With the Oscars just a few days away Natalie Portman must be pottering around her house, looking for the best place to display that little gold statue she’s set to bring back on Sunday night. Her amazing performance in Black Swan, and yes, the pregnancy, engagement to the dashing Mr Millepied and endless red carpets appearances, have dominated our attention these past few months but remember that Dior commercial we spotted her filming in Paris with a certain Ms Coppola last summer?
Well, the ad for Miss Dior Cherie now out and needless to say, we love it! What’s not to like? Natalie in a frilly black Dior dress with a flick of eyeliner and a bunch of pale pink roses, walking around Paris on a beautiful sunny day, fixing the bow-tie of a lovely young man while Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin sing ‘Je t'aime... moi non plus’ in the background…very sweet, very chic and very Coppola and Dior. Having said that, we’re now convinced that next time we take our bubble bath our Dior shades stay on – that’s tres glamorous American in Paris! No?
