Scarlett Johansson for Dolce & Gabbana Makeup
“The Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up muse, Scarlett Johansson, represents the latest Collections, illustrating their many mercurial moods to reflect their devastatingly seductive power. The images present a more seductive, yet vulnerable side of Scarlett as she gazes into the mirror, with the natural grace of her gesture revealing another layer of her simmering sensuality. Scarlett’s facial expression is enigmatic yet explicit, delicate yet strong.”
For whatever reasons these things happen, the entertainment industry suddenly rediscovered Marilyn and there are not one, but two biopics in the works, starring Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams, respectively. We’re only so-so about that casting. We think Watts is a terrible choice but Williams could make it interesting. One of the names thrown about back before these movies were cast was Scarlett’s and we weren’t all that crazy about that idea, either. We like Scarlett as an actress, but her savvy, New York kid, deep-voiced persona comes through on almost every performance and we just didn’t think she could pull of Marilyn’s version of breathless kitten. We also didn’t think she had the looks for it. Body, sure. Face? Not really. Too structurally different.
And now we have living proof. She’s working a very Marilyn-esque look here and while we think she looks DELICIOUS, we think the point has been made that she can’t be made to look like her. If anything, she looks more like late ’80s Madonna here. Still, it’s a great campaign and a great look for her. We think she should go for this kind of look a little more. She seems to have aged out of her young starlet looks but never really found a way to look sophisticated and womanly. Well Scarlett, here you go. Rip these out of a magazine and have every hair and makeup person who goes near your head study them.
Of course we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the egregious Photoshopping here. Talking about Photoshop every time a celebrity sits down for a photographer has become a little too ubiquitous for our tastes, akin to walking outside, pointing up, and saying smugly, “See that? Clouds. I knew it.” Still, it’s a bit too obvious on this one. She has no pores and her breasts are weirdly flat and fuzzy in that last picture.
