Natalie attended Miss Dior Exhibition on June 19, 2014 in Shanghai, China. Nat wore a Dior white silk dress for the occasion which she set off with black accessories: pointy-toed Dior pumps and a matching clutch.

The opening night here has such great energy of all the, of course, people here who are seeing the exhibit for the first time in Shanghai, but also of this sort of reunion for all these women artists who are represented in the exhibition who of course are reuniting again after last year’s opening in Paris. So it’s very exciting to sort of see it a second time with the same group of people. It’s starting to feel like this sisterhood,” Natalie said in a video released by Dior.

Greed, a New Fragrance by Francesco Vezzoli

Apr 26 • by Maria • Comments OffVideos

“Greed, a New Fragrance by Francesco Vezzoli” crystallizes the Italian-born artist’s interest in advertising and celebrity. The work takes the form of a 60-second commercial directed by Roman Polanski and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman as two women embroiled in a wrestling match over a fictional perfume. Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s “Belle Haleine: Eau de Violette” (1921), Vezzoli replaces Duchamp’s image with his own on the label of the bottle.

Michelle Williams slides open the bedroom doors and slinks up to Natalie Portman, who nervously brushes her hair and glances at an oversized bottle of perfume called Greed. On the label is a photograph of artist Francesco Vezzoli decked out in drag.

After Williams detects the scent on Portman’s neck, both characters fall to the floor. In a flurry of wrestling moves, they try to wrench away the bottle from each other. The 60-second faux commercial, directed by Roman Polanski, closes with Vezzoli picking up the bottle and leaving the women in an entwined heap on the floor.
