I know I have been bombarding you with lots of red carpet fashion, Oscars weekend is full on, I’ve already run through all my favourite Oscars looks, gushed over Diane Kruger’s hybrid look, and now here we have Naomi, Amy and Natalie rounding off my best dressed at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
Who: Natalie Portman
Where: At the New York City Ballet’s 2012 Spring Gala at the Lincoln Center in New York City
Wearing: A navy tiered silk chiffon Dior gown with black ribbon detail inspired by the spring/summer 1973 Dior Haute Collection, teamed with a matching clutch
Verdict: I missed Natalie Portman at the Met Gala earlier this week, if she was there I haven’t seem any images, but I was sure she would attend in Dior, so her attending the ballet really did make up for it.
What I love about this gown other than the colour, which is truly divine, has to be that dramatic neckline. I love the halter ribbon tie finished off with a bow, that matches perfectly with a ribbon tie to the waist, simply in its design but so gorgeous and an elegant touch that was perfect for the ballet. I am so pleased that she finished her look with a tousled up-do as really does allow the neckline to shine.

Who: Natalie Portman
Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles
Wearing: A vintage red chiffon silk polka-dot Christian Dior haute couture gown from 1954, teamed with a Harry Winston v-shape cluster necklace and drop earrings, and a black box clutch
Verdict: As the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume it isn’t really a surprise that she would turn to Dior for something a little special for her return to the Oscars as last year’s Best Actress winner. I love that she is channelling Grace Kelly with this 50’s inspired look, and the jewels really complement the old-Hollywood glamour to perfection. I think that Harry Winston v-neck cluster necklace is my best piece of jewellery of the night, just piping Gwyneth’s diamond cuff.
Who: Best actress nominee, Natalie Portman, for her role in Black Swan
Where: At the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood
Wearing: A plum silk chiffon draped custom made Rodarte gown teamed with Jimmy Choo heels, Roger Vivier clutch and Tiffany rubellite tassel earrings with rose-cut diamonds
Verdict: Well we nearly didn’t see Natalie on the red carpet as she was last to arrive, maybe that was to avoid the “was Dior your original choice for tonight?”.
I like this gown, I just wasn’t blown away by it, I was expecting a lot more considering she is the hot favourite to take away the Oscar.
I like the way the off-the-shoulder gown frames her baby bump, and the draping really does create a gorgeous silhouette. Also the colour is a striking colour on her. But what makes this outfit has to be those Tiffany tassel earrings – they are stunning.
