Natalie Portman’s Nude Shoot Benefits Charity

Needless to say, a naked Natalie Portman is naturally noteworthy. The 31-year-old newlywed has gone (tastefully) nude in a new campaign for Dior beauty (because what better way to promote a new line of lipcolor than by removing all sartorial surplus?).

The Israeli-born, Harvard-educated, and all-around awesome actress has been snapped in the buff before for Dior to hawk their Miss Cherie fragrance. But when (now former) Dior designer John Galliano hurled anti-Semitic remarks in a Paris bar early last year, Ms. Portman came out condemning him and quit the company, saying that “as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”

Fortunately for fans of her body of, er, work, Galliano’s replacement Raf Simons seems like a stand-up guy. And Natalie’s campaign bares a little of her (kind) soul to boot: proceeds from the new eight-shade lipstick collection will go to the Free the Children Foundation, and she personally picked the stick of Grège #169 for her mouth make-up. “I chose the color Grège because it’s the one I’d pick to wear myself,” she said in a press release. From your painted lips to our eager ears, Ms. Portman.
