She is back—and absolutely radiant!
Stepping out a little more than two months after giving birth to twins, Zoe Saldana positively glowed at the 2015 VES Awards in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Feb. 4—her first public appearance since Cy and Bowie were born on Nov. 27.
On hand to present her Star Trek director, J.J. Abrams, with the Visionary Award, Saldana, 36, looked happy and healthy as she stepped out onto the stage in a polka-dot-topped, strapless black cocktail dress and patent leather pumps.
And her beauty look was just as classic. The Book of Life voice actress, whose form-fitting frock hugged her already-slim frame, modeled a fresh blowout, rosy cheeks, and a red statement lip.
On stage, Saldana, who's been married to husband Marco Perego since 2013, gushed about Abrams as a director and a friend. "He writes his thank you cards in person and that means a lot," she began. "He's a father, a friend, a husband, a son, a teacher, a student, a director, a storyteller. I don't know, he's like, cool! So those are my two cents."
And Abrams thinks just as highly of his leading lady. When asked about Saldana being the one to present him the award, the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens director told Us Weekly, "Zoe is among the funniest, most out-there, most daring, honest, beautiful people I know. It's a true honor, maybe the biggest honor of tonight, having her here to present the award."
And she makes cute babies, too. "She sent me a picture [of the twins]," he said. "They look unbelievably cute! Obviously."
