Who: Natalie Portman.

When: Monday, August 15.

Where: The premiere of her directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, in New York.

What: An ivory silk Dior dress with silver sandals.

Why: Sometimes, simple is better. Portman looks every inch the actress-slash-director in this low-key Dior dress, polished and elegant yet un-showy, and finished off with embellished silver sandals, also by Dior.

Watch the first episode of “The Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice,” a four-part film series by Gia Coppola, here. Produced for Gucci by W magazine.
