I loved the Kate Moss editorial "Performance" in the April 2006 issue of W, but was it really necessary for Drew Barrymore and Katherine Heigl to attempt her famous hairstyle on the red carpet? It just aged them and made them appear horribly dated. And who thought it was such a good idea for Lindsay Lohan to recreate "The Last Sitting" for New York Magazine (and to design a line of leggings named 6126, for Monroe's birthday)? Madonna and Nicole Kidman have gotten a good run out of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend," and Anna Nicole Smith's Guess ads practically exhausted our Monroe fascination in the 90s. And now Scarlett Johansson is starring as a Marilyn replica in the new campaign for D&G Cosmetics. Is anyone else underwhelmed?
I mean, it's pretty, but it's been done. Throw in the D&G/Giorgio Armani drama, Johansson's unnecessary album of Tom Waits covers, and my exhaustion of celebrities mistaking "looks like she's on Percocet" for "sultry" (Doesn't anyone pay attention to Tyra Banks? Dead eyes are the enemy!), and I just couldn't care less about the advertising images from D&G's cosmetics line. You bore me, Domenico and Stefano. And I grow weary of your posturing, Scarlett.
And I'm pretty sure Marilyn Monroe wouldn't have been caught dead in this lipstick.
