More Moscow

 
We have some more Natalie photos from her Moscow trip and I’m pleased to report that the quality of these images is much better than what we’ve seen up till now.

First up is a visit to a hair salon.

Tidbits

 
So much Natalie news bouncing around right now and next week, with the new commercial and Berlinale, is going to be like the good old days. Here are a batch of smaller news items to warm us up.

– Let’s begin with the actually rather big news that the Natalie produced documentary, The Seventh Fire, will also be making it’s debut at Berlinale. You might remember our mentioning of the project back in October, but now the full has a full synopsis and will be introduced by Natalie’s Knight Of Cups director, Terrence Malick. I have to say, the film sounds really interesting and I’d want to check it out even without Natalie’s involvement.

– Earlier in the week we talked about a story that I’m just going to go ahead and call ‘Thighgate’. In it we saw how Natalie’s legs were covered up in an alternate version of the new Dior ad. Well, breathe a sigh of relief because the thighs are free!

– A few more odds and ends from Natalie’s Moscow visit in the form of Instagram blurriness, behind the back dinners, and if you click the thumb below we have an album of Natalie heading to dinner.

Rouge Dior Brilliant

 
EdenLiao found some “new” photos from the latest campaign for Rouge Dior—Rouge Dior Brilliant. Unfortunately, it looks like the photos aren’t exactly “new,” but more recycled outtakes from Natalie’s 2013 Rouge Dior campaign with some Photoshopped lip gloss sloppily slapped on (yikes).

Natalie In Moscow

 
Natalie and Benjamin were in Moscow this week and the result are two small albums. Someone needs to have a word to Russia about their cameras because the quality of the photos are sub-par to say the least.

Visiting the Dr. Zhivago restaurant on Wednesday.

And watching a rehearsal of Hamlet at the Bolshoi Theatre from earlier in the day.

French Elle Scans

 
Natalie’s appearance in the new French Elle has arrived thanks to Belerofonte. While not the most diverse shoot she’s ever done, each image is really stunning in its own right. If one of our French speaking visitors could alert us to any interesting quotes from the interview, that would be great.

Next week is going to be an epic one for us Natalie fans, but until then we have a lot of smaller news items. They aren’t epic but they are tidbits.

– Another preview has arrived for next week’s Dior commercial. No Natalie in sight, but I gather that’s why everyone is shocked.

– The NY Times has covered Natalie’s appearance at the Dior fashion show and they managed to grab a few direct quotes, although none are particularly eye-opening.

– Finally, here is a video of the Haute Couture show, which includes several shots of Natalie and Benjamin in the front row. Maybe Natalie was mentally picking out an outfit for the Knight Of Cups premiere. If Rachel was here she’d say “hopefully not”.

Thanks to Lightscamerareaction and Belerofonte.

New Dior

 
A few days ago we saw a preview of the new Dior ad featuring Natalie and now we have the full version. Except…if you look closely at the old photo you’ll notice that they’ve covered up Natalie’s legs. I’m sure we’ll still see the naked knee version as they likely have different versions for different markets.

It has been a long wait but we’re almost there. Natalie’s Terrence Malick film will premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival on February 8th. Will Natalie be in attendance? This tweet seems to suggest she will.

The film’s Berlinale page has a full synopsis of the plot.

“Rick is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, functional architecture with the ageless beauty of nature. Rick’s internal monologue coalesces with the voices of the women who cross his path, women who represent different principles in life: while one lives in the real world, the other embodies beauty and sensuality. Which path will Rick choose? In the city of angels and the desert that surrounds it, will he find his own way?”

Thanks to Belerofonte and Lightscamerareaction.

We are well overdue for a new poll and today I want to get your opinions on the DiorSkin Nude Air print ad.

As for the Jane Got A Gun photo poll, the results were very interesting. I fell into the winning option, which was that the photos didn’t really change my feelings about the film. But right behind were a group of Natalie fans who are now feeling a lot more positive about the films prospects. So good job marketing department. Now let’s have a trailer.

Gallery Updates

 
We’ve updated the gallery with some more new and HQ photos of Natalie and Benjamin looking precious at the Christian Dior show during Paris Fashion Week earlier today. You can also spot them in the background sitting front row during the show over at theFashionSpot.

Thanks to Kitten, edenLiao, Belerofonte, and Iktriad for the finds.

The Daily Mail has a video of Natalie and Benjamin posing for photos earlier in the day. It really must take some effort to remaining smiling and somewhat natural through all that commotion. Apologies, their embedded video player is HORRIFIC.

Thanks to Belerofonte.

Natalie and Benjamin are currently attending the Dior Haute Couture Fashion Show in Paris and HOLY SMOKES is she looking great. I’ve set up a very early album but be sure to check back later for further additions.

We couldn’t do a best magazine photo category this year due to the dearth of options. However, there were just about enough advertising snaps to warrant a strong new category.

Save The Date

 
A teaser for the upcoming Dior commercial suggests that the February 3rd air date, that we reported this week, is actually going to be February 4th. The runaway bride theme didn’t instil me with much hope, but this teaser is a bit more reassuring.

Thanks to Kitten and Nina.

Pink Flower Tsunami

 
The Dior news keeps coming. If this keeps up, in a few weeks 2015 could already be a better year for Natalie fans than the entirety of 2014.

Let us begin with the news that the next Dior commercial film will be arriving on February 3rd. The good news is that it is directed by Anton Corbijn (Control, A Most Wanted Man), but the bad news is that the runaway bride theme looks awful. We’ll find out soon enough.

Next up is another preview, courtesy of Melinda Triana.

Finally, Dior have posted an invitation to a special Miss Dior event on February 5th. I better go check my postbox.

Thanks to Kitten, Eden, and Belerofonte.

Dior Nude Air Commercial

 
Thanks to Eden Liao once again, you can now feast your eyes on the commercial spot. It’s more focused on “air” than it is “nude”, but it’s clean and has a nice energy thanks to the song. What do you think?

Dior Nude Air

 
A breath of fresh Dior Nude Air has arrived and I don’t care if they are literally just selling air. I’ll take a dozen, thanks.

In addition here is a scan of the actual ad and product.

A big thanks to Eden Liao.
