There aren’t many things that make us stop whatever we’re doing and gape in awe, but seriously, it’s impossible not to obsess over the photos from last night’s London premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman. I mean, just look at Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron on the red (uh, grass?) carpet and you’ll see what we mean. The co-stars of the film, which hits theaters June 1, looked jaw-dropping gorgeous in their dramatic sheer black gowns.

Kristen Stewart took a break from her trademark sneakers and cutoffs uniform and pulled out all the stops for this major event, wearing an intricate Marchesa floor-length dress. Straight from the Fall 2012 runway, the long-sleeved gown is covered in black lace, making it the perfect hybrid of goth, romantic, and seriously unexpected glamour. We’re not used to seeing K.Stew baring all, but thanks to the tastefully see-through skirt and embellishment on the torso, she 100% pulls it off. While the dress is amazing enough as is, she topped off the look with a wispy bun accented by- wait for it-gold chains. One word: knockout. But staying true to form, she did tell us at the premiere that she was looking forward to slipping out of the dress and putting on something a little more comfy. Even in ulta-glam mode, she’s still the K.Stew we know and love.

Charlize Theron opted for another fresh-from-the-catwalk creation, this time around from Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 collection. It’s a perfect choice for the face of the French fashion house, who paired the sleeveless dress with a Dior clutch and a sultry smoky eye. Although she decided to swap out the original nude hotpants on the runway for black ones, the actress and ex-model did keep the translucent top, looking every bit as royal here as she does in the flick.

Instead of asking the mirror which star looked the fairest, we’re asking you: who pulls off the sheer all-black gown better, Kristen or Charlize? Let us know!
