The very best thing about Charlize is that she can go back and forth between the persona of a cool chick (who seems like she’d be fun, just in her sweats, on a couch, with a bag of cheese curls on her lap, a wineglass in her hand, and a shitty movie on the TV) and a devastatingly, glacially sexy ice princess in the Hitchcock mold. And while we get that little gay tingle every time she works the latter persona effortlessly, we’re not really feeling this one:

Is that kind of a hot dress? Yes. Is Charlize also hotter than a Southern Baptist church in August? Oh, yes. But this feels a little half-assed. It’s true that Charlize could look devastating with a blowout, some makeup, and any old dress that showed off her figure, but we find ourselves looking at this and trying to figure out what’s missing. She could’ve used some bigger earrings and maybe a necklace. She could’ve also used an entire skirt, instead of the 3/5 of a skirt she’s sporting. She’s gorgeous, and this isn’t exactly a terrible look, but we’re not really feeling it.
But Char? We are ready and waiting for our couch invite.
