NEW YORK – With award season still under way, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley are exchanging ballgowns for birthday suits.

Under the artful eye of photographer Annie Leibovitz, the starlets posed nude for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine's yearly Hollywood issue, to be released Wednesday.

Fashion superstarTom Ford also appears on the cover photo, though he stuck with a more traditional suit -- one of black fabric.

Ford, the issue's guest art director, said he hadn't planned on becoming part of his own project, but he stepped in when "Wedding Crashers" star Rachel McAdams, 29, backed out.

"She did want to do it, and then when she was on the set I think she felt uncomfortable, and I didn't want to make anybody feel uncomfortable" Ford said Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Other Hollywood stars weren't difficult to persuade, Ford said.

"A lot of women actually, a couple of men, too, wanted to take their clothes off," he said. "These are such beautiful people, beautiful women, and who doesn't want to see a bit of them."

Angelina Jolie also got naked for the Hollywood issue, posing in a bathtub. Another shot depicts a fully clothed George Clooney as a director filming a large cast of women wearing skin-tone underwear.

For the cover photo, Knightley, 20, was photographed sitting sideways, with legs and arms carefully placed. The 21-year-old Johansson, draped over Ford's leg, is somewhat more exposed -- readers who open the fold-out cover will see her bare buttocks.

Knightley is currently nominated for a best actress Oscar for her performance in "Pride & Prejudice." Johansson co-starred this year in Woody Allen's "Match Point."

Keira Knightley & Scarlett Johansson vie for ‘My Fair Lady’ role

A very lucky few of the current crop of young Hollywood actors and actresses are often compared favorably to the screen gods and goddesses of Hollywood’s golden age. For me, I always think of Cate Blanchett as so enigmatic, she’s someone like Greta Garbo or Marlene Dietrich. David Boreanaz has always seemed like a young James Garner. Charlize Theron gives off a Veronica Lake and/or Eva Marie Saint vibe. Chris Noth definitely has some Robert Mitchum qualities. As for Angelina Jolie, I always think of Ava Gardner.

Unfortunately, most of today’s actresses are aiming for either Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe. That’s not a good thing. While I adore Audrey and Marilyn, who will be the next Ingrid Bergman? The next Susan Hayward? The next Barbara Stanwyck? The next Deborah Kerr? Or, for goodness sake, the next Bette Davis? It just shows a lack of imagination on the part of Hollywood as a whole, and actresses specifically, that most of them are trying to fit into those two archetypes, Audrey or Marilyn. I only see Audrey in two of today’s actresses – Keira Knightley and Audrey Tautou, both of them slight, gamine brunettes with a certain watchable quality. Scarlett Johansson… well, she aims for Marilyn most of the time, I think, but she falls flat.

Sorry to go off on that tangent. It seems that My Fair Lady is being remade (big mistake) and the producers are trying to find the best actress to take over the Eliza Doolittle part made famous by Julie Andrews (on the stage) and Audrey Hepburn (in the film). Allegedly, the producers have it down to two actresses – Scarlett and Keira. Oh, brother:

KEIRA Knightley will go head-to-head with Scarlett Johansson for the lead role in the upcoming remake of My Fair Lady.

The 24-year-old – who originally auditioned for the part in 2006 and begun singing lessons – was thought to have the part of Eliza Doolittle in the bag, but sources close to the project say Scarlett is now also a contender.

The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star has already showcased her vocal abilities on a debut album released last year and made such an impression she caught the attention of Lord Lloyd-Webber who approached her about playing Maria in West End production of The Sound of Music.

True story – Audrey Hepburn trained and trained to be able to sing her part, but in the end, her voice was mixed with Marni Nixon’s (the famous soprano), much to Audrey’s horror. So it’s not like producers back then were even that concerned as to which actress could actually sing, so why is it a big deal now? Here’s a thought – why not recognize My Fair Lady as a classic that shouldn’t be touched, and cast Keira and Scarlett in something entirely new?
