Best dressed: Scarlett Johansson

It's not been long since we had to consign Ms Johansson to the oh-so-uncoveted 'worst dressed' spot.

We weren't happy to do this -- honestly. Despite our harsh reputation, it really upsets us to be confronted with crimes against style. And we were surprised by Scarlett's shocking transgression -- there were plaits involved, for heaven's sake ...

But we are just thrilled to see that her Heidi tribute days are behind her and she's gone back to the doing what she does best -- playing the role of a Hollywood movie goddess. She's bound to get an Oscar for it someday, you know.

Who needs to work with Scorsese when you can just look simply stunning in this beaded D&G gown with its dramatic mermaid skirt? Forget the economic crisis, once Scarlett returns to her retro roots, all will be well in the world.

Worst dressed: Eva Green

Say what you will about the Bond girl, she certainly knows how to turn heads, but we're not green with envy -- not this time, anyway.

Actually, this signature look is becoming a bit of a bore. Eva, we know that you're dark, mysterious and gothic, but honestly would a little pop of colour really hurt? (Even if you are at the premiere of a movie called Dark Shadows.) It can be seen sashaying down all the best catwalks, after all.

Perhaps French actresses are far too involved in their craft to pay attention to fashion, but nobody told style queen Marion Cotillard, who carries off the impressive feat of winning awards while looking fabulous with typical Gallic nonchalance.

Eva, this is a lesson you need to learn. Instead your unflattering embellished dress teamed with dreary dark make-up just looks like a frocky horror show.

And by the way, you're not even the first to wear this Tom Ford number; we would have expected a little more originality from you -- not resorting to Elle Macpherson and Anne Hathaway's hand-me-downs.
