Not surprisingly, we’re swooning over the new Miss Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign. It stars the gorgeous Mila Kunis who is fronting the handbag line for her second year in a row. Good on ya Mila! The teaser has a 60’s French film noir feel to it and shows Mila surrounded by photographers being mad a fuss of - so not that different to her real life then. Filmed in black and white, Mila looks proud and in control amongst the pap chaos, looking seductively at the camera.
There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Mila’s look for the campaign but the fact she's been papped out and about with hottie Ashton Kutcher has made her even more of a news story of late (lucky you Mila, we're a bit green-eyed about that). Aside from that juicy goss we have to say we think her and the brand are a match made in beauty heaven - they're both just so chic and subtle and sophisticated. And actually, in a recent interview, Mila spoke about her love for Dior, saying she thought the designs were "very classic, very consistent, really elegant, and really beautiful." Too right girl.
Now Mila’s beauty look for the campaign recalls a 1960’s Audrey glam and the Paris couture house confirmed to us that it was created by renowned make-up artist Tracey Levy, who has worked extensively with Mila in the past (including on That 70’s Show). The basis of the look is a dark and heavy purplely-brown smoky eye, with black liner that extends from the top and bottom lashes to form a contemporary cat-eye. Oh and that strong, lean brow is bang on trend, along with those contoured cheeks and nude glossy lip. We love! But our real obsession is her sexy hair-do - she sports a shoulder length bob-cut with her top layer back-combed, pulled into a Barbarella bouffant (we told you in this week's issue that it’s all the rage) and held back by a large black bow clip. Divine.
Along with this elegant new campaign and Black Swan last year, Mila has danced to the top of her game but she remains very down to earth about the new title. "I appreciate the attention, but I don’t think of myself as particularly attractive," she said, "I do have a pretty sharp sense of humour though and I think that has helped me." It's all going on for Mila: a new campaign, a new beau and a hot new beauty look, everything seems to be going swell in the world of Mila. Watch the video and be enthralled...
