We’ve been gushing over this fab video starring Scarlett Johansson spilling the beans about working on the new ads for Dolce & Gabbana’s new makeup collection.
In the footage the very charming Miss Johansson reveals her own beauty preferences; “When I do red-carpet events, I always try to be inspired by Old Hollywood glamour, whether that’s Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall,” she confesses, “so I like to take a lot of looks, especially from that period, but also keep it modern and fresh.” – Although we think we won’t be the only ones to notice more than a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe in the clip.
She also sweetly praises the team on the shoot. Dolce & Gabbana being Dolce & Gabbana, they don’t do anything by halves – they’ve only used world famous makeup artist Pat McGrath – “[she] keeps everyone hysterical on set” –
And hairstylist Oribe – “a master, of course, and his finger are like styling tools”, and king of campaign photography Solve Sundsbo – “[he is] just absolutely sweet and couldn’t make me feel more comfortable. ”
Aaah – the old team back together (they all worked on last season’s campaign as well). In the past she’s represented Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein as well as Moet et Chandon champagne and currently she balances her Dolce & Gabbana work with being the poster girl for Spanish brand MANGO.
Phew! If anyone seems to be bucking the trend for models to take back the bulk of the campaign work from celebrities, it’s her.
And the designers have obviously got a special place in their hearts for the ingénue, as they even named a lipstick after her –
“One of the things that we shot for the new collection is a red lipstick”. She murmured. “When we were putting it on I said, ‘This is a gorgeous colour, what’s it called?’ And it turns out that it’s actually called Scarlett, which is very charming, for me.”
