Charlize Theron In Giambattista Valli – ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ Madrid Photocall

Charlize Theron joined Kristen Stewart at the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ Madrid photocall in Spain, held at the Casa de America earlier today.

The actress wore a Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 dress with nude Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

Her dress is beautiful and expertly tailored and I adore that vibrant red colour but the dress gives her quarterback shoulders.

Unfortunately, I’m struggling to get past that.

A simple side-parted ponytail completed her look.

    Quarterback shoulders was the only thing I noticed too. It’s a shame that it looks like that because the color is gorgeous on her and so is her hair and make-up.

      As soon as I saw the picture, I thought she looked like a line backer. That is all you can see! The color is divine, but those shoulders are overwhelming.

      I thought the same thing. In the second photo she looks better but in the first one her shoulders are the only thing I see…

      The shoulders ruin this dress. It’s all I can look at. lol

      When you are broad liek Charlize you should not wear a dress with shoulder enhancements & tight around the arms, it’s ok when she is with the rest of hte cast and her hand is on her hip but it looks awful when her arms are down.

      I agree. “Quarterback shoulders” is an accurate description but the rest is just perfection.

  2. Emmeline May 17, 2012 at 15:23 #

    This is a miss for me. I absolutely agree with the quarterback shoulders, as my first thought was that she looked like she was wearing football pads.

    Also, the fit around the middle doesn’t look quite right. And knowing what a fabulous shoe collection she has, the nude pumps seem extremely boring.

    She looks better in the second photo. Maybe is the way she’s posing in the first one?

    That awkward moment when Kristen Stewart looks better than Charlize Theron. Everything is off here. The awful quarterback shoulders, the messy fit around the waist, the fugly beigy nude pumps. The minimalist styling is not helping much either. The only thing I truly like is her pink lip color.

    You said it right, those are quarterback shoulders! And FC… Do you ever rest? :D You impress me everyday with your dedication to the blog and your non-stop posts !

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 15:50 #

      Thank you and no, I never rest ;)

      • Katy May 17, 2012 at 16:07 #

        No thank YOU, this blog is getting me through my exams :)

        • Shaina May 18, 2012 at 22:44 #

          I’m with you, without this blog I would be stressing about finals.

  6. vicky May 17, 2012 at 15:44 #

    Looks like she still got the hanger in!

  7. Gustavo Velasco May 17, 2012 at 15:51 #

    is for somebody who need volumen, which she don´t need, she have a perfect body, is a shame, if only the sleeve can be less fitting

  8. dee May 17, 2012 at 16:00 #

    Charlize already has broad shoulders so this dress doesn’t really suit her. Not a good look.

  9. Pritha May 17, 2012 at 16:17 #

    The dress seems like one size too small for her. the shoulder drape as seen on the runway stretches out on her… its shame coz according to me the colour looks amazing on her.

    • oksana May 17, 2012 at 19:25 #

      right, if the shoulder part would have been wider the dress would look like runway version and it would have been awesomeOO

  10. Carolyn May 17, 2012 at 16:20 #

    I sooooo agree with you…great color but the shoulders are giving me fits too!

  11. judith baglione May 17, 2012 at 16:25 #

    unusual for Charlize as she is normally faultless.is the dress not a size too small? it looks too tight.. she does have broad shoulders but i think a size up wouldnt pull in those areas?

  12. easyBlake May 17, 2012 at 16:30 #

    Charlize is wearing it a size too small and the pleats in the shoulder can’t fall correctly. Shame, it’s a nice dress – but Kristen Stewart has really been impressing me this promo run! Nice to see her fresh & upbeat.

  13. Liz May 17, 2012 at 16:33 #

    Love the red. Not a fan of the cut.

  14. Riley May 17, 2012 at 16:35 #

    I have a sneaking suspicion this dress would make anyone look that way. I like how her stylist modified it from the runway though.

  15. fromchi-town May 17, 2012 at 16:44 #

    I thought the same as soon as I looked at it. It makes her look really broad. Its such a shame, since its a beautiful color.

  16. Vicky May 17, 2012 at 16:56 #

    It looks like she’s in a perpetual shrug.

  17. Ashley May 17, 2012 at 17:45 #

    Omg, I imagine it’s really hard to make Charlize look bad on the red carpet….I think this would have worked on a very petite frame – someone like Eva Longoria :)

  18. Tahj May 17, 2012 at 21:35 #

    With a dress like this, it’s all about the posing because it looks weird in the first photo but in the season photo and others it looks great.

  19. Sharon May 18, 2012 at 00:27 #

    She so rarely makes a mistake like this that I think I’ll just ignore this and wait for the next one.

  20. pipsqueak May 18, 2012 at 02:58 #

    You’re so right about her shoulders. She has broad shoulders so this dress doesn’t fit her body type.

  21. EmmaWoodhouse May 18, 2012 at 03:02 #

    I thought, “linebacker” as soon as I saw it. It’s a shame. Some people can pull off the bold shouldered look, and some can’t. I don’t think it suits Charlize’s figure.

  22. Dhppy May 18, 2012 at 04:27 #

    A rare misstep.

  23. Christine May 18, 2012 at 05:16 #

    The shoulders is horrid. Too bad, great color.
