Zoe Saldana Daydreams About Fashion ... and Her Wedding Day

Though Zoe Saldana is engaged to her dream guy, longtime beau Keith Britton, she has another love, too: fashion. The Colombiana star — who hit the red carpet in Barbara Bui at the Motorola Mobility bash in New York on Tuesday — is a fan “of so many designers,” she told PEOPLE at the event.

“From the older iconic ones like Lanvin, Givenchy … I’ve got Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein,” she said of her favorites, adding, “I wore an amazing Louis Vuitton dress to the Golden Globes.” Prabal Gurung, Derek Lam and Jason Wu make her list, too.

Though she has her favorites, Saldana — who’s hosting Gen Art’s “Fresh Faces in Fashion” runway show in Los Angeles on Oct. 22 — doesn’t focus too much on labels when choosing gowns. “I look to find myself in them and not to get lost in them,” she said. “So if I see an outfit from a designer that I really feel will complement my personality and I know that I would wear it well, I will definitely fight for it.”

That happened recently, when Saldana fell for a red Michael Kors jumpsuit during the designer’s fall 2011 show. “The moment my stylist Petra and I saw that, it just had to be the one,” she said. And in fact, it was: Saldana wore the outfit while guest judging Project Runway last week. “I was so happy to be on the panel,” she shared. “It’s such an amazing show.”

It was hard keeping her appearance on the show a secret, though. “I did get a couple of emails from really nosy family members when they heard that I had shot an episode,” she joked.

Hopefully her family isn’t getting too nosy when it comes to her wedding plans; Saldana said that she’s taking the process one day at a time. “I’m leaving it to come naturally,” she shared. “I don’t want to force it too much. We’ve always been very natural people who have always followed our hearts … and our pace.”

The couple of 10 years, who together run the new website My Fashion Database, definitely have some ideas for their big day, though. When asked if she hopes for a “dreamy” wedding, Saldana replied, “I think everybody does. And I do.”
