Zoe Saldana has a ''harsh'' and ''aggressive'' wardrobe based on her tomboy self perception.
Zoe Saldana has a "harsh" and "aggressive" wardrobe.
The 'Avatar' actress admits to being a bit of a tomboy and her clothing choices veers toward that side of her.
She told Self magazine: "I've never really been that feminine. Look in my closet and you'll see things that are elegant, sexy, tomboyish, sophisticated, beautiful, aggressive.
"It's harsh. It's a lot of black. Pretty is the last word you would think of."
Zoe - who also starred in 'Star Trek' - said her take on fashion stood out against the bright Caribbean fashions of her native Dominican Republic.
She said: "The Caribbean is the most floral-happy culture in the world, and my sisters and I were like three little Jackie O's with big sunglasses, reading all these sophisticated magazines and dressed in black at all times."
Zoe does, however, occasionally wear bright colours and on a recent shoot picked out a floral dress which brought back fond memories for her.
She explained: "These florals tell a story. I was channelling that South Beach-looking-for-a-millionaire-husband-from-Switzerland kind of thing. I live in constant storytelling mode.
"Sometimes, I have to give myself permission to be pretty."
