Screen siren Scarlett Johansson slips her curves into a figure-hugging dress to get her star on the Walk Of Fame
Scarlett Johansson was the epitome of Old Hollywood today when she received a star on the Walk Of Fame.
The 27-year-old actress screamed Fifties bombshell, slipping her famous curves into a figure-hugging dress for the ceremony in Hollywood Boulevard.
The fitted shift dress was heavily patterned, featuring a floral design from the waist up and a black and white askewed checked pencil skirt.

The Lost In Translation star wore her hair up in an old-Hollywood style coiffed updo and had lashing of red-lipstick on her lips to match of her platform pump shoes.
Beaming, the blonde beauty posed for pictures with her star and waved to the audience.
And she wasn't afraid to get down on the pavement either, in order to place her hands on the plague.

Scarlett took to the stage to thank her family, friends, fans and colleagues in front of the Madame Tussauds wax museum on the famous strip.
Good pal and her Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner also did a speech at the ceremony.
'We are thrilled to honor an actress who has graced the screen and stage since she was 8 years old,' said Ana Martinez, Hollywood Walk of Fame producer of the accolade.

'Over the past 18 years Scarlett has matured into a recognized cinematic presence with an impressive body of work.'
The star comes as Scarlett is moving full steam ahead in her acting career.
In addition to promoting her new Avengers film with Renner and their fellow co-star Chris Hemsworth, it was announced this week that she would be reviving one of Elizabeth Taylor's most famous roles.
Well deserved: Scarlett has been in the acting business for an impressive 18 years
The screen siren will assume the character of Maggie The Cat in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
'I cannot wait absolutely to get to it. I’m exhilarated, I’m terrified, but I think in a good way,' she told Variety magazine of the new project.
Yesterday we were also given the first glimpse of Scarlett as Psycho star Janet Leigh.

Kind words: The actor also did a speech at the ceremony
The actress was seen in costume on the set of the upcoming film about legendary director Alfred Hitchcock.
Scarlett was seen arriving on set in her own clothes before heading into hair and make-up and then emerging as Leigh.
Pictures show the star with short blonde curls in her hair and dressed in a pair of high-waisted cropped trousers and a black coat with a hood.

The actress was also seen on set in a pair of grey jogging bottoms and a grey hooded jumper as she left her trailer.
Scarlett wasn't the only actress seen on set - Dame Helen Mirren was also seen in character.
The 66-year-old British actress was seen wearing a gingery wig and a headscarf as she emerged from her trailer in a white robe.
The star, who is playing Hitchcock's wife Alma, was also seen in a big black jacket covering up a grey suit with a scarf around her neck.

Last week Sir Anthony Hopkins was seen bearing more than a passing resemblance to his new role of Alfred Hitchcock.
Wearing prosthetics on his face and substantial padding underneath his black suit, Hopkins looked the very essence of Hitchcock yesterday.
Dame Helen Mirren plays the director's wife Alma, while Scarlett is Psycho star Janet Leigh whose character Marion Crane famously met a sticky end in the shower scene.
Jessica Biel plays Vera Miles, the actress who portrayed Marion Crane's sister in the film, while British actor James D'Arcy plays Anthony Perkins who played the psychotic Norman Bates.
Busy times: The star comes as Scarlett is moving full steam ahead in her acting career
According to Empire magazine, the film will explore Hitchcock's efforts to get Psycho made, while Hollywood bigwigs considered it beneath him.
Directed by Sasha Gervasi, the film has also been described as a love story between the director and his wife Alma and is slated to be released next year.
Alfred Hitchcock won two Golden Globes, eight Laurel Awards and five lifetime achievement award during his 60 year career span.
Along with Psycho, he is also famous for films North By Northwest, Vertigo, The Birds and Rear Window.
However, Hitchcock never won an Oscar, despite being nominated six times for an Academy Award as Best Director.
The director died in 1980 of renal failure at his home in Bel Air aged 80, while his wife Alma passed away two years later.
With her burgeoning career, Scarlett is shaping up to be just as iconic in the world of stage and screen.
