I've been in love with Natalie Portman's style for years now. She always has that I-don't-really-care-but-I-just-happen-to-have-nailed-it look going on.
And when you're lucky enough to have her flawless complexion, you could wear a spiked mullet and still look amazing.
You could even go bald. (Oh wait, she has.)
The look that Natalie went for at the Gotham Independent Film Awards wasn't too polished or refined, and while it's tousled, it's not sloppy. A casual elegant up 'do if you will.

- For sleekness with a little bit of texture and hold, apply a shine-enhancing gel like Paul Mitchell Soft Sculpting Spray Gel ($18.95) to wet hair.
- Next, blow-dry the hair with a round brush to give the hair body and a smooth finish, focusing on creating a slight curl at the ends.
- After parting the hair to the side in the front, gather the hair into a side ponytail in the back. Be sure to leave out a small section of hair on the side you'll be placing the ponytail. Take pieces from this section you've left, using them to form loops and soft twists, securing with bobby pins, to form a slightly tousled look surrounding the ponytail.
- With a curling iron, curl sections within the ponytail to create more volume. Lightly tease and loosen up the style with a comb.
