Actress and Style Icon Charlize Theron Bio
South African born actress Charlize Theron is not just one of the hottest celebrities out there, she’s also idolized for her fashion sense, making her one of the fashion darlings.
Theron hit the big time in the late 1990s, becoming one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood appearing in film after film, eventually to receive the Best Actress Oscar for her role in the film based on true events, Monster.
She was flawless in her Oscar-winning gown, a figure-hugging -- Gucci masterpiece that showed off her figure after she slimmed back down, matched with an elegant 20’s -- style.
However, before her acting career and portrayal of a serial killer in Monster when she dramatically transformed her body and image for the role, she was already on the fashion scene as one of the sexiest and well-paid models appearing on the cover of magazines and strutting the catwalks all around the world.
But since breaking into acting, she’s been noticed by everyone and not just for her acting but for her amazing styles that we’ve seen on red carpets at film premiers and award shows.
Whether it’s more of casual and laidback events or one of the biggest parties in Hollywood, she always looks the part making best dress list time and time again, very rarely making a fashion focal.
In recent years, she’s stunned all lookers around the world when promoting her films, attending premiers and prizes.
When promoting Hancock, she appeared in countless outfits ranging from a stunning black high-slatted on Sambo to a stunning short black dress to a gorgeous white strapless, John Galliano for Dior gown.
Dior seems to be one of Theron’s preferred designers and she also attended the premier of Battle in Seattle in a one-shouldered red Dior dress. Also into were partner and director of the film Stewart Townsend who most times appears as her hanky accessory.
She’s won many awards for her acting but she’s also been voted as one of the sexiest women alive, and it’s pretty easy to see why. It’s not just the outfits and a gown that she wears it’s also how she wears them.
Whether attending fashion shows for Christian Dior by John Galliano or the Academy Awards, she always has that movie star look and perfect complexion, even when clad in an oversized black Dior gown fashioned with an enormous flouncy shoulder-bow.
Her relationship with Dior has continued in recent years, appearing in a pale yellow fully Dior gown, complemented by her wavy hair at the Golden Globe’s. While also choosing a pale blue Christian Dior gown covered in raffles of jewel for 2005 Academy Awards.
Apart from long flowing gowns that make her look ridiculously gorgeous, she’s also being known to a pair in outfits a little more -- and flatty while having strappy sandals to bright floral dresses just to change the image or mix things up a little.
At the 2005 Emmy’s, she showed just how sexy she can be by wearing a short black Chanel dress. She paired this with a long necklace and earrings, giving the young Hollywood socialites around for their money.
Constantly gaining major attention, she has turned herself into not just a movie star but at fashion icon.
With her stylish sense of dressing, even a way from the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood lifestyle, she oozes a natural beauty.
Whether she is dressed for a casual outing or a red carpet event, Charlize Theron has an elegance style that will be followed by many for many more years to come.
