Scarlett Johansson in Michael Kors at the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” Paris Premiere

Posted on March 18, 2014

Scarlett Johansson IS… HOT HILLARY CLINTON:



Scarlett Johansson attends the premiere of  “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” at Le Grand Rex today in Paris, France in Michael Kors.

You can flip up the lapels and slap on the silver heels, but you just can’t disguise that Secretary of State realness. Especially when you pair it with that hairstyle. It’s not a … terrible look, but it’s not really a good one, either. We just don’t see how to make a basic red pantsuit look chic in a red carpet setting. She’s gonna need to ditch either the jacket or the pants. Since she seems sold on wearing skinny pants, we’d switch them out for black. In red, they don’t look “skinny,” so much as they look “too tight.”  Honestly? We have no idea what kind of top she should be wearing here. A basic black cami is fine for a lot of situations, but again; it’s not coming off very red carpet-ready.

And finally, a little red carpet tip from T Lo: If you’re going to be photographed on a red carpet, carrying your slick, shiny clutch, DON’T STOP AT A MCDONALD’S DRIVE-THRU FOR SOME FRIES ON THE WAY THERE. Seriously, girl. What’s going on there?

    This is giving me opinion whiplash. I go from really liking it to really hating it with every once over I give it. I’m solid on liking the necklace.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Same. That necklace is cute and I think it really is a cute modern Hilary look, but not on a red carpet where the drama of the red gets lost.

  • Moriginal

    The fries were for THE BABY.

    • Fanny_Trollope

      I seriously did not get the French fry reference. I thought the bag had a marbled finish. You mean those are fingerprints? Oh dear.

      • Yeah it’s not so much food grease as it is finger grease. It’s like an iPad after spending an hour typing and swiping on it. Her handler needed to wipe it down with a microfiber cloth.

  • carnush

    WTF is going on with her hair. It’s just so…unattractive.

    • Sartorial_She

      It’s so very Flock of Seagulls.

      • Alloy Jane

        I KNEW it looked familiar. Flock of Seagulls, yes. I don’t mind the outfit even though it’s not typical red carpet lady wear. But if the blokes can show up in jeans I’m not gonna be too critical. I don’t see how those are fingerprints on that clutch. I don’t see swirl patterns, but maybe I’m really blind. Dunno…

    • SierraDelta

      How very. . .restrained. . .of you to notice just how unattractive it is.

  • sweetestsith

    I LOVE the shape of the hairdo on her, it looks amazing with her facial structure. However, the quality of the finish is distinctly…awful. Crunchy AND greasy, just say no!

    For whatever reason, I like the pants suit. It looks cute on her (maybe I need more coffee?), and it’s a fun choice for the premiere. However, I would’ve gone with a sheer/lacy/sparkly top underneath. The black is ok (not sure what would be better), but it really really needs more texture and interest to avoid blending with the lapels.

    • deelup

      I think a simple, fitted white scoop neck tank top thingie would look great.

      • kmk05

        But would it clash with the black lapels?

        I actually quite like this, but I would have changed the hairstyle to something more fun/young and kept this hairdo for a gown.

        • Kate Andrews

          She always wants to do something weird with her hair. Just let it be, ScarJo!

    • 3boysful

      I adore ScarJo, and covet her bone structure, but I think the hair, greasy/crunchy aside, is making her face look oddly long.

      • sweetestsith

        Hmm, I guess I can see where you’re coming from. To my eye, it emphasizes her heart face shape without looking too random or dowdy like some of the 40s styles she loves so much (not hating on the 40s hair, it just never really suits her). I dislike her hair do’s most of the time, so its always a pleasant surprise when she shows up in one that looks pretty to my eye.

  • decormaven

    Black pants would have been a better pairing for this look; even so, it is a bit too corporate business-looking for the RC of an action flick. Guess she had to stop for Le Big Mac prior to the photo shoot.

    • LilyVanessi

      It could have been a Royale with Cheese…

  • deelup

    Like the suit. Hate the styling.

  • Anna

    I like the necklace and it’s nice to see celebs smiling and happy. Do not understand the thought process behind requesting/approving that hairstyle and pairing it with this pantsuit.

  • Is that really a black cami, or is it a black frontpiece sewn into the opening of the jacket? I can’t really tell. Her hair is kinda greasy looking. I do like the shoes, although there’s a style disconnect between them and the suit. And yes, the pants are too tight. Points for the beautiful necklace. Overall I’d give this a B-, which is not very good for a big celeb at a major premiere, in Paris no less.

    Late edit: I just looked at the photos again and in the last one it’s clear that she is indeed wearing a cami. I was confused by the presence of the black lapels–on my computer they all looked bled together.

  • leahpapa

    Am I the only one who thinks Hillary Clinton is Hot Hillary Clinton?

    • Roz

      Hot ‘n’ Greasy Hillary Clinton!

  • MarissaLG

    I would be pissed if I were that bag’s designer.

    What’s with those silver shoes? Are those a thing now? Rashida Jones was wearing some very similar sandals a few days ago, no?

  • That’s what my hair looks like when I’ve put a treatment in, and I swirl it up into a bun and stick a shower cap over it. Only time it holds that swoop. Seeing that Sodastream have sponsored this event, it makes me wonder how much pressure she was under and from how many sources to renounce Oxfam in the recent controversy.

    • VioletFem

      She ended her relationship with Oxfam.

      • I know. My question is whether sodastream’s support for this movie added more pressure to making that decision.

        • leahpapa

          I wasn’t aware of this controversy – I’m quite disappointed by her choice.

        • kmk05

          I didn’t realise sodastream sponsored/supported this until you said it (and I looked at the background). It’s really disappointing and frustrating if they put pressure on her, but it wouldn’t be surprising.

  • jw_ny

    I think the black cami is the biggest culprit in this look not being successful. Flip the collar back down…that wasn’t enough to modernize the look. Put on a light, flowy, print top with longish flowy cuffs sticking out of the suit cuffs (kinda something in the Flo Welch wheelhouse.)

  • The shoes look comfortable, for once. All in all, ScarJo is never a bad way to start a morning off…

  • CPK1

    the hair is beyond fug

  • kipper

    morning sickness realness

  • marlie

    80s power suit. I’m not feeling it.

  • DTLAFamilies

    The bag looks like it’s licking the salt off her fingers.

  • Nancer

    Ugh. No.

  • ojosazules

    She’s awfully tacky lately, what’s up with that? The necklace is pretty.
    She seems really happy these days.

  • annrr

    Keep the necklace and start over with that as your inspiration.

  • Sarah

    Not really bothered by the outfit too much, but that eyeshadow looks like a color that was in a play set I got when I was 7. My brother said “did somebody punch you in both eyes?!” after I put it on and showed him. He was being a big brother kind of mean, but still.

  • ccinnc

    Lt. Uhura realness. I like it.

  • That is some swoopy hair. I don’t even care if “swoopy” isn’t a word.

  • kt

    The hair and makeup aren’t great, but that suit looks fab on her. I would say the cami is for the baby, which takes the suit a little bit away from sex kitten, but girl, that is how you elongate when you have the pin up body that she does.

  • your face

    I like everything about this outfit other than maybe the silver heels. And I kind of like those too. Hair and makeup are cute in my book.

  • lunchcoma

    Someone as busty as Scarlett shouldn’t be wearing an open blazer over a cami anyway. It looks like she might have gained a cup size or so with the pregnancy, but even before that wouldn’t have been a flattering look.

  • Gatto Nero

    This is a good outfit for her, if not especially for the red carpet. Frankly I’m relieved she put the boobs away.
    The hair is too tight and stiff, though.
    As for the clutch, isn’t there a marbled, sort of iridescent effect in the leather (or whatever that is)? I don’t think the shiny, dappled surface is from eating fries on the way to the venue.

  • formerlyAnon

    I like the necklace, I’d like the hair A LOT if it didn’t look a bit slapdash and over-producted. The pants do look too tight, but I like the overall look. Maybe my standards are not high enough. Maybe I just really really like that loose, body skimming cami-tank plus jacket look. Because I do.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Boys I must reprimand you…That collar is not flippable, it is constructed to stand that way and would not lay down in a typical lapel fashion. Not that I necessarily like the collar but I’m not an MK fan. Because she is pregnant I’m letting the black top pass, I wish it would have been longer to peek out from under the jacket and also hide the possible (forbidden) camel toe. Some tough booties might have been nice. She has such beautiful hair, I really hate it when she wears these ’40s (age and decade) hairstyles.
    So I’m missing the McD reference. Is there some grease on the ugly purse that isn’t showing on my screen?

    • In the close up of the purse it is covered in fingerprints!

      • ballerinawithagun

        Thanks, I just thought it was whatever really ugly material that it was made from.

        • I think it’s that cheap plastic lacquer vanity cases are made from.

  • MilaXX

    The whole look is like she was going to an 80’s party. I didn’t think the clutch was smudged, I thought it was marbled.

  • KinoEye

    Oh, geez. I like you quite a bit, Scarlett, but you’ve never seemed to figure out this whole personal style thing. One day, you’re boobtastic, and the next, you’re Hot Hillary Clinton. What gives?

  • msdamselfly

    I dont know if is the photos but the whole coloring looks off- her skin looks very yellow and is clashing with the red outfit

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Hillary Clinton? I’m getting 21st century young Nancy Reagan.

    • Nancy was not a pants-wearing kind of gal, unless she was riding side-saddle next to Ronnie for photo ops.

      • KinoEye

        I can corroborate this. This Christmas, I received the truly random gift of a calendar featuring the Gipper working on his ranch. There is indeed a photo of a pants-wearing Nancy.

        • That is the best Christmas present ever.

          • KinoEye

            It was. Some nights when I’m a bit tipsy, I find myself standing in front of the calendar, which features quotes on freedom and the economy, reading said quotes in Ronnie’s voice. I have fun with it.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Don’t get the all-caps McDonald’s drive-thru reference…

    • surfergirl70

      Her bag is covered with greasy-looking fingerprints.

      • Judy_J

        I didn’t realize the bag was patent leather….I thought those smudges were part of the texture.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    This makes me feel bad for starts having to get dressed for photo opps while trying to account for lighting & flashes, because look at how many different shades of red that suit appears to be just in these pictures alone!

  • brown-eyed girl

    Ugh! Looks like an attack of a polyester suit from the 80s. I don’t think the collar on the jacket is popped, I think it’s made that way.

  • kimmeister

    If I looked like that in skinny red pants, I would never take them off. (Ok, so that’s a flat-out lie, but you know what I mean.) I have no issues with the suit. The biggest problem, for me, is that the black shell is basically the same length as the jacket and it vertically cuts her in half. It would look better shorter (or possibly even tucked in). I also think the precious necklace is completely wrong with the look.

  • Michelle my belle

    I love that she can dress va-va-voom one day and more demure the next, but this really isn’t working for me.

  • gksp

    100% of these choices are bad. Seriously, all bad.

  • Not remotely fashionable, but I cannot BELIEVE how not pregnant she looks.

  • Froggae

    Ha, I was all “wait, where are the fries?” and then I saw the close up of the bag. Gross.
    As for the look, everything is fine except the hair, pants and fingerprint smudges. Skinny dark jeans and bed head hair would have catapulted this look into hot but still acceptable for a red carpet.

  • Michelle Gennari

    What’s up with that hair hat?

  • Boobs Radley

    Didn’t Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan wear something like this with a matching turban?

  • Judy_J

    That is quite possibly one of the worst hairstyles I’ve seen in recent memory.

  • Trickytrisha

    Yup, the hair makes her head look like a triangle.

  • A.E. Boredom Queen

    Meh, anything looks better than that godawful outfit she wore last time. Although that bag is ridiculously tacky.

  • somebody blonde

    Her hair is a lot like mine. Any serious amount of product makes it look greasy. She should probably avoid hairstyles in which product is that necessary.

  • Jecca2244

    I love that she probably announced she was pregnant because she had a movie coming out. Because I don’t think I would have noticed.

  • Her body looks like the head of 55 year ol real housewives plastic surgery addict should be attached to it. I’m sure that’s not the look she was going for.

  • mjmiller77

    she is so beautiful, but yuck on everything here, except the necklace. Wrong hair, bad makeup, blah clothes. This makes her look so not good.

  • Lilak

    Nothing about this get-up makes any sense, That’s the only way I can think to describe it.
