Enjoying the recent warm weather in Los Angeles, Natalie Portman ventured out to the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood on January 16. Natalie donned one of her favorite sundresses from last summer: a red, yellow and blue striped mini with a nautical theme (try CoutureCandy’s colorful array of minis for spring like Misile’s Amsterdam Dress in Navy Stripe or Lotta Stensson’s fancier Satin Shirt Dress in Grey). Resist the urge to sneer at her for repeating such a boring look – I’m pretty sure she’s into that whole environmentally-friendly-recycle-your-wardrobe thing. And is that such a bad thing, really? Natalie is also carrying the same woven tote from the summer, but the sunny new flats and classic navy cardigan perk up her look. With a brighter tote (like Antoinette Lee’s adorable Dolce Handbag in White), this ‘fit would be adorable for spring! Natalie completed her look with gold Ray Ban’s, a long wrapped necklace (check out Rachel Leigh’s versatile Lucky Coin Necklace in Banana) and a few mini braids gathered into a bouncy ponytail. It’s very juvenile but as you can see Nat is having fun with it, even if she’s sacrificing fashion a little. Would you rock a similar ‘fit on a sunny day? Natalie has been laying pretty low over the past few weeks, but lately she’s surfaced in LA and looks much happier than usual. With several impending movie releases including New York, I Love You and Brothers, it’s good to see Natalie enjoying herself before the rush of promo appearances begins. Natalie is also taking part in yet another short funny internet flick: she and Michelle Williams are appearing in an art film that starts with the gorgeous gals fighting over a perfume bottle and ends in a cat-fight on a hotel suite floor. The film’s director Roman Polanski and Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli appear to be poking fun at high profile fragrance ads starring celebs, like Nicole Kidman for Chanel, Charlize Theron for Dior, and the slew of other celebs that star in their own overly dramatic perfume slots, including Britney Spears. What are your thoughts on celebrity fragrances – do you wear them, or do you think they’re overly hyped?

This is the third time I saw her in this dress and it looks like it is from the third grade ~Sguest on Feb 05 2009 @ 04:53 AM
I like it. It's adorable x3guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:51 AM
The shoes ruin the look. Some strappy couture sandals would have been a much better fit. Plus this dress looks much better on a hot day and without the cardiganguest on Feb 05 2009 @ 01:09 PM
nice dress, A DUSTER, folks?guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:36 PM
I wouldn't call recycling your wardrobe wearing a piece of clothing more than once. It's what we all do. At least I hope so.guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 07:42 PM
She's worn the same bag for the past year... and that dress at least 3 times... normal for the rest of us but look at all of the free stuff other celebs get and never wear the same thing twice. good for her for not being afraid to do her own thingguest on Feb 10 2009 @ 10:39 AM
