2011 Oscars: Natalie Portman in Rodarte (Not Dior, hmm...)

Natalie Portman wore a pretty purple gown by Rodarte who also designed costumes for "Black Swan." There was some controversy being discussed on Twitter about Natalie not wearing Dior because of John Galliano's recent alleged anti-Semitic remarks as Natalie is of Israeli heritage (Galliano is refuting the claims that he made anti-Semitic remarks, but *UPDATE* Now there's 'alleged' VIDEO of the rant). But there was also controversy between Rodarte and the design team on the set of the movie Black Swan, so the fact that she's wearing Rodarte could be making some sort of statement too if you're reading between the lines really hard. Who knows. Anyhoo, I like to keep it light here on Hip Candy so I thought the dress draped nicely on her and I really liked the color.
