Natalie Portman's Christian Dior Dress Scares Us (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Natalie Portman was intimidating when she went dark for her Oscar-winning role in "Black Swan" but her latest outfit is equally as terrifying.

The mom wore a strapless colour-blocked Christian Dior dress at the annual New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala on Thursday, which featured textured fabric that poked out of the gown as if they were mini spikes. Ouch!

We love the "Thor" star but we have to admit that we would be afraid to stand close to the 32-year-old actress for fear of getting hurt by her column frock.

The Miss Dior spokesperson completed her ensemble with a satin black clutch (the perfect accessory for fall 2013), Dior diamond drop earrings, a leather watch and smokey eyes. Gorgeous!

Portman joined fellow style icons Sarah Jessica Parker, who wore a pink-and-white satin ballgown, and model Doutzen Kroes, who sported a sexy sheer suit.

What do you think of Natalie's dress?

Once a stunner, always a stunner:
