Fantasy Gifts: Our Birthday Picks for Scarlett Johansson

11/21/2006 at 06:00 PM ET

As pedigreed as her film roles may be, it’s hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson is only turning 22 tomorrow! She may be young, but her sense of style is already well-honed. We actually have a few thoughts on what gifts to get this glamour girl, you know, if we had unlimited budgets and were actually friends with her. Anyone who fits those qualifications, feel free to crib from us! Do you have any gift ideas for Scarlett?

1. After spending some time in London filming Scoop and Match Point with director Woody Allen, she may be missing the anglo-way of life. How about a colorful candle from British designer Matthew Williamson? Maybe she just needs a spot of tea and some biscuits while watching some of Woody’s best movies!

2. We wouldn’t expect Scarlett to show up to her birthday party in jeans. We think she’d look lovely in this satin dress from pal Stella McCartney or this sweet, but sophisticated strapless dress from Vera Wang.

3. To keep her bombshell looks in place, how about some killer red lipstick from Three Custom Color and L’Oreal Volume Shocking Mascara? Of course, if she wants to keep playing around with her hair, she can try Color Pulse for a quick change.

4. We wouldn’t want to leave out Scarlett’s constant companion — her chihuahua, Maggie! We think the fashionable pooch would look fab in this Polo skull and bones sweater when she emerges from her new Bianca carrier.

I remember seeing this woman in some film where she played a rebellious teen. I rented it from the library many years ago and I kept thinking, she’s gorgeous! She’s going to be a big star. And here she is!

A perfect gift for her would be some beautiful pearls! Classic and sophisticated!

Allison on

I know the perfect gift—acting lessons!

I agree with Erica. Pearls are the perfect compliment for Scarlett. And, Scarlett is very beautiful, it’s a no wonder she was chosen for the role in “Girl with a Pearl Earring” I think Vermeer would have been flattered to have such a beauty be in his paintings! Cheers!

I would give her clothes for her age.

She dresses like an old Hollywood star, she is very young but sometimes looks like she is in her 30’s.

Wow. Ouch.


Scarlett is her ownself, let her be. Pearls would be great- a true classic touch.

I clicked on the Ralph Lauren link without reading the text and wondered why you’d give Scarlett a dog sweater. Now I get it. Though there’s some danger her dog will be mistaken for a pirate ship.

An “old” Hollywood star is in her 30’s??
Hey, I’m 30!
Yikes. I feel old now!

Vanessa on

Heyy dont take me wrong Erica!!
I mean old Hollywood star as in the old 50’s, too sophisticated, elaborated & fake for my point of view.

I am also 30, and I dont feel old, but I didnt dress the same now than when I was 20.

Sometimes I forget how old Scarlett is cuz she looks way much older than 22.

Erica on

Whew! Now I get it! That’s too funny.

Dressing younger or older is strange. Scarlett is very young, and I forget that sometimes too.

People always think I am 20 since I look young. I get ID’d way too much. Most of the time I like it, but sometimes it’s weird. I am currently trying to make a point of dressing more maturely (as in less hoodies and abercrombie sweats!) so I feel comfortable with who I am. It’s hard to find that balance, because like you said, 30 is not “old”, so we still want to look young but sophisticated (not silly). But Scarlett is 22, so I say to her…look young and silly while you can!!
