Natalie Portman, actress, activist, and Harvard graduate, is about to add the most important credential to her resume: Mommy. The 29 year old Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee for her recent film Black Swan, confirmed yesterday that she is engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied and expecting her first child!
The baby is due in 2011, which gives Portman plenty of time to pull together the nursery. And, if her nursery style is anything like her fashion sense, we’re confident the baby’s room in her Soho apartment will incorporate modern and traditional elements. She certainly won’t shy away from color or prints, as a recent Us Weekly magazine spread featured Portman wearing frocks in bright yellow, ruby red, and pink lace by celebrated designers Jason Wu, Valentino, Rodarte, Dior, and Lanvin for H&M. The Jerusalem born actress has also been known to favor Zac Posen, Isaac Mizrahi, Helmut Lang, Miu Miu, Prada, Calvin Klein and Abercrombie & Fitch.
And when it comes to nursery furnishing, Bonavita’s Metro Lifestyle® Collection is the perfect selection for Natalie! The Metro Collection answers the age-old question of city living versus the urban life. With a sophisticated look and feel, Metro is a study in both modern and traditional—providing the best of both worlds.
Stylish and cosmopolitan, the collection includes the Lifestyle Crib™, an armoire, a nightstand, a 5 drawer dresser, a combo, a mirror, a double dresser, and a hutch for additional storage space on the combo. Depending on Portman’s personal taste, she can choose from Classic Cherry, Classic White, Licorice or Chocolate finish, perfect for a woman who has multiple homes – and multiple nurseries – to furnish!
