Three weeks after her appearance at the Telluride festival, Natalie attended the EMA awards ceremony this afternoon in Santa Monica, where she was received the EMA Ongoing Commitment Award. Michael Bloomberg, Russell Simmons and John Paul DeJoria were other of the honored. Zimbio and Daily Mail have the first “green” carpet and Ceremony photos:
I’m not sure if it is because of Eating Animals, or some other reason, but I’ve noticed a lot of messages on our social media channels along the lines of “How can Natalie talk about how we should treat animals when Dior tests its products on them.”
I don’t have an answer to that but I thought it would be a good idea to summarize the situation. So…
Does Dior test on animals?
It wouldn’t be the first time that advocacy groups would be wrong (see: GMOs) but as far as I can tell, the answer to the question is “yes”, with an important caveat – Dior doesn’t test or work with companies that test unless required to do so by law. China requires testing by law. Dior sells in China. So, for that market, their products are tested.
What does this say about Dior?
It means they’re another company that, like Apple, that even though they do a lot of good they are also willing to compromise in order to access a massive market.
Although we were able to see the new Rouge Dior Liquid ad a few weeks ago, today the new promotional video has officially launched. Here we have it, along with another short video discussion between Natalie and makeup artist Peter Philips:
Xavier Dolan has published in his Twitter account the last three character posters of his latest film The Death and Life of John. F. Donovan… and the last one seems to be the final teaser poster (with the main character played by Kit Harington):
Seeing it, everything seems to indicate that the movie will be released next year…
After the jump are the other two posters, with Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates:
After an intense weekend in Telluride, Natalie has returned to Los Angeles, where she has been seen shopping with her daughter Amalia. Brazilian website Quem has a couple of photos, in which you can clearly see the face of the baby, and Daily Mail has a few more, this time with Amalia’s face blurred:
Vanity Fair has a few exclusive portraits taken at the Telluride Festival that ended yesterday.
Artists such as Angelina Jolie, Emma Stone, Gary Oldman and Barry Jenkins have been portrayed in the photoshoot, which also features Natalie, director Christopher Quinn, writer Jonathan Safran Foer and activist Alice Waters. Here it is:
The Telluride Festival is much more casual than other film festivals, so it’s hard to find official photos. In fact, the only pictures that have been distributed by agencies so far are the first of this post, in which we can see Natalie alongside Angelina Jolie and Emma Stone, two of the protagonists of the festival. After the jump there is also a small compilation of instagram photos. Enjoy…
