Scarlett Johansson stepped things up several notches for the premiere of ‘The Avengers’ held in Rome, Italy this weekend.

The actress has been below par to say the least this promo tour, regularly being upstaged by co-star Cobie Smulders.

On this occasion all eyes were on ScarJo wearing this gorgeous Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012 dress, despite her handsome co-stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo beside her.

The first good sign that this is a good dress.

Her digitally engineered wild-flower-print cap-sleeve A-line dress is the commercial version of the heavier, beaded version which took to the runway.

This dress is so very flattering to her womanly figure, the print is eye-catching and this is the most sexy she has looked this promo tour.

Her blonde hair was styled into loose waves and she teamed her look with Bulgari jewels and Jimmy Choo ‘Suki’ sandals.

Let’s hope she keeps to this standard throughout the rest of the tour.
