Oscars 2020: Natalie Portman in Dior Couture

Posted on February 11, 2020


We thought this was an unusual set of choices, from the cape to the *shudder* robe belt to the sheer overlay and we were all set to subject it to a vote by throwing it all to the wolves Bitter Kittens, but there’s something you should probably know before you sharpen your claws.


From Dior: “Natalie Portman wore a black cape whose edge was embroidered in gold thread with the names of female directors whose critically-acclaimed films were ignored by the Academy this year.”

From Natalie Portman: “Honoring these remarkable women last night who were not recognized for their incredible work: Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Lorene Scafaria, Marielle Heller, Mati Diop, Melina Matsoukas, Alma Har’el and Céline Sciamma.”


Yeah, no. That’s too badass to subject to style critiques. And besides, the longer we look at it, the more we love that she comes off like she’s in some fabulously chic coven.
