Thanks to her killer body and eye for style, Zoë Saldana has had nary a red carpet miss. But the actress attributes many of her big hits to her stylist.

“She’s one of my closest friends and we … have so much fun with fashion,” Saldana told reporters Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards, where she stunned in a colorful mini. “I don’t let it worry me.”

Saldana said that when she’s not busy filming, she’s often studying style. “I love the craftsmanship of it … I love the composition, what designers go through to build a collection, to build a line, to build a label, a brand.” (Case in point: she recently came to New York Fashion Week expressly to catch the Prabal Gurung show.)

So with all of this fashion knowledge, what is Saldana’s big wardrobe must for the months ahead? “Color,” she said. “I’m a New Yorker. I’m always dressed like I’m mourning something, in black and white. But I’m introducing color this year.”
