Natalie Portman Channels Star Wars Vibes With Her Galactic Gown

We think Natalie Portman should have been honoured, not only for her charitable efforts, but also for her impeccable style at last night’s LA Children’s Hospital Gala. 

The Oscar-winning actress shone on the red carpet in a dazzling metallic silver dress as she was honoured at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Gala: Noche de Ninos at LA Live. Accompanied by husband Benjamin Millepied, the 33-year old looked every bit a goddess in her floor-skimming sleeveless Dior number. Ruching at the waist and showing off her petite figure, all eyes were on the yummy mummy of one as she collected the Courage To Care Award for her dedication and support of the hospital’s mission and the patients.

Natalie accessorised simply with silver heeled sandals, diamond hoop earring and an embellished maroon Dior clutch. Wearing her hair down and natural make-up, the star nailed this red carpet look from head to toe. The Black Swan actress was joined by a number of other A-listers at the event including Teri Hatcher and Denise Richards but it was Natalie who really stole the show.

Looking to the catwalks for Autumn/Winter; shimmering silvers were seen all over, from House of Holland’s glistening green metallics to metallics in every colour imaginable at Ashish.

With the designers and celebs rocking the shine trend, we think our autumn wardrobes could do with a little shimmering up. We love this futuristic metallic silver dress from Lavish Alice, £45 and this gold leather-look metallic skirt from River Island, £30. Topshop is the go-to for metallics this season with this blue metallic cami, £25, which also comes in green and ASOS have hundreds of metallic shoes in every colour and style imaginable but our favourite has to be these mermaid-esque courts from Dune, £85. For the ultimate metallic accessory this purple clutch from French Connection, £50 will make any outfit stand out.
