Not many an A-list star (Kirtsen Dunst aside) dares to step out in a dramatic Rodarte dress, but Natalie Portman threw caution to the wind at last night’s premiere of Black Swan at the Venice Film Festival.

In an intricately-designed red Rodarte gown featuring the label’s signature creative cut-outs and shredded tuelle layers, the actress accessorised with a nude quilted clutch and sleek gold sandals to complete her cool-classic look.

And, er, not that Natalie Portman ever looks naff, but we think she looks particularly fetching in this floor-sweeping number – and we applaud her for going against the grain and supporting a young label, too (though it might have something to do with the Mulleavy sisters’ contribution to the film’s ballet costumes).

What do you think of her sartorial choice?
