Memo Pad: White Hot... Coming Out Party... Mila's Moment...

Riccardo Tisci has earned a reputation for unexpected and trend-setting casting for Givenchy’s advertising.

MILA’S MOMENT: Natalie Portman has been quite busy of late, between “Black Swan” and promoting her new Dior gig, so Nylon editor in chief Marvin Jarrett did what any editor would do — he put Mila Kunis, the movie’s second and equally comely star, on his December/January cover. “We’ve always liked her, we were just waiting for her to have the right project,” he said. Kunis herself could barely find time to come to the Thursday night dinner in her honor at Hollywood’s new Redbury hotel. “I can’t even recall when we did the cover shoot since there have been so many photo shoots. And interviews. And plane rides. It’s been nonstop,” said the hoarse actress, who made “Friends With Benefits” right after “Black Swan,” then went straight into promoting the ballet-horror flick. However she did perk up when she walked into the party. “It’s always trippy to walk into a room and be confronted with a life-size cardboard image of yourself, and to have to pose next to it is even weirder.”

As for Nylon, it’s expanding its daily localized e-mail newsletters from New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Austin to other U.S. cities and growing its international print editions, currently in Japan, Korea and Mexico, to include Jakarta this spring. The magazine is also reprising its YouTube partnership for the May Hollywood edition, in which it took over the site’s homepage and tagged every article in the issue to a YouTube video. And The Plasticines, the band under its in-house record label, are releasing a new album next year.
