Natalie Portman’s Christian Dior Oscars gown goes under the hammer

Natalie Portman looked stunning at the Oscars this year as she donned a stunning vintage Christian Dior dress. But that dress turned out to be worth way more than just that. The strapless silk organza gown was auctioned off online on for a staggering $50,000. A brand ambassador for Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, the pretty lady wasn’t even planning to wear the dress for the event. It was borrowed from vintage New York dealer, Rare, and went to auction after being returned.

Last year Portman wore a red polka dot printed dress look, from Christian Dior’s spring/summer 1954 collection styled by Kate Young, who knows Rare’s owner, Juliana Cairone well.
