Soles4Souls, Inc., the international shoe charity dedicated to providing free footwear to people in need, has announced its celebrity support of Barefoot Week. The annual series of events (June 1 – 7) features the charity distributing thousands of shoes to people in need during the week.
Scarlett, who has donated 2,000 pairs of new shoes in the past, says:
“If you can’t dig deep in your pockets, then dig in your closet! Americans can make a huge difference with Soles4Souls by donating shoes. Soles4Souls gives away a pair of shoes every 13 seconds in over 120 countries, with over 55 percent donated to fellow Americans.”
Scans from the May 2009 issue of Marie Claire (Brazil) have been added to the gallery, Scarlett looks really sexy. Thank you to Mariana for scanning these for us!

As you know Scarlett made a trip to Rwanda last year to collaborate with the (RED) project, she visited some AIDS clinics, memorials for the Rwanda genocide, and important institutions from the country. I’ve added some pics of her trip to the gallery, because we just had one, and here* you can see a new video with images of her visiting a children AIDS’ hospital, she looked super tender talking to them and holding a baby.

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.
