Natalie Portman reminded the world that when it comes down to it, fashion has, and always will be, a form of protest and personal statement. And in her own, unique and subtle way, Natalie Portman did just that. Opting to wear a sheer, black paneled dress from Christian Dior Spring 2020 Haute Couture, Natalie added a special touch to the accompanying Dior cape in honor of female directors. Feeling that these eight female directors had been overlooked by the Academy (including Greta Gerwig), Natalie had their names delicately embroidered in gold along the edge of her Dior cape. Natalie stated the following when interviewed on the Oscars 2020 red carpet.
“I wanted to recognize the women who were not recognized for their incredible work this year in my subtle way.”
Natalie has always been a strong proponent of women’s rights and the move, though not a particularly overt one, was heard around the world and has become a trending story come Monday morning.
You may see a video clip of Natalie Portman stunning on the red carpet where she addresses the issue of the eight female directors’ names embroidered on her Dior cape in the video player below.
As for Natalie’s Oscar ensemble itself, she is winning high praise for the elegant look. Natalie chose a black bodysuit to pair underneath the sheer, lace fabric and looked stunning. She wore her hair in a straight, blunt-cut bob that reached just to her chin and she paired the gorgeous look with Cartier jewels. The Dior gown features delicate, gold detailing and the addition of the gold lettering smoothly blended with her outfit and jewels.
