Charlize Theron In Lanvin – 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Adding some A-list star power to the red carpet, Charlize Theron attended the 2012 MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, California, held on Sunday evening.

The South African actress stood out in a strapless red Lanvin Fall 2012 peplum dress.

Looking absolutely gorgeous in the bright hue, we are rejoicing the end of Charlize’s all-black phase.

She accessorized the dress with a pair of metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ heeled sandals and a gold Cartier bracelet.

I’m particularly grateful that Charlize did not opt for yet another pair of strappy black heels, a style she so often chooses, which would have been much too heavy for this particular dress.

Smoothed-out locks and sun-kissed makeup finish the look.

    Shoes are great, the dress doesn’t flatter her figure. Once again not impressed with her look.

    I completely dislike those shoes with this dress, i think it should have been worn with something less dainty.

    Much better than the previous red dress (was it the Row?) that didn’t fit her
    Love love love

    This dress falls very flat on Charlize. I don’t like the way the bodice fits her or the model, and the peplum looked better on the model. Her shoes and hair are good, but I feel a bit bored.

      Actually her hair looks a bit limp…I was just looking more closely at it. She’s gorgeous but this wasn’t a great look for her, I think.

    Does Jimmy Choo make those in every color? I’ve seen them in black, nude, and now gold. Guess they are the celeb ladies’ go-to strappy heel! Looks good on her. She’s got such a stunning face too.

      I think so

    • EmmaWoodhouse June 4, 2012 at 15:48 #

      Yes, they come in a million different colors–orange, navy blue. You can buy them on Saks. 🙂 I think they’re a really awesome shoe!

    Ummm BEST DRESSED maybe, definitely?

    She looks classy, sexy and completely appropriate for the event. I love everything about this look.

    I just think this is OK. I am not crazy about this dress on her. Shoes are great.

    Love this look.
    Beautiful dress (thank God, she’s wearing a colour!), nice shoes, stunning woman.

    Those Lance sandals sure are popular. I understand why. Love this look.

    This is gotta be one of my best dressed (if not best dressed) from MMA 2012. Flawless, chic, i can’t find any fault here.

  12. Alina June 4, 2012 at 07:24 #

    Charlize is gorgeous, the dress is beautiful, the shoes are the perfect choice … but something is missing for me.

  13. Yeliz June 4, 2012 at 07:05 #

    I LOVE this amazing look! The dress and the shoes in combination with her flawless beauty, makes her one of the best dressed of the night.

  14. Tina June 4, 2012 at 07:05 #

    Wonderful dress! Love her in it – sort of reminds me of Catherine’s McQueen dress, but fresher and better styled.

  15. Jess2 June 4, 2012 at 06:48 #

    Fantastic!! So happy that she didn’t go for balck heels. She looks so stunning 😀

    I know FC, I would’ve died too if she had more black in her look. Luckily gives us a day off from her Black Plague.

    The dress is amazing on the runway but looks rather ordinary on Charlize, though that certainly is not her fault. I belt is was amazing in real life.

    ChaT is making me swoon here. I was tempted to say meh, but this is Charlize’s modern sophisticated style.

    she looks stunning in this dress!!!


  18. Sea June 4, 2012 at 06:36 #

    Beautiful! Not everyone can be in this outfit and still look so elegant and effortlessly chic. She is amazing!
