Mila Kunis is joining her Black Swan film mate Natalie Portman as the face of Dior, The self-described jeans-and-tee-shirt type is now fashion icon. Who knew?
Kunis, 28, will rep for the spring 2012 collection. Portman is the face of Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. A-listers Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron have also repped the brand.
“I’m honestly just learning about fashion… In my daily life, I don’t wear the most feminine pieces. But I love to feel feminine when I’m on the red carpet,” the 28-year-old actress told fashion magazine WWD.

Mila Kunis joins a long list of Hollywood sex sirens who have repped for Dior, including Grace Kelly and Liz Taylor.
The signing comes just ahead of the awards season in Hollywood. Mila will be on the red carpet for the Oscars and the Golden Globes more than likely sporting Dior fashions.
Which is ok by her. “I find that Dior is an incredibly grounded house,” she said. “I always thought what Dior does is so sophisticated, feminine and beautiful.”
Mila has moved up in the ranks in Hollywood from a regular cast member on the hit sit-com “That ’70s Show,” to big screen productions. “Black Swan” was a dramatic breakthrough for her and caught the fashion brand’s attention.
“Mila Kunis is a very talented young actress. Her performance in Black Swan was remarkable. She is very gifted,” Dior Deputy General Manager Delphine Arnault said in a statement.
But she still hasn’t abandoned comedy. Kunis also starred in last year’s rom-com “Friends With Benefits,” with Justin Timberlake.
Dior has traditionally aligned itself with A-list actresses going back to Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and Grace Kelly, said Arnault.
“It is thus only natural for the house of Dior to continue to develop a very specific and personal relationship with actresses,” she said.
That puts Mila in some pretty swank company. Check out her photos.
