Natalie Portman looked stunning during a shoot on the beach in Spain on Wednesday.
The Oscar-winning actress, 42, modeled a sheer, flowing red dress with a plunging neckline as she frolicked barefoot in the sand while shooting a new campaign for Dior.
While surrounded by production crew and filming, the Black Swan star — who looked downcast as she stepped out without her wedding in Paris two days before — ran along the shore.
At one point, Portman had jumped into the water for the shoot and emerged to wrap herself up in a white robe.
For the shoot, she looked radiant as she rocked a minimal makeup look and messy beach waves.

During the shoot, she was seen beaming widely as she ran along the beach and splashed around in the water.
Amid her busy schedule, Portman has been facing problems in her 11-year marriage to Benjamin Millepied due to cheating allegations.
Last month, it was reported that the French producer, 46, had an alleged affair with climate change activist Camille Étienne and, as a result, the pair are speculated to be headed for separation.
Since then, both Portman and Millepied have been spotted without their wedding rings as they continue to co-parent their two children.
The longtime couple share son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, six.
Earlier this month, they reunited in the French capital and were spotted taking a stroll with their two kids.
The pair looked tense but appeared to be putting on a united front amid swirling rumors about their marriage woes.
Back in June, a French outlet called Voici shared an explosive report that claimed Benjamin had an affair with a 25-year-old climate activist named Camille Étienne.

‘Her biggest priority is protecting her children and their privacy,’ she added.
The pair first met on set of Black Swan in 2019 and immediately Portman knew he was ‘the person’ for her.
