A Ravishing Retro Natalie Portman Strips on the Silver Screen

Having been deemed by the New York Times as one of 2010’s 15 most definitive film stars, Natalie Portman strips as part of the magazine’s celebratory cinematic project.

Embodying the retro 1940s role of Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake, Natalie Portman strips out of a silky black gown in this video, gradually removing her jewels, her gloves and her blond wig as well. Fourteen other movie stars are also adopting iconic personas for film shorts and photo shoots that will appear after Natalie’s preview.
