We have learned that for Scarlett’s campaign for Dolce and Gabbana’s beauty line she will be styled like Marilyn Monroe! I truly can not wait to see this! Ads should begin debuting next month.
Scarlett Johansson has frequently been compared to the iconic blonde bombshell so it is perhaps no surprise that in the advert for the upcoming D&G makeup campaign, shot by Nick Knight protege fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo, Scarlett is styled as the ultimate sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. And dare we say, it’s all so very Dolce and Gabbana.
The 24-year-old actress wears a corset and knickers for her role while lying on silken sheets. Scarlett strikes a Marilyn Monroe pose with her short blonde curls and ruby red lips.
On picking Scarlett for their brand new cosmetics range, Stefano Gabbana, one half of the design pair, said, “Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easy going. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”
He added, describing the range and why the famed fashion duo decided to make the leap into cosmetics, “We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”
The range will include lipsticks scented with rose. “We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”
Dolce & Gabbana will make its long-awaited entry into color cosmetics early next month. The campaign will star Scarlett Johansson. Hopefully we will begin seeing adverts with her then!
On their new makeup collection thay said: “We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”
The move into makeup is seen as a springboard that could transform Dolce.

Va-Va-VOOM! Are all the words that come to mind whilst viewing the breathtaking photoshoot of Scarlett for Harper’s Bazaar February 2009. Miss Johansson looks 100% movie star and ultra glamorous in the Valentine’s Day themed shoot. They’ve also debuted the actual newstand cover (before being the subscriber’s unlike previously noted). This is truly one of my all time favorites – yeah I know we say that a lot, but seriously!
Furthermore the article is in the Press Archive. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“You know, I always try to keep a low profile, which probably makes me the most identifiable person in a crowd, It’s like, There goes that woman in a wig, mustache, and glasses.”
“I’m a major foodie, I love to eat. I make a really mean lasagna. Woody’s like, ‘You’re like an Italian housewife. Where did this come from?'”
“Every actor wants to work on a Western. I would run a brothel, like a madam or something. I’m working with what I’ve got. It’s only so long that people are going to want to see me in a corset, So I might as well do it now.”
Scarlett Johansson is red hot on the February 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar.
In preparation for Valentine’s Day, the 24-year-old actress was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski in a strapless red gown by Oscar de la Renta. (According to Just Jared This is the subscriber cover – on the newsstand cover, she’s standing in front of a big heart wearing Roberto Cavalli.)
I’ve added 84 gorgeous outtakes from Scarlett’s 2008 Cosmopolitian shoot! Remember you must be registered to view these images.
– Photoshoots: Cosmopolitian
LA Times published an article with Scarlett a few days back. She talks about her struggle to keep her personal life private and Cosmopolitian‘s fabrication, in addition to her many projects. Read it here in our press archive.
Talking with her brings to mind a line about another great-looking movie dame, Jessica Rabbit; Scarlett Johansson isn’t bad, she’s just drawn that way. Like Mrs. Rabbit, her ripe looks and a voice like scorched velvet have a strange effect on those around her.
It’s a sad state of affairs when a young actress is notable for not behaving like an idiot, but it must be said that for all her paparazzi appeal, she doesn’t lure it with wildly inappropriate behavior.
“I don’t know when that became a standard for young people.” She adds that she and her friends go out to dine and dance like anyone else, “but we’re all responsible young adults, within reason I suppose, and that should be the norm. I think that is the norm, really, but maybe it’s not just interesting.
