Mila Kunis is the New Face of Dior — Who Else Has Held the Title?

Mila Kunis is a star with an upward trajectory. The 28-year-old actress has gone from starring on a Fox sitcom to one of America’s sweethearts in the past few years, made all the more ironic by the fact that she was born in former Communist Russia. Then she managed to score herself infinite brownie points by agreeing to go with a young Marine to the Marine Corps Ball last month, and she followed through with the date, along with “Friends With Benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake. What’s not to love about this beautifully talented actress?

Apparently the folks at Dior are in love with her too, since she’s also now the new face of the French couture house founded by Christian Dior. The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star’s new Dior ad campaign will hit billboards and magazine racks later this month. In becoming Dior’s newest celebrity spokesperson, Kunis will take her place among some of Hollywood hottest stars.

Natalie Portman – Natalie was Mila’s co-star in the critically acclaimed drama “Black Swan” and last year she was the face of Dior’s campaign for their new fragrance Cherie. It was her attachment to the company, as a woman of Jewish decent, that helped spark so much controversy when Dior in-house designer John Galliano was allegedly heard making Anti-Semitic slurs while in a bar in February of 2011. Galliano was quickly dismissed by the design house.

Monica Bellucci – The 47-year-old, Italian-born, brunette Goddess and star of “The Passion of the Christ” and the “Matrix: Reloaded” was a model for Dior in 2010 for their line of cosmetics from mascaras to blush and eye shadow, and who wouldn’t want to have looks as stunning as Monica?

Charlize Theron – Dior has a good eye for Oscar winners. They picked up Portman after her win for “Black Swan.” Then in 2004 Dior and Charlize partnered up after she won the Best Actress Academy Award that year for her chilling performance in “Monster.” Theron has since been appearing in ads for fragrances, clothing and even watches for Dior.

Sharon Stone – Though she’s not an Oscar winner, she was nominated in 1996 for her performance in “Casino” opposite Robert De Nero and Joe Pesci. In 2011, Dior listened to their basic instincts and hired the 53-year-old Stone to model for them. Sharon became the spokesperson for their One Essential line of cosmetics.
