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.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Charlize Theron In Christian Dior Couture & Olivia Palermo In Parker

Charlize Theron eventually won your votes for best dressed this week after a close battle with Zhang Ziyi.

The blonde actress blew you away in her Christian Dior Couture electric blue sparkling strapless dress.

I wasn’t crazy about most of the looks this week, or maybe I was suffering from Cannes withdrawals.

Olivia Palermo was my favourite. I adored her summery street-style ensemble which included a cute pair of Parker shorts.

Charlize Theron Loves Her…Balenciaga ‘Papier’ Bag

Charlize Theron has a new favourite bag; the Balenciaga ‘Papier’ Bag.

As a celeb she of course has this bag in two colours; black and navy.

On Monday she departed LAX carrying the black version wearing a light grey blazer with black jeans and silver sequin flats.

The following day she was spotted on the East Coast carrying the navy blue version dressed in a tailored slate grey blazer, a black top, teal coloured jeans and Jimmy Choo ‘Imogen’ caged sandals.

Earlier today Charlize was papped leaving Claridges hotel in London carrying the black version.

On this occasion she wore blue-and-white striped Stella McCartney shirt paired with The Row ‘Moto’ stretch-leather leggings-style pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Decoupata’ ankle boots.

I love the last two looks. It looks like she’s giving Miranda Kerr a run for her money in the street style stakes.

Charlize Theron In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Prometheus’ London Premiere

Charlize Theron sparkled on the blue carpet for the world premiere of her latest movie, ‘Prometheus’ in London this evening.

Her Christian Dior Couture dress thankfully matched the carpet as I couldn’t take another LBD.

The fully sequined midnight-blue bustier dress with a side split was styled with black Dior strappy sandals and Bulgari jewels.

It’s a simple enough look, but in that colour she is radiant; head-to-toe perfection in fact.

Smooth blonde locks and a nude lip colour completed her look.

Charlize Theron In Lanvin – The Today Show

Charlize Theron was in New York City yesterday promoting her new movies ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘Prometheus’ on ‘The Today Show’.

The actress wore yet another LBD, this time from the Lanvin Fall 2012 collection.

Enough is enough, I’m bored. I would rather accept a Kate Middleton repeat than another black dress from Charlize.

Geez, what happened to her mojo? Yes, she looks chic, blah, blah, but it’s Groundhog Day whenever I see her.

The Golden Globe Awards and the BAFTA Tea Party seem like a lifetime ago.

Her silk/neoprene sheath dress was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Decoupata’ ankle boots.

Get Charlize Theron’s Smoldering Eyes

Charlize Theron has been hitting the red carpet hard this month on an international tour promoting her new film ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. And, as always, she has been accompanied by her make-up artist, international beauty expert to Dior, Shane Paish.

‘There are two looks that I tend to lean towards when it comes to Charlize,’ says Paish. ‘One is the dark, smoky eye and pale lip (she looks amazing in this!) and the other is a softer, more bronzy look.’

Either way he always sticks to the basics: defined brows with contoured eyes and highlighted cheekbones.

To create a Charlize-style smoky eye, Paish first uses a flesh-coloured eyeliner on the inside of the lid to open the eye and blend into the skin tone, killing any pink or redness the inner lid may have.

Then he lines the upper and lower lash line with waterproof liner and coats the lashes with tons of Diorshow mascara.

Here are some of his favourite products he uses to create Charlize’s looks:

Skin: DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Crème-Gel Makeup and Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation.

Eyes: Dior Crayon Eyeliner – Waterproof and Diorshow Extase Mascara.

Lips: Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Tulip Pink #448 and Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Beige Tweed #227.

Cheeks: Diorblush in Pink in Love #889
and Diorskin Poudre Shimmer Ultra Shimmering All Over Face Powder in Amber diamond.
