Whether she's on the red carpet or posing for a magazine spread, Scarlett Johansson's "girls" are often center stage.

And the same typically goes for the advertisements the actress has starred in -- think: Louis Vuitton's Fall '07 campaign that had her playing the modern pinup in a bra and panties, her brand new Dolce & Gabbana ad that has her doing the same or last season's punky ads for Mango, in which she reclined seductively in curve-hugging tank dresses.

But now, in her second season as the face of Mango, it looks like the actress-cum-singer is getting all conservative around the neckline and yet somehow manages to look even sexier by leaving a little to the imagination.

The Spring/Summer 2010 ads, shot by Mario Sorrenti in New York, feature a supremely lithe Johansson with auburn tresses wearing floral sundresses, lacy boho frocks, shirt dresses and embroidered rompers while draping herself over velvet chairs and bedspreads.

Mango
is calling the look of the season "retro-marine" and says it's inspired by the hues of the Mediterranean.

Even though she's still positively smoldering, for once we feel like our eyes are more drawn to her gorgeous face -- done up with dark, smoky eyes -- instead of her much talked-about (and, in Isaac Mizrahi's case, much felt-up) chest, and we're loving it.

But what do you think of Johansson's more buttoned-up look? Leave a comment.

Now see which celebrity was more buxom than usual for her recent ad campaign.
