I look like a street, punky girl,” Scarlett Johansson tells me. “It’s that edgy Debbie-Harry- meets-Marianne-Faithfull look.”
Certainly the new images of Johansson for the autumn/winter 2009 Mango campaign, which hits the streets today, are a world away from the Scarlett that we’ve become used to.
Gone is the preppie, all-American girl of Lost in Translation, or the noir heroine of The Black Dahlia.
Johansson shot the ad campaign for the Spanish high-street fashion store with über-cool photographer Mario Sorrenti.
Hair styled in a tousled blonde bob, we see Scarlett wearing leather and leopardskin, super-skinny jeans and a black bra.
You wouldn’t mess with that girl. “She’s not a waif,” says Johansson proudly.
She takes over as the face of Mango from Penelope Cruz (who has fronted it for the past two years) and jokes she already knew a lot about the clothes from working with Cruz on Woody Allen’s Vicky Christina Barcelona.
I’ve replaced three of the behind the scenes photos from Scarlett’s Mango photoshoot with HQ versions plus added one new one. Also added are a few more photos from the upcoming Fall campaign.
A couple days ago, I mentioned that there were some rumors floating around the internet that Scarlett would be at this year’s Comic-Con. Well, the official site has the full schedule listed and the way I read it, Scarlett will not be attending.
4:00-5:00 Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment: Iron Man 2— Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel superhero Iron Man. Directed by Jon Favreau, Iron Man 2 stars Robert Downey Jr. Joining Downey in the cast are Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Jon Favreau, Clark Gregg, John Slattery, Mickey Rourke, and Samuel L. Jackson.
To me, that is nothing more than a cast list and not a list of who will be attending the presentation. I could be wrong though.
Scarlett made a brief appearance in Madrid today at the photocall for the official launch of her Mango campaign. She wore a shiny blue blouse and a high-waisted black pencil skirt all designed by Mango. She is still sporting her brunette locks and I think she looks fantastic!

Sheri from lashortsfest.com sent me a follow-up email with a few more details about Scarlett’s upcoming appearance. This is an excellent opportunity for those of you in the Los Angeles area.
Some more info on this. Tickets to opening night are open to the public.
The theater only holds 230 so there will be close proximity to the celebs
and they are participating in Q&A after. Ticket also includes an
afterparty which we hope the celebs will attend.
Tickets are available through our site www.lashortsfest.com for $30. Buy a
ticket and be part of Scarlett’s world premiere screening of her short
These Vagabond Shoes.
There are also some rumors floating around the web that Scarlett could be a part of the Iron Man 2 panel at this year’s Comic-Con. I will keep you all posted as I learn more.
It seems like it’s been forever since we had a gallery update. I’m still sorting and organizing a few more goodies I have on my computer but I wanted to get these up. I’ve added HQ versions of Scarlett at the press conference for Vicky Cristina Barcelona that was held back in August of last year. Expect more new photo additions soon.

Austin360 posted a short interview with Pete Yorn. It’s mostly about his current album Back and Forth but he did have a comment about his upcoming album with Scarlett and he hints at a possible tour (of sorts).
Is it fair to say your writing is more direct on the new songs? In the past, I’d maybe probably protect myself more by being vague. There was a conscious decision to make this more simple and straightforward.
Did that spill over into writing your upcoming album (‘Break Up’) with Scarlett (Johansson)? That was more like a flurry. I was trying to figure out how to get some female perspective in my songs.
Will you two tour together when that album’s out this fall? We’ll do a couple events. I think we’ll go to Europe as well.
