A slew of additional A-list attendees have been confirmed for Monday’s annual Costume Institute gala. Diane von Furstenberg has designed custom dresses for Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, who will attend as her guests; Hilary Duff will sit with Allure editor Linda Wells; Sofia Coppola, Karen Elson, Rachel Feinstein, and Helena Christensen are attending with Marc Jacobs; Dolce & Gabbana (Domenico Dolce has already arrived in New York) are dressing Scarlett Johansson and Iman and David Bowie; Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are guests of Donatella Versace; Zoe Kravitz is sitting at the Teen Vogue table; and Lake Bell and Cameron Diaz have been invited by Vogue.
Will Scarlett and Sofia Coppola get photographed together? That would be so awesome! In any case, I cannot wait to see Scarlett out and about again!

From Paste magazine:
Yes, Scarlett Johansson is beautiful in person. It’s not an optical illusion or camera tricks or makeup magic or airbrushing. That’s usually what people want to know when they find out you’ve interviewed her. Guys ask if she’s real. Girls always—without fail, without hesitation—ask what she was wearing. What can I tell you about her that I don’t mention in my June cover story? When answering a question, she’ll look past you into space for the words. But then, without warning, she’ll lock eyes with you mid-sentence, utterly confident in her ideas, even as they take shape.
It seems that Scarlett’s album and the music video have stirred up some controversy online and in the media: people seem to either love or hate it! NME gave the album 8 out of 10 – pretty good! You can read the full review here and check out an excerpt below. Remember that you can always come and voice your opinion on Scarlett’s work on the forum – as long as it is voiced in a respectful manner. We’d love to hear from you!
This is a brilliant album that will no doubt top some ‘best of 2008’ lists, but it’s hard to work out if it’s a one-off or not. Perhaps the answer lies in the one original track, ‘Song For Jo’, which stands out as a result of its sparseness. A lone acoustic guitar strums, as an ambient orchestra plays in the background. It recalls Karen O’s Squeak E Clean collaboration ‘Hello Tomorrow’ and suggests that if Johansson and Sitek collaborated on a second album, similar ghostly magic could happen again. Let’s hope they do.
Here’s a quick little gallery update with a bunch of pretty photos, including new Vicky Cristina Barcelona stills and additional photos of the “Anywhere I Lay My Head” album photoshoot… Stunning! Thanks so much to all of our lovely forum members who contributed to this post!
I’ve updated the gallery with 197 screencaptures from Scarlett’s new music video, “Falling Down”. Hopefully a better quality version will be released sooner or later. For now, enjoy these!

– The Other Boleyn Girl: Last Additions
I come bearing some pretty awesome goodies today, if I so may say myself, heh. I have added some stunning additional outtakes from Scarlett’s Vogue (2007) (very rare!), Allure (2006) and Allure (2005) photoshoots. Massive thanks to Maria for the Allure sets!

Mycah also sent in some clippings from recent magazines. They include coverage of Scarlett’s USO visit and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (nothing directly of Scarlett but still interesting to fans of the movie).
