Natalie Portman Revisits ‘Black Swan’ for Dior Ad

While training for her role in ‘Black Swan’, Natalie Portman lose 20 pounds and trained 8 hours a day. Since the films’ release, which garnered the 31-year-old an Academy Award, Portman has given birth to baby Aleph… but that hasn’t prevented her from reprising her role for a new Christian Dior advertisement.

In the Dior ad, Portman wears a strapless silk couture gown, similar to the black tutu worn in the final scenes of ‘Black Swan’ when she transforms from the white swan into the trouble black swan. The gorgeous ads were shot in the fountain at Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris.

Portman’s Dior ads, although dawning a Black Swan-esque dress, actually re-enact a famous scene from Fellini’s 1960 film ‘La Dolce Vita’. In the scene, Anita Ekberg wades in the Trevi fountain in Rome.

Portman has been the face of Miss Dior since December 2010, but this ad marks her first since giving birth.
