Scarlett Johansson has frequently been compared to the iconic blonde bombshell so it is perhaps no surprise that in the advert, 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 & Gabbana.
On picking Scarlett for their brand new cosmetics range, Stefano Gabbana, one half of the design pair, said, Scarlett is sure of herself. Shes a beautiful girl, but shes 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 mothers handbags the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.
The new images of Scarlett are still under wraps, but all will be revealed when the products hit stores in March.
