New York – She's acted alongside Penelope Cruz in Woody Allen's "Vicky Christina Barcelona," and now, Scarlett Johansson follows in Cruz's footsteps as the next face of Spanish retailer Mango. Johansson will soon be in an advertising spread near you as part of Mango's fall/winter 2009 campaign.
The successful young actress, whose critically-acclaimed roles in "Lost in Translation," "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and "Match Point" have solidified her place among the ranks of the top American film stars, was chosen to represent Mango for "embodying the ideal Mango woman: chic, independent and cosmopolitan...Johansson exudes a confident demeanor while remaining youthful and playful," the company said in a statement.
For four seasons now, Cruz starred in the Mango campaigns and she also co-designed several special collections for the brand with her sister Monica. However, said Mango, the duo won't be designing anything this season.
And will Johansson try her hand at designing? No plans as of yet, says Mango, but it's always a possibility in the future.
