Since I’ve been compared to this lovely actress many times, I decided to look up some of Zoe Saldana‘s red carpet moments to inspire a look for my feature film premiere of “He Heard My Cry“ at The Hollywood Black Film Festival on October 28th, 2012.
In the center photo above, I love the length of the dress paired with the classy vintage element the lace material provides for an upscale event that doesn’t necessarily call for a floor-length gown. Fortunately, I was able to borrow a dress from a good friend that matches the feel of the black dress Zoe is wearing. [This saved me about three days of running around to different stores trying to find it myself.] I also stumbled upon some great black platform pumps at Kohl’s while trying to find a use for their $10 coupon that came in the mail a few weeks ago. Don’t you just love those?
…as well as a hairstyle Tayen has been wanting to do lately.
I’m a huge fan of a smokey eye and a nude lip, so the makeup will be similar to my Hot Hot Heat photoshoot makeup:
I’ll keep you posted on the finished product, but you’ll have to wait a few days. Until then…
