Zoe Saldana turns heads in a sparkly plum dress and sky-high heels as she attends Stella Artois event in New York City

Zoe Saldana took the red carpet by storm on Thursday evening as she arrived at Stella Artois’ The World’s Most Fascinating Dinner in New York City. 

The 45-year-old actress — who recently spoke on her career struggles as a woman of color — turned heads in a sparkly, ruby-colored dress.

The slinky number was sleeveless and clung to the Crossroads star’s svelte fame as she graced the red carpet with her presence.

The eye-catching dress had a dazzling netted layer with asymmetric short sleeves and Zoe carried a matching plum purse.

Also appearing at the affair were Ludacris, Matt Damon, and Jeremy Allen White, with whom Saldana stars in the beer brand’s latest campaign.

Wow! Zoe Saldana took the red carpet by storm on Thursday evening as she arrived at Stella Artois ‘ The World’s Most Fascinating Dinner in New York City 

Zoe stepped out in a pair of open-toe black wedge-heeled shoes that displayed her glossy onyx pedicure.

Her manicure matched and she showed off short, natural nails that she drew attention to with two rings and a chunky gold bangle.

The mother-of-three — who shares twins Cy and Bowie, 8, and Zen, 6, with husband Marco Perego — looked lovely with her rich, light brown locks cut into a long bob.

She rocked a side part and the shoulder-grazing tresses were arranged with a loose, bouncy body wave.

Saldana, who married husband Marco in 2013, looked pretty with smoky brown eyeshadow, blushed cheeks, and a rosy lipstick.

She gathered with rapper-turned-actor Ludacris, 46, Damon, 52, and White, 32, for a photo-op on the red carpet. 

The four stars reunited after working together in the Big Apple back in March as they filmed a commercial for the beverage line.

Water.org, the nonprofit Matt co-founded to help increase water access in deprived areas, has collaborated with Stella Artois on charity initiatives in the past and Thursday night’s event was in support of it.
