Best Dressed Of The Week – Charlize Theron In Alexander McQueen & Dev Patel In Ferragamo

Best Dressed Of The Week - Charlize Theron In Alexander McQueen & Dev Patel In Ferragamo

Charlize Theron and Dev Patel were our best dressed this week.

We were captivated by Charlize in her elegant black Alexander McQueen gown. When she’s on this kind of form, there really is no competition—hence the win by a very long margin.

We love it when dudes step up and step out of the box; so, it was no surprise to see Dev in his rich, maroon Ferragamo suit and Matt Goss shimmering in electric-blue take the lead this week.

Dev won by just 2%, so I hope this will be a signal to menswear stylists that we want to see more colour on the red carpet.

Charlize Theron In Alexander McQueen – Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala

Charlize Theron In Alexander McQueen - Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala

Charlize Theron took to the red carpet for the Wallis Annenberg Center For Performing Arts Inaugural Gala held at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening looking absolutely breathtaking – as she always does.

The South African actress wore an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2013 black draped gown with the brand’s signature gold embroidered details.

Letting the gown do all the work, she opted for minimal makeup, with her blonde crop styled into a softer fringed ‘do.

A black manicure, Harry Winston jewels and a black Ferragamo clutch completed her BDOTW-worthy, jaw-dropping look.

Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Charlize Theron attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where she was honoured for starting the ‘Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’.

The South African actress kept her look very simple wearing a cream Stella McCartney Resort 2014 python jacquard dress with an extra tied detail at the halter neckline to cover up an injury.

Her loose-fitted frock with draped sides was styled with Giuseppe Zanotti black pumps featuring a cream toe-cap, a black-and-white heart-print Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ clutch and pearl earrings.

Charlize looks beautiful and polished as always; sporting side swept bangs in her sleek crop do, but I’m neither a fan of the clutch nor the shoes with this look.

The clutch is too big and the shoes too heavy.

Charlize Theron In Jason Wu – 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Charlize Theron In Jason Wu - 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

At the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, Charlize Theron struck a strong pose on the red carpet at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live on Saturday.

The South African beauty, who was a presenter at the event, gave us another red-carpet jumpsuit moment with her look from Jason Wu’s retro-laced Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The wide-leg, halter silhouette lost some of its edge with the addition of the metallic braided sash and gold-medal charm. I much preferred the sleeker black belt from the lookbook.

But, if there’s anyone who can pull off this mannish-chic look, it’s the statuesque Charlize who opted for Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry to go with her short platinum quiff and girly fuchsia pout.

At one point in the evening, she even topped off her masculine ensemble with an added flourish: a black fedora, which she borrowed from Bill Clinton.

Charlize Theron In Madewell & Current/Elliott – Out In LA

Charlize Theron Madewell

Charlize Theron and her son, Jackson, were spotted grabbing some frozen yoghurt from Pinkberry’s in LA yesterday.

The actress sported an effortless off-duty look, pairing a camel-coloured Madewell zebra-motif sweater with black Current/Elliott zipper jeans while carrying her son in one arm.

Joie’s printed loafers, chic shades and a gold wallet completed her look.

Known for wearing Dior Couture gowns, I love that this look is so attainable.

You just gotta love how cute young Jackson is in his dark look with colourful socks.

Dior was the winner this week, but we picked two very different gowns.

You selected the beautiful princess-y gown worn by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, while I picked the sleek peplum gown worn by Charlize Theron.

BDOTW Oscars Men

No surprised that you voted Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, as he has pretty much dominated this poll since time began.

I picked Channing Tatum. Partly because he looked so dapper in his black three-piece Gucci suit and partly because I have a major crush on him.

Charlize Theron In Dior – 2013 Oscars

oscars-charlize-theron

 

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.
