Drew Barrymore and Natalie Portman had a double date night in NYC yesterday. The actresses both brought their guys along for the New York City Ballet's 2012 Spring Gala. Drew, who wore a white Chanel dress, posed with fiancé Will Kopelman. Natalie, meanwhile, wore Dior to smile for pictures alongside husband Benjamin Millepied. Benjamin, a dancer himself, choreographed a piece for the Spring debut. The Rodarte sisters, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, designed costumes for his ballerinas. It was a reunion of sorts, since Benjamin, Natalie, and the Mulleavys also worked together to costume and choreograph Black Swan. Gilles Mendel and Swarovski also provided outfits for other works that are currently being staged by the Ballet.
Natalie Portman posed for photos outside of the Audrey Hepburn Children's House in New Jersey this afternoon. She was joined by Audrey's son Sean Ferrer for the event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the location's opening. Natalie serves as an honorary godmother and an advisory board member for the charity, which helps abused and neglected children.
Natalie's been stepping out when she's not busy with her son, Aleph. Last month, she traveled to Washington DC to speak at the Holocaust Memorial Museum's Elie Wiesel National Tribute Dinner and announced her involvement as an ambassador with Free the Children in Paris.
Natalie Portman took the stage last night to speak during the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's 2012 Elie Wiesel National Tribute Dinner. The actress traveled to Washington DC to attend the event, held at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center. The second annual Elie Wiesel honor went to activist Aung San Suu Kyi. Natalie made remarks about her work, and other short speeches were given by Holocaust survivor Gerda Klein, as well as White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew. The tribute came ahead of today's Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is being marked in DC with a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda and a speech from Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner.
The trip to DC is Natalie's latest adventure this week. She also linked up with Jane Goodall for a movie screening a few days ago. Natalie watched Chimpanzee in NYC, where other stars like Dave Matthews, Darren Aronofsky, Naomi Watts, and Liev Schreiber met up with legendary anthropologist Jane.
The duo, who became engaged in 2010, sported wedding bands at the Oscars on Sunday, leading to rumors that they had already tied the knot. The news was just confirmed by UsWeekly after a jeweler verified that he designed their new recycled platinum rings. Natalie and Benjamin welcomed their first child, Aleph, in June and have split their time between NYC and LA since. Congrats to the happy couple!
