Charlize Theron may be too beautiful for the best movie roles, but is not too beautiful for bugs. At the L.A. premiere of her new film The Huntsman, she wore a dress that's like the physical manifestation of what Dior thinks camping might involve — i.e. elegant bugs! From butterflies to ants to spiders, bugs might be the new ferns, which were the new fruits. Fashion loves a playful motif.
Charlize's version was a pencil-skirted black cocktail dress with bejeweled critters decorating her chest, shoulders, and back. Take a peek at it all up close, if this kind of thing doesn't freak you out:
Oh god, look. Bugs.
Gee whiz, how are we going to catch all of these little guys. What a mess.
Wait where are they going.
Oh god oh god oh god.
