Natalie Portman's French fancy nails

Natalie Portman likes to wear a natural nail color but prefers a red hue for her lips.

The American actress is known for her flawless beauty and always shines at red-carpet events.

Natalie's style can be described as classic, which also extends to her nail and make-up looks. While she's happy to add colour now and again, she's a big fan of more neutral tones.

"I like a natural nail colour for a clean-nail effect but I also like strong shades for special occasions - bright red or very rich cherry. The Dior team is telling me that the French manicure is coming back and I'm pretty happy about that. It's classic," Natalie smiled to the British edition of Hello! magazine.

Natalie has worked with Dior since 2010, and is currently starring in their latest foundation campaign, DiorSkin Star.

The 33-year-old has always had strong ideas on what being beautiful is, and thinks both her mom and grandmother personify different aspects of beauty.

"My mother - natural and radiant - and my grandmother, who is quite different - very stylish and loves jewellery and make-up. Each of them embodies facets of femininity that I love. I feel every woman can be individually beautiful," she revealed.

She also takes inspiration from former Hollywood legends when it comes to choosing her cosmetics.

Her go-to red lipstick is one by Dior Rouge, which was also a favourite of stars from cinema's golden era.

"This lipstick is legendary. Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly always wore it, Josephine Baker as well - she never wore anything but Rouge Dior. I love the idea of perpetuating these strong bonds between Dior and cinema," she gushed.
