Natalie Portman joined Lupita Nyong’o in gracing the opening ceremony and premiere of La Tete Haute (Standing Tall) at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, yesterday.
If Lupita gave us our princess moment, Natalie was the one who brought the old Hollywood glamour. Though predictably in Dior, the 33-year-old actress was a sight for sore eyes in a red strapless column gown. A notch at the pointed bustline added a bit of an edge while De Grisogono drop earrings upped the glam factor. Classic waves and neutral-tone makeup kept Natalie’s look clean and elegant.

While we love Natalie’s look, we were a bit disappointed to see that she repeated the black satin sandals she just wore in her last red carpet appearance. Not that there’s anything wrong with repeating shoes, but considering this is the Cannes Film Festival, we were hoping for something really special. If Lupita got a custom-made Gucci look from head-to-toe, shouldn’t Natalie as Dior’s brand ambassador have gotten one, too?
