Tim Walker shoots Scarlett Johansson for Moet & Chandon

Scarlett Johansson shot by Tim Walker for Moet & Chandon spring/summer 2011 campaign

Moët & Chandon have revealed a gorgeous new set of ads shot by one of my favourite fashion photographers ever, Tim Walker.

Walker has shot probably shot about 1/3 of all my favourite photoshoots ever, and it probably also helps that Scarlett is probably one of my biggest girl crushes, but I was struck by the delicate, whimsical beauty of these images.

The images depict Scarlett in the utterly sumptuous surroundings of Trianon, a gorgeous estate built by Jean-Rémy’s Moët in the early 1800s, in the heart of the champagne estate in Epernay, France.

I couldn’t help but blog about the campaign when I saw the top photograph, in which Scarlett is poised in an egg-shell blue ballgown balancing delicately atop a pine stepladder with her blonde hair tumbling around her face in elegant waves, surrounded by tourettes of sparkling champagne flutes and rocaille interiors.

I especially love the way the light hits the ash tones in her hair, making it look almost silver. It reminds me of Kirsten Dunst in the opening scenes of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.

For me, it simply screams elegance. It seeps out of the photograph. Scarlett looks positively ethereal – and not to mention about 18.

The campaign is supposed to highlight “a return to the immutable elegance and glamour that are inherent to both Moët and Chandon and Scarlett,” and while that is obviously a piece of marketing mumble that I’d ordinarily disregard, it is ridiculously fitting in this instance.
