The back of Charlize's dress was completely cut away revealing her entire back and stopping just above her bottom. And we have to say - whoah! She looks stunning.
She accessorised her outfit with a glittering necklace of Bulgaris diamonds plus some jaw-dropping sparklers in her ears, on her fingers and around her wrists.
While her hair cut and colour may have been a last-minute decision, Charlize appeared entirely comfortable with her new style which she wore tucked delicately behind her left ear. She was even rocking a few grey strands right at the crown but appeared entirely unfazed by them leaving mature women worldwide cheering.
Her nails were glossy in ballet pink and eyes dusted with a light shimmer, but her perfect pout sported a bright, modern red orange lipstick which gave the whole look a touch of irreverence and modernity.
All in all, Charlize looks impossibly chic and we're hoping she keeps this style for some time to come.
