Her latest film’s called Lucy in the Sky – named after The Beatles song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, but Natalie Portman was giving us all the Black Swan vibes with her choice of outfit for the premiere.
The Oscar winner let her black, one-shouldered lace dress by Christian Dior speak for itself at the Toronto International Film Festival screening, pairing it with a smoky eye and sleek hairdo that was reminiscent of her ballerina alter-ego in the 2010 psychological thriller.
Aside from a simple pair of earrings, Natalie chose to forgo jewellery altogether at the last night’s premiere of the movie, instead favouring a striking, unfussy look to go with the asymmetrical neckline of the dress.
The actress is of course known for her compelling character studies, and her new flick looks set to be no exception.
The hotly-anticipated Lucy in the Sky, directed by Noah Hawley, previously known for his work on the Fargo TV series, focuses on an astronaut named Lucy who returns to Earth after a life-changing space mission.
The science fiction movie also stars Mad Men actor Jon Hamm (who plays Natalie’s love interest) and Ellen Burstyn, best known for her roles in 70s classics like The Exorcist and Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.
In a mixed review of the film following its festival debut, Variety said of Natalie: ‘[She] radiates confidence in the role, ably masking the character’s well-hidden vulnerability.’
Lucy in the Sky, loosely based on real-life astronaut Lisa Nowak, is due for release on 4 October.
Natalie’s other screen credits include last year’s tense pop star drama Vox Lux, and of course psychological thriller Black Swan, for which she won Best Actress at the 2011 Oscars.
In other Natalie news, in recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, the star spoke out against society’s beauty standards of women.
‘As a woman, you are constantly fighting against only being valued for your looks, because it’s a very tenuous thing, to be defined by the gaze of others, the opinion of others,’ she said.
‘And beauty, by definition, is ephemeral. It’s a thing you can’t trap in time. It’s a butterfly, it lives for a second.
‘So to make a lifetime worthwhile and have meaning cannot rest on beauty.’
