So take a cue from Helzberg and history this month and be the girl with the pearl earrings who just happens to be in on the best secret in town.
She acts, she models, she ‘sings’…now the effervescent Scarlett Johansson can add “First Face of Champagne” to her glittering resume.
Last night London’s finest stepped out at the famous Blue Sky studio to celebrate Moet & Chandon’s “Tribute to Cinema” event, where they unveiled the first celebrity ambassador to the world of bubbly libations.
Tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.
“Moet and the movies both tell compelling stories and share authentic emotions with the world,” explained the divine Miss Scarlett.
“I am honored to have been chosen as their ambassador and to make history with the brand, as the first celebrity face of champagne!”
The lady of the hour arrived looking VERY brunette in a lacy little black dress and stunning S-shaped diamond earrings. British celebs like Thandie Newton and Joseph Fiennes (where have you been?) made a red carpet appearance, and model Eva Herzigova dazzled in a diamond choker and a strapless red Dolce & Gabbana puff dress from their Spring 2009 collection.
Moet will launch an international advertising campaign starring Johansson, which was shot by renowned photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The campaign will include print, outdoor and online advertising, featuring Moet and Scarlett as icons of celebration and reinforcing the brand as the champagne of cinema.
So you’re an ‘icon of celebration’. You’re drop-dead gorgeous. Ryan Reynolds is your husband. You can hand-pick your starring roles. AND you get a lifetime supply of Moet?
Pass the bubbly. I’m getting depressed.
The premiere of the highly anticipated chick flick He’s Just Not that Into You starring Jennifer Aniston took place last night in Los Angeles, and, Jen, I have to say it. I’m just not that into your pants suit.
Why oh why does one of the hottest stars on the planet have to disappoint me so with this boring fashion display? For a girls’ night out with Courtney or a John Mayer concert, sure, the pants suit could be a cool “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan” look. But for the premier of the biggest chick flick since Sex and the City? C’mon! We need our fashion fix from the girl next door. And it doesn’t come in the guise of a (snore) pants suit no matter how much cleavage you show, Jen, or boring gold pendant necklaces you layer.
In fact, despite the star wattage on the red carpet from the likes of Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Connelly (looking both skeletal and sequined) – no one really hit the ball out of the park on this red carpet. Let’s hope this fashion showing is not as lackluster as what promises to be a pretty funny film.
Drew Barrymore continued her ‘almost but not quite’ red carpet showing in a Lanvin dress with an awkward length but lovely pony-tailed hair, make up and diamond clusters. From the neck up, we’re a go.
And a newly brunette Scarlett J. wore a strapless Oscar de la Renta bed spread from what I can gather, yet her orange gemstone earrings and ruby right hand ring accessorized the look well.
Orange worked a bit better on Big Love’s Ginnifer Goodwin, whose flower statement necklace won the night in my book, but her mini Bottega Venetta dress didn’t photograph well, and the strappy sandal silhouette didn’t quite work.
Quick side bar: Will that strappy gladiator pump look just get buried already in the fashion graveyard along with Crocs and Ugg Boots? And pants suits at high profile premiers? Please?
He’s Just Not that Into You opens nationwide on Friday.
A glittering three-carat diamond ring was the only evidence of Hollywood screen queen, Scarlett Johansson’s plans to marry hunky actor, Ryan Reynolds. Rarely have we spotted the two together – the pair takes great pains to keep their relationship out of the press. A tall order these days.
It comes as no surprise, then, that the Associated Press reports the happy couple secretly tied the knot this weekend. The two reportedly wed in an intimate ceremony outside Vancouver, British Columbia in Reynolds’s native Canada on Saturday. According to Us Weekly, the wedding took place at a gorgeous resort, and guests included Scarlett’s mother Melanie Sloan, and her brother Adrian Johansson.
The couple began dating in February 2007 and announced their engagement in May 2008. Johansson’s icey diamond rock made a stunning debut soon after at the Met Costume Ball, where she was escorted by none other than fashion kings, Dolce and Gabbana.
Men everywhere are sure to go through a period of mourning now that the gorgeous A-lister is officially off the market. Not the least of which is director, Woody Allen, who makes no apologies for worshipping the ground she walks on. Then again, he’s never been one to follow the rules when it comes to infatuation.
Our congrats to the happy couple!
Diamonds, sapphires, gold, gowns, Scarlett, Penelope…is there such a thing as too much beauty? The red carpet literally beamed this week at the LA premiere of Woody Allen’s latest film, Vicky Christina Barcelona, as the two gorgeous A-listers gave photogs the answer to their collective dreams. You gotta hand it to Woody – he sure knows how to pick ‘em. The film, shot in (you guessed it) Barcelona, is one of a few Woody Allen flicks to be filmed outside of his native New York, and Oscar is already buzzing.
The ladies dazzled in a picture of contrasts. Scarlett in a long, red Monique Lhuillier gown and a Sonia Boyahian statement necklace that sparkled in a series of gold chains and lockets. (Ms. Boyahian is a friend of the star’s, who also designed her engagement ring to hunky actor, Ryan Reynolds. We’ll be keeping our eye on her). Penelope’s long, dark locks were perfectly complemented by a classic, black Herve Leroux gown and Chopard diamond and sapphire gems.
As if there wasn’t enough eye candy, Ms. Cruz’s current love interest, Oscar-winner and dreamboat, Javier Bardem is ALSO in the cast. Oi! It’s just too much. The press was prohibited from asking them about their relationship on the junket, but the Jewelry Insider hears that wedding bells are in their future. Maybe they can do a double ceremony with Scarlett and Ryan? We mere mortals can only take so much.
