Natalie Portman Proves Maternity Style Doesn't Have to Be Boring

Right now we're more than interested in Natalie Portman's costumes in her latest movie, Jackie, but the star's personal style is also something to behold. You'll be familiar with her many jaw-dropping red carpet turns—Portman's most recent outing at the SAG Awards was nothing short of perfection and elegance—but it's not that often we get to see NP in an off-duty realm. So to actually witness the award-winning actress look incredibly sophisticated on her way to the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in L.A. was quite a rarity.

Natalie's latest ensemble consisted of a super-flattering off-the-shoulder, handkerchief-style dress. With its wrap-around neckline, plissé pleated fabric and peplum-detailed waistband, it's a surprisingly brilliant choice for the girl who doesn't want to give up on looking ladylike throughout her pregnancy. The cut of this pretty Dior number makes the most of Portman's growing bump while also being entirely comfortable, chic and timeless to boot. Not a bad deal to strike.

Paired with some simple pointed ballet pumps (how many times do we have to tell you these are back?) and fail-safe accessories in the form of gold hoops (always a winner) and reflective sunglasses (no A-list worth their salt goes anywhere without them), and you have yourself a winning look.
