After three years, one baby and an Academy Award, Black Swan co-stars Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied tied the knot in Big Sur, Calif., on August 4. And only In Touch has the exclusive details!
In Touch can reveal that Natalie walked down the aisle in a stunningly simple Rodarte gown — a tea-length cocktail number with sheer, full-length sleeves. “Her dress was stunning, not overly showy or revealing,” says an insider who lives in Big Sur. “Very much her own subtle and pretty personal style — she always has a hippie theme, whatever she does.”
The traditional Jewish ceremony, which took place after sundown on Saturday at a private residence on the scenic Californian coastline, was an intimate affair with just 60 of the couple’s family and closest friends in attendance. A select group of celebrity guests included Diane Sawyer and her husband, Mike Nichols (who directed Natalie in Closer), Ivanka Trump, Macaulay Culkin, Rashida Jones and Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
After a vegetarian meal — Natalie has been a strict vegan since 2009, apart from a brief break during her pregnancy with son Aleph, now 14 months — the newlyweds let loose on the dance floor. The DJ spun hip-hop tunes until 2:30 a.m., says the insider. “Natalie looked so happy and was glowing. It was a beautiful day for her and Benjamin to celebrate with those they hold closest.”
