“Tonight, I look in the mirror and I think, ‘Oh I look glamorous,’ ” Scarlett Johansson said. “But I also wake up at 5:30 to go to work everyday. At that time, I’m just like, ‘Oh man I hope that the hair and makeup people show up today because this isn’t going to work.’ ”
As she strode down the red carpet in a black strapless Louis Vuitton dress, Scarlett Johansson was the very definition of old Hollywood glamour on Monday night at Elle magazine’s Women In Hollywood celebration.
And perhaps it’s fitting that Scarlett’s style has often garnered comparisons to the starlets of generations past, as some have even compared her to Hollywood’s most notable female icon.
“You have been called the modern day Marilyn Monroe,” Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson told Scarlett on the red carpet. “That’s such a title. When you think about that, how do you feel?”
“Well I’m a huge fan of Marilyn,” Scarlett said. “She was always so glamorous and hopefully, it’s not the tragedy that reminds everybody. Certainly, she had an incredible sort of seamless sexiness and grace that was just divine.”
