Met Ball Fug Carpet: Scarlett Johansson


You know how on SNL, when Amy Poehler was still there, they’d do “SERIOUSLY?!?!?! With Seth And Amy”?* I sometimes do a version of that in my head, called “SERIOUSLY?!?!?! With Seth And Amy and Jessica” and it basically consists of whatever I’m thinking about whatever dumb outfit I’m writing about. To wit:

SERIOUSLY??!?!?!!?! You’re in the number one movie in the country and currently on the cover of Vogue and THIS is the best you can do for arguably Fashion’s Biggest Night? SERIOUSLY???!! A dress that manages to be both bland AND weird AND dated and half-assed bedhead? SERIOUSLY??!?!!!! SERIOUSLY.

*I have been informed — correctly — that is is actually REALLY?!?!?! With Seth and Amy. My defense is that in my HEAD it is called SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? because….that is how my brain works. CARRY ON.

    SERIOUSLY??!! I think the dress is gorgeous. She could have done something better with her hair though.

    Side note: I REALLY want to know what lipstick she is wearing in Avengers. That’s all I could think every time they did a close-up.

      Remember how DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS Catherine Zeta-Jones was in Legend of Zorro? I thought the exact same thing about her lipstick, every shot. and she was in a LOT of the movie. her mouth is just perfection. but Scarlett is very very close.

    oh, there was a picture of her somewhere else wearing (I almost typed “whereing” lol) this outside on the red carpet and she looked glowing and amazing and her was.. well, as bad as this, actually, but otherwise she looked flawless.

    In this pic she looks like crap! Domage…

    I never notice what she wears. I can only focus on the are-you-sure-that-isn’t-one-of-those-temporary-tattoos-for-kids tattoo on her arm. Apologies to everyone in the universe, but I think it looks freaking stupid.

    The bit is actually “REALLY?! with Seth and Amy”

    She is actually wearing this very well, but this might not have been the occassion.
    As for the hair…it kinda fits with the tulle popping out underneath.

    Anyway, sorry if this is commonly known, but…whats that thing on her left arm? Is it like permanent and why is it?

      It’s a hideous tattoo. She IS having it removed, I read.

    At least it appears to fit her boobs properly. That’s about all I can say that is nice.

    SERIOUSLY?! I covet the red dress on her right as long as the front isn’t SERIOUSLY?! effed up.

    I think the dress is really pretty. The hair obviously was a “look” that didn’t work.

    i like the top of the dress…very sparkly. like a holiday. her hair looks like that “I just rolled out of some guy’s bed ” tousled look. Not glam.

    I like this dress. The hair could be better, though.

    I like the dress AND her hair! I think she looks great!

    I actually like the dress. It’s sort of classically pretty, the sort of thing a mere mortal could pull off at a fancy benefit or something. But it’s not craze-balls enough for the Met ball, and it can’t figure out how it could possibly fit in with this year’s theme.

    Her hair looks like she totally forgot she needed to book someone to do her hair, and then was just like “oh well, I’ll just wear it like it already is.”

    The hair is a little messy, but I like the dress.

    The dress would be a lot better if it were an actual color and wasn’t vomiting tulle onto the floor. Sleek would have done the trick nicely. If somebody is gonna loan her major jewelry, couldn’t another somebody loan her a hairbrush?

    I saw other pictures where she looked better. But I actually had few problems with this. The Johannson’s are, again, properly wrangled. Her hair and makeup don’t look stiff (again, I saw her hair elsewhere looking less frazzled). And she looks actually happy and girly.

    Far away, I kind of like this. Up close the jewels look kind of glassy and the gold pattern looks like it’s been painted/glazed like a cheap ceramic vase.

    1) Tear off acres of tulle
    2) attach satin bow from Christina Ricci’s dress
    3) done.
    OR
    just tear off the tulle and make sure she’s wearing some fabulous shoes.

    She’s two tankards of ale (in each hand) away from being the world’s fanciest tavern wench.

    I love this, FAB, so sparkly and golden and gorgeous. And then I saw the tulle.

    I love this, just wish she’d tied up her hair. Nice boob wrangling, carry on…

    Regarding the hair: As my Irish friend would say, “She looks like she’s been dragged through a bush backwards.”

    I love this on her. I think she is back to looking hot again! The hair is a bit casual ok…and the netting at the end of the dress is not the best addition but otherwise I think she looks great. The colour suits her and her makeup is fab. Love this.
    PS delighted to hear the tattoo is on its way out!

    When I first saw this pic I thought her face looked very pretty and that the dress’ body fitted her nicely, Usually Rebel Twins included. But the dress style is way too seen in the red carpet, and there is much more tulle than I can stand. Oddly enough, I don’t object the hair as giving some kinkyness to hr look. I agree to whoever above said she’s going back to sexy.

      Sorry “… I don’t object the hair as IT GIVES some kinkyness to HER look”.
