The 37-year-old “Monster” actress was stunning when she stepped out wearing a snow-white Dior ensemble embellished with diamonds up and down her arm -- but that’s not what everyone was talking about.
The South African native shaved her golden locks a while ago for her 2014 film “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
Three month later, her hair has grown out long enough to be described as the perfect pixie cut.
The starlet added a “butch twist” to the hairstyle it help it look chic and effortlessly beautiful. Many agreed that only Theron could pull off the look because of her flawless face.
"It's the most freeing thing," Theron told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "I highly recommend it."
E!'s "Fashion Police" praised the actress for her look.
"She took the pixie cut a little bit further," Zanna Roberts Rassi, Marie Claire's senior fashion editor, said during the show. "It's almost shaved at the back. It's fantastic."
Many of the Twitterati agreed with the professionals, gushing over Theron’s fearless cut.
