Pregnant Natalie Portman has turned to an old favorite to craft her maternity wear for awards season – she showed off her baby bump on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night with a purple gown by Rodarte, who also designed costumes for Black Swan.

The actress, nominated for Best Actress, was glowing in her off-the-shoulder gown with pleats falling down the middle of her growing belly. She wore matching Tiffany earrings and sported flushed cheeks as she worked the carpet.

But, she told ABC's Robin Roberts, all that glamour isn't her ultimate joy. "Staying at home with messy hair in sweats ... is the biggest luxury of all," she said.





Portman had a good omen going into Sunday's awards show – she'd just won an Indie Spirit award the previous night. She told Ryan Seacrest it wasn't all about winning, though.

"I'm excited," she said. "I feel like it's going to be a fun show to watch this year."

Portman announced in December she was pregnant, and engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied.
