18.03.2019

It’s no wonder the Israeli/American actress and producer is one of Dior’s muses: she’s a diva with sophistication, romance, femininity and plenty of grace. On her off the big screen she’s an inspirational style icon as well as one of the most relevant personalities on the topics that matter in today’s society.

If you check out Natalie Portman’s Instagram profile don’t be surprised to feel a lack of editorial pictures and red carpet poses in exchange of an overabundance of campaigns and bold messages.

Where to look then to grasp Natalie Portman’s secrets in effortless elegant outfits? We’ve been looking around at some of her most iconic styles from her box office hits as well as the Natalie Portman’s movies we liked the most.

‘A magical dress for an equally magical evening’. This is how Natalie Portman dressed and captioned her red carpet look at the Afifest for the upcoming movie Vox Lux.

Natalie Portman - Vox Lux

Amongst Natalie Portman’s movies, Vox Lux will see her in a ‘pop star role’ starring in  a musical drama next to Jude Law: in the year of A Star is Born, we wonder if Natalie Portman can stand a chance next to Gaga as a performing actress/singer.The movie will be released on December 7th.

Natalie Portman - V For Vendetta

But well long before Natalie Portman could sport glitter and makeup like David Bowie would have done, it was her iconic shaved head look that we all fell in love with. She did it for V for Vendetta back in 2005 and this is how she kept the look working for her even off the set.

Amongst Natalie Portman’s movies, V for Vendetta is in fact the one that gives us a full transformation of character along the story, but that also changed the actress’ career, putting her on a launch pad to international stardom. She is Evey Hammond, a character created by Alan Moore and David Lloyd who plays a big role in V’s life, after he saves her from a gang of London’s secret police. What you did not know about the behind the scenes of this Natalie Portman’s movie is that her head was shaved in a single take.

Natalie Portman: retro romantic class

Now, can you just close your eyes for a second. Look at this for a transformation! No matter what Natalie Portman does with her outfits, she always manages to give them that final Jacky O spin, that classic retro touch, a polished finish, a pristine image, romantic yet never ‘shallow’.

Natalie Portman - Black Swan

Then how not to mention that Natalie Portman’s movie we all watched from start to finish with our eyes glued on her: a psychological thriller that sees her in the role of a ballerina competing to take lead role in the ballet play against actress Mila Kunis, Black Swan. An intriguing story depicting some of the controversial aspects of the professional world of ballerinas. Set at the New York City ballet, this is one of Natalie Portman’s best movies.

Natalie Portman - Star Wars: Episode II

From this gracious yet tormented character to a complete opposite, at least for the type of movie genre. From that type of ‘sector’ Natalie Portman is able to mutate not only into a sinister Black Swan: her array of movies includes as well a role in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, released in  2002. Here she plays the role of Padmé Amidala: The former Queen of Naboo, who has recently been elected the planet’s senator. Portman once commented on the type of costume she wore for the role:

“I got over the hump of 18 so I’m allowed to show tummy now, I guess”,

Natalie Portman - No Strings Attached

Natalie Portman arrays of movies started all back with her debut in 1994; Natalie Portman’s Leon is as raw as it gets. From there her career has evolved in so many different types of movies, let’s remind us of Annihilation, a 2018 sci-fi horror movie that saw her in the role of Lena.

For a bit of lighthearted comedy, don’t forget to watch this, one of our favourite Natalie Portman’s movies.
