Charlize Theron is many things - a superb actress, passionate humanitarian, and a new mom for starters. To top it all off, the South African-born bombshell has proven time and time again that she is one serious fashion force, on the red carpet and off. With Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus, and Young Adult appearances in the not-so-distant past, this year Charlize has solidified her status the seriously slick (not to mention, totally gorgeous) style-setter she is. Her penchant for edgier LBDs and covet-worthy sandals only rivals her ability to stun in ethereal Dior masterpieces (ballerina-inspired perfection at this year's Golden Globe awards, anyone?). More than that, though, she consistently knows how to toe the line between utterly sexy and ultra sophisticated silhouettes.
Calling upon the likes of Dior, Stella McCartney, Reed Krakoff, and Rag & Bone, Charlize effortlessly transitions from dressed-up to dressed-down; just look to her tailored blazers, cool jeans, and It girl bags for further off-duty styling inspiration. Since the leggy stunner is celebrating her 37th birthday today, we're celebrating accordingly - get the full glamazon scope by clicking through now.
