Scarlett Johansson in Celine at the Venice ‘Marriage Story’ premiere: cute or blah?

76th Venice Film Festival, Italy - 'Marriage Story' Premiere - Red Carpet

Here are some photos of Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver at the Venice Film Festival. They’re there to support and promote Marriage Story, which is really a story of a marriage and divorce told through the wife’s eyes and the husband’s eyes. Scar and Adam play the husband and wife. It’s getting great reviews out of Venice. The fashion and styling, on the other hand… wow. To be fair, Adam Driver looks great and I love him and I would marry and divorce him twenty times. But Scarlett… my goodness.

I covered some fashion photos from Venice yesterday and I noted that Juliette Binoche was bizarrely doing a “wet look” hairstyle. Now I kind of wonder if there’s one big-name hairstylist on call in Venice and he’s like “DAH-ling the wet look is tres chic, don’t you know anything?” And ScarJo believed him, because she thinks she’s the chicest person ever. When really she just wore a boring AF Celine gown and styled it with “drowned rat” hair. ScarJo also attempted an odd look for the photocall too – the striped midriff-baring shirt and palazzo-Capris, both by Michael Kors. Her makeup and hair look fine for the photocall, it’s just the outfit that sucks.

As for the film, it was written and directed by Noah Baumbach, and the story is loosely based on his marriage to and divorce from Jennifer Jason Leigh. ScarJo also said, in the press conference, that she was “going through a divorce” when she first met with Baumbach about the movie, which means she read the script as she and Romain Dauriac were falling apart. She also said she felt “fated” to do this movie. They all say that! They all say that to get Oscars.

    She looks great in that dress but her hair and makeup are terrible. Ditto for the tats. Adam has such a unique face and a great smile.

    • Chica71 says:

      It seems like a variation of a dress she has worn before. This wet hair trend only works at the beach. The ink is horrible, she needed a better artist.

    • SKF says:

      Wow! I didn’t realise she had so many tattoos! And they are generic and boring and unattractive. Poor choices. But I guess it’s her body, her canvas, blah blah blah 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Seraphina says:

      Agreed. That hair style is HARSH. and the tats are boring. But as commenters have said, her body – her canvas.

    • Mustang Sally says:

      She also needs to stop with the adorable, ingenue “pidgeon toe” stance. Last photo of her in pants is a play on the pose she used to do when she was younger. She needs to revamp her game.

      • Redgrl says:

        I think she actually is pigeon-toed – - I don’t think it’s a pose. That said, all these looks are…no. I find her highly over rated as an actress and her continued defence of Woody Allen led me to cancel her ages ago.

    • annakarenina says:

      The dress seems right – very ScarJo, very vavavoom, very old Hollywood – but the hair is tragic.

    • Carol says:

      The red dress is a bit boring but on her it looks terrific. Makeup is ok and I think she can carry off that wet hair look that is all the rage at the moment. Those tats, though, are no bueno.

    • pulchritudinous says:

      Those tattoos are terrible. How has she not paid someone to cover them up or laser them off.

  2. Eliza says:

    The red dress is both cute and blah. It’s flattering but not exciting or interesting.

    The wet hair paired with it is tragic though. Its a custom dress, and there’s about 1-2 hours of makeup there. But you want us to think you just washed and showed up at the event?

  3. Marysia says:

    Oh my, her tattoos look cheap.

    I like the red dress although styling is no bueno.

  4. Lisa says:

    Nope to the hair but the dress looks great.

  5. Sarah says:

    The drew is meh, the hair is terrible. The movie looks interesting but I really cannot stand her selfish, overrated a**. I’ll pass.

  6. Mia4s says:

    The hair’s terrible, it makes it look like she’s had Botox….or at least I think it’s the hair.

    Did her Bowl of Oatmeal get to come to Venice?

  7. aurora says:

    Dress is ok but boring. Hair and make-up though? Awful.
    I don’t understand the top/pants combo at the photo call but hair/make-up is fine.

    • HK9 says:

      I actually like her top/pants combo much better. While I love a good red dress for some reason it looks like an afterthought.

  8. Brunswickstoval says:

    Why is wet hair suddenly a thing? It’s awful.

  9. helonearth says:

    Love the colour of the dress. The wet look always seems worse to me with blonde/light coloured hair – just looks dirty.

    Could have made the whole outfit better with a statement necklace.

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I love the dress, but really dislike her hair. Also, when did she get so many huge tattoos?

  11. StormsMama says:

    I think she looks really good 🤷🏼‍♀️

  12. knotslaning says:

    “To be fair, Adam Driver looks great and I love him and I would marry and divorce him twenty times…” – Me too girl, me too!

  13. Kitten says:

    Just here for Adam Driver. HOT.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Me too. He’s hot but not conventionally (i.e., boringly) handsome.

    • smcollins says:

      I’m right there with you. That man is one tall drink of water that could quench my thirst any day.

    • JanetDR says:

      Yes indeed! I love his voice and his unique looks – not conventional – but good looking! Have you seen his TED talk ? What a good person he is!

  14. Anya says:

    ScarJo who? That Adam Driver is hot stuff. wow!

  15. Pamspam says:

    I have a visceral dislike for her and I’m not even sure why.

  16. Algernon says:

    Has Scarlett Johansson totally forgotten how to style her hair? Ever since she’s been growing it out, it has looked horrible. Also, the photocall look would be a lot cuter with a pair of high waisted, wide leg white trousers.

  17. Case says:

    The slicked hair/dark eyes combo is too severe. And to each their own, but her tattoos are really quite ugly and poorly placed to me.

  18. Jilly says:

    Seriously. Why is the wet hair look trying a thing? It looks awful on everyone ive seen doing it.

  19. Pulplove says:

    “DAH-ling the wet look is tres chic, don’t you know anything?”

    Can’t stop laughing at that, Kaiser, thank you!
    The wet hair looks awful and the make-up only adds to her looking older than she is. The dress is ok, but very unspectacular.

    And what on earth made her decide to combine that shirt with these pants? Oh, well, let’s go back to that sentence above and replace ‘wet look’ with ‘outfit’.

  20. FHMom says:

    Adam Driver is so fine. I never thought ScarJo was georgous. She looks cute in the bottom pic, though. Those tattoos are dug.

  21. Nanea says:

    ScarJo looks nice in that dress… for a tree.
    But her tattoos! That lamb, the eagles *shakes head*

    Adam Driver though!

  22. Jb says:

    I’m a fan of well done and well placed tattoos. Scarlet has neither. Boring looks from an overrated actress

  23. Cidy says:

    Her face looks tight. In the first picture with the red dress it looks like there is plastic wrap over her face. I’m not against any type of plastic surgery whatsoever but I think she should have gotten it done a couple weeks before she did her photo calls because it still looks fresh.

  24. Liz version 700 says:

    Oh my, I have super curly hair that I usually air dry to avoid friz. Her hair looks like mine 20 minutes in. Unfinished, it is all you can see. No wait that is wrong, you also see so so many generic tattoos….so much effort to look so unfinished.

  25. Starkiller says:

    People with receding hairlines shouldn’t wear their hair slicked back like that, unless their goal is to draw more attention, to their receding hairline. And those tattoos are hideous, I have nothing against tattoos, but hers are hideous.

  26. Hey says:

    In the second pic she looks exactly like Léa Seydoux!
    If it wasn’t for her horrible tattoos and the terrible wet-hair style, I think she would be a bomb in the red dress and so cute in the other outfit.

  27. Sharon k says:

    Run Colin Jost run. Do you really want to be her third husband?

  28. J ferber says:

    I don’t like either outfit on her. The guy is hot.

  29. weezle says:

    That young man is cute. I hope that they start writing him better lines in the Star Wars films. As for SJ…it is rare to see anyone over 25 who can pull of the bare midriff thing. She can. I’m downright envious.

  30. tcbc says:

    The standards for white men are so low.

  31. Shannon says:

    Wow. I didn’t realize how many tattoos she had. Which is fine, but so … basic. Meh, her choice. Anyway, I like the red dress, hair was meh but not total wet look (ugh, I cannot with that “look”) , makeup seems a bit harsh to me. But the blue half-shirt and those pants? Who signed off on that? I might have appreciated that outfit in third-grade.
