Variations On A Dior Theme

By | Nat-news

 
Thanks to EdenLiao, we have several other looks at the new Dior photo. The campaign is Diorshow Iconic Overcurl, and let’s hope the image has not being manipulated in photoshop this time.

Dior Shows, We Tell

The first new photo of Natalie in ages and boy is it a good one. Here she is in a glimpse at a brand new Dior advert for the Diorshow campaign. Not wanting to sound greedy but hopefully there are more and better versions just around the corner. Thanks to Anqxxx for the find.

I’ve updated the gallery with a couple of new-old photos of Natalie speaking at a press conference for her Miss Dior campaign at Chelsea Piers in New York City back in 2010. These are some of the very few professional-looking photos we have of this appearance. Unfortunately, there’s only two and they’re watermarked. Boo.

Natalie’s DiorShow ad banned

By | Nat-news

In the most ridiculous news of the day, Natalie’s print ad for DiorShow New Look mascara has been banned by the ASA. Fashionista has the details:

According to an article by the Telegraph (since removed from their site) referenced by the Huffington Post, the brand’s beauty department is under fire after a mascara ad featuring Natalie Portman was reported to the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK. And who filed the complaint? Rival beauty company (and also a former ASA ban victim) L’Oréal UK, who allege that the ad for Dior’s Dior Show New Look Mascara exaggerates the effects of the mascara with Photoshop.

Dior claims that the image in question was originally intended for a lipstick ad, and that Portman is not wearing false eyelashes, per Vogue UK. Still, Dior has voluntarily withdrawn the ad rather than wait out a formal investigation, which would require that they argue that the allegations of digital enhancement were false. Further, Dior does admit to retouching Portman’s lashes to “separate/increase the length and curve of a number of her lashes and to replace/fill a number of missing or damaged lashes, for a more stylised, uniform and tidy effect.” We’re not initiated in beauty advert speak, but that kind of sounds to us like they did in fact digitally exaggerate the effects of the mascara.

Seriously scratching my head over this one considering it’s fairly tame as far as cosmetics advertisements go (unlike the over-the-top computer generated eyelashes I’ve seen in L’Oreal’s). If we’re going to ban beauty ads for being misleading, I think it’s only fair to ban them all.

I’ve replaced most of the photos from Natalie’s Alexi Lubomirski editorial (featured in the Stars in Dior coffee table book) with larger, higher quality versions. Again, a huge thanks to Jacqueline.

Cherryvanilla found a new promotional video for Dior’s The New Nude campaign, which features a lot of really nice shots of Natalie posing for the print ads. Hopefully this turns up somewhere in HQ.

I’ve updated the gallery with two new (albeit very low quality and unfortunately watermarked) photos from Natalie’s recent Dior promo. The photos were found alongside an interview with Natalie (my Spanish is pretty rusty, but it looks like more of the same old stuff) for the September 2012 issue of TELVA.

Rogue Dior Nude Preview

Garcy found a great preview of Natalie’s fall campaign for Rouge Dior’s Nude Grège N°169. If you’ve been following the campaign, you’ll remember this is the shade Natalie chose to promote in benefit of the Free The Children foundation. All profits from the sales will be going towards scholarships for girls’ secondary education in Kenya.
