Charlize Theron looked sensational on the red carpet at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards in L.A. this evening.

The South African actress was radiant wearing an Azzedine Alaia Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Her black sleeveless gown with scalloped edges and a ruffled skirt made her stand out on a red carpet full of summery dresses.

I love the side swept braided bun and the simple accessories which included a Bvlgari ring, a black clutch and gold Giambattista Valli strappy sandals.

Perfection personified. She never disappoints on the red carpet.

You may remember that Dasha Khukova wore this same gown in pink last year.
