Last night, the Black Swan star (and February cover girl!) wore a halter-style Vena Cava sheath to the premiere of her latest film, No Strings Attached, and she recently wore a Vionnet dress with studded collar and cuffs to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala and a Jason Wu silk chiffon tiered dress at the People’s Choice Awards. As Portman’s pregnancy progresses—and she gears up to walk the Golden Globes red carpet this Sunday—she has plenty of well-dressed celebrity moms to take style cues from. Check out the best dressed pregnant celebrities in the gallery. Tell us: What are your favorite maternity looks?

That is the perfect length to frame her face and still allow us to do updos if we want.” Campora first cut the star’s hair over the weekend, but in preparation for her appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show to promote Little Fockers yesterday, he decided to take it just a touch shorter. “Jessica trusts me, so she let me do it,” the Frederic Fekkai stylist said. “This is a new direction for her and she’s incredibly pleased with the cut.” (Indeed! Alba posted a picture on her Twitter yesterday afternoon with the message: “New haircut tweeples -thx @renatocampora.”) What do you think of the star’s swingy bob? Tell us in the comments below.
