Are Scarlett Johansson’s new Dolce & Gabbana ads overly-photoshopped?

Scarlett Johansson, who is the face of Dolce & Gabbana makeup, poses in these new makeup ads – and it’s leaving many to wonder how photoshopped they really are!

Between dealing with post-divorce fallout and trying out every beauty look under the sun, Scarlett Johansson still has time to pose for Dolce & Gabbana Makeup ads.

As the brand’s spokesmodel since early 2009, Scarlett just debuted her latest campaign promoting Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2011 “Sweet Temptations” line of cosmetics. And the results are… iffy.

Scarlett is undeniably a beautiful actress and always looks lovely in the ads. But we’ve noticed time and again how over-Photoshopped she appears in the hands of Dolce & Gabbana’s retouchers — in last August’s ads, a black-lipsticked Scarlett was virtually unrecognizable and her summer ads from April made her look like a china doll (albeit, a very pretty china doll).

What do you think? Are they too photoshopped?

Megan Fox reveals why she’s having her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed!

Megan Fox has a body full of tattoos, which she usually has no problem showing off. But recently she decided to get rid of one of her most famous tatoos: her inner forearm tattoo of Marilyn Monroe’s face (see below).

“I’m removing it,” she told Italian Magazine Amica. “It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

She’s also trying to gain some weight – after she admits she got too skinny on an altered diet.

“For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee,” Fox revealed. “But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training with my trainer Harvey Pasternak.”

Sharks Are Friends, Not Food!‏

 

Did you know that the growing demand for shark fin soup and other shark products has fueled a decline in shark populations by over 90% in just a few decades? For some, the thought of sharks is scary but the truth is that they are necessary in maintaining healthy marine ecosystems around the world and their survival is hanging in the balance.

LUSH has teamed up with one of the leading marine conservation organizations, Shark Savers to bring an end to shark fining altogether. Launching today is LUSH’s limited edition Shark Fin Soap ($5.95) with 100% of the proceeds going to Shark Savers’ work to raise awareness for shark conservation. This ocean inspired soap has a decorative paper fin, is packed with seaweed and sea salt and will be available at www.lushusa.com and at LUSH stores across North America while supplies last. Help in the fight to protect our ocean’s sharks by putting down shark fin soup and picking up shark fin soap instead.

 

Alice Newstead a former LUSH employee feels so strongly she gets hooked for campaign!

Shoppers on Regents Street in central London likely got more than they bargained for this afternoon. In a dramatic illustration of how sharks are caught and killed for their fins, Alice Newstead, performance artist and former employee of LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, voluntarily had her skin pierced with actual de-barbed shark hooks and hung suspended from the ceiling in the window of one of LUSH’s busiest shops for all to see.

As a crowd gathered to watch in horror, Newstead said, “I am doing this because the demand for shark fin soup and other shark products is wiping out the shark population.” Unlike the 100 million sharks who are brutally slaughtered each year for their fins, Newstead commented, “I will be left with scars, but the wounds will heal.”
