Natalie Portman has been named the new face of Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. Portman has filmed a series of ads for the fragrance, and it’s no surprise that she wears Dior shoes in the ads. The only problem was that Portman is a vegan, and she doesn’t wear leather or other animal-based products. Fortunately, Dior found a way to accomodate the actress. They recreated their iconic shoes to comply with Portman’s vegan lifestyle.

Natalie Portman spoke with WWD about her experience working with Dior, and their willingness to provide her with shoes that are cruelty-free:
“One of the things that’s been so nice is that Dior made all of the shoes for me with no animals and no leather or anything, because I don’t wear any leather. They remade all my shoes so I can wear Dior shoes without taking lives.”
Natalie Portman’s co-star in the sexy Parfums Christian Dior ads is Alden Ehrenreich. The video ads were directed by Sofia Coppola. The print ads were shot by Tim Walker, a British fashion photographer.
