Earlier this year we learned that Mango spokesmodel Penélope Cruz was being replaced by Scarlett Johansson and today we get to see the first images released from the Mango Fall/Winter 09/10 ad campaign that feature their new spokesmodel … behold:
Ever since Mango first announced that Scarlett Johansson would be replacing Penelope Cruz for their Fall/Winter 2009 ad campaign, we have been dying to see what they had in store for us. And they did not disappoint! The sultry star, who is also the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup line, sheds her ’50s glam for a punky ’80s feel for Mango’s new ads shot by famed photographer Mario Sorrenti in Los Angeles. Showing off her legs in short tight dresses complete with high heels, tousled hair and animal prints, Scarlett has never looked sexier.
Mango claims that their clothes are for the “young, urban woman” and when I think “young” and “urban” OF COURSE I think of Scarlett Johansson … but not really. Yeah … I dunno … she looks pretty in these photos but … Mango? Really? It all looks so … generic. I’m not all that impressed … but mebbe I’m missing something? Thoughts?
