Earlier in the day, Saldana was seen filming scenes with a young co-star.
The Avatar was seen balancing the child, who was dressed in a pretty green dress, on her hip.
Her outfit was rounded out with some ethnic-style jewellery, including a choker and a headpiece.
Zoe caused controversy when it was first revealed that she had been cast as Simone, with many saying she wasn't 'dark-skinned enough' to play the legendary jazz singer.
But Zoe Saldana covered her hair on set of her new film Nina on Friday, donning a head wrap - one of Simone's signature looks.
The 34-year-old actress embodied the late songstress in her chic ensemble - which consisted of the beige-coloured accessory paired with a matching shift dress and cape.
