Charlize Theron really is a golden girl. The Oscar winner looked like she stepped straight out of the pages of a magazine on Tuesday night while accepting her Spotlight Award at the 2020 Costume Designers Guild Awards. Specifically, she looked like she was shooting one of her Dior J’Adore ads, which typically feature the South African star in a glittering gold dress, though her shimmering creation was actually created by Louis Vuitton.

Theron was certainly the brightest star onstage, but The Beverly Hilton ballroom was jam-packed with fabulous frocks, as could be expected form the crowd that was being honored—the women and men responsible for outfitting Hollywood’s top films and TV shows.
