Scarlett Johansson: A Fashion Icon Ahead of Her Time Captured in Timeless Throwback Photos

The performer has always displayed her unique sense of fashion, unafraid to sport daring haircuts and don extravagant ensembles.

Back in 1996, a young celebrity had a stunning appearance at the premiere reception of “Manny Lo”. She exuded Delia’s model vibes with her faux fur-trimmed cardigan, strappy heels, and deep brown lipstick. The outfit was just perfect for the occasion, making her stand out from the crowd.

Back in 1997, at the Independent Spirit Awards, the fashion-forward star made a bold statement with her outfit. She accessorized with turquoise hair clips, rocked neon green platform sandals, and donned a sunshine-yellow crochet dress. It was definitely a bright idea that caught everyone’s attention.

Scarlett wasn’t trying to become a part of Destiny’s Child as the fifth member. She simply took part in a photo shoot with the original members LeToya Luckett, Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and LaTavia Roberson during a Tommy Hilfiger Jeans event held at Macy’s in New York City in 1998.

At a Tommy Jeans event, the Tommy Girl donned a trendy anorak and paired it with wide-legged pants in the early 2000s. This look was captured by The Life Picture Collection via Getty.

Do you have a picture with your best friend wearing the same outfit as you did in 1998? Well, Scarlett Johansson and her actress pal Jena Malone have a similar picture, but they were attending The Hollywood Reporter’s Youngsters Awards at Universal Studios, while you were probably on your way to a school dance in the gym.

In 2001, at the Los Angeles premiere of the movie “The Others”, the actress rocked some early-aughts trends that included a center-parted shoulder-length hair, umber-colored eye shadow that made her blue eyes pop, and a crop top/pointy-toe shoe combination.

Olivia Rodrigo, the fast-rising star, made headlines when she arrived in NYC for her SNL performance wearing a bralet outfit that unintentionally revealed her nipple and running shorts. However, her fashion sense has been remarkable since she was just 16 years old. At The Beach premiere in 2000, Olivia attended with her twin brother Hunter, donning a stunning camel-colored coat matched with a chic scarf and headband, proving to be a style sophisticate even at a young age.

During the 36th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2001, a budding actress, accompanied by Thora Birch, showed off her golden highlights and accessorized with dainty gold hoop earrings at the premiere of Ghost World.

Attempting to copy this particular hairstyle is not recommended, but the celebrity (seen here with Mena Suvari at a fashion event in Los Angeles back in 2003) was able to successfully sport a mullet.

During the 2003 Fashion Week, Scarlett was spotted alongside some of L.A.’s most prominent It girls, including Summer Phoenix, Heather Matarazzo, and Rosario Dawson. Her outfit at the time perfectly embodied the fashion trends of that year.

In 2001, Johansson attended the 24 Hour Play celebrity benefit event and kept things casual with a simple camisole, skirt, and hoops. Despite dressing down, she still exuded a cool and trendy vibe as she enjoyed a night out in New York City.

Looking absolutely fabulous, the celebrity dared to don a uniquely sparkling and daringly plunging outfit at the Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony in 2003, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Talk about having some serious swag!

Djamilla Rosa Cochran’s doll-like appearance at Cynthia Rowley’s 2004 fashion show was enhanced by her barrel curls, pink lips, and candy-striped parasol.

The actress exudes classic Hollywood glamour, as seen in her stunning emerald Alberta Feretti dress, paired with finger waves and bold red lips at the Governor’s Ball after the Oscars in 2004.

In 2005, Scarlett Johansson turned heads at the Golden Globes afterparty with her vintage hairstyle and bold lipstick, which perfectly complemented her stunning bronze Roland Mouret dress. The actress looked effortlessly chic, proving that classic looks never go out of style.
