Natalie Portman in Christian Dior at the 2014 Shanghai International Film Festival

Posted on June 23, 2014

Natalie’s just so damn tasteful all the time that we can’t help but picture her as completely foul-mouthed and crass behind closed doors. It’s more entertaining that way to assume she talks like a sailor on leave.

Very tasteful and elegant, in a “meeting world leaders” kind of way. But the proportions are so wrong for her. She’s a tiny little thing and she clearly doesn’t need such a high waist on her getups. Although to be fair, the proportions don’t seem to be working much better on the model. We’re not sure how a designer looks at a dress like this and doesn’t see how much it obscures the natural shape of a woman’s body – and not in an interesting or expressive way. More in a “let’s turn a gamine into a waistless brick.” way.

Also, that giant outside pocket looks like a satin blister. There. We said it.
