Mila Kunis is the New Face of Dior

Meg Griffin lands Dior campaign.

Mila Kunis has been named the newest face of Dior. The campaign, shot in New York by Mikael Jansson, is all soft lighting and gentle framing, with a faultless Kunis dressed in refined black Dior and modelling the new Lady Dior handbags.

The career move is yet another parallel with Natalie Portman: Portman has been the the face of Miss Dior Cherie for a year now and the pair, of course, co-starred in 2010's Black Swan. Then came those two separate yet preposterously similar movies based around the concept of a girl and a boy attempting to sex each other AND remain platonic, (No Strings Attached had Portman with Ashton Kutcher; Friends With Benefits had Kunis with Justin Timberlake).

Dior, unsurprisingly, is a house with very good taste in celebrity ambassadors ? Kunis and Portman are as cool as they are beautiful. Meanwhile, Charlize Theron is perennially magnificent and only improves in coolness, daily (see Between Two Ferns, Young Adult).

And if you aren't already sold on Kunis' coolness factor, don't forget she has long-voiced Meg Griffin on Family Guy:

And she played Jackie Burkhart on That 70's Show (it wasn't until a surprisingly engaging performance in the Judd Appatow comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall that Kunis convinced us she could actually act):

No confirmation yet regarding Raf Simons impending takeover at Dior, but our eyes and ears are peeled and perked.
