What do we all think of this, kittens?
It’s a bit of a left-field choice for her, but then again, her style in recent years has gotten a little erratic. Reading the tea leaves, we think Miss Charlize made a very smart choice in recent years to deliberately avoid the kind of golden screen goddess looks that characterized her red carpetry for so long. She can, of course, continue to wear that style for as long as she likes, especially because it suits her so well, but she’s too smart not to realize that, as an actress over 40, she needs to make choices now in order to maintain a long career. In other words, she could work a screen goddess look till the cows came home but she’s opted to go for more interesting, more fashionable sorts of looks. It’s kind of the same thing Michelle Pfeiffer did with her style over the years.
Which isn’t to suggest that this is some sort of workmanlike, minimalist approach going on here. This is still a glittery, colorful mini-dress, after all. But we have to admit, we’ve never been huge fans of this belted-tunic style of dress. As a design, it always looks a little under-developed or unresolved. That’s why we’re putting this one out to y’all. It’s a good look, we admit. But our dislike for that silhouette is tempering our assessment so we figured you guys could do the heavy lifting on this one:
