Natalie Portman’s Cat-Eye At The ‘Lucy In The Sky’ Premiere Was As Iconic As Its Inspiration
Natalie Portman, star of forthcoming drama/fantasy film Lucy in the Sky, was a picture of grace at the Toronto International Film Festival 2019 on Weds. The Black Swan vibes were ringing loud and clear throughout the actor's all-black look, featuring a waist-hugging Dior Haut Couture gown with a fringed, floor-length skirt. The 38-year-old opted for diamond studs and a slicked updo that was all sorts of chic, showcasing Natalie Portman's cat-eye makeup stunningly.
The dazzling look was inspired by timeless beauty icon and queen of the statement cat-eye, Sophia Loren. Courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey, the striking eye look popped alongside dewy cheeks and a subtle rose-toned lip. Channeling the '60s Italian bombshell, Storey framed Portman's brown eyes with Dior On Stage Liner before reaching for the Dior Backstage Eye Palette to define the cat-eye further.
Serving major sophisticated glam, Portman's asymmetrical gown revealed her décolletage, blanketed with J'adore Lait Sublime Beautifying Body Milk and J'adore Gelée D'or Shimmering Body Gel, available to shop Oct. 2019. Closing out the film fest's final night with a bang, the mother-of-two cemented the power of a luxurious ball gown and a daring liner for an opulent evening out.
