Slacker Chic of the Week: Scarlett Johansson

For my money, Scarlett Johansson is easily the most stunning creature on the planet. I mean absurdly stunning. But that's not what makes her so awesome. This gorgeous gal didn't start off in Hollywood as a beautiful bombshell, but rather as a child actor. At times it's easy to forget that this commanding actress began her career in films like "If Lucy Fell" and "The Horse Whisperer", seeing as how Scarlett has made the transition from child star to leading lady more flawlessly than almost any other actress since Jodie Foster. However, after her breakout role in "Lost in Translation", critics and audiences began to take notice of this new breed of starlet-one that offered something her peers didn't: a mixture of maturity and youth with a heaping helping of Hollywood glamour. While most of her counterparts have been busy living it up at Hyde and Butter, ScarJo prefers to keep it classy, attending red carpet functions dressed to the nines, and keeping her reputation as a serious actress flawlessly intact. Perhaps this is why, at the young age of 23, Scarlett has garnered more respect from the industry than most actors do in a lifetime. Her recent projects have included recording an album of Tom Waits covers entitled "Anywhere I Lay My Head" and making her directorial debut for the upcoming movie "New York, I Love You".
While Scarlett is known for her many achievments in the entertaiment field, she is known for her sexy shape as well. In an industry that is obsessed with becoming as thin as one can possibly become without dying, Scarlett has become the postergirl for bring back the hourglass figure made popular by Marilyn Monroe. It is this healthy, normal, curvy shape that has been celebrated by popular mags such as Maxim and Esquire (among others), awarding ScarJo with the title of "Sexiest Woman Alive" on several occassions.
Although many think it is Scarlett's shape that makes her sexy, I beg to differ. While it certainly doesn't hurt the matter, I think it is the absolute confidence she exudes that makes her so sexy and magnetic. In fact, my favorite pictures of her aren't the ones where she's dressed in less, but where she's dressed more masculine. She makes a tuxedo look hotter than any chick in lingerie. And that confidence, coming from within, makes her the sexiest woman on Earth.

The comment box under the LV lawsuit story was not working, so I must put this here:

It's called Intellectual Property Rights. It's not about feelings and opinions, it's about facts and the law. The Louis Vuitton company owns the rights to their logo and likeness. With all the legal trouble this artist is in, she should hope to have lawyers who would know better.

I do understand where you are coming from, but when it comes to art and the expression of it, I feel like it's a little George Orwell 1984 to tell an artist that they can or cannot say something through their music, paintings, scultpture, writings, etc. When it comes to replications of brand names, if people thought they were buying LV it would absolutely be in the wrong, but in this case they know it's not LV but rather a statement regarding all big name brands. I do realize they own the rights to their logo and likeness-for me it is sticky. I am glad I do not have to make a judgement on the case!
