Mila Kunis the new face of Dior

Published

She stormed the red carpet in a dizzying array of designer gowns last year, so it's little surprise that luxury French label Christian Dior has recruited Mila Kunis as its latest representive.

Mila, 28, secured the covetable contract for spring/summer 2012 in a nod to her flourishing movie career and will appear in the forthcoming Miss Dior handbag campaign.

"I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with Dior," the Oscar-nominated actress said of her appointment. "The brand is iconic in so many ways. It defines fashion, elegance and sophistication."

"Mila Kunis is a very talented young actress; she embodies the true modern woman," said Delphine Arnault, Dior’s deputy general manager. "Her performance in Black Swan was remarkable. She is very gifted. We are looking forward to a long relationship with her."

Mila's Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman is also on-board at the label, as the face of its Miss Dior Cherie fragrance.

Other famous faces to have endorsed the brand in the past include Oscar-winning stars Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron.
