Hot! or Hmm…: Zoe Saldana in Balmain Resort 2012 at the Miami Premiere of Colombiana

Zoe Saldana ditched her striped cardigan and readers for the Miami Premiere of Colombiana, slipping on a chic gold and silver speckled dress from Balmain’s Resort 2012 collection:

While the original version flaunted a short hemline, the designers at Balmain outfitted Zoe’s version with a flowing asymmetrical swath of white fabric.

She completed the look with black strappy sandals and a smile.

Call me crazy, but I think I actually prefer the original version. Yes, Zoe’s look is different and more red carpet appropriate with the train, but I think the white fabric takes away from the allure of the dress. What do you think?
