Zoe Saldana Wears Balmain Dress to Colombiana Screening 2011-08-23 09:17:50

How to Channel the Opulence of Zoe Saldana's Balmain Dress

Zoe Saldana chose a richly detailed Balmain Resort 2012 minidress complete with a white train to a screening of Colombiana in Miami yesterday. While the collection was designed with a Vegas-era Elvis in mind (and, yes, we can see references to that infamous white bedazzled suit), the ornate detail and mix of gold, white, and silver reminded us of something more classically opulent; indeed, Zoe reminded us of some Ottoman Empire princess. The effect is easily channeled for every day with a few good accessories. Here are our styling tips for channeling Zoe's opulent look without investing in a Balmain minidress:

  • Stack a mix of gold and silver bracelets on your wrist and wear it with a silky blouse in navy blue, cream, or white.
  • Try an ornate statement necklace or pendant earrings over something velvet and luxe.
  • Carry a gorgeous bejeweled clutch on your next evening out; it will immediately elevate a simple cocktail dress.
