Scarlett Johansson in black Saint Laurent at the Tonys: cheap-looking or cute?

Here are some more photos from last night’s Tony Awards! You can read some coverage of who won what and how here at People Mag, and here’s a full list of the winners. We’re just doing the fashion for the most part because I don’t think anyone around here watched it. So, here is Scarlett Johansson last night. You may remember, ScarJo has already WON a Tony. She won a few years ago when she was doing that Arthur Miller revival. She also did a revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof this year, although I heard it was not great and the ticket sales were meh. ScarJo wore this Saint Laurent mini-dress/tuxedo thing. I don’t hate the idea of it, but the execution is… cheap-looking. I think it’s the lace thing on the top, with the ruffle. It looks like ScarJo paired a really great cropped tuxedo jacket with a cheap mall dress. Plus, that lipstick shade sucks on her.

I think I’m becoming a major Zachary Quinto fan. He was one of the best parts of Star Trek Into Darkness, and that man can wear the hell out of suit and tuxedo. Quinto’s tux last night was Dior Homme. Perfection.

I have to say, Jake Gyllenhaal looks really good in his midnight-blue tux. He needs to ease up on the “I’m smoldering” squint though.

And finally, here’s Sigourney Weaver in a dress that I’m absolutely positive I’ve seen on her before. Whatever, she’s awesome. She can wear repeats if she wants.

    Every photo I’ve seen of Scarlett at this event has her mouth open and dead eyes. Is she on something?

    • HappyMom says:

      I think she’s just really, really hungry.

    • Spooks says:

      Every movie I’ve seen her in, she was horrible. How on earth did she win a Tony?

      • Tapioca says:

        Well, you see that open mouth and those dead eyes…


        (She’s harmless to me and I think she looks nice here.)

      • Maya says:

        Maybe she’s one of those actors who’s better on stage than film. That’s possible, right? I mean, the reverse is often true – actors who are great in movies can’t cut it onstage, so maybe Scarlett is the opposite. Although personally, I’ve never found her to be that bad an actress…but I feel the same way about Keira Knightley, who everyone else seems to think is awful, so clearly I have really low standards or something!

      • Spooks says:

        I think Keira is quite good, her toothy smile tends to be a little annoying, but she’s much better than Scarlett.

      • MsGoblin says:

        My theory of her Tony award is that she brought publicity to Broadway when they were being eaten alive by the economic circumstances of 2009/10.

        IMO, this girl does not have many tools in her acting toolbox.

    • RocketMerry says:

      I think she just looks so severe here; the dark make-up, the serious outfit… and yes, the dead expression, really make her look like she’s at a funeral.

      Maybe she had a really crappy week? She’s usually very bubbly.

    • Kiddo says:

      Maybe she’s a mouth breather.

    • Raquel says:

      She’s a pretty girl, but I always get the impression that she’s trying to look more beautiful than she already is. To the point where it’s just sad–can’t she be happy that she’s already very pretty? I think that’s where the ‘sexy?’ fish mouth thing comes in…

  2. Marianne says:

    I watched most of it. I missed the last half an hour but I was so tired.

  3. allons-y alonso says:

    That is some rough makeup on ScarJo. And for goodness sakes woman, close your mouth when you’re having your picture taken!

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Vacant eyes and mouth open. That’s ScarJo’s default look.

    • littlestar says:

      I was thinking the same thing. She has a case of JLO Face (or JLO Syndrome).

    • carol says:

      really? I actually think the lipstick shade really suits her and the makeup was well done! it’s her facial expression that ruins it.

  4. muffin says:

    love her outfit but she looks mouth-breather’ish. jake looks frumpy, but always does to me.

    • Kiddo says:

      Oh sorry, I didn’t see your comment about mouth breathing.
      At any rate, my grandma would say, “Close your mouth, you’re attracting flies”. I’m not really sure why.

  5. MsAubra says:

    She still gives me the gay…with her mouthy try hard self! lmao

  6. Mia 4S says:

    Scarlet looks…off. Her hair is terrible in those Captain America sequel photos too.

    Quinto is/was/always shall be the man. Also I saw Star Trek again a week ago and still can’t get over how ridiculously adorable he and Cris Pine are as a team.

    Jake had a brief period where he did it for me…that passed…it’s not come back.

  7. lisa says:

    scarlett’s dress is very bebe. i can see any kartrashian wearing it but theirs would be 2 sizes too small.

  8. smee says:

    I could see one pic with a slack jaw, dead-eyed look, but every one? SJ must be doing it on purpose. I do love that tux jacket, but that dress does look like a something from Wet Seal.

    Sig Weaver looks great in that dress – repeat or not – it’s a nice color and flattering cut for her.

  9. Dedrie says:

    My sexy life is too sexy.. I am a mouth breather, too famous, talented.. so tiring.. saaad…

  10. QQ says:

    Come on now! That’s Just nitpicking on that vapid Bitch’s extraordinary looks, she looks good, there is nothing new or earthshattering about that (although that tuxedo jacket is kind of amazing)

    Quinto is just delicious and hitting this fashion thing on all cylinders!

    • minime says:

      ye, I have to agree with you. I don’t fancy her that much, but she looks gorgeous (as almost always)…still she could close her mouth for the pictures.

    • Annie says:

      She kind of looks like she’s auditioning for a Deborah Harry role. ’80′s hard, which was a style back then. Not so much now.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I think she looks stylish here and I love that jacket but her facial expressions are making me LOL.

  11. Maxine says:

    Quinto looks painfully awkward here. His tux isn’t just the wrong size (or poorly altered), it somehow makes him look like a human bobble head doll. The skinny lapels are simply awful. He’s really a better looking guy than this.

  12. Jenna says:

    I kind of like it! *shrug* Except all the pictures of her with her mouth open, I don’t know what that is. o_O

    Add me to the new fans of Quinto. He started converting me on AHS and won me over with STiD! :D

  13. K-rock says:

    She’s doing J-lo mouth and sucky cheeks. Been done to death. Try something new already!

  14. Shelly says:

    I think this is the best Scarlett’s looked in a while. I love her hair longer!

  15. Beep says:

    Close your mouth, Scarlett.

  16. Hipocricy says:

    I don’t care about Scarlett and her opened mouth !

    OMG, Sigourney ! I love this woman to death. Look at that 60+ years old lady !

    She was Melanie Griffith’s boss on Working Girl…and look how Melanie turned out compared to her…

  17. Tessa says:

    I hate when fake tanner collects on the knees. It makes her look older, like she has patchy dry old lady skin. Not a good look.

  18. Christina says:

    I quite like Scarlett’s outfit – a rarity for me – but her make-up is awful. The foundation is at least a shade too dark for her and her attempt to work a dark lipstick look just isn’t working.

    Sigourney Weaver, by contrast, looks and is amazing.

  19. Joy says:

    Jake is giving me some Blue Steel realness here.

  20. Miss Kiki says:

    As usual, Quinto is looking stellar. By the same token, regular as clockwork ScarJo is annoying the sh*t out of me.

    • Marty says:

      Can we also talk about how she’s being a total c-u-next-thursday and sueing that author over having Scarlett’s namer in her book?

  21. Sabrine says:

    One shade lighter on the lipstick would have softened Scarlett’s face considerably. Otherwise she looks lovely.

  22. MissNostalgia says:

    I’ll make this brief: Scarjo’s hair looks great; the lipstick is too much for her huge lips and her face looks strangely “horsey”. Sig Weaver is awesome, period.

  23. pantanlones en fuego says:

    I’m just here to say that I want Zachary Quinto to be my gay boyfriend. That is all.

  24. ramie says:

    She looks gorgeous!

  25. Nev says:

    I think this is the best she’s EVER looked…she should keep this look!!

  26. Madriani's Girl says:

    I must be one of the only ones in the world who think ScarJo is in no way attractive at all. She looks kind of piggish to me, no offense to swine.

  27. Potato_Chip says:

    She looks like Alexa Rae Joel’s lil sister.

  28. Ncboudicca says:

    Has Scarlett done something to her face? Maybe she’s just thinner?

  29. skuddles says:

    I love this hair color on ScarJo – looks very natural and works beautifully with her skin tone.

    ♥ Sigourney Weaver!

  30. ladybert62 says:

    (1) She needs a decent haircut
    (2) She needs to shut her mouth – hanging open is NOT sexy
    (3) The lipstick color makes her look trashy
    (4) The dress is OK

  31. Norman says:

    It looks like the weight of her lawsuit is wearing on her with her distant gaze and appearance of not wanting to be at the event.

  32. HeyHey says:

    i think she looks great, but the pictures do seem like they caught her in an off moment. I really like the jacket but the black dress is kind of boring.

  33. Grant says:

    Oh, I love, love, love this. And that’s coming from someone who rarely finds her to be worth the hype.

  34. Kosmos says:

    Is it me, but why do I not care much for Scarlett? I saw the Tony’s and yes, she had that look you see here, gag. And she constantly flipped her hair around and when she spoke, you thought, what a little snot…gee, maybe she’s really a warm, lovely person, but I just haven’t been able to catch that.

  35. Haystacks says:

    Girl is looking tweaked. I hate it when people start surgically altering their face – it looks so creepy.
