Charlize Theron Wears All Black, Right Down to Her Pedicure, at the 2020 Oscars

Charlize Theron wore all black at the 2020 Academy Awards — even her nail polish.

The “Bombshell” actress arrived at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles wearing a black gown with a peplum detail at the waist and a thigh-baring slit. The gown was designed by the Oscar winner’s go-to label: the French fashion house Christian Dior.

For shoes, Theron chose a pair of strappy black sandals with a rounded toe and rope straps. On both her fingernails and toenails, Theron wore black nail polish, taking the monochrome look to its extreme.

The A-lister added a bit of sparkle to her outfit with diamonds. On her neck, Theron wore a massive 20-plus carat marquise-cut diamond from Tiffany & Co. The marquise cut dates back to King Louis XV of France. The style was apparently introduced when the king asked a jeweler to design something resembling his mistress’ lips. Theron also sported multiple rings and stud earrings.
