Scarlett Johansson has once again been given the honour of Esquire's Sexiest Women Alive title. Go Scar-Jo! The actress first claimed the title back in 2006 and it seems 7 years later she’s still as sexy as ever and you've gotta admit, she's looking pretty darn hot.
So what is it about Scarlett that's so ruddy sexy? Remember that rather fabulous bottom in the opening shot of Lost in Translation? It was certainly enough to brighten up Bill Murray’s day. Or how about her sultry turn in Match Point alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers? Phwoar indeed.
Yep, whether she’s playing it more reserved - hello The Girl in the Pearl Earring - or sexing it up in leather as the Avengers’ Black Widow, Scarlett is sure to heat up the silver screen. And it's that sex appeal which has landed her campaigns with both Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabanna, as well as one or two hunky men (RIP Scarlett and Ryan).
Away from the film world, Scarlett never fails to bring that old Hollywood glamour to her red carpet appearances - see her best in the gallery above. She wraps her curves in Dolce & Gabbana beauties that make the most of her figure and often turns to Donatella Versace for a show-stopper. Perhaps most memorably, she wore a divine Versace dress to the Golden Globe Awards in 2006.
