Scarlett Johansson at ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’ Photocall

Posted on November 28, 2012

Looks like we can add Miss Scarlett to the list of ladystars who do a lot better the less gussied up they get.


Scarlett Johansson (pictured with Benjamin Walker) attend ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’ photocall in New York City. Scarlett is wearing a Band of Outsiders black blazer, a Piamita striped top and silk pants, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Dana Rebecca Designs jewelry.

This isn’t quite perfect; the pants don’t really seem to go with the rest of the outfit, but we do love the striped top and jacket together. And the brown pumps were an interesting choice. But what really struck us is how young she looks here. Or, put more accurately, she looks her actual age. When she straps on the gowns and gets her hair did, she tends to go for looks that add quite a bit of years to her look, but the relaxed hair and simple makeup are really doing the job here. If she’d picked a pair of pants that actually went with the top half, we’d have called this a personal best.

He’s cute, but we hate his hair. And what’s the point of wearing a tie clip when you’re not even going to button the top button of your shirt?

    This is very relaxed and pretty!

  • mjude

    i am just going to say this.  the way she is standing she looks like she feels “fat”. 

    •  Agreed. She looks great but a little self-conscious. He looks like Charlie Sheen.

      • formerlyAnon

         I wondered if she was perhaps not so enthusiastic about his rather possessive waist clasping.

        • mjude

          look at the photo where he doesnt have his arm around her…same thing

          • formerlyAnon

            You’re right.

      • I was thinking more like Kyle MacLachlan.

        • mshesterp

          Definitely getting a Kyle McLachlan vibe.

    • mshesterp

      I feel like it’s the pants.  I get puffy around my middle, and I would HATE those pants…they’re too blousy and a little too high-waisted. The top half of her is adorable, and I like the brown heels.  Just not digging the blue stuff in the middle.

  • Surprisingly, one of her better looks. Less is more.

  • G

    Bracelet tattoo?  Cute.

    • Monabel


    • I think it’s a rosary.  I hate it.  (not because it’s a rosary, but because I think it’s ugly.)

  • Jill_3

    I like the top but I think those pants are of the devil.

    • DeborahJozayt

      I agree with you. My husband glanced at the screen and shuddered.

  • Miss Scarlett’s outfit looks like it was pulled out of the dirty laundry. Plus, it’s all so awful i don’t care who they are by. His hair: definitely dorky. But the suit: nice. 

  • NC_Meg

    I wish those were skinny pants or jeans but otherwise, wow, she looks great!

  • DTLAFamilies

    You could fit two Scarlett’s in those pants plus they are horribly wrinkled. Too bad because from the waist up she looks great.

  • charlotte

    What’s happening today? Everyone looks so different. She looks good except for the pants.

  • Mike Owens

    Wow. Ben is a delicious tall drink of water. Hope Scarlett can manage to keep her hands of Mamie’s hubby. 

    • formerlyAnon

       It is his hand that seems to be more firmly clasping than required for the pose.

    • YoungSally

      ScarJo better not — he’s mine!!  I even got a lap dance from him at Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson…..he asked if he could show me his “stimulus package”

  • Judy_J

    Scarlett needs to throw those pants back into the trashbag from whence they came.

  • I really like it, it has a French chic kind of vibe. It does highlight her natural beauty in ways the iron lung corset dresses never do.
    Band of Outsiders is a brand I dig.

  • BrooklynBomber

     And the brown pumps were an interesting choice.

    You mean an “interesting” choice?  This reminds of the kind of outfit I’d put together, then see later and think, “oh, no.”

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Those pants don’t fit her at all. She looks wider and stumpy.

    The make up/hair are flawless, though.

    • Yeah, her legs look gigantic.

  • dress_up_doll

    Are those palozzo pants? Or, do they possibly have a drawstring? The way they’re hanging they look like the waist is cinched or something. Either way, they don’t go with the shirt/jacket combo, or shoes.

  • really, who cares about her. It’s all about Benjamin Walker. Hair is a mess but that adds to the appeal, sigh

  • kimmeister

    She generally annoys me, but she does look pretty cute here.

    His hair just looks like he had hat hair and tried to fluff it up.

  • Rand Ortega

    Pardon my ignorance, but, who’s the dude?

    • Rand Ortega

      PS: Her pants are hiddy.

    • YoungSally

      Benjamin Walker — most recently of the unfortunate Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer…but better known for his work on Broadway (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, etc).  Recently wed to Meryl Streep’s daughter Mamie.

      • julnyes

         he sure is grabby for a newlywed….

        • YoungSally

          The lap dance I got was part of his Andrew Jackson character in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson…and he was only engaged then…

          But who knows the powers of ScarJo….although I am certain I would not want to mess with Mama Meryl.

  • formerlyAnon

    He looks cute and young and disheveled.

    She looks cute and I love the ensemble. I like the pants. She can pull them off, most couldn’t.

  • kschwarting

    Are they channeling their characters in this photocall?  OK, I know Maggie and Brick’s marriage is seriously strained in the play, but that is some really uncomfortable body language.

  • Hate the baggy pants.

  • MrsMaxPower

    This is WAY better than that poison ivy get up with Chav hair she was rocking the other day, so I consider it a major improvement.

  • What’s the deal with tie clips anyway?  When and why did they come back?  They don’t seem to really serve a purpose and they detract rather than add to a look.

  • minnye

    Wait… Scarlett Johansson is Maggie the Cat? No no no no no no no.

    • Only on Broadway, where the play’s been done 8 gazillion times by now. I don’t consider it a travesty.

    • Really. How ridiculous. Liz Taylor she ain’t.

  • I love all the colors at play here, especially the blue pants and the brown shoes, but those pants are way too baggy. A more tailored pair and this would look perfect.

  • imakeart

    I think he looks like a taller Michael J. Fox.


    I’ve always felt that the less she “tries” to be glam or super sexy, the better she looks. Love this (except the pants…) I always refer back to her in Woody Allens “Match Point”, she looked so fantastic and sexy in that film but in a very casual way.

    • I remember how sexy everyone thought she looked in a tshirt and underwear in Lost in Translation.

  • H3ff

    She looks like her character from Lost in Translation, which is to say a prettier, more normal ScarJo.

  • Cathy S

    I think she looks great.

  • glennethph

    The Black Widow and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

  • For the first time she does look her age which is a much better look for her.

  • NCDFan

    He looks like someone gave him a shirt with too small a neck. She looks out of proportion somehow.

  • kcarb1025

    HE supposed to be Brick??? Omg what a let down.  RIP Paul

  • She is one of the most beautiful women to have ever existed, and she’s still criticized like crazy. mjude, you suck. Stop hating women. She is the 99.9% as far as looks go. You may as well be calling Bill Gates poor.
