Scarlett Johansson is inspired by looks from “the golden age of Hollywood”.

The 26-year-old actress is a fan of retro glamour. Scarlett pays tribute to the style of classic Hollywood stars when she makes an appearance at special events.

“If I’m doing a red carpet, I’ll usually look to the golden age of Hollywood a little bit, whether that’s Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall or later, like Brigitte Bardot,” Scarlett told Stylelist.

“I like to kind of give a nod to that era; I feel like the red carpet deserves it.”

Scarlett incorporates classic looks into her entire wardrobe. Her daytime attire is equally reminiscent of bygone eras.

“I love that kind of early 60s sort of playsuits and all those great 50s cut dresses. You know, the big collar of the shirts,” Scarlett said.

Scarlett has other style muses. Her mother’s fashion sense had a big impact on the actress.

“My mom would always say, ‘Drink a lot of water and get a lot of sleep and don’t smoke.’ So I follow some of those rules,” Scarlett explained.

“And growing up, my mom always wore a lot of make-up. My mom was very glamorous. I used to sit at her vanity and use her make-up – I know a lot of moms, they don’t really like their daughters to wear a lot of make-up. My mom was always very encouraging, she used to take me shopping so I learned a lot of about make-up application from her actually.” © COVER MEDIA
