If we’re being honest, Zoe Saldana is pretty much flawless. Her acting skills, fierce personality and incredible smile are enough to bring any man (or woman) down to their knees. She also has the ability to rock everything from jeans and t-shirt to couture gowns and constantly looks effortless and beautiful. If you need any proof of that, just check out Zoe Saldana’s Marie Claire August 2014 cover.
For this issue, Saldana is wearing a classic denim Levi’s shirt and Saint Laurent jeans. The cover title reads “Feisty, Fearless and Fabulous,” which to be frank, is exactly what Saldana embodies in this photo. Her red lips, high cheekbones and soft hair is sure to sell thousands of copies of this issue. Saldana again captures our hearts in the another photo, shot by Boe Marion, where we see the starlet hiding from paparazzi in car. For that image, she is wearing a gorgeous geometric Prada dress that shows off her long legs and arms.
But as we mentioned before, Saldana is way more than a pretty face — she’s seriously badass. While most celebrities are coy (and probably lying) about past relationships, Saldana has a more realistic approach. “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you,” she said.
She married Italian artist Marco Perego in a secret ceremony in 2013, the person who she says changed everything. “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
