Vogue January Issue

Natalie Portman graces the cover of Vogue’s January 2011 issue wearing a J. Mendel hand pleated silk chiffon dress.
The magazine recently looked inside the training that the 29-year-old actress went through to prepare for her role in Black Swan.
To lengthen and strengthen her body, Natalie worked eight hours a day, six days a week with Mary Helen Bowers, a former dancer in the New York City ballet.
Mary believes that “you can really transform any body type into one looking like a ballerina: long, lean, sculpted, and strong, but still very elegant.”
Natalie has already been winning awards for her role in the movie. She received the Best Actress award from both the New York and Boston Film Critics Societies!
