After their failed contract with Nathalie Portman ( alias The Swan Princess according to Vulture’ list (I’m addicted)), remember she broke her contract with Dior right after the big John Galliano’s scandal last year? The perfume brand comes back with Mila Kunis the Swan Queen alternate just like in the movie. Miss Dior’ marketing team hasn’t work too hard to find this one (» _ “Nathalie wants to quit? Well ask the other black swan brunette… what’s her name again? Im sure that’s exactly how it went).

Thanks to the newVulture 100 most valuable stars  list lets make a little fun portrait of our two beloved ‘Black-Swaners’:

#35 Nathalie Portman “The Swan Princess “

[…] She[Nathalie]  exhibited qualities that would come to define her: an innocent beauty, a fragile temperament hidden behind a tough exterior, and an intelligence beyond her years.

An Oscar nomination for Closer helped, but in 2010, Portman hit a career high with ballet psycho-thriller Black Swan, opposite BFF Mila Kunis, for which she won an Academy Award (she also took home a husband in Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied, with whom she has since had her first child, Aleph Portman-Millepied).

Portman’s high gossip value can be attributed to her early success, as well as her trendsetting red-carpet looks and seemingly effortless beauty.


#56 Mila Kunis The Tv Girl Made good

Ukranian-born starlet Mila Kunis make the precarious transition from small-screen Girl Next Door (That ‘70s Show) to silver-screen Girl Atop Natalie Portman (Black Swan). Kunis’s exotic-yet-approachable good looks (GQ once dubbed her “the sexiest woman alive”) and comfort level with gross-out humor make the 28-year-old actress a solid box-office draw for male audiences. She’s also the longtime voice of Family Guy’s Meg.

[…] She becomes a women’s magazine staple, while critics warmed to Kunis after she played Natalie Portman’s rival in Black Swan.

The tabloids had little interest in Kunis after her eight-year relationship with child star Macaulay Culkin ended in 2010, but now that she’s rumored to have taken up with Ashton Kutcher, she’s earning new gossip buzz.
