Just gird yourselves going forward, because a LOT of people wore darkly grim ensembles to the MTV shindig on Saturday night. Like Charlize here:

Conceptually, I can see this: She’s accepting an award for Best Female Performance for Max Max: Fury Road – an award we all knew she’d won because otherwise Charlize Theron would not bother to go to this — while also promoting The Huntsman: Winter’s War. And this outfit does feel like the exact right bridge between those two projects, doesn’t it? Having said that, it’s ALSO essentially the world’s most expensive bathing-suit cover-up. And not even one that’s so impeccably designed, either. It’s kind of… Forever 21,000, with the number in this case referring to the price.
