Natalie Portman’s Venice Film Festival Dress Is Peak Cool Girl

When it comes to fashion, Natalie Portman can do no wrong. Case in point? Her totally laid-back (but luxe AF) Venice International Film Festival look.

Portman looked effortlessly chic in a black Dior cape mini dress from the pre-fall 2018 collection for her arrival at the 75th annual festival in Venice, Italy, today.

She accessorized the minimalist ensemble with Dior cat-eye sunglasses, strappy black heels and a perfect blowout, natch. Still, the best part of her outfit was hands down (get it?) the pockets, because couture or not, pockets are the best.   

Later, the Oscar winner made a high-glamour costume change and stepped out in a Gucci gown with a plunging neckline and a velvet belted waist.

With the bling, beading and strong set of shoulder pads, we couldn’t help but notice that Portman’s couture frock looked straight out of Dallas. Even so, it was absolutely perfect for Venice.
