Forget the hair, look at the Raf Simons Dior couture  

While all eyes were on Natalie Portman’s new blonde hairdo when she appeared on Saturday at the opening of her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied's LA Dance Project, let's take a moment to have a look at the dress, shall we?

It’s been over two months since Raf Simon’s debut for Dior couture left onlookers open-mouthed with admiration at Paris Couture Fashion Week in July. Portman is allied to the brand, as the face of Miss Dior Cherie, so presumably didn't have many problems getting hold of the beautiful gown that managed to be both lavishly embellished while retaining the simplicity of shape that is Raf Simons’ calling card
