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.

Who wears it best? NATALIE PORTMAN or THE RUNWAY MODEL?

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.

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

# 3

Forget the dress, look at that face!

# 4

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!

# 5

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

# 6

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

# 7

Portman is a bad actress and is so anorexic.

# 8

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.

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

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

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

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…

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!

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

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

Natalie ! I like the color of her dress better…

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.

Natalie looks better than the model!

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.

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).

runway model!

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

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

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

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.
