Star Style Wars: Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman battle it out promoting The Other Boleyn Girl


Just in case you didn’t realise, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are currently promoting their new movie, The Other Boleyn Girl. In the movie, Scarlett and Natalie play sisters Mary and Anne Boleyn, rivals for the love of Henry VIII. In real life, they’re currently Red Carpet Rivals in this double-whammy edition of Star Style Wars, which we reckon may just be the toughest one yet.

In the picture on the left, for instance, we’d say ScarJo is the clear winner. Her dress is eye-catching, flattering and makes the most of her, er, obvious assets. Natalie, on the other hand, looks like she realised her dress was see-through minutes before she walked out of the hotel room for the photo shoot, and was forced to tear down the shower curtain and tie it awkwardly to her body in order to try and protect her modesty.

Round one goes to Scarlett, then.

Rewind just a few short hours, though, and we have a different picture entirely. Here, Natalie looks chic and elegant, while Scarlett… is wearing opaque tights with flats. On the red carpet. (OK, the beige carpet, then.) The look is frumpy, dumpy and stumpy (and she’s actually none of these, we hasten to add), so no wonder she looks like she’s thinking about smacking that smug look right off Nat’s face.

Round two goes to Natalie.

Overall, though, who do you think emerges as the winner in the ongoing red carpet battle of ScarJo and Natalie? Who’s the most stylish – so far? Tell us in the comments…

    Never liked Natalie for some reason so I am not completely impartial when I say that Scarlett looks better. I have to admit though that flats are not made for the red carpet!

    Pic 1: Scarlett knocked it out of the park and natalie looks like a rag doll next to her.
    Pic 2: I agree, Scarlett looks gorgeous, but NOT for the red carpet. On the other hand, I don’t think either of them pulled of a “red carpet” look. Nat’s dress is not pressed and she looks like she’s going to the office, not to a glamorous event. If the dress were a different color and fit just a tad more snug…Natalie would have REALLY looked amazing.
    I think ScarJo’s pink number overrules the three other looks.

    Ugh, I’m really not a fan of Scarlett Johannson. I think it’s the way too blonde for her complexion hair. Plus the fact that she claims to be curvy when she is actually a stick figure by most normal peoples standards. Anyway, I still love her purple dress – perhaps not with the scary make-up though. But I think Natalie Portman looks very sophisticated in the second picture. Did anyone notice that she’s wearing Scarlett’s shoes from the first picture?

    Natalie takes it overall for sure. And I actually didn’t hate the first of her dresses.

    Id have to go with Scarlett Johansson all the way. I even like her in the second pic. A bit too casual maybe, but still, I like the high waist line, very nice for her figure. And she so rocks it on the first one, love it!!
