With her new movie "The Words" set to hit theaters on September 7th, Zoe Saldana cranked up the promotions by covering the September 2012 issue of Gotham magazine.

The 34-year-old actress looked picture perfect in a satin jumpsuit with chiffon details from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci for the Andrew Eccles shot front page while engaging in a Q & A session with "Star Trek" co-star Zachary Quinto.

A few of the highlights from Miss Saldana's interview with Mr Quinto are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Gotham!

On her first memory of fashion:
"My grandmother and great grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the '60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn't like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury; it was about art."

On the favorite piece of clothing she owns:
"There's this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself."

On her contemporaries with a kindred sense of style:
"Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices."

On what she's looking forward to in the next year:
"Honestly, to continue growing in every aspect of my life because it's been a long time since I've been this happy. I really want that to motivate me moving forward on every level."
