This is a classic example of how Charlize Theron, because she is Charlize Theron, is pulling off something that most mortals probably could not.

She is long and lean and dramatic, and starring in strange and disturbing YSL commercials where she’s elbowing dead screen sirens out of her way so she can shimmy down a catwalk while they huff perfume. Those people — dramatic and captivating model types with good pedicures — just somehow get away with stuff like tight ruffled skirts. I think that was etched on a tablet somewhere in Olden Times.
