Every once in awhile an event comes along that reminds us just how gorgeous Natalie Portman is, and she pulled off a stunning look at the screening of her latest film presented at the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on September 16. All I can say is Nat is working with a great stylist these days!! Her fuchsia Lanvin gown is absolutely stunning, even if it is a bit inappropriate for frigid temps (to nab the bright look, try Interlud's Stitch Hem Halter Dress in Red or Qi Cashmere's Racerback Pocket Dress in Bright Rose). I have a penchant for bright colors but there's something about the hot pink floral with the red poppy on the bust, accented by NP's crimson nails and blood red pout that I am absolutely gaga over. Especially because I didn't expect it from Natalie – let's face it, her style isn't exactly cutting edge for most occasions. She completed the look with modest Aldo pumps and a pair of colorful cluster earrings (try Calico Juno's Princess 104 in Pink Sapphire). What do you think of the 'fit? Ms. Portman was attending the screening of her newest film Love and Impossible Pursuits, which she co-produced while starring alongside Lisa Kudrow, Scott Cohen and Charlie Tahan. The LA Times Blog gave an outstanding review, noting the fact that NP signed on to the project 10 days before filming began to replace Jennifer Lopez: "Perhaps [Natalie] should take all her roles with so little preparation, as she seems to inhabit the part so completely it is difficult to imagine anyone else in it. She doesn't exhibit the plucky spirit so often asked for of younger actresses, but rather an armored wariness and defensive hostility that is remarkable to encounter. Though the film may at times be less than perfect, Portman gives a startlingly rounded and full-blooded performance." Rather refreshing to see such a positive review online! Are you interested in the flick?
