2012 has been a huge year for celebrity couples, as this year has seen many vicious break-ups, but also its fair share of celebrity weddings and engagements. Here are some of the most noteworthy celebrity weddings and engagements of 2012 so far.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 35, surprised fans when they wed in early September. Surprisingly, the couple was able to keep their engagement and subsequent wedding a secret, even from the paparazzi. The two first met when filming the movie Green Lantern in 2011, but they didnt actually start dating until later that year, and only after Reynolds had finalized his divorce with Scarlett Johansen. Lively is most well known for her role on the popular TV show Gossip Girl, while Reynolds has starred in television shows and numerous films, including National Lampoons Van Wilder and Blade Trinity.

Natalie Portman has ditched the glam factor for her wedding and opted for a very simple wedding gown which was neither elegant nor understated.
Often a stunner during red carpet events, Natalie Portman’s wedding look however was a huge letdown. Quite frankly, the wedding dress with the long sheer sleeves and the frumpy silhouette was just unflattering, it simply did not suit this lovely bride.

With the launch of Madonna’s new range of Aldo shoes and the news that perpetually half-dressed R&B singer Rihanna is to design a collection of clothes next spring for River Island, it is worth remembering that not all celebrities who dip their hand into fashion come out on top. Whilst many celebrities have contributed their name and time to designing clothes or shoes for charitable causes, Kim Kardashian’s SchoeDazzle being amongst such programs, more often than not the lines are launched purely for vanity purposes; something that is reflected by the poor commercial return on these projects.

Natalie Portman trained in the art of Ballet for a year before taking on her role in David Aronofsky’s critically lauded film Black Swan and her hard work paid off with Portman taking home her first Academy Award at Sunday nights awards ceremony.
In the movie Portman played troubled ballerina Nina Sayers and during her speech she had this to say:
“I truly, sincerely, wish the prize was to get to work with my fellow nominees. I’m so in awe of all of you.”

Natalie Portman is having a great year, first her movie Black Swan has earned her rave reviews and now PEOPLE has reported that she is engaged to her Black Swan choreographer boyfriend Benjamin Millepied and they are expecting their first child together!
The couple fell in love on the set of the movie in which Natalie Portman has been nominated for a Golden Globe and is expected to receive an Oscar Nod. It looks like Black Swan just had all the stars aligning for Portman both on and off screen.
The baby will be the 29-year old Portman’s first child. Not a bad way to ring in the new year if you ask us.
Congrats to the happy couple!

Not wanting to offend audiences with their PG-rated trailer for the upcoming Natalie Portman movie Your Highness, Universal Studios chose to digitally alter the clothing covering her butt.
Portman’s backside was covered up using computer-generated imagery (CGI) and if you check out the picture (shown above) you’ll quickly realize the big changes they made for the more family friendly version of their trailer.
The red trailer (R-Rated) will still show the regular Portman coverage, while the green labeled (PG-Rated) trailer shows the standard full-cover bikini look.
What is it? It may not be apparent, but Natalie Portman is obsessed with “obscene” hip-hop. Really obscene hip-hop. She says that it makes her want to dance and laugh at the same time. Each to his own, I guess?
The reason? She reportedly could not understand the concept of celibacy.
A million men’s imaginations are now in overdrive.
