I tried so hard to go around this cover! I really did! You know I dislike Scarlett Johansson. Her overpraised beauty and sexyness make me think there’s too much ink, to many bites of information already pouring down about her, that I should go radio silent and let others write Scarlett love letters!
Well, wanting to write about Anna Selezneva’s boy/girl pictorial has brought me the inevitable: talking about Scarlett’s cover. (the story continues after the jump! Don’t miss the gallery with all the pictures with Scarlett from Vogue Paris April 2009!)
Her new haircut has people talking, psychologists and stylists analyzing whether brunettes/redheads will now take the lead on seduction power. If blondes will no longer be the overexposed Hollywood-ish expression of sensuality. I don’t mind the rush, I simply think it’s just a hairdo and Scarlett is just another one of Hollywood’s starlets!
And what she’s doing on a Vogue Paris cover, is beyond my immediate understanding! (though I love seeing a normal-sized woman on the cover of any Vogue!) Was there an anti-Marilyn campaign in France (/worldwide) I was unaware of? Or an anti-Scarlett-like Marilyn campaign? (on a side note, is there something specific in the French press making all-Vogue-articles so sugar sweet I feel sticky just by reading the scans?) (photos via tfs)
