We’ve been Natalie Portman fans since first seeing her at age 13 in Léon – her subtle performance suggested an actress far advanced of her young age. And seeing her recently in Black Swan, for which she won an Oscar and which has now firmly cemented her career, she remains one of our favourites. With impeccable bone structure and captivating eyes, her performance was very emotional, personal and powerful. This captivation extends to editorials, with many photographers stepping up to capture her beauty.
