Bringing the Screen to Life: Friends With Benefits

Named Esquire Magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2012, Mila Kunis has no trouble turning heads. But when paired with resident Hollywood hunk Justin Timberlake for the movie Friends With Benefits, the film becomes one that’s impossible to ignore.

The movie tells the story of Jamie, a New York headhunter who tries to sign Los Angeles native Dylan as her client. He takes the job and their relationship quickly moves from one purely of friendship to friends with benefits. With each carrying their own past relationship baggage, they swear to remain just friends. But, inevitably, emotions get involved and the pair finds themselves grappling with what their relationship truly means.


Jamie, played by Mila Kunis, grew up in New York and exudes the sassy, Empire State attitude and style. Her workday ensembles are sleek, fitted and always paired with black stiletto pumps, while her casual wear is both comfortable and chic.


This particular ensemble reflects her casual style as she takes a stroll through Central Park with Dylan, played by Justin Timberlake. Her outfit compliments her figure, with a pair of pumps and skinny jeans giving her an extra bit of height and presence. Combined with a cute, mini-floral printed blouse and a dark green tote, Jamie’s ensemble is perfect for going out and about on a balmy spring day. A simple, long necklace and set of gold bangles add a tasteful finishing touch.

While we all can’t take a casual, midday stroll through Central Park (I wish!), this look is also perfect for sauntering down State Street or going to class. This floral blouse from Delia’s ($15) looks effortless when paired with a pair of dark blue, super skinny jeans like these from Abercrombie & Fitch ($39). Add an extra feminie touch with pale pink, faux suede pumps like these from Forever 21 ($35), or perhaps a pair of like-colored flats or sandals, along with some gold bangles ($11, Forever21) and a simple necklace ($25, TopShop). A tote bag like this one by Rosetti from Kohl’s ($48) polishes off the ensemble and, as a bonus, allows you to carry all of your books to and from class in style.
