Well, what do you know, it seems Dior’s crush on Natalie Portman has hit the big time – the actress, who was announced as the face of Dior Parfums this spring, has just been unveiled as the new leading lady for one of its most iconic fragrances.

Yep, first up for Natalie in her new – and first face of – role will be fronting Miss Dior Cherie, one of the brand’s best-selling scents. Well, there’s nothing like being thrown in at the deep end.

Having just been shot by Tim Walker in a series of print ads and similarly by Sophia Coppola for the TV campaign, we’ll have to wait until next year to see Ms. Portman in first luxury beauty campaign when the ads make their debut in March – but frankly, we’re in no doubt the 29-year-old will triumph.

That said, she might need to touch up on her beauty application. “I’m pretty casual in my beauty routine in my real life,” the actress, who was chosen for being “charismatic and elegant”, told WWD. “Some might say sloppy.”

We can’t wait to see the campaign.
