Zoe Saldana: Prabul has longevity

Zoe Saldana thinks designer Prabul Gurung is like a "little Meryl Streep" in the fashion world.

The Hollywood beauty is famed for her gorgeous looks and slim physique and is regularly praised for her elegant style.

Zoe has broached the subject of designing her own collection, although she would only do it if she could work with her favourite fashionista Prabul.

"That is something that I would love to do," when asked about designing her own line.

"I would only do it if I could collaborate with someone like Prabal. He's like a little Meryl Streep when it comes to fashion - he is just stellar."

Zoe is in awe of high-end fashion designers. The stunning star would even consider an unpaid internship if it meant she was able to get closer to seeing them in action.

"There are many amazing designers that are completely prolific. To sit and be in the same room as them when they are putting their collections together would be really cool. From Tom Ford to Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, those guys have paved the way. It would be amazing actually to do an internship," she told

"I would get them coffee just so I could listen. They [designers] are true pirates and rock stars. They are kind of like Nascar drivers. There is no such thing as an off-season and they are racing year round. Not many people understand that."

Zoe has described her style. The 33-year-old actress shies away from floral designs because she finds them too fussy.

"Right now I am wearing this little Alexander Wang tight grey skirt - I bought like two of them. It's been so hot here in California so I am really into tight little dresses," she revealed.

"I'm not a floral-print person; it's too prissy for me."
