Zoe Saldana 'pushes her style'

Zoe Saldana's stylist hopes that her contract with L’Oréal Paris will improve the star's "visibility".

Petra Flannery works with the Hollywood star and created her gorgeous purple Givenchy look at the 2010 Oscars.

Zoe was recently named the new face of L’Oréal Paris, which thrilled stylist Petra. However, it won't mean that the star will hold back with her look from now on.

"It’s very exciting that Zoe just signed on with L’Oréal," Petra smiled to "This heightens her visibility as an actress and as a brand ambassador. We’ll continue to uphold her fashion status on the red carpet, and as usual push the envelope. I hope it means even more red-carpet appearances."

The 35-year-old always looks flawless at events, with her make-up matching whatever she is wearing. Petra says it's a close collaboration between stylists and make-up artists.

"When it comes to working with make-up artists, yes, I work closely with them," she explained. "It’s great to have an input on the overall appearance of a client’s look. So much involves colour and pairing the two. It’s nice when hair, make-up, and styling can have creative moments as a team. It really shows."

Petra has been working as a stylist for more than ten years and also counts Emma Stone among her clients. It was one of Zoe's most iconic style moments that showed Petra just how far she has come.

"Zoe Saldana wearing Givenchy Haute Couture at the 2010 Oscars," she answered when asked what her 'made-it moment' was. "I saw it when the show hit and I instantly knew it was her dress. The Givenchy team met us in Europe while we were there for work and the rest is history. It was truly a fashion moment."
