Happy Birthday, Zoe Saldana! Shop the Star's Style Signatures

Just a few short years ago, Zoe Saldana was best known for her role as Eva, the spunky yet uber-talented ballerina in 2000's cult classic Center Stage. Now, she's one of the most-watched style stars on red carpets across the globe. With a taste for architectural silhouettes and bold hues, Zoe embraces daring runway looks with all the devil-may-care attitude of a supermodel—and looks damn good doing so, if you ask us. Today, Avatar and Star Trek: Into Darkness' leading lady turns 35, and we can't wait to see her wow us with another year of standout sartorial choices.

Click through to check out five of Saldana's go-to style staples—and to shop them all for yourself, of course.

Graphic Black & White

Basic black and wear-everywhere white are never, ever boring—not in Zoe's capable hands, at least. She turns to the classic color combo for red carpet premieres and photocalls alike.

Shorts

We can't think of a celeb who's wholeheartedly embraced shorts on the red carpet quite like Zoe has. She particularly favors ones covered in bold prints and/or cut from interesting materials, like leather or neoprene.

Sheer Details

Peek-a-boo! The Star Trek starlet frequently uses see-through paneling and transparent tops (with a second layer worn beneath, of course) to show a little—and in some cases, a lot—of skin. Still, she always knows how to strike just the right balance of sexy and sophisticated.

Ruffles

As a petite girl, it'd be easy for Zoe to overwhelm her tiny frame with the over-the-top tiers and fancy frills she loves. But thanks to her very big personality and admirable fashion bravado, she always pulls off the look with flying colors.

Printed Fit-and-Flare Dresses

A dress silhouette that's nipped in at the waist and dramatically flared in the skirt is perhaps the most universally flattering a woman can wear—and Zoe's well aware of that fact. As with her shorts, the actress prefers her A-line numbers decorated with florals, stripes and other graphic patterns.
