In or Out: Scarlett Johansson in Calvin Klein

Posted on February 09, 2012

From our perspective, Scarlett hasn’t been having an easy time of it lately, style-wise. We figured we’d link to an example or two, but then we realized you might as well read the last half-dozen entries to get the gist of it. She was sporting weirdly unflattering hairstyles and dresses for at least 6 months there and we can’t help thinking it was a divorce-induced period of style dysfunction; one of the those periods of your life all your good friends silently agree to forget and all your not-so-good friends hold over your head for years.

We suppose that makes us good friends to Scar, because we think this is a major step in the right direction. We have some issues, which we will gleefully get to in a moment, but for now, we would like to point out that her hair looks kind of pretty (it’s at least the right shape this time), and that this is a good time to remind her that simple, body conscious silhouettes like this are her very best friends of all. This is a fairly decent example of the kind of low-key, elegant, and somehow savvy sexy she can be devastatingly good at it.

However.

The winged eyeliner, girl. Since we’re now friends, we can tell you that you look like a streetwalker in 1965.  Also, the dress is – and we can’t believe we’re about to say this about something with a Calvin Klein label on it – a bit too complicated for such a simple dress, if that makes any sense. And finally, she’s got the kind of coloring that really begs for more color. This silhouette in practically any color would look even better on her than simple black. Still, a step in the right direction, so we can’t get too upset. Except maybe about the eyeliner.

That’s our take, anyway. If you disagree, we’ll sulk and call you “big face” for the rest of the day, just to annoy you.

IN! She’s looking FIERCE and HOT, jealous bitches!


OUT! Kind of half-assed, if you ask me. Which you did.
