Zoe Saldana believes fashion is an "art form".

The 'Avatar' actress - who once launched a clothing line with her sisters and has a fashion database website myfdb.com with her fiance Keith Britton - loves taking time to put an outfit together as she knows it's important to get the right look.

She said: "Five years ago my sisters and I created our own brand, called Arasmaci, but we actually produced no more than a few T-shirts and some accessories because I became overwhelmed by 'Avatar'.

"For many people, including a lot of actresses, fashion is all about brand names, logos, status symbols, but for me, it's an art form."

Zoe also revealed how she accepts part of her job is to look good but she would never wear anything that made her look "cheap".

She told Britain's Hello! magazine: "My body is my office, you might say. Half the job of someone in showbusiness is creating an attractive image. And for me, that doesn't mean becoming a cheap sex symbol."

Zoe recently admitted she finds a "privilege" to be a role model for Women.

She explained: "I guess I'm a role model now, and that is a privilege. I think women were fighting because we wanted to be feminine. Then we had to be masculine. Now we just want to be us."
