Unforgettable Throwback Snaps of Scarlett Johansson Reveal Her Timeless Style Icon Status

The performer has always been unafraid to showcase her unique fashion sense. She’s experimented with daring haircuts and extravagant looks without hesitation.

Back in 1996, the young actress exuded Delia’s model vibes with her faux fur-trimmed cardigan, strappy heels, and deep brown lip color during the premiere reception for “Manny Lo.” The outfit was captured by Ron Galella, a well-known photographer.

In 1997, at the Independent Spirit Awards, a celebrity showcased a bold and colorful fashion statement. Sporting an eye-catching crochet dress in a cheerful shade of yellow, the star accessorized with striking turquoise hair clips and neon green platform sandals. It was a daring choice that definitely made a statement.

Scarlett didn’t try out to be a member of Destiny’s Child, but she did pose with the group’s original members – LeToya Luckett, Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and LaTavia Roberson – during a Tommy Hilfiger Jeans event at Macy’s in New York City back in 1998.

During a Tommy Jeans event a few years after the turn of the millennium, the iconic Tommy Girl was seen donning the trendy anorak outerwear, paired with fashionable wide-legged pants. These stylish clothing choices were captured for posterity by the LIFE Picture Collection via Getty.

Do you have a photo with your closest friend sporting the same outfit as you did in 1998? Well, Scarlett Johansson and her actress buddy Jena Malone also sported similar attire, but the only difference is they were headed to The Hollywood Reporter’s Youngsters Awards at Universal Studios.

Back in 2001, at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Others,” the actress rocked some iconic early-aughts trends. Her shoulder-length hair was parted in the center, and she wore striking umber eye shadow that made her blue eyes stand out. She completed the look with a crop top and pointy-toe shoes, perfectly embodying the fashion of the time.

At the premiere of The Beach in 2000, Taylor Swift was already exhibiting a refined sense of style at just 16 years old. She looked effortlessly chic in a camel-colored coat, a stylish scarf, and a trendy headband. Accompanied by her twin brother Hunter, Swift made a sophisticated statement on the red carpet that drew admiration from fashion enthusiasts.

At the 36th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2001, the young actress, along with Thora Birch, sported golden highlights and donned dainty gold hoops during the screening of the movie “Ghost World.” The event was captured by SEAN GALLUP/GETTY.

We don’t recommend attempting this look, but at a fashion show in Los Angeles back in 2003, the celebrity (seen here with Mena Suvari) successfully sported a mullet.

Scarlett’s entourage during the Fashion Week of 2003 included some of the most popular It girls from Los Angeles such as Summer Phoenix, Heather Matarazzo and Rosario Dawson. Her fashion sense was also at its peak during that time, perfectly depicting the trends of 2003.

In 2001, at the 24 Hour Play celebrity benefit, Johansson effortlessly exuded coolness with her dressed-down camisole, skirt and hoop earrings. Even as she partied in New York City, she maintained her “it” girl aura.

Look at her rockin’ that outfit! The celebrity definitely took a chance with her sparkly, low-cut, and ultra-short dress at the Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony back in 2003 held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

At Cynthia Rowley’s fashion show in 2004, the doll-like vibes were enhanced by the addition of barrel curls, pink lips, and a candy-striped parasol as seen in the photo captured by DJAMILLA ROSA COCHRAN/WIREIMAGE.

The celebrity in question truly knows how to embody the classic Hollywood allure, as can be seen in this photo of her from 2004. Sporting an elegant emerald gown by Alberta Feretti, her hair styled in finger waves and lips painted red, she exudes pure glamour at the Governor’s Ball held after the Oscars.

Back in 2005, Scarlett Johansson looked stunning in a vintage-inspired outfit at the Golden Globes afterparty. Her hair and lips were styled in a retro manner, perfectly complementing her bronze Roland Mouret attire. The whole look was a complete hit!
