Flashback Friday: Natalie PortmanPosted: June 18, 2010
In honour of Toy Story 3 and Jonah Hex both opening today, I bring you a doll/prostitute:
I don’t mean you, Natalie, I mean your character Evey in V for Vendetta. When she was masquerading as a doll-like-child-like-prostitute. Remember?
That’s it. I find this outfit rather adorable if, you know, creepy in context. It’d be fine on an ice dancer, right? Or an actual doll? Maybe? Maybe not. But all the costumes in V for Vendetta help sell the tone of the movie. Well done.
Here’s Natalie today (today meaning June 10th at the AFI Life Achievement Award honoring Mike Nichols):

Now, this could look, and sorta does look, like a valance gone askance — but it’s so much better. And she’d fit right in on Themyscira.
Until anything pops up for Thor —
The shirt says it all.
