A look back at Natalie Portman’s most gorgeous red carpet looks at the age of 40.
Natalie Portman rose to prominence in the mid-nineties with her role as 12-year-old hitman’s helper Mathilda in the cult film Leon: The Professional.
Since then, she’s earned an Academy Award for her role in Black Swan and has a long list of acting accomplishments, including the Star Wars saga, Jackie, and Closer. She’s a fashion icon who favors Rodarte and French design firms Dior and Lanvin, and is noted for her traditional Old Hollywood charm.
We take a look back at some of Portman’s most jaw-dropping red carpet moments as she turns 40 on June 9…
Choosing to be environmentally friendly
Portman made a splash as a young actress in 1999 when she wore this mint gown with a tulip hem to the opening of Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, in which she played Padme Amidala.
Short and to-the-point
Portman normally wears full-length gowns to black-tie events, but she broke the mold when she wore this strapless red Lanvin short dress at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Che.
Portman’s love of ruffle detailing has become clear over the years, and she looked every bit the fashion star when she donned this sculptural Givenchy gown at the 2008 amfAR Gala in Cannes.
This purple Rodarte gown is one of our favorite red carpet looks from Portman, which she wore to the 2009 Academy Awards event. It’s feminine, eclectic, and exquisite.
On board is a baby.
Portman wore a Rodarte gown, Tiffany jewelry, and Jimmy Choo shoes to the 2011 Academy Awards, where she won Best Actress for Black Swan.
At the 84th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, this stunning vintage Dior gown made a big impression.
Moment of the skirt
Portman has been wearing ballgown skirts on the red carpet in recent years, and this Dior silver jacquard masterpiece is undoubtedly one of her best.
