Charlize Theron's new movie Young Adult opens this weekend, and we can't wait to see it. The movie poster alone of Miss Theron wearing hot pink sweatpants, a Kermit-green hoodie, and Hello Kitty T-shirt accessorized with a quilted pink bag and ubiquitous Pomeranian is hilarious and says so much about what this movie has in store for us. While the tagline "Everyone gets old, not everyone grows up," seems fitting for the movie, we happen to think the lovely Oscar winner is drinking from the fountain of youth. We don't need to speculate about the age of this bishness because, really, who cares in the end, and also, we want to look just like this whenever we get to whatever age this is. At the premiere of the movie, Charlize invoked her inner goddess and wore a sassy Stella McCartney number, perfect barely there makeup, simple hair, and a confident grin. She's had a busy week promoting the movie and had a few choice words to say about women in her age group who actually wear Hello Kitty T-shirts, namely that she doesn't get it...at ALL.
While doing press for the film, she spoke on New York Times' TimesTalk panel and discussed how she prepared for her Young Adult role. When fleshing out her character, she thought it would be helpful if the costume designer dressed her in Hello Kitty T-shirts. "I see so many women in their 30s walking around in Hello Kitty s*** and nobody is concerned," she said. "It's the one iconic teenage symbol that seems OK for women in their 30s. The world seems to not have an issue with it." Um, why is that statement so hilarious? Because it's totally true. Also, we will never look at Hello Kitty T-shirts the same way ever again. (Does this count for concert tees too? And what about animals on sweaters?)
Charlize looked decidedly adult yet awash in a youthful glow at the premiere of the film. We love this one-shoulder Stella McCartney dress with baroque finials, see-through black overlay, two-tone drama, and uneven hemline. It's edgy yet classy and looks fantastic with those Manolo Blahniks. She's got a confident aura about her, and kind of looks like she'd cut you if you ever really walked up to her wearing a Hello Kitty tee and didn't have your ID present. Wonder if this sassiness has anything to do with the utter badassery that is her upcoming turn as the wicked queen in Snow White and the Huntsman? Here's hoping.
