Natalie Portman's Cannes Dress: Love It or Hate It?

Natalie Portman always takes the edge off of her daring design choices with her innate elegance, and her wardrobe of Chanel and Lanvin at Cannes has been nothing short of gorgeous. But when she hit the red carpet for the AmFAR benefit at the legendary film festival tonight, we had to do a double take over her cut-out white Givenchy Haute Couture dress! There’s something so Jetsons-meets-Swan Lake about the sculptural creation that we just wouldn’t expect from Portman. We love that there is a young star who is always willing to take a red carpet risk (and can pull it off!), but we want to know what you think! Tell us: What do you think of Natalie’s dress? Do you love it or hate it?

Natalie Portman is a natural beauty. She can pull of anything. I mean she shaved her head nd was still one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen.

Dude you can wear black shoes with a white dress. Duh….black and white. LOVE IT!!

I think it really looks good on her. Not very many could pull that off.

I LOVE IT. It’s funky and unique. It’s creative and artistic. It’s mature yet childish in the same way. I think she really pulls it off…the whole gracefulness of it reminds me of a swan. Maybe if her hair were loose and wavy/curly, it would be better, and she could have chosen a better shoe, but all in all I love it. Very reminiscent of a fairytale.

I absolutely love it! She is the epitome of elegance and this tops the chart for that! She is the most beautiful and elegant woman in Hollywood, and she is a superb actress. The black shoes work perfectly with her hair, her eyes – with some heavier liner that she pulls off effortlessly. Flawless….how could you not think this dress is beautiful and classic and isn’t perfect for and non her. Givenchy Haute! Come on, this is not Jetsons in any manner.

I absolutely love it. It’s so much better than those cookie-cutter dresses everyone else wears, and it’s looks on her.

The dress looks like was just sewed wrong, and what was she thinking wearing black shoes…wrong wrong wrong.
