Ballet star Benjamin Millepied coming to Art Basel

Easy to see why Natalie Portman fell head over heels with her easy-on-the-eyes Black Swan co-star, Benjamin Millepied. The handsome dancer and choreographer is flying in for Art Basel to mix art and commerce. Why: Millepied — along with his troupe, the Los Angeles Dance Project — was commissioned by Van Cleef & Arpels to produce a three-part performance piece inspired by, you guessed it, jewelry. Gems Part II will make its international debut on Monday for a VIP crowd at the Olympia Theater downtown. It is unknown whether Portman, who has a 3-year-old son, Aleph, with the Frenchman, will attend.
