In the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Natalie Portman dons the little black dress made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And she makes it completely her own. Check out the gorgeous pictures. [SOURCE]
Natalie wore the 35-year old dress in hopes of promoting style fans to spend more money when it is auctioned off in December. Proceeds from the auction, on December 5, will go to City Of Joy Aid – a charity organization that helps India’s poor. The dress is expected to fetch upwards of $94,000. [SOURCE]
Sigh. If only I had $94,000.
Today’s starletts and screen sirens are taken cues from the leading ladies of the past.
Take a look:
Scarlett Johansen – Marilyn Monroe
Penelope Cruz – Sophia Loren
Gwyneth Paltrow – Grace Kelly
Kate Beckinsale – Ava Gardner
Audrey Tatou – Audrey Hepburn

I had my Senior Prom on Thursday night (6.1) and aside from being the five most pointless hours of my life, it wasn’t so bad. The best for me was the dressing up all fancy part.
Unlike most of my classmates, who were going for the Paris Hilton meets Jenna Jameson look, I didn’t go for the provacative and disgusting prom dress topped off with an orange glow fake tan. (Although it was entertaining to see those who did.)
Instead I modeled my attire after Grace Kelly.
The black dress from Rear Window was the main inspiration for my dress. And with a few updates, this is my version of 1950’s glam. (I did make sure to wear my mom’s pearls.)
I liked it. Except for the part when I had to explain my idea for dress. (“Who’s Grace Kelly?”) At least I tried.
This is a shocking moment in Red Carpet Fashion. More shocking than Jennifer Lopez’s grammy dress (you know the one that left little to the imagination.) Are you ready for this travesty?
Reese Witherspoon has learned that the dress she wore to the Golden Globe Awards is the same dress that Kirsten Dunst wore to the 2003 GG Awards. Did you follow that?
Witherspoon wore Dunst’s 2003 gown.
Reese Witherspoon was horrified when she learnt that the gown designed for her for the Golden Globe Awards had been worn by Kirsten Dunst in 2003.
Witherspoon, who won Best Actress for Walk The Line, wore a white-and-silver ‘vintage’ Chanel dress only to learn later that it had been recycled. (dun dun dun)
Witherspoon’s representative Nancy Ryder is said to have vowed not to accept anything from Chanel again, or let her other clients, including Jennifer Lopez and Renee Zellweger, wear anything from the French couture house.
‘Reese was told the dress was vintage. It was not. I’m not angry — just a little disappointed. But the big deal is Reese won the Golden Globe,’ she was quoted by the New York Post as saying.
Because I am totally on Team Reese, I refuse to ever buy/wear anything from Chanel. They’re gonna miss my business! All sarcasm aside, the whole story is ridiculous and I find it to be really humorous. What is ironic is how Reese looks pretty in the dress while Kirsten looks like a little girl. I have nothing left to add because I’m laughing so hard.
