Scarlett Johansson is 'Complict' in this SNL sketch about Ivanka Trump

Scarlett Johansson is 'Complict' in this SNL sketch about Ivanka Trump

Scarlett Johansson returned to SNL to host for the fifth time on Saturday evening.

Glammed up with heavy makeup and straightened hair, Johansson pranced around a ballroom as the presidential daughter in a seductive commercial for a new perfume brand called "Complicit".

In a recorded fake commercial, she played Ivanka Trump. "Because she's lovely, she's powerful...she's complicit".

From underlining the "I'm a feminist" vibe by asking, y'know, "How, exactly?", to the pained, skewed smile she seems to plaster on for every photographer, Scar-Jo nails it.

The parody poked fun at Trump's curated image as a women's rights advocate.

The New Zealander was the musical guest on last night's show, which was guest-hosted by Scarlett Johansson.

"We just have to respect each other's points of view I guess", she said.

In an ABC "20/20" interview a year ago, the businesswoman announced she was stepping away from her shoe empire and called it an "emotional" decision.

It finishes: "The fragrance for the woman who could stop all this, but won't". "She's... Complicit", says a voice-over narrator. Not only that, the Titanic / Billy Zane thing is quite clever.

Ms Trump, who is a former executive of the Trump Organisation, has been accused of failing to stand up to her father or hold him to account for his divisive policies or rhetoric.

Wrapping up the political segments, Kate McKinnon was back as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Alex Moffat impersonated Sen.

"Weekend Update" also saw Pete Davidson give his youth report, which included the assessment that White House adviser Stephen Miller looks like "Fredo Corleone, had he been sicker as a child".
