Look, I love Mila Kunis. I loved her on That 70s Show, then I loved her in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, then I loved her in Black Swan, and I loved her in everything in between. I think she’s just wonderful. I would want to be her friend.
One of the things that I love about this lady is that sometimes, she just doesn’t give a f-ck. She’ll go out in sweatpants and no makeup, and she doesn’t care. She doesn’t put on a pound of makeup just because some stranger is probably going to want to take pictures of her. She just doesn’t care.
But, as always, one lady’s treasure can be another lady’s trash. And it looks like for a lot of people, Mila Kunis’ sweatpants make her trash:
Sexiest? More like schlubbiest woman alive.
Sweatpants-loving Mila Kunis is a guy’s girl – and she’s got the wardrobe to prove it.
Seemingly eager to shed her Sexiest Woman Alive title – Esquire Magazine crowned the Ukrainian-born beauty last November – Kunis is rarely spotted these days in anything except dumpy, frumpy gym wear.
Apparently at chez Kunis, it’s laundry day everyday.
From morning coffee runs with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher to canoodling in the West Village, walking the dog or lunch in L.A., Kunis and Kutcher are a match made in casual dressing hell.
At first, it was cute to watch them smooching in Central Park in matching T-shirts or see her run out in the morning without painting on a full face of makeup and cavorting Kardashian-style for the paparazzi. But now it’s time to shed the elastic waistband and invest in a hairbrush.
She’s a Golden Globe-nominated actress for “Black Swan,” not a member of Justin Bieber’s entourage.
“I love her, and though I can certainly relate to her craving for comfort, there really is a better way to do it,” says Mary Kate Steinmiller, senior fashion market editor at Teen Vogue.
Unlike other Hollywood A-listers Gwen Stefani, Jessica Chastain and Jessica Alba with street style to match their flawless red-carpet looks, Kunis insists on dressing like an unwashed teenage boy.
Hot mama Gwen Stefani instantly adds glamour to everything from a plain tank top and jeans to an oversized cape with a bold red lip and oversized shades. Jessica Alba, the master of casual chic, is constantly photographed around L.A. in comfy T-shirts and jeans accessoried with a designer handbag, colorful scarf, cute flats and denim jacket. And Jessica Chastain, currently in “The Heiress” turns Broadway into her personal runway everytime she shows up for a show in fitted coats, statement-making shoes and impeccable accessories.
To keep it casual but still chic, Teen Vogue’s Steinmiller suggests that Kunis try silk pajama-style pants by Piamita, stretchy denim leggings by Citizens of Humanity or cashmere Juicy Couture track pants in a bold color.
“I will never utter the word ‘jegging,’” she says about the superstretchy Citizen of Humanity jeans. “I know the loose freedom of a sweatpant hardly seems comparable to a legging jean, but these feel like wearing nothing.”
As for that we-just-rolled-out-of-bed-because-we-are-so-in-love hair that she can’t seem to wash away, it’s time to start throwing it up into a messy top knot, quick side braid or pick up some dry shampoo to soak up some of that greasy mane.
I don’t know, guys. I think it’s fun to talk about fashion, but in terms of what people chose to wear to events, not really what people chose to wear when they’re going about their lives. Especially when it’s something as boring as sweatpants and a hoodie. It’s not even fun to talk about, and it’s not like we haven’t all gone through a period where we just didn’t feel like putting that much effort into going outside.
But I need to take a moment to cosign on the suggestion of jeggings. Jeggings forever.
