We’ve got a great batch of tidbits so let’s not waste any time…

– First up the big news was that the new Dior TV spot aired during the Grammy’s last night, which probably helped keep some viewers awake. Although to be fair, I saw Natalie’s Cold Mountain co-star Jack White tear it up so maybe the show wasn’t as coma inducing as usual? Anyway, the commercial doesn’t appear to be online yet but hopefully it’s only a matter of days/hours before it is available.

– Next up is a Twitter sighting from yesterday. I wonder who the overrated actor could be…

Natalie Portman’s eating lunch at the next table with overrated actor. Jealousy + proximity = my patty melt’s ruined.

– Finally, we have another Twitter sighting but this one is definitely genuine because it comes with a very cute photo.


Thanks to Ming Choo, Kitten and Garcy.

HQ Dior Ad

By | Nat-news

The current poll shines a line on one Dior print advert and now we have the HQ version of the other (and far better, imo) Dior print ad. A tip of the hat to EdenLiao.


Get the Look

Late last month, Natalie was spotted wearing Theonne’s Iona Engineered Rib Sweater in black (currently on sale) with a pair of Dior’s Cat’s Eye Sunglasses. Thanks to Kitten for the find.

New Poll + Paris Results

By | Site-news

It’s time. EdenLiao found a HQ of the advert below and now I want to make it the subject of our new poll.


Does the ad sell itself to you? VOTE HERE!

As for the last poll, there was quite a healthy spread of opinions regarding Natalie’s imminent move to Paris. I was quite surprised that more fans weren’t upset about it. I guess we’ve matured as a fanbase…for the most part 😛

Hit the jump for those results…

Miss Dior Print Ads

By | Nat-news, News

I’ve updated the gallery with the rather severe-looking print ads for Natalie’s upcoming Miss Dior fragrance campaign. Somewhat of a departure from the soft, playful look of Tim Walker’s old Miss Dior Chérie ads. What do you guys think?

Welcome Back, Miss Dior

Dior keeps on giving. Today we have two new photos from Natalie’s new campaign for Diorshow Iconic Overcurl and Mono Eyeshadow. And even though the resolution can be improved upon (*sends up the Eden-signal*) they are both really beautiful shots, don’t you agree?

New Poll + New Site Results

By | Site-news

Before we get to the new poll, here are the results of the last (and first on the new site) poll.


Dead even when it came to the highest praise and the most violent rejection of the new site, but happy to see that more than half of you are happy with the new surroundings and those less sure are willing to give it some time.

Today’s new poll is already a bit of a mess up because I couldn’t get the images to load with the poll. Will try and get that working tomorrow, but scroll down a little and you’ll clearly see the two photos we’re asking about.

Which new Dior photo was more memorable?

Another Day Of Dior

By | Nat-news

What a great start to the year. Eden found a clearer cropped look at the new Dior Iconic Overcurl photo, and with it a gorgeous new black and white shot that is either behind the scenes or “behind the scenes” – emphasis on the quotes.

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.
