Engaged mom-to-be Natalie Portman, who is the newest face of French fashion house Christian Dior, has gone topless for its new Miss Dior Cherie perfume ad.

 

The sexy Black Swan actress has been photographed wearing nothing but a black headband, reports the Daily Mail.

 

She was unveiled the new face of Christian Dior in December. Sofia Coppola will direct screen ads for her campaign.

 

Portman, expecting her first child with choreographer Benjamin Millepied, was snapped by photographer Tim Walker for the ad campaign, due to appear in March.

 

The 29-year-old philanthropist has even got the iconic label to support some of her charitable causes.

 

'I had an aversion to selling things. And then I realised both that there could be a company that I would be proud to represent, and also that they would really support the things I believe in,' she said.

 

'It's really wonderful to have this established, elegant brand willing to do great non-profit work,' she added.

Keira Knightley has broken up with her boyfriend of five years, Rupert Friend.

 

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 25, was left heartbroken even though the decision to end the relationship was mutual.

 

'Yes, they have broken up,' the Sun quoted Keira's father Will Knightley as saying.

 

'They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She's focused on her work,' her father added.

 

The British actress met Friend in 2005 on a screen adaptation of classic story Pride and Prejudice.

 

But the pressure of being constantly in the public eye finally took its toll on the couple.

 

Cracks started to appear in mid-December when Friend arrived without the actress at the London Coliseum gala production of The Nutcracker. He took his mother Caroline instead.

 

The couple split after a heart-to-heart before Christmas.

 

But a pal said: 'Rupert hates the idea of being followed and photographed. Keira partially had to accept it because of her rising profile.

 

'It affected the harmony in the relationship. The pressure took its toll and both decided they should go their separate ways. They will remain life-long friends,' the pal added.

Additional cash would come from her array of product endorsements and merchandise deals that include arrangements with VirginMobile and Polaroid.

Actor John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston are showing off their new bundle of joy!

 

The couple, who posed with the newborn on the cover of Hello! magazine, have called their baby son Benjamin, who is nearly two months old, a ''miracle''.

 

'He's given the house a renewed spirit and purpose. He's brought us a new beginning,' the Daily Mail quoted Travolta as telling the magazine.

 

The Wild Hogs co-star said that their new baby has helped them heal from the devastating loss of their eldest son Jett, who died in January 2009 following a seizure.

 

'For us it's been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms,' he said.

 

48-year-old Preston delivered Benjamin, who weighed just over 8lbs, in a Florida hospital in November last year.
