V Magazine #80 Winter 2012, delivers one of our all time favorite Scarlett Johansson covers, for which the actress teamed up with the talented photographer Jean Paul Goude.
”Is it us or was 2012 quite formidable? With its bailouts, elections, upturns and downturns, fallen superstars and financial strain, the past year was one for the books—though we know that all this change and revolution, as the saying goes, can sometimes be a good thing.
Standing their ground at the center of it all were some seriously strong-willed women deserving commemoration in this modest space. They are among the truly brave, challenging suppressive governments at the risk of their own lives: we’re looking at you, Aung San Suu Kyi, Pussy Riot, and Malala Yousufzai. These peaceful warriors are an inspiration for this issue of V, dedicated to Girl Power. How better to bolster the good in the world than to invest in the female forces that make it go round?” vmagazine.com
