Happy birthday, Natalie Portman! The Black Swan star turns 36 years old today, and she has come a long way since her big-screen debut at the age of just 13. To date, the actress has won an Oscar, two Golden Globes, and a SAG Award for her thrilling performances, and we’re wishing we could give Portman a trophy for her memorable red carpet moments as well.

And the young star definitely lived up to our expectations, making a splash in stunning sheer gowns and figure-hugging sheaths.

Fashion houses took notice, with Portman landing a deal as the new face in Dior in 2010. Her Miss Dior campaign ads are nothing short of stunning, from her gorgeous gowns to her perfectly winged eyeliner.
