When it comes to Black Swan, everyone wants their proper bit of credit. First costume designer Amy Westcott was upset Rodarte got all the glory after designing seven costumes, and now Natalie Portman‘s body double is refuting claims that the actress did 85% of the dancing in the film. She says it’s more like a measly 5%.
Natalie Portman, the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, released a statement today calling the video of Dior creative director John Galliano‘s drunken anti-Semitic tirade shocking and “disgusting.” Portman, who is Jewish, said flatly that she will cut all ties with Galliano, but made no mention of her connection to the Dior label.
Admittedly, the bevy of expensive gowns at this year’s Oscars wasn’t the most exciting we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop a few looks from standing out. And among the ones that did, there were some pretty clear cut trends. Take a look at the colors and ideas that dominated the night and let us know if you see any trends you’ll be taking off the red carpet.
It’s the Oscar dress everyone was waiting for. On Sunday, Natalie Portman stepped out onto the 82nd Annual Academy Awards red carpet in a rich aubergine, off-the-shoulder gown by design darlings Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte.
Basically, every Hollywood celebrity and their mother was out and about last night for a myriad events that ran the gamut from Tom Ford‘s Los Angeles store opening to a Forevermark party for Michelle Williams to the Hollywood Reporter’s Big 10 fete to Vanity Fair’s soiree celebrating Fox Searchlight Films. And the worst part of all this is that, instead of banding together (to make our lives easier, natch), our favorite style stars decided to divide and conquer.
We love Natalie Portman‘s Miss Dior Cherie print ad (we may have called it “the most flawless perfume ad in the history of perfume ads,” in fact), so it’s no surprise that we dig her new commercial for the fragrance, too.
It takes a lot of work to be a world renowned ballet choreographer. It also takes a lot of work to be in movies and go to red carpet events with your pregnant, Oscar nominated bride-to-be. So maybe that’s why it took several phone calls and text messages and emails and lots of rescheduling for The New York Times to track down Benjamin Millepied and ask him about what his life is like now that he’s a boldface name in Hollywood.
As with every red carpet event of the last month, Natalie Portman (and her beautiful belly) was tonight’s most eagerly anticipated appearance. Opting for an ivory strapless gown by Azzaro, Portman looked every bit the elegant, Old Hollywood movie star — albeit a decidedly pregnant one. We’re happy she favored a form-fitting style for tonight, but can’t quite figure out whether this her best look yet — or merely the safest.
After starring in an award-winning movie as a perfection-obsessed ballerina (and after getting engaged to a man who taught people how to look like ballet dancers for that movie), it’d be safe to assume Natalie Portman would know how to cut a rug. But when she met Ellen DeGeneres backstage at The Ellen Show yesterday, all she ended up doing was cutting up.
Even though the fashion and celebrity whirlwind known as The Golden Globes is just a sparkling memory in the Internet’s eye, we know that there are still a fair few people who haven’t had the chance to feast their eyes on the glorious bounty of pinks, greens and sequins that dominated the award shoe’s red carpet yet. And to make it easy for you to dive right in, we’ve collected all of our Golden Globes coverage into one post.
Natalie Portman always looks beautiful. But there’s something about this pink gown by Viktor and Rolf that’s throwing us off. Oh, wait. It’s that large (and oh so literal) sparkling red rose in the center of her decolletage.
Last night’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards saw celebs break out some fabulous duds as they walked the seriously star-studded red carpet. This awards season has us obsessing over Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams ad nauseum, but we’re also loving seasoned vets like Julianne Moore and fresh faces like Emma Stone and Elle Fanning.
Last night, three of our favorite red carpet regulars — Natalie Portman, Blake Lively and Michelle Williams — once again faced the flashbulbs, which means they now have to face our ruthless fashion analysis. We’ve broken down their looks piece by piece. Do you agree with our picks?
If winter 2010-2011 was a competition, Natalie Portman would be winning. First there was Black Swan, then a Vogue cover story, then her engagement and pregnancy, then all of those banging red carpet looks. And now, the most flawless perfume ad in the history of perfume ads. Ever.
The setting: the Palm Springs Film Festival. The opponents: Natalie Portman and Carey Mulligan. The weapons: Vionnet and Prada. Let the sartorial showdown begin!
The People’s Choice Awards were last night and, while we have no idea who won what, we do know what went down on the red, er, blue carpet. Click through to see Natalie Portman’s adorable baby bump, Khloe Kardashian’s newly red ‘do, Katy Perry’s awesome ombre ensemble, and Ashley Tisdale’s no good, very bad tan.
Maybe it’s all the holiday cheer, maybe it’s just pure coincidence, but this was the week that everyone we know got engaged. Okay, maybe not people we actually know personally. But famous people who we feel like we know? They all got engaged. And because it seems like the only fair thing to do, let’s pit these newly betrothed couples against each other in a celebrity engagement deathmatch of sorts!
Remember earlier when we said there was something in the water RE: engagements? We think it might actually be viral. A little while ago, actress Natalie Portman‘s people let slip to the people at People magazine that the actress is not only engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied, she’s also carrying his child!
Black Swan is undoubtedly one of this year’s most fashionable films. (Rodarte! Rodarte! So much Rodarte!) And while the film’s original poster is pretty stylish, British design studio LaBoca just released a new set of posters that are total knockouts.
