What Do You Think About Natalie Portman’s Wedding Dress?

I’m a huge fan of Natalie Portman. She’s a talented actress, an ethereal beauty, and a proud Jewess. Born in Israel, Natalie wears her Jewishness proudly as was captured this past Saturday night at her beautiful yet understated Big Sur, California wedding to Benjamin Millepied. A photo of the couple wrapped in a Tallis evokes strong emotion as it represents the melding of the beauty of the physical and the spiritual into one.

But let’s talk fashion for a moment… What about her dress? Fit for a true princess, Natalie’s dress, a simple tea length gown by Rodarte, was elegantly topped with a sheer lace overlay to softly cover her arms and chest. Bravo to Natalie for her sense of respect and modesty at such a revered time in her life. I believe her gown was perfectly apropos for her specific wedding setting; it was elegant, yet completely unstuffy.

That being said, allow me be perfectly honest for just one moment: I personally am NOT a fan of the dress. Maybe I feel a star of her status should have worn something slightly more glamorous, although I certainly may be biased by my own desire to see the most sparkling of gowns on hot Hollywood celebs. I am completely aware that those fantasy fueled confections may not have been well suited for the “earth goddess” theme her wedding imbued. And in that case, her choice of headpiece, a floral wreath, as well as her simple nude slippers, were just the perfect finishing touches to her entire wedding ensemble.



Now if you’re wondering about those “fantasy fueled confections,” here are some gowns that I may have chosen for Natalie. Each one is truly special in its own way, although ultimately, Natalie’s glowing smile proves that her choice of gown was just the perfect one for her!
