Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Scarlett covers the US issue of Vanity Fair Magazine, looking this stunning!! I’ve added scans of the editorial to our gallery, and hope to add the interview ones soon. Meanwhile, here you have a sneak peek from VF! – click on the cover to see scans!
Scarlett Johansson does not seem the least bit ashamed when discussing her recent nude-photo scandal with Vanity Fair contributing editor Peter Biskind. “I know my best angles,” she says with her trademark insouciance. “They were sent to my husband,” now ex Ryan Reynolds. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno.” She adds saucily, “Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
Scarlett was photographed today in Glasgow (Scotland) on the first day on set of her upcoming project ‘Under The Skin’. She’s wearing a black short hair wig! Such a a different look from what we’re used to! She recently talked about her character:
“In a few weeks I will be shooting in Scotland a sci-fi thriller directed by Jonathan Glazer, ‘Under the Skin’. The plot seems a bit difficult to explain. In fact when you read the script it can be ridiculous. It focuses on an alien who adopts the appearance of a woman and snares human prey to feed her species. Until, at some point, the alien experiments an empathic behaviour that makes her rethink her opinion on human beings.”
Thanks to SJA for the photos and the quote. You can view first pics on set in the gallery!

Scarlett covers last week’s edition of spanish magazine S Moda. Photographed during her trip to Milan to attend Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion show, Scarl looked so glamorous and sexy! There are some new photos and a new interview, unfortunately for some of you it’s in spanish but I translated some of the most interesting quotes:
“In Hollywood, everyone takes care of their image to the last detail. But in my private life, no. I advocate a healthy lifestyle. I don’t like extremes. When I go to a presentation, a gala, or a premiere, I know I’m going to be photographed on the red carpet. Let’s say it’s not a surprise for me. But it terrifies me that they try to take snapshots of my personal life. In any case, being a sex symbol does not represent any extra pressure for me. I consider myself an independent woman. And when I have to go to an event, I simply choose the dresses in which I feel more comfortable and glamorous. Someone will always criticize me by the look I chose. But you can’t allow these types of comments affect you. And so you can’t stop going out as much as people recognize you and try to stop you when you pass by their side.”
“Young people should claim their right to vote ever since they turn 18. It is a right for which our ancestors have fought and were killed. And the mere fact of despising it for me seems irresponsible and disrespectful. It’s absurd not to participate in society and in political life through the ballot box. It is certainly a matter of ignorance.”

In Dolce & Gabbana’s ad campaign for their new Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation and Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick – both hit stores this month – Scarlett Johansson’s striking beauty is amplified by makeup artist Pat McGrath. Here, Scarlett talks about her retro-inspired images.
What did you most enjoy about this latest D&G shoot? How was it different from past shoots for the brand’s beauty collection?
It was like making a little mini movie. Stefano and Domenico had this whole unbelievable story behind the shoot – she lives in Sicily and her husband’s left her and she’s now waiting for her lover. It was all so unbelievably glamorous and Fellini-esque, like they’re making a Bertolucci movie or something. To me that’s fun because it’s a part of playing dress-up.
Did you pick up any application tips or tricks from Pat on set?
Pat does a lot of old school tricks like using the concealer brush around the lips to really highlight the shape of the lip and stuff like that. And she’ll completely finish one eye and then do the other side which, to me, is really interesting because it’s almost like she knows exactly how she wants it to look so she’s able to complete the look on the other side. I don’t know what her theory is on that but it’s brilliant. And I find it does help, when you’re doing eyeliner to totally complete one eye, like, the finishing touch, and then do the other one because then you have a reference, almost.
Do you prefer to play up your eyes, lips or cheekbones? What are you most comfortable applying/doing yourself?
I think it depends on the occasion, but I do think it’s nice to have a pale lip and a smoky eye or perhaps a little flick of eyeliner and a red lip. I like to mix it up depending on what I’m wearing and also what my hair color is!
See more Scarlett in our October issue, on stands now!

Not only the trailer is out, some new photos were released this week too, behind the scenes, stills… And damn, I forgot to post about the movie shooting, as most of the cast members (of course, including Scarlett) were spotted in NY last month filming the last movie scenes.

The first trailer for writer/director Joss Whedon’s The Avengers is now available online. Quick impression: I really like what I see. The plot is simple and to the point: Loki wants to destroy the Earth, and Nick Fury puts a team of superheroes together to stop him. While this may be a “team”, the star of the trailer (and perhaps the movie; we’ll see) is Robert Downey Jr. He gets both the laugh lines and the bad-ass lines. I don’t think anyone else talks except for Loki, Nick Fury, and Captain America. The only thing that’s awful is the music that plays in the second half of the trailer, but that’s no fault of the movie.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, and Cobie Smulders. The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th, 2012.

On monday, Scarlett hosted a fundraiser for the candidate for mayor of New York, Scott Stringer. She was glowing with that Michael Kors look, so simple but so elegant!
The relationship between the two has something very special, Scarl’s grandmother, Dorothy Sloan, worked for the candidate many years ago, and Scarlett’s brother, Hunter, who also attended the event, is working with Scott in his campaign. You can view some pics in our gallery.
