It has been well-documented that Zoe Saldana has a certain penchant for outer space. In 2014, the actress told Badass Digest that she believes there are better parts for women in the solar system than there are here on Earth, and that mentality has led to leading roles in critically acclaimed films like "Avatar," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and J.J. Abrams's "Star Trek." But we on this planet thoroughly enjoy when Saldana returns to Earth — presumably shuttled in by SpaceX's latest contraption — to give us a taste of her otherworldly chicness.
For the world premiere of "Star Trek Beyond" in San Diego, Calif. on Wednesday, Saldana arrived in a shin-length periwinkle blue mermaid dress from Givenchy's fall 2015 Haute Couture collection. With teensy, bejeweled spaghetti straps and an embellished bodice, the piece actually resembles a leotard that her "Center Stage" character would've worn on-stage with the American Ballet Company. (TBT.) Her stylist Petra Flannery even thought to match her shoes and subtle eye makeup with the gown — a difficult feat based on that pastel coloring.
The whole look is a far cry from the Dolce & Gabbana pajama set Saldana wore all over town on Monday, but that simply goes to show her impressive sartorial range. She should touch down on Earth more often.
