Zoë Saldana vamps up the CFDA Fashion Awards! (VIDEO)

At last night's CFDA Fashion Awards, I thought that the red carpet fashion would (understandably) be the most impactful part of the evening. But it was actually Zoë Saldana's eye makeup that immediately caught my attention.

The Puerto Rican and Dominican star wore her hair sleekly pulled back, which only served to emphasize her dramatic smokey cat eye. Not to mention she totally stole the red carpet with her fierce black sheer-paneled Prabal Gurung gown.

The actress knew how to keep it simple with this dramatic and looked dazzling. Besides the fact that she's got an amazing body (that black and sheer-paneled dress really left very little to the imagination), her complexion is downright amazing.

That's why all she really needed last night was to emphasize her pretty eyes.

And boy, did she! I have to say, as someone who loves to wear dramatic eye make-up when I go out, she pretty much sported the look I love the most. Too bad I always have trouble recreating a smoky cat eye myself, it always ends up looking more trashy than classy. But now--inspired by Zoë--I'm going to try it again.
