Dior had already teased us with this clip of an upcoming short film for its best-selling fragrance Miss Dior. Now, the wait is over — the Anton Corbijn directed film starring Natalie Portman has been unveiled.
In the film, the actress, who recently attended her first-ever couture show just a few days ago in Paris for Christian Dior’s Spring 2015 collection, is visibly uneasy about her impending nuptials. A nervous Natalie walks down the aisle with her father before taking off from the picturesque French Riviera venue, throwing off her heels and ripping off her wedding gown in the process. Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart” plays in the background as the runaway bride runs to be picked up by a nearby helicopter.
Corbijn told Vogue U.K., “The story is about escaping, about getting away from all the things that tie you down in life. 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.”
