Is too late for the Academy to review Natalie Portman’s Miss Dior Cherie ad before casting their Oscars votes? We’re kidding, of course; you know they’ve all voted for Natalie anyway. So let’s think of her commercial more of a victory lap, a reminder that not only is the Black Swan star pregnant, engaged to be married and this season’s most acclaimed actress, she’s also getting paid to blindfold a hot male model. After seeing this, we’d vote her into Congress if we could get her on the ballot.
In addition to bathing in her sunglasses and trying on her man-friend’s tie, Portman shows a little skin as she zips up her couture gown. Any chance we can save some of this elegant gorgeousness for next year’s Oscar race? Natalie’s next big film is Thor, and we doubt running around in the desert while mythical gods battle it out is really going to cut it as far as awards season 2012 is concerned.
