Scarlett Vs Natalie


It seems that the 'rivalry' between those two beauties keeps on going... Well, there is no actual rivalry, not that I know of, but  in 2008 they both starred in the movie The Other Boleyn Girl , in which they played two sisters that contended for the affection of King Henry VIII - Natalie played Anne and Scarlett played Mary.





And here we are now, four years later, looking at two Fall 2012 Beauty Ad campaigns, those of Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, both promoting their foundations!! What a wicked coincidence, don't you think?



So let's see the similarities:
-- Lying face down
-- Wearing natural makeup
-- Having bare back
-- A peachy pink piece of (silk?) cloth is covering the bottom half of their bodies
-- Lightweight loose locks
-- Looking at you straight in the eyes!

...and the differences:
-- Natalie on a couch vs Scarlett on a bed (?)
-- Nude vs Luminous (Natalie's skin looks matte while Scarlett is covered by light)
-- Natalie on the right vs Scarlett on the left...
-- Dior's product on the left vs Dolce e Gabbana's on the right...

To me, the last two differences are actually similarities! So I guess that the Dolce e Gabbana creative team had the 'Boleyn rivalry' in mind, because otherwise this looks like lack of imagination (oops, I am being mean now... sorry!).

Which one would you choose and would it be because of the girl, the designing house or the ad? I would love to know your thoughts!

Have greatest day!!!
