Zoe Saldana kicked off the first of the month when she showed her support for an important cause at The Children’s Defense Fund’s 21st annual Beat The Odds Awards last night at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Instead of a cocktail dress or gown, Zoe kept her look pretty low-maintenance with a top and skirt.

A basic white top can bring a lot of life to an outfit when paired with the right pieces and accessories. This Giambattista Valli puff sleeve white top suffered from a lack of necklace. Due to the wide sleeves, it also threw off the balance of the look because Zoe is already very slim, then add in the fact that she paired this top with an incredible — but super sleek — tweed skirt.

When it came to her shoes, Zoe wore those same Giuseppe Zanotti white and black ruched peep toe platform pumps that she wore earlier this season. They didn’t work with her Antonio Berardi dress, and they don’t now. A pretty pink neon sandal or even black would’ve been preferred.

Zoe probably could have helped her outfit out by leaving her hair loose, but no. It looks like her hair was curled and then twisted into a bun styled up-‘do. It’s also side parted with a little volume only on one side. Her lips were a dark, dark berry; the color is great but a glossy coral tone would have looked really nice with everything else.

If you loved her skirt as much as I did — you’re in luck! You can currently purchase it on sale for $652 at Net-a-Porter!

In addition to the skirt, I also liked her jewelry. Zoe wore 18k Veil on Wire earrings from Joan Hornig (100% of profits benefit the charity of the purchaser’s choice!) and a melted pave wrap bangle in gold with white cz by Melinda Maria.
