Remember how Scarlett Johansson told Flare magazine that she was the “only girl in the film,” and that she is “obviously going to be more aware that I’m surrounded by a bunch of suits. Everybody is going to be wearing black and grey and it will be nice to add femininity and some female sex appeal to the lineup. I think I’ll steer clear of the tuxedo”? She was talking, of course, about her film The Avengers, which premiered last night in L.A. And no matter how much “female sex appeal” she brought, the men were the clear winners of this round.
Scarlett herself wore a little black dress by Versace which we’re still trying to love, but all eyes were on the dudes. Robert Downey Jr. was flamboyant in an eggplant suit while Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner were all sharp in different shades of gray. Alexander Skarsgard looked totally hot in a black suit, sans tie and white shirt and was accompanied by his father, Stellan Skarsgard. Samuel L. Jackson brought on his A-game in white. A smattering of other celebrities attended as well, and to see what Aisha Tyler, Mark Ruffalo, Dominic Monaghan and such wore, take a look at our gallery below.

We’d lost track of how many Pirates of the Caribbean films have been churned out so far, but obviously the rest of the world hasn’t. And thanks to the massive premiere Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides had yesterday at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, we now know that the franchise is up to its fourth installment now. But this wasn’t any other screening. Apart from a slinky black carpet instead of the usual red, this was the world’s first outdoor 3-D premiere! An open-air theater was specially constructed and tickets to attend ran at $1,000 a pop. Which was a very nice touch because all proceeds from the premiere were donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The cast turned up in full force with Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Keith Richards (and his wife, Patti Hansen), Geoffrey Rush, the intriguingly named Astrid Berges-Frisbey and our new golden boy Sam Claflin. Apart from them, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens were spotted being all BFF, Jodie Foster turned up in sunglasses (at night), Steven Tyler hung out with Mickey Mouse and Lorenzo Lamas brought his fifth wife Shawna Craig. The Dancing With The Stars crew showed up too, with Bruno Tonioli, Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy walking the
plank carpet. And American Idol blasts from the pasts too — we know you remember David Cook, but how about Blake Lewis?! Lots more to look at in our gallery below.
