Charlize Theron never fails to give us the wow factor, even if she is wearing just a LBD.

The actress arrived at this event looking beautiful and statuesque, wearing a long sleeved black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 lace dress, with a ruffled detail going down one side.

The dress was presented with a belt, which Charlize didn’t wear. Instead she accessorized with stunning jewels, a metallic clutch and metallic python heels.

I wasn’t a fan of the Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 collection with their built-in underwire bra’s, but seeing this gown on Christie Turlington, I must admit I’m now in love.

Some times you need to see a dress off the runway, to really appreciate it.

Woot woot. Julia Roberts is not wearing head-to-black.

You can’t imagine how I happy I was to see her not wearing a dress in her signature colour.

The actress arrived wearing a white jacquard Dolce & Gabbana sheath dress, with a black cardigan and black square toe heels.

Some of you may be shocked by what Rita Wilson is wearing, but I’m not. She’s never played it safe on the red carpet, and this is always admirable in my books.

Tom Hanks’ wife wore a paillette covered v-neck dress, with feathered shoulders.

I can’t say I’m crazy about her shoe choice, but everything else works for me.
