Michelle Rodriguez brought a punky take to red carpet formalwear at the 2023 Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’s (CTAOP) annual Block Party event.
While hitting the red carpet at the Universal Studios Backlot in Universal City, Calif. on Saturday, Rodriguez posed in a shimmering outfit. The “Dungeons & Dragons” star’s ensemble featured a shimmering gold maxi dress with a silky texture an d thin halter neckline. For added casual flair, Rodriguez nonchalantly layered the formal piece with a white leather biker jacket covered in a grungy black graffiti print, as well as a thin gold bar ring.
During the occasion, Rodriguez even shared a reunion with her “Fast” co-stars, including Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang and Vin Diesel.
When it came to footwear, Rodriguez’s shoes couldn’t be seen beneath her dress’ long hem. However, it was later revealed during a panel with Brewster and Kang that the actress paired her formal dress with a pair of white leather high-top sneakers. The lace-up pair featured flat rubber soles for a monochrome finish, though their uppers boasted metallic silver paneling for a boldly retro edge.
The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) Block Party raises awareness for actress Charlize Theron’s namesake organization, which combats HIV/AIDS in youth in Africa. This year’s occasion featured an auction that included an Andrew Zimmern dinner and Paris vacation package. Guests included Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Paris Jackson and Vin Diesel, with sponsors including Dior, Universal, Bloomberg and Whispering Angel.
