While promoting her soon-to-be-released movie The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson has been showing off a fascinating new tattoo. The New York City native is giving a permanent shout out to her hometown with a delicate design on her wrist: a thin bracelet with a single charm that says ” I <3 NY.” Click through to see it up close!
At last night’s L.A. premiere of The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson kept with the superhero theme of the evening and rocked some seriously booty-kicking hair.
TheGloss is one daily must-reads (right up there with the NY Times). We love the site’s witty approach to style and its smart and irreverent voice. We like the writing so much, in fact, that we’ll be featuring one of their posts each week here on the Birchbox blog.
You know how celebrities love to spill their beauty secrets, even when they have no idea what they’re talking about? Scarlett Johansson is the latest famous to engage in this particular kind of PR, telling Style.com that one of her favorite things to do for her skin is an all-natural honey facial.
“I use Manuka honey,” she said. “You just warm your face so that your pores are open (you can steam your face right after getting out of the shower), and then you just take a spoon and apply the honey directly to your face and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities.”
Well – if it’s good enough for Scarlett, it’s good enough for me.

There must be something in the water in Hollywood: yet another starlet has decided to make the switch from blonde to red. Scarlett Johansson attended the White House Correspondent’s Dinner over the weekend sporting a lovely shade of crimson. This makes her the third, by our count, to jump onto the redhead bandwagon (right behind Blake Lively and Drew Barrymore). Since nobody likes a copycat, all three ladies have taken the auburn trend in different directions and made this color their own.
Ruby Red: Very appropriate given that her first name is Scarlett, the actress chose a striking and dramatic shade, with a hint of plum. This is a hard hue to pull off, and we’re thoroughly impressed with her act of hair rebellion.
Strawberry: Blake Lively’s light and airy interpretation channels The Little Mermaid but perfectly suits her fair skin and soft features.
Burgundy: Certainly a trendsetter when it comes to hair (Barrymore was one of the first to adopt the ombre look, too), Drew went with an auburn hue, accentuating her light green eyes and naturally rosy cheeks.
Whose hair do you like best? Tell us in our poll below!
At last night’s Oscars there were plenty of red carpet triumphs (and blunders—I won’t get into that), but the prettiest looks of the evening were all well complimented with to-die-for hairstyles. I’ve rounded up my eight favorites of the night. Click through and scroll to the bottom to cast your vote for the best hair!
Mila Kunis: She blew me away on all fronts: her dress, her makeup, her physique. If I had a pick for overall prettiest of the evening, I would absolutely choose her—no doubt about it. I especially loved how the star’s romantic updo perfectly complimented her super-feminine Ellie Saab stunner. Bravo, Mila! Bravo!
