Scarlett Johansson In Prada – ‘The Avengers’ London Premiere

Scarlett Johansson was joined by her co-stars on the red carpet in London tonight for the premiere of her latest movie ‘The Avengers’ held at the Vue Westfield.

The actress donned a Prada dress.

Her strapless peplum dress featured a black bodice embroidered with red-and-blue floral details and a black-and-blue cut-out lace-effect pencil skirt.

This look is a vast improvement on the one she wore to the Moscow premiere, but the peplum looks like an afterthought and the string hanging off her hemline makes me itch.

Red Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps, a ‘Heidi’ braid, Bulgari jewels and a rich red lip colour completed her look.

I don’t hate this look, but I’m not wowed by it either.

I’m still wishing for a return of the ScarJo of old and some more colourful red-carpet looks.

Let’s move on from the Black Widow references.

    I only wish I can style her for red carpet events.

    ScarJo always astonishes me.How would someone mess up such a great body/face/features with such depressing looks. I just don’t get it. Can someone please explain it?
    She’s got what every hollywood actress wants (lips,boobs,bum) and she manages to waste it.

    Not wowed.

    I like the top and the skirt but NOT together. looks like a cross between Heidi and a smurf.

    If it was a tour for a kiddies film…yes. But she appears to be killing off her role as ‘sexiest woman’ in favour of something more demure with these looks.

    I want this from her:

    The funny thing is as I looked back her body of work, there were very few looks in the last two or three years that I really enjoyed.

      Swoons at that picture…those were the days

        She is just serving it. It’s not hard to look incredible in Elie Saab, but you can tell from the body language, the hair, the makeup that she wanted to “turn this mother out.” And that’s what she did.

        I don’t know what she’s doing these days…

      Wonderful! Thank heavens for Amber Heard who’s picked up where she’s left off…

    i loooveee this dress i want it for myself! that said, i wish she had sexed it up a bit as well. maybe with some bombshell hair and took her hands off her hips like that it makes her look so stiff.

  9. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) April 20, 2012 at 00:58 #

    I literally gasped. LOATHE EVERYTHING about this look.

  10. Rebecca Z April 20, 2012 at 00:26 #

    I like the dress, tho the peplum is odd. Not a fan of her hair or makeup.

  11. gabis April 19, 2012 at 23:40 #

    I think she better fire her hair stylist just about now. Everything else about her look is beareable at least.

  12. EmmaWoodhouse April 19, 2012 at 23:26 #

    I’m still rooting for her to pull off something glorious! Don’t give up hope yet! 😀
    This isn’t boring, but it is bad. 🙁

    • Fashion Critic April 20, 2012 at 00:04 #

      I’ve given up…I did after Russia.

      To be honest I don’t even thing Elie Saab can save her…she just not into it.

  13. fromchi-town April 19, 2012 at 21:35 #

    The dress would have been better without the peplum. Also I don’t like her hair at all – it somehow makes it look matronly. And I hate the lip color too.

  14. Yeliz April 19, 2012 at 21:30 #

    “I don’t hate this look, but I’m not wowed by it either.” ITA. But it’s definitely better than the Moscow premiere.

  15. shap_half April 19, 2012 at 21:14 #

    I know this is going to sound a bit harsh, but she looks like an idiot. Maybe it’s just the photos, but ugh I hate this look.

    • Dee April 19, 2012 at 21:45 #

      It sounds harsh, but then this IS some brainless piece of styling.

  16. Vidhya April 19, 2012 at 21:13 #

    Everything here screams old lady here. Her hair is just killing me

    She’s a beautiful woman, I like her hair and makeup and honestly, I’ve had no problems with her promo tour so far.
    I just don’t understand why she loves those knee-length cocktail numbers so freaking much. They make her look underdressed.

  18. Nat April 19, 2012 at 21:05 #

    “I don’t hate this look, but I’m not wowed by it either.”

    p.s. Did her doctor order her not to wear any floor-lenght gowns?
    I’m confused.

    • Tina April 19, 2012 at 23:27 #

      I was wondering about that too. She seems to have developed a dislike for long gowns…

  19. Hannah April 19, 2012 at 21:02 #

    All of her looks are just so forgettable, it’s really sad because she did used to have some great red carpet moments. What I really don’t get about this look is the hair & makeup, they don’t make sense by themselves adn especially with the dress.
    Also, the peplum doesn’t work at all on her body type because it just end where her hips are and so the effect is lost and it’s not flattering.

    • gurlygurl April 20, 2012 at 08:43 #

      Agreed! It’s a bit Heidi in the hills meets Hollywood glamourpuss on the hair and make up. Don’t even get me started on the confused mess that is the dress.

  20. Christine April 19, 2012 at 20:59 #

    Better than the last two outings but still nothing special. I love her make up.

    Where is the Scarjo we know and love?

  21. Riley April 19, 2012 at 20:58 #

    I like bodice up. Peplum down it’s awful. ScarJo of Yore is nomore.

  22. robbie April 19, 2012 at 20:57 #

    if only she had sexed it up a little. it is a good look but nothing mind blowing.
