Getting dressed up for a night at Tribeca Cinemas, Natalie Portman attended the kick-off Tribeca Film Festival event on April 21 in New York. When she's not onscreen, Natalie is one of those rare young celebs who is much better known for her behind the scenes work than her fashion choices. It seems like when it comes to her signature style, anything goes with Nat, so I have to wonder why she went with this frilly dotted dress (try more exciting options like Gold Hawk's Solid Ruffle Dress in Blush Charmus or add some color with the similar breezy style of Gold Hawk's Long Shoulder Garden Party Dress in Orange). The wrap dress style isn't bad, but the boring shape and ruffled collar looks frumpy with her mousy hair and absent jewelry. I do love the sharp pointy heels though - at least she added something modern to the vintage dress! To be fair, the crimson lips and matching nails give her a slightly elegant edge. What do you think of the complete look - is it appropriate for the event or totally snoozeworthy? Now that she's been getting comfortable behind the camera instead of in front of it, Natalie is expanding her directing career by helping young filmmakers gain experience by working with industry insiders from a range of departments. At the Tribeca evebt, Natalie introduced herself to twenty Film Fellows and unveiled her new website MakingOf.com to high school filmmakers in attendance. NP founded the website to give youngers a behind the scenes look at the entertainment biz, as explained by the site's mission statement: MakingOf is a behind-the-scenes Web portal, founded by Natalie Portman and Christine Aylward, that provides an intimate, fresh look into the process of creating entertainment by the insiders themselves. Our mission is to champion the art and craft of entertainment creation. We started MakingOf because we realized that so much of what goes into entertainment creation is unavailable to the people who love and consume it the most. We wanted to give fans a way to experience that creation and learn from the insiders and thus MakingOf was born. Are any of you film buffs interested in getting behind the camera one day - or at least browsing a website about it?
