Natalie Portman: HFPA Cocktail Party with Darren Aronofsky!

Natalie Portman rubs shoulders with director Darren Aronofsky, who helmed her latest movie Black Swan, at a cocktail party for Hollywood Foreign Press Association during the 2010 Venice Film Festival on Thursday (September 2) in Venice, Italy.

The pair mingled with HFPA exec Munawar Hosain.

Yesterday, Nat premiered Black Swan, which received wide critical acclaim.

Portman is astounding,” says the Times of London. “Awards are sure to follow.”

Adds Daily Telegraph‘s David Gritten, “Every film festival benefits hugely from a strong opening film, and they don’t come much stronger than Black Swan.”

FYI: Nat paired her purple Jason Wu dress with classic Christian Dior shoes.

  • twinkie

  • looks old

  • marilyn

    Someone likes to dress like a 12 year old and has no taste in classy fashion *person who commented”looks old”* natalie looks adorable. I love her outfit, she always keeps it classy. Great actress great person.

  • Bridie

    Love her dress – plain and simple, yet classy.

  • lexy hates bilson

    She looks lovely! Can’t wait for the movie. It’s getting great buzz.

  • she is

    She is an epitome of understated class and elegance.

  • me

    She never looks trashy or cheap or trying too hard, she is always classy. Whenever you see her you can safely imagine her on the campus of Harvard the way she dresses. I guess this girl can get out of Harvard but you can never get Harvard out of the girl. She is always so unique, she has a comfortable style of her own, never cheap or trendy, love her. She commands respect and admiration.

  • Meow

    Her dress and shoes are fine but she should of done a up’ do with her hair. would of looked more Audrey Hepburn like if she had and that would of made it look classy.

  • dancer

    Next year’s best actress Oscar statued has her name lasered on it already. Annette Bening is closest challenger. Angelina Jolie’s Tourist, as usual, has more hype than substance and sources say her acting/expression is rather stiff in that project, so is not a credible rival to Natalie Portman. She is the Hollywood woman to watch next year, with a few other high profile projects lined up, including one with Brad Pitt and several other leading men. 2011 will be her year. Watch out for this one!

  • captain

    She is the Audrey Hepburn of our era.

  • ida

    she looks good here. v good.

  • the truth

    @looks old: what you want her to wear? She just dressing down for this event. At least she work and being lazy.Love her.

  • @CAPTAIN

    AUDREY HEPBURN?? are you deranged she or any actress out there today can be another Audrey Hepburn get a grip of yourself youre talking apples and oranges now noway never ever!!

  • Marvin

    Natalie is dressed in a simple, comfortable and adequate way.
    She isn’t the ordinary kind of woman who likes to draw attention at all costs. Nath has their own brightness, she does not need a man or anyone to your side.

    People are dressed so common, many people wear jeans. She is dressed in a classic and discreet way.

  • A MESS

    she looks like an old lady dress like your age you can be classy and elegant for a young girl too not like a 80 yr old woman
