SCARLETT JOHANSSON JOINS MANGO As much as we love Penelope Cruz as the face of MANGO, the Spanish clothing line just announced that Scarlett Johansson will be taking over her place this fall.
MANGO reps said, "[Scarlett's] image will debut for the Fall/Winter 09 campaign, embodying the ideal Mango woman; chic, independent, and cosmopolitan. Johansson exudes a confident demeanor while remaining youthful and playful." With this collaboration, Scarlett Johansson is taking over from her predecessor, Penï¿½lope Cruz, who has been the image of the brand for the last four seasons. Since its beginnings, MANGO has banked on famous faces to feature in its advertising campaigns.
The MANGO ads with Penelope and her little sister Monica have made such an impression on me that I attempted to capture a similar look. With the help of make-up artist Jessica Toro from Ayari Makeovers, we were able to accomplish a smokey eye like Penelope's. Check out our video and tell us if we succeeded in our goal to look like the Oscar award-winning actress. -Mercedes Sanchez
