Jessica Alba vs. Natalie Portman: Venice Red Carpet Glamour

Jessica Alba Natalie Portman Venice Film Festival red carpet

During the 67th Venice Film Festival in Italy earlier this week, Jessica Alba wore an edgy black Valentino Couture dress while Natalie Portman donned a stunning red Rodarte gown.

Both women were in Venice promoting their most recent films -- Alba at the premiere of her latest film, Machete, and Portman promoting Black Swan. But whose style takes Italy by storm?


Jessica Alba wore a black strapless Valentino Couture dress with a hi-low hemline that extended into a long train in back. She accessorized with black strappy Ferragamo shoes.

Natalie Portman wore her seemingly favorite Rodarte, this time in a rich red gown with an embellished and draping bodice and a flowing layered skirt with a slit. She accessorized with a cream-colored clutch and gold strappy stilettos.

So who did it best?

When I look at Jessica Alba, I think Damn, get a load of those gorgeous gams! So much so, in fact, I can hardly get past them and onto the rise and fall dress. But I'll try. And now that I'm focusing on the dress, I hate to say this but I think the look may be a little (gasp!) young for the pushing-30 Alba. This might be fun on someone a little more, er, fun. And where's the waist? But dang, those legs! Dress talk aside, she's definitely one hot mama.

My immediate reaction to Natalie Portman's dress was GOR-GEE-OUS! However, after staring for a long time, I decided the bodice isn't fitted at its best and hangs a little loose on the thin actress. However, overall this dress is gorgeous on her, especially as you see other photos of your moving about the red carpet. A real head-turner for sure.

So my vote is for Portman this time.

Do all the bodice-fitters live back in Hollywood. What up?

Which beautiful actress do you think is rockin' the Venice red carpet best?
