If there's ever a time and place to peacock, it's at the 2016 Met Gala—just ask Zoe Saldana. The fashion forward movie star is known for taking risks on the red carpet, and Monday's Costume Institute Gala was no exception. In keeping with the evening's theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, Saldana 37, modeled a feathered Dolce & Gabbana dress that featured a dramatic train. The Italian fashion label also designed the actress' clutch and jewelry.

Christian Louboutin heels completed her bold look. Saldana opted to enhance her natural glow by wearing Charlotte Tilbury makeup, which complemented the whimsical nature of her gown. Saldana looked and felt like her best self, and her husband agreed. At one point, Marco Perego even leaned in for a kiss—and photographers just so happened to capture the tender moment.

Suffice to say, Saldana was flying high at the event.

The actress traveled to New York City to attend the Met Ball. For the past few months she has been based in Atlanta, as she has been filming Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 alongside Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Kurt Russell, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Chris Sullivan. Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, meanwhile, will also be returning to voice their characters from the 2014 blockbuster.
