Natalie hasn’t done a red carpet since the Oscars last February, and tonight at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards she shined in a beautiful custom Lanvin dress that she accessorized with Harry Winston jewels. Last year Nat won the Best Actress award for her role in “Black Swan”, this year she presented the Best Actor award to winner George Clooney for The Descendants. It’s great to see Nat on the red carpet again! Check out first photos from the event in our gallery and watch a short red carpet interview feat. Rob Lowe and Natalie!

New York Daily News is reporting that PETA has developed a series of postage stamps to help raise awareness about animal abuse. The stamps will showcase the faces of 20 of the most famous vegetarians in history. The stamps will be available on PETA’s website through December and possibly into January, just in time for us to send out those holiday cards. The collection will include the faces of celebrities such as Russell Simmons, Woody Harrelson, Natalie Portman, Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett, Bryan Adams, Leona Lewis, Paul McCartney, Pamela Anderson, Bob Barker, Stevo-O, and Ellen DeGeneres.
Natalie’s first post-baby project: playing Fran Kubelik, the Shirley MacClaine role, in The Apartment for Jason Reitman’s staged reading at LACMA. So far, the rest of the cast includes JK Simmons as Sheldrake, Ken Jeong as Dobisch, Nick Kroll as Kirkeby, Mindy Kaling as Miss Olsen, Collette Wolfe as Sylvia, and Jake Johnson as Dr. Dryfeuss.
