Everybody was shocked when award-winning actress Natalie Portman announced to everyone last December 2010 that she is engaged to boyfriend Benjamin Millepied who is a dancer and is expecting her first child with him. Now, Millepied has a new career to pursue. He is the new face of an unrevealed name of Yves Saint Laurent men’s fragrance.
He was seen moving his way through Manhattan just this week while shooting ads for the said scent. The ad will debut in September 2011.
The fragrance will be third in line of the YSL scents which includes L’Homme (Halle Berry‘s beau Olivier Martinez fronts for that one) and La Nuit de L’Homme. The endorsement contract mirrors that of Millepied;s betrothed; Portman was the recent face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume.
According to some people, Millepied is an inspired choice. This is a smart move by YSL-hiring one but getting two names linked in their new fragrance.
The 33-year old Millepied, originally born in France, is a principal dancer at the prestigious New York City Ballet. He may not be that known in the celebrity world, but he is a sure A-lister in the world of ballet gained through his years of experience as a dancer and choreographer.
The couple met while filming Black Swan. Benjamin was the choreographer of the film. But then, he found himself playing as the dance partner of Portman and Kunis with only six lines performed in the movie. Benjamin said he was “blown away” by Natalie and that’s how it all started.
