Mila Kunis' LA Times Magazine Cover & Black Swan

I have to admit I never knew much about Mila Kunis, probably because her previous films have mostly been comedies and never really appealed to me, plus I never watched "That 70's Show" (tv series), but ever since seeing her breakthrough performance in "Black Swan" I'm a little obsessed with her. She blew me away with her role as Lily in this film, she's also rocking one red carpet after another this Award Season and now she's gracing the cover of LA Times magazine (shot by photographer Ruven Afanador), looking just heavenly in a beautiful Georges Hobeika dress. She seems to be everywhere at the moment and it'll be interesting to see what film she chooses to do next!

I've actually seen way too many "Black Swan" posts around the blogs lately and because of that I wasn't planning on doing one myself, but after I just found these stunning LA Times magazine images I couldn't resist after all. I'm sure everyone has seen "Black Swan" by now though, but just in case you haven't: check out the trailer below and try to go and see the film asap! Mila obviously has far less screen time in this film than Oscar nominated Natalie Portman, but she definitely made an equally big impression on me.

Here's the official synopsis:

Black Swan follows the story of Nina, a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica, who zealously supports her daughter's professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily, who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
