Heavily pregnant Natalie Portman looks glamorous as she dresses


She is the epitome of style.

And Natalie Portman put her best maternity fashion foot forward on Thursday night at China's Huading Awards in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old looked gorgeous in a glamorous floor length gown as she proudly displayed her baby bump at the event celebrating global film.

The actress is currently on the campaign trail to promote her new biographical film Jackie.

Portman just nabbed a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Jackie by the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The veteran actress offered one of the classiest responses as she thanked those she worked with.

'I am very grateful for the recognition of my peers with this morning’s SAG nomination,' she pregnant star started.

'I loved making JACKIE so much, in large part due to the incredible actors our great director Pablo Larrain assembled.'

'Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, John Carroll Lynch, Richard Grant, just to name a few, brought such inventiveness and honesty to every moment,' she added.

'Pablo gave us so much freedom and inspiration to play. And that combination allowed us to show Jackie through the many different relationships she had, in many different lights.'

It's the second time that the Huading Awards, created in 2007, have been held in Los Angeles.

The award winners are voted for by Chinese audiences voting online through the Huading website and major third party platforms such as Sina.com, according to Variety.

'Los Angeles is where film culture originated from. So being here helps us to build the authority of the Huading Awards,' said awards founder Wang Haige.

Hilary Swank also showed up for the event with her mom Judy as her date.

She wore a full-length nude strapless gown with her hair up in a stylish chignon.

The Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby Oscar winner added a matching clutch and a dark red pedicure.

On hand, too, was Entourage's Jeremy Piven in a shiny black tuxedo with open-necked black shirt.
