l’anti marilyn.

I never really liked Scarlett Johansson.

Until this cover. 

Controversial about Paris Vogue’s introduction of an American celebrity on it’s usual model-clad cover,

But I think she looks positively  s t u n n i n g .

(Then again, I may be biased since I consider anything done under Carine to be perfection).

I love the idea of an  a n t i t h e s i s  to Marilyn Monroe.

Dark, seductive, sultry, mysterious.

A bit like the nocturnal version of Marilyn, if you will.

The one who goes clubbing and dresses in lace cardigans but beneath that,

She wears a corset. In  b l a c k , of course.

S m o k e y  eyes,  n u d e  lips, and a  w i l d  mane of hair. The dominatrix.

A job well done, Carine.

    what a gorgeous editorial! she may not be a parisian model, but she looks beautiful & it’s definitely a european editorial– so edgy & dark!

    I have to admit, this is the best that I’ve seen her. Good find! xo

    I can’t believe you aren’t a Scarlett fan, she is gorgeous!

    Fabulous! I love it! I’ve always liked Scarley Johansson after she did Lost in Translation, she totally won me over after that one:))

    Love these inspiration posts!

    l o l i totally agree- everything done under Carine i s perfection! and i’m def. not Scarlett’s biggest fan either- she always plays the “other girl” but this cover is very “anti-marilyn” and gorgeous!!

    Great editorial!
    I really love your blog,

    I prefer her with dark hair and make up in these pictures! I don’t know, it’s more natural and glamour, than the too much blond and stuffs thing…

  10. 28 April 2009 8:58 am

    i absolutely love the 2nd photo!!

    Hello La C. I think it’s an incredibly beautiful cover. She’s so stunning.

  12. 28 April 2009 9:49 am

    She is so beautiful and I love her new hair color! 🙂


  13. 28 April 2009 9:59 am

    wow she look absolutelly gorgeous!

  14. 28 April 2009 11:09 am

    Is that really Scarlett Johansson?
    That hair colour looks good on her.

  15. 28 April 2009 11:38 am

    i love her here, the brown hair is so pretty on her

  16. 28 April 2009 12:36 pm

    I’m not even really a Scarlett Johansson fan, but WOW, these are absolutely stunning!! The cover shot is sooo beautifully seductive 🙂

  17. 28 April 2009 1:22 pm

    well written, i completely agree this is absolutely amazing, however i’ve been loving scarlett for years. she’s a classic beauty, but i do prefer her with blonde suits her better in my opinion.

  18. 28 April 2009 1:35 pm

    Beautiful photos.

  19. 28 April 2009 1:46 pm

    I am not a huge fan of her either. But she peaked my interest when it was known she was Woody Allen’s muse. And now a D&G muse… and now on Paris Vogue?
    C’est magnifique.

    My mouth is full of water!!=D

    I saw that cover when I was watching Carine doing the CNN interview. It’s definitely different from the models covers but it doesn’t feel like I’m looking at a cookie-cutter celebrity shot that most magazines do. It’s very well-done!

  22. 28 April 2009 3:15 pm

    I completely agree. I have heard people say that they dislike this editorial, but I couldn’t adore it more. Scarlett manages to look provocative yet demure and classy all at the same time. I could truly see her with a veiled hat perched upon her wild waves, and a long cigarette held tightly between two gloved fingers. It’s all very…French.

    I know this has nothing to do with Scarlet (who looks amazing as a red head!) but I just wanted to let you know that because of you I’ve finally caved and picked up a Moleskine…and I’m hooked! I just gave you a thanks on my blog. 🙂

  25. 28 April 2009 4:27 pm

    Did you see Carine´s video on CNN?
    She mention that cover and how scarlet just decided to change the hair color at the last minute and Vogue didn’t know before…

  26. 28 April 2009 4:58 pm

    I’m still not that crazy about scarlett, but these pictures are amazing

  27. 28 April 2009 6:03 pm

    I can’t stop agreeing with every word you have written. She looks so amazing!

  28. 28 April 2009 6:25 pm

    She looks stunning.
