Natalie Portman might be known for her effortless red carpet flair–but when it comes to bump style, the first-time mom-to-be has discovered that there are new issues she has to contend with. One major Academy Awards fashion consideration? “Leaving space for growth,” the Best Actress nominee told PEOPLE at an Oscar Nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills on February 7th. But the star, who wore a teal Lanvin dress with pink satin pumps to the event, isn’t going it alone, and has her own master stylist hard at work searching for the perfect pregnancy ensembles. Tell us: Are you excited to see what Natalie Portman wears to the Oscars? –Reporting by Michelle Ward

Well, I think she looks fabulous. Her stylist obviously knows what they’re doing. The teal dress with the pink pumps shown above? Perfection!

Honest on

What stylist, what perfection? See the mess with the hem above her knees? Call a tailor or use a good iron!

Love Natalie Portman, but it looks like she’s wearing a robe here…that was stuffed in a drawer before she put it on!!

Really? on

@ Honest–that’s the cut of the dress duh

Stylist? She looks like a hot mess. Other pregnant women have looked much better in Hollywood. She needs to fire her stylist and find another one. I love the girl, didn’t like the movie, but her pregnancy wardrobe leaves much to be desired. She needs to remember if she wins it will be replayed over and over for years and years. The dress should be really good.

I hope she looks better at the Oscars than the does in the pic above. She looks horrid there (not her, just the dress). I agree it looks like a robe.

i think i would have liked the dress better falling below her knees and a little less drapey. but notwithstanding, she is stunning.

agree on

I agree- that hem is a MESS. i think Jane Krakowski’s pregnancy style has been stunning— embrace the bump and show it off! stop hiding it under formless baggy things, or hoping we wont notice it with something like a gigantic sequined rose attached to your bust.

Monie on

Lol… Seems like a lot of bitter housewives here who wished they looked half that gorgeous when they were pregnant.
