There are actors who make headlines for every other reason than their profession and there are those who let their talent speak for itself on the silver screen. Natalie Portman is an actress that belongs to the latter category. Although she’s been a part of Hollywood since the mid 90’s, the Israeli-American actress has quietly gone about working her magic in front of the camera.

Natalie has campaigned for various causes including environmental protection and education of the girl child. She has also starred in music videos, superhero franchises as well as demanding roles in movies such as Black Swan, which she went on to win an Oscar and Golden Globe for. And that’s not all! Portman has even made her debut as a director and producer.

In her latest acting venture, she stars as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the former first lady of the United States, in the biographical film Jackie. With the movie release set for 2017, a first look of the film was all over the press. After a dramatic transformation, Natalie looked every bit the first lady. Here’s a quick look decode…

Makeup and Hair

For even coverage with a natural finish, use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation to add a subtle shine to your face. To achieve Jackie’s defined yet natural brows use the Lakmé Black Eyebrow Pencil to fill in the bare portions of your eyebrows.

Lightly dust the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick (Limited Edition) on the apples of your cheeks. The baked blush will deliver a luminous flush of colour that blends naturally. For Jackie’s bold red pout, apply the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick in Red Rush on your lips.

Jacqueline’s voluminous bouffant was a stylish ‘do in the 60’s that signified elegance and class. Start by applying the BedHead by TIGI Small Talk on the crown of your head. Work it into wet hair to thicken, energize and style it. Proceed to blow dry your hair in the opposite direction for additional volume. If your hair is short, brush your ends outwards in a long bob style. For longer length, tie a ribbon along your crown.

Fashion came into its own in the 60s. During that era, Jacqueline was considered a fashion icon and her pink suit with a pillbox hat become synonymous with her style. In the cinematic portrayal of Jackie, Natalie Portman’s fashion statement is a sophisticated red buttoned skirt suit and a few strings of pearls.
