You can add Natalie Portman to the growing list of celebrities who are budget conscious when it comes to footwear.

While attending the 2011 Directors Guild Awards, Portman was applauded for her stunning black Michael Kors halter dress, accessorized with heavy gold Byzantine style jewelry by Cartier and finished off with a Roger Vivier clutch purse. To add to the ensemble, Portman wore gorgeous open toe black satin stiletto pumps made by mainstream retail designer Aldo. The style, “Labrie,” retails for under $100.

Fashion savvy Portman is shopping savvy as well. At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2010, Portman showed up in another pair of Aldo satin evening shoes, the open-toed “Segura” pump in black, paired with a dark grey strapless evening dress with a tiered ruffle retro skirt.

Portman, like many another actress, apparently chooses a shoe style she likes and buys several pairs, because the year before, at the 2009 premiere of the film “Brothers,” the actress wore a pair of violet/purple “Segura” model open-toed pumps that evening, paired with a strapless, deep purple mini dress with a ruffled neckline and a bunched-up hem. The eye-catching effect of the deep purple with the violet-colored Aldos was one of sheer glamour.

While making her own fashion statement, Natalie Portman also makes an important fashion point: it’s not necessary to break the bank in order to achieve a fabulous runway look. The Aldo “Segura” shoes retail for only $36 a pair. The three pairs of shoes she wore for these three separate red carpet events all retail for well under $200.
