MORE THAN LIP SERVICE: Proceeds from the sale of Rouge Dior’s Nude Grège lipstick, which was chosen by Natalie Portman, will go to Free the Children foundation, she revealed during a press conference in Paris. The actress — who is the face of Diorskin Nude foundation, Rouge Dior Nude lipstick and Miss Dior fragrance — is an ambassador for Free the Children, set up to help liberate children from poverty and exploitation. She recently initiated a project called Power of a Girl to create a girls’ secondary school in Kisaruni, Kenya. Portman explained that the Grège lip shade’s corresponding shade number — 169 — holds special meaning. “Six is the month that my whole family was born in — everyone was born in June. We’re all June babies. Nine is a magic number, and one is my son — his name is one in Hebrew, Aleph,” she said.
