Scarlett Johansson in deal with Dolce & Gabbana?

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on December 15th, 2008


Catwalk Queen‘s Kimberley Foster writes…

The major celebrity ad campaigns look set to continue with rumours that Scarlett Johansson has landed a beauty deal with Dolce & Gabbana.

Style File claims that not only has the newly-wed actress landed the campaign, she has already shot it with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

No word yet on what D&G product Johansson could be representing, although the brand is about to launch a makeup line next month. She has been seen on multiple occasions wearing the designers’ clothes, as well as accompanying Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce to this year’s Met Costume Institute gala.

If true, Scarlett will finish off the celeb campaign trifecta, joining Louis Vuitton’s new star, Madonna and Katie Holmes, the latest face of Miu Miu.

What do you think of this pairing?

Both Blake Lively and Michelle Trachtenberg, co-stars on Gossip Girl, attended the Met Costume Institute Gala last night. Ironically it is fellow castmate Leighton Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, who would be most likely to attend the event in the ficticious New York of the show. (Can’t you just see Blair attending with her mother the designer?)

But back to reality and some real rumors that are spreading – apparently there is no love lost between Trachtenberg and the rest of the cast whom she avoided on the red carpet.

While he may not be snagging any stellar starring roles of late, Joshua Jackson certainly pulled it out as Diane Kruger’s leading man at last night’s Costume Institute Gala. If only Dawson could see him now.

Kruger was wearing a short silver dress with neck detailing by Alberta Ferretti. Likewise, Jennifer Lopez oozed early Hollywood glamour in the one-shouldered blue Alberta Ferretti gown, with bling encrusted neckline and cuff.

We have a feeling Christian Louboutin actually had more than two girls – in terms of who was wearing his footwear. But in terms of dates he graced the red carpet at the Met Costume Institute Gala with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

The girls were the guests of Diane von Furstenberg who created custom gowns for Hollywood’s first twins.
