Scarlett Johansson red hair

Scarlett is her name and so is her mane.

The 26-year-old actress made a ravishing appearance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, D.C. in a new red hair color. Johansson's ruby red locks were center-parted and styled in a tousled bob.

She accentuated her electric 'do with burgundy eye shadow, blush and berry lip gloss, as well as an eye-catching Chopard diamond necklace.

Red is a familiar hair hue to the Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics spokesmodel. We remember the star donning the color while hitting the promo circuit for the 2002 horror film "Eight Legged Freaks," and then again in 2009 as the Black Widow in "Iron Man 2."

And with Johansson set to revive her role as the Black Widow in "The Avengers," we may have discovered the reason behind her bold new look.
