“There is a sexiness you can turn on and turn off. And then there’s a sexiness that’s just there.”
The personal-shopping department at Selfridges is packed with people sipping San Pellegrino and whispering into their Blackberrys. This is exciting. Where is she? Where’s Scarlett Johansson? For it is she we are here to meet. It could be such a disappointment were she not so well turned out.
She really does look exactly the way a movie star should. She is in a suite, on a sofa, dressed top to toe in Dolce & Gabbana — well, it is their new fragrance, Rose The One, she’s plugging. She is all poise and pleasantries, and says “Nice to meet you” with a smile that gives nothing away except an exceptional and seamless professionalism.
We get straight down to business. She tells me about being the face of the new fragrance: “I’ve always loved rose oils. I think scents are a way of making memories. Ideally, fragrances become a signature for different moments in our lives, and you can match the scent to how you’re feeling.” On being the face of Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, she says: “It’s a celebration of femininity.”
Back in July, I posted screencaptures and a link for the very quick glimpse of what was then thought to be the video for ‘Relator’. We’ve since found out that is not the case as it’s a promo video shot to advertise the album. And while it does feature some footage from the ‘Relator’ video, it mostly shows footage of the photoshoot for the album. A longer version of this video has been released and you can view it after the cut. Screencaptures will be coming soon.
“That’s none of your business, honey.”
“Wasn’t that awesome,” laughs Scarlett Johansson as she flops into a chair. She’s talking about the 6500 fans who she just had eating out of her hands. They’d packed into an overcrowded hall in San Diego to watch a few minutes of footage from her coming film, Iron Man 2.
Many were sceptical about the 24-year-old taking on the iconic role of the seductive Russian spy, Black Widow. Not any more. From the look on the young men’s faces in the audience, they’ll be rushing to the multiplexes next year to see more of Johansson in that spray-on black leather outfit. Suddenly they understood what Woody Allen meant when he described her as “sexually overwhelming”.
You can’t talk about Johansson without talking about sex. She oozes it from every pore. Even today in a summery Dolce & Gabbana cream sleeveless dress (and black Christian Louboutin heels) she can’t hide the va-va-voom factor. Luckily, she has a sense of humour about it.
Scarlett Johansson is definitely Dolce & Gabbana’s muse these days. The famous actress has recently become the face of their cosmetics products, and now she also stars in the campaign presenting D&G’s new perfume.
Rose The One is the sister fragrance to The One. After three years on the market, The One has evolved with new hints of red grape, mandarin, lychee, peony and vanilla.
The perfume is to go on sale in September.

New York Magazine just posted a nice interview with Scarlett and Pete Yorn about their upcoming album ‘Break Up’. The piece also included two MQ photos from the promotional photoshoot which I have added to the gallery.
One muted winter afternoon in 2006, Pete Yorn awoke from a sleeplike trance convinced that recording a duets album with Scarlett Johansson would save him. Unlike most people who have this thought, Yorn actually had the actress’s number. The two were acquainted through Yorn’s brother, an entertainment lawyer Johansson has worked with since she was a teenager. So Yorn texted her. Johansson hadn’t yet recorded or even announced her own 2008 album, the slight but likable Anywhere I Lay My Head, a collection of Tom Waits covers. But it turned out to be an opportune moment for both.
The full length video for ‘Relator’, the first single off of Scarlett’s upcoming album of duets with Pete Yorn, has debuted today at Yahoo music. You can click here to view it or just stay on the site and view it after the cut. I’ll be attempting to search out a better quality version before making screencaps but I’m hoping to have something up later today.
Worstpreviews has posted a video containing the Iron Man 2 teaser that was played at this year’s Comic Con. Scarlett is featured in it, but very briefly – blink and you might miss a couple of the shots. I have no idea how long this will be up before they’re asked to take it down so go watch it now. You can view it here.
