Charlie Theron wears Dior, attends Met Gala with Sean Penn: goddess-chic?


My mouth just fell open when I saw that The Fiercest Bitch In All The Land, Charlize Theron, brought SEAN PENN as her date to the 2014 Met Gala. I mean, of course, we all know that Charlize and Sean have been dating for more than four months. But to walk one of the biggest red carpets of the year together?! That’s huge. And it’s on HER terms too. This isn’t the Oscars, where Sean is on equal footing as an Oscar winner and Hollywood power player. This is the fashion world, where Charlize has been ruling for more than a decade. This feels more like Charlize showing off her man at the big event.

Anyway, Charlize and Sean not only came together, they stuck to the theme, which was supposed to be black-and-white. Anna Wintour even wanted all of the dudes to wear white-tie. I can only think that Charlize just dressed Sean Penn. Like, did she order his suit?! Charlize’s dress is Dior, but of course. Her dress is stunning, and I like the black jacket on her shoulders too. It’s a very sophisticated look from a woman who almost always looks great. PS… I love her hair and her jewelry.




Oh, and Marion Cotillard was there too, also in Dior (she’s a Dior Girl, just like Charlize and J-Law). I kind of think Marion got the short end of the stick from Dior – Charlize got a goddess dress and Marion got a short party frock? It’s a cute dress, it’s just more appropriate for a movie premiere, not the Met Gala. PS… LOOK AT HER SHOES.

    Met Gala 2014 – where fashion goes to die. I did not like a single gown at this year’s gala.

  2. reddy says:

    The cut of his pants looks strange, especially in the first picture. It makes something with his legs. This would be a great cut for a women’s suit pants.

  3. Jade says:

    Charlize doesn’t look stunning in the dress, she just looks hard in the photos. Maybe this is a case of she looks better in real life than in these photos.

  4. Luls says:

    Sean Penn looks like a fug Oompa Loompa next to the goddess that is Charlize. He drags her down!
    Maybe he is wonderful father figure to Jackson and treats her like a queen, but my superficial side can’t help but cringe everytime I see them together -_-

  5. ImWithTheBand says:

    Love Marion, but those shoes are right up there as the fugliest footwear in the history of fugly footwear.

  6. capepopsie says:

    Not liking anything either! What´s wrong with them?
    Don´t they have mirrors?

  7. mytbean says:

    Charlise is a statuesque woman but this dress makes her look squat and wide. And maybe I just have my man hater shoes on today but Sean appears to be dealing out an insecure, I own this woman, vibe. But – Sean doesn’t look half bad here… not nearly as hammy as usual – well in half the pics anyway…

  8. TheOriginalPuppy says:

    Ol Sean does alright. Doesn’t he?

    • Lauren says:

      Charlize is a good influence on Sean. This is the Best he has looked in over 10 years. Charlize has a perfect figure- but her dress is very unflattering.
      Sean looks so proud to be with Charlize-i am amazed they are still together. I guess they might prove us all wrong

  9. als says:

    I think Charlize Theron’s dress is pretty basic, but she really doesn’t need anything more complicated. Love the hair and the jacket too. And props to Sean Penn, never liked him, but something tells me it takes guts to simply approach “The Fiercest Bitch In All The Land” (well said) and he did more than approaching.
    This woman can add serious value to a man!

    I expected better from Marion Cotillard, she usually has amazing outfits, but this one doesn’t look so amazing. (the shoes, even the hair and make-up look wrong) Next time…

  10. Jade says:

    Oh wow I like Charlize’s bag.

    The white one not the tanned leathery one she’s clutching in the other hand.

  11. Kiddo says:

    Jebus, they even managed to mangle Charlize’s figure, and that’s a difficult task.

    Also, is her new nickname “Charlie”?

  12. Hmmm says:

    I like Charlizes’ dress, very female and elegant.
    My favourites were Rhianna and Victoria Beckham (although she is way too thin)
    And, probably in the minority, I loved Lupitas fish net get up! Love that she has some fun with fashion. The girl is radiant and drop dead gorgeous!

  13. blue marie says:

    Minus the bacon on the side, Charlize looks all right, not her best look though.
    And I hate everything on Marion, those shoes are awful.

  14. Jackson says:

    Charlize almost always gets it right. Total win with this one, too.
    LOL@Marion. Just no, honey.

  15. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I don’t love it, it makes her look hippy, which must be a fashion crime as her body is perfect. And I can’t even look at him beside her, they just skeeve me out as a couple. She was a young victim of domestic violence and is now with a known abuser? Yuck.

    Marion is kind of cute, the colour is lovely, shoes are all over the place/hard to take in though.

  16. GiGi says:

    I think she looks great! As for Marion – I like her dress, but I want everyone F.O.R.M.A.L. This is a gala!

    Also – I wish people would stick to the theme – I think we’d see more interesting fashion because people would be creative within the constraints of the theme, rather than just picking whatever they want to wear.

  17. p says:

    Jade.. too funny… Charlize is beginning to look like Cruella Da Ville lately. Still Elegant, but something off-putting in her face. I’m thinking she won’t age well.

  18. lucy2 says:

    Charlize looks amazing. I don’t completely love the dress, but as usual she manages to make it all work. Her face is ridiculously beautiful too. I do not understand her taste in men though.

    I love Marion, and blue is great on her, but this is not.

  19. don't kill me i'm french says:

    OMD Dior designer or Marion’s stylist hates her ( her hair,her make-up,her dress and and her SHOESS….)

  20. Kali says:

    Charlize Theron and Sean Penn will never not be a weird couple for me. That being said, this vaguely 80′s power goddess thing she’s rocking? Amazing.

  21. Naomi says:

    I agree Charlize face looks hard. I think the jacket is fine. The photographer might have caught one of those awkward in between moments where she was bending over to say something (perhaps let go of me) to the wee leatherette and she got caught mid word.

  22. daisyfly says:

    Aww, it’s bring Dad to the Met Gala night! Marion got lost in the pear packing factory before arriving at the gala.

  23. Franciss says:

    He just looks like a sleazy Maitre D’ all the time.

  24. Karen says:

    I’m clearly in the minority here but I ADORE Marion’s look, one of the best dressed for me, by far. The color on her is divine, I like the cut and length and I even like the shoes – quirky and eccentric in the RIGHT kind of way. Beautiful.

    But the big question for Dior – where was Jennifer Lawrence? I heard a rumour that she backed out due to filming obligations.

  25. MonicaQ says:

    I kinda really like Theron’s dress a lot. A lot a lot.

  26. Tig says:

    Charlize looks sensational. Everyone else should have stayed home. Maybe all the designers were burned out from awards season! And where is the post on Katie Holmes’ frock? That one was sooo bad!

  27. Jes1632 says:

    One of Charlize’s WORST looks. I know she’s a “goddess” and whatnot but the dress makes it look like she put on a few pounds

  28. snowflake says:

    i dont like the stripes. makes her look hippy. plus it just hangs badly, imo.

  29. Grant says:

    Charlize looks stunning. My best dressed of the evening. The hair and the earrings are everything!

    Sean Penn looks like a raisin.

  30. Chaz says:

    The theme for this year’s Met wasn’t black and white. No idea where you’re getting that.

    The theme was Charles James-esque gowns…basically full ballgowns. In that, Charlize failed. Men were supposed to wear white tie, which Sean Penn definitely did.

  31. malina says:

    I don’t care for her look but, women of hollywood, do take example of that attitude!

  32. bluhare says:

    I think they both look good. I know everyone except me hates Sean Penn, but he’s wearing his white tie well.

    She looks fabulous as usual.

  33. Maggie says:

    Charlize looks gorgeous as usual but I would dump the wrinkle puppy she’s dragging around.

  34. Helvetica says:

    Charlize looks evil in a GREAT way.

    Marion’s dress is beautiful! Very fun shoes.

  35. holly hobby says:

    Looks like Charlize got something done to her face. It looks frozen and her lips look like the joker. Isn’t she too young to get fixed? Sad! I blame Spam face aka Sean PEnn for this.

  36. Chris says:

    I know I am the only person in All the Land to feel this way, but I am really loving Charlize and Penn together. It’s like he’s trying so hard to be a better person, and I find that incredibly endearing. Look at him in that white tie! He’s so willing to be what she needs him to be. Will this last? Who knows. But we see so many Hollywood types change for the worse. I think this would be a really romantic story if Sean changes for the better.

  37. JenniferJustice says:

    I just cannot accept that Charlize would go after Penn. Why? He treated Robyn Wright like crap. I don’t like it when other women go for a guy they know was a jerk to their previous wife/wives. What happened to the girl code?

  38. Jayna says:

    Charlize can do no wrong with her height and body and long beautiful lines. Plus she’s a beauty. She’s one of the few that can always carry off couture gowns and not have them wear her. This is a more simple but still dramatic look.

  39. Penelope says:

    Not even Goddess Charlize can pull off that dress without looking wide-hipped.

  40. db says:

    They both look great, even though Sean is a douchenozzle

  41. Anne tommy says:

    Charlene is stunning. I like the two of them together, and hope they make each other happy.

  42. Beatrice says:

    Charlize has a gorgeous face, but let’s be honest, she’s getting a little too injection-happy. I hope she tames that down so she can avoid the Megan Fox/Kim Kardashian/Jeniifer Aniston dilemma.

  43. Calcifer says:

    No. Charlize is starting to look like a rich socialite with that frozen face nd the swept back hair. And I think we should be sceptical of the myth that women can ‘straighten out’ a ‘bad’ men. It encourages them to waste their time.

  44. silly you says:

    100% f**king FABULOUS. that tacky ol’ beyonce wishes…

  45. Francis says:

    Charlize is the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. Gorgeous, she could wear a sack and look stunning.

  46. Jessica says:

    I think Marion’s dress is cute, but I don’t like the shoes.

    But Charlize’s dress is just blah.
