NATALIE PORTMAN: INGENUE

Natalie Portman has a fresh and romantic appeal when it comes to her fashion choices. Whether going retro in a '20s-style dress (left, in New York in July) or ramping up the red carpet in flowing fuchsia or jewel tones (center, in New York in July; right, in L.A. in November), the Best Supporting Actress nominee (for Closer) favors soft, feminine looks that give her a graceful air.
