06/17/2022 Darling of the Day: Charlize Theron in Dior!


A classic look never goes out of style & is always a go-to for nearly any occasion, which was the case for Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron who celebrated her Africa Outreach Project 2022 Summer Block Party in head-to-toe Dior, which took place at the Universal Studios Backlot this past weekend. While Dior isn’t a brand that all of us budget-friendly Style Darlings can depend on on the regular, we can take inspiration from Charlize’s stylish white button-down shirt (shop here), flared jeans (shop similar here), black pointy toe pumps (shop here), black quilted clutch (shop similar here), & Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Button shirts are a staple for any wardrobe, especially if you work in an environment that requires professional attire, but these tops vary in style & can be worn with a number of different options, including a pencil skirt, linen shorts, or a velvet pants in the cooler months. The below suggested options vary in availability for sizes XS-XXL and range in price from $14.99 – $44.63.

Next, a flared jean is a playful & throwback way of mixing up your look, especially when contrasting a more demure button-down shirt. The below options range in price $40.00-$52.46 and are vary in availability for sizes 0-30.

SHOP: 1. Mya Curvy High-Waisted Barely Bootcut Jeans in Light Wash @New York & Company & 2. Higher High-Waisted Side-Slit Flare Jeans in Rite @Old Navy.

Next, a black pointy toe pump is definitely a classic to incorporate into one’s weekly routine; however, aside from a breezy, cool denim look, like Charlize’s, check out these affordable options ranging in price from $37.99 – $59.99 for special occasions & other professional functions:

When I think of luxury designers, Christian Dior always comes to mind first, especially since I’m constantly reminded of the brand’s unforgettable designs worn by some of the most famous celebrities like spokes models Marion Cotillard, Charlize TheronJennifer Lawrence, as well as red carpet A-listers like model / actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, four-time Oscar-nominee Julianne Moore, & The Great Gatsby‘s Carey Mulligan.

In the latest Resort 2014 Collection, there are plenty of sleek, feminine details in the line, including nipped waistlines, pops of colorblocking, modern menswear cuts, & flowy hemlines. The hefty 58-image gallery below shares the entire collection, & some of my favorite pieces include the separates which can dress up a pair of jeans, skinny pants, or leather shorts. Also, I love the idea of jackets too, which make for perfect toppers to any vacation, office, date night, & casual look.

I’ve been one busy little Style Darling lately & it kills me that I went for so many days without posting! So much has been going on in fashion & the May issues of my favorite magazines are stacking up, collecting dust. I can’t wait to flip through them, but in the mean time, I’ve been scoping out some seriously stylish red carpet looks from our favorite celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore a sleek two-tone Narciso Rodriguez frock during an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Also, trends I’ve been noticing are black & white looks, appropriately on my favorite Kates, such as mom-to-be Kate Middleton in a polka dot Topshop dress & Ralph Lauren jacket, Kate Hudson in a leather-accented belted dress, & Kate Beckinsale‘s patterned suit while attending the TCM Classic Film Festival.

Other looks worth mentioning are Charlize Theron‘s Jason Wu jumpsuit, Claire Danes in a leopard print Lanvin dress, Jennifer Lawrence in a sculpted LBD by David Koma, Jessica Biel in an elegant LBD at the Time 100 gala, Kirsten Dunst in a lace & leather mini dress by Emilio Pucci at the GLAAD Media Awards, & lastly, there’s Olivia Palermo looking flawless in an embellished Louis Vuitton sheath dress while at the opening of the brand’s Munich boutique.
