Charlize Theron In Dior – 2013 Oscars



Charlize Theron kept things simple for her walk down the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ actress wore a Dior Haute Couture white silk bustier dress with embroidered detailing on the peplum.

Harry Winston diamond stud earrings and bracelets offer the only accent to the star’s look, as both her makeup and super short hair are the definition of subtle.

While I do wish Charlize had a bit more visual interest somewhere–a bright lip or a dramatic piece of jewelry–with such a perfectly fitted dress on her flawless figure, it’s hard to fault her for her simplistic approach to this red carpet.

    This is like greek yogurt.

    Not one for the fashion books but she does look fantastic. The white looks amazing oh her and this cropped hair looks striking against a gown.

    I mean…come on…it’s Charlize Theron. Of course, she’s gonna come and put them all to shame.

    I love this short hair on her. It’s so gorgeous.

    Don’t know about best dressed. But she’s the most beautiful woman in the world. So she can rock minimal like no other. She certainly stood out this year.

  5. mimi February 25, 2013 at 21:42 #

    She is the most beautiful blonde ever. This is the way you do simple glamour. With a face that amazing you shouldn’t do too much anyway. Why detract from that beauty? White is also her best color.

  6. Lee Ann February 25, 2013 at 21:11 #

    best dressed of the night. after all the gold , bows , glitzy sequins and ruffles and chiffon the simplicity of this dress is perfection. on this occassion less is more. she makes the rest look like pantomime dames.

  7. Jane February 25, 2013 at 20:26 #

    Absolutely beautiful but would have been even better in an actual colour (anything white is too bridal) or with a dramatic necklace (or both). She is otherworldly in her beauty.

  8. Stel February 25, 2013 at 18:44 #

    Man I CRY EVERYTIME I SEE HER! Incredible!

  9. ash February 25, 2013 at 18:06 #

    FC, do you know whether Charlize also wore Dior during her dance with Chaning Tatum?! Because her dress just flowed sooooo beautifully on stage!!

    • Catherine Kallon February 26, 2013 at 02:12 #

      Not sure…i will try to find out

    A gorgeous look from gorgeous Charlize!

  12. Camille February 25, 2013 at 16:14 #

    It’s just so unfair. She has to shave her head for a movie role and then 2 months later she STILL looks drop dead gorgeous!! At first I was underwhelmed, but the more I saw her the more I was blown away. She is just so tall and lovely and her face is just glowing. She wowed me on the red carpet and then to top it all off, the girl can dance too!! She was amazing in her dance number on stage, and looked divine in the flowy ivory gown she changed into for the dance with Channing Tatum.

    If I didn’t have such a girl crush on her I’d have to hate her.

  13. Gabby M February 25, 2013 at 15:38 #

    nice! a bit too simple wouldve loved to see gold trim on the v and on the bottom of the peplum

  14. Pedro February 25, 2013 at 14:23 #


    How can she looks so perfect?

  15. dee February 25, 2013 at 14:07 #

    She is stunning but I feel like I’ve seen this look on her before.

  16. Andy February 25, 2013 at 09:35 #


    Simple, chic and elegant. I love, love love this look soooo much. One of this best of the night if not the best.

  17. ISIK MATER February 25, 2013 at 07:22 #

    Best Dressed of the night!! And love the pixie haircut!!!

  18. T from Sydney February 25, 2013 at 06:43 #

    Wow SHe is just stunning. She can never look bad. Even with a buzz cut.

  19. Aline February 25, 2013 at 06:42 #

    Leave it to Charlize to finally be the first one who actually rocks a Dior gown in forever. I was hopeful she’d stray from the brand, but at least this time I’m glad she didn’t.

    I don’t know, but when it comes to Charlize I guess the clothes don’t even matter, it’s just the way she so effortlessly carries it. I mean, the dress itself is just okay, but she somehow transforms it and brings it to a whole new level. She’s a goddess indeed.

  20. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 06:34 #

    personally she made me skip a beat when i saw her glide on to the red carpet on TV. regal just simply regal. ice queen.

  21. Joy February 25, 2013 at 06:28 #

    At first glance, I was sort of bored but then when I went back after looking at all the other gowns this is definitely one of my favs of the night. She looks SO effortlessly gorgeous. I didn’t even realize she had a shorter haircut until now. Everything is perfection! She just looks so natural and SO beautiful. She sort of puts everyone else to shame. You know Halle is a beauty like this, but if you compare the dress choices she has a lot to learn. In contrast I strongly disliked her 80’s Dynasty/Dallas dress. BDOTN

  22. Prudence February 25, 2013 at 05:27 #

    this is incredibly boring but for some reason her beauty and that hair makes me like it. Jlawrence should have worn this.

  23. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 04:46 #

    I love her as a person, how can I not love her looks if she looks this flawless and ravishing? This gown fits her like a glove, she looks perfect from head-to-toe.

  24. DM February 25, 2013 at 04:37 #

    Even though the look is extremely understated, I cannot find fault with because of Charlize’s beauty. She looks goddess-like! I love it.

  25. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:53 #

    Flawless. One of the best dressed of the night.

  26. Fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 03:00 #

    This is how it is done… She looks flawless. This is how you stand out from a crowd. This woman is gorgeous.

  27. asherlev1 February 25, 2013 at 02:49 #

    She looked A-MAZING. She won that red carpet.

  28. TL February 25, 2013 at 02:39 #

    Flawless and stunning!

  29. Christopher Teoh February 25, 2013 at 02:28 #

    We can’t deny that Charlize Theron is back to her fashion A-game!! The Snow White and The Huntsman actress wowed in this ivory peplum Dior creation!! Love the minimalist approach that she’s try to translate and love how she pose like a pro!! Definitely one of my favorites in the night!! Charlize Theron spells FLAWLESS!!!

  30. eva February 25, 2013 at 01:53 #

    Best dressed of the night! FLAWLESS…..head to toe.

  31. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 01:53 #

    This is like a boring version of Kerry Washington’s Rodarte gown from the SAGs a few weeks ago. She looks absolutely beautiful of course, and this look isn’t bad at all, but it is boring–especially for the Oscars. 🙁

    • Lashae February 25, 2013 at 10:57 #


  32. CreoleLady February 25, 2013 at 01:45 #

    I prefer Anne Hathaway’s execution of a similar look in the white Chanel over this. Hathaway’s brunette hair helped add color and I liked the texture of the Chanel’s fabric. Beauty-wise, Theron is quite stunning of course.

  33. Elise February 25, 2013 at 01:44 #

    Boring dress. Even more with that color.

  34. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 01:27 #

    Lovely in its simplicity, but nothing to get excited about.

  35. Marina February 25, 2013 at 01:21 #

    Can you imagine if she had Fan Bingbing’s earrings with this dress and that haircut? I would die.

  36. Ramsay February 25, 2013 at 01:21 #

    She is without a doubt the best dressed of the night – fierce and sexy – she is and will always be the perfect face for Dior – This being the best tonight, it remains a tad below last year’s best (Gwyneth)

  37. moja31 February 25, 2013 at 01:19 #

    She’s my best dressed of the night, she looks simply stunning. She truly glided down that carpet, so effortlessly beautiful.

  38. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 01:18 #

    She is gorgeous, and she is pulling off that hair in a way no other could. But seriously, I don’t like the dress. Yes it fits but 1) it’s boring and 2) it’s way too lowcut/sitting too low for my taste). So it’s a no from me.

  39. Angela February 25, 2013 at 01:17 #

    I understand she was going for the clean, minimalist look, but you can go minimalistic without being a complete snore. I would’ve loved a statement necklace in turquoise or orange, and maybe finish it off with a peach or light pink lip color.

  40. justme February 25, 2013 at 01:17 #

    The dress is pretty simple and the whole look should feel bare but for some reason, I love it.
    The fact that her hair & face are heavenly probably helps lol.

  41. ash February 25, 2013 at 01:17 #

    She looks freaking amazing, but this dress is a cross between Anne Hathaway’s Golden Globes Chanel Couture dress and Kerry Washington’s SAG Rodarte dress.

    • Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 01:22 #

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Jai February 25, 2013 at 01:40 #

      Yeah, it feels very repetitive. Plus, I much preferred AH’s GG gown.

    • LondonGirl February 25, 2013 at 16:21 #

      Perhpaps, but she looks better than both of them put together. I just cannot fault this look, and she exudes such charm! Definitely top 5 best dressed of the night.

  42. msd February 25, 2013 at 01:15 #

    So far this red carpet is extremely tasteful and extremely dull. Where are the risks? Where is the personal expression? Blech

    • roxy February 25, 2013 at 22:02 #


  43. Danielle February 25, 2013 at 01:14 #

    SHE is absolutely stunning, and that hairstyle looks amazing on her, but the stiffness of the bodice makes it look like strapped-on armour.

  44. JGH February 25, 2013 at 01:14 #

    I mean this woman is flawless. FLAWLESS.

    • SilentVisitor February 25, 2013 at 01:20 #


      • Christine February 25, 2013 at 01:22 #

        She knock it out of the park! Wow, so regal. We are not WORTHY!!!

      • S-R February 25, 2013 at 16:43 #

        +1. This is such a simple look that can easily be overlooked on someone else. BUT Charlize managed to grab my attention! I love it! She’s so stunning.

    • mm February 25, 2013 at 01:28 #


      Hair, dress, posture, body, personality STUNNING!

    • AnderBoBo February 25, 2013 at 01:34 #

      After “GODDESS”, “flawless” is the word I would use to describe Charlize.

    • Cindy February 25, 2013 at 02:28 #

      She is so freaking gorgeous. I have declared her non-human.

      • Grace Patricia February 25, 2013 at 02:43 #


        It’s easy looking gorgeous going big. It’s really hard to look as magnificent as she is opting for going so minimal.

        • Rashmi February 25, 2013 at 09:22 #

          +2. So true!!! Its difficult looking so magnificently beautiful with such a simple look. Am awestruck!

    • snowlion February 25, 2013 at 02:42 #


    • Beta February 25, 2013 at 10:39 #

      I love this look. Prefer it to JLaw’s

    • Foteini P. February 26, 2013 at 11:49 #

      classic, stunning, flawless!
      best dressed along with Naomi Watts!

    • Francois Bresmal March 1, 2013 at 21:42 #

      Oh Goodness, no we’re not worthy. “The definition of subtle” –> TOTALLY! With such a killing face, who cares about the simplicity of the dress?

    • Jess2 March 2, 2013 at 14:33 #

      So unbelievably beautiful! She really is flawless, I love the crispness of this look!
