Actress Zoë Saldana is having one of the biggest years of her career. She found success early in the year with the release of JJ Abrams's hit remake of Star Trek. Then she struck gold at the end of 2009 as one of the stars of James Cameron's mega sci-fi blockbuster Avatar. The film, released on Dec. 18, earned over $77 million domestically in its first weekend, making it the biggest 3-D debut ever. Along with the evolution and growth of Saldana's career, we've also seen the stunning star come into her own as a fashion powerhouse. She owned every red carpet she graced this year and impressed us with her versatility and refined sense of style. She was, hands down, the best dressed star of 2009. Not convinced?
