I’ve added some nice shots of Scarlett attending various public events a few years back. She’s pictured with various cool celebrities, including Anne Hathaway, Rosario Dawson, Tara Subkoff and Alan Cumming. Click here to view all new additions.
We have a brand new theme up at the gallery! It was created by the lovely and talented Mycah of Purple Haze Inc. The source for the photos used is the recent Seventeen photoshoot. If you prefer the darker previous theme over this more summery one, you can still choose it from the drop-down menu on the bottom of the page or by clicking here.
Also, an announcement of sorts. I have received a lot of lovely gallery contributions recently but unfortunately I’ve been too busy to reply to all of the emails or add the photos here because of my new job. Please bear with me and I’ll get to it with better time.
Scarlett is featured on the cover of several Scandinavian magazines this month, including Sweden’s edition of Glamour magazine. They have re-used the Vogue photoshoot, which is always a pleasure to look at. Thanks to Maria of Penelope Fan, we now have scans of it.
• Scarlett Johansson by Brandon Hurst (Artnik)
I first wrote about this unofficial biography about a year ago. It looks like it has finally been published after some delay. Check out Amazon.co.uk to order your copy.
• Scarlett Johansson: Portrait of a Rising Star by Chris Roberts (Carlton Books)
This biography, also unofficial, will be released September 3, 2007 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Check out the pretty cover on the right. Here is its description:
Born in 1985 in New York, young Scarlett Marie Johansson has already achieved a cinematic career of stellar proportion, swiftly becoming an icon to both genders. Ubiquitous as the face of Calvin Klein, L’Oreal and Reebok, and described as the new Marilyn Monroe by Vogue magazine, she’s also proved her mettle as a quality thespian, starring in movies as diverse as literary, intelligent Woody Allen features, gung-ho action romps like Michael Bay’s The Island, and of course, alternative, hip fare like the film which made her name known the world over, Sofia Coppola’s much-lauded Lost in Translation. Searching for the essence of her luminous star quality, this book takes a critical look at her work, and traces her transformation from talented child actress to Hollywood icon.
I’ve added a new style poll regarding Scarlett’s red carpet looks so far this year. Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite outfit.
Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson could be making her way to Linlithgow… if a bid by West Lothian Council succeeds. It was announced at the Cannes Film Festival this week that the top actress has been signed to play Mary, Queen of Scots â€” the tragic monarch who was born at Linlithgow Palace.
The new movie is set to become one of the most significant historical films about Scotland since Braveheart.
And, keen to get a slice of the big-budget Hollywood epic, the council is planning to invite the production company to film at the birthplace of Mary Stuart.
For her sequel as the face of another Louis Vuitton campaign [third time, actually], Scarlett Johansson played a role with which she’s extremely familiar: movie star. Evoking at turns Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly, Johansson displays voluptuous glamour in the color-drenched fall spots, slated to break in August fashion magazines.
“In this one, she’s much more recognizable,” said Antoine Arnault, Vuitton’s communications director, who allowed that the actress is not always immediately identifiable in the current spring ads in her role as the French-coquette-on-a-swing.
Nevertheless, Arnault dubbed the current campaign a success. He noted that Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs “adores” Johansson and based his fall-winter collection for the house around her character in Girl With a Pearl Earring, the 2003 feature film about a peasant girl who becomes the model for 17th-century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer’s most famous work.
The fall campaign, lensed by Vuitton regulars Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, plays up the painterly colors of the ready-to-wear. “It’s probably one of the most beautiful campaigns Mert and Marcus have ever shot,” Arnault said. “It’s a very iconic campaign.”
