Friday's Fashion Obsessions: Natalie Portman and Zoe Saldana

Nov 15, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. ET

Natalie Portman and Zoe Saldana's beautiful celebrity styles made us do a double take this week! We're telling you why in this week's installment of Friday's Fashion Obsessions.

Natalie Portman

What's black and white and oh so fabulous? Natalie Portman's dress, of course! The star of Thor: The Dark Kingdom stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman to promote her new film and selected a simply stunning black and white dress to celebrate the occasion.

From the front, this two-toned LBD is quite simple. It's got a structured neckline, an A-line silhouette and a pop of white at the bottom. But the behind is where things get magical, ladies. Gathered pleats and a top/mid back cutout add a dose of glam! Natalie accessorized her pretty dress with earrings, a sleek updo and strappy pumps.

The final verdict? Classic looks like black and white don't have to be boring, girls! Search for fun silhouettes and throw in a few classy accessories to look simply fab.

Zoe Saldana

Another event, yet another stylish lady! Zoe Saldana made white lace look sexy (not stuffy) at the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards presented by Los Angeles Confidential magazine in this two-piece stunner. At the ceremony, Zoe presented her longtime friend Robbie Brenner with an award, but we're giving her a fashion award this week.

Normally I wouldn't use the word "oozes" in a positive way, but I can't help myself. Zoe's top and skirt ooze sophistication in the best of ways. The fitted ankle-grazing skirt might seem demure, but if you zoom in, it's actually a bit sheer, and the same goes for her top. Sexy and modest? A fashion combo that's quite hard to achieve, but Zoe has done it with ease here. She topped off the look with pointy ankle strap pumps and a few subtle pieces of jewelry.

The final verdict? Even Zoe's makeup is perfect here. Bronzed, glowing skin and a pale lip provide the perfect backdrop to this statement-making fashion combo. Oh, and the fact that she wore her hair in an on-trend braided updo doesn't hurt either.
