Leading lady, Charlize Theron knows looking fabulous at a big time movie premiere is a Hollywood must! She recently steamed up the red carpet for this summer's blockbuster hit, Hancock.

Known for her elegant meets edgy style, Charlize did not disappoint! The actress looked gorgeous wearing a black cocktail dress at both the Berlin and UK premieres. Her dresses may have been basic black, but the silhouettes were anything but.

Fellow style mavens, take a cue from Charlize and invest in a black cocktail dress. It will never go out of style, alway looks amazing and will last forever. To spice up basic black, choose a style with an unusual neckline, fabulous straps, high slit or bubble skirt. One of my favorite shopping spots for splurging without going broke is bluefly.com. I found these two Charlize copies from Vera Wang. Both styles are chic, classic and s-e-x-y!
