Charlize Theron is making a case for mod fashion.
The 44-year-old actress attended a New York City photo call for her new film, “Bombshell,” last night clad in a look that could have come straight out of a ’60s fashion advert.
Theron wore a black minidress with a geometric white pattern running across the midriff.
For footwear, the Academy Award winner selected black mid-calf boots with a pointy toe, a suedelike upper and zip detailing on the side.
Theron’s hairdo — a cropped blond pixie cut — felt like an additional nod to mod culture.
Developed by British youth in the ’60s, mod culture for women features short hemlines and color blocking. A geometric-printed shift dress like Theron’s fits in perfectly.
As for the boots…those were a bit more modern. A ’60s style boot like would have come in white, with a rounded toe and short block heel. So, Theron’s pointy-toed black boots offered the look a bit of 2010s flair.
In “Bombshell,” Theron portrays news journalist Megyn Kelly. The film follows several women at Fox News who brought sexual harassment claims against the channel’s CEO, Roger Ailes, (John Lithgow), which ultimately led to the executive’s downfall. The movie releases in U.S. theaters on Dec. 20.
