Do You Like Scarlett Better Natural Or Glam?

12/14/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Scarlett Johansson is a girl who loves to play with her looks, and we love her for it! Whether it’s an outrageous up-do or bright red lips, she never misses an opportunity to experiment with her hair and makeup. After the kicking off Red Carpet Season with this morning’s Golden Globe nominations, we can’t wait to see how she turns out for the big award shows. What’s your take on her flip-flopping style? Do you prefer Scarlett sweet and natural or glammed up and gorgeous?

Anastasya on

Natural she is girl. Beautiful girl.
Glam she is magnificent woman.

Can’t choose..

Laura on

I like her better when she’s glammed up!! It gives her an edge and sexiness

Kate on

she looks better natural. she’s just sooooooo beautiful.

J.D. on

I think Scarlett looks lovely in both looks. One is not necessarily better than the either, they suit different occasions. You certainly wouldn’t wear the red lipstick going to breakfast in the morning, and the natural style would be perfect for a casual night or afternoon. I do think when her hair and makeup is styled in a classical, 1950’s-50’s fashion she looks like she could have fit in the with the ingenues of that era.

Jordan on

All right, well there are definitely better pictures of a more glamorous Scarlett. This glam picture is so stark it makes her look very different, much older and not in a good way. This natural picture is beautiful, but this particular sexy look doesn’t do her justice.

Becky on

THis is one acctress who appears to be genuinely pretty. I know she has makeup on in poth pictures and in both she looks beautiful.

Evelyn on

glamorous

enigma on

Natural, of course!
The photo to the right is not the best of shots but, it seems Scarlett has fun and grace either way!

Sarah on

She looks terrific either way!!

Sarinka on

Definitely sweet and natural,glowing…With the bright red lips, strange hair and white skin she looks really strange …

Terra on

NATURAL!!! PLEASE!!!! SHe’s is beautiful in both ways – but natural def dets her better……….

shopoholic on

natural she is so pretty without makeup too!

j on

natural

Ainsley on

I love Scarlet, but I don’t think she’s as naturally gorgeous as everyone makes her out to be. What makes her beautiful is her confidence. This just shows that anyone can be Beautiful. Just have confidence that God made you the way you are because he thinks you are stunning!

TRACIE on

I THINK SHE HAS SUCH A WONDERFUL NATURAL BEAUTY. SO FOR ME I LIKE THE NATURAL.

rachel on

Definitely natural! she’s a beautiful woman anyway.

Angie on

Scarlett definitely looks better more natural! The pic on the left is more appealing. The pic on the right, she’s wearing to light of a powder on her face & she looks like she’s wearing powder sugar on her face! Natural suits her better!

laura on

scarlett is gorgeous no matter what. when she’s all glammed up she looks very classic and pretty but the more “natural” approach is always better…in my opinion. it’s just a cleaner look.

Susan on

Anyway she looks, Scarlett is a beautiful woman. Confidence goes a long way to making a woman gorgeous, Scarlett definitely has that and great talent as well.

katie on

Natural, but I think that most people look better natural.

Rebecca on

Scarlett looks gorgeous both when she’s dressed up and when she’s casual, but in these photos, I’d pick the natural look.

Brooke on

She looks gorgeous either way, but shes a total stand-out when shes natural. A true beauty inside and out!

Jo Ann on

both natural and glam…why? ‘coz she’s one of the sexiest women all over the world!

Lola on

Definitely glam suits her better ~ what ppl fail to realize is that the “natural” look often involves as much makeup and styling, if not more, then going glam so it’s a bit of a misnomer to say she’s natural. If she were to be truly natural it wouldnt be nearly as attractive as her pretend natural

Len on

Scarlett’s had major nose work done so there goes “natural” she’s a phoney like the rest of them and everyone buys it

yen on

“when shes natural she looks amazing she doesn´t need to much make up to look good ,she shouldn´t over do it, alot of women do this, some times less is more and this is scarletts case.”

Marta on

Maybe better natural…even though looks like the girl next door….

Deanna on

Nothing says beautiful than going natural. But…it is fun to dress up occasionally too. I prefer her glamour shots when she’s in 30’s, 40’s and 50’s looks, but the fire engine red lips don’t really do it for her skin; it really makes her look washed out.

jae on

I truthfully think she is not “that” attractive. She’s not pretty at all. Just an average go. Maybe she is a great person, but I certainly don’t think she is attractive.

sherry lingenfelter on

I think Scarlett is real Hollywood glamour like back in the days of Liz Taylor…..she is classy and beautiful, with or without makeup.

andrea on

definitely glam. she looks like a 50’s starlet or something. it’s a beautiful look. personally the “natural” look resembles someone i’d pass on the street and not give a second glance. just my .02 though.

wildflower on

natural, hands down. She has a beautiful glow to her.

zak on

definately glam!!
she looks VERY ordinary with the natural look..

Jessica on

Sweet & natural definitely!! If I could look like that naturally it would be frieken awesome!!

Misty on

I like her both ways but I prefer her natural look. She is a beautiful girl for sure.

Elda on

She reminds me of the old Hollywood glamour, Scarlett has good taste in clothes! I agree with Laura and J.D, she is a classic beauty!

Nena on

She’s adorable either way. She’s smart, talented and confident women, and it shows. First time I saw her (it was some interview on TV)I noticed her flawless complexion,
grace and wit (that was waaay before she was “officialy” a star)I knew, somehow, that she was predestined to be BIG, very soon…

Leah on

Natural she has amazing beauty naturally that other women would die for. When she is glam it just looks a bit much like she is a kid playing with her mom’s make up.

heather toney on

i think she looks better natural. her make up is just way too white she doesnt need any. women who wear a natural look are just way sexier than women who wear make up come on you guys its not halloween everyday.

Beth on

I definitely thinks she looks prettier just ‘natural’ the glam look makes her look like a 1920’s movie star, and that’s pretty too, but it looks like she is playing a character,and it makes her look older. I prefer her in the first picture, she looks happy and healthy and young.

Pam on

she looks great both ways. she is such a beautiful person.

Amy on

Any women who can turn heads with alot of make-up on gets my vote!

micheleeee. on

Len, what the heck is wrong with a nose job?

I mean, geez! That doesnt make her any less humble than most Hollywood actresses.

I like both looks better.

Sue on

I think she looks better natural. She has way too much make up on in the glam. I little makeup goes a long way.

LAUDER on

I PERSONALY THINK ALSO SCARLTETTE SHE IS NOT BAD BUT SHE IS NOT A BEAUTY QUEEN MODEL TYPE OF BEAUTY BUT AS THEY DID IN THE 50’S, I BELIEVE IN THE 50,S WHAT THEY DID TO SOME ACTRESSES BY POWDERING THERE SKIN TO MAKE IT LOOK WHITE TO ME THAT LOOK ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS NOT NATURAL DOES NOT APPEAL TO ME,IN MY OPINION WHEN YOU HAVE A GLOW TO YOUR SKIN THATS NATURAL IS BEAUTIFUL,ALSO ON A BLACK AND WHITE SCREEN YOU WILL NOT BEABLE TO TELL WHAT COLER OF THE DRESS THE ACTRESS IS WEARING BUT WHEN YOU SEE THEM IN PERSON WEARING LOUD COLERS WITH WHITE SKIN MAKES MY STOMACH CURL.IT LOOKS OFF.

LAUDER on

I MENT TO SAY ALSO THE WAY THEY DID THERE MAKEUP BACK THEN MADE ME A LITTLE QUEEZY !!!

gex on

Well she’s so beautiful naturally… Wow! So glam ! I love her. Hey girls, do you know the brand of her lipstick ?

Patty on

I love Scarlett, she is such a talented actress. I prefer natural but glam is HOT too!

Anestasia on

She would look good after a flag football game in the mud; or in a toesack; or wrapped in aluminum foil…etc.

Vel on

Natural looks beautiful and younger, glam looks beautiful and more mature and sexy. I like the glam more.

robin on

i love both looks…..
scarlett is a beautiful woman!!!!

Peach on

Gosh, both looks are great on her. The glam picture is not the most flattering one of her, but I’ve seen other glam pics of her and she is a gorgeous woman.

Shan on

I think that each look has its place. I like that natural look for everyday, but the pale face and bright lips is also nice when dressing up.

Vanessa on

It is just me or looks like Scarlett did something with her lips?
They look thinner… if so, god for her, her blumpy lips were kind of disgusting…
She looks better glam.

sharon on

she looks prettier in the glam shot, I think.

Donia on

I like her natural. She’s a classic beauty and doesn’t need all of the “Hollywood glam” to look pretty.

Cindie T on

I think she looks “better” natural. You can’t beat Natural beauty!

Tara on

natural looks better, glam looks ok

ladylah on

she’s beautiful either way. glam or natural, she’s amazing

Melody on

definetly Au’ Natural :) It’s the natural beauty that’s best.

rae on

she’s gorgeous. I really have to say that I admire her talent and her resistance to the institutional skin-and-bones trend that we see so often. I think she should go the natural road more often, though. it makes her stand out that much more from people who cake on the makeup all the time because she just doesn’t need it.

wulan on

She knows what she wants to look. Glam or natural is part of scarlett’s beauty

LOENA on

ALL OF THESE GIRLS THEY MAKE THEM SO ARTIFICIAL THINGS HAVE NOT CHANGED SINCE I THOUGHT THE 50’S WHEN THEY USED TO TELL THE GIRLS WHAT TO DO, I HOPE NOT NEXT UP IS SEEING HER ON HOLLYWOOD PLASTIC SURGERY SECRETS SHES A YOUNG GIRL ONLY IF SHE WAS A PART OF THE REAL DISCOVERED YOUTH TRYING TO MAKE IT !!!!

Melissa on

I think that she is the one of the hottest stars out there. I love her style and sense of confidence- she looks great both ways!

Shawna on

LESS IS MORE…LESS IS MORE…LESS IS MORE…LESS IS MORE. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY!

Christine Charles on

I definitely think Scarlett looks better natural. I think she is a beautiful girl but I also think that her true beauty shines through in the pic where she’s not glammed up! =]

Stephanie on

i like the natural look its less like barbie and more like the right thing to do is to go with out makeup but its my opinion

Esperanza on

i think she looks good either way but she has that natural beauty that drives anybody crazy….

gg on

Natural. There is a reason why that look went out centuries ago. You know, “OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM!” They look like death on a cracker with red lips!

adeola on

glam

dee on

natural. looks to fake with her glam on!!!

Lizzie on

wow. i think her glam look is so beautiful and sexy. her bright red lipstick is amazing with her old hollywood look. her “natural” look, which isnt very natural at all, looks to young and not mature enough for a booming hollywood actress of her stature. i’ve seen better glam shots of scarlett but even this one is captivating in my eyes.
glam is definitely better.

Caddie on

she looked way better on the pisture on the left because on the picture on the right she looks way older than she is

ali on

i think both
the natural is the best though

Pamela on

Her “natural” look reminds us of the friendly girl-next-door we see in interviews. Her “glam” look evokes a level of confidence, style and Old Hollywood magnificence that is as essential to her image as her honest and candid character. Scarlett is both simultaneously; she cannot be hemmed in by an either/or.

olya on

she looks better glam

Rachel on

I think she looks beautiful either way, although i do like the natural a lot better, she looks so pale in the other picture.

carry on

she is beautiful naturally-she looks soo much healthier.

carry on

the natural picture shows she has a beautiful tan healthy glow 2 her skin,
the glam picture makes her look very pale and sickly although they are nice earrings and lipstick.

in my opinion the skin makes a difference, so id go with natural.

Kp on

Neither one is a “Natural” photo! Wake up people….the so called “natural” looks as if she had just jumped out of the spraying tanning salon, over to the makeup artist etc, the so called “Galm shot” is probably closer to her own natural skin colour—have you ever seen her in any about town photos all nice and tan???? Don’t get me wrong she is an attractive woman and an ok actress, just another princess passing through the hollywood hottie stage.

donna on

both ways look great

stephanie on

I think she looks great natural. not so pale

Brooke on

Terrible picture choice! In the glam picture, she looks like Marilyn Manson. But I always think she looks better glammed up. It makes her look more sophisticated and sexy.

Les Talented on

Natural is so Great but she also looks good glamed up!

Claudia S. on

BOTH, SHE’S A WOMAN OF MANY LOOKS THAT CAN ROCK IT ANYWAY. SHE’S GORGEOUS !

Alliosn on

Natural she is obviously a stunningbeauty. I prefer her with the natural glow. Its more real.

nina on

natural, definitely

cynthia on

She’s beautiful natural. She glows without glammed up make-up.

karen on

Def natural. Natural beauty is best and she has it!
U GO GIRL!

nina on

natural of course

michelle on

deffinetly glam. but she is beautiful both ways.

Jessica on

She looks stunning regardless.

Lynette on

I think that whoever did her make up on the glam pictue just did a horrible job, she looks dead. She is so beautiful and all of that makeup gave her no justice. She looks georgous in her natural look.

cheryl on

wow, she’s gorgeous. Either way. You need variety.

Sexy and Glammed on

I think that Scarlett is very beautiful…I mean how many celebrities can you say looks this great without a lot of makeup on. Let the truth be told-in the so called natural look yes she is natural but she still looks like she has make up on but just not a lot; now on the other hand the glammed picture is pretty more sophicated like others said but I did notice that her makeup does look light and maybe her make up artists did it intentionally.Overall, I think that Scarlett is a beautiful young lady with natural beauty but this is not the right picture to use as far as a natural shot because being natural you will have flaws because no one and I mean NO ONE is naturally beauty there is always a flaw and because of that everyone is pretty in their own way!

Inan on

Wow I think Im in love with her, hopefully I could see her in person someday

chinasky on

I like both! I luv Scarlett!

Joanna on

seriously, she is beautiful. Nobody can pull off a nutural look like her!!

rachel b. on

natural!

ch a lo on

ok. this girl is simply stunnangggg. she is so pretty and she is always looking the best. i personally like her glammed up but her natural look is amazing too. what cant this chick do??

WTF!? on

Am I the only person who thinks this is ugly as sin!? I don’t think she’s talented/attractive/funny/any other positive claim given to her. With that said, her “natural” look is the lesser of 2 evils. She looks like a pasty old wh0re with the weirdly shaped red lips.

Talk about ove !

jenna l on

i think she is gorgeous no matter what she does. she is one of the few actresses that is proud of her curves and natural beauty. A++ in my book!

michelle on

she looks lovely both ways but I think I prefer her glam look.

suzzi on

i cant say i like her face. :S sorry ladies… i think she looks like a crab with makeup on…

O'Hara on

Jeez, that’s a tough question!!

She looks real when she’s natural, but she’s just beauutiful when she’s Glam!

sophieb on

deffo glam!!!!!love the red lippy on her its gorge and very bold.

cee on

scarlett, will you marry me?

magic marker on

truthfully, she’s not my favorite either way. there is nothing unusual about her face…she reminds me of a blonde katie holmes..both would be boring to look at for longer than a week.

personally, i’d take the following women over scarlett any day.

1. kirsten dunst with her slightly crooked teeth
2. christina ricci’s raunchy sex appeal (pre-plastic surgery)
3. kate winslet’s authentic manner and vulnerability
4. jessica biel’s pouty play kitten thing
5. angelina jolie’s mysterious ways
6. cat power (she’s a much better singer and way hotter)
7. giselle bundchen (the most interesting profile ever)
8. i could keep going..

basically, i find her to be sorta boring. she seems like a clone. most young actresses are so good at being who someone else wants them to be. i bet she’s making music to appeal to her new husband because he was engaged to allanis morissette (sp?)…and of course, everyone knows tom waits is hip to love right now so maybe that was from her PR agent.

breakdown britney will be coming up soon enough…just watch. it always happens with the young ones.
