The 31-year old actress married Benjamin Millepied at a traditional Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, California at the weekend. The wedding was held at a private property in the coastal town and amongst the 60 guests who were mostly family there were a few showbiz pals including Macaulay Culkin and Ivanka Trump.
Natalie met 35-year old choreographer Benjamin while she was shooting her Oscar-winning role in the movie Black Swan. The couple have a son Aleph, who was born in June last year.
Natalie appears to be quite relaxed shooting naked photo campaigns for Dior as she has already appeared topless wearing just a black headband when promoting the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance.
This time out Natalie is promoting the new Diorskin Nude cosmetics range. This new cosmetics brand will be available in the UK from 14 September and is described by Dior as giving the wearer a very natural look.
One of the most innovative features of the new range are the lipsticks which are described as not colouring the lips but making them blush for a more natural appearance.
The photos for Natalie’s naked Dior shoot were taken by Italian fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, who is best known for his nude shoots for top fashion mags Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Sorrenti also shot this year’s Pirelli Calendar.
They hope to get cycling gold medallist Victoria Pendleton signed up for the new series very soon. Pendleton won the women’s keirin finals on Friday and is due to retire from cycling after these Olympics. Victoria is certainly not shy of showing off her body as she has already posed nude for GQ magazine so she should have no problem with the revealing Strictly outfits.
Anyone watching the coverage of the Olympics swimming events will not be surprised to hear that Rebecca Adlington is also rumoured to be part of the next Strictly line-up. After her medal winning performances in the pool she seemed to take a big part of her BBC interview talking about how she had always wanted to be involved with Strictly Come Dancing. Anyone cynical out there might think that the deal was probably struck before Rebecca even dipped her toe in the Olympic pool.
Other possible competitors for the next Strictly series include broadcaster Chris Evans, TV presenter Fern Britton, former Westlife singer Nicky Byrne and former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan. It had been thought earlier that Dannii Minogue would take part to upset former lover Simon Cowell but her spokesperson said this week that the Australian singer would “definitely not be taking part” in the show.
Another Olympic name being talked of as a possible competitor is medal-winning gymnast Beth Tweddle. A BBC spokesperson said to The Sun: “The bosses have made it clear their priority is to secure as many London 2012 competitors as possible.
“The Games are by far the biggest event of the year and they want to reflect that by getting some big sporting names on board. The attitude is that if someone has won a gold medal, we should be considering them.”
Now if this is true surely the biggest possible Strictly draw would be the very hot Jessica Ennis. the golden girl of UK sport would certainly ensure very good ratings for the dance show especially during the weeks when she was wearing the skimpy Latin outfits.
