This is a quiet week in Natland, so it´s a good time to do a compilation of tidbits about the next Natalie film to be released.

Nothing better than a few tidbits to start the weekend…

-Elle Malaysia has an article on Dior Love Chain, A initiative by the House of Dior and Natalie. The Dior Love Chain calls upon people all across the globe to share what they would do for love. For every shared answer, USD$1 will be donated to WE Charity, organisation that has Natalie as one of its ambassadors, and helps impoverished families around the world. The article also has a great photo of Natalie taken during the Dior event in Paris last month:

-Natalie has a brief appearance in this book trailer. This is a funny video to promote the upcoming book “Things You Should Already Know About Dating, You F***ing Idiot”, written by Parks and Recreation alum Ben Schwartz and TV writer Laura Moses. Along with Natalie, artists like Lin-Manuel Miranda, J.J. Abrams or Don Cheadle appear in it:
