Natalie Portman 'Black Swan' Premiere at Venice Film Festival!

Natalie Portman 'Black Swan' Premiere at Venice Film Festival!

Natalie Portman is red hot in Rodarte at the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Venice Film Festival at the Sala Grande Palazzo Del Cinema on Wednesday (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

The event, which was also attended by her boyfriend Benjamin Millepied, was also the premiere of her new movie, Black Swan.

Director Darren Aronofsky recently shared, “One of the best things about the film is the casting of Natalie. She took the part and ran with it. I don’t know if when I was working with the writers we were consciously channeling Natalie or Natalie somehow transformed herself to the part, but they grew together. I first talked with Natalie about this project at least 10 years ago. We were in Times Square and had a coffee at the old Howard Johnson. I had this idea of setting something in the ballet world. It was very loose. I didn’t have a script. And then I found out she was fascinated by ballet and wanted to play a dancer.”

FYI: Natalie wore Charles David shoes and a Dior bag.

Beautiful, love her.

Aronofsky’s films are really trippy, but this just sounds ridiculous…I don’t know how the horror thing is going to mix in with the world of ballet…I’d probably rent it on DVD though

I like her because she’s not attention seeker compare to other actress of her age

She’s so classy and pretty. She can really wear colors. I’ve seen her wear bright blue, purple, fuschia and now red and they are always lovely on here.

Breathtakingly beautiful and so talented.

DISGUSTING!!!! @ 09/01/2010 at 3:05 pm

POLANSKI SUPPORTER!

She looks amazing. What a way to start September, which is a hectic month for film festivals! I also love how she tries different colours. Always so vibrant and elegant.

@Vanessa Moreland: I agree, it really is unfair. She is flawless in every sense of the word, a true beauty

No pun intended, but she looks kind of Star-Warsy in this getup. Great color though, and great face.

Congrats on her new movie.Why include him in this. If he wouldn’t taught her to dance he wouldn’t be with her here. He’s the one who seeking somehing from her anyway.No one mention him at all!As soon as this is done it over.Why don’t people mention that he’s her boyfriend anyway. Natalie is still lovely but hayden look better with her still. This loser just going on for the ride are natalie success .Cause he don’t have nothing but being a ballet teacher.And natalie don’t mention him as her boyfriend cause he’s a nobody. But she still is lovely and talented JJ you can’t make them be together in these picures its not working. He just came alone cause he taught her how to dance and for attention for hisself.

absolutely gorgeous!!! she is a representation of what actresses should be these days. she is so classy and elegant.

@stacy: Agree with you there. Don’t think she feel right for being her boyfriend with her there. Her and hayden look better with each other at the event than with Ben.She seem less interested being Ben with her.But still have beauty and grace where ever she goes.Always have grace its never change her at all. Love her

Exquisite!!

WERK! I love Natalie, she’s so talented.

very lovely indeed!

Cheap-looking dress.

ugly lollipop head.

CanadaGirl @ 09/01/2010 at 4:05 pm

She looks lovely in these photos. Her grecian inspired dress is gorgeous and the colour is sophisticated. I agree with @purple poet: and @megan: that Natalie is quite classy.

she’s like a goddess: classy, beautiful, smart and verty talented. She has great taste, in all levels. And I agree she’s not an attention seeker

Insanely beautiful …gotta love her hairdresser too!
