Scarlett Johansson Doesn't Have an Oscar Dress Yet

Scarlett Johansson is giving a whole new meaning to the term ‘fashionably late’! The actress waited until a mere four days before this Sunday’s Academy Awards show to be fitted for a dress. But Johansson’s stylist, Nicole Chavez, isn’t worried. “What it comes down to is — may the best dress win,” Chavez told “My goal was to make her feel beautiful, happy and comfortable,” she says of Scarlett, who was asked to present an Oscar two weeks ago, “[to] find the perfect fit.” And when it comes to prepping on the day of the big show, Chavez imagines that it will be a low-key environment, with Johansson surrounded by friends and family, sipping wine and taking pictures. “It’s comparable to a wedding day,” Chavez says. “Everyone will just be having a good time.” —Kim Peiffer
