Scarjo, Eva and Freida: ‘Extreme’ Beauties

By: Betsy Waldman / March 3, 2009

Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes and Slumdog Millionaire beauty Freida Pinto all attended the party to launch the Extreme Beauty in Vogue exhibition at the Palazzina della Ragione during Milan Fashion Week last night.

Mendes and hot young thing Pinto looked stunning as usual. But why did some uncaring stylist decide to corpse up Scarjo?

The Telegraph reports that the Extreme Beauty exhibition is being held in conjunction with designers Dolce & Gabbana’s first foray into cosmetics. Johansson is the face of the new makeup line.

The exhibition, which opens to the public on Wednesday, will explore the role of beauty in society, with images from the past 80 years of Vogue.

Vogue editors released a statement in which they explained their definition of a beautiful photograph.

“One where prettiness is less important than a radical view of physical aspiration, where wit is provocative, and where a shocking image is more arresting than a safe photograph,” the statement reads.

Fine. But why does Scarjo look like she hasn’t seen the sun? Ever?
