It seems everything Charlize Theron touches turns to gold.

For years we saw her on our television screens bathing in liquid gold for Dior’s J’Adore Eau de Parfum, with everything from her hair to her skin dipped in the golden stuff. Then of course her memorable metallic Tom Ford number at the 2004 Academy Awards, where she won the Oscar for Best Actress for ‘Monster,’ twinning with her prized gold statue. Although a richer hue, her 2017 Oscars dress was also gold, a glimmering lamé gown by Dior. She even wore Tom Ford’s famous galactic sequinned gold dress back in 2015 to the Capitol event in Hong Kong.


At the Costume Designer’s Guild Awards in Beverly Hills overnight, Theron went for gold once more. Honored with the Spotlight Award – an accolade for an actor whose career has highlighted the importance of costume design – the actress wore an exquisite gold gown by Louis Vuitton. The custom dress was embellished entirely in yellow gold – the only glimpse of color came in the form of two black bands which punctuated her arm and wrist. High-neck and slightly inflated at the shoulder, the only peep of skin was a quaint keyhole at the front, while a matching headband completed the Grecian look.

On February 9, Charlize Theron will be up for the Leading Actress at the 2020 Academy Awards. Here’s hoping she can go for gold once more – both sartorially and in terms of talent.
