Natalie leads the fashionistas checking out the trends in Paris

4 OCTOBER 2008
Newly single Natalie Portman was the guest of honour this week as she joined the celebs keeping an eye on next year's designs at Paris Fashion Week.

Weeks after splitting from her folk rocker beau Devendra Banhart, the Jerusalem-born beauty jetted over the Pond for a front-row seat at Giambattista Valli's impressive show. Showcasing romantic, feminine styles, the designs embraced the hourglass figure of the 1950s, with fit'n' flare dresses and high stilettos.

Highlight of the show, which also saw stylish English rose Emma Watson in the audience, was an ivory tulle wedding dress, overflowing with sculptured blooms, which brought a huge round of applause from the delighted crowd.

Over at Valentino, Vicky Cristina Barcelona star Rebecca Hall settled down for what is speculated to be designer Alessandra Facchinetti's last showing for the iconic label.

Despite the reports, the Italian sent a spectacular collection down the catwalk, with models covered in jewels both on their bodies and their clothes. Opulence flowed from the soft, flowing outfits, putting aside any thought of credit crunch. And of course, the Valentino red was very much on show.
