Prima ballerina: Mila Kunis is en pointe for LA Times Magazine.

She may have played Black Swan’s bad girl but Mila Kunis exudes pure grace—and a little Audrey—in her ballet-inspired photo shoot for the February 6 issue of L.A. Times Magazine.

On the cover, the Golden Globe nominee wears her hair pulled back in a ’60s-style, teased bun, her dramatic eye makeup and pale lips also a nod to the era. The elegant actress looks positively swanlike, revealing her long limbs in Georges Hobeika’s wisp of a white mini with sheer sleeves, scalloped “feathers,” and beaded detail.

Inside the magazine, Kunis ups the chic factor, channeling her inner Hepburn in an ethereal, flowing white gown by Rick Owens, and posing for photographer Ruven Afanador in a vintage Christian Dior dress from 1973’s The Way We Were.

Despite the serious tone of the shoot, Kunis says she prefers to keep things light on camera.

“I love doing comedies," the former That ’70s Show star tells the magazine. “They’re just as hard, if not harder, to make work, compared with a drama. You work 17 hours a day, and you have to try to make things different and funny and relatable onscreen all at the same time.”

Though she’s one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, Kunis currently has no new projects in the works—and she’s completely fine with that.

“I know people say this all the time, but it’s true: I don’t ever want to work for the sake of working,” she says. “I was very lucky to have a show for eight years. Now I can sit back and think about what I want.”

Considering all her recent accolades, we have a feeling she won't stay idle for long.
