Zoe Saldana returned to the red carpet for the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
The "Avatar" star stunned fans in two-piece white Monique Lhullier dress featuring delicate silver sequins, paired with braided updo and her enormous new emerald engagement ring.
Saldana, 36, quietly married Marco Perego, an artist, back in June, making her whole ensemble on Sunday night even more of a hit with fashion critics.
"Marriage suits her," one reader on the Daily Mail commented. "She's stunning!"
Another posted, "Zoe is looking really good lately."
Meanwhile, Jeremy Renner, Joe Manganiello, Lenny Kravitz and director David O. Russell also attended the 7th Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards on Sunday at L.A.'s The Ebell.
Although Saldana and Perego have been married five months now, the Italian artist did not escort his wife during the awards.
However, last week, the pair were spotted in Beverly Hills in similar plaid shirts and jeans when Perego revealed a tattoo portrait of Saldana on his arm.
While Perego's devotion is obvious, the newlyweds remain tight-lipped about their wedding. It is believed that Saldana was first romantically linked to her longtime friend Perego in May after they were spotted kissing at the "Star Trek Into Darkness" premiere, according to Us magazine.
"It was a super small but very romantic and beautiful," a source said of the wedding, according to the magazine. "[They've] known each other for a long time."
Saldana, born Zoe Yadira Zaldana Navario, is said to be Dominican Republic and Puerto Rican. The actress got her first big break in 2000's "Center Stage," and she has since starred in "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Blood Ties," among many others.
Next year, the actress will appear in films "Infinitely Polar Bear," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "The Book of Life," and is rumored to be connected to the highly anticipated "Avatar Two."
