Natalie Portman is having a blonde moment!

Attending a dinner for choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project, the Oscar winner debuted her lighter locks (which managed to outshine her white Dior gown) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

She rarely makes drastic hair changes, but she’s not the only one who’s recently ditched her brunette roots: Perhaps she’s taking a style cue from, say, Miley Cyrus?

Portman actually had L.A. colorist Tracey Cunningham switch up her ‘do for a role.

“My mom says I’m like a different person,” the Black Swan star, mom to 1-year-old Aleph, told The Hollywood Reporter. “I did it just a couple of days ago.”

“Natalie makes a beautiful blonde!” Cunningham says of the switch-up, which she achieved with Redken’s Blonde Dimensions. “She needed to make the change for an upcoming movie role, so we achieved a gorgeous, multi-dimensional golden honey blonde.” Tell us: Do you prefer Portman as a blonde?

It’s nothing we haven’t seen before — but it’s certainly something we haven’t seen in a while.

Natalie Portman bares quite a bit in her latest ad for Dior beauty, this appropriately for the new Rouge Dior Nude Lipcolor. The collection includes eight new shades, including a special hue, Grège #169, proceeds from which benefit Portman’s charity of choice, the Free the Children Association. The organization uses leadership training to empower and inspire the world’s youth.

“I chose the color Grège because it’s the one I’d pick to wear myself,” the newlywed actress says in a release. “The number [169] contains different dates that are important to me and my family.” Grège was also the color used to represent Christian Dior’s “New Look” back in 1947.

When Natalie Portman needed a wedding dress appropriate for a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony in California’s chilly Big Sur, the actress called on her friends. Her fashion friends, that is.

A source tells PEOPLE that Portman tied the knot in a dress by Rodarte, the label run by Portman’s longtime pals, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy. The frothy white A-line frock, left, was tea length, and featured a sheer overlay that covered the star’s chest and arms. She accessorized the simple gown with nude shoes, a veil and what appeared to be a floral crown.

The actress has been a fan of the young line for several years, wearing Rodarte creations on press tours for The Other Boleyn Girl, Black Swan and for the 2011 Oscars, where she nabbed the best actress statuette.

Portman and dancer Benjamin Millepied wed Saturday night in a moonlit ceremony attended by family (including their 14-month-old son, Aleph) and friends, such as Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner and Macaulay Culkin.

Although you might not know her name, you know her work: Does Natalie Portman‘s Oscar-winning purple Rodarte dress or Michelle William‘s mustard-colored Vera Wang dress (worn to the 2006 Oscars) ring a bell? They were seriously stunning, and the lady who gets the credit for those unforgettable looks is Kate Young.

Young, who was named Hollywood’s most powerful stylist by The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, has created so many gorgeous looks for Black Swan‘s Portman, but one particular ensemble stands out: “It’s her in Givenchy couture at the amFAR Gala in Cannes (above, left) which was in ’08,” Young tells Refinery29.

Natalie Portman was totally convincing as a professional ballerina in Black Swan. Her acting skills, of course, played a big part, but her lithe, toned body also made moviegoers believe she could actually be part of the corps.

That stunning transformation came courtesy of ballerina Mary Helen Bowers, a former New York City Ballet dancer who has since taken the celebrity world by storm — and penned a book about her routines.

After Portman’s Black Swan metamorphosis was revealed, other stars began requesting private sessions with Bowers. The demand persuaded her to create the “Ballet Beautiful” workout, which helps those not training for an Oscar-worthy role to get into shape.

Though Bowers teaches at an airy loft in N.Y.C. (and on Skype!), anyone can do her workouts at home now thanks to her new book, aptly named Ballet Beautiful ($13.32 on The tome includes her favorite workouts (both 60-minute and 15-minute “blasts”), offers solutions to weight loss and workout goals and features delicious, healthy recipes.
