Natalie Portman and
ballerina ballerino danseur hubby Benjamin Millepied stepped out to the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala last night looking spectacularly gorgeous, thereby further reinforcing my long-enduring belief that Natalie is one of the most ethereal and beautiful creatures on this planet (and is, in fact, quite possibly not of this earth at all). Her tiered Dior gown isn’t something I would normally go for, but it looks stunning on her, and my God, that makeup! That face! Perfection. She gets me every time.
Congratulations are in order for “America’s Next Top Model: All Stars” contestant Angelea Preston!
“I’m very excited about things that have been happening in my life recently, like with my marriage and my baby and my career,” Preston, 25, tells Us Weekly about her baby boy on-the-way. “I feel very blessed.”
While enjoying some time at home in Buffalo, New York “around Christmastime,” Preston discovered she was pregnant with boyfriend Eric Brown’s baby. “Eric and I have dated for about two years,” she says. “Eric was the only person that I did tell right away. . . but everyone else I kept in the dark for a while about it.”

Kate Middleton isn’t exactly my fashion hero, given her somewhat mundane personal style selections (don’t hit me!), but I must confess that even I, a jaded fashion freak, am occasionally charmed by some of her more impressive choices. My favorite thus far of her sartorial standouts has been the Grecian-style lavender Alexander McQueen gown she wore in July to the Hollywood BAFTA dinner, but I’ll admit I’m equally dazzled by this week’s stunning floor-length split-to-the-thigh Roland Mouret. I know she’s married to the prince and all (I mean, duh), but Kate is a young, fresh-faced woman who shouldn’t feel confined to matronly wear. In particular, I like to see some glamour from her. This gown is the perfect synthesis of proper (the length, the long sleeves, the high neckline) and punchy (the off-center zipper in the back, the daring exposure of leg, and especially those shimmering Jimmy Choos). To this I say, Kate may in fact be wholly worthy of her iconic reputation. [photos via People Style Watch]
