Oscars 2020 Countdown: Scarlett Johansson-Ology

Posted on February 06, 2020


Miss Scarlett enjoys the distinction of being up for two different acting Oscars for two very different roles, which makes it not so much of a surprise that she’s been out there a LOT and that her fashion has been wildly different at times. Even so, it’s not hard to figure out where her preferences lie.



Scarlett Johansson in Celine at the Venice Film Festival

In a lot of ways, this is the quintessential Scar Jo look: a sexy, Marilyn Monroe-esque sort of gown with sleek hair and heavy makeup. And we’ve been pretty vocal all through awards season that we think it’s a terrible look.

She will occasionally play with print and go for things like flounces and ruffles to shake things up a bit.

She will also dabble in metallics – but never as much as she should. This dress aside, which is not great, she tends to look fantastic in shimmering looks.



Scarlett Johansson in Christian Dior at the New York Film Festival Premiere

This feels like an outlier. She’s still got the tight hair and heavy face, but this sort of retro-classic style and this silhouette are both unusual for her.



Scarlett Johansson in Celine at the Governors Awards

She’s a bit more consistent when it comes to awards shows or film festivals, for which she chooses a lot of standard gowns.

But for premieres, she tends to get a little goofy with things. If we really had to predict, we’d say these next two are pretty close to what you can expect from her on Oscars night:

Scarlett Johansson in Armani Privé at the SAG Awards

Something that highlights the body in a high-fashion kind of way. It’s her style sweet spot and it’s what she tends to do for the more important occasions.

Our fear, however, is that she’ll give in to her worst instincts:


Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace at the BAFTA Awards

We don’t mind a draggy, sexy screen goddess kind of gown, but she really doesn’t “get” exuberance in fashion. She never knows what to do with it.
