Natalie Portman Goes Naked in Latest Dior Ad

Natalie Portman Nude for Dior Courtesy Dior

It’s nothing we haven’t seen before — but it’s certainly something we haven’t seen in a while.

Natalie Portman bares quite a bit in her latest ad for Dior beauty, this appropriately for the new Rouge Dior Nude Lipcolor. The collection includes eight new shades, including a special hue, Grège #169, proceeds from which benefit Portman’s charity of choice, the Free the Children Association. The organization uses leadership training to empower and inspire the world’s youth.

“I chose the color Grège because it’s the one I’d pick to wear myself,” the newlywed actress says in a release. “The number [169] contains different dates that are important to me and my family.” Grège was also the color used to represent Christian Dior’s “New Look” back in 1947.

This is the first Dior ad we’ve seen from Portman since John Galliano’s fall from grace last year; the then-designer went on a very public anti-Semitic rant in Paris and was eventually fired after facing criticism from Portman and the public. In April, it was announced that former Jil Sander creative director Raf Simons was taking over at Dior, marking a new era for the brand. Tell us: What do you think of Portman’s new ad?

She looks beautiful, as always :) I love the way her hair looks in this ad, too!

Leeza on


wendy on

It makes my back hurt. :-) Seriously, she looks awesome!

pixie on

She’s gotta be the most beautiful woman in the world.

GreyGal on

I think Natalie is quite beautiful and would be the perfect fit for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movies. She’d make an amazing Anastasia Steele (her stunning youthful look, strong screen presence and knowing when to show skin tastefully). Imagine her opposite Michael Fassbender as Christian! Yum!

That New Yorker Guy on

Natalie Portman is a very gorgeous woman,
and her husband is a lucky man!

Amy on

If that’s the lipstick she chose for her charity, it’s lovely.

Kristy on

She is for sure the most Beautiful Woman EVERRRRR! Next to me. hehe jk lol GORGEOUS!

biele on

Yes, she has a pretty face. But all I see is photoshop…

summer on

Exquisite. She is fabulous.

Julia Emry on

Beautiful :) I love her make up!!

littleshelterpoochgal on

Beautiful picture! But didn’t she have a baby not too long ago? Where’d her boobs go? Photoshopped out?

Ana on

She’s beautiful NO buts about shopped or otherwise-she’s gorgeous.

Will on

why doesn’t she do a sequel to “the professional” that she made as a girl. she was great and her character wanted to become an assassin some day. she’s old enough and the movie would be a hit. SO MAKE THE FLICK ALREADY!!!!

Laila on

doesn’t say sexy to me…for some reason, just don’t see that with her…but not a bad ad

catca on

Not only does Natalie look stunning, but I like the composition of the ad in terms of the mood evoked quite a bit as well (my goodness it’s sexy). The makeup looks flawless and definitely makes you want to buy Dior cosmetics.

John on

Grow up she is not naked…

fanofboardwalkempire on

Natalie is just beautiful in this Dior advertisement! Really beautiful and so serene- Just love it!

Holly on

I thought she was a big vegan … Dior animal tests – why would she involve herself with them???

gavin on

I hate when they put so much make up on them you can hardly tell who they are.She is beautiful without it……and would have preferred her pic that way

mjr1515 on

still one of the prettiest women on the planet

Yougotitdude on

Oh great…shes flawless. After I had my baby I looked (and still look) like a deflated skin heap. Not fair. lol

timestopper73 on

Most Excellent!!!!!!! %-)

Natalie Portman is beautiful. So why photoshop the life out of her? Why not let us see real people?

KB on

She really did grow into a beautiful woman. That photo is breathtaking.

Lee on

She’s fabulous!!

xoxoo on

I don’t know why celebrities endorse any synthetic chemical based brands from Pantene, Loreal to Dior, etc..these companies are polluting the eco system, water, etc…and if people keep buying it, they will want to make a profit at the expense of the environment! If you care about the environment don’t buy any chemical based brands for anything…and eventually your health will suffer too!

roadking01 on

i would follow her for a mile just to eat the peanuts outta her p00p! just kidding but she is a DOLL!!

meilani on

she’s beautiful!

Lisa on

She is so naturally beautiful. I hope they didn’t photoshop too much. I also hope she doesn’t turn to botox or fillers later – that’s when they all start to look like aliens.

Jumpinjohn on

A young Marlee Matlin!

kate on

the only people “highly anticipating” the 50 shades of grey movies are empty headed women who think submitting to a man’s every whim is “romantic” and not “pathetic.” natalie’s too classy and too smart to pedal such garbage, she’d never do it.

Frank on

What a great looking couch !

Mel J on

Yes, she shows a lot of skin … but it is a classic, tasteful pose and absolutely stunning!

annette on

stunning! art! beautiful!

Jeff on

As a straight man I have NO USE for lipstick, but if buying some of that stuff even got me CLOSE to Natalie, I’m pretty sure it would be more than worth the purchase! She just seems to get more lovely with time.

Shenae on

Sorry, she looks stoned.

Mike B on

What’s the BIG DEAL? You have seen her naked in Hotel Chevalier, Goya’s Ghosts, Closer, and No Strings Attached, just to name a few. OR, you can go to and see her there!

Diana on

Yes, but does the lipstick contain lead? Most of them do.

NickyAngel on

Beautiful picture…very modest

Monique on

Girl…put some clothes on!

BBB on

Another starlet showing skin. Wow, how totally unsurprising.

visitor on

She looks great!

comment blog on

they could put a paper bad over her head and she’d still look beautiful. but could they not seriously do something with that hair?

Howard Foster on

Let’s see those boobs!

Maryanne on

Holy Photoshop. This looks NOTHING like Natalie Portman. I made my husband try and guess who this was and he had no clue. So sad they had to ruin a girl who needs no photoshopping. Tsk tsk…

Jaswant on

Dior had no choice Galliano is a great deiegnsr, but it’s better to lose him rather than millions of outraged customers. I suppose he was too self-confident. More and more celebrities distance themselves from him now, but I can see a great deal of hypocrisy in the world of show business.
