Zoe Saldana channeled some serious #BossBabe energy in a recent shoot with Who What Wear, where the actress spoke candidly about the need for diverse representation in Hollywood. With 20 years in the industry under her belt, Saldana has certainly carved out her spot in the stars, and we’re not just talking about her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"You’re trained to be the supporting anchor to a white person, a white story, a white event. But as an artist, I have an ego. I want to get the main part. I want to win.” @zoesaldana gets real about representation in Hollywood, family values, and achieving bliss in our latest cover story—link in bio for the full read. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ photo: @photobyhudson stylist: @petraflannery hair: @mararoszak makeup: @amyoresman
Saldana also spoke about BESE, a digital news platform that seeks to elevate Latino voices and stories often missing from mainstream media, which she founded last year and serves as CEO and Editor-in-Chief. “BESE was conceived from wanting to tell stories of American faces that go blatantly omitted every day from the mainstream narrative,” Saldana shared with Who What Wear.
Just because Saldana was talking business, doesn’t mean that she was afraid to show a little skin during the shoot. This menswear-inspired, plunging blazer by Bottega Veneta was the perfect piece to showcase her confident aura. Saldana looked stunning and effortless as she rocked the contrast of a traditional menswear shape, with an unexpected and sexy twist.
