Vanity Fair's 2017 Hollywood Issue features some all time favorite A-list women which include Emma Stone, Dakota, Elle Fanning, and Janelle Monáe. But the most eye-striking picture in the magazine would be of Natalie Portman flaunting her baby bump.
The actress was seen poses with her loose material covering her body, but her pregnant belly. The actress is now expecting her second child with husband, Benjamin Millepied who is a French dancer and choreographer.
It's reminiscent of an iconic picture of Demi Moore that appeared in Vanity Fair's August 1991 issue. Maybe it was coincidental or on purpose. The photographer for the two actresses, Annie Leibovitz, was the same who photographed Demi back in 1991. Demi Moore was posed totally bare for the front cover and by using just her hands, the actress hid her striking body. She was also shot in an Isaac Mizrahi green satin robe and a pair of satin sapphire pumps, her belly more coyly exposed for the 1991 issue.
In the 2017 cover, Natalie Portman is facing in the opposite direction, but the positions of their hands and directions of their gazes are almost identical. But the more recent photo was all about Portman (and possibly her little one), said Vanity Fair fashion and style director Jessica Diehl. "It was about capturing Natalie at her most radiant.”
Natalie first was seen showing off her baby bump at the Venice Film Festival. Natalie was then seen striking a pose for the shutterbugs where the actress was seen wearing a figure hugging floor length off shoulder gown. Whilst a train that billowed behind her gave the dress an almost bridal feel.
