When it comes to fashion, Zoe Saldana refuses to be influenced by big names when selecting attire. Perhaps with a body like hers, she may not have to – nonetheless, the driving force behind her fashion sense is a private one.

The stunning actress only wears clothes that compliment her personality. In a conversation with People magazine, Saldana said,

“I love so many designers. From the older iconic ones like Lanvin, Givenchy. I’ve got Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein. I wore an amazing Louis Vuitton dress to the Golden Globes. But I look to find myself in them and not to get lost in them. So if I see an outfit from a designer that I really feel will complement my personality and I know that I would wear it well, I will definitely fight for it.”

In the image-centric realm of Hollywood, the “Colombiana” star’s use of fashion as a means to compliment her personality, rather promote a persona is a refreshing concept. With so many celebs out there – namely Lady Gaga leading the charge – it’s easy to forget that dressing like it’s Halloween every dang day isn’t the only way to create a captivating look. But I digress…

A fashionista in her own right, the Avatar star launched fashion database, MyFDB.com, along with fiancé Keith Britton. Similar to IMDB, MyFDB aims to catalogue ‘who’s who’ in every magazine shoot, from the subject in front of lens to the creative team behind it, and much more.
“It’s really for anyone who loves fashion magazines, luxury brands, celebrities, models – you can browse them all [on] MyFDB.COM,” Saldana adds.

    I don’t understand this post. Are you saying that she’s not a label whore or that she just likes to wear what compliments her personal style? And if the latter then you contradict yourself when you include a quote with her dropping labels, so obviously, she does care for brand names.

    I don’t know, it just seems like you’re trying to promote Saldana’s website and take an unnecessary jab at Lady Gaga at the same time.

      Wow, relax. It’s just a post talking about the actresses approach to style. I find Gaga’s appearance a little annoying too so I guess I can relate to where the author is coming from. I love Zoe Saldana and I think it’s great that she comes across so suthentic and is trying to make a unique mark in fashion in so many ways. That’s how I interpreted the post.

      I was confused too. Moreso at the part about not having to wear big name designers because of her body when they tend to design for smaller girls.

    I think the comment about Gaga isn’t fair . Gaga’s fashion is more about wearing art and expressing a point of view rather than just fasion. I thought the same way before about Gaga…but when I saw her interview with Oprah Winfrey I finally got why her sense of style is the way it is.

    Why hone in on just an example to prove a point about celebs and fashion? Poor Gaga just can’t catch a break. Whatever. Talentless hack.
