Instead of showing off with expensive clothing brand, Natalie Portman opted for a bargained but fashionable Topshop dress that was on sale for only $65 at the Oscars Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills. Portman is nominated for best actress at the Oscars for her portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie.” As one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Portman shows that dressing nice can be affordable.
Expecting her second child, Natalie Portman was unable to attend the 2017 Oscars last Sunday. Previously, Portman also went frugal with a dress from Topshop with an $80 navy shirt dress with black heels during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Jackie” is Portman’s third Oscar nomination. In 2010 she won the best actress award for “Black Swan.” During the Ellen DeGeneres Show Natalie Portman explained her love for the retail Topshop clothing while also wearing one of their shirt dresses.
Portman supported antipoverty activities, and she has traveled to Uganda, Guatemala, and Ecuador as the Ambassador of Hope for FINCA International, to help finance women-owned businesses in developing countries. Throughout the years, Portman has always been styling. At the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood, California, she charmed the crowd with a stunning dress.
Portman was born in Jerusalem as Neta-Lee Hershlag and later became Natalie Portman. She’s also super smart, and she chose to study at Harvard. She has said: “I’m going to college. I don’t care if it ruins my career. I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”
