Mila Kunis was so impressive in a photo shoot for Dior’s spring/summer 2012 line of handbags, the brand decided to look no further when they wanted someone for their fall line.
Kunis, 28, has been featured on the cover of magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ, but the Dior campaign vaulted her into the ranks of high fashion.
She joins Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law and Charlize Theron, who have all worked for the brand.
She posed for renowned fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti in Los Angeles.

The ads will be featured in the August issue of Elle in Hong Kong’s, followed by Vogue Paris, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar UK in September, according to Dior.
Kunis, who is known for her youthful sexuality, exudes Old World European sophistication in the new campaign, styled by former French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. She shows off the new Miss Dior handbag.
The campaign is designed to reflect a woman who is accustomed to being in the spotlight, according to WWD magazine. “I’m honestly just learning about fashion… In my daily life, I don’t wear the most feminine pieces. But I love to feel feminine when I’m on the red carpet,” she said.
She also said Dior suits her taste. “I always thought what Dior does is so sophisticated, feminine and beautiful,” she explained.
Kunis vaulted to the A-List of young Hollywood actresses with her performance in “Black Swan,” with Natalie Portman. It caught the eye of Dior’s top brass.
“Mila Kunis is a very talented young actress… Her performance in Black Swan was remarkable. She is very gifted,” said Delphine Arnault, the label’s deputy general manager.
She has a slew of films in production and one “Ted,” currently on the big screen. Next year, she will appear in “Tar,” about the life of author C.K. Williams, “Blood Ties,” co-starring Zoe Saldana and Cotillard, and “Oz: The Great and Powerful” with James Franco.
