Natalie Portman's Oscars dress, a vintage polka dot 1954 Christian Dior strapless number, may have been stunning but it couldn't outshine a new piece of jewelry the actress was sporting: a wedding band. It's been revealed that Portman and partner Benjamin Millepied (who was also wearing a band) are now married. The news was confirmed by the couple's jeweler Jamie Wolf who said that the bands, "were made with recycled platinum and conflict free diamonds." [US]
