We first fell in love with Natalie Portman’s body when we watched her show-stopping ballet moves in hit film Black Swan, so we can totally understand why Dior were keen to persuade their muse to de-robe for one of their upcoming campaigns.
The ‘Garden State’ actress was photographed by Mario Sorrenti in a variety of poses for the brand’s new Skin Glowing make-up collection. In one picture the Oscar winner is draped over a chaise lounge staring seductively into the camera (tastefully done, though we might add) and in another close up shot, the actress’s crossed arms are the only things protecting her erm, modesty.
It may not be the first time the beauty has stripped off, last year Nat wore just a black headband to promote the brand's fragrance Miss Dior Cherie, (and we say if you’ve got it flaunt it), but it’s still pretty saucy stuff. Perhaps even enough to stop traffic - remember the unbelievable reaction to ‘Hello Boys’ Wonderbra ad of the nineties on the A4 into London?
Nevertheless, if the brand new prods make us look anywhere as hot as the lovely Natalie, then we reckon that they’re worth getting seriously excited about. As it currently stands, the collection will be on sale from 14 September and will include foundations, lip and nail shades in a nude palette, all promising a more natural, radiant look which we very much like the sound of.
It’s been quite a week for Ms Portman, who got married to Benjamin Millepied in top secret, only last weekend in a romantic, understated ceremony. Despite being Dior’s muse, the bride wore Rodarte and strutted around in flat shoes, in a most cool, casual and understated way despite her A list status. Natalie – We salute you!
