Anatomy of a look; Charlize Theron

Hollywood A-lister Charlize Theron commands the red carpet for her new action film Atomic Blonde. Let’s suss out her style, writes Edith Bowman.

Get Shirty

The shirt dress - how we love a multi-tasker. Wear it bare-legged in warmer weather or layer over an autumnal polo neck and cigarette trousers. Belt it; leave it loose - the options are as endless as Theron’s PVC thigh high boots.

Shirt dress, & Other Stories, €89

Cosmic Girl

Charlize’s ball-busting M16 persona shows her softer side with a touch of celestial fine jewellery - the perfect antidote to her fierce black ensemble. Perfect for a Hollywood star.

Rose gold layering star necklaces, Johnny Loves Rosie, €20.12

Thigh High

You heard it first. Autumn/winter 17’s must-have is the vertiginous thigh high boot. Difficult to pull off? Oh, yeah. That said, Theron’s low-key hair and make-up dials down the drama and makes this trend look oh-so-easy.

Suede thigh high boots, & Other Stories, €295
