As promised, here is this weeks column, which is a little look into the style of Natalie Portman following her win at last nights Golden Globe awards.
Less than three weeks in and 2011 is already shaping up to be an incredible year for Natalie Portman. Shortly after announcing her pregnancy and engagement, the actress took top honours at Sunday evening’s glittering Golden Globe awards and was named best actress for her role as disturbed ballerina Nina Sayers in Black Swan. The accolade puts her on the right track for an Oscar at the Academy Awards on February 27, as the Golden Globes are often thought to give a clear indication of who will be presented with the gold statues at the Oscars.
Natalie’s dress showcased her baby bump on the red carpet in a beautiful Viktor and Rolf pink strapless gown with Swarovski red rose detail. She teamed the dress with towering red glittery platforms, though she swapped these for more practical silver pumps to match the Azzaro halter neck gown she changed into for the after parties.
Natalie’s classic beauty and fashion choices have lead to her being compared to Audrey Hepburn. When attending high profile events, the actress seems to follow the ‘less is more’ mantra. Favouring modest lengths and classic shapes, her style is never too over the top. Accessories are often limited to one showstopping piece of jewellery, such as the Tiffany necklace she wore to the Golden Globes ceremony.
Not known for never being one to follow the crowd, Natalie has always followed her own path when it comes to fashion, bringing her own brand of understated, girlish charm, to the red carpet. Once a fresh faced child star, Natalie has evolved into a red carpet siren who favours statement gowns from designers such as Lanvin, Rodarte and Dior who are known for their stylish twists on classic elegance.
