Natalie Portman makes pregnancy look easy.

On Wednesday, the Oscar-winning actress and star of the upcoming biopic Jackie stepped out to attend the 30th Israel Film Festival Anniversary Gala Awards in Beverly Hills, California, where she received the 2016 IFF Achievement In Film Award.

The mama-to-be looked stunning in a floor-length white dress, accented by a striped pattern and featuring long, flared sleeves. She wore her brown hair swept back over her shoulders and minimal makeup with a pretty pink lip, finishing the look with silver hoop earrings.

Portman is gearing up to welcome her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied. The couple share 5-year-old son Aleph.

The actress and Harvard grad debuted her baby bump in September at the Venice Film Festival, while promoting her French movie Planetarium. And on Sunday, she made an appearance at the Hollywood Film Awards, donned in a black bump-hugging ensemble and wearing her hair in classic soft curls as she spoke to PEOPLE.

“I’m feeling great,” said the 35-year-old veteran actress, who took home the best actress award for her portrayal of Jackie Kennedy. “It’s really, of course, a big honor every time that you are recognized for your work, and it’s really exciting, always, just to be in a room with so many artists that you admire.”

Earlier this year, Portman penned a piece for The New York Times’ T Magazine, in which she explained how she has adjusted to life as a mother.

“Time goes exponentially fast as a parent. I hate saying it, cause ugh, we hated it so much when people said it to us: Pay attention and hold them close because before you know it, they’re moving out of the house,” she wrote. “They always said it, and now we say it, and it’s awful, and we’re old. But it’s also true.”

Jackie premieres Dec. 2 in theaters.
