Natalie Portman Covers 'Vogue' January 2011

Natalie Portman Covers 'Vogue' January 2011

Natalie Portman graces the cover of Vogue‘s January 2011 issue wearing a J. Mendel hand pleated silk chiffon dress.

The magazine recently looked inside the training that the 29-year-old actress went through to prepare for her role in Black Swan.

To lengthen and strengthen her body, Natalie worked eight hours a day, six days a week with Mary Helen Bowers, a former dancer in the New York City ballet.

Mary believes that “you can really transform any body type into one looking like a ballerina: long, lean, sculpted, and strong, but still very elegant.”

Natalie has already been winning awards for her role in the movie. She received the Best Actress award from both the New York and Boston Film Critics Societies!

    I LOVE HER….HOPE SHE WINS AN ASCAR

  • Claire

    She’s such an elegant woman.
    Idunno about the cover though, Vogue should’ve picked a better picture of her….probably my least cover of her on a magazine…

  • meh

    Just one more starlet with a surgically chiseled schnozz and fake lips. Are any of them natural any more?

  • jane

    WTF is up with her hand? It looks paralyzed, or fake! Really weird picture for the cover of a magazine, especially Vogue.

  • Corbin

    @meh: First she doesn’t have fake lips and second she’s one of the most natural looking actresses in Hollywood. Why are you such a hater?

    meh: you’re retarded, she’s all natural.

  • Twi

    @Corbin
    So you don’t deny the nose job? I think Natalie admitted in a magazine interview that she wished she never had her nose done.

  • meh

    It has nothing to do with hate. It’s just the truth. Women and impressionable young girls are being sold these images of women who are not real, who paid a lot of money to look the way they do, and they compare themselves to these “perfect” faces and bodies, and it makes them feel not good enough. It’s really sad. It’s also sad that apparently you have to fix your face to get an acting job in Hollywood. Even if you were pretty to begin with.

  • sarah

    Ilove her! she’s so beautiful & talnted.

  • lol

    Hey, Chris X, Google it and you’ll find out about what she did to her face, complete with before and afters. It’s undeniable. Calling someone “retarded” is really douchey.

  • LastWord

    @meh: Watch the movie “The Professional” and you’ll see Natalie Portman has the same exact features as she has now and she was 13.

  • whitney

    BEAUTIFUL cover shot. Very worthy of Vogue.

  • BB

    Best acting since DeNiro did Raging Bull
    I was riveted by her performance.
    Everyone was amazing.
    Great director = great acting= superb movie.

    Omg what this girl werid and boring

  • Jaz

    So Peaceful and Beautiful.

  • the truth

    She always looks good on a cover are a magazune to me

  • Millie

    Natalie looked amazin in the movie, but for me the movie did not live upto its hype. The only interesting part was when she danced as the black swan. That was hair rasing. Apart from that, through the rest of the movie I was waiting to be amazed and dazzled and I never was.

  • tom

    @meh: Yeah, some of them are still natural. natalie is one of them.

  • Zoe

    Her trainer, Mary, said that she can transform any body type into looking like a ballerina. I am petite and curvy and I’d have to lose too much body fat to look like that. I’d have to be anorexic!

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    …seems like she’s just making every single movie that comes her way.

  • kiki

    I think Natalie is all natural too, though its true that practically everyone in Hollywood is plastic but I think she is one of the few who isnt. She has always been beautiful.

  • Corbin

    I think Natalie is one of the few actresses that does anything crazy or outrageous that the media is ready to pounce on (e.g., Lindsay Lohan, Tara Reid, etc.). For that particular reason, I think a lot of other actresses in her generation look up to her, which is always commendable.

  • Umm..Really?

    @before and after: How reliable is this website?

  • hyoid

    gorgeous, talented and not a fame wh*re – love her!

  • nonno

    @Umm..Really?: there are photographic evidence of natalie’s nose job all over google image search…..

  • Charlotte

    FINALLY her time to shine. After starring in that Star Wars mess and a string of crappy films, I can at last see Mathilda staring back at me.

  • bic

    @BB:

    you have lost it

  • wharton

    Natural beauty my ass. SHE HAS HAD A NOSE JOB. Her pictures on the premiere of Beautiful Girls are the prove, look for them, is pretty clear she had just done something to her nose, which looks swollen and extremely weird from what it used to. From then on the upper side of her nose looks very thin compared to the rest. And when she was 19 or 20 she finished the job. Look closer, IT’S THERE

    Natalie Portman looks so hot and sexy in these dresses.Her hardwork for her role in Black Swan is creditable. And rightly she di n’t win the Oscar she deserved it.
    We her fans in India are overwhelmed with joy to see Natalie so gorgeous and trendy. Ata girl way to go.
