Scarlett Johansson looks like old-school Courtney Love in new ads

mango 130709

Scarlett Johansson is the new face for clothing line Mango, and today announced her gig with the unveiling of some of the photos they’re using in their ads. She looks sort of like a cross between old school Courtney Love and Nicole Kidman, circa 1994. The hair and outfit is pure Courtney, but there’s something about her features and expressions that really remind me of Kidman. Especially in ad up top. Something about the jaw line and cheek bones I think. It’s hard to place exactly what it is, we’ll settle on “it’s a quality.”

Scarlett Johansson is the new face of Mango. Check out her sultry ads here!

Scarlett isn’t lucky just because she’s starred in many a Woody Allen movie as her breathy, sexy self, or because she nabbed hottie Ryan Reynolds as her husband last year. Nope, this newly-brunette bombshell has what it takes in the fashion world as well.

ScarJo was announced as the new Face of Mango at Santo Mauro Hotel on July 13 in Madrid, Spain, and will be appearing in their ad campaigns.

I’m a huge fan of the ads. Scarlett looks gorgeous, but she’s not entirely stealing the show. I can still believe the purpose is to see the clothes, not just see someone famous. I haven’t been quite as big a fan of hers since she lost a lot of weight – somehow it took away a lot of what made her unique to me. But I can’t deny that she looks absolutely stunning here. She does a good job of showing off a sultry side with a bit of an edge. She also looks a bit like Drew Barrymore in the black and white jeans shot. Gorgeous photos – and Scarlett’s quite the chameleon.

Here are the ads, along with pictures of Scarlett attending a photocall as the new face of Mango held at Santo Mauro Hotel in Madrid today. Images thanks to .

    OMG! YAY!!

    She’s gorgeous in this pics!

    Oh thank god. Her last couple pics were atrocious. I kept thinking “what did you do to yourself ScarJo?”


    But no seriously, she looks great.

  2. Sauronsarmy says:

    Ugh why do they ruin everything with So.Much.Photoshop. I’ve always liked Scarjo I think she looks good.

  3. Wench. says:

    FOR THE LOVE OF VAGINA SHE’S SEXY! Ow, it actually hurts my eyes. Although, gotta say – I was even more obsessed when she was a little bigger.

  4. Jenny says:

    She’s one of the most beautiful actresses nowadays in Hollywood. I just looove the way she looks in these pictures!

  5. BlueSkies says:

    Jaybird, I’ve gotta say, they must have done some kind of surgery or treatment on her jaw and chin. Unless this is just photoshop. She has nice eyes but her nose job isn’t that great. It still looks a little pigish. I’ve never bought that this one is a beauty. Does have a nice rack. Just waiting on Ned’s input. It’s gonna be a doozy.

  6. Bigfish says:

    I was so disappointed with her appearence, with the black hair and the black dress. She looked so starved and emaceated. Now I feel so much relief that, she may return to her old sexy and intellegent self.

  7. Mairead says:

    I’m thinking she’s more looking more Debbie Harryesque in the ads myself.

  8. Ned says:

    She bought a new face, because she barely looks like herself.

    Whether she got another nose job (the last one was way too obvious and sharp for her round face) or “changed” her jaw line, lifted her eyebrows and other features.

    One thing is vert Scarjo.
    She looks very slutty and far from classy as possible.
    Just like her “performances”.

  9. Kaiser says:

    Good call on Debbie Harry, Mairead.

    I’m not loving the face or the hair, but ScarJo’s bodonkadonk looks amazing in that leather (pleather?) skirt.

    Her legs don’t honestly look like that, though.

  10. Bodhi says:

    Massively good call, Mairead!

    ScarJo looks amazing! What a great photo shoot!

  11. Orangejulius says:

    Er, she’s about a million times prettier than Courtney love ever hoped to be and I’m not even a fan – of either of them.

  12. Dani says:

    Very photoshoppy and very wiggy.

  13. coorblimey says:

    There is nothing oldschool Courtney Love about those pictures, Apart from the leopard print coat.

    You don’t know what you’re talking about.

  14. BlueSkies says:

    Deb Harry, you wish! So does she. I believe Madonna is going for this look.

    Harry has her natural nose and cheekbones to the sky. A very Scandinavian look. No such look for Scarlett or Madonna. Try as they may, they just aren’t “white” enough.

  15. sickofit says:

    def a nose job. but she looked better with her original nose. made her look interesting.

  16. Melanie says:

    seriously, when did Courtney Love look that good?

  17. jillie says:

    i dont see courtney love, but i do see sophie dahl.

  18. debbie says:

    Courtney Love never looked that good in her life! You should apologize to Scarlett for even making that connection! :0)

  19. the original kate says:

    courtney love wishes she could look a fraction this good. poor thing.

  20. Dani says:

    All Courtney has to do to look better is put down the syringe, booze, and pill bottle.

  21. Codzilla says:

    “Try as they might, they just aren’t ‘white’ enough.”

    What does that even mean?

  22. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Very hot, airbrushed or not :D

  23. Dorrie says:

    Can’t get behind the idea of these poses being “sexy,” Scarjo or no. She’s down on the floor, back against a wall, looking vulnerable, passive, and/or stoned out of her mind. Looks like a creepy male fantasy of the submissive woman. The black and white photo is the only one where she looks like she might bite back.

  24. Megan says:

    If they ever do do a Kurt Cobain movie, Scarlett’s my pick for the Courtney role.
