Zoe Saldana's Style Evolution: From 'Center Stage' Dancer To 'Avatar' A-Lister (PHOTOS)

There's a reason Zoe Saldana makes our Best-Dressed lists and Look Of The Day columns on a regular basis. How could I pick only a few? Her A-List style, however, a fairly recent development.

I have been a fan of the New Jersey-born actress since her "Center Stage" and "Crossroads" days and I can't forget those midriff-baring tank tops and sparkly skirts she'd wear on the red carpet.

Since then, Saldana has come a long way in terms of both her career and her personal style. Now that she has traded in her youthful clothing for edgy pieces by Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen and Balmain, the Latina actress has solidified her status as a fashion star. Not only was she on the arm of designer Prabal Gurung at the CFDA awards this month, Max Mara named her the "Face of the Future" and she is one of the current stars in Avon's fragrance campaigns.

To celebrate Saldana's 34th birthday on Tuesday June 19th, we're taking a look back at her greatest style moments (and there are a lot). Which outfit is your favorite?
