Revisiting Moët & Chandon's original advertising campaign that introduced
Scarlett Johansson as the brand's first celebrity ambassador, Walker's new
photographs bring to life the rich heritage and savoir-faire of the world's
leading champagne.

"Moët & Chandon, the most loved champagne since 1743, is a universal
symbol of joie de vivre and success. This new campaign highlights a return to
the immutable elegance and glamour that are inherent to both Moët and
Scarlett" said Moët & Chandon President & CEO Daniel Lalonde.

Shot on occasion of Moët & Chandon's "Tribute to Heritage" celebration in
September 2010, the campaign's three visuals depict Johansson at Trianon, an
impressive residence built by Jean- Rémy's Moët between 1805-1817 on the Moët
& Chandon Estate in Epernay, France. Combining extravagant staging with
romantic motifs, the images reflect Walker's signature style.

In the first image, Johansson holds in hand a bottle of Moët, which she
looks upon with warmth and sensuality, evoking the brand's allure.

In the second image, a time-lapse photograph sequence of five spontaneous
images captures the star's playful smiles and casual gestures, revealing her
extraverted nature.

In the third image, Johansson perches precariously on a wooden ladder in
one of the Trianon salons, above a generous champagne cascade - a grand
gesture invented by Moët, reflecting the brand's characteristic joy of
accomplishment…and accomplishment of joy.

The campaign includes print, outdoor and online advertising.


Recognized for its quality and prestige, Moët & Chandon is the champagne
of cinema. Moët has been the official champagne of the Golden Globes for
almost two decades, and the official champagne of the Oscars(R).
Generations of legendary actors, actresses, producers and directors have
celebrated with Moët & Chandon.
