But one color Saldana was never interested in wearing in the past? Pink. "I'm not a pink girl. I was always against pink," Saldana tells InStyle at The Hollywood Reporter & Jimmy Choo's 5th annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon yesterday. "I think it took Petra the first two years of our relationship for her to build up my confidence to wearing pink, and not feel weak or like a chick. I was equating it to all the wrong things, and pink is such a strong color. It's so feminine but also very striking and commanding. And so she gets me to wear all shades of pink now."
In the past year, the actress has been spotted in multiple hues of the color, from fuchsia to barely blush.
Flannery, who was awarded the top spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s annual list, also knows how to make getting red carpet-ready above all, a good time. "It's all about having fun," Saldana shares. "We always put some music on. We always do voices. We play characters. An hour fitting ends up becoming a four or five hour thing where we order food and drink champagne. It has to be fun for me because if the creative process isn't, then what I'm wearing just feels very superficial and very fleeting."
