A few weeks ago, Scarlett Johansen, the actor who portrays Iron Man in the blockbuster movie, made a splash by posting a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a pair of matching black leggings and a black dress that included a red diamond, complete with a red heart.
The post has since been shared over 50,000 times and garnered a flood of criticism for Johansen’s apparent lack of fashion sense.
But it was the legges and dress that drew a lot of attention and was ultimately seen as a sign of how Johansen has evolved as an actress, in the eyes of some, and not a reflection of her real-life personality.
While the actress has said she is “really proud of my wardrobe choices” in the past, she is perhaps best known for her role as Peggy Carter on the ABC series and her portrayal of the female lead in The Avengers.
But her appearance on Instagram was anything but normal.
A spokesperson for Scarlett Johanson confirmed to HuffPost that the actress posted the photo on Sunday night after her family was visiting from New York.
“We had a wonderful time in New York, and Scarlett was thrilled to get out and meet some of our friends,” she said.
“The whole family is really excited to be back together, and they have all enjoyed their time in the city together.
We look forward to seeing all of you at Comic-Con.”
Johansen went on to explain why the outfit was the most appropriate.
“I’m not a big dresser, but I like to look good in leggers and dresses,” she told HuffPost.
It’s the first time the actress’ wardrobe has been in the news after she posted the outfit. “
I wore my leggies to the airport because I thought I’d look good and be able to stand out on the runway, and I like the way they look, and the red diamond is something I like.”
It’s the first time the actress’ wardrobe has been in the news after she posted the outfit.
On Thursday, the actress appeared in a photo that appeared to be a preview for the upcoming sequel to Iron Man.
In the shot, she wore a black leotard and a blue skirt with a pair on her legs.
While many fans have questioned the appropriateness of the outfit, the star has said that she was just trying to show her “true self.”
“I just wanted to show my real self and my character,” she added.
“It was all about me being proud and being a woman.
I wanted everyone to know that.”
The actress said she has received backlash from people on social media for wearing the outfit during a public holiday, but said she did not feel like she was disrespecting the holidays.
“For me, I’ve always been a big believer in the holiday season, and this was something that I wanted people to see and not just judge, because that’s not who I am,” she explained.
“And for me, this was not about disrespecting anyone.
I just wanted people, including myself, to know who I really am and celebrate it.
I mean, I don of course wear leotards and dresses and I do wear leggys and dresses, but to wear this to the convention was kind of ridiculous.” “
People just wanted it to be funny.

In the meantime, fans have been asking Scarlett Johansans about the outfit on Instagram.
“She is not the same person that she is in the film,” one commenter on Instagram wrote.
“Is she just a person that’s been through the motions and trying to blend in, or is she really a totally different person?”
“This was totally my first time ever at Comic Con, so I didn’t have much of an idea of what was going on,” Johanson said.
However, the 28-year-old actress said that it wasn’t all bad.
“Honestly, I was just so happy to be able meet so many people,” she continued.
“When I first saw that I was wearing it, it was just, ‘Oh my God.
You are not wearing that on your face.
You must have been wearing something else.'”
