Natalie Portman on the cover of Vogue? It’s a wonderful actress, very gifted (besides being really, really pretty) who was lucky enough to try on a vast portfolio of roles. And now she’s taking the Vogue US cover for January 2011 (as photograph by Peter Lindbergh and wearing a J Mendel dress).
I think it hit me why Anna Wintour goes for celebs for her covers. She only picks the celebs of the moment, those who are in high fashion during that print – month. And Natalie Portman owns the spotlight with that Darren Aronofski Black Swan movie! I wonder why they felt the need to plump her lips… Oh well. And what’s with that “Why we get fat” story? Wasn’t Natalie enough to sell the magazine? They had to go for such a cheesy cover line? (photo via)
