With her hair swept back and dramatic eye make up, Natalie was the picture of class as she ruled the red carpet.

The 35-year-old wore a monochrome lace gown with intricate cut-outs from Valentino, and paired it with simple jewellery.

The glamorous outfit was fitting for the movie, in which Natalie plays First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

The UK release date has not been announced.
