Scarlett Johansson showed off her sartorial prowess as she attended a gala on Tuesday night. Stepping out for the 100th anniversary event of Planned Parenthood, Scarlett looked a dream in a beautiful, blue gown by Elie Saab. The floor-length number, taken from the designer's Pre-Fall 2017 collection, featured pastel and black panels with lace detailing. Scarlett drew attention to her Hollywood hourglass figure with a black leather belt, and completed her look with a metallic clutch.

The Lucy star, who was joined on the red carpet by her actress sister Vanessa, was showing her support for the healthcare organisation. She mingled with the likes of America Ferrera, Julianne Moore, Tina Fey, Diane von Furstenberg, Chelsea Handler and Meryl Streep.

Hillary Clinton delivered an impassioned speech on the night, making a not-so-subtle reference to President Trump and his administration. The former US Presidential candidate slammed the "groups of men" in Washington D.C. who are deciding the future of women's health. "As we speak, politicians in Washington are still doing everything they can to roll back the rights and progress we've fought so hard for over the last century," said Hillary. She later added that activists should "never back down from our commitment to defend the ability of every woman to make these deeply personal decisions for herself."

Back in January during the women's march in the US capital, Scarlett also spoke about how she has been using Planned Parenthood since her teenage years. The actress, who shares one daughter with her ex Romain Dauriac, said the healthcare company "provided a safe place" where she could "be treated with gentle guidance".

She said: "President Trump, I did not vote for you. That said, I respect that you are our president-elect and I want to be able to support you. But first I ask that you support me, support my sister, support my mother. Support my daughter who may actually, as a result of the appointments you have made, grow up in a country that is moving backwards, not forwards, and who may potentially not have the right to make choices for her body and her future that your daughter Ivanka has been privileged to have."
