Natalie Portman: I've smartened up

Natalie Portman has her French style down these days.

The Oscar-winning actress lives in the French capital with her husband Benjamin Millepied and their four-year-old son Aleph.

Despite always looking glamorous on the red carpet and having the world's best designers clamouring to dress her, Natalie enjoys her style down time like anyone else. However, she's smartened up her act since moving overseas.

"I definitely pay more attention now to how I put myself together. In LA, I was very much wet hair and sweatpants. That's not acceptable in Paris!" she giggled to British Marie Claire.

"Listen, this is not fancy but it's as good as I can do. I've learned it's about simple, dark colours, I have ten shirts and ten pairs of pants. I work a lot and have a family, so I don't have more than five minutes to think what I'm wearing."

For the accompanying article Natalie models an array of stunning gowns. In one shot she looks magical in a purple Erdem number, which features hints of skin thanks to the lace work. Sheer materials were the order of the day, with a see-through Simone Rocha dress giving the illusion of nudity. White flowers adorn the material which adds more dimension.

A floor-length black Alberta Ferretti gown features long sleeves to the wrist. Black lace and sheer sections save the piece looking too heavy.

The make-up for the shoot was kept the same throughout, with the 34-year-old sporting winged eyeliner and a natural lip. Hair was given extra height, which complimented Natalie's dramatic feline flick.
