After going topless for Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie ad last year, the recently married Natalie Portman tastefully shed her clothes once more for the label’s new Rouge Dior Nude Lipcolor line. Far from the Lolita-esque persona the actress channeled for the fragrance ad, the new ad sees the brunette beauty in a decidedly more mature light.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Portman leaves innocence behind and puts on the face of a woman all grown up as she lounges on the sofa with her bare back on full display and a silk sheath to cover her behind. In the ad, Portman brings a titillating smolder to match the simple allure of her glowing and flawless skin. Although the subject of the ad appears to be playing second fiddle to her near nudity, move your gaze upward and you’ll be just as captured by Portman’s arresting beauty—and luscious lips, to be precise.
The new lipstick line features eight new shades, including Grege 169, which she’s wearing in the ad. According to Portman, she chose the color Grege “because it’s the one I’d pick to wear myself.” Of the number 169, she furthers that it contains various dates “that are important to me and my family.” Sales from the said lipstick will benefit the Free the Children Assocation, to which the actress is an ambassador. The new line will be available this fall.
