This time last year, you probably didn’t know who Benjamin Millepied was. Now the New York City Ballet principal dancer is on his way to becoming a household name.
Though best known as Natalie Portman’s “beautiful love” and baby-daddy, Millepied is the new face of the Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Libre ad campaign. Last year he starred in Club Monaco’s Fall 2010 campaign.
Millepied met Portman in 2009 when he worked as the choreographer for Black Swan. The two fell in love, got engaged and had a baby and ever since Millepied has become increasingly recognizable. And increasingly bankable. Coincidence? Something seems a little fishy to us. – Regan Reid
