Not afraid to take fashion risks, Natalie Portman camouflages her baby bump in a black and white dress the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in Palm Springs, CA on January. At the event Nat happily accepted the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award, which was presented to her by former flame Jake Gyllenhaal. Nothing like a pregnant encounter with your ex! For the gala Natalie chose a playful silk Vionnet frock with a noir ruffle accented skirt and sheer ivory yoke and sleeves accented by gold studded cuffs and collar with a dramatic tie back detail. To simplify the look, try Luc by Lucy's elegant Mesh It Up Mini Dress in Grey or Carter's Twist on the Classic Dress in Black, and if you want to add some gold shine try Anna Beck's Bali Multi Disk Cuff in Gold. Nat completed the look with gorgeous crystal encrusted Christian Dior heels and a ruched satin handbag (like Inge Christopher's Theda Oversized Clutch in Black). Emphasizing the masculinity of the neckline, Natalie slicked her hair back into a tight chignon and added some extra sparkle with her dazzling engagement ring. It's been almost three weeks since the news broke that 29 year-old Nat is engaged and expecting her first child with choreographer Benjamin Millepied, whom she met while filming Black Swan in New York. Natalie rarely confirms or denies rumors about her relationships, but she did confirm the news to People: "I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience." She continued in an interview this week with Fox News: "I feel so, so lucky. I am trying to take it all in and enjoy everythingÖ It makes me feel calmer about everything to be in such a lucky place in my personal life." When asked if she will continue working after she becomes a mama, Natalie replied: "I have no idea (if motherhood will influence my role choices). I just have no idea what it is going to be like. Iíll figure out the right choices when it happens." Looks like she has a lot to look forward to over the next few months!
