Japanese fans wouldn’t have many opportunities to see Natalie in the flesh, so no surprise that her recent visit sparked the kind of excitement we see in those two cellphone vids from Natalie’s appearance and departure from the Dior building in Ginza. Thanks to Kitten.
Have a brief moment at work to bring you guys the first proper images of Natalie in Japan. This isn’t from today’s press conference, rather a 60th Anniversary event in Japan. Thanks, again, to Kitten. If the dress looks familiar, its the same one she wore to the LA Dance Project benefit a few days ago.
New campaign shots for Rouge Dior have arrived and they have a bit more attitude and sexiness, at least compared to the Miss Dior stuff. Click the thumb to check out the gallery that Rachel set up. I wonder if the last shot isn’t an outtake…because her hair going sideways looks ridiculous. Can’t believe they would use that. Thanks to Belerofonte and Moon-light-world.
It’s horribly edited together but this is still a great find from Toto20, a video showing behind the scenes of the Miss Dior Cherie launch in New York back in 2010. We see Natalie at the launch, at a special dinner and then again in a one on one interview setting. It also has footage from the opening of the Dior boutique, with John Galliano, before he disgraced himself and was fired by Dior. Speaking of which, Nannnina found a Vanity Fair slide show focusing on the most famous red carpet snubs, and Natalie not wearing Dior (as the Galliano controversy was in full swing) to the 2011 Oscars made the list.
But back to the video, there is no embed code so you’ll have to just click the thumb below to get to the video.
I’ve updated the gallery with some tag-free but smallish photos from Natalie’s most recent Christian Dior Parfums editorial for Elle. They come in two flavors: Washed out and over-saturated.
Just in case you haven’t noticed (they’ve been there for a while… oops), I’ve updated the gallery with two new behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Sofia Coppola’s La vie en rose commercial for Miss Dior. Thanks to Eden Liao as always!
I think the Miss Dior landslide of news is almost at an end, however this update MIGHT be the best of all. It’s a 3 minute long behind the scenes video that, personally, I like even more than the full advert. There’s something about seeing those moments being created that is even more interesting and beautiful to me.
Always want to finally mention that the actor opposite Natalie is Nash Edgerton, who not only acts but writes, directs (check out his short film Spider for a great dose of dark comedy) and is even a stuntman. His brother is also Joel Edgerton, who was Uncle Owen in The Phantom Menace and is starring alongside Natalie in Jane Got A Gun.

A new Dior video interview, with Natalie looking rather stunning, has arrived and once more knocked The Charlies off the radar. Everytime I sit down to get them sorted out some big news comes along. I promise promise promise they will begin this weekend. Throw shoes at me if I fail to deliver.
Back to the interview, found by the other Miss Dior – EdenLiao, Natalie talks about Dior, the fragrance and working with Sofia Coppola. More a promo than a real interview but when she looks like that I don’t think many will mind.
And here are two new teasers for the upcoming Sofia Coppola directed short film, La Vie En Rose. They really are squeezing every inch out of this thing aren’t they? I can’t tell if I’m loving it or on the verge of shouting, in my best old man voice, “just get on with it”. Thanks to Kitten!
Another great heads up from EdenLiao – that the Dior Tumblr page is updating constantly with new photos and teasers from the upcoming Dior short film. Click the thumbnail below to check out what they have to offer.
