Natalie Portman knocked it out of the park on Thursday, Sept. 18. Joined by her husband Benjamin Millepied, the actress looked elegant as ever wearing a textured, tri-color Dior dress to the New York City Ballet's fall gala, held inside the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Portman, 32, wore minimal makeup—save for a sexy smoky eye—and accessorized with a Richard Mille watch.
The Oscar winner the French choreographer weren't the only big stars who turned up for the soiree: Sarah Jessica Parker, 50 Cent, Martha Stewart, Drew Barrymore and Sean Avery posed for pictures on the red carpet as well.
Though Portman has been keeping a low profile as of late, that will soon change when she begins promotional duties for Thor: The Dark World, which hits theaters Nov. 8.
The sequel was originally meant to be the first superhero blockbuster directed by a woman, Patty Jenkins. However, the gig went to Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor instead.
"I was very upset because Patty is a wonderful woman" Portman recently told SciFiNow. "I was excited to work with her but I understood why she chose to leave and Alan is really wonderful, so it was bittersweet."
