Charlize Theron is like Angelina Jolie. No matter what she wears, she will always look gorgeous, since she is so genetically blessed. The actress, a longtime Dior spokesmodel, wore a black dress by the brand to the 2014 Oscars.

With her short, pixie 'do, Theron's swan-like neck and drop necklace became a focal point. But check out the top half of her dress. There are clear straps holding up the bodice, but it's sort of shaped like wine bottles. Right? It was a unique look, unlike anything else we saw in the sea of black and neutrals on this year's red carpet.

Charlize's curves were well-served by this dress. The top was unique, and the bottom was almost mermaid-shaped and with a train. As we've said before, black is often a risky red carpet choice because of how it photographs, but Theron had no problems making black work for her.
