When it comes to glamorous evening attire, there's a fail-safe style rule to follow: simple is often best. Need proof? Charlize Theron is a shining example.
The 39-year-old actress attended the Paris premiere of Dark Places on Tuesday wearing a couture dress from her favourite brand, Christian Dior. The strapless design was simple but the sequin and lace detailing meant the rest of Charlize's look could be stripped back.
A pair of matching sandals, subtle eye make up and a tousled updo were all she needed to complete her Dior outfit. Just more proof that this screen siren is the queen of effortlessly elegant red carpet style.
Theron stars alongside British actor Nicholas Hoult and Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's mystery novel. Of course Gone Girl, the follow up book to Dark Places, saw Rosamund Pike receive an Oscar nomination.
Could there be another Academy Award (and a queue of designers waiting to dress her) on the way for Charlize?
