Pregnant Natalie Portman has turned to an old favorite to craft her maternity wear for awards season – she showed off her baby bump on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night with a purple gown by Rodarte, who also designed costumes for Black Swan.
The actress, nominated for Best Actress, was glowing in her off-the-shoulder gown with pleats falling down the middle of her growing belly. She wore matching Tiffany earrings and sported flushed cheeks as she worked the carpet.
But, she told ABC’s Robin Roberts, all that glamour isn’t her ultimate joy. “Staying at home with messy hair in sweats … is the biggest luxury of all,” she said.
