Charlize Theron has just served the coolest take on a leather skirt and we are here for it. The School for Good and Evil actress, 48, arrived at The Hollywood Reporter Beauty Dinner last night wearing an all-black ensemble with a vampy twist.
The event was held to honour the 'top glam squads' at Holloway House in West Hollywood, and Charlize certainly showed up for the occasion looking glam. The Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star wore a sheer black shirt with an opaque panel down the front which met an opaque black collar. She went for an edgy look, adding a skinny black tie with white piping and a black lace bralet could be seen peeking out of the sheer blouse.
The Last Call: When a Serial Killer Stalked Queer New York producer kept with the rocker chic look with the high-shine leather skirt with oversized pockets and a thick waist panel.
She pushed the sleeves of the sheer shirt up for an effortlessly cool look and wore a silver sparkly bangle for a subtle touch of femininity. The midi skirt came down into a shiny crochet look with intricate holes throughout the piece for a fun take on a simple leather skirt.
Charlize kept it coming with the quirky details. The Atomic Blonde star paired grey knit ankle socks, an unusual choice, with patterned slingback grey and black heels featuring a modest platform.
The mother-of-two went for an effortlessly cool hairstyle so as not to add any soft details to the edgy look. She wore her hair pulled back behind her ears revealing a cool earring with a silver and pearl detail coming from the butterfly of the piece.
Her makeup was the epitome of understated. The multi-award winner wore matte skin with an understated rosy cheek and lip look with zero eyeshadow – just a touch of mascara.
The actress was in good company at the event when it came to displays of sartorial prowess. Kelly Rowland wore a sensational cut-out black dress with metal detail down the side whilst Janelle Monae looked red hot in a bright mini dress with exaggerated shoulder details and matching red heels.
Charlize has been known to rock leather in the past. In September the Mad Max: Fury Road actress stepped out for the Global Citizen Festival wearing a leather mini skirt with an oversized tie detail. She paired it with a cropped boxy white blazer and a pair of biker boots for an edgy look.
The actress has also been known to make unusual footwear choices at star-studded events, akin to the heels and grey socks ensemble from last night. When attending a Dior event in Brooklyn in September, the star paired a dramatic satin skirt with a navy jumper and an interesting shoe choice – a pair of flat gladiator sandals.
More recently, the actress has made glamorous events a family affair. She brought her 11-year-old daughter Jackson to the Dior show in the idyllic Tuileries Garden during Paris Fashion Week. While the Golden Globe winner sported acrisp white shirt and an embellished skirt, her rarely-seen daughter wore a red tartan ensemble with a buttoned-up jacket and pleated skirt. She followed in her mother's footsteps pairing the tartan two-piece with a crisp white shirt.
For the most part, Charlize keeps her children out of the limelight. However, fans delighted in a rare glimpse into their family life when Charlize shared a video of herself and her daughters, Jackson, and eight-year-old August, dancing the night away at the Los Angeles show of Taylor Swift's Eras tour.
