London: ‘Star Trek’ star Zoe Saldana has a huge respect for the craftsmen for making beautiful outfits.

The 34-year-old dusky beauty, who is not an ardent follower of fashion, said that she appreciates the craftsmanship because her grandmother laboured away in sewing factories in 60s`, reported Contactmusic.

"My grandmother arrived in New York in the 60s and worked in sewing factories and also for design houses. I don`t see it as, `Oh my God, this is so cool because it`s the latest.`

"That to me is superficial. I have a respect for fabrics, buttons, embroidery, shoes, colours and textures. I`ll never lose sight of that because I see my grandma in all of them," she said.

The actress, known for her fearless fashion sense, recently admitted that she was pondering whether to chop off her luscious locks for a dramatic new look.

"At some point I might just want to chop it all off and go really short. I`ll just wake up in the morning and, well ... You know.

"If I want to chop off my hair, I`ll take scissors and do one side before I even go to the hairdresser. It`s all about trusting my instincts. Plus, that way I can`t change my mind!," she added.
