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!
Here’s a big Mary Boleyn image update for you to check out. I’ve added a bunch of additional HQ stills, on set images, photoshoot pics and screencaptures of Scarlett’s performance. Big thanks goes out to Laura for the caps and rope for the photoshoots! Please remember that if you haven’t seen the film yet, the images may be spoiler-y.
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).

After a starring role in this spring’s The Other Boleyn Girl, rest assured that this 23-year-old sex symbol won’t be leaving this list anytime soon.
Actress Megan Fox came in at numero uno, Jessicas Biel and Alba at two and three and Elisha Cuthbert at four, just before Scarlett. View Scarlett’s entry here.
