Fashion Faceoff: Lanvin Dress

Fashion Faceoff: Lanvin Dress

Natalie Portman channels Audrey Hepburn once again (see Harper’s Bazaar November 2006) at the premiere of her romantic anthology film Je T’Aime on Tuesday night at the Paris Theater in New York City.

But instead of wearing Audrey‘s iconic little black dress, Natalie wore a modified Lanvin Yves Saint Laurent satin bubble dress from their Spring 2006 line.

To the right, Swedish supermodel Mona Johannesson.


UPDATE: Yves Saint Laurent reps confirm the dress is indeed YSL and not Lanvin.

    They both look good. But Natalie Portman gave the dress a personality whereas the model is basically a hanger for the dress. Natalie is so beautiful and a talented actress. She’s a natural beauty. I like that she doesn’t put a lot of make-up on her face or if any at all.

  • Amy

    Natalie gave it a bit more Audrey style, though I still think the bottom looks like a silk sack.

  • Kroq

    Forget the dress, look at that face!

  • Hey Now!

    Wow some smoky eyeliner and she doesn’t look like a 13 yr old. She looks so pretty! Well she is always pretty but she looks Like an actual WOMAN! Love the dress on her(natalie) love the outfit, makeup, bag everything!

  • kae

    Natalie of course! She looks great and she’s a wonderful role model. Love her!

  • Jo

    She looks good as usual but the dress is bloody hideous!

  • Ilene

    Portman is a bad actress and is so anorexic.

  • Jenna

    Comparing Portman to Audrey Hepburn is an insult. She’s nowhere Hepburn from the all around talents,personality and natural charm and class Audrey has.

    She’s not even a role model. I cant think of one in Hollywood quite frankly especially this era of Hollywood.

  • vbn

    love natalie’s modified version of the dress, and she is defenately not anorexic

  • lurker

    It’s not a great dress to begin with, but I’d have to go with Natalie.

  • Kitten

    Natalie of course, she looks amazing, love the hair the make up, and the dress is so cute

  • Judy

    Natalie of course. Natalie is beautiful, she has the most gracious face in all Hollywood, though I think that Audrey Hepburn can’t be compared to anybody, she is absolutely unique.
    I love the make-up, I love the hair, it’s very classy. The dress is rather fine on her, but to be honest, I think she should wear more flattering dresses. That dress is quite ugly…

  • Ruth

    100% Natalie, although the dress is ghastly. There was only one Audrey Hepburn and she was completely unique. Natalie is lovely, talented and, in time, may become a icon like Audrey but that will take many years!

  • jana

    I think the model wears it better, but Natalie is a lot more beautiful of course.

  • 1006

    Natalie is of course beautiful (so is the model) however, the dress is ugly for both of them. ewww.

  • jasss

    Natalie ! I like the color of her dress better…

  • bellissima

    The whole body pix arent flattering and those shoes arent flattering on her feet. It isn’t the best pick of a dress for Natalie. I actually think the model (I like the blue color more too) carries it better.

  • Lori

    Natalie looks better than the model!

  • anon.

    I adore Natalie!!! Think about it. Natalie will be 26 in June….Paris Hilton is 26. Nat’s not only beautiful and talented, she’s a good person. Her humanitarian acts have made the world a better place. Audrey Hepburn would be very proud of her. Both have beauty, class, and brains, but also good hearts…and I would love to see Natalie get together with Jake…but alas…they are both otherwise occupied.

  • Sweet Swede

    Natalie would have been so much better off wearing the blue version of the dress. The sharp contrast between the silver and the black ruins it for her. Model wins (though it looks dull on her).

  • Beep

    runway model!

  • AndrĂ©

    the dress is kinda weird..even in the model..but it’s impossible not to love Natalie.

  • memo

    why try to channel audrey?? why not be youself? i thought she was brave and smart.

  • ZzaRaZza

    Natalie looks awesome but the hem of a dress is hideous.

  • cc

    With make up i have to admit she looks good. In pics without, she is not good looking at all. One actress that comes to mind who looks good without any make up is Michelle Williams. The dress isn’t very nice looking, but it looks better on the model, on a taller person, Natalie is very short.

  • Amy

    Why would you even decide to claim she’s anorexic? She’s a petite girl, 5’3″, but there’s nothing about her to suggest she’s actually anorexic. She’s thin, but you don’t see ribs, you don’t see neck tendon. She looks healthy. She’s a vegitarean and she still manages to not look like a ghost.

    I’m not going to even start to argue your claim that she’s a terrible actress. I think the awards and nominations speak for themselves. All fans know she’s bad in Star Wars. Who wasn’t? Those don’t count.

  • kiwbelle

    Ugly dress period, but it does look better on the model. I don’t think she’s all that and she does not in any way compare to Audrey.

  • coco

    All pics of Natalie must have been taken by someone way taller because her legs look ridiculously short compare to the rest, totally unflattering. The dress in not great and looks much better on the model. But Natalie has a beautiful face.

  • Melody

    Natalie rocks!

  • Brooke

    NONE of the above.

    Im over Portman.

  • Jane

    The wide high-contrast belt makes Natalie look shorter. The dress would look a lot better on her if the belt was the same color as the dress.

  • Jules

    I don’t really like the dress, but it looks good on both girls! I love Natalie and Mona! :)

  • whatever

    Natalie Portman is prob. the most beautiful woman ever…and i don’t know why people think she is such a horrible actress….i mean she is not the best actress ever, but she is not bad by any means..come on.

  • Mary

    Natalie’s dress is actually a YVES SAINT LAURENT, NOT LANVIN. -sorry.

  • animilady

    I like Natalie’s face and make-up but the dress is horrible, even in the model!

  • david

    Natalie looks awful. The waistband is too big, and she’s not leggy enough to wear that dress. THe model wins, hands down. And it’s akward that it ends right above the knees on poor Nat.

  • Anthony

    Both look great

  • josh

    Natalie wins. The model looks dead and kinda matronly.

    As a guy, I’ve always though Audrey Hepburn was extremely overrated. Couldn’t act, annoying breathy-voice- even most of her costars didn’t like her. She was a sweet woman who did good deeds but she was hardly perfect.

    Natalie is gorgeous and she looks really stylish and classy. The smoky eye makeup thing is sexy as hell. She’s the best actress of her generation! (I don’t get the hem of the dress, though.)

  • Bibi

    Natalie, for sure!

  • DIC Celebrity Gossip

    Men and lesbians everywhere are just achin’ to get their hands on this beautiful and intelligent girl.
