Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?

Best Dressed: Mila Kunis

She used to date Macaulay Culkin, got her big break as Jackie in That '70s Show and is the voice of the very, em, opinionated Meg Griffin in Family Guy, but chances are you know nothing about Mila Kunis.

All that's set to change this year as the 27-year-old is being lauded for her performance in the much hyped Black Swan, and we're not just talking about that scene between herself and co-star Natalie Portman, boys ...

Even more importantly, she's passed this week's red carpet test with flying colours (unlike the unfortunate Ms Portman), thanks to this sophisticated strapless dress from J Mendel which proves that the gal definitely does glam.

We're impressed and something tells us that Ms Kunis is one to watch.

Worst Dressed: Natalie Portman

We have to admit that we're shocked. Nothing in her past had prepared us to be let down quite so badly. We feel a bit betrayed actually.

We've been championing the seemingly stylish actress during the last year or so, and we really were expecting great things when we heard about her pregnancy.

After all, Ms Portman has an access-all-areas pass to every design house in La-La Land and beyond, and the Oscar buzz around her means that she'll be a fixture at every award ceremony boasting a red carpet. But hopefully not looking quite like this.

Her floor-length dress is a perfect example of how not to work a baby bump. Ill-fitting and shapeless, it's a throwback to the bad old days before yummy mummies-to-be were celebrated. And that neckline ... . Words almost fail us.

Still, we don't want to be too harsh.

Natalie did look fab at last week's People's Choice Awards in a cute, short purple number so we're sure this is just a temporary case of baby brain -- hopefully ...
