She's undoubtedly the one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and as she took to her position centrestage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York she had the audience in awe.
Portraying the role of Maggie Pollitt in the classic show Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Scarlett Johansson smouldered as she stripped to her negligee on Thursday evening.
In scenes which were reminiscent of when the late Elizabeth Taylor took on the role for the classic film adaption in 1958, the 28-year-old commanded the audiences attention as she put her all in the dream role.
Showing off her flamed coloured locks, Scarlett wore a pale yellow pleated mid-length dress, pearl choker, and a slick of pink lipstick.
Making sure the focus was all on her, Johansson seductively glided about the stage in a silk peach nightgown trimmed with lace as she said her lines.
In 2010 Scarlett earned a Tony Award and the best reviews of her career for A View from the Bridge.
Johansson's return to Broadway as frustrated sexpot Maggie in Tennessee Williams play was immortalized in a sultry black-and-white poster.
In the moody image, which could easily double as a perfume advert, the movie star is seen reclining with lips parted as her fingers loosen the plunging neckline of her sexy white slip.
