CLEO (Malaysia) - - THE BEAUTY BOX -

ward-win­ning ac­tress. Pro­ducer. Di­rec­tor. Style icon. Beauty muse. It seems like there’s lit­tle that Natalie Port­man can’t do. As the face of Dior since 2010, she’s been busy this year with the brand’s two largest cam­paigns — the launch of the new Rouge Dior and Miss Dior Ab­so­lutely Bloom­ing (as we’ve re­vealed in the pre­vi­ous story). In the Rouge Dior cam­paign, the catchy “I Feel Good” tune by James Brown is rein­car­nated, with Natalie pos­ing in a pho­to­booth, cap­tur­ing her at her most can­did and re­veal­ing. In the Ab­so­lutely Bloom­ing ad, we see an ir­rev­er­ent young ru­n­away bride fly­ing off into the sun­set with her beau in his chop­per. Both of which per­son­i­fies the ideal Dior woman — one who’s to­tally real. So what makes the world’s big­gest beauty icon tick? You played many roles in your ca­reer since you were a child. Do you con­sider make-up as a work­ing need or does it have a play­ful role in your life? It’s both — make-up is such a big part of a film char­ac­ter and tells a story of its own. Whether you’re play­ing in a pe­riod piece or a mod­ern film, it’s im­por­tant to match that char­ac­ter’s look with the time pe­riod. In both my ev­ery­day life and press ap­pear­ances, make-up also helps ex­press who I am. As the face of Dior Beauty since 2010 for var­i­ous lines — Rouge Dior Lip­stick, Diorskin makeup, Dior­show Mas­cara, Miss Dior Per­fume — has your at­ti­tude to­wards Dior changed over the years? The im­age of class and his­tory still re­mains, but it’s been an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence to ex­plore so many dif­fer­ent prod­ucts and in­no­va­tions over the years, and learn more about the brand his­tory. It’s a great hon­our to be in the com­pany of great women and to have a com­pany that’s sup­port­ive of my ca­reer. years, and it’s so great to have him rein­vent­ing clas­sic Dior lip­stick shades. He’s a true artist and a won­der­ful per­son; work­ing with him is a plea­sure. I think when we filmed at the Ho­tel du Cap for the Miss Dior cam­paign. It felt like the golden days of movie-mak­ing to have some­thing so lav­ish.
