Hospital gown

Did Natalie Portman become the spokesperson for a new line of organic Japanese hospital gowns? What else would compel her to don this sad frock?

I think she got her combover styled at the Donald Trump hair salon. It looks like a female version of The Donald’s infamous ‘do — frizzy ends and all.

Bold and edgy

September 2, 2008 at 10:58 am (Clutch, Natalie Portman, Sheer) (, , , , , , )

I am mixed on Natalie Portman’s bold Rodarte dress. It is an edgy choice to be sure. And I’m not the edgiest person you’ll ever meet. So perhaps the fact that I don’t *hate* it is a good start.

We’ve been seeingĀ a lot of sheer lately, and I still can’t help but feel more figure skating costume than haute couture. I don’t mind the skirt overlay, but think it is a bit much on the sleeve.

Overall, I think the look is a little busy to be considered edgy. I don’t know where to look, so my eyes bounce around from the skirt to the sleeves to the cut-outs to the pattern to the trim to the pom poms on her shoes to her purse. I also think that Natalie should have opted for a simpler hairstyle .

Jagged Little Hem

May 27, 2008 at 3:17 pm (Natalie Portman, Stripes) ()

First I’ll say that I love Natalie Portman’s fashion sense. She goes forĀ  edgy choices. The downside is that (occasionally) those edgy choices won’t work out. Unfortunately, this is one of those choices.

I like the idea of the dress. And I usually like stripes. It is accessorized impeccably. Everything other than the dress looks great.

But on a slow celeb-photo weekend, this dress gets the ax. The stripes are sewn with an exposed, jagged, raw hem so it looks like she is wearing the dress inside out. The fabric looks like muslin. I know Ms. Portman likes to earthy and organic materials, but this isn’t appropriate for an evening look. And the gathering around the midsection doesn’t make any sense.
