Blonde Bombshells are Back

09/19/2006 at 09:36 AM ET

The classic platinum blond screen siren is back in a big way this fall. Scarlett Johansson (left) plays up her pinup girl good looks (and sexy curves) with platinum curls and deep red lips in her movie, The Black Dahlia, which just opened last weekend. And Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani rock the old-school combo of pale skin, platinum locks and crimson lips on a daily basis. Red lipstick is one of the big emerging beauty trends, and the platinum hair is a nice counterpoint to all the brunettes popping up lately. Tell us: Is this a look you would try?

To Get the Look:

For a splurge, try Chanel Rouge Hydrabase in Fire and Besame Pressed Powder, which has 40’s style packaging for that extra retro flair.

For a steal, try Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice, an authentic 50’s color, and Neutrogena Healthy Defense Powder compact.

This look can get a little too fake, like Christina. Scarlett looks more natural. I could never pull it off with my black hair and olive complexion, but for those who can, go for it!

I really don’t care for this look at all. It’s okay on Scarlett for a movie – but for the average person? Let’s get real. I’d rather a natural look – blonde, brunette – and a more natural complexion. It’s not natural for everyday. As for Christina – she needs a new look!

WOW! This look brings back the 50’s sophistication years of Marilyn Monroe style and way back when bombshell ladies. To copy cats at home, check in first with your prof. hairdresser prior to bleaching your hair.

I absolutely love this look on scarlet! I can’t say the same for christina though. But that’s okay, she’s a great singer. A+++

I think red lipstick is nice every once in a while, but it’s not something I think should be done all the time! It looses its punch if becomes an everyday occurrence. I agree that while this look is nice it is not realistic for day to day living, at least not for the normal people. I prefer brunette, and who said you had to have the platinum blonde hair to complete the Bombshell look? You can be a brunette, and still pull off the look.

I love it! I think that it looks very classy and I’m glad to see that not all of Hollywood is revealing themselves so much!

I LIKE THE RED LIPSTICK BUT I DON’T THINK I WOULD BECOME A BLONDE…THE RED LIPSTICK ALSO LOOKS GREAT ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE BLACK HAIR[LIKE ME]….I LIKE THE PLATINUM HAIR AND LIPSTICK ON GWEN BUT I DON’T KNOW ABOUT SCARLET.

IT WORKS FOR MAKE-BELIEVE. NOT A REAL LOOK FOR REAL WOMEN. GOOD FOR A MOVIE BUT COMES OFF TOO STRONG. Scarlett looks great though — one of the few young actresses I respect. Incidentally, this look is getting too old for Christina Aguilera. You can incorporate part of it, but don’t overdo it. Scarlett does it right, but Christina just looks over the top. Less is more.
