Natalie Portman may not be a model by trade, but if you know us, we have only a few exceptions to our models-on-the-cover notion.

Ms. Portman is one of those exceptions.

The Jerusalem-born American actress is featured in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar in a spread styled by Natasha Royt and shot by J. Mendel.

The colors, the moments captured and the backdrop makes this one Otterlicious shoot.

Take a look at some snaps to see what we mean…

Natalie Portman for the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar is on newsstands now.

Now, in case you are ready for some more Natalie, as we are, she is also the cover girl for Marie Claire UK’s September issue.

What we love most about this feature is the insight we get into the woman that is Natalie Portman, starting with Marie Claire UK’s online teaser, where we learn some fun facts.

“She was first spotted by a Revlon beauty scout at the age of nine in a pizza parlor but decided on acting instead of modeling.”

We knew modeling was there somewhere!

Read more of the teaser online at Marie Claire UK, and be sure to check out the full Natalie Portman interview in Marie Claire UK’s September issue.

Sounds like we have a lot of beach material!
