zoe’s… this is hard.

    perfection. BDOTW

  29. karine November 11, 2011 at 2:35 am #


  30. Linda November 11, 2011 at 1:44 am #

    Love both, but the sparkle on Gwen’s dress wins me over – if only she hadn’t worn that necklace.

  31. Penny November 11, 2011 at 1:43 am #

    She looks beautiful but I don’t think it stunned as much as Gwyneth’s did.

  32. Raquel November 11, 2011 at 1:37 am #

    Oooooh, gorgeous! I don’t remember ever seeing Zoe in green, what an amazing color for her. Love.

  33. Katharine November 11, 2011 at 1:30 am #

    Love both dresses, but it has to be Zoe : perfect styling, sensational colour, great hair … definite contender for BDOTW.

    • Jen November 11, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

      +1. She’s my bdtow so far.

  34. TeaAtTwo November 11, 2011 at 1:29 am #

    I liked Gwyneth’s look, I LOVED Zoe’s look.

    • TeaAtTwo November 11, 2011 at 1:32 am #

      Though I think it’s a bit unfair- it’s like fashion comparison of a pea and an emerald.

      • gurlygurl November 11, 2011 at 1:47 am #

        LOL… ” a pea and an emerald” … I agree.. I liked Gwyneths look but Zoe is divine… it’s like all my Christmases came at once. A definite BDOTW

  35. bee7 November 11, 2011 at 1:24 am #

    Zoe looks much better than gwyneth.

  36. JG November 11, 2011 at 1:23 am #

    Perfect color against her skintone!! Zoe all the way!

  37. Pao November 11, 2011 at 1:19 am #

    she looks so perfect! she is my green goddess!

  38. Hannah November 11, 2011 at 1:17 am #

    Even more ironically they came out one after the other at the runway show. She looks amazing, it is styled to perfection, she is regaining her glow. I prefer Zoe’s look to Gwyneths.

      me too!
