Scarlett Johansson in Balmain at the Spirit Awards: cute, retro or blah?

Actress Scarlett Johansson wearing a Balmain dress and Hanut Singh earrings arrives at the 2020 Film...

Scarlett Johansson remains an awards season loser after the Independent Spirit Awards. She even lost Best Actress to Renee Zellweger at the Spirit Awards, which is crazy, I guess, although Judy did look like a somewhat inexpensive film. ScarJo has been taking the losses in stride, perhaps she’s even genuinely happy to be invited to the party (this are her first-ever Oscar nominations). So ScarJo is in a good mood, which might explain her hair – for years, we’ve been waiting for her to go back to longish blonde hair and here we are. She looks great! The Balmain dress is not great, but whatever. She seems like she was having a nice time.

Renee Zellweger in Dior. This is good? It actually makes me curious about what she’ll wear to the Oscars. While I haven’t been a fan of Renee’s drunk-Alabaman awards-season tour, I have to admit that her style has almost always been on-point. Renee might end up as one of the best-dressed women at the Oscars.

Elisabeth Moss in a Co suit and Theory blouse. Honestly, I love this? It’s not for every event, but I like that she looks like part of the Reservoir Dogs crew for the Spirit Awards.

Mindy Kaling in a very colorful Carolina Herrera. I don’t hate the print, but I’m not sure about the cut here?

    Love Moss’s look but would love it more if it was a bit more fitted-looking. It looks too big.

    Mindy’s dress reminds me of why I don’t wear floral dresses anymore — they make me feel like I’m wearing a tablecloth.

    I don’t like Scar Jo’s dress but her hair does look nice at this length.

  2. Laura says:

    Mindy looks great and looks like she’s feeling herself. Love it!

  3. Sasha says:

    Renee looks fantastic! Her face looks settled and more like her old self. She looks lovely 😊

  4. FHMom says:

    Renee looks great. ScarJo looks so much better with the longer hair, but I don’t like the center part. I don’t care for her, but she was really good in A Marriage Story. Maybe she’s thrilled to be nominated for 2 roles even though she won’t win anything.

  5. minx says:

    I hate that crossed-leg pose, does ScarJo have to pee? Moss’ outfit is very cute and I love her hair. Mindy looks fab.

  6. Smalls says:

    Thank the hair gods, she is growing out that nightmare mom bob!!!!

  7. Elisa says:

    Scarlett looks great from the neck up, but her dress is awful. IMO the only good outfit here is Zellweger’s.

  8. Sass says:

    What…the FCK is ScarJo wearing.

    Honestly the fashion lately has all been pretty appalling, with a few “not so bad” stand outs but nothing great.


  9. Gabby says:

    Renee’s outfit is great, love it! My favorite look from her this awards season by far, sophisticated, beautiful.
    Mindy also looks great-again, considering big dresses are THE look this year, she’s pulling it off beautifully here. Gorgeous makeuo, beautiful hair. A+
    Scarjo, I like her hair better, love the pink clutch. That dress is another NO from her, I almost always dislike her red carpet looks.

    Renee has been looking great all awards season, so I hope she keep it up for the Oscars. Especially since she is the favorite to win.

  11. Emilia says:

    Scarlett didn’t lose to Renee because she wasn’t even nominated. None of the marriage story cast were nominated because they received the Robert Altman awards.

  12. JanetDR says:

    I like ScarJo’s look here, but not as much as Renee’s. I adore Mindy, but hate the sleeves on that dress especially .

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    ScarJo is blah and Moss’ suit would be great if it were two sizes smaller.

  14. June says:

    I liked Renée and Elizabeth’s pantsuits. Charming. Mindy’s loud print dress was not my taste. I do not think it was very flattering on her. Took away from her lovely face. All I could see was that LOUD print.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Mindy’s dress doesn’t seem very Carolina Herrera to me, but I admit I don’t keep up on fashion trends.

  15. A Fan says:

    Scarlett’s dress is not my thing personally, but it looks fine on her and seems to fit the venue.

    She looks SO much better with her hair down – the pulled back bun she’s been sporting lately is NOT flattering for her face.

    [*In the end, she does look better in motion than in photographs.*]

  16. Lisa says:

    Renee looks great.

  17. kd says:

    Mindy needed better shoes. Just say no to black pumps!!! Maybe a funky ankle boot would have been a better choice . She is the DSW spokeswoman after all.

  18. Marigold says:

    I love Mindy, and I think the print was an odd-but-flattering choice because she looks so beautiful in bright colors. Those hideous puff sleeves ruin the whole dress for me, though. It’s a weird shape for the dress itself, and it really detracts from Mindy’s figure. She is a gorgeous woman, but they don’t ever seem to know what to do with her.

  19. Naddie says:

    Women in suits forever.
