Just another boring US Vogue cover. Natalie Portman looks very pretty but general feeling you get when you see this cover is more neutral than positive. You are happy to see Natalie but the way she’s featured on the first page is not attractive. Her hand gesture is a bit awkward and her lips look too plump. Or it’s just me who tries to find shortcomings here?
And why is she wearing a J. Mendel dress? As far as I understand Anna Wintour asked Natalie Portman to grace Vogue US January 2011 cover because Natalie’s role in Black Swan is a hot topic now. But in the movie the actress wore Rodarte. Why not the Rodarte dress then?
