Scarlett Johansson wore Versace to receive the American Cinematheque Award

35th Annual American Cinematheque Awards Honoring Scarlett Johansson

Last night, Scarlett Johansson was honored at the American Cinematheque Awards. She was this year’s recipient of the award, and she brought her husband Colin Jost as her date. This is the first time in a few years that they’ve been on a red carpet together, and it’s her first red carpet since giving birth to her second child, son Cosmo Jost.

Scarlett wore this white Versace suit with a cut-out back. She looked pretty from the front, but I’m not a huge fan of the cut-out back, honestly. She looks a bit tired, probably because she had to fly all the way to LA for this, and she’s spent most of the year at her place in the Hamptons.

I’m happily surprised that Scarlett’s career doesn’t seem to have been affected long-term or short-term by her lawsuit against Disney for the release of Black Widow. The case went into arbitration and Disney quickly settled the issue, because it was clear that Scarlett had backup not only from CAA and SAG-AFTRA (her union), but from women’s groups around the country. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige attended this ceremony and he not only praised Scarlett (and did not mention her lawsuit), he also confirmed that Scarlett will still work with Marvel on a future project as a producer.

    Whoever did her makeup did her dirty, especially under the eyes. I don’t really understand the cut of the white suite- I gather it’s supposed to be flattering, but the amount of the glittering bodysuit exposed makes the tailoring look off. It’s ruched but it looks like it should be buttoned, maybe?

    Also I’m not crazy about tattoos on the red carpet, but tg it’s not a Phoenix.

      It looks like it should meet in the middle, yes. But her under eye area looks as glowing white as all the Instagrammers these days, it used to be such a faux pas to show make up there but I see it all the time now.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Feige’s support is no surprise. He was livid with what Disney did to her and said so at the time. It’s very likely he put tremendous pressure on Disney to settle quickly.

    Cosmo Jost? Good lord, why do you hate your child? I’m kiddding! Sort of. 😜

    I’m not that surprised the lawsuit had little impact. This wasn’t some principled stand. She lost some cash and was pissed. Disney tossed some coins her way and now they can and will pretend it never happened. Simple as that.

      “Cosmo Jost? Good lord, why do you hate your child?”
      I thought I was the only one who thought it was an odd name. I’m sorry, but it sounds like the name of a planet or even a Mandalorian. On second thought, if that’s what they were going for, then it sounds cool.

      • Jaded says:

        I immediately thought of Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld. He was so embarrassed when everyone found out his first name…LOL!

      • Jan90067 says:

        The suit jacket looks two or three sizes too small, fastening at the sides as it does. And the severe hair coupled w/the bad makeup do her no favors.

        Jost’s suit also is ill-fitting as well.

        They both look awful. Could be having a baby at home, but c’mon… you KNOW she has a LOT of help and is not like a mom who has to get up every two hrs w/a newborn, then deal with the older child, make the meals, do the laundry, do the cleaning etc.

        BTW: he said his MOTHER also said something to that extent, after hearing they were naming the baby “Cosmo” lol

  4. Laalaa says:

    Maybe she’s tired because she has a baby?

    I respect her. She deserved the win against Disney, no question

  5. Soni says:

    That suit looks really uncomfortable, and she looks uncomfortable in it.

  6. Noki says:

    I would have never guessed she had such higantic tattoos.

  7. girl_ninja says:

    I think she looks good. I like the cut of the suit but not the cutout in the back.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Agree. Don’t like the back cutout ( it’s too big or not the right shape ),but she has a nice figure in it and the pants fit really well.

  8. Léna says:

    I don’t know why she keeps doing this to her hair. The suit looks uncomfortable from the back, like it’s one size too small but her stylist insisted it’d fit lol

    • milliemollie says:

      That hairstyle does her no favors. I don’t know why she keep wearing it. The cut-out in the back makes no sense to me. And yes, the suit looks too small.
      Maybe the theory that her styling team hates her is true 😀

  9. Barbie1 says:

    She looks great. Bounced back after baby.

  10. Normades says:

    Regardless of what you think of ScarJo that was a pretty boss move. They settled quick AND she’ll still be working with them.

  11. Steph says:

    Is the jacket buttoned to the pants? That’s genius!

  12. Monica says:

    I have a feeling this all looked way better in person.

  13. Sof says:

    The cut-out of the back looks kind of stupid, the tattoo makes it look worse. Maybe cover it up or wear a backless top without the blazer? The front looks great!

  14. Justjj says:

    Cosmo Jost? Yikes. She looks great though.

  15. JanetDR says:

    Make up and hair are doing her no favors at all! She looks very shapely but also uncomfortable in that suit. Maybe it’s the shoes? I can appreciate she might be tired, but the overall look is not good.

  16. lucy2 says:

    She looks good, but the tailoring on the suit seems a bit off, and I dislike the giant cut out on the back.

  17. Jenny says:

    Woody Allen. Zero respect.

  18. SISYPHUS says:

    She’s fabulous. Deserved win.
