We're all for high-fashion modesty, but some looks simply can't be hurt by a little sex appeal. Especially when the wearer of the look in question is Scarlett Johansson.

Scarlett is Marie Claire's May cover girl, and she shows off a dangerously flirty look for the mag. Scarlett's sheer Dolce & Gabbana dress incorporates pretty multicolored flower clusters... that un-cluster around certain areas of importance, revealing her underpinnings beneath black lace.

In the accompanying interview, Scarlett sounds off on an unlikely style inspiration: “I’ve been obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love the makeup, I love the hair, I love the looks. That’s been my escape.”

Aside from that vampy pout, we haven't really detected any RuPaul inspiration in Scarlett's red carpet looks. But hey, you never know what tricks she's got up that lace sleeve of hers.

Can you picture Scarlett rocking a RuPaul-style getup? For more photos and more dish, click over to Marie Claire to read an extended interview.
