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.

    The dress is elegant from the front (a bit too low from the back) and she looks very statuesque. I do wish that the gold embellishment was a bit lighter and more distributed. Her hair is in a bit of an awkward stage too.

    so im not sure why this is getting so much love cause its a fairly average look. I mean a backless black dress with some gold detailing has some people uttering bdoty??? totally confused by that! I really do not like her hair either and her makeup isnt nearly as amazing as during the oscars she truly looked heavenly there.

    This is very ‘eh’ to me. I mean, the dress is fabulous, and she is facially stunning, but I’m not feeling the styling at all. Mainly I wish the hair wasn’t so fluffy. Some spikey texture or all slicked back would have been preferable.

    LOVE THIS! BDOTW for sure. And definitely a contender for BDOTY. She looks gorgeous

    Bout time

    Stunning, h2t.
    I normally dislike big-shouldered dresses but she’s totally sold me on this one. BDOTW candidate for sure!

  8. anonymous as always October 18, 2013 at 15:53 #

    Very very nice!!! Wise choice to let the styling simple and minimal and I looove the hair 🙂

    BDOTW. I love the gown. The gold leaves on the shoulders are amazing, but Charlize has such presence. Such natural elegance and glamour that when she makes her rare appearances on the red carpet she outshines everyone else because it’s about what she brings to the look. She is special.

    • Rebecca Z October 18, 2013 at 16:24 #

      I totally agree. She is elegant and calm. She really shows off the clothes but without losing who she is in them. She comes across as so grounded in addition to being so beautiful.

      • KatieKate October 19, 2013 at 18:42 #

        I really agree with both of the above comments. Sometimes someone just has something special about them-you can call it many things-it is many things. I kind of see it as grace. Cate, Diane, Charlize, and vety few others truly possess it.

  10. Lil's October 18, 2013 at 14:45 #

    Amazing! BDOTW & BDOTY please

  11. kathryn October 18, 2013 at 14:36 #

    BDOTW worthy is an understatement! Flawless!

  12. justme October 18, 2013 at 14:09 #

    Regal… as usual.
    She’s having fun growing her hair out, I like it.

  13. Joy October 18, 2013 at 14:03 #

    Seriously, could she be more beautiful? Love! She is a fashion god I tell you! Really I’m speechless.

    The only thing is, have I seen this dress before? I know I have, Kate Hudson?

    Absolutely stunning!!! Most definitely BDOTW if not a BDOTY contender!

    I miss the Charlize of old. Now she seems to wear mostly black or white. The gold at the shoulders seems like something out of the 80’s disco era and not in a good way. Some things don’t need to be re-visited. Not feeling the hair either, wonder if she’s growing it out. Charlize, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston bore me to death.

    • missy October 18, 2013 at 15:30 #

      Because when you look like Charlize it’s best to not distract from that great beauty with bright colors. The look should be about the woman, not the dress. You are wrong on the gold embellishments. It is sophisticated and glamorous. It adds so much to the look.

      • CreoleLady October 18, 2013 at 16:46 #

        Krystle Carrington called and is looking for her evening gown back.

        You are welcome to like the dress and to disagree with me. You are not welcome to tell me that I am wrong about my own opinion. I do not like the gold embellishments. Theron has looked magnificent in colors in the past, which I greatly prefer over the constant black and white.

        • Missy October 19, 2013 at 00:45 #

          You are right. I meant it is my opinion that you are wrong. That’s what I think. The gold embellishments are glamorous. If Carrington had worn this, it would still be amazing for today. Theron’s color is white. Look up pictures of her wearing white. She looks like an angel and her beauty shines best. Black is always tasteful and elegant when worn right. This is far from a boring LBD. The embellishments make it unique and elegant. Colors distract from her beauty in my opinion.

          • CreoleLady October 19, 2013 at 10:18 #

            Lol, you still don’t get it. Whatever. The irony? I have not said that I think you are wrong. You like what you like. That doesn’t make you right or wrong, just different from me. Do have the same respect for my opinions. If you can not, do me a favor and do not engage me.

            • CreoleLady October 19, 2013 at 11:06 #

              PS. I love this blog. This is the only place where I can get involved in a spirited discussion of gold embellishments, lol.

    Charlize looks perfect! BDOTW

    Love love love

  18. Anne October 18, 2013 at 12:35 #

    Perfect in every way. I too will be adding her to my BDOTY list!

  19. Larissa October 18, 2013 at 12:34 #

    Stunning! Elegant yet effortless and playful. It’s always a pleasure seeing her on the red carpet. BDOTW!

  20. jeremyrain October 18, 2013 at 11:55 #

    Consistently majestic. I don’t know about you but she’s up with Cate Blanchett’s level for me.

    • Alex October 18, 2013 at 14:06 #

      I think she is much more beautiful than Cate, I mean the face. LOL

  21. jo October 18, 2013 at 10:45 #

    Perfection. Dare I say BDOTY contender?

    I couldn’t agree more: BDOTW

    • Yeliz October 18, 2013 at 14:33 #

      BDOTW worthy without a doubt. She looks breathtaking.

  25. Caro Chanel October 18, 2013 at 09:56 #

    I really, really like this. This is very elegant and yet the backside is kind of playful.

    Flawless as usual.

    • julyol1972 October 18, 2013 at 17:24 #

      +1 She is just so freakin stunning! At this point I’m wondering if she bathes in the blood of virgins or something? Lol!

    • Christine October 21, 2013 at 12:53 #

      Flawless fore sure! Wow!
