Though lots of people probably dream about owning Natalie Portman's red polka dot Dior gown she wore to this year's Oscars, the vintage dress is now officially off the market.
The 1954 gown was just purchased by an unknown British couture collector, who snapped up the piece when couture dealer Rare Vintage (which loaned Natalie the dress) sold it from its website.
And for those of you wondering about Natalie's size, the strapless gown with the controversial bust (many fashion critics thought it was ill-fitting, though the dress did take the #6 spot on Vogue's best dressed list) is a size 4 and according to her stylist Kate Young, "needed zero alterations."
But what do you think? Is this vintage find worth every penny?
