Missed Natalie Portman at the Oscars? Watch her in this new Miss Dior video


Text: Renée Batchelor

If you were watching the Oscars this morning and missed seeing Best Actress nominee Natalie Portman, who did not attend, catch her in part three of this docu-series with Dior where she explores the craftsmanship behind Dior's haute couture atelier

There is so much that goes into each bottle of Dior fragrance. And when visiting Dior's legendary haute couture atelier — you might have caught glimpses in the movie Dior, and I  — Natalie Portman turns into a petite main, one of the seamstresses in the atelier as she tries her hand at embroidering a bespoke bow for the Prestige Edition of the Miss Dior fragrance. Her creation is an ultra-feminine take that is studded with pink and jet beads to represent the floralcy and beauty of the fragrance.

Caught up in the task of designing and sewing, the multi-talented Portman who also speaks French — as well as Hebrew, Spanish and Japanese — and who directed her first full-length movie A Tale of Love and Darkness in 2015, shows of yet another talent, as she's lost in the process of creation. Whether it's directing a film or hand-stitching a piece of haute couture that will stand the test of time, Portman reminds us in the clip, "Passion is essential to creating value."
