BEAUTY THAT HASN’T AGED NATALIE PORTMAN

NATALIE PORTMAN, WE STILL REMEMBER HER BY THE ICONIC MATHILDA CHARACTER IN THE MOVIE LEON. SHE WAS ONLY 14 YEARS OLD THEN. SHE HAS LIFTED THE BAR TO A HIGHER LEVEL WITH EVERY MOVIE SHE WAS IN. THE TALENTED ACTRESS WHO HAS WON THE ‘BEST ACTRESS’ OSCAR IS ALSO ON THE RADAR OF HIGH FASHION BRANDS. PORTMAN HAS BEEN THE FACE OF DIOR FOR MORE THAN 13 YEARS. THIS YEAR WE SEE HER IN THE NEW MISS DIOR BLOOMING BOUQUET ADVERTISEMENT.

Born on June 9, 1981 in Jerusalem, the only child of an actress mother and doctor father, Natalie Portman’s life began to change when she moved to Washington at the age of three with her family. After receiving ballet and modern dance training from the American Theater Dance Workshop in New York, she continued her entry into the art world by attending classes on Creative and Performing Arts at the Usdan Center. Her first step to her movie career happened when she was discovered at the age of 12 in a pizza parlor. Thanks to modeling she was recognized, but she continued her journey by going to theater camps during summer holidays as she wanted to actmore than modeling. At the age of 14, she got the leading role that will change her life and played the character of Mathilda in Luc Besson’s cult film Léon. This iconic character has been in the memory of moviegoers for years, both with her haircut and with her acting from the movie. Thus Portman’s journey to Hollywood, full of successes up to the Oscar statuette, began. In 1999, she was nominated for the ‘Golden Globe Award’ for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ in the movie ‘Anywhere But Here’, in which she starred with Susan Sarandon, after which she played the character of Padmé Amidala in the first film of the second trilogy, ‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’. Portman can not attend the premiere of the movie, which is highly anticipated by the whole world, because it was exam week. On this occasion, let’s note that the successful actress is also a Harvard University psychology graduate. Returning to her career on the silver screen, she was nominated for a BAFTA and an Oscar in the ‘Supporting Actress’ category for her role as Alice in the movie ‘Closer’in 2004, and she won the Golden Globe award that year. Then she received the leadrole in ‘V for Vendetta’, which has made her mark among cult films. She got full marks from moviegoers with her hair cut for the movie and her acting performance. The beautiful actress, who confidently climbs the ladder of success, plays the character of Nina in the movie ‘Black Swan’ in 2010 and takes home the ‘Best Actress’ Oscar.

In addition to all these achievements, if we talk about her private life, we can summarize as follows; she also met the love of her life in the movie ‘Black Swan’, for which she won an Oscar, her relationship with ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, who helped with the dance scenes in the movie, began during this movie, and the couple got married in 2012, and after they had a child named Aleph. Now a mother of two, Portman is close to high fashion brands with her beauty and grace, as well as film makers. So much so that Portman has been the brand face of the French fashion house Dior since 2010. Now let’s take a closer look at this long-standing collaboration.

The Indispensable Face of Miss Dior

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a surprising bundle that appears before us with its cheerful and delicate character, a sudden pleasure and a declaration of love that almost captivates you. Enveloping the senses, Miss Dior has the soul of a passionate woman.

When Christian Dior first launched Miss Dior in 1947, she imagined her as a kind of remedy for troubles and tears of happiness after bad times. Since then, Miss Dior has preserved this identity as the basis of the project to be beautiful and happy. The new Blooming Bouquet also represents both the symbol of rebirth and the flowers that the vibrant spring offers us. While the fragrance is a tribute to radiance, it also creates its signature by spreading the power of joy around it. Brilliant pink, delicate lilac, and a cerulean lap of wild flowers offer a versatile bunch in the colors of freedom. Natalie Portman’s radiant smile is captured in new frames filled with sunshine and fresh air. Positioned against the background of the deep blue sky, confident and radiant Miss Dior tells us this wonderful truth with her out stretched arms and determined eyes; “Love is a bunch of flowers.” The beautiful actress with her radiance almost flies into the air with happiness. Miss Dior, who loves life, is determined and dances with life, reflects her soul like never before. Natalie Portman, the beloved sister of Christian Dior, the inspiration for this legendary perfume and the proud heir of Catherine Dior, the passionate grower of Grasse Roses, exudes the fragrance’s manifesto values. Courage and freedom, love and youth are the values that the fashionista-perfumer wanted to bring together in the first fragrance he produced to relieve the boredom of difficult times. The beauty of Natalie Portman, posing for Camilla Akrans’s lens in camera and photo shoots, is breathtaking, intense and moving. She shows off her strength as she ties a Millefiori silk scarf around her wrist or holds a bunch of wild flowers in her lap.

There is love in the air

What if love was Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet? In a moment suspended in time, chords appear and they prowl around proclaiming the known. Fragrance, like a beating heart, announces love at first sight and finally a story that will last forever… Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet tells this whole story in a scent contrast. It makes a resolute introduction, as full of life as love, with the vivacious dapper plant and aromatic notes, gently touched by bergamot, which has a pleasant bitterness. This magnificent opening, resembling a dizzying smile, is as striking as love itself.

After that, it is time to explore and open the veils of emotion with the Isparta rose, the name of nobility and versatility, as well as a passionate declaration of love. The rose wanders in all its splendor between the sweetness of its velvety petal and the light fruit aromas that it generously reveals. Seductive and fresh, sensual and curvy, she walks arm in arm with the peony and rises stepping on the expertly concealed traces of Patchouli. Patchouli, whose vague presence is so alluring, adds light and spirit to the flowers that rule the kingdom. A sparkling heart note completes this moment of happiness, where everything intoxicates and delights the senses. This exuberant flow of love is centered on the soft cover of light musks. Embodied in a transparent pink liquid, this protective final stop is a gentle caress, eternity in the beauty of a lasting fragrance.

A Couture Curse

The glass of the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet bottle, which carries the concept of luxury to the next level, is now lighter. The bottle design, following the path of Miss Dior Eau de Parfum, is crowned with a new and signature couture bow. Wonderful craftsmanship is evident in a few centimeters, and jacquard ribbon is produced in the glazed workshops of Maison Faure, one of the largest ribbon manufacturers in France, founded in the Saint-Etienne region in 1864. Each centimeter of this precious ribbon made of 368 threads consists of at least 12000 thread passes. Miss Dior’s scent, which permeates the hands of the ribbon masters and spreads to the abstract touches of creation, was the inspiration for the ribbon woven in a few months on traditional looms.
