Custom is the new black as more and more celebrities turn to designers for not only the latest and the best in their fashion presentations but also special tweaks or dresses created especially for them to wear on the Red Carpet!
Charlize Theron is one of the most beautiful actresses and also one of the most graceful Red Carpet appearances. Her 2014 Oscars black dress was apparently created for her by Raf Simons, based on designs he sent on the Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection’s runway. A mermaid silhouette dress with sheer straps in a perfectly tailored upper flattering Charlize’s natural beauty.
Charlize’s was a classic dress, with a sheer train twist complete with a stunning Harry Winston jewelry ensemble (notice the fantastic necklace – la piece de resistance, the very cherry on top of her timeless look tonight). I tried to gather as many relevant designs from the Fall 2014 Dior Couture collection, gowns that contributed to the final look of what Charlize wore on the Oscars Red Carpet tonight!

She completed her statuesque look with equally black nails, a side swept hairdo that wouldn’t reveal the length of her short hair (wouldn’t you expect her to turn and reveal an intricate low bun?) and a minimal makeup with accent on the eyes. Although she was wearing a black dress, Charlize Theron is definitely one of my best dressed at the 2014 edition of the Oscars because of her natural grace and elegance!
Charlize’s date for this edition of the Academy Awards was her own mother, Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz, who was wearing a matching black dress – not as glamorous as her daughter’s, but beautiful and timeless nevertheless!
Oh, and just as a bonus, since she attended the ceremony without her recent love: a picture of her and Sean Penn together at an earlier event celebrating Pharrell’s Happy. Weren’t they looking simply ‘crazy in love’?(images getty, styledotcom)
