The lovey-dovey couple looked stunning as they made their way down the red carpet, hand-in-hand. Portman was dressed in head-to-toe Dior and sported Anna Hu jewels, while Millepied wore a suit by Saint Laurent. (P.S. It looks like Portman could be hiding a baby bump under that gown, no?)

Question: What do you get when you combine "Thriller, " dubstep, and the zombie apocalypse? Answer: Benjamin Millepied's music video directorial debut.
The dance choreographer made famous by "Black Swan" -- and, let's be honest, by knocking up Natalie Portman -- directed a video for "Demons" by Zeds Dead, as part of a collaboration between Belvedere vodka and Noisey. The Music Video Project is pairing up "non-traditional" music video directors and artists willing to have a vodka ad slapped on the end of their video.
"The collaborative process here is interesting because you pick a song that you like, you have ideas, and then you put them on paper," says Millepied. "You also have a band who has a specific image, and then you add the film coloring and special effects. I think everybody brought something special to the video."
The special concept behind the video seems to be a zombie dance-off, »
Natalie Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, stopped for lunch together in La today.
