Upcoming Dior

Ah, blessed weekend. I’m going to use it to try and get on top of all the latest Natalie news. Thankfully I did hear from Rachel and she is very much alive, but might not be able to help on the site for a few more weeks.

So, the image albums are not going to have her usual polish, but something is better than nothing, right? Here is Natalie twirling around in Paris from earlier in the week for an upcoming Dior ad.

Argh, struggling to keep up with Rachel AWOL and work stacking up, so let’s do a post that merges a bunch of items that could very well have made up their own posts.

– First up, Natalie was snapped filming a new Dior video in Paris on Tuesday. Based on this photo alone, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this will be the best commercial ever made.

– From Paris Natalie will of course be heading to TIFF in Toronto and it sounds like as soon as TIFF is over she will be straight back to Paris to film Planetarium (‘Le Soeurs Barlow’) for Rebecca Zlotowski. According to the casting call, the film will shoot from mid-September through to mid-November.

– Finally, moon-walking back to the TIFF mention where Natalie will be premiering A Tale of Love and Darkness, a new review for the film has arrived from The Jerusalem Post and it’s incredibly positive. They call the film “triumphant” and claim that Natalie gives her best ever performance.

Thanks to Amo, Belerofonte and Nina.

Watch Natalie Visit Dior

We have a great weekend surprise thanks to Eden_Liao. It is a video of Natalie picking out the scents that go into her Miss Dior perfume. Of most interest is that Natalie is speaking French throughout…perhaps French fans can update us in the comments as to how her pronunciation and fluency is progressing.

Struggling with the video autoplay so I am putting it after the jump. Or click the thumb below to go to the site and view it there.

New Shoot?

Just when I thought we were never going to see an edgier Natalie editorial after an abundance of beautiful but boring Dior spreads, 2b management Photographer’s Agency posted this Instagram snap of Natalie posing with veteran fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Could a new photo shoot be coming soon?

Thanks to anqxxx for the find.

Daily Telegraph

The Australian version of The Daily Telegraph caught up with Natalie during her recent visit to Beijing for the Dior exhibition. It sounds like Natalie was in a really good mood because the interviewer came away feeling like she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Contrast that to the recent THR interview and it becomes clear that trying to pin Natalie down under one label is a fool’s errand.

“You need huge levels of perseverance and focus to complete your initial vision and keep it going ’til the end,” she says.

“Now I get how hard the director works on intensive planning long before we actors show up – and of course afterwards.

“It’s amazing how small the actual filming part of it is!”

The full interview, including her appreciation of Australians and Emma Watson, is here. Thanks to Belerofonte.

Dior Beijing Videos

We have a couple videos from the recent Dior exhibition in Beijing, which Natalie attended as Miss Dior. The first video is a focused interview with Natalie, while the second has more footage from the event itself, with a couple Natalie sightings thrown in for good measure.

Thanks to Aurore and Belerofonte.

Natalie was in attendance at the opening of a Miss Dior exhibition in Beijing earlier today, marking her first public appearance in over a month. We’ve added a handful of photos of Natalie at the event to the gallery, with hopefully more to come.

Rouge Moves

Thanks to Cherryvanilla we have a new (or is it?) commercial for Rouge Dior. The stills shoot may have sucked but this is cute enough, don’t you think?

LightsCameraReaction reminded me that these notated snapshots from behind-the-scenes of Natalie’s Miss Dior commercial shoot were forgotten in the shuffle (sorry!). Hit the preview to view four more in the gallery.

Thanks to edenLiao.

Red Magazine Scans

Thanks to Amo, we now have scans of Natalie’s full interview from the April 2015 issue of Red Magazine. Disappointingly, it looks like most of the new material was already posted online last week.

Dior Stunner

One can get a bit cynical about advertising photos, particularly when we’ve now see Natalie and that freaking pink dress a million times over the last few years. But this photo just kicks a hole in that cynicism. It becomes meaningless in the face of sheer beauty. Bravo!

More Dior

Belerofonte found this new alternate Miss Dior print ad that was lost in the Berlinale shuffle. Honestly, I think I like it more than the original.

Taking a break from Berlinale, these two new shots by Tim Walker from Natalie’s latest Miss Dior campaign are not to be missed.
