edenLiao found another Instagram snapshot of Natalie on the set of a new Miss Dior campaign photo shoot. Looks like more of the same…
Natalie has attended a press conference in Shanghai for the International Film Festival. I’m not exactly sure what she’s there to talk about and who she is representing and maybe Natalie is thinking the same thing as this attendee thinks it was the most awkward interview he’s ever seen and that it felt like Natalie didn’t want to be there. No real surprise, Natalie is quite uncomfortable in these situations at the best of times.
On the plus side, she was looking really elegant. Rachel will be back later with a more comprehensive update.
Thanks to Belerofonte and Kitten.
We were well overdue for a new poll and here it is, a simple pulse check about Natalie’s Miss Dior exhibition appearance. If the comments section was any indication, there are quite variable opinions out there.
As for the last poll, if there was any growing tiredness for Natalie’s Miss Dior ads, it didn’t really reflect in the results.
It’s going to be a busy weekend and today is no exception with a bunch of items related to Natalie’s appearance at the Dior exhibit in China.
Starting with a video of Natalie being interviewed about Dior and the exhibition.
Then we have another photo from the evening, which is one of the best from the event, imo (we’ll be doing a poll on the look this weekend).
And finally, it looks like there is another Miss Dior event for Vogue on the way in Shanghai.
Thanks to Kitten and Belerofonte.
Natalie made her first public appearance in months as she attended the Miss Dior exhibition in China. Lighting was a bit harsh but still cool to see her smiling for the cameras again. Rachel will set up our gallery a little later but in the meantime you can hit the thumbnail to see more at Just Jared. Thanks to Belerofonte and SIFE.
UPDATE – More at the gallery, thanks to Kitten.
A nice selection of mini news items for you guys to dig into today.
- Natalie has received a Teen Choice nomination
- And finally, a little mention that A Tale Of Love And Darkness has landed distribution in Italy via Massimo Ferrero. Thanks to Kitten and Belerofonte.

Sooo damn quiet in Natalie land right now. At least Portmania is almost upon us.
- Let’s start with a great find by Belerofonte – Natalie partaking in a fan selfie at the Paris premiere of Thor: The Dark World.
- Kitten found another shot from day 1 of filming the new Miss Dior campaign. She thinks it may be a wedding theme – agree?
- And finally, Lee sent me a blogger link for an “article” titled ‘Celebs who have played with themselves on onscreen’. In this case they don’t mean Candy Crush, rather Natalie’s private (or so she thought) moment from Black Swan. As I clicked the link thinking “this should be creepy” I was actually pissed off. It’s just a slideshow of celebs from red carpet appearances with the celeb’s name and the film in which they are referencing…and that’s it. No commentary at all. I kinda like lists and even though a little smutty, it could have been interesting to read about the different kinds of going solo moments on film.
But the slideshow is so lame and pointless that I’m not even going to bother with the link.
It’s time for a new poll and with not much else going on, the topic was an easy one – Natalie shooting a new Dior campaign in France. Are we still as excited as ever for her Dior collaborations? Let’s find out…
As for the least likely to work with poll, it was a close run between the masters of the green screen – George Lucas and Michael Bay. In the end Bay squeaked home for the “victory”.
We’ve updated the gallery with a new-old behind-the-scenes photo of Natalie and makeup artist Eileen Kastner Delago on the set of Dior’s 2013 Miss Dior photo campaign and commercial. Thanks to Kitten for the find.
It’s our 14th birthday. Even though the site was around prior to that, it was laying dormant when myself, Sanjiro and a few old time Natalie fans convinced Audio to let us relaunch it. Seems like a lifetime ago now. I won’t belabour the point but just want to thank Kris and Rachel for putting so much work into the site over the years, as well as the regular contributors who now more than ever (as finding time to work on the site gets harder and harder) help keep the site bringing the Natalie news to her fans.
It’s also Valentines Day, so wishes go out to all the lovers out there. And especially those who are looking for that special someone (hopefully not holding out for Natalie, that ship might have sailed).
As a birthday gift for the fans and as a pretty decent Valentines Day gift, here is the video for Blooming Bouquet. Really gorgeous I’m sure you’ll agree…although I can definitely go the rest of my life without hearing that song again.
I think it was this time last year when the Dior news starting pouring in, ushering aside the Natalie news drought. I don’t think we’re going to get as much as we did last year but it’s great to see a new Natalie ad, for Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, that is actually a really gorgeous image to boot. The Miss Dior aesthetic has been very feminine and lush, but this image adds just a slight edge and the combination is great.
Thanks to Kitten for the find.
There’s also a one sheet version.
Since news is slim pickings right now, I have some DiorSkin Nude content but instead of one glorious update, I’m going to drag it out for 3 updates over the course of the weekend
This does have the benefit of letting each item have it’s moment in the spotlight and, I think you’ll agree, the outtake photo below, which was never used commercially, is more than worthy of all the spotlights in the world. Thanks to Kitten.
Kitten found five new B&W photos of Natalie snapped at the Esprit Dior, Miss Dior exhibition opening night at the Galerie Courbe at the Grand Palais in Paris earlier this month. Click the preview pic to view them in the gallery.
We have some more (and much higher quality) photos of Natalie attending the Esprit Dior, Miss Dior exhibition opening at the Grand Palais yesterday evening in Paris. We also have some candid photos of Natalie and Benjamin on their way to the event. Thanks to Kitten and Hannah!
