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?

Stunnning! Nothing short of perfect. She’s been a slam dunk the entire festival. Love the accessories and the hair, it doesn’t get better than this.

Diana on

I love the dress, its a risk, and good for her body type, but I hate those shoes!

Laura on

I think she looks great! I could never pull that off.

stacy on

love it it’s different x

Lucy on

Yay to celebrities who take fashions risks that work. Few people can pull off that dress and she definitely did a fantastic job doing it!

mary on

i love it. i think she looks gorgeous. the only thing is i can picture it being made out of toilet paper. but i like it anyways.

claudia on

I wouldn’t wear that dress, but it looks good on her and who said that you can’t wear black shoes with a white dress, there is nothing wrong with that.

Trine Sook on

It’s so cool that she’s werring that.
I think it’s a beautiful dress, because it has these detailes the whole way up. And white is the perfect choice to exactly that dress!

Megan on

Love it!!! It’s beautiful and she’s beautiful. No one should judge her or her choice.

Cindy on

I personally couldn’t wear it – but if I was her age and was in Cannes, I’d go for it. Good for her!
