Why is Natalie so pretty?
Long-time Brunette has had the bangs and has gone bald in the past, but this past weekend she really stepped up her game with going blonde. And it didn’t look bad – not even a little bit. In fact, it’s awesome and only adds more to how envious we really are of her. Natalie revealed her new look on the red carpet Saturday night for the L.A. Dance Project alongside husband Benjamin Millepied.
Natalie Portman is generally very private about her love life and even though she pulled off a secluded wedding, the papps weren’t able to leave her alone! I realize this post probably goes against Ms. Portman’s wishes, but can we just – for a second – admire her phenomenal Rodarte wedding gown? That fit! Those sleeves! The fresh flower garland. It all screams Natalie Portman.
Congrats to the very happy couple!

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millapied were married yesterday at their home near Big Sur, California in a traditional Jewish ceremony.
The couple met on the set of Black Swan when Millapied was the choreographer for the film.

[Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture]
I absolutely love this gown on her. It’s so refreshing to see her not wearing black for once since most of her press outfits and even gowns on the red carpet recently have been black.
I spent most of the day watching the red carpet special for the Academy Awards yesterday as E! decided to start it around one if not sooner. Unfortunately, thirty minutes into the show, I decided to give up on watching it to spend my time with some great company. It’s alright – the red carpet is usually the main priority for me…that was until Ashley sent me a text that said, “We could have easily made tonight a drinking game,” which meant that I was missing a whole lot of highlights from the show.
I suppose I can just read about the rest of the stuff that happened during the show. I did, however, witness Sacha Baron Cohen as the Dictator dump Bisquick all over Ryan Seacrest’s Burberry suit. Just watching him trying to contain his anger over the situation was entertaining enough.
And with that, let’s get into some red carpet looks!
Rose Byrne in Elie Saab Couture
I was actually impressed by most of the looks I saw on the red carpet this year at the 2012 SAG Awards -more so than the Golden Globes. Rose Byrne, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone were some of my favorites! I absolutely loved how Rose Byrne opted for a jumpsuit instead of a gown. It’s a risky choice, but the actress pulled it off. Also, her haircut is adorable with the look.
Charlize Theron in Dior completely gets Yow Yow’s stamp of approval for being the best dressed on the red carpet last night. There was a whole lot of cream and ivory, but gosh the simplicity and elegance of this gown made me melt. The headband was also what sealed the deal for me.
It looks like Mila and her former Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman have another similar project in common. They’ve both been tapped to work with Dior as brand ambassadors. Here are some of Mila’s new spring campaigns shot by photographer Mikail Jansson. The advertisements will be featured in the pages of magazines as early as January 15th first internationally and then in American fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
