Photographer David Slijper captures actress Natalie Portman in all her relentless beauty for the February issue of Elle UK.

Kudos to Slijper and stylist Sasa Thomann because Portman looks sensational here – the word ‘smoldering’ comes to mind. In fact, many choice words to describe Portman come to mind while browsing the layout, which StyleCrave implores you to check out after the jump.
