Charlize Theron In Azzedine Alaïa – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Charlize Theron looked sensational on the red carpet at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards in L.A. this evening.

The South African actress was radiant wearing an Azzedine Alaia Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Her black sleeveless gown with scalloped edges and a ruffled skirt made her stand out on a red carpet full of summery dresses.

I love the side swept braided bun and the simple accessories which included a Bvlgari ring, a black clutch and gold Giambattista Valli strappy sandals.

Perfection personified. She never disappoints on the red carpet.

You may remember that Dasha Khukova wore this same gown in pink last year.

Charlize Theron In Reed Krakoff – Variety’s 10 Directors To Watch Event

Following the 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala, Charlize Theron attended Variety’s Indie Impact Awards & 10 Directors to Watch brunch, which is part of the film festival.

She looked effortless, as always, wearing a green Reed Krakoff Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

The sleeveless green silk dress with black panels and a draping effect around the waist was paired with black accessories including Christian Louboutin strappy sandals and a matching Lanvin ‘Sartorial’ envelope clutch.

Her styling was kept very simple with a low ponytail and minimal makeup.

Charlize Theron In Lanvin – 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala

Charlize Theron attended the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Saturday night, accepting the award for ‘Best Ensemble’ for ‘Young Adult’ with her co-stars.

The actress wore a simple Lanvin Spring 2012 LBD.

She paired her black fitted dress with Cartier yellow gold and black onyx panther bracelet and yellow gold and diamond drop earrings.

Is it just me, or does this ensemble not scream ‘Jennifer Aniston’ from head to toe?

Little black dress, simple strappy sandals, gold jewelry – check.

That being said, this is a relatively simplistic look that totally works for Charlize.

With a revealing slit and padded shoulders, the dress strays from becoming too boring.

Are you a fan of this classic look, or would you prefer a little more oomph from Charlize?

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Zhang Ziyi or Charlize Theron

Zhang Ziyi wore this polka-dot Christian Dior Resort 2012 dress during the ‘Love for Life’ Rome Film Festival photocall last month.

It’s far from being my favourite Dior look. The open sleeves are particularly jarring, but that pretty necklace provides a nice distraction.

Charlize Theron wore the same dress with a black blazer on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ recently to promote her new movie, ‘Young Adults’.

Whilst the dress is not great, the blazer is too heavy for it, so Zhang wins for me.

Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney – ‘Young Adult’ LA Premiere

Charlize Theron smoothed out her wavy locks for a sleek, straight hairdo on the red carpet for the LA premiere for ‘Young Adult’.

The blonde beauty wore a Stella McCartney Spring 2012 dress.

Now, many of you have struggled to like a single Stella McCartney Spring 2012 look on the red carpet, so how does Charlize ‘I can do no wrong on the red carpet’ Theron fair in this navy-and-white asymmetrical dress with mesh panels and embroidered details.

I think that if even Charlize can’t pull this off then there is no hope for anyone else.

Apart from the fact that the dress appears to be a tad too tight, this would’ve worked better for me if it was just one colour. This colour combo is jarring, to say the least, and incredibly unflattering around the bust.

The good news is she didn’t let us down in the footwear department as she donned a pair of sexy bondage-style Manolo Blahniks.

Charlize has plenty of time to redeem herself, as it was announced yesterday that she’s been nominated for the Best Actress Golden Globe for her role in ‘Young Adult’.

Charlize Theron In Christian Dior – ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’

Charlize Theron visited ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ to promote her latest movie, ‘Young Adult’, earlier this week.

She wore a Christian Dior Resort 2012 maxi dress.

Her polka-dot long-sleeve dress, with a necktie and pendant dangling from the waist tie, was worn with a black Stella McCartney blazer to prevent the look from feeling too casual.

Charlize styled her wavy locks into a chic updo and accessorized with Melinda Maria bangles and gold-hooped earrings.

Snakeskin crisscross Reed Krakoff ‘Boxer’ sandals completed her look.

Charlize Theron In Balenciaga – Mr Chow’s

Charlize Theron was spotted heading to Mr Chow’s for dinner on Tuesday night.

The actress was still wearing the same Balenciaga dress she wore for her guest appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’.

Her navy-and-white long-sleeve dress with a bow at the waist was paired with a black leather jacket.

Like Jennifer Aniston, Charlize has a stunning shoe collection. On this occasion she showcased a gorgeous pair of snakeskin crisscross Reed Krakoff ‘Boxer’ sandals.

On the Ellen show she kept her jewelry and makeup to a minimum, but she vamped things up for her night out by adding red nail polish, a dark red lip colour and gold bracelets.

Charlize completed her look with an Alexander McQueen black folk clutch which is available to purchase from AlexanderMcQueen.com.
