Rocking the Red Carpet

Natalie Portman in Christian Dior.  Sheer Perfection from head to toe. 

This evening, I put the kids to bed early, made a chocolate chip banana bread and some decaf cappuccino, and settled onto my couch to tune into the Emmy's Fashion Police.  Admittedly, I never make it through the live red carpet coverage of these award shows so I always count on Joan and her crew to bring me up to speed on the latest and greatest.  How disappointed was I when their best dressed nominees were Heidi Klum in that Vegas style Versace and Christina Hendricks in a boring, black Christian Soriano gown?  At that point, I decided to take matters into my own hands and scroll through Sunday evening's looks myself.  An hour later, after pouring over gown after gown, I was extremely disheartened.  Nothing jumped out at me....that is, until I spotted Natalie Portman in this exquisite color blocked dress by Christian Dior at the New York City Ballet's fall gala.  It got me thinking....does Natalie ever really get it wrong?  She knows what looks good on her body, she's not afraid to take a risk, and she always carries herself like a lady.  Here's a look back at Natalie's best red carpet moments.  What are some of your favorites?
