Natalie Portman arrived on the red carpet for the 2024 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, wearing a Dior Haute Couture evening dress in black tulle embroidered with an impressionist landscape of micro-flowers and vermicelli.
“My dress was hand-beaded and took hundreds of hours of work, so I’m really lucky to get to wear this, it’s like a garden on a dress,” Portman said to WWD describing her Dior Haute Couture look.
The actress has long advocated for veganism and sustainability and over the years has brought up the topic during her red carpet interviews.
“It’s really exciting to see more companies putting forward sustainable and vegan materials,” Portman said to WWD. “I actually invest in a company called MycoWorks that produces mushroom leather, which a lot of luxury brands are now using.”
In 2023, MycoWorks revealed opened its first full-fledged factory. Prior to that, in 2022, the company received $125 million in Series C funding to grow its business.
Portman has been a brand ambassador for Dior since 2011, with the release of Miss Dior Chérie. Since then, she’s starred in various campaigns for the brand and regularly wears Dior gowns and dresses for red carpet events.
Portman was nominated at this year’s ceremony for Best Actress Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for her role in May December, opposite Julianne Moore. The award ultimately went to Emma Stone for “Poor Things.” Portman also presented the award for Best Animated Feature alongside fellow actress Florence Pugh. The award went to “The Boy and the Heron.”
