Rocking a velvet Dior dress, Natalie Portman made an epic red carpet comeback as she hosted a garden party during the Cannes Film Festival. This marked the star’s 1st official appearance since welcoming daughter Amalia 12 weeks ago, & her post-baby bod is beyond impressive!
Natalie Portman, 35, definitely had that new mama glow as she hit the red carpet on May 16 for the first time since giving birth to her and her hubby Benjamin Millepied‘s, 39, second child, daughter Amalia Millepied, on Feb. 22. In her velvet midnight-blue Dior gown, the Oscar-winner oozed effortless elegance, and we can’t believe how quickly she lost all her pregnancy weight! In fact, Natalie’s waist looked itty bitty, giving no hint that a large baby bump was there just earlier this year! The new mom, who’s also the proud parent of son Aleph Portman-Millepied, 5, was actually the host of the evening as she welcomed 150 guests at Christian Dior’s Château de la Colle Noir for a garden party during the Cannes Film Festival. The party was to celebrate her newest campaign for Miss Dior.
In her stunning Dior dress, which was part of the fall collection, Natalie was joined by her husband, and together they made quite a power couple. The star wore minimal makeup and had her brown locks styled in a glamorous up ‘do. On her wrist she flashed an emerald Fred Leighton cuff — SO gorgeous! Her stylist, Kate Young, ended up posting an Instagram pic of the celeb, which was met with with a myriad of compliments. “She’s flawless 😍,” one commenter wrote. Another gushed, “So beautiful and amazing dress.” We couldn’t agree more!
Her Dior event comes just three weeks after Natalie was seen returning to work on a photoshoot in Beverly Hills, California in late April. The brunette beauty and her man, who tied the knot back in 2012, welcomed baby Amalia on Feb. 22. Days later, in March, her rep said that “mother and baby are happy and healthy.” Due to her newborn’s birth, Natalie was unable to attend the Oscars even though she was nominated for best actress for her role in Jackie.
