The Sydney apartment building transformed for a glamorous Dior ad starring Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has been in Australia with her family since September, as she works on the latest Thor movie. 

While in town, the Oscar-winner is also fitting in some work with luxury fashion house Dior. 

The 39-year-old is set to star in a new television advertisement for the brand, which is being filmed at Sydney’s Manar apartments, located in the inner-city suburb of Potts Point.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a crew of about 60 has spent three weeks transforming the luxury apartments into a Parisian style abode for the ad.  

Being brought in are ‘truckloads of fresh flowers’ and ‘vast collection of priceless antiques’ and walls have even been repainted to set the scene.   

Four apartments were used for the ad, including the penthouse, as areas for the production crew, wardrobe team and a ‘chill out space’ for Natalie.

The actress was, ‘dressed in an exquisite Dior haute couture gown resplendent in hand-beaded flowers’ for filming, the paper adds. 

On Wednesday, Natalie was seen on set at the apartment, as she made her way down the steps of the terrace property. 

Also arriving on the set was her body double, a brunette actress who looked almost indistinguishable from the Black Swan star.

Once Natalie was changed, members of the production team used umbrellas to shield the couture gown being worn by the No Strings Attached star. 

The strapless dress appeared to be made of a sheer, dusty pink fabric that was embroidered with flowers.  

Already inside the property was her love interest, a ruggedly handsome man who waited by a window, dressed in a white button-down shirt and black slacks.
