Natalie Portman knows quite a bit about how to be fashion forward, and she proved that once again in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. The Black Swan actress who gave birth not so long ago was present in a Lanvin dress when she addressed the crowd at the 2012 Elie Wiesel National Tribute Dinner.
Held at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, and hosted by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Natalie was wrapped in a purple cocktail dress with black panels from Lanvin's 2006 fall collection. At that time, this same style made its way down the catwalk via a very slim model in a rich shade of orange and with legs in black tights.
Although the Oscar-winner was model thin in her own version, she was looking quite healthy as she made her appearance in another version of this dress with its illusion neckline and large brooch on the left shoulder. Portman decided to go with nude legs attached to Christian Dior black pumps that looked graceful thanks in part to a bow accent.
As for how this beautiful actress wore her hair?
In its signature halfway up, halfway down style, a fashion fixture for this famous noggin'.
That said, please take a look here at the celebrated thespian and then weigh in: Was Natalie Portman on point for this particular occasion or was she a fashion fail? Did she pick the best frock or should she have looked elsewhere for her style statement for the evening? Thoughts? Thanks.
