Charlize Theron's 2016 Oscars Dress Is Classically Beautiful — PHOTOS

This actor is a seasoned Hollywood veteran, but that doesn't mean it's not still exciting to see what she wears on the red carpet. Charlize Theron looks amazing at the 2016 Oscars, which she is attending in support of Mad Max: Fury Road. Theron typically rocks classically gorgeous looks at formal events, so I wasn't expecting any real surprises from her tonight, however I'm really loving her red dress paired with an elegant updo and some simple makeup. It's quite a departure from her incredibly intense (and awesome) Mad Max ensemble, that's for sure. Let it never be said that Theron isn't versatile!

She has worn quite a few legendary outfits over the course of her approximate two decades as a Hollywood starlet, and this one is certainly no exception. Theron played it a bit safe in a red gown with a plunging neckline and fitted silhouette that flared out into a dramatic mermaid hem, but hey — if it ain't broke, why fix it, right? This number is so regal, and I love that she accessorized with a long diamond necklace to break up the red. It's classic red carpet glam at its absolute finest, and I really can't complain. Sure, it's fun when celebs get a bit wild for big events, but the Oscars is one particular night where sometimes just plain pretty is best.
