Scarlett Johansson for Dolce&Gabbana Make Up BTS Campaign Video

Dolce&Gabbana launched its behind-the-scenes video featuring brand ambassador, Scarlett Johansson for the Perfect Mono Intense Cream Eye Color campaign. Perfect Mono is Dolce&Gabbana Make Up’s first ever cream eye color, a unique collection offering both matte and pearl shades, launching this October 2014.

“When we were looking for someone whose eyes embody the innermost essence of the Dolce&Gabbana woman, we could only think of one person: Scarlett. Her eyes can speak even when she does not, evoking intense emotions just by catching your glance. She has the look of a true star.” – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

The campaign was brought to life and shot by photographers Mart & Marcus. The composition and technique plays with emphatic details and oppositions, using bold light and dark contrasts to a gorgeous effect. Set against a black backdrop, dressed in a polka-dot dress, Scarlett is a timeless, modern Marilyn Monroe with sensational and expressive eyes. The inspiration behind the look is intense, mysterious, but at the same time expressive – eyes filled with mischief and innocence. Who better to capture this beauty look than Scarlett.

Can’t wait to see the full campaign and video.
