The Milla Jovovich Interview With The Blonde & The Brunette – Part I
Milla Jovovich, the multi-talented super model, cover girl extraordinaire, L’Oreal spokesmodel and star of the Resident Evil franchise spoke with The Blonde & The Brunette recently about some of the exciting moments that are happening in her professional life right now. It’s always fun for us to get a glimpse into what happens behind the scenes and we love sharing it with our readers.
B&B: Milla, first, thank you for your time. The Blonde & The Brunette, as well as our readers, appreciate you giving us insights into your work, style and beauty secrets. How would you describe your personal style?
Milla Jovovich: Eclectic, I suppose, and comfort-driven. With the exception of heels, which I love, but sometimes comfort is thrown out the window for the right pair of heels.
B&B: What are the one or two things in your wardrobe that are your “go-to” pieces that always make you feel great?
Milla Jovovich: For the moment, a great pair of denims and jersey tees with a feminine cut.
B&B: Do you have a favorite fashion trend for Spring?
Milla Jovovich: I never really pay attention to trends.
B&B: Let’s switch gears and talk about your special fashion moment on the Academy Awards Red Carpet. Congratulations on making everyone’s Best Dressed list. It’s quite an achievement. You epitomized Hollywood glamour in your magnificent, one-shoulder, vintage white Elie Saab gown. The hand-embroidered embellishment was superb and worked perfectly with your great make-up. Take us behind the scenes and explain the process of how your Oscar look came together. Why this gown? We know you probably saw lots of dresses but how did end up with this choice?
Milla Jovovich: I was looking for something that shimmered. I really wanted to glow and was looking for a gown that was classic with a twist which I believe Elie Saab’s gown captured perfectly.
B&B: Tell us about your hair and make-up decisions?
Milla Jovovich: Again, I wanted to evoke a modern twist on old Hollywood Glamour and I used L’Oreal makeup and we collaborated closely on how to achieve the perfect look for the evening. That’s why we chose to go with a defined lip and a retro, yet modern take, with the hair.
B&B: Let’s talk jewelry. Our readers LOVE jewelry! It was important to balance the gown with the jewelry. What did you love about the choice of Jacob & Co?
Milla Jovovich: That the stones were incredible and that the jewels complimented the gown. The ring I chose was spectacular and the ear rings were simple yet stunning. The diamond cuff was detailed but, again, classic.
We’ll be speaking with Milla again as she reprises her role as Alice in Resident Evil: Retribution set for release on September 12, 2012. You can also follow Milla and her latest projects on her website.

I adore her, one of my favourite actresses. Looking forward to the next interview.
I love Milla <3
I gained 60 with my first!!! I wlduon’t say that I overate I just ate too much sugar and started drinking soda because I couldn’t stand my normal morning coffee and needed a little caffeine or I got withdrawls. The sugar did not agree with me and I packed on 10 lbs each month during months 4-8 and didn’t gain any weight the last month. This time around (I’m 14 1/2 weeks) I gained a few over the holidays and a vacation before I knew I was pregnant which I, of course, was not able to lose. Since then I’ve only gained 3 lbs which I am extremely happy with. Jessica will likely learn her lesson with this pregnancy but if she is happy then everyone should leave her alone. Many women gain more than recommended without even trying. Lucky for Jessica she’ll have personal trainers and nutritionists to get her back to her normal weight once this baby arrives. If she’s like me she’ll try to curb the sugar (which sounds like her major issue) next time around and gain a normal amount. P.S. unless you’re really overweight I don’t think only gaining 10 or so lbs is that healthy either. Our bodies are definitely meant to put on a little bit extra with baby and water and all of that, so 20-25 lbs isn’t a lot it’s the lowest end of the scale for a reason.
Milla, do you think — does the age matters in showbiz?
Like you, I was underwhelmed with Oscars fhiosan this year. I think there were more noteworthy gowns at the Golden Globes. The ones I liked from the Oscars were Gwyneth Paltrow’s, Michelle Williams’ and Jessica Chastain’s. I love the way Nina Garcia described Rooney Mara’s evolving style as Audrey Hepburn goes punk. So apt.
Like I said in my reply on Twitter, it is a common shot and bforee Max Payne, it was done in Ghost In The Machine. The point is that they aren’t trying to capitalize on Max Payne or Ghost In The Machine’s “name”, they are directly trying to reference The Matrix Reloaded. If you went to their marketing/design team right now and asked them why they made that poster that way, they will tell you it was an “homage” to The Matrix Reloaded shot. Dennis
