We might obsess over what celebs wear, but even with the pressures of having to be “on” all the time, Zoe Saldana doesn’t let her style decisions stress her out. The actress, who routinely shuts it down on the red carpet with her ladylike looks, told People Style Watch at the Independent Spirit Awards that she actually enjoys the process of creating looks, with the help of her stylist. ''She's one of my closest friends and we have so much fun with fashion. I don't let it worry me," Saldana said. That must be why her ladylike style always looks so effortless!

Even though Zoe isn’t pulling her hair out over what to wear, the actress still greatly admires designers' work. ''I love the craftsmanship of it ... I love the composition, what designers go through to build a collection, to build a line, to build a label, a brand.''

For the Fall 2012 season of Fashion Week the Avatar  stunner jetted to New York to support her friend Prabal Gurung’s line and the designer also helped inspire her to get even bolder with her style. ''I'm going to wear color,” she said. "I'm a New Yorker. I'm always dressed like I'm mourning something, in black and white. But I'm introducing color this year.''

Saldana took on Gurung's front row in one of the designer's turquoise blazers with color-coordinating satin floral pants and for the Spirit Awards she donned a chirpy Balmain floral mini. We’d say she’s off to a good start!
