Charlize Theron Stuns In Metallic Dress, Proves Sexy Isn't About Showing Skin — PHOTO

One Hollywood actress is proving that you can still look sexy without showing skin. Charlize Theron wore a metallic dress to a press event in Hong Kong on Wednesday, and the skintight look was super sultry despite being mostly covered up. I'm not really surprised, TBH. Theron can make even a garbage bag look sexy.

The 40-year-old turned heads when she stepped out in a knee-length gold metallic dress complete with long sleeves and a crew neckline. The dress was actually made entirely of tightly packed shiny sequins which looked like a gorgeous second skin on the actress. She literally looked as though she had been dipped in silvery gold metallic paint and then went out in public. The super slinky statement piece flaunted all her assets and accentuated her statuesque physique. It practically oozed vampiness.

Theron completed the ensemble with dainty black lace sandals and a matching mirrored box clutch. Her golden blonde locks were styled in a tousled side-parted pixie, and she rocked a demure smoky eye and a bold wine-colored pout. She looked like a true movie star.

I'm not knocking the ubiquitous naked dress or anything, but I love how Theron is showing another take on typical sexy style.

Check out the stunning look.


Head-to-toe metallic is totally trending in celebrity land. Let's take a look at other stylish celebs who have rocked the metallic look.
