Natalie Portman uses her visibility to style her world with intention and compassion. “I’m trying to use whatever attention is focused on me and divert it to something that really deserves attention.”1

An alliance of shared views with husband, Benjamin Millepied, produced an engagement ring made of recycled platinum and conflict-free diamonds. Before she took on the role of a Miss Dior muse, she made a few simple but uncompromising requests. Would they design a pair of vegan shoes for her to wear in the photo shoot? They did. And more: “They re-made all of my shoes so I can wear Dior shoes without taking lives.”2

We salute Ms. Portman for choosing style plus sustainability. Stella McCartney gowns. Pieces from H & M Conscious Collection. And the buzz? All positive. A vintage Dior gown that turns heads at the Oscars, and a ring that dazzles with something more. Well played, Natalie.
