Brand ambassadors are out in full force for September. Kristen Stewart is doing her thing for Chanel on Vanity Fair and now Natalie Portman is promoting all things Christian Dior on British Harper’s Bazaar. We’ve come to admire the magazine a great deal over recent months and following an unexpected model cover last month, British Bazaar‘s most important offering of the year doesn’t fall short. Natalie’s September 2019 cover appearance marks a first for the Hollywood actress (despite numerous covers for the American edition) captured by Pamela Hanson at Villa Carlotta in Los Angeles.
The issue was a hit with the majority of our forum members. “It almost feels like a Richard Avedon 80s Vogue cover. I like it,” approved mikel.
“Red lipstick on a beautiful woman is a classic recipe, but also it feels like a direct reproduction of her Rouge Dior ads. There’s probably a Dior makeup ad on the back page or somewhere inside where she looks exactly the same. That said — still beautiful, still buying,” shared tigerrouge.
“You’ll never hear me complaining over the sight of a gorgeous Natalie Portman on the cover of a fashion magazine, looking radiant and poised on a straightforward and glamorous September cover. I am all for the close-up shot, the warm coloring, the makeup and red Bazaar masthead,” said vogue28.
“Very classic but beautiful. In times when so many magazines seem to be trying too hard, I love something a bit understated,” appreciated KateTheGreatest.
“She looks flawless on both covers,” praised burbuja8910.
“This is just incredibly beautiful. Her face is one in a million. Nothing reinventing the wheel about this cover, but who cares when the wheel looks as glorious as this?” raved happycanadian.
