Portman on Dior photoshoot

Natalie Portman has gushed about working with the “talented” Steven Meisel for her Dior photoshoot.

The Black Swan beauty fronts the brand's Dior Rouge lipstick campaign, which has become iconic since its launch in 1953. After taking over from Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly, Natalie felt privileged to work with the notorious photographer.

“It was an honour to work with such a talented photographer. [He] really knows how to seize that specific, fleeting moment… He has incredible intuition and an unerring aesthetic sense,” she gushed to

She felt even more comfortable being able to wear a casual outfit teamed with a bright red lipstick. Being a mother to two-year-old son Aleph, who she has with husband Benjamin Millepied, Natalie could relate to the laidback clothes.

“I prefer to imagine wearing red with jeans and stilettos... It’s an outfit I wear more often than an evening dress," she said.

The 32-year-old star often finds herself adding a splash of lipstick before heading out. However she makes sure to check her teeth when wearing a particular colour.

“I regularly wear lipstick, often in a natural colour. I put it on spontaneously without even thinking about it,” she said. “If you’re wearing red, check your teeth often!”

Another famous beauty who has teamed up with Dior is The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence.

The 23-year-old actress shows off her flawless skin in her latest Miss Dior campaign, where she is photographed make-up free. These pictures contrast with her first campaign for the brand, where she was criticised for being Photoshopped.

Rather than deny the accusations, Jennifer agreed and admitted she loves the computer software.

"I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course it's Photoshop - people don't look like that," she told Access Hollywood shortly after the first set of photos was released in February.
