Scarlett Johansson and her nifty sense of fashion
A celebrity’s worst nightmare is to be panned by her (or his) fans for a doubtful sense of fashion. Many celebs are noted for their incredibly sartorial sense, while many others are looked upon with distaste at their choice of clothing. Scarlett Johansson is part of the former category. Always dressed impeccably, whether she is at a casual get together or a formal, glitzy do, she is always photographed wearing clothes that make her stand out in the crowd, never looking uncomfortable or vulgar. No wonder then that she is the face of many a stylish brand – Elle, Dolce and Gabbana and Mango.
Recently, her edgy style in The Avengers has put her in the fashion spotlight yet again. If we look at her rise to stardom, from the fresh faced little girl to the smouldering diva of today, we can see that she has continuously followed a single mantra where her style was concerned – wear what you feel comfortable in. As a tiny lass just after the release of her film North, aged 10, an adorable Scarlett was photographed at an awards show wearing a knitted yellow dress which she paired with lime green platforms. She was never the kind to wear promiscuous attire as a child – a trend we see in many child stars nowadays, unfortunately. Subsequent photographs of the child star showed that this sense prevailed and she was snapped wearing clothes that sit pretty on a child her age – never too glamorous and always well presented.
She did go through a phase during the late nineties, wherein she was photographed wearing frumpy , mannish clothing, but she soon sorted that out as well – even though the pin striped pants stayed, they were well tailored and paired with a singlet vest cut to suit her figure – the outfit might have been man inspired, but never looked more feminine.
In 2000 she appeared at the Vanity Fair Oscars party looking like the leading lady she was well on her way to becoming in a black gown accentuated by a red pashmina shawl and she has not looked back since – ever since then, she wore form flattering dresses and gowns in cuts which suited her curvaceous frame. Reds and blacks and combination of the two colours were evidently her fashion favourites and she wore them quite often on the red carpet. She also started wearing a lot of sheer clothing with lace accents, pushing her risqué self to emerge out of the previously demure avatar. That is not to say that she did not suffer a few fashion faux pas’ but they were very few in number. Largely she got it right in bold colours and a bright red lipsticked mouth.
Post the 2006 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, where she was groped by a fashion designer Isaac Mizraahi, while wearing a fitting Valentino dress in fire truck red, Scarlett came of age where fashion was concerned. And since then she has been photographed wearing scintillating outfit after outfit, wowing her audience every time. Take for example the chic Louis Vuitton Resort dress she wore to Elle’s 14th Annual Women in Hollywood event, the sheer bright red Monique Lhuillier gown she wore to the premiere of her film Vicky Christina Barcelona, the vintage Givenchy dress paired with Christian Dior heels at the Moet and Chandon event – Tribute to Cinemas, the structured dress for the premiere of Iron Man 2 and beautiful black peplum dress by Versace that she wore for the Los Angeles premiere of The Avengers.
This is one sassy lady to follow if you want to look effortlessly chic and channel your inner goddess, so we recommend you follow her sartorial sense closely!
