Zoe Saldana has ''respect'' for the detail that goes into fashion.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' beauty isn't interested in the latest style trends and insists she appreciates outfits for the craftsmanship that has gone into them because her hardworking grandmother laboured over designer couture while working in sewing factories in the 60s.

She explained to LOOK magazine: ''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.''

The 34-year-old star is known for her fearless fashion sense and recently admitted she is pondering whether to chop off her luscious locks for a dramatic new look.

She said: ''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!''
