Natalie Portman is having the “moment” right now. The actress is already gaining Oscar-buzz for her performance in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, her film production company is set to release two films next year, and she has landed a beauty contract with Dior. The latter, which was announced by Women’s Wear Daily in June, has Portman as the face behind the Miss Dior Cherie parfum. The campaign shot by photographer Tim Walker and the commercial directed by Sophia Coppola and the advertisements will be released in March 2011.
President and chief executive office of Parfums Christian Dior, Claude Martinez, described Portman as the quintessence of a Dior woman for she is “magical. She is radiant, and graceful, also intelligent and committed with a unique luminous intensity.”
The Miss Dior Cherie fragrance is coveted by women for it’s sweet and light scent that is playful, youthful, yet timeless and elegant. The notes of green tangerine, violette, and pink jasmine join perfectly with patchouli, musk, strawberry leaves and caramel popcorn for a delectably sweet and sensual fragrance.
In regards to her own perfume collection, Portman tells Women’s Wear Daily that she is a “one perfume kind of girl, probably because I only wear perfume on special occasions. I think it’s part of dressing up and feeling elegant and sexy and unique; scent is so specific to each woman, you want to have a scent that sets you apart.”Tags: black swan, dior, fragrance, john galliano, miss dior, miss dior cherie, natalie portman, parfum, perfume, sophia coppola, tim walker
