Scarlett gives nod to Marilyn in ad

Scarlett Johansson channels Marilyn Monroe in her new advert for Dolce And Gabbana.

The Avengers actress, who is currently pregnant with her first child, is promoting the brand's new cosmetics line.

A behind-the-scenes video from the campaign shoot shows Scarlett evoking old Hollywood glamour in a series of sequences which see her getting pampered and posing for pictures.

Scarlett, 29, told People: "The concept this time around was just to give a really modern and classic feel and have it be a nod to old Hollywood, but still keeping it really fresh."

The actress is engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac and is now based in France.

"We shot it in Paris, which is really like home to me now, and the more time I spend here, the more at home I feel," she said.

"It was really nice to have everyone on home turf, it was lovely. It was a very easy-breezy day. We have all known each other for a very long time. The shoot was great, sort of like working on a little movie, which was unexpected but really fun, sort of our tribute to Marilyn."
