What's her secret? 

Zoe Saldana blew everyone away when she walked the red carpet at the Oscars  2015 on Sunday, Feb. 22, wearing a form-fitting custom Atelier Versace with dazzling Neil Lane jewels just three months after giving birth to her twin boys, Bowie and Cy. The Avatar actress, 36, was a walking billboard for a killer post-baby body figure, and she tells Us Weekly it didn't take long to settle on the gown that would cause mouths to drop. 

"Petra [Flannery], my stylist, called and it was custom made for me," Saldana told Us of her Versace creation. 

The Italian fashion house has a well-known track record of making stars look fantastic on the red carpet after giving birth. "They have dressed other new moms before and they basically said, 'Okay. Just give us the measurements. It’s going to be fierce,'" Saldana explained. "This blush [dress] just completely blew us all away. And I felt so beautiful. I was like, 'Okay! I can do this.'”

 

For Saldana's first major red carpet appearance since having twins, she relied on her two babies to help whip her body into shape. "Oh God. Breastfeeding!" Saldana credited to the reason behind her slim-down. "And just eating very healthy because I have to feed two babies. Just when you think you’re done feeding one, the other one is like, 'I’m here!' 'Oh! You too? Okay here you go.'

Saldana says her twins with husband Marco Perego are already developing their own unique personalities."So Bowie’s Bowie and Cy is definitely Cy. And we know their cries; it’s bizarre," Saldana said. "Everybody’s asking us when we’re in the house, 'Whose that?' And we say, 'Oh it’s Bowie.' 'Oh it’s Cy.' And we know exactly what they mean, so it’s fantastic."

Best of all, she doesn't even mind her new early schedule. "And 4 a.m. never felt better. To wake up at that time! We love it," she said while smiling at her husband Perego.
