Charlize Theron In Gucci – 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Charlize Theron blew me away on the red carpet at the 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, which were held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City last night.

The actress looked outstanding wearing a Gucci Spring 2012 dress.

We’ve seen a lot of this collection on the red carpet, most recently on Salma Hayek, but this effortless take on the 20s-inspired art deco collection is my favourite to hit the red carpet so far.

Her black and white light georgette sleeveless multi-pleated dress, with a deep v-neck line and a gold band around the waist, was teamed with gold accessories.

A gold necklace, gold sandals and a black and gold clasp Alexander McQueen clutch complemented her dress.

The look was completed with a black hair band and a fuchsia lip shade.

    Not quite sure about this one. The necklace, the hanging straps, the gold waist band, the different layers of pleating in the skirt – each of these elements seem to be competing rather than complementing. Fussy.

    It’s an odd dress, but she works it so perfectly.

    • Linda November 29, 2011 at 15:31 #

      Yes, she looks goregeous and BDOTW worthy.

      • maria November 29, 2011 at 15:47 #

        totally agree. I love everything about this look, from the hairband, to the lip colour, to the shoes.

        • smolls November 30, 2011 at 23:32 #

          I couldn’t agree more – I love this look from head to toe…LOVE it! Effortless is right – she looks absolutely fantastic! BDOTW for sure!

  3. Ines November 29, 2011 at 11:43 #

    She is the queen. God bless her make up artist who never got it wrong. I love the shoes as well.

  4. Nadine November 29, 2011 at 11:59 #

    Very refreshing. Usually Charlize appears to be a Dior lady, this is something changing a lot yet she still carries it surprisingly fine. BTOTW worthy to me.

    I think she looks gorgeous… and yeah, we’ve seen a lot of this collection on the red carpet…
    but FC (from this collection) do you REALLY think she looks better than Camilla Belle? http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2011/11/06/camilla-belle-in-gucci-lacma%e2%80%99s-art-and-film-gala/
    I love her makeup though :)

    • Fashion Critic November 29, 2011 at 12:26 #

      Yes

      • Betty Brandenburg November 29, 2011 at 13:56 #

        I think she’s got way too much foundation on her face… particularly her forehead. Nice dress, though…

    • Tahj November 29, 2011 at 19:22 #

      Yes, Camilla Belle’s dress looked like a lampshade.

    Love this!!

  7. hauteness November 29, 2011 at 12:30 #

    BDOTW- worthy for sure. I absolutely LOVE this look from head to toe!

    • Nat39 November 29, 2011 at 18:45 #

      Love, love,LOVE!!!! All the elements of the look work perfectly together and on her. BDOTW for sure, and the frontrunner for me.

  8. Jones19 November 29, 2011 at 12:51 #

    Something is off for me. I don’t like the gold chains and the hair band, it takes the look from effortless to trying a tad too hard.

  9. robbie November 29, 2011 at 12:52 #

    the necklace ruins it for me, but everything else is great.

  10. pritha November 29, 2011 at 13:16 #

    amazing look and carraige. just the way she carries herself elevates what she wears.

  11. Jess November 29, 2011 at 13:25 #

    I would have liked it better if the skirt was tad bit shortened so that it would be above her knees like it is on the model.

  12. Maz November 29, 2011 at 13:29 #

    Amaaazing. Love it. BDOTW for me.

  13. D November 29, 2011 at 13:29 #

    she lis sooo gorgeous and always so classie…

  14. Mario November 29, 2011 at 13:32 #

    Oh god, that is one of her best looks ever. It’s flawless. The closeup is insanely stunning.

  15. bm November 29, 2011 at 13:42 #

    This is Charlize at her best. Love everything.
    well, FC, I think you should put charlize in Dior last week (instead of Kate Winslet). But it already happened.
    But, i still love your blog.

  16. Alina November 29, 2011 at 14:07 #

    She’s a class act !

  17. jovi November 29, 2011 at 14:21 #

    Kind of a mess :/

  18. dee November 29, 2011 at 14:39 #

    I think she looks great.

  19. Mol November 29, 2011 at 14:39 #

    A rather complicated dress that Charlize pulls off with ease – BDOTW Contender for me!

  20. Rebecca Z November 29, 2011 at 15:14 #

    Stunning, I totally agree that this is a BDOTW contender.

  21. Suz November 29, 2011 at 15:24 #

    Love this on her. Charlize is gorgeous, but I usually think that she is quite a boring dresser. I think that she should take more chances like this because she can totally pull it off.

  22. Jess2 November 29, 2011 at 16:14 #

    There is something that appears a bit off to me, I think it is the hanging strips, I much prefer the runway look where they aren’t hanging down. Other than that I think she looks awesome! particularly love her hair, makeup and shoes!!

    • Do November 29, 2011 at 19:24 #

      actually if you look closely the strips are hanging down on the runway, they are just pushed more to the side.

  23. Hannah November 29, 2011 at 17:56 #

    I never pictured this dress on Charlize, let alone the red carpet, but it works so beautifulyl well.
    She has the stance, elegance and effortless nature to pull this off. People should watch and learn.

  24. Tahj November 29, 2011 at 19:20 #

    She’s amazing. Only she could pull off the plunging and still ooze class. Only she could pull off a flapper look and headband without looking too costumy. She always looks so effortlessly elegant and beautiful no matter what she wears. This is just the beginning. With Young Adult getting raves, expect to see more Charlize on the red carpet.

  25. Nadine November 30, 2011 at 05:22 #

    Wow, amazing combination of edgy dress & pretty girl.

  26. KateS November 30, 2011 at 05:22 #

    Perfection! A perfect balance of retro and modern, and such wonderful, queenly bearing.

  27. Karen November 30, 2011 at 09:06 #

    Wow I haven’t seen Charlize look this good in a long time.

  28. Emi November 30, 2011 at 09:23 #

    She looks amazing (am I the only one who thinks that she looks like S. Stone in the full length picture?), great and new look from her. Sometimes she chooses dresses that age her, this is very girlie and beautiful. Personally, i would have taken off the necklace. The make up is very beautiful.

  29. Felicia November 30, 2011 at 13:22 #

    I really like her hair and make-up, but I just don’t like the dress……

  30. Lisa November 30, 2011 at 13:36 #

    When I saw this, my first reaction was WOW. I think she looks incredible

  31. ramsay November 30, 2011 at 22:02 #

    This woman is the epitome of glamour and nothing short of any of the iconic hollywood actresses she appears withn in that Dior ad – she just needs a few more interesting roles
