Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman is a longtime role model to us all, partly because of her ethereal fashion sense, but also due to the brains behind her beauty. Unlike many acclaimed celebs, Portman briefly set her acting career on the back burner to get a degree at Harvard. We love that Portman is a triple threat of brains, talent and beauty and that her chic and polished fashion sense is simply the cherry on the cake to her entire persona. Portman rarely disappoints on the red carpet and has proven to take risks that always end successfully. Her petite and ballerina-like frame was made for fashion and has caused designers to flock towards her requesting to don their latest creation. Follow along for Portman’s style evolution throughout the years — from her early teenage roles, to her Black Swan debut and even her iconic maternity style:
Premiere of Mars Attacks! — 1996
Similar to other celebrities who appeared on the red carpet at a young age, Portman definitely had a few red carpet misses during her early years in Hollywood. At just 15 years old, Portman stepped out at the Mars Attacks! premiere wearing an entirely emerald green ensemble. It’s clear that her youthful complexion is still elegant and beautiful even in her early teens, but we unfortunately can’t say the same for this monochrome color palette. Hopefully we can write off this Mr.Grinch-inspired outfit to Portman simply being young and naive.
Los Angeles Premiere of Cold Mountain — 2003
Portman stepped out at a Los Angeles premiere in 2003 donning a more mature style, but still an unlikely combination in comparison to her current elegant and timeless fashion sense. The mid length tulle skirt and sheer bustier revealed a silk layer of wrinkles and bumps underneath that was quite unflattering on Portman. The star has become iconic for groundbreaking hairstyles, but we can’t say this raven-colored bob with a thick bang flattered Portman’s delicate features in the best way possible.
