While there were plenty of A-listers on the red carpet at the 2024 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Sunday, Feb. 25, few caught our attention quite like Natalie Portman.

The Black Swan actress attended in a stunning red ensemble by Balmain. The designer outfit consisted of an open jacket top and mini skirt, both adorned with three-dimensional flowers, a major trend for spring. The ensemble, which was from the designer’s spring-summer 2024 runway show and completely constructed from silicone, was “inspired by Pierre Balmain’s signature flower and his love of all things powerfully feminine,” per the brand.

Portman accessorized with a small gold clutch and strappy red heels, courtesy of stylist Ryan Hastings. For glam, she wore her hair in a slicked-back style and opted for a subtle smokey eye and nude lip combo. The 42-year-old star worked with makeup artist Lisa Storey and hairstylist Bridget Brager for the occasion.

Portman showed off her look on Instagram a few days after the event, where she expressed her gratitude over Sammy Burch winning the Best First Screenplay award for May December, in which she stars alongside Julianne Moore. 

“So thrilled to be celebrating May December’s Best First Screenplay win at the Spirit Awards with Todd Haynes and Samy Burch,” she wrote in her cpation. “@maydecemberfilm would not exist without you!”

Portman, a mom of two and Angel City FC co-owner, also included a few snapshots with celebrity friends in her Instagram post, including comedian-actress Ali Wong and Fleabag star Andrew Scott.
