Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Black Swan In Red

-------

Natalie Portman is in Venice today, for the world premiere of her new film, the Darren Aronofsky-directed ballet drama, The Black Swan. Portman’s friends Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte designed the costumes for the flick, so three guesses who Natalie opted to wear to its premiere. The claret-hued silk tulle Rodarte gown—with a Swarovski crystal-encrusted bodice for extra shine—is pure, old Hollywood glamour; Rodarte is often known for moody, goth-tinged frocks, but this sweeping number looks borrowed from the closet of Veronica Lake. All to the good, we’d say. Portman finishes the look with an upswept chignon, sheer red footless stockings, and subtle T-strap heels. We’d call it a red-carpet win. How about you?

Update: The people have spoken—and corrected our error. Closer investigation reveals the tulle on Portman’s foot is part of her dress, not her stockings. Side note: Can somebody get on making sheer, red, footless stockings ASAP? We want a pair—enough even to hallucinate them.

    “sheer red footless stockings”? That is the hem of her gown, no?

    Those aren’t footless stockings, that is a layer of illusion from her dress.

    i’m pretty sure she’s not wearing any stockings. it’s just a layer of tulle from her skirt. :)

    to admit error is human, to then say the error is divine inspiration is unforgivable. sheer red footless stocking – and that sag, no.
