Black Swan actress, Natalie Portman is certainly no ugly duckling.  With work in films such as V for Vendetta, No Strings Attached and Darjeeling Limited, she has proved to be one of the most versatile and talented actors in Hollywood.

Versed in much more than Hollywood matters, Portman is a Harvard graduate, an outspoken vegan, an anti-violence activist, and most recently, a mother.  Portman’s maternity leave has ended as filming has begun on Terrence Malick directed films, Lawless and Knight of Cups.  Both are due to premiere in 2013.

Portman is most noted for her Academy Award winning performance in 2010’s psycho-sexual thriller, Black Swan.

A daring actor and notoriously bold presence on the red carpet, Portman has been known to favor the flatteringly draped subtleties of Rodarte a well as stunningly sexy pieces from Dior.
