Natalie Portman stuns for Dior

Behind-the-scenes images from Natalie Portman's latest Miss Dior fragrance advert have been revealed.

The actress stars as the spirit of Miss Dior's fragrance in the new advert directed by Sofia Coppola.

Amongst the stand out pictures from the shoot is one in which Natalie dons a black strapless Raf Simons-designed dress to frolic in a fountain with her handsome co-star.

The gown, which was inspired by the first Miss Dior dress in 1947, is currently on show at the Dior display in London's Harrods store. This is part of an exhibition on the legendary fashion house that runs until April.

The Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Toilette commercial, which is entitled La Vie En Rose, sees Natalie in a captivating and alluring light.

The water theme that runs through the ad is associated with Natalie's memorable role in movie Black Swan.

On the official Miss Dior website the label reveals more about their perfect muse for the iconic scent.

"Her natural charm combined with an innate elegance would have delighted the designer, who saw Miss Dior as the fragrance of undisguised yet subtle femininity. Now at the pinnacle of her career, the actress lends her face to this leading perfume 65 years after it was created by Dior. Sensual and irresistible, Natalie Portman is a woman of fresh, sharp beauty. Miss Dior will be one of the most stunning roles she will ever play," the website gushed.

"Miss Dior is the heart and soul of the House of Dior, a link between the worlds of Parfumerie and Haute Couture. Watch the new film, learn about its history and its olfactory signatures. Enter into the world of a fragrance synonymous with love and absolute elegance."

Natalie has been associated with the Miss Dior perfume since she was signed in 2010. La Vie En Rose is the second collaboration between Sofiia, Natalie and photographer Tim Walker.

This scent is a new twist on the classic, said to feature "green chypre with strong neroli and rose notes tinged with blood orange."

It was revealed earlier today that Twilight actor Robert Pattinson shot a campaign for the French fashion house's menswear line last year. It had been speculated that Robert would be the new face of Dior's men's fragrance in October, but rumours were never confirmed.
