We don’t credit her for being much of a model, but we think the gal needs some props for this one:

Because who could wear a metallic red jumpsuit and make it look … mostly not horrible? Or at least, not as horrible as it should look, by all rights.
On playing young women: “When I made Lost in Translation, I was 17, and now I’m 29…. I think I’ve been ‘in my early twenties’ for, like, over a decade! That’s a normal side effect of being a young actor. You’re captured in a certain time of your life, and it’s hard for people to move past that.”
On her role in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”: “I had some pretty rad fight sequences in Avengers, but a lot of the fighting in Winter Soldier is hand-to-hand. It’s brutal, street-fighting style… such a weird thing: I kinda got career-sidetracked in the superhero lane—happily! But I never thought I’d have, like, sports injuries.”
On why she doesn’t like the nickname ScarJo: “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant. And there’s something kind of violent about it. There’s something insulting about it.”
On how living in Paris has changed her sense of style: “The nice thing about being in Paris is that you know everybody’s looking at what you’re wearing: You have an audience, you know? New York is about street style that’s functional. A Paris look is not functional! It doesn’t matter if your shoes are comfortable. Here [in New York] you can still wear your Nikes. In Paris you suck it up. You hobble around. Although my girlfriends in Paris and I decided we’re adopting the trend of athletic streetwear ’cause we got sick of it. I was like, ‘I am sick of not feeling my big toe after two hours of dancing!’”
We had a discussion about the ScarJo thing (because that’s our life now: discussions about purely trivial celebrity complaints) and we think she’s got a valid beef here. Her given name is very pretty, distinctive and memorable. The nickname really does sound kind of ugly. We don’t think we’ve over-used it, but we’re going to make a concerted effort to back away from it.
But you’ll have to pry “K Stew” out of our cold dead hands.

Those last two shots are some of the best picture of her we’ve ever seen. She favors somewhat elaborate or lacquered hair styles in her red carpet appearances, but the relaxed, wind-blown look is where it’s at for her. Love the Louis Vuitton, but the Blumarine dress is, well, a little silly.
