Natalie Portman Turns Heads at Ballet Gala

Natalie Portman’s “Black Swan” days may be behind her, but the actress was still the belle of the ball at the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala on May 10. Not quite a year after the birth of her son, Aleph, Portman looked as slim and elegant as ever in a feminine, tiered Christian Dior gown in navy blue. On her arm, of course, was handsome hubby and ballet great Benjamin Millepied.

This was the pair’s first red carpet appearance since the Oscars, when they made their quiet debut as a married couple. The red Dior dress Portman wore that night reportedly sold for $50,000. The Shmooze wonders how much this one might fetch.
