Scarlett Johansson in Saint Laurent

Posted on June 10, 2013

This seems a little business-like for the Tonys red carpet.


Scarlett Johansson attends the 2013 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City in Saint Laurent.

Granted, it’s business-like in a night-time soap opera kind of way, but still. We don’t mind it, though. It’s not setting us on fire, but it’s a sharp enough look. We love the jacket especially; that piece pretty much makes it, as far as we’re concerned. But we don’t know… we feel like it’s really missing something – a statement piece of jewelry, some more sparkly shoes, less limp hair  – to raise it up out of the doldrums. In short, it’s good enough, but some zhuzhing was called for here.

    A pair of statement earrings? A dressier hairdo?

    • snarkykitten

      A less drugged out face?

      • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

        Thank you! She always looks completely baked in all the shots I see of her nowadays.

      • Emily

        This. She looks ridiculously high. It’s just unattractive.

  • snarkykitten

    Did she get into the mother’s helpers? What is up with her facial expression?

    • capybara_cafe

      Or lack thereof.

  • Oh what I wouldn’t do for that jacket.

  • demidaemon

    Everyone on this red carpet looks like they had a major helping of downers.

  • stubbornthoughts

    That is a dead face if I’ve ever seen one.

  • Rand Ortega

    More jewelry (bracelets, earrings, preferably diamonds or rubies) would’ve made this look killer.

  • MilaXX

    Dull. It look like one of those work to after work event looks the Style network fashion shows try to convince you are fashionable.

  • alyce1213

    I don’t like that her lips are obviously over-outlined. It always looks cheap to me. Her natural lips are already in the luscious category, so she sure doesn’t need it. Otherwise, I love the dress and jacket.

  • berkeleygirl

    My take? She was trying to keep the spotlight off her and on the theater folk. I respect that.

  • Michael_Jones

    It says “I would have dressed better if you had nominated me…”

    • Little_Olive

      To me it says “here comes the new corporate bitch, people. That’s right, I won’t stop until I OWN floor 21”

  • crash1212

    Scarlett’s sad hair is making me sad.

  • hughman

    Lost In Penn Station

  • A facial expression that conveyed signs of life would be an excellent start.

    • GorgeousThings

      Well, given how flat her performance was on the show, it fits.

      Next time, she should not light up a blunt in the cab on the way over.

  • PrunellaV

    She looks like a madam.

  • steeg of their own

    I wish she’d done something different with her eyes. The lipstick is so ~drama that her eyes need more than nude shadow something to keep the top of her face from looking wilted.

  • AngelaGreen

    The real question is: What’s up with zombie face?

    • Annarosa

      The other real question is: where are her boobies gone?

  • MzzPants

    A happy expression would have been the perfect accessory. She looks lethargic.

  • Lola Channing

    a contest of purposeless suffering. She is dressing against type and it’s not working. She is not a Hedi Slimane/Saint Laurent girl.

  • filmcricket

    The jacket looks totally wonky to me. Maybe it’s just my monitor and I can’t distinguish it well enough from the dress?

    Anyway, Amanda Woodward’s giving her snaps, but I’m not sure this is RC worthy, even on a night when you’re a movie star who’s not nominated.

  • Coolekat

    What’s really missing is any expression on that beautiful face.

  • frannyprof

    A lucid facial expression would be a step in the right direction.

    • I was thinking the same thing. She looks so bored and over everything. It’s the Tonys, darling! It’s ok to have fun with it!

  • kimiakay

    Another one I almost didn’t recognize. I love her clothes here, especially those shoes. But her dazed look draws the eye first.

  • Maluca

    She’s desperate to be taken seriously, isn’t she.

  • jmorino08

    Both her face and hair just look droopy. And with face and hair like that, that’s a tragedy, America!

  • Damien W

    The name on everybody’s LinkedIn lists’ll be….ROXIE!

  • She looked like she had run over from an awards dinner at JP Morgan!!! You guys are being way too generous. I understand that there is some cra-cra with the theater people but this showed lack of effort and I deplore lack of effort. I sense a chip on her shoulder for not getting nominated.

  • bertkeeter

    Hedi Slimane @ YSL needs some anti-depression meds…all I can say!

  • Janet B

    If the Tony’s were a lunchtime affair she would get a pass, but this is a big miss.

    Maybe forgot to change after getting so “relaxed”.

  • titaness25

    All sorts of ladydogs would be cut for that jacket. She looks so unhappy, though. Or bored. Unhappily bored?

  • Tatiana Luján

    I love the jacket.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Close your mouth! Ugh, what’s with actors – men with their hands in their pockets, women with their mouths always open.

  • quiltrx

    The slack-jawed look isn’t really selling this, is it?

  • You know how sometimes you fall into the k-hole and end up at the Tonys dressed like Alexis Carrington on a walk of shame? Me too, Scarlett. Me too.

  • nannypoo

    If you show up stoned you can wear most anything and not really care, as Scarlett is apparently showing us here.

  • Donna Tabor

    It’s a female version of a tuxedo.

  • MiriamMc75

    I’ll tell you what it’s missing TLo – it’s missing a wearer with some damn personality, that’s what! The vacant stare and “bored and over it” demeanor are very off putting to say the least…

  • pattycap11

    just an impression, i have no idea, but i think this look says that she is maybe a little defensive about being a beautiful film star. she really is a very good actress who has done well on broadway, and i think she’s trying to say, move along, nothing to see here, i’m a no-frills actress who loves the theater. but gosh, she sure didn’t have to go this far.

  • marlie

    How about an expression that doesn’t say “I’m bored” or “I’m stoned”?

  • e jerry powell

    The feeling I was getting was that she didn’t want to be there.

  • MannahattaMamma

    Gosh, sorry we’re boring you missy scarlett. next time just stay the hell home and watch the show on the telly like the rest of us.

  • joancarol

    She looks like she took to many Benadryls.

  • Diego!

    I used to hate her, but now I love her. She does have a secretary look, but it suits her!

  • PeaceBang

    I think she was aiming for “I’m a serious ah-ctress” and landed on “I had one too many drinks with my afternoon Clonopin.” Bless her heart.

  • amaranth16

    She looks like she just got to the job interview, realized her skirt was just a skoch too short, and consequently now has to vomit.

  • bellafigura1

    What’s wrong, ScarJo? Why so glum?! Her face looks different.

  • AutumnInNY

    I almost didn’t recognize her. I can’t put my finger on what’s different about her pretty face but something is. Anyone know what the ink on her ankle is? Can’t make out the tattoo. This look is fine, but seems a bit matron-ish for someone so young.

  • marielainey

    I think she looks sexy as hell. The makeup is divine and being so covered up just makes me wanna rip her clothes off her and see what sexy underthings she’s got on : )

    • PinkLemon

      LOVE the lip

  • Mimi

    I actually love the hair, yet a gold belt i think would have made this more sexy with her curves

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    She looks completely stoned! WHY?

  • A bored businss woman
