When it comes to Natalie Portman’s new Dior campaign, the eyes have it! For the label’s brand new Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara, Portman bats her lengthy lashes to the tune of Desire’s “Under Your Spell.” (Fun fact: the song was also featured in Dior’s spring 2012 Haute Couture show, as well as the Ryan Gosling movie Drive.)
