Mathilda, Evey Hammond and Alice Ayres - these are some of the beautiful characters Natalie Portman brought to life.
I did mention in an earlier post that I'll be showing off Natalie Portman's most memorable movie looks to me. If you're not yet acquainted with these characters, better look up the titles and I suggest you do a proper Natalie movie marathon. ;)
Alice Ayres/Jane Jones in Closer (2004)
That short hair. That red hair. That pink wig. And the best opening and ending scenes of a movie.

Nina Sayers in Black Swan (2010)
I knew in my heart that she'd win an Oscar for a Best Actress role someday and she did (yay!). I'm not a fan of her transformation into this deathly skinny ballerina but the black swan make up is now an iconic movie look all thanks to Makeup designer Judy Chin.
Leslie in My Blueberry Nights (2007)
She was a curly blonde-haired poker player & I wished there was more of her in this movie.
|If you're wondering, that is Norah Jones in the blurry foreground.|
Mathilda in Léon: The Professional (1994)
This is Natalie's breakout performance as the lolita-esque and troubled teen Mathilda with veteran actors Jean Reno and Gary Oldman also starring in the film.
Anne Boleyn in The Other Boleyn Girl (2008)
She makes a lovely queen and it's nice seeing her do a period piece for a change. Although Natalie Dormer of The Tudors is still my favorite Anne Boleyn.
Evey Hammond in V for Vendetta (2006)
With such interesting and complex set of characters, this is one of my favorite movies to watch on repeat. Natalie looks gorgeous with or without hair apparently.
Inés Bilbatúa in Goya's Ghosts (2006)
I hated the film (maybe that's why this is so memorable) but this is the first time onscreen that Natalie "bares it all" for a scene and then regrets having done it. This is a memorable look from her but it's the least beautiful and most tragic one.
Francine in Paris, je t'aime (2006)
This is an anthology movie featuring different shorts filmed in the arrondissements of Paris. She wears this wig briefly (too briefly, in fact) but I do love seeing her try something new onscreen
Padmé Amidala in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
Eighteen-year-old Natalie wore the most elaborate and extravagant wardrobe and makeup as royal leader Padmé. The makeup does remind me of a geisha but with a regal twist.
What's your favorite Natalie Portman movie look?
