When you think of Charlize Theron on the red carpet, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Perhaps, we share the same vision of a woman who seems to have it all together. This talented actress has been gifted with oozing charisma and undeniable beauty. She always has the perfect hair, the expensive red carpet jewelry, and a trendy wardrobe. It is no wonder why Charlize Theron, Mad Max Fury's tough lady, is always on the best-dressed list; there are all reasons to be. Top designers just can't get enough of her; perhaps the very reason she always shines in Dior Couture (remember Charlize's gold dress by Dior?)
There is no denying that Charlize Theron has captivated us with the best red carpet dresses and trendy jewelry there are to see. In honor of this lovely lady, here are some of her best red carpet moments, from her dress to her trendsetting style, that made our world stop. Feel free to take inspiration from this fashion forward actress who always stands out.
Cinema for Peace
Charlize Theron graced the Cinema for Peace red carpet in Berlin with this cool silver number and classic jewelry.
Attending the prestigious Cinema for Peace event in Berlin International Festival as an honorary guest, the "Snow White and the Huntsman" actress came dressed accordingly. She graced the red carpet with a strapless silver, Greek-inspired gown from Gucci. The stacked bracelets and diamond stud earrings all came from Tiffany and Co. I love the draped detail in the gown and the enormous, embellished brooch that holds the dress together. Her jewelry style also complemented the elegant vibe of the gown. Her hairstyle and dark, classic make up suits her look so wonderfully. The Cinema for Peace honored actress Charlize Theron in 2013 for her philanthropic work in helping AIDS victims through the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. A multi-talented woman with a big heart!
Wherever she is, Charlize Theron's hair, make up and jewelry are always on point.
One of Charlize's best red carpet dresses was this one sassy gown she wore for the 2014 Met Gala. She paraded the place with her then-beau Sean Penn and both looking worthy to be called "Hollywood's Hottest Couple." The black and white Dior gown made her look regal in all sorts of way. We cannot get over her statement earrings that are so worthy of our attention; we have heard this earrings came from esteemed jeweler Fred Leighton. This red carpet moment from the hot blonde star will forever live in fashion memory. With this look, she earned her rightful place on the best-dressed list. With this classic ensemble and bold statement jewelry, we are always sure she'd get the award for being such a red carpet stunner.
2004 Academy Awards
2004 Oscars where Theron received her first Academy Award win for Best Actress.
On the 2004 Academy Awards, a South African Hollywood new comer was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the movie Monster. Charlize Theron wowed the crowd not only for her Best Actress win but her jaw-dropping ensemble for the said awards' night. The young Theron captivated everyone with her famous sparkly gold Gucci gown that just pops so beautifully against her newly tanned skin. As for her jewelry, Charlize chose an elegant dangling earring and a diamond studded bangle that complemented her glittery gold gown just right. Theron's chic hairstyle reminds me of that old Hollywood glam that made her look like a blonde bombshell.
Golden Globes 2012
Bridal inspired? Charlize's wedding-inspired look is worth the second glance.
There's no doubt about it, Charlize Theron was the best-dressed star in the 2012 Golden Globes red carpet. She channeled the dainty, romantic bride in a powder pink chiffon gown from Christian Dior. The high-slit detail was too much of a beauty; the look reminds me of glowing brides. The big bow detail apparently stole the show. I can't correctly put a finger on what made her stand out here. The dress is amazing, the makeup is divine, the hairstyle is too die for, and even the shoes are killing it. Selected jewelry pieces from Cartier completed Theron's look for the awards night. How she carried this gown with so much ease and grace is entirely beyond me.
An all white ensemble and a million-dollar jewelry is all she needs to stand out in the red carpet.
Charlize Theron has mastered the red carpet style over the years, and although we have seen her change her hairstyle now and then, her sense of fashion has stayed and probably will stay forever. For the 2013 Academy Awards, the Mad Max Fury star rocked an all-white gown from Christian Dior. I am in love with the neckline of this dress, so edgy and modern. But it was not the gown which made the actress a head turner in the said awards night; it was her jewelry. The Harry Winston trinkets gracing her wrists, and her earrings cost a total of $4.5 million. The jewelry ensemble was composed of a 1958 diamond stud earrings that weigh a total of 59 carats, diamond marquise bracelet, and a diamond marquise-cut ring.
Charlize Theron wearing one of the most expensive Oscar jewelry ever worn in the red carpet.
The "Prometheus" actress did not stop with her stunning 2013 Oscars red carpet appearance. She flattered once more in an all black number that was once again created by Christian Dior. The black dress' color contrasted so beautifully with her blonde hair. The daring neckline made her look ultra-sophisticated. Her jewelry for the event is something you should never underestimate. Theron completed this dazzling red carpet look with a diamond-embellished necklace and diamond-studded earrings from Harry Winston. The overall price of her jewelry is a whopping $15.8 million. The necklace boasts a D-flawless diamond pendant that weighs 39 carats. She finished off this outfit with a pair of diamond stud earrings for a total price of $800,000. How she could walk so vixen-like despite the million-dollar jewelry under her care is mindblowing.
Glowing Beauty: Charlize stood out with this mustard yellow number in Cannes 2015
It seems like Lupita Nyong-o is finally getting some competition with it comes to fierce-colored red carpet gowns. Charlize Theron turned many heads at the 2015 Cannes Festival when she stepped out looking like a spring queen in this bold mustard yellow dress that has a long train going on with it. This Dior number looks sleek on her slender figure. Can we also start talking about those gorgeous statement earrings from Choppard? With so much going on with the dress, the last thing that Charlize needs is a pair of outrageous ear pieces. I love how these earrings added a right amount of "oomph" to the ensemble. The best thing about it all is that Sean Penn was with her as she glided along the red carpet!
Mad Max Fury Premiere
Academy Award Winner Charlize Theron on the Mad Max fury premiere
The veteran actress is nothing short of stunning with her glam Dior strapless dress that she wore to the premiere of Mad Max: Fury Road. She looks entirely different from the role she is playing in the film. She looked red carpet worthy in this chic ensemble of monochromatic colors. The 39 year old actress completed her eye-catching look with stacked Harry Winston bangles. A number of diamonds in those bangles is enough to make me go blind. But hey, they are just the right accessory for the lovely dress. I am used to Charlize Theron's hair all up that seeing her in these loose waves is a refreshing sight. We just love this look from her. This is one of her best red carpet looks so far.
Dark Places Premiere
When her Dark Places movie premiere was announced, we couldn't help but look forward to what she was to wear. Well, we were not disappointed when she sashayed the red carpet in sparkly black number. The dress is sexier than her usual ensembles thanks to its strapless feature and form-hugging attributes. Charlize's capacity to rock whatever shades she wears is admirable. To amp up her dark look, she used some diamond drop earrings and a diamond-studded bangle. With a dress with intricate details, only a minimal jewelry is needed. She looked stunning, no denying about that! She finished off the look with a romantic hairstyle.
Vogue Fashion Fund
The A-lister does it again with this awesome outfit orchestration she did for the 5th Vogue Fashion Fund. Charlize knew sticking with the basics is a fail-proof principle. She rocked the event with a little black sequin dress with a strapless pattern to it. Her blonde hair against the glittery black material made her look like an immaculate vampire who just popped out from some mysterious place. She paired her ethereal outfit with a diamond choker that sealed the deal on her look. Whoever said you can't pair an LBD with a statement jewelry? You can still look fab with a simple black dress on; you just need the right jewelry to go with it. Take it from resident red carpet veteran Charlize Theron!
Charlize Theron does rightfully own her place among the best red carpet stars. She can rock any outfit and stands out wherever she goes. I can't wait to see what she will wear in the Oscar awards night on February 28. We are sure to see another fashion inspiration that will make any red carpet appearance of ours much easier!
