The end of fashion week finds most celebrities with a weary sense of fatigue and a growing disdain for flashbulbs. Not Charlize Theron.
Unaffected by the overabundance of parties, fleeing paparazzi (overbooked for the evening with other red-carpet affairs) and the overall strain of a packed fashion week, Theron glowed in a blue one-shouldered Givenchy dress with white zip-up Givenchy heels at the Wednesday night New York screening of her new film, "The Burning Plain." The star grasped a small black Bottega Veneta clutch as she grappled for the designer of her gold and diamond hoop earrings. "Fred..." she said, searching. "Leighton! Fred Leighton! Sorry. First name basis, me and Fred."
Theron admitted she was not particularly bothered, or interested, in the happenings going on in Bryant Park. "Shows? I went to see my friends at Rag and Bone — it was amazing. That's the only one I went to."
The actress explained that she was not in New York for the sartorial celebrations after all, but for more sporting endeavors. "I was here for the tennis," Theron winked. "This is the week that we're really promoting the film. And fashion week is way over, right? Oh it's not? Well last week I was here for the US Open. I was enthralled in the tennis."
Notably absent at the Skyy Vodka sponsored after party at The Box, perhaps the star had decided to practice her forehand instead.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
