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?

I love this dress. I think it has a sorta rock n roll twist on a frilly, romantic dress. And she took it one step further by wearing black shoes with a white dress proving that she has the panache to break fashion rules and look hot doing it.

Darcie P on

love the dress, although the ruffles could be a lot less.

Elena on

Don´t like the dress but she manages to make it look elegant and stylish…Thumbs up for her…

Jennifer on

Love it! I think the fact that it is white makes it work. Any other color would be too much. The fact that she is such a classy girl helps too. Anyone know where she got her shoes? I probably can’t afford it, so maybe a good knockoff? LOVE them.

It’s so cute on her! And I love the black shoes. White shoes would have drawn the eye away from her pretty face and the dress.

by the way tammy, you commented three times…. gay much! hello, she looks good in the incredibly unique dress, who cares about the black shoes, get the picture?

I must say that the dress is very interesting to look at. I don’t think you have be perfect and look the same all the time.So more power to Natalie and I think that wearing something that looks different is what makes each person unique. To me ,Natalie is beautiful no matter what she wears!
