For this “Tuesday Twosome,” we chose our new favorite modern onscreen couple, Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, from last summer’s box office hit, Friends With Benefits. (There were many other romances we wanted to feature during our Valentine’s Day countdown, but it’s hard to find proper stills of some of our older and foreign favorites! But Friends with Benefits is definitely our absolute favorite modern rom-com!) In this fast-paced, witty, atypical romantic comedy, Kunis plays Jamie Rellis, a New York City headhunter who tracks down a savvy blogger named Dylan Harper, played by Timberlake. As Harper is from Los Angeles and decides to take GQ up on their offer as their new art director, he finds he has only one friend in his new city – Jamie. Kunis and Timberlake make a perfect pair, playing verbal (and later physical) tennis with incredibly quick jokes, comebacks, and undeniable chemistry. (Which is why his supposed engagement to Biel made us very upset that these two weren’t a couple…) Due to the youthfulness of the picture, this dynamic duo is dressed in very fashion-forward business attire. In this scene, Jamie is coming to pick Dylan up from the airport for his initial interview with GQ. Although her silk button-down blouse, pencil skirt, and bun are all correct in the corporate world, Jamie’s lightning bolt necklace by Lizzie Scheck might look a little out-of-place (even though it cost $820 in real life!), but it actually provides some foreshadowing for the film. Timberlake is wearing a look made famous in the mid-1960s by the Rat Pack. The old cads donned fitted suits with skinny ties, and it seems this look is making its full generational trend return. (Wait for our full article on that soon…!) According to costume designer Renee Ehrlich Kalfus, Dylan is “a guy who could have a blog and tell other guys what to do.” For his work wardrobe, Kalfus selected slim-fit pieces from Dior, Thom Brown, and Save Khaki. This chic pair is the perfect couple to feature on February 14th in the year 2012! Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

We here at theSkinnyStiletto realized we really like compiling lists, so we’ve created a new category we’re calling “The Little Black List.” To start off 2012, we’re saying good-bye to 2011 by listing the 10 Best Fashion Moments of the past year. (And no, there will never be a Kardashian on this list…)
In lieu of the birthday of theSkinnyStiletto‘s original fashion icon, our mother, we’ve decided to dedicate our post today to this wonderful woman! A lady never reveals her age, but this one-of-a-kind wonder was a stunner in an era when fashion was severely lacking in style. The 70s had bellbottoms and lots of checkered pants and hippie threads, but our lovely Linda was always aglow in anything from a patterned sundress, to a form-fitting minidress (this is true), or a well-tailored jumper. She is the reason our editors have such varying tastes in their own personal styles as well. Linda is a hardworking and dedicated mother, wife, sister, friend, and educator. If it wasn’t for her fashion advice and guidance early on in our lives, we could’ve been doomed to follow horrible trends and bad taste. Our mother taught us the less-is-more rule back when we began playing dress-up and donning her make-up for recitals (which is anything but subtle) in preschool. Linda’s beautiful olive skin, naturally dark Italian tresses, and killer smile are what she has always been known for, and still is. We are honored to feature her here and hope that other women get to inspire their daughters as well! Happy Birthday Mom!! Check out our favorite It Girl, Mila Kunis (below), who was seen wearing a similar version of Linda’s dress, just recently, in Oscar de la Renta! You know what they say, history, including fashion, always repeats itself.
This picture only makes us wonder how Macaulay Culkin ever left this pint-size stunner “home alone.” Here is Mila Kunis at the New York premiere of her latest film, Friends with Benefits, wearing one sexy Lanvin dress. Paired with satin black pumps and blown-out brunette locks, Kunis certainly looks like a friend we’d like to have around. Just because Natalie Portman won the gold for Black Swan doesn’t mean the understudy can’t have just as much fun! Because if that includes dresses like this, the Marine Corps Ball, yelling in Russian and Justin Timberlake, then we’re so in!
This year’s Oscar ceremony was hosted by two of Hollywood’s hottest young stars and we must admit – the youth of this show were definitely dominating our “Best Dressed” list. Our two favorite gowns were Reese Witherspoon in Armani Privé and Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture, pictured above.
Witherspoon looked very sophisticated in black and white, with a 1960s up-do and Neil Lane diamond and emerald drop earrings. Kunis was just stunning in lavender lace and Neil Lane diamonds, as well. Twenty-year-old Jennifer Lawrence was red-hot in Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Very simple accessories, yet exquisite hair and makeup. Cate Blanchett was daring, as always, but looked absolutely fantastic in lilac Givenchy Haute Couture. Celine Dion was unbelievably pretty in Armani Privé, considering she just had twin boys… And the hostess with the most-ess, Anne Hathaway, looked beautiful in white and crystal-embroidered Couture Givenchy, a scarlet Atelier Vesace gown, and easily the best pumps of the night – Brian Atwood Swarovski-crystal stilettos during her musical number. Overall, theSkinnyStiletto was kind of bored with the other bright colors, sparkly nudes and mermaid style dresses. These gals did it best – and their famous counterparts should mimic their commitment to being adventurous and glamorous, without sacrificing true style – or at least drop the trends everyone else is wearing.
This isn’t Bjork’s swan. Amy Westcott did an absolutely gorgeous job outfitting Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as beautiful ballerinas in Black Swan. (This week theSkinnyStiletto will be featuring the 2010 Oscar nominees for Costume Design. Westcott wasn’t nominated, but we think she should have been…) Our editors admitted they all have a secret love for the combination of black, white, gray and soft pink – the hues most commonly seen in a ballet studio. Westcott did a stunning job, considering she really only used four colors throughout the film. She utilizes white and pink to demonstrate purity and childlike innocence ballet is typically associated with. Westcott uses black to represent the dark side to performance dance – and Nina Sayer’s mind. While the sequined tutus created for the black and white swans made the little girls inside of us want to throw on an old pair of ballet slippers, even the casual outfits throughout the movie made us as jealous as Nina! (Just kidding). Portman got to wear a beautiful ballerina pink pea coat, a Dior chiffon white gown that displays her svelte figure, and even the dance outfits for practice she wore were truly divine. Our editors agreed it was the first time any of them had found feathers to be such an exciting accessory! Westcott worked with Jack Brown and used pieces from Rodarte‘s Fall 2010 collection to create one visually stunning and terrifying film. Considering few can do that through the medium of clothing, theSkinnyStiletto deems Ms. Westcott the “black swan” of this year’s Academy Awards.
