    I discovred her in The Devil’s Advocate along with Al Pacino, i can’t beleive she was only 21, playing this complex mature woman at this young age , she marked me in that role most of the actresses of that age play in teenage movies.

    Me too, i liked her also in the Cider House Rules, what i like about her is her large creative work and independence , and especially her risky brave roles that not many actresses would go for, she is not afraid to play unlikable antihero characters, she indeed made an impact with indie movies, and she is such a versatile actress who can fit and switch different genre, she was terrific in Young Adult.

    She's beautiful but... Says:

    She’s undeniably beautiful… classic facial features, beautiful eyes… a perfect face… but there is always something off about the way she dresses. I am not sure what it is. Not everyone has to wear perfect outfits, but most women have a trademark style… Angelina likes simple lines, Gwen Stefani likes unusual yet tasteful fashion that usually works, Zooey Duschanel has a cute quirky look, Sienna Miller has good fashion sense, so does Claire Daines… but Charlize Theron just doesn’t seem to have fashion sense… Rachel McAdams is another who lacks in fashion sense. A shame because, Charlize and Rachel are beautiful. The right fashion could accentuate their beauty.

    @She’s beautiful but…:

    Theron doesn’t have a fashion sense hahahaha? she is considered a fashion icon in the fashion industry, always rei,vents her style her hair cuts, always listed on top of fashion magazines, and risky sometimes she never goes for the safe , no wonder why she is the DIOR face, being picked by the biggest desingers being Galliano’s muse and had been in the past Tom Ford muse

    A Jolie lol no with her same black dark outfits and boring plain flat dresses seriously lol there is not even a comparison, charlize with her sense of style and model body is from a whole different world when it comes to fashion compared to the ones listed, no wonder why singers like Beyonce and Rihanna mentionned her as being their favorite stylish celebrity , till the hair cuts Rihanna’s hair cuts inspired from aeon flux…

    In response to the poster who talked about fashion. Someone who got a fahsion sense, is someone who is always creative always try different things, who is often copied , it’s not someone who stuck in the same crappy boring point, there is no sense here, i remember Charlize was one of the first who started the big pompadour dior dresses and chignon, her oscar 2004 Gucci dress was copied by Katherine Heigl at the Emmys, her 2005 blue oscar Dior dress was copied by Penelope Cruz 1 or 2 years later at the oscars exact same cut but were in pink, her orange oscar dress is considered one of the most beautiful dresses of the oscar decade top dresses, it was in 2000 and if im not wrong jolie was having such a weird look and dress.

    Love it!!! kudos to Charlize and to her two decades of work, to her talented accomplishements, for only a 36 yo ,im proud of her, many to comes..

    She should wear green more often because the way navy blue brings out blue eyes beautifully, emerald green brings out her gorgeous green eyes beautifully. I love that she’s not tanning too much like she was 7 years ago. She has a classically beautiful face and her features stand out more when it’s not hiding behind the tanner.

    Charlize doesn’t win only the Vanguard Award yesterday guys , she also wins the style title of Palm Springs the best dressed.

    read this
    Charlize Theron not only received the “Ensemble Award” with her Young Adult cast mates, she was also a shoo-in for best dressed.
    Charlize’s LBD was anything but basic. Her Spring 2012 dress had properly made bold shoulders. And it didn’t hurt that Charlize had the height and posture to pull it off. The clean silhouette, and the revealing skirt showed off the Oscar winner’s fabulous figure.

    A beautiful dress certainly helps make an outfit a success, but the styling pulls everything together. Charlize Theron picked an elegant pair of sandals to go with her dress. Her simple bun let those padded shoulders speak for themselves. Stunning yet simple jewelry, and a metallic clutch completed her Palm Springs attire.

    Yep, its Charlize’s week ! Congrats for both awards. She definitely deserved them. Hope to see her among Oscar Nominees (or winners!!) this year (fingers crossed!).
    Charlize Theron looks so good in green. Or black. Or red. Or white. Etc. :)

    Sorry to offend you Pat Says:

    @pat: I knew I’d get in trouble for posting my opinion… don’t get me wrong, I really like Charlize Theron… and I know she is a Dior face now, because she does have a beautiful face. I mean look at the last 10 things she’s worn lately. I don’t know something is honestly off to me. The outfits don’t accentuate her beauty. I know Angelina wears very classic stuff that’s functional yet a somewhat bland, but that’s her style… at least she has a style. Charlize style is random. Maybe, it’s just my personal opinion. I just don’t like the way she dresses. And it makes sense, because I don’t really like Rihanna’s or Beyonce’s style either. Do you seriously like this green dress? It’s okay, but I think she could have done better. Sorry to offend you though. You’re probably a fan of hers. What do I know… just my opinion.
