Black Magic! Charlize Theron Leads The Glamour At Performing Arts Gala

It's so rare that we get to see Charlize Theron all glammed up for the red carpet, so it's a real treat when we do. And she certainly didn't disappoint at the 2013 Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Gala on Thursday. Never heard of it? Nope, us neither, but the guest list read like the Oscars.

And Charlize was at the forefront of the glamour in her slinky Salvatore Ferragamo gown with amazing crystal gold leaf-accented shoulders.

The A-list actress wore minimal makeup, but had her blonde crop styled into a softer fringed 'do.

And, while it was business at the front, it was party at the back as she turned to show off a drape that exposed some skin.

The bash, which was hosted by Ferragamo, also saw the likes of Gwen Stefani, Amy Adams, Demi Moore and Nicole Richie competing for Best-Dressed. But we think Charlize might have inched it.
