Natalie Portman’s beauty favourites

With an infectious smile, Portman – who has been the face of Dior across numerous products since 2010 – was the obvious choice to front Rouge Dior, the brand’s luxe lipstick that delivers intense, long-lasting colour. “It’s been an incredible experience to explore so many different products and innovations over the years, and learn more about the history of the brand. It’s a great honour to be in the company of great women and to have a company that is supportive of my career.” Portman’s Dior Rouge Grège hue may be a natural grey-beige shade, but she is adamant that “red is truly the colour of life – with so many shades to choose from, it has the essence of femininity, energy, passion and romance, but exudes an air of elegance”.

She may look stunning in vivid red, but when Portman isn’t working, “I like to keep things simple; less is more. I use minimal coverage, apply a primer, and try to wear more neutral tones, because I want to allow my skin to breathe when it can. I also use sunscreen every day, and the Dior Bronze one smells amazing. Ultimately, the best beauty routine is a good night’s sleep and plenty of water. Rested and hydrated, skin always looks best. “I like to use base on my lips, before putting on full lip coverage so lipstick lasts longer. I also love Lip Glow, which is a great natural-looking colour for those times when I don’t want to put on a heavier or darker shade.”

Stella McCartney reveals menswear

This one’s for the boys: Stella McCartney has unveiled her debut menswear collection AND it’s already available to pre-order online. Guests – including Kate Moss, artist Damien Hirst, Salma Hayek, and Orlando Bloom – were invited to the Thursday night presentation, which was held at Abbey Road Studios. “There was so much inspiration behind the collection. I of course looked to the men in my life, my husband, my father, my friends. I also thought of great men of the world, people who have had an impact, like artists and musicians,” the McCartney told Vogue UK.

As part of the presentation models dressed in the collection were photographed making their way across the famous Abbey Road – paying homage to The Beatles’ famous album cover and McCartney’s father, Paul.
