If there’s one thing Zoe Saldana learned from her fashion choices, it’s that you have to be fearless. “I have a hard time with intimidation because I’m not usually intimidated,” the actress told us of her style at yesterday’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo in Los Angeles. “Not because I’m arrogant. I’m just so focused in my world.” Case in point—her 2009 Oscars dress, which she picked with the help of her stylist, Petra Flannery (inset). “Everybody was expecting that Givenchy outfit to be intimidating because I was wearing something so bold,” she said. “[That dress] was speaking to my heart. I was everything but intimidated. I never felt so safe and confident!” See more of Zoe Saldana’s best outfits ever in the gallery.
