No one does cool, edgy, and sophisticated style quite like Charlize Theron. The 44-year-old actor has always been one to make a statement on the red carpet — whether she’s donning an eye-catching gown or sporting a diamond bracelet as a hair accessory. Over her 25 years of working in Hollywood, the actor has earned herself an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and plenty of other awards. So naturally, as a woman with top-notch talent, she’s developed a sense of style to match her acting chops. Just look at Charlize Theron’s best looks from over the years, which will take you on the actor’s journey to her signature aesthetic.
While some of Hollywood’s household names develop a taste for classic pieces early on in their careers, Theron has always experimented with her style. The actor — who stars in The Old Guard, which is currently Netflix’s top-watched film — has tried just about every trend that has come and gone. From peak ‘90s looks like printed, form-fitting slip dresses and sheer mesh tops definitive of the early aughts to ensembles channeling Old Hollywood glamour, there’s no doubt Theron has worn it (and unsurprisingly, pulled it off).
