Zoe You know how the forest glowed in "Avatar"?

Zoe Saldana's dress did sort of the same thing Sunday night on the Oscars red carpet -- the sparkling top of the actress' Givenchy gown practically had a life of its own.

"The moment I saw it, I just thought, it was so beautiful, and I thought it was going to embody everything I've gone through, that I've experienced with this whole 'Avatar' journey."

And how was walking the red carpet for the soon-to-be short-film awards presenter?

"It was so easy breezy ... so far!" 

Check out the video for a great look at the bottom of Zoe's fascinating gown in motion.
