Get the Look: Scarlett Johansson

Published
There's a reason why Scarlett Johansson always gets cast as a vamp or a vixen. She's all curves, lips, and creamy skin. Sure, it's the hand genetics has dealt her, but it's become her calling card because she knows how to emphasize it well. She's almost always wearing something vintage-inspired, looking just like an erstwhile Hollywood starlet. The media has bequeathed her the "Modern-day Marilyn", which she embodies with glamorous clothing that shows off her famous hourglass shape. This is good news for those of us that don't possess a supermodel physique, since Scarlett's signature defined, cinched waist can be universally flattering.

To really emulate that heart stopping figure, though, it's best to get the basics right first. Start with a great push up bra. (When does Scarlett not look hoisted and well supported?) With this Infinity Edge Push-Up Bra from Victoria's Secret for $42-$48 (depending on size), you'll be locked, loaded, and ready to go. And if you need a little more oomph, try these Commando Takeouts Silicone Gel Breast Enhancers ($48, BareNecessities.com). Finally, give your waist some further definition too with this Miraclesuit "Inches Off Waist" Cincher for $34 at Macy's.

Now you're ready for the exterior layer. One of our favorite evening looks is the pictured flesh-colored silk tulle cocktail dress Scarlett wore to a charity ball. This As U Wish Ballerina Dress in Ivory for $68 at Nordstrom replicates the dress exceedingly well; but to ensure the look doesn't become too tween-like, pump it up with a touch of sophistication. These deep, Jessica Simpson Bacton Pumps in Diable Red ($84.95, Shoebuy.com) and Starburst Post Earrings ($13, FunToFineJewelry.com) lend the outfit a mature edge.

Scarlett is also known to compliment her milky-colored skin with silky fabrics and saturated colors. Introduce a bit of glamour to your daytime wardrobe with this shiny, satiny Ruffled Satin Blouse, $24.80 at Forever 21. Wear it with slim jeans, boots, and (if you're adventurous) a tuxedo jacket (like this Ukki Dandy Short Tuxedo Jacket from YesStyle.com for $65), which Scarlett has been seen wearing for both casual and formal occasions. She is, after all, the "Modern-day Marilyn".

But above all, to aptly finish off any Scarlett-inspired look, you need bee-stung lips. A slightly less painful way of going about it: DuWop Lip $16 at Sephora. It's a best seller and will plump your pucker without surgery. Because if Scarlett represents anything, it's a natural, glowing femininity. Kudos to her fashion sense and figure, that let's us know looking like a real woman is ten times better than having an ice cube for lunch everyday.
