While there was a lot of focus on Natalie Portman for her magnificent performance in the movie, Black Swan, her co-star, Mila Kunis, is equally as brilliant and well watched by the public – especially in the fashion department.
Mila’s style has certainly evolved since the days of her role as Jackie, the highschool snob, from the television series, “The 70s Show.” Though she is no “ugly duckling” to begin with, this evolved swan certainly outshone during the year 2010.
One thing for sure is that this gal is true to herself when it comes to defining her own style. Let’s reflect back on some of the best outfits Mila has worn in 2010 and how she continues to inspire us to follow her lead.
Self proclaimed “slob,” Mila Kunis surely looks polished during red carpet events and appearances. Attending such events like MET’s Costume Ball to her “Black Swan” movie premieres, Mila keeps it simple yet tasteful with her variations of black and off-white dresses.
Though she has told NYLON Magazine that her “everyday style is sneakers and jeans,” she still carries that same mentality to the red carpets. She keeps it minimalistic and classic with either one to two colours, never more than three when it comes to gowns and dresses. Of course, she also dresses in something so out of the norm, i.e., the middle dress, which disproves that she doesn’t enjoy couture at all.
However, what’s more evident is the confidence she brings with her when attending red carpet events. Her flirty nature yet confident mentality surely puts Mila in a unique style of her own.
Mila Kunis is so well liked that she’s able to land on diverse magazine covers such as GQ, ELLE, and NYLON during the past year. Though she gets dressed by the stylists from the magazines, you could still recognize the boyish yet edgy Mila in the photographs.
Mila’s appearances in magazines and photoshoots provide readers an engaging concept – she’s able to pull off such a collected photoshoot without compromising her own style. She can be considered the epitome of a confident woman without needing flamboyant clothes to define her.
Through street snaps, we truly get a glimpse of Mila’s sensible style. Staying away from bold colours, Mila stays true to herself by rocking dark colours, flowy silouhettes, a large hobo/messenger bag, and yes, dark nail polish.
While running errands or even eating at a fancy restaurant, Mila does not shy away from wearing androgynous looks. It’s truly evident that she is a woman who prefers comfort over flamboyancy, and that is very hard for many to pull off confidently.
Cop Mila’s Look!
If you’re interested in getting Mila’s look, you will need the essential colour: black. Here are a few key items to look for when you go shopping for the “Mila Look.”
For a more dressed up attire, you can get this Topshop bodycon dress for $78.00 to show your sexy side without the risk of exposing your ‘goods.’ The added sheer sleeves provide support to the dress for those who may be too thin to wear a tube dress like Mila’s.
Another key item is the crossbody or messenger bag like this one by Kipling for $58.00. For a girl who likes to dress in “sneakers and jeans,” a crossbody is certainly one of the must-have items to have around. Not only does it provide practicality and convenience, the crossbody embodies minimalism and comfort, two fundamentals of achieving the “Mila Look.”
To complete the look, add a pop of black nail polish colour like this one, for $14.00. Though it’s a bit pricey for a nail polish, you can be rest assured that this brand is free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (the three most toxic ingredients found in some nail polishes). In addition, many swear that this brand gives you a streak-free look!
From the small screen to the silver screen, Mila Kunis has certainly earned her way to becoming one of our century’s “IT” girls. Like an ugly duckling transforming to a beautiful swan, Mila’s style has gone from drab to total fab throughout these years. As you can see, Chictopians, while you may think you need to dress in “extreme” clothing to get noticed, we can learn a bit from Mila. By exuding confidence and posh, one could be wearing a trash bag and still be getting compliments.
