Celebrity Look 4 Less – Zoe Saldana in Balmain

by Celine on May 2, 2010

Zoe Saldana is such a beautiful woman, isn’t she? She’s got a spectacular face, but also an amazing body that is perfect for showing off lovely clothes – and she chooses well (that Oscar dress!). We also love the look she put together for “The Losers” premiere in L.A. just a few days ago. The strong-shouldered Balmain dress is the perfect statement piece and she showed great restraint in choosing her accessories – a simple clutch, belt and ring made that fabulous dress the focal point – along with a pair of badass Cesare Paciotti heels.

Zoe Saldana’s Look 4 Less

We love Zoe’s look, but wanted to find something more affordable (duh!) and also a little more real-world (or “real-girl” as Vahni eloquently put it in one of her posts) friendly. The Balmain dress is amazing, but, seeing as how I’m not a Hollywood starlet, where on earth am I going to wear a frock with such a plunging neckline? Never mind the price. I’m in love with this ASOS Body Con dress. The general feel is the same (strong shoulders, figure-hugging style), but it’s a lot more wearable than the Balmain. The Steve Madden “LANGLY” platforms are spot-on and the accessories we chose are perfect and CHEAP. All in all this entire look will run you well under $200. Now that’s a steal.

    I love the shoes Zoe has on, but def. not willing to spend the 3 something on them. I’m not super keen on the suggested pair, I did by the woven style from “Shoe Dazzle” but any ideas where I could get that fitted booty look with a cute top style like that, strap across the bottom?? I’ve been dying for a pair like this for months! I just can’t find the “right” take on them.
