Natalie Portman Brings Her Pregnancy Glow to the New 'Vanity Fair' Cover

Each year, Vanity Fair magazine showcases a lineup of formidable women who are heavy-hitters in the entertainment industry. Capturing our hearts and attention, thanks to their acting prowess on both the big and small screens, these ladies are showstoppers -- and, quite frankly, badasses in the biz. The cover for the 2017 Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio is nothing less than stunning, as every woman featured is a juggernaut in the game. But there's one in particular who stands out to us, basking in the full glow of her blush gown and delightful baby bump.


Natalie Portman looks incredible as the expectant mom proudly stands among fellow actresses Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Lupita Nyong'o, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Dakota Johnson, Ruth Negga, Greta Gerwig, and Janelle Monae.

This is the second year Vanity Fair featured an all-women cover for its annual "Hollywood" issue, and boy girl, are we here for it.

We love the fierceness of this photo Annie Leibovitz, a photographer and titan who needs no introduction, took that showcases the beauty and diversity within Hollywood.

And aside from the posing in some fierce couture gowns, as E! Online notes, there are 12 Academy Award nominations and two wins between these ladies -- including Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, and Ruth Negga, who are all nominated for Best Actress this year -- which is pretty damn awesome. 

Still, our eyes are drawn to Natalie.

Not only did the mom slay on the cover of Vanity Fair (represent for the mamas!), but the 35-year-old Oscar nominee made us take pause with this homage to Demi Moore's iconic and jaw-dropping 1991 Vanity Fair cover that featured her exposed baby bump.

As Jessica Diehl, Vanity Fair fashion and style director, said, "It [this photo] was about capturing Natalie at her most radiant."

There's something about the beauty an expectant mother exudes that's so natural, so beautiful. I've been a fan of Natalie's for some time now, and I think this is the prettiest she's ever looked -- not, of course, including when she was pregnant with her now 5-year-old son, Aleph.

This is such a powerful feature that makes a statement on so many levels. I love seeing all the ladies shine in unison as they're celebrated for their talent throughout various projects.

And I love seeing Natalie looking so strong and spectacular with her beautiful baby bump.

Simply breathtaking.
