Scarlett Johansson for Vogue

Posted on April 12, 2012

Poor Scarlett. It seems very few of the Bitter Kittens liked your Versace dress. Those bitches.


Scarlett Johansson featured in the May 2012 issue of Vogue magazine photographed by Mario Testino.


Maybe this will make them love you, girl. We certainly loved it.

Sure, the fashion and styling is a bit obvious (with the notable exception of the shoe on her head), but damn if those ’30s Hollywood styles suit her. Ruffalo looks good in tails, but it would have been nice if they’d switched up his looks a little. Then again, as many charms as Mark Ruffalo has, it’s pretty clear who the star of this editorial is.

And now we feel like watching Bringing Up Baby tonight.

Vionnet gown. Delfina Delettrez earrings and necklace. Gaspar gloves. Judith Leiber clutch.

Prabal Gurung gown. Stephen Jones high-heel hat.

Nina Ricci gown. Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings. Sonia Rykiel glass pearl brooches. Delfina Delettrez bracelets. Christian Louboutin shoes.

    Why is there a shoe on her head
    W h y

    • nomoreprinces

      Part of me thinks someone was trollin’ over at Vogue and snuck one in there through the magic of photoshop on their last day of work.

      • MandyJane

         I agree… looks like lots of photoshopping in a couple of those pictures.

        • nomoreprinces

          Yeah, beyond the normal nip,tuck and enhance.

          • MARLYS

            @SassieCassy:disqus my ċlassmate’s sister makes $61/hour on the internet. She has been unemṗloyed for five months but laṡt month her income was $21156 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more

        • SkipperJane

          That was my first thought as well.  Maybe because they didn’t want ScarJo in the same location as that leopard?

    • Glammie

      Reference to Elsa Schiaparelli’s shoe hat from the ’30s.  Well, there may still be some whys left, but that should take care of one.

      • Jason M. Galloway

        Thank you for knowing your fashion history.  This editorial is perfection.

        • Glammie

          Thanks, I love that there’s a blog where readers care about fashion history.  I’ve been fascinated by it since I was a little kid.  

        • SassieCassy

          I know my fashion history too. Doesn’t change that its a serious WTF look

          Maybe on someone who could werq more than ScarJo

      • the_stars_under_their_feet

        Ah, I thought that someone was a fan of the movie “Brazil.”

        • cowper

           Didn’t realize that Terry Gilliam was referencing Schiaparelli! Love that movie–remember the menu with the ice-cream scoops of all the same thing?….it looks pretty prescient given “pink slime.” That movie deserves to be in the pantheon of classics.

    • Mitchell Settoon

       It’s an homage to 1930s avant garde designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s infamous shoe hat designed with Salvador Dali in 1937.

      • Monabel

        Why infamous?

    • BluePrue

       Well, one of Elsa Schiaparelli’s more famous designs was a shoe-hat ( and the Met Museum is about to open an exhibition of designs by Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, so I’m guessing it was a kind of fashion-insider wink.
      Also, I did see Bringing Up Baby recently and, while Kate Hepburn’s character didn’t wear a shoe hat, she probably would have if she’d seen it.

    • Anathema_Device

      I didn’t know about Schiaparelli’s hat. I immediately thought of Katherine Helmond in Terry Gilliam’s movie “Brazil.” Like so:

      • Renee H.

         Me too!

    • joe_tey83

       It’s called HIGH FASHION.

      • Lisa


    • SassieCassy

      Mark Ruffalo is staring at her in the show thinking the EXACT same thing

    • Louise Bryan

      Is it really a shoe, or a fascinator?

    • ballerinawithagun

      Weird homage to Schiap?

    • Anne

      Because she’s a madcap eccentric heiress who might conceivably wear a shoe for a hat!

    • Shoelover1512

      I didn’t even notice the shoe at first. Holy crap I apparently don’t notice things

    • lilazander

      Reminds me of “Brazil”, the movie, but in the movie, it was tongue-in-chick futuristic, here it’s just random non-sequitur.

  • Judy_J

    She certainly has the body for those clingy dresses.  Those cut on the bias satin gowns Jean Harlow wore would look fabulous on her.  As it is, she looks damn good in these photos.  But I’m not digging the shoe on her head.

  • Foreoki12

    What do you call that color? “Nude” seems racist.

    • norseofcourse

      “file cabinet”

      • FashionShowAtLunch


      • NinaBoo

        Diet Coke on the keyboard again. Hilarious.

      • Nariya

        norseofcourse wins the Internet today, ladies and gentlemen.

      • YoungSally

         Band-aid original

      • littlemac8

        Champagne, darlings!!!

        • Ferdinanda Florence

          In the spirit of norseofcourse, I’m going for “rotary phone.” 

  • norseofcourse

    She must be suspended from wires in that last pic, ’cause those are NOT dancing shoes.

    • Foreoki12

      Maybe she’s an exceptional yoga practitioner.

    • formerlyAnon

      We can’t see if she’s hanging onto something with that hand that extends outside the frame on our left. Or, to extend the yoga comment, she’s just poised there in a pose that two assistants carefully levered her into, with some plastic filament & a small fan keeping the dress “billowing” back. 

  • currystrumpet

    Great clothes and styling. But she is so not working it.

    • Adriana_Paula

      I know: she looks mainly a little confused in the two leopard photos.

    • egl48

      She is boring.  

    • VicD

      I dunno – it looks like a St. John ad to me.  And that is not a compliment.

  • CES


  • Delysia LaFosse

    The styles certainly suit her very well, but that boring color is just killing me. I could handle it if one of them were beige, but all three? Also, why is she kicking Mark Ruffalo in the ass?

  • Glammie

    Wow, another boring Vogue celeb cover.  Does Anna Wintour no longer care about her job?  THis makes me long for Meryl Streep perched on that rock.

    Spread’s okay, though ScarJo’s no Katharine Hepburn and Mark Ruffalo’s really no Cary Grant.

    • Isabel

      Anna needs a new haircut.

  • WordyDoodles

    She looks like she’s having a good time! The shoe is cracking me up.

    I’m surprised we didn’t hear from TLo on the lack of color in this editorial. Wonder why they focused on that shade?

    And also, didn’t TLo just comment that the retro look wasn’t doing it for her? Or was that the Fugs? Anyhoo, no matter. She looks fabulous here.

    The leopard thing reminds me of the Vanity Fair cover a couple years ago with Rashida Jones bottle feeding the baby leopard.

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    That Prabal Gurung is TO DIE. And now I really want to watch Bringing up Baby too.

  • Taija HU!

    Her face… Looks like she was not ready for the photographs. Is it just me, or does she just not look comfortable in the photo where she’s in the bar? It’s a shame, it would have been fabulous otherwise.

    • NinaBoo

      Honestly, she looks a little scared in a couple of them.  And all the over-the-top Photoshopping makes the Baby Jesus cry.

    • elemspbee

      was just going to type that in. Her face is in transition from one look to another?

  • Rachel Sawyer

    Love everything–including the shoe on her head.

  • Anathema_Device

    Gorgeous!! She looks amazing. And the shoe on the head reminds me of one of my favorite movies, “Brazil.”

  • TheOtherChristina

    I want to live inside this world.

  • formerlyAnon

    Damn she’s gorgeous here.

    You’re right guys, makes up for the last one completely.

  • Adriana Blair

    Did they photoshop her left shoulder off on the cover?

  • IAmJ

    She looks weirdly emaciated in the two shots at the bar. The rest I like.

  • allj

    Not as good as the originals, but they look pretty fantastic:)

  • joe_tey83

    Um, she’s FINALLY lucky in love? What does Ryan Reynolds have to say about that?

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    i am amazed & impressed that she could dance or even faux-dance w/ her shoulders back while wearing those impossible skinny high heels. thick heels, yep, wedges, yep. those, nope.

    elsewise & i am sure i am far from alone in saying this but she wouldve been at least a better visual match for MM than was MW in the most recent MM homage.

    • Sarah Veenstra

      Hell, just keeping her balance on one leg in those shoes is enough to garner a WERQ, imho.

  • Rand Ortega

    I hear she’s up for the Nora Charles role in the remake of “The Thin Man” with Johnny Depp. & reaaaallly wants it. Might explain the editorial.

    • snarkykitten

       oh fuck they’re remaking the Thin Man? With Johnny “my brit accent is worse than Madonna’s” Depp? Barf.

      • Rand Ortega

         Heeheeheehee. Sad, ain’t it? Wanna hear something sadder? They’re filming a remake of “The Lone Ranger” w/ Johnny Depp as Tanto.
        Here’s the promo pic:

      • Rand Ortega

         Wanna hear something even sadder? They’re remaking “The Lone Ranger” w/ Depp as Tanto. Google Lone Ranger remake to see the terrible pics!

        • judybrowni


          And yeah, ridiculous much pics off Depp.

        • snarkykitten

           oooh a white guy playing a Native American. Now there’s a shocker.

      • ViolaZuppa

        Nick and Nora Charles weren’t British, so Johnny Depp’s accent isn’t really included in the myriad of reasons a remake is a horrible idea.  But it is just that, a horrible idea.

        • snarkykitten

           oh I know. it just seems like the last fifty thousand of his movies required him to use that horrible accent. It’s probably in his contract: Johnny only acts if he is allowed to use his accent.

          • formerlyAnon

             As much as I enjoy Mr. Depp, I deeply appreciate the singular “his accent” in your comment.

    • librarygrrl64

      Emily Blunt needs to be Nora Charles. Period.

      • Rand Ortega

         She’s in the running. So is Michelle Williams, Emma Stone (Don’t scoff, in the book, Nora is much younger than Nick, & for the movies, Myrna Loy was 13 years younger than William Powell), Isla Fisher, Carey Mulligan, Kristen Wiig(?), Amy Adams & Eva Green.

        • librarygrrl64

          IMO, Johanssen, Fisher, and Adams lack the ability to play the kind of sophistication that is required for the role. And I think Wiig,although hilarious, is too goofy. She’s an attractive woman, but she doesn’t seem comfortable in her skin in that way. I’m still pulling for Blunt. 

          • Little_Olive

            I’m with ya. She’ll need a hell of a costar though.

    • Kit M

      I was coming here to comment that, though I like this editorial, it’s a weird comparison because Scarlett is pretty much the anti-Katharine Hepburn. But now I have a more important comment to make:

      WHAT WHY NO.

      Thin Man was great (rather than just nice) for precisely one reason. Remaking it without the chemistry that Myrna Loy and William Powell had makes about as much sense as remaking Fred & Ginger movies without the dancing.

    • formerlyAnon

       Trying to be positive: A remake of The Thin Man is going to be a completely different animal, Loy and Powell were a symbiotic presence in that movie.  Not to mention that I doubt any modern movie would try to re-create such a light-hearted glorification of functioning alcoholism.  As long as they re-invent, and don’t try to replicate, it might be o.k.

      Though I’m experiencing a strong urge to retreat to the couch with a bowl of popcorn and my  Myrna Loy collection.

    • Kelsey Albrecht

      Johnny Depp is obviously on a hellbent mission to ruin every single film I ever loved in childhood. I hate him.

      • Little_Olive

        THANK YOU. BTW, don’t kill me, so has Tim Burton – actually, It’s mainly Tim Burton’s fault. Way to overdo fantasies into dense, rigid and dark.

        • Rand Ortega

           Now they’re about to ruin the 1 remake I was actually thrilled & excited to see: “Dark Shadows”. Instead of taking the incredible source material & improving on its sexy, Gothic spookiness, they’re making a spoof. I’m furious & disgusted. Hollywood has not only officially run out of ideas, now they’re hellbent on destroying all of the good 1’s from the past. Burton & Depp should’ve quit at “Sleepy Hollow”. Everything else they’ve done has been swirling the pooper bad.

          • snarkykitten

             I don’t think they know how to quit one another tbh

      • formerlyAnon

        I will never forgive Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.(And I’m a Depp fan.)  And I wasn’t even a child when I first saw it.

        Though, to be fair, I worship the way Gene Wilder played the character so I’d probably have hated even a much, much better remake.

        ETA: Though I think Burton is more at fault than anyone else. All the things I hated most about that movie are practically Burton trademarks.

    • judith traherne

      Remaking The Thin Man with those two would be a crime against cinema.

  • Isy

    This editorial is so… beige. And I guess the theme/styling is pretty, but she just looks awkward in all these shots. Beige.

  • rmarilyn


  • Bri H

    Did they…erase the top few inches of her cleavage on the cover? 

  • shawna ready

    Yes, the star of the editorial is that LEOPARD!!! Wow, what a gorgeous animal.

  • Liana Brooks

    I need all those dresses. Now. Somebody make that happen.

  • Lyza M.

    WOW!!!  She looks fabulous.  And I LOVE Bringing Up Baby…you guys went up on my list for knowing about that movie. :)

  • poketom

    why do her boobs look so sad? Like if she had a nip slip there would just be a frowny face instead of nipples. 

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    “I’ll be with you in a minute Mr. Peabody!”

  • kimmeister

    I want to hang out with a leopard so badly!

  • giiiirrrr

    Please make literal 30s looks be not a thing.  Can you do that for me, bitter kittens?

  • BeeBeauNYC

    She and Mark do not seem thrilled with (or are just really distracted by?) the leopard – she seems uncomfortable petting it by the bar and he looks like he is saying “nice kitty” while facing it directly on the piano.

    • terekirkland

       I think that’s confusion… there is no leopard. 😛 At least not in the same composite layer as her. I doubt any of them were in the same place at the same time. Not even the shoe hat, lol.

  • Kiltdntiltd

    Brava Scar Jo! This woman was born to wear bias cut, slinky as fuck gowns. And the leopard is this season’s must have accessory.

    • Cassie

      Completely. Go for the ’30s-inspired dresses, girl. Seriously, she is SO beautiful, and hardly ever looks as good as she’s capable of. And it’s not “pulling a Jolie,” either – she’s clearly giving it a try, but just can’t seem to find the styles that suit her. I hope she got this stylist’s number.

  • enchanted216

    If you hadn’t said “shoe on her head,” I wouldn’t have noticed!  That’s why I love you:)  One reason….:)

  • calimon

    Her left side is not her good side in the Prabal Gurung dress shot. She looks masculine and the shoe hat isn’t doing her head/face any favors. Like the cover and love the last shot.

  • Pannyx

    Rufallo seems to be pretty much an afterthought in this shoot, but I imagine when she came out in these dresses everyone forgot that he was even there.

  • Kelsey Albrecht

    Anyone know what season that Prabal Gurung gown is? 

  • Trisha26

    I want the leopard.

  • BayTampaBay

    Love the Christian Louboutin shoes in the last photo

  • Louise Bryan

    mrrowr!  Love the kitty.  The actors look pretty good, too.

  • stephkornblum

    Can we discuss how they photoshopped her cleavage out of the cover photo?

  • Maggie

    Now you have me wanting to watch Bringing Up Baby too.

  • turtleemily

    I kinda want the captions in the magazine to say: Fur, leopard’s own

  • j_anson

    I really like these pictures just from a “pretty!” perspective. But, really, an entirely beige-themed shoot? On a blonde? I think she sells it but I question the decision.

  •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Now, that darling is your look.

  • Maluca


  • MzzPants

    I was with it until the shoe on the head.  And I’m sure the last two shots are right before she lands on her ass.

  • ballerinawithagun

    This is the retro look that Scarlett should wear.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Those gowns do suit her so well, and that’s a very pretty editorial.  Love that Prabal Gurung gown especially!

  • lesmaha

    Sorry about the shoe–but even with the shoe, this is the best I’ve ever seen her look.

  • aristida_girl

    She is one of my favorites, and i love how she looks in these photos, but that shoe hat should burn…

  • Susan Crawford

    Love the art deco vibe, and those glamourous, slinky dresses. Even the shoe on her head looks somehow OK in this context. Her hair is styled to perfection, too. All in all – well done, Ms. J.!

  • poggi

    I am at a conference, an academic one, so I really need a little fabulous. I am going to sit here in my orange dress and high heels in a great hotel lobby drinking a white Cosmo amidst a sea of grey and black and navy suits and enjoy my daily dose of TLo. You guysk are awesome. I may not look as fabulous as Scarlet, but in this crowd, I am pretty good.

    • MilaXX

       Wearing an orange dress in a seas of neutrals, I bet you look hella good.

      • poggi

        It did look pretty good. I know that In/Out/Werq don’t really apply to real women in real life, but I was seriously WERQing it.

  • MilaXX

    I quite like this. Even Ruffalo looks like the stylist gave him the full Silkwood before suiting him up.

    • BrooklynBomber

      You made me spit out my wine.

      • MilaXX

        We aim to please.

         Honestly, the guy cleans up nice, but otherwise he looks like the guy who showers once a week and keeps his clothes in a pile on the floor by the bed.

  • nannypoo

    This photo shoot looks like a lot of fun but, you know, I just don’t think she’s particularly attractive.

    • cleep1000

      Her face isn’t working for me in any of these.

  • BrooklynBomber

    There ya go. That’s how to do it.

  • PeaceBang

    Loving everything like mad, and I can’t believe she didn’t fall on her keester and break her tailbone in that last shot.

  • DeTrop

    Absolutely fabulous.  

  • Bozhi

    Much better Scarlett, you look great.

    Is that a real cat?  You guys are very brave!

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Can’t stand the girl, but she does look incredible here.

  • LuisaNL

    love the photos and the shoe hat is genius but her face looks weird. and the photoshop is insane.

  • DarcSwan

    This is a very disorienting shoot – every element is outlined so crisply it looks like neatly lacquered decoupage.

  • Esz

    Designers – back AWAY from the Photoshop.
    Seriously! That cover is BAD. What the hell is going on with her decolletage? And they could have at least blurred the fake cleavage a bit better!?

  • Vaniljekjeks

    The leopard is working it!  Goodness how cute!  I think the clothes were kind of boring, but that cat!  Gorgeous! 

  • Inger Merete Hobbels

    I think I love the clothes – but I KNOW I love the place. Where are they? Famous bar/hotel?

  • RzYoung

    Cor! She looks incredible – why can’t she reproduce this look on the RC? I know it’s obvious but it just suits her so well.

    I hope she was on strings in that last shot, i’m sure her position in that dress and those shoes is the point of no return.

    I just LOVE Mark, he can do no wrong. He’s so humble

  • TigerLaverada

    I’ve always adored 30s type bias-cut gowns. These ROCK, other than the dull palette.

  • judith traherne

    Love everything about this spread except for her vacuous expression. The leopard is bringing it however.

  • Ally Monge

    Million times better than the versace yesterday. She looks gorgeous head to toe (or shoe to shoe).

  • TheDivineMissAnn

    Bringing Up Baby is a classic!  Even my kids love it.

  • Austen Jane

    Wow. I thought for sure “Shoe on her head” was a euphemism. 

  • Nancer

    Did you notice in the last picture, her hand is cut off? I think that’s because she is holding onto something – or someone – to steady her. Which is fine – those shoes would be killer to do kicks in!

    I’m not a Scarjo fan, but these are very pretty looks on her. Except for the shoe on the head. That’s just odd.

  • YoungSally

    In the first photo it looks like they photoshopped Natalie Portman’s face on her.

    Oh my goodness – Bringing Up Baby is one of the WORST movies I have ever seen.  I cannot believe Katherine Hepburn made that film. 

    ScarJo looks fantastic, though.

  • guest2visits

    I want to like it. All the pieces are there, but…. too forced looking; kind of off coloring.
    The cover shot is fine and I ‘spose if she hadn’t lifted her leg in that phony kick,-
    I wouldn’t have been able to see those great shoes.

  • JanieS


    Oh, um … Ms. Johansson looks quite good, even with a shoe on her head. But also KITTY.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    These Old Hollywood looks really do suit her.
    Mark Ruffalo cleans up well and looks pretty damned good when not permitted to dress himself.

  • Jecca2244

    ugh. Vogue sucks any creative energy right out of a room. Try harder. and the leopard is so cliche, so Cartier at this point. (I was up late for a work event last night so I might just be an extra bitter kitten today)

  • UltimaEsperenza

    She is breathtakingly beautiful.  Sorry, everyone.

  • amywinns

    I love it. I even love the photoshop burnishing that makes these photos look oil-painting-like. And these gowns are the END. I don’t care that all the fabrics are 50 Shades of Beige. They work!

  • Margaret Nikoleit

    Love the first Vionnet gown. When did that label get resurrected? They were the bees’ knees back in the day.

  • Me Again

    She looks FAN-TASTIC!  I absolutely LOVE this shoot, except for the shoe on the head.  That was… a choice.

  • Liz

    Love that last shot.  I barely noticed the shoe on her head; I couldn’t see past the vacant stare.

  • lilazander

    What an unogiginal editorial! And the cover is bland and cliche; Scarlett has so much more potential. 

  • Leigh Anne Statton

    I think she’s more gorgeous here than I’ve ever seen her. For someone with such a slammin bod & perfection of features, she sometimes brings the fug.  But here — me-OW! (see what i did there?)  also? Those Louboutins are ferosh!

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    What I don’t understand is, if this is indeed an homage to the ’30s, why the hell isn’t Ruffalo clean shaven???  A man would NEVER go out on the town with that stupid scruff.  Would it have killed him to shave it off?  Does it not grow back??  (Pet peeve, obviously…)

  • AthenaJ

    Scarlett has a gorgeous bod and face, but her expressions bore me to tears.

    Pretty eyes, but not much going on behind them.

  • terekirkland

    I find the post-production to be super distracting in this editorial. Her, Ruffalo, the jaguar, all look like Colorforms or paper dolls just stuck in wherever. It all reads really flat and VERY fake. Maybe I’m just being harsh because I deal with digital images and do graphic design work in my day to day, but the compositing looks like it was done by a drunk orangutan.

    Nice dress, though, ScarJo. Oh, wait, that’s three dresses you have to squint at to see the differences. My bad.

  • Chaiaiai

    The opening shot reminds me of “Who’s That Girl?” except that it’s a cheetah and not a tiger.  Which is funny, in light of Scarlett’s romance with Sean Penn. 
    Her hair color looks great here. 

  • Christopher Melchiors

    The photos are well done but she doesn’t seem to be showing much emotion in any of them, even when she’s supposed to be dancing. I guess it was paralyzed by either fear of the leopard or botox.

  • Thathoodwink

    Beautiful!……who is she (finally) lucky in love with? Google time!

    • Thathoodwink

      I don’t see any info on a new man in her life….so that’s what makes her lucky! I agree!!

  • Nonnah

    She … looks great!  He … why can’t that man shave?  No man in the 30s would be wearing a tux and have a 3 day beard. 

  • McSpanky

    I loove the one where she’s kicking up her heel. Girlfriend looked so sad and d-u-m-p-e-d after the d-i-v-o-r-c-e. She got her glow back and good for her!

  • nicole seligman

    this is awful. give that girl some color. and take that shoe off her head. also, all the posing (face especially) is awkward and awful. bad bad bad.

  • AngDM

    Can I just insert into the conversation: Stephen Jones designed that hat, it’s not just a shoe on the head.  He is definitely referencing Elsa Schaiparelli’s famous shoe hat from the 30’s. Schaiparelli was influenced by surrealist artists like Dali.  She created some truly interesting shapes and motifs in her clothing because of it.  It’s a great nod to her just as an exhibit based  on her work is about to to open.  And Stephen Jones is a pretty talented and adventurous designer as well.

    T-Lo, I think it’s time you started educating (some of) your readership on fashion history and/or the meaning/reason behind high fashion editorials.  Many of the commentariat seem to not understand fashion shoots aren’t meant to illustrate the clothing as the average person would wear it on the street.  It’s tedious and tiresome trudging through all the “who would wear that!” and “what were they thinking!?!” comments.  Let’s elevate the discourse.

    You know that magazine art directors must have shorthand for the type of look they are going for. This porcelain retro movie-star look feels condescending to me….”You could never possibly live this life.” It’s not aspirational, it just feels fake.

    The editorial is nice. The cover – as usual – of American Vogue bum out boring.
