We have learned that for Scarlett’s campaign for Dolce and Gabbana’s beauty line she will be styled like Marilyn Monroe! I truly can not wait to see this! Ads should begin debuting next month.
Scarlett Johansson has frequently been compared to the iconic blonde bombshell so it is perhaps no surprise that in the advert for the upcoming D&G makeup campaign, shot by Nick Knight protege fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo, Scarlett is styled as the ultimate sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. And dare we say, it’s all so very Dolce and Gabbana.
The 24-year-old actress wears a corset and knickers for her role while lying on silken sheets. Scarlett strikes a Marilyn Monroe pose with her short blonde curls and ruby red lips.
On picking Scarlett for their brand new cosmetics range, Stefano Gabbana, one half of the design pair, said, “Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easy going. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”
He added, describing the range and why the famed fashion duo decided to make the leap into cosmetics, “We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”
The range will include lipsticks scented with rose. “We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”
