Scarlett Johansson looks radiant on the red carpet (shame about the unflattering dress)


When it comes to red carpet glamour, Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson rarely puts a stiletto out of place.

But last night the screen siren fell short of high expectations after opting to keep her trademark curves hidden under an unflattering confection at a gala dinner in Oslo.

Scarlett, who is in the throes of a European promotional tour for her movie The Spirit, opted for a strapless gown with peculiar origami-style neckline and mid-calf hemline that struggled to do her impressive form justice.

But not even the unusual choice of frock was enough to detract from her natural beauty, and she still managed to dazzle onlookers as she arrived at the Grand Hotel.

Mr Ahtisaari, 71, won the prestigious award for more than 30 years of diplomacy in trying to resolve conflicts in places such as Namibia, the Balkans and Indonesia.

He was selected from a near record 197 nominees – 16 more than in 2007 and just short of the record of 199 set in 2005.
