During the initial stages of the photoshoot, actress Johansson was seen wearing a stunning bustier designed by Agent Provocateur, which was carefully handpicked by creative director Paul Cavaco. In order to add some humor to the atmosphere, Cavaco made a light-hearted comment that this time around, he had brought clothes for her, unlike a previous photoshoot where he nearly left her topless for a cover in November 2006. Johansson joined in on the laughter and added that Cavaco had specifically requested for her to be in her underwear, which was just another ordinary day on set with hairstylist Garren.
Johansson reveals that while she always dreamed of getting married and starting a family, she did not have any specific expectations about what that would look like. Her marriage to actor Ryan Reynolds was not something she had planned out in detail, but rather something that happened naturally. When asked about how they met, Johansson prefers to keep it private, saying that it’s their own story and nobody else’s business.
Garren created a feminine and Bardot-inspired hairdo for Johansson on March 9th. He applied a volumizing spray to her damp hair, blow-dried it, and rolled it up in hot rollers. Once the rollers were removed, he brushed out the curls and teased the crown to add volume. Johansson was thrilled with how her hair looked and couldn’t believe it was all hers. She thought it would be ideal for any holiday party.
Stephanie Marais, a professional makeup artist, gave Scarlett a contemporary makeover with a classic 50s vibe. To add some color to Scarlett’s fair complexion, Marais applied a combination of peachy-pink blush and bronzer to the cheeks. For one of the shots, Marais used black liquid liner and shimmery bronze eyeshadow, while for another, she opted for dark brown shadow in the crease and taupe on the entire lid. In both cases, Marais finished off the look with black mascara and nude gloss.
Johansson is set to appear in the comic-book adaptation “The Spirit” this month, directed by Frank Miller. Interestingly, she wasn’t initially included in the cast but a role was created for her after a three-hour lunch with Miller. Singer Katy Perry once cited Johansson’s lips as inspiration for her song “I Kissed a Girl.” Regarding her work with Woody Allen, Johansson has been cast in four of his latest films but doesn’t see herself as his “muse.” In addition to acting, Johansson has shown versatility in singing and directing. Last summer, she released her album “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” featuring covers of Tom Waits songs, and made her directorial debut in February as part of the “New York, I Love You” project. Johansson has been lauded by critics since her early career for her ability to bring emotional depth to her roles. She is also known for her professionalism and has never missed a day of work.
