Charlize Theron wore a Dior bra & miniskirt for the ‘Atomic Blonde’ premiere

'Atomic Blonde' world premiere - Arrivals

Charlize Theron was in Berlin all day on Monday to promote Atomic Blonde. At first I had a total derp moment of “why are they doing the world premiere in Berlin?” Oh, right. Because the film is set in Berlin and they filmed in and around Berlin exclusively. They are trying to give thanks to Berliners by conducting the world premiere in Berlin. So here are the photos! Sadly, James McAvoy didn’t come to Berlin. I bet he’ll come to the London premiere, and maybe the American premiere too.

But for now, please enjoy Charlize Theron’s 41-year-old ass in Dior. Charlize is a Dior girl, obviously, but this bra-top and miniskirt was probably intended for some teenage celebutante. Charlize obviously saw this and thought “Sure, I can pull that off.” And she does. On another woman, I would think this is completely tacky. And it is, sort of, just in general. So why does it feel like Charlize is really working the sh-t out of it?

I’m also including photos of Charlize’s costar Sofia Boutella, who wore a black Chanel Fall 2017 dress with some kind of horrid satin cowl neck. Yikes. They look like they’re going to two very different events. Sofia plays Charlize’s lover in Atomic Blonde, and they seem very friendly in these photos. It’s sweet.

    This is ridiculous and I hate it, but girlfriend has LEGZ.

    • Jerusha says:

      I don’t like the outfit, but could be she’s showing off her weight loss after gaining for that other film and being depressed about it. “See, I’m BACK!”

    • V4Real says:

      She has long legs but not great legs. That outfit makes her look like a trashy model. I did a bit of comparison and I think Kendal legs actually look better than Charlize.

      • Greata says:

        Noooooooo! At some point maturity begins to register on a woman’s face no matter how bangin the body. Charlene has arrived at that point. She is still beautiful, but the maturity /life experience is there. If anything this outfit makes her look old.

      • crazydaisy says:

        V4Real—so cold! My 2 cents: wearing a bra for a shirt, anywhere except MAYBE on a yacht or at a beach party, looks D. U. M. B. (This is an actual bra. Not even a bikini top!!!)

      • Mannori says:

        I agree: long legs doest necessarily mean great legs. I think Charlize is showing off her weight loss because she went through some bit of depression and she probably needs to bust her confidence now, but she’s sucking in her gut! that poor woman is barely breathing!

        As for Sofia, her dress is as horrible as Charlize outfit, none of them got the memo of how to dress playfully yet stylish for a movie set in the 80′s. However Charlize outfit would have look better on Sofia: she’s a trained professional dancer and if there’s someone who could pull off the bra+miniskirt that’s Sofia.

      • Eva says:

        Are you people serious? In what world are those not absolutely amazing legs??? I think you need new glasses. Or maybe post a pic of your own legs for comparison?

        Hate the dress, love the lady. (And the legs I would kill for.)

      • perplexed says:

        Why would her legs be considered not great? Just curious.

        I figure most people under a certain age have good legs (even short people), as long as there isn’t extreme cellulite on them.

      • isabelle says:

        She has great legs. What the heck do you ladies look like on here? Perfect 10 models?

      • Mannori says:

        nobody is saying that she doesn’t have great legs: I’ve said it, she is tall and slim, and goes to the gym on a regular basis and take care her body is part of her job, or at least the kind of actress she has chosen to be: the sex symbol actress. She is obviously proud of it and is fine. But do one thing for you to understand what I mean: google the pics of her at the beach when she was first seen with Sean Penn. Then come back to me and tell me she has a great body and great legs.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Yes, she is lovely and is very fit, but this is bad. The skirt looks like something from The Jetsons, and overly accentuates her shoulders which appear much broader than her hips. The top is reminiscent of men’s tighty whities. It is just weird altogether.

      • Becks says:

        I agree, this terrible outfit makes her broad shoulders look even wider. It’s very unflattering.
        Her legs are awesome though.

      • Sarah says:

        She looks like she forgot her shirt. If the bra top were sparkly or showier, it might not look like a sports bra.
        The woman is gorgeous. Seems like a pretty vile person, especially dating Penn and blah blah blahing about him for those months, but gorgeous.

    • Felicia says:

      I suspect it’s maybe mostly “theme dressing” in regards to being a kick-ass character in this film?

      And seriously, in what world are her legs not fantastic?

  2. Lora says:

    Nope, its horrible!

    • Pandy says:

      It’s terrible. Even she can’t pull it off. She looks silly.

    • G says:

      It’s really very bad. She’s clearly in fantastic shape, but this does nothing to flatter her figure, just makes her shoulders and waist look broader.
      Not into Sofia Boutella’s cowl either, but she is so, so beautiful.

  3. Alix says:

    Charlize is buff as hell, but the outfit’s ridiculous.

  4. rachel says:

    I hate this look. The unfortunate teenage look that Dior has produced recently are horrendous. This is obviously the new designer’s fault, probably another reason why Marion Cotillard ans Dior are no longer associated. They are really heading for those juvenile looks, it might work on Jennifer Lawrence but it’s not nearly elegant or striking enough for someone like Charlize.

    • Mrs. WelenMelon says:

      You said it perfectly. This outfit is unworthy of Charlize Theron.

    • minx says:

      She’s too (I’m sorry) old for this look. As someone said, Ariana Grande could wear this. Charlize has a great figure, etc. but it’s too juvenile.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    She herself looks amazing but the outfit is a nope for me.

    • milla says:

      Agreed. Dior is just getting worse. Well all fashion houses are so maybe trashy is new chic? Yuck…

      • Nem says:

        I really wonder if sending horrendous clothes to the oldest and most prestigious dior ambassador is a passive aggressive way to push her to the door. The new dior stylist fired Marion Cotillard to LVMH Ceo anger. She’s not powerful enough to succeed a second time with Charlize Theron.
        She must be seething not to be able to put her young muses in the house.

      • zeynep says:

        @nem Interesting theory. Their lastest collection has been awful and skewed very instagram chic. Perhaps Charlize should cut her losses and switch to another house. Perhaps YSL?

      • Nem says:

        @Zeynep thank you.
        My messy self would send her to valentino for the fun.
        But maybe it would be difficult as she is synonymous with dior as was Cotillard.
        YSL has taken Charlotte Gainsbourg from balenciaga and nicolas ghesquiere (who is making awful things at Vuitton and ridiculing the French first Lady), who is about the same age but it isn’t the same.
        Gainsbourg is third generation celebrity, and second generation french high fashion darling, so it makes sense fashion houses run after her quasi aristocratic haute couture pedigree.
        Maybe Chanel as she is the next best thing after Nicole Kidman in their league, even if big karl has already his hands full with Kristen Stewart(another one stolen from ghesquiere and balenciaga) and Julianne Moore, and 1000000+ brand ambassadors.

  6. lolo86lf says:

    OMG Sofia looks like Leah Michelle. Yes, Charlize has a perfect shape but the outfit is too young for her. Not age appropriate.

  7. Melodie says:

    Little too Joe Boxer for me. They could have kept the straps and made it a white mini-dress.

  8. Beth says:

    She’s gorgeous, but this doesn’t look good. No matter what the brand of the bra, I wouldn’t go into public without something covering it

  9. Mia4s says:

    Well I hate the outfit but admire the media savvy. Those pictures will be everywhere and she’s got a movie to open. Well played.

    • Mannori says:

      Bingo: I think you got it. If I remember correctly Charlize is a producer as well so wherever gives this movie a headline is good for business.

  10. nemera34 says:

    Why is Sofia dressed like someone so much older. Not good. And Charlize has great legs..but that outfit is terrible.

    • Nem says:

      Poor Sofia must have been so grateful to chanel to lend her dress, and didn’t have choice as her status isn’t high enough to rebuff it

  11. Saskia says:

    Normally don’t like this type of look but she pulls it off. Go Charlie!

  12. Mike says:

    I wonder if somebody told Sofia to keep her rocking body covered up. Do not want to upstage the star after all

  13. David says:

    Legs for days.

  14. Toniko says:

    This is “I finally lost all that weight i gained for the role look”. She looks great though.

  15. OriginallyBlue says:

    That’s a no for me on the outfit, but I am going to see the movie.
    They started filming for X-Men in Montreal, so I can see James coming to a New York premiere.

    • ichsi says:

      He’s more likely to attend the LA premiere. It’s right after Comic Con and the X-men team definitely will go. They also didn’t shoot this around Berlin only, lots of it was done in Budapest. As for the outfit, I’m in a minority here, I know, but I really enjoy it.

  16. minx says:

    Ugh. No.

  17. Brit says:

    Ever since Sofia lightened her hair, she’s looked different.

  18. Barrett says:

    Um somehow she made Calvin Klein ish underwear look sophisticated.

  19. magnoliarose says:

    Charlize looks amazing. The outfit is meh but she overcomes it.

  20. seesittellsit says:

    Not bowled over by either outfit, but of the two, I’ll take Boutella’s any day. Theron’s outfit screams “Trying too hard!” but why on earth should she have to with that face and body?! It looks like a 1950s “playsuit” for a teenage girl. I get haute elegance is not the right note for this particular film, but come on. I can’t remember seeing Boutella before – she’s really beautiful – and as someone who’s been stuck with bangs since the age of two due to a narrow forehead, I’m always thrilled to see someone like that sporting them.

    • LAK says:

      First saw her in KINGSMAN SECRET SERVICE. A movie that was so much more than the advance notices. Too bad she won’t be in the sequel which is out this september.

      • elephant says:

        I loved Kingsman and cannot wait for the sequel. Boutella was amazing in the first movie, a scene stealer. Never saw her before in anything, or after that, but I really liked her in that film.

      • LAK says:

        I love Matthew Vaughn. Will watch anything he directs. I can’t wait for the sequel.

      • nicegirl says:

        LOVED her in the Kingsman!

      • seesittellsit says:

        Missed KINGSMAN so that explains why I’m unfamiliar with Boutella, although I saw the trailer 100 times. I love Mark Strong and Colin Firth so can’t think how this one got away from me – they were both so tragic and so amazing in TINKER TAILOR. I’ll have to get to KINGSMAN soon.

  21. Melissa says:

    It’s a sports bra, not unlike many I have purchased from Target. And a high waisted mini I made about a dozen of in my youth, when I sewed my own clothes. But by God, it’s Dior. Whatevs.

  22. D says:

    Is Charlize Theron really tall or is Sofia Boutella short?

    • LAK says:

      Theron is really tall.

      • seesittellsit says:

        Somehow Theron and Depp, who is way shorter than she is, made it work in “The Astronaut’s Wife”, one of my fave rainy Sat. night guilty secrets films. And I’d have killed for her haircut, or rather the face to wear it in that, too. But – the narrow forehead and the bloody bangs. . .

  23. SM says:

    Is the name Dior thown on the underwear makes it ok to wear it as a movie premiere dress? This is horrible, no matter the fact that somehow Charlize makes it look somewhat more classy than just underwear, no one should even be suggested to try pulling it off as a legitimate outfit. This is lazy on part of Dior: yeah, let’s not spend any time designing a dress, let’s just put her in underwear and call it a day.

  24. slowsnow says:

    Sorry. It looks like she forgot her top.
    It made me think, “oh I also wear sports bras under sophisticated clothes. Huh? Nevermind”.

    I agree with the poster above that KStew would have totally pulled this off. Zoe Ktavitz too – I mean badasses stylewise. They, like Rihanna, have a way to make undressed seemed dressed. Charlize looks naked.

  25. Hikaru says:

    The outfit makes her upper body so boxy it’s almost like looking at Caitlyn Jenner.

    • emilybyrd says:

      I have a build that’s similar to Charlize’s on top–but not the long legs, unfortunately! The very wide shoulders and the weight gain that goes so quickly to the top of the arms and the bust. Since I’m on the petite side, it’s a challenge to not look like my body is completely unbalanced (like the top is 3 sizes bigger than the bottom)! I’ve been lucky to pick up some tips from trainers at a local gym in the past. A lot of it is about doing the right sorts of exercises for your frame. For instance, I’ve been told I have to watch the type of weight-lifting I do so as not to bulk up too much on top.

      Charlize also looks to me like she’s been doing too many abs exercises or something. She’s super fit and very slim, but her body is straight up and down–no waist.

  26. Sage says:

    Charlize looks amazing. Healthy figure with legs for days.

  27. Mannori says:

    I know I’m going to sound like a sour hater but damn it Charlize, what is this? She looks so uncomfortable like she’s holding her breath, sucking in her gut like a champion…why this? she is already a superstar, she doesn’t need the attention by wearing such a tacky, pretentious outfit? she’s a beautiful woman, did she felt the need to show how she’s doing well at loosing the weight she gained lately? because if that’s her intention maybe this outfit, and more specifically, standing next to a professional dancer with a real athletic body like Sofia Boutella isn’t doing any favors to her…she looks like a shapeless fridge next to Sofia.

  28. Jegede says:

    Issa no from me.

  29. Yeahright says:

    I saw Atonic Blonde at a film festival. The story is just meh but it’s worth it for the fight scenes and music!
    The styling is off though. It’s set in the 80′s but Charlize is too modern looking!

  30. Frigga says:

    She looks so damn good, I can’t really completely hate her outfit. But it would be much more tolerable if she wore a white blazer with it!

  31. blogdis says:

    That a nope

  32. Tallia says:

    Girl. You look fabulous but this is such a fashion NO in my book.

  33. L says:

    She has a nice figure but I’m not feeling the outfit.

  34. Ophelia says:

    Nothing against these designers tryna be edgy and stuff. Bras and supershort shorts/skirts. Blah! Why not try to be edgy by designing dresses or pants, blazers and shirts with usable deep pockets for once. And make it so across the board.

    • LAK says:

      This isn’t edgy. This is 80s cosplay.

      • Ophelia says:

        Since we’re going retro and all.
        Surely there’s a redeeming quality of the 80s? I’m so confused now anyway.

      • LAK says:

        I’m a child of the 80s. I shudder at my photos from then.

        Just about the only acceptable 80s replay is leggings and only in dark colours.

        All she needs are ankle socks and or legwarmers, fingerless gloves, a big slouchy belt, lots of beaded necklaces and a crucifix, a big slouchy t- shirt worn with one exposed bra strap, slouchy rag in her hair which should be teased into sky high texas hair, tips frosted, big giant hoops in her ears and she would be good to go.

  35. Poop says:

    She looks great, but I think this outfit would POP more with a cinched waist

  36. Lynnie says:

    Theron’s outfit is the exact type of outfit insta “models” post and thank FashionNova for giving I can’t 💀💀💀

  37. stinky says:

    Dior does Hot Topic.
    All I think of is Ariana Grande when I see this crap.

  38. bella says:

    Chalize is so beautiful, but the only people that should wear that outfit is-no one! I would like Sofia if the cowl was black. It looks unfinished with the white cowl. She is so petite that I get where they are going with the this look, as it is stream-lined.

  39. manta says:

    “So why does it feel like Charlize is really working the sh-t out of it?”

    No, it doesn’t feel like that at all.
    And I guess the next time Jennifer Lawrence shows up in an atrocious Dior outfit we won’t read the usual “They’re giving all their best stuff to Theron” comment.

  40. perplexed says:

    The outfit itself looks kind of dumb, but she’s never been opposed to being daring, so I guess it kind of works for her. Like, I’m not shocked she’d try and wear it.

    If someone like Reese Witherspoon wore it, I’d be shocked, because I just don’t think she would. Charlize doesn’t mind wearing stuff like that, so I guess I’m used to it aligning with her personality, like whatever weird stuff J-Lo wears when she wears outrageous outfits.

  41. Elisa the I. says:

    I’m loving it! She looks amazing and it’s the right outfit for this film. Can’t wait to see it!

  42. ValM99 says:

    Her waist is too boxy to wear that. It’s so unflattering, and makes her look uncomfortable. Maria really needs to learn how to style the Dior girls. That’s why Rihanna is wearing the brand less

  43. Reka says:

    It was filmed in Budapest

  44. themummy says:

    It looks like she didn’t finish getting dressed.

  45. Erica_V says:

    Digging out my old Boxer Joe attire…… hey Champion has come back so why not?

    For real tho if it didn’t say Dior in the writing I never would’ve known by the styling. Such an elegant historic house putting out this kind of stuff is just sad IMO.

    I agree with the commentor above – throwing on a blazer would’ve made this perfection. It just looks too young for her. Not that she’s old at all by any means just that this is an outfit for a teenager/20 something. Not Ms. Theron.

  46. A says:

    Charlize looks amazing. She has the beauty and confidence to rock this look 😍 Sofia didn’t even try 😑

  47. Zeddy says:

    Considering her character in the movie, this is effing great!!

  48. Joannie says:

    She looks amazing.

  49. Lulu says:

    I immediately thought of Posh Spice at the Brit Awards in 1997. It’s funny that Victoria Beckham has spent twenty years trying to get away from the image she had then.

  50. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I mean…she can get away with most things, but this is teetering on Cher’s midlife crisis ass chaps phase (I am Charlize’s age so part of me applauds her for just saying “f- it” though!). I do find myself getting a little bit mad hatter with fashion the older I get…like nobody cares/is watching, I am totally wearing paisley and polka dots, whatever!

  51. PoliteTia says:

    Try hard at best. She has the long legs, but the high waist shirt under cuts the entire out fit. I really like the Bra-Top. I want those shoes and bracelet, nice! Anyone going to see the movie?
    Clap back is anyone has heard about a ‘Salt 2′ and ‘Hannah 2′ movie in the works
