Natalie Portman stole the show at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, May 20, captivating audiences with not just one, but two incredible ensembles. The 41-year-old Oscar winner first wowed in a stunning red mini dress and matching jacket, leaving everyone in awe. She then caused a stir by donning a recreated version of Christian Dior’s iconic ‘Junon’ dress from 1949, which quickly gained attention on Twitter.

Being a Dior ambassador comes with perks, and in this case, Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri designed the gown specifically for Natalie, according to Parade. Natalie herself has been sharing her Cannes looks on Instagram, including a post where she gushed about her lilac purple Celine gown on May 20.
Natalie graced the Cannes red carpet alongside her co-stars from the film “May December,” including Julianne Moore, Charles Melton from Riverdale, Cory Michael Smith, and director Todd Haynes. The movie, in which Natalie portrays a Hollywood actress researching the life of Gracie (played by Julianne), who stirred headlines by starting a romance with Joe (Charles Melton), a man 23 years her junior, received a standing ovation lasting six minutes at Cannes, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Before the festival, Natalie shared her past experiences at Cannes, recalling her debut in 2002 when “Star Wars: Episode II” premiered. She mentioned having a shaved head for her role in “V for Vendetta,” and attending Cannes with that look. She also mentioned her film “Free Zone” being in competition that year and fondly remembered how people playfully rubbed her bald head like a troll doll.
