Over the course of their careers, most actresses will log more hours in the makeup chair than in front of the camera. But inquire about their personal beauty habits, and nine out of 10 will cop to little more than a wimpy slick of ChapStick and that old chestnut, “Lots and lots of water.” Scarlett Johansson, on the other hand, swaps makeup tips with a junkie’s enthusiasm (and lingo): eye shadow compacts are “quads”; a favorite lipstick is “creamy, not too slippery, but really opaque”; premieres and awards shows—where most actors play it safe—are the perfect excuse to “switch things up and try something new.” Who better to play a modern Marilyn in ads for Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up? The predictably luxe, high-wattage new collection fairly screams, “ChapStick? Puh-lease.”
First things first: that skin.
I’m 24, so I have the same breakouts as everybody else. I never go to bed with makeup on, even if I come home at 4 a.m. My skin’s sensitive, so I have to use things without fragrance, like Cetaphil. And I clean my makeup brushes once a week. People don’t realize how dirty their sponges and stuff are! Bacteria—that’s what makes you break out. And I never really use moisturizer.
Don’t forget! Scarlett’s movie He’s Just Not That Into You will be on R1 DVD and BluRay on June 2nd. There’s still time to preorder. For those visitors not able to watch a R1 DVD, the R2 version isn’t far behind. According to Amazon UK, it’s scheduled to be released on June 15th. My copy has already been ordered so expect screencaptures on or around the 3rd
You know an actress has a killer brand when clothing and spirits and athletic retailers alike can visualize her lighting up their next ad campaign.
Such is the image Scarlett Johansson has carved out for herself. She’s managed, somehow, to become one of the world’s biggest bombshells without sacrificing her innate indie-ingenue qualities. Guys lust after her — girls identify with her. She’s equally appealing to Vogue and Maxim audiences.
All of which makes her an advertising exec’s dream. Note to pitchmen and pitchwomen everywhere: totally blanking on a concept for your next assignment? Call to mind one of those buzzwords you’re always tossing out — fresh, sexy, edgy — and see if all of them don’t apply to Johansson.
Several Spanish news sites have announced that Scarlett will be replacing Penelope Cruz as the face of Mango for the Fall/Winter 2009/2010 campaign. Mango had this to say about why Scarlett was chosen:
“extraordinary personality, fun, young; she’s Mango’s ideal urban woman, independent and cosmopolitan.”
The launch date for this new campaign has not been announced but I will be adding a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot shortly.
edit: Three MQ behind the scenes photos have been added.

Scarlett and Pete Yorn’s first single from their Break Up album, ‘Relator’, is now available on iTunes, if you want you can buy it here*!
Also the cover of the single has been released and it has a really cool new photo of Scarlett and Pete. I’ll be adding the bigger version of it to the Scarlett-Photos gallery, but for now, enjoy this little preview.
Some more gallery updates for today. I added a bigger version of her new album’s cover, three new gorgeous Anywhere I Lay My Head Promo Photoshoot images, and replaced some low quality photos for HQs. We were also missing pictures from an event that Scarlett attended in 2005, the 7th On Sale Gala, so I uploaded them. She was so lovely wearing a nice Calvin Klein dress.
