On a bed of glittering gold satin lies Charlize Theron, a bottle of Dior’s J’adore perfume in her hand. That’s the sensual scene that welcomed Charlize Theron into the Dior universe in 2004 as the spokeswoman for the J’adore Dior fragrance line. Since then she’s stripped bare, climbed up through silken ropes, and posed with Marilyn Monroe—thanks to some CGI—in the brand’s campaigns, though those aren’t the only Dior moments that propelled Theron into the fashion spotlight. On the red carpet she frequently sports Dior ensembles, to the delight of both Hollywood and fashion fans.
In honor of her 40th birthday today, see 12 of her best Dior looks in the slideshow above.
