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?

Love it. Look at her perfect face- she’d look good in a paper sack! She gets away with it!

I wouldn’t wear it, but let’s face it I couldn’t pull it off. She has a beautiful build and she is dainty enough that she can make the look work ! Good for you Natalie, way to be daring. However black shoes with a white dress, a big NO No !!!

HATE IT!! All you notice is the big fluff – you are so stunned you don’t even bother to look at who is in the atrocity. YUCK!!!

I believe this dress is pretty, but i would much prefer the bottom longer with the puffyness, but again it fits her & i think she looks super (:

The dress is chic,she is chic,in my opinion she just re-invented edgy with a classical touch of poise.
Natalie Pulled it off, and I think this should be in one of the best dress lists ever.
Natalie you look wonderful
