Director Anton Corbijin stages a runaway bride situation in the Cote D’Azur for the latest Miss Dior video campaign, starring Natalie Portman.
Portman (who has been previously shot by Sofia Coppola and Tim Walker for Dior campaigns) stars in the new Miss Dior campaign in a film called “It’s Miss, Actually”. In the ad, shot by celebrated director Anton Corbijn, Natalie Portman plays a bride-to-be who clearly isn’t all that enamoured with the idea of getting hitched in the Cote D’Azur.
“The story is about escaping, about getting away from all the things that tie you down in life,” Corbijn told Vogue. “Natalie Portman was fantastic. She is real, she’s genuine. You can see it on the screen, and people relate to it. I think that this ‘truth’ is more important than beauty. Being a beautiful woman is not enough. She’s a real person, a good person, and her personality makes the difference.”
