Natalie Portman isn’t holding back on making a bold fashion statement amid rumors of her split from her husband, Benjamin Millepied.

The 42-year-old movie actress recently turned heads when she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, flaunting her revenge in a jaw-dropping little black dress (LBD) highlighting her well-toned physique.

The Everyone Says I Love You star subtly elevated her petite figure with black, open-toe, high-heeled shoes, completing the sultry look.

Portman’s glossy light brown locks, styled in a middle part with a sleek, straightened finish, gracefully framed her visage.

Her makeup comprised soft and complimentary hues, including a peach-toned blush and a lip stain providing moisturizing allure.

Even her manicured nails were kept short and adorned with a shiny red tint, matched with her pedicured feet, showcasing an attention to detail synonymous with her impeccable style.

Subtly Confirming Separation From Estranged Husband

Amidst the glamour, Natalie Portman seems to have subtly confirmed her separation from her estranged husband, Benjamin Millepied.

In a Wall Street Journal interview, she might have dropped a hint about the status of her 11-year marriage as speculation arose when she did not mention Millepied while discussing her life in Paris with her two children – her son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, six.

The rumors gained traction after the 46-year-old French dancer and choreographer was accused of infidelity with a 25-year-old woman in a bombshell report by Voici.

Since the cheating allegations surfaced, Portman has frequently been seen without her wedding ring, the last time being in early June at the 2023 French Open, just days after the scandal broke.

Although both have remained tight-lipped about the allegations, her solo appearance on the Golden Globes red carpet without her wedding ring fueled the speculation.

Solo Yet Stunning in Floral Dior Ball Gown at 2024 Golden Globe Awards

At the 81st annual Golden Globe Awards, Natalie Portman, a previous winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Closer in 2005 and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Black Swan in 2011, marked her fifth nomination.

During this prestigious ceremony, she earned a nomination for Best Actress in the Musical/Comedy category for her portrayal of actress Elizabeth Berry in the critically acclaimed film May December, also nominated for Best Picture. However, the award ultimately went to Emma Stone for her outstanding performance in Poor Things.

Adding to her presence at the awards, the Star Wars actress was honored to present the Best Animated Feature award alongside Florence Pugh. The Boy and the Heron claimed the prize.

Despite not taking home the coveted statue, Natalie Portman won hearts on the red carpet with her radiant presence, stealing the show with a breathtaking Christian Dior creation.

As a long-time ambassador for the French luxury fashion house, she sported a deceptively simple Dior Couture ball gown adorned with an Impressionist landscape of micro-flowers and vermicelli, crafted by the Chanakya School of Craft in Mumbai.

Portman revealed to WWD at the show, “My dress was hand-beaded and took hundreds of hours of work, so I’m really lucky to get to wear this—it’s like a garden on a dress.”

The empire waist and square neckline added sophistication to the gown, complemented by a floor-skimming hem concealing her feet. A pair of Jimmy Choo sandals provided the perfect elevation.

Accessorized with diamond drop De Beers Lea earrings, Portman let her dress shine, opting for a simple slicked-back long and low ponytail.
