A quick-change artist oozing angelic beauty and statuesque charm, the spotlight is constantly on Charlize Theron’s style: her delicate elegance, her suave yet never overstated sophistication and her sensuality, world-conquering and never in bad taste. An expert when it comes to mixing aesthetic style codes with great mastery, today, at the age of 44 years old, the South African actress is a veritable style icon all over the world.
Her dazzling career began in the early 1990s as a model in Milan where she rose to fame for her participation in the famous Martini advert. She then moved to New York where she began acting and participating in her first blockbuster films such as “The Devil's Advocate” in 1997. She hit the heights of stardom in 2003, when her role in “Monster” won her an Oscar for best actress, a Golden Globe, a SAG Award and the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival.
Her style preferences ride on a wave of boundless fluidity, ranging from masculine to feminine in an alluring mix and match of shirts, trousers and jackets with tailored fits and playing around with the classic contract between black and white. On the red carpet she always sports extremely elegant, ultra-feminine dresses like this light blue mermaid style, with high neck and a slight train, super low at the rear to leave her back fully exposed.
However, outfits that mix masculine and feminine garments remain her strength, also on formal occasions such as the Women’s Gala in Hollywood where she wears a flowery dress paired with a black structured jacket, red sandals that match the pattern of the dress and a leather clutch to match the jacket.
The star’s casual style in her free time also stands out for its non-conventionalism, elegance and grand class. Consisting of denim shirts, jeans, leather trousers, sneakers, baggy jumpers or, again, structured jackets, Charlize’s looks are always well-balanced, expressing her innovative spirit and her openness to change. One example is this outfit, featuring a shirt with rolled up sleeves in a classic shade of light blue, wide drawstring trousers and pointed buckle shoes, a choice that gives her a unique, intriguing allure.
All in all, whether her look is formal or casual, Ms Theron never fails to turn heads and amaze the public, once again affirming her status as a sexy style icon.
