Scarlett Johansson in Balmain at the UK ‘Ultron’ premiere: fabulous or fug?


Here are some photos of Scarlett Johansson at last night’s London premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Am I crazy for liking this? ScarJo isn’t giving me budget Elsa Pataky vibes anymore, and I’m sort of enjoying her crazy hair and this Balmain Fall 2015 jumpsuit. It reads like a gown but it actually is a jumpsuit with very wide legs. The multi-colored fabric could have gone either way, but the black border at the top and the black at the waist brings everything together and makes this look sophisticated rather than dated. There’s only one styling mistake here: the Bvlgari earrings. They don’t work with this jumpsuit.

While doing the big press conference for Ultron yesterday, ScarJo fielded some questions about why there isn’t a stand-alone Black Widow movie. While I appreciate the fact that there’s an appetite for female superhero films, those questions should be directed towards Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, right? NOT ScarJo? Here’s Scarlett trying to say that yes, she would love a Black Widow movie but still, she’s a Company Woman.

Whenever anyone goes on and on about how Scarlett is super-brilliant, I’m always like “Really? Her?” Don’t get me wrong, she’s smarter than the average starlet and she’s managed to fashion an excellent career for herself. But you know she like you know says you know like a lot and I sometimes you know get the you know feeling that like people just want to like paint her as you know the bombshell with you know a brain.

    The best she’s looked in months. I’m still mad at that gross green dress she wore to the Oscars and her bad hair & makeup that night.

    • Hudson Girl says:

      Ugh. Reading comprehension fail, I thought this was a dress. It looks gross when she’s walking- very early 90′s Palazzo pants.

    • oneshot says:

      I actually loved the crazy green dress and even more insane necklace. It takes major fashion nous to wear something like that, and imo it worked precisely because of her short hair – with long hair and no necklace it would have been a bit Boobs Legly, but with short hair it was futuristic Poison Ivy greatness.

  2. Jag says:

    Love it, but would love it more were it a dress.

    • embertine says:

      Agreed. I actually loved it on her until I heard the dread word JUMPSUIT, but now… ehhhh.

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    Her hair looks dope as hell!

  4. DiDi says:

    You Know the last paragraph of the you know article you know made me like you know like you know loughing aloud you know…

    • amanda says:

      I thought I was reading it wrong at first! lol

      i think she looks gorgeous but I could see it looking a bit weird when walking.

  5. Greek chic says:

    She lost so much weight. Her face was fuller, she never had these defined cheekbones.

    Short hair suits her.

  6. paola says:

    I love the hair. The jumpsuit not so much.

    She is not the brightest woman alive but she is far better than many many other women. And she is not a famewhore which I like.
    (ahem Lindsay Lohan who just posted ‘you’re a donkey’ in arabic instead of ‘you’re beautiful’)

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    Um no. It’s too much. The fabric, the pattern, the jumpsuit. No.

  8. MrsBPitt says:

    I really liked Scarlet’s fashion for this premiere…and I am surprised at myself…something like this usually wouldn’t be my style, but it works on Scarlet…agree abut the earrings though…maybe some hoops would have looked better, but I don’t know, I am no fashionista! I wish Scarlet had helped Elizabeth Olsen dress, then maybe she would look like a 80 year old grandma!

  9. **sighs** says:

    I actually really like this. Shocking.

  10. A.Key says:

    Fug to the max, but her face is amazing.

  11. ann says:

    Fug. Her hairdo there looks like she was walking in a tornado. Hopefully she grows is longer

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Sorry, but now when I see that “do”, all I think of is Miley Cyrus and that is NOT a good thing.

  12. INeedANap says:

    Did she slim down more than usual, or did she get a nose job? She normally had a bit of a button, pug-ish nose, but it’s looking slimmer. Makeup maybe?

    • Cankles says:

      She has lost quite a lot of weight, but I think the nose is down to contouring makeup.

      I don’t particularly care for her ensemble, but it’s very flattering, and I would like to know how she’s pulling it off–I’m the same height as her and a similar build, and I’m 99% sure that if I wore a wide-legged jumpsuit, I would look like a foot.

  13. sills says:

    I’d have liked it more if it were a dress that stopped around the knees. With some black strappy heels, could’ve been kickier and sexier.

    And I’d be meh on that hairstyle for almost anyone else and especially myself, but somehow on her it looks really fresh and just seems to bring volume and energy to all her looks. Love it.

  14. danielle says:

    I think shes doing better with the hair, I hated it when she first cut it, but she’s rocking it here. Why did she steal Natalie Dormer’s smile tho? (not that I don’t love it – on Natalie Dormer.)

  15. Mar says:

    She really has come into her own- loving her looks lately!

  16. Shijel says:

    She looks harsh. But then the same thing happened to me when I shaved my hair off. Suddenly I was all cheekbones, cold stare and teeth.

  17. Lucy says:

    Lovely. She can be hit or miss, but when she’s hit, it’s all the way.

  18. Me too says:

    Love the outfit. That hairstyle is just tragic and the weight loss ages her significantly. She’s lost her ‘it’ factor and all sexiness IMO.

  19. Sos101 says:

    She’s still giving me Pataky vibes. Loving the jumpsuit, it just works in a wonderfully crazy way

  20. kri says:

    I love her hair. Also, she is almost always tailored impeccably. For me, it’s the details. Looking good, Scarlett!

  21. oneshot says:

    see, now THIS is a woman who’s going to go down as an iconic Hollywood beauty. When she looks this good even in a crazy-ass short haircut and jumpsuit (not to mention that insane green Versace from the Oscars), she is, without question, unbelievably hot.

  22. Sofia says:

    Humm… She is trying to pull of some edgy look and she doesn’t look bad but I don’t believe in it. Imo it doesn’t suit her or at least it doesn’t suit her from what I know from her. And I’m sorry, the dress looks cheap, something I would see at Primark for $10 ^_^

  23. serena says:

    Seems like she lost a bit of weight, at least to her face. I really like her Black Widow’s look, I think she’d look fine with those hair! Also I would love a movie with BW as the main character!

  24. enike says:

    this jumpsuit-dress is awful.
    the black lines look sporty, like lines in a gym wear, the dress summery, it doesnt go well together

  25. kitty-bye says:

    Fab! Love the hair & dress.
