Saldana, 43, showed off her impeccable fashion sense in an off-white gown that stylishly bunched up along the chest region while hugging her firm waist.

The elegant number also showcased her upper body with its off-the-shoulder design.

On this night, the star of the Star Trek film series also wore her raven tresses long and flowing to about the middle of her back with a center part.

Not only did Saldana strut her stuff solo for admiring photographers, she also joined Longoria, who opted to go with a revealing purple leather ensemble.

Created by Claudia Forestieri, the Puerto Rican native of Dominican-Italian descent also wrote one episode of the coming-of-age series.

‘The year is 1985 and Cucu ‘Gordita’ Castelli (Olivia Goncalves) has just said goodbye to all of her friends and family in Santo Domingo. She has moved to Miami with her marketing-executive father Víctor (Juan Javier Cardenas), bold and vivacious mother Adela (Diana Maria Riva) and status-obsessed older sister Emilia (Savannah Nicole Ruiz), the logline for the series from Sony Pictures Television began, as reported by Deadline.

‘While life in America is far from what they imagined — “The song said America the Beautiful,” Cucu says, “I think they oversold it” — the Castellis are determined to take charge of their strange new world. The coming-of-age series is about family, opportunity, love, resilience, and boldly defying the status quo in pursuit of the “American Dream.”‘
