Natalie Portman In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2012 SAG Awards

Natalie Portman posed for photographers in the press room at the 2012 SAG Awards this evening wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2012 Couture gown, which is already our second look from this collection which was presented last Monday.

Whilst her burgundy strapless silk-chiffon gown with a bow detail on the bust is very elegant, she fails to breathe any life into it.

Even with the Harry Winston jewels and Judith Leiber glittering clutch, the whole look feels quite lifeless.

    It’s a gorgeous dress!

    I loved this on the run away, to looks amazing in motion. Natalie looks lovely but the dress does lose all its spark

    I think she looks better here than she has all season. I love this gown.

    obsessed with this look, but for some reason, she just never impresses me..

    I love Natalie Portman and I like most of her dresses. Even if they’re not as stunning as others. She makes me looking good. But this is very blah. This color is just not pretty.

    She looks really uncomfortable and stiff, so perhaps it’s a little tight. She also looks like she’s about to cry. The dress is gorgeous, and was a good theoretical pick for her, given that this is her colour. I also cant help but wonder if gold accessories would be better to suit her warm complexion and the dress colour.

    She looks beautiful and the gown suits her perfectly but there’s something missing, she’s not feeling it.

    I think she looks lovely. I much prefer this to her Lanvin at the GG’s which looked stiff and paegenty.

    I actually love this look from head to toe. I think she looks better than the runway model, and her hair and make-up are flawless. It’s too bad we didn’t see it on the actual red carpet.

    The model simply rocks it!

    The dress is georgeous, but I agree it fails to look great on Natalie, she is just kinda.. boring. How can she be the current Oscar winner and not “play a part” while on these ceremonies?

  12. rebecca o January 30, 2012 at 11:28 #

    This dress is completely lifeless on her. Someone else could have rocked this at the Oscars. What a waste of couture!

    • Michelle January 30, 2012 at 17:41 #

      Yeah, I agree. As lovely and talented as Portman is, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her ‘rock’ anything outside of the big screen. She’s one of those actresses who can light up a screen when she’s playing a part, but then when it comes to her in real life, it’s all very underwhelming.

    Just ‘blah’… I just don’t feel it despite the dress being beautiful and all. Fail to me!

  14. eimearoconnor January 30, 2012 at 10:04 #

    She looks deviiiiiine!

  15. Li January 30, 2012 at 09:09 #

    Natalie has always struck me as a timeless and elegant beauty, and this dress personifies that. It is elegant, timeless and a classic. Not every actress has to wear cutting-edge fashion all the time.

    the whole look feels wilted, just like the flower on the front of the dress.

  17. MEME January 30, 2012 at 06:07 #

    She looks AMAZING!!!…

    I think it has something to do with the lifeless expression on her face – her pose isn’t the most inspiring either. But the dress is gorgeous!

    • Alina January 30, 2012 at 11:11 #

      +1. Stunning dress.

  20. Nat39 January 30, 2012 at 05:44 #

    She needed to find her inner Black swan for this look. She looks like one stiff ballerina. Maybe less ballerina-esque hairstyle would`ve helped.

    I adore this dress on the runway and Natalie looks lovely but something is missing. Perhaps it is just as you say and Natalie isn’t bringing anything to it because she has the clutch and the accessories but it still feels unfinsihed. Perhaps a thin belt would have added some drama or a bold lipstick??
