Late last week, Dior released their latest campaign for Diorskin starring none other than Black Swan beauty Natalie Portman.
Portman seems like a natural choice for the luxury skincare brand–she’s beautiful, recently won an Oscar and has already worked with the brand as the face of Dior Cherie. Only, the actress and new momy has a troubled history with the brand. Portman was one of the few to take a stand against John Galliano following the anti-Semitic incidences that got him fired from Dior, saying in a statement released in March: “I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”
Dior has since cut ties with Galliano, so Portman hasn’t exactly gone against her words. But after manning the fashion house for over a decade, Galliano’s name is forever linked to the label. And since this Diorskin campaign must have been shot months ago…it all feels a little…strange.
