Charlize Theron Beats Out Some Stiff Competition in This Week's Best Dressed Race

05/31/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

If you were a) a star and b) promoting a movie this week, then chances are you had a shot at nabbing this week’s Best Dressed title. From Emily Blunt’s whirlwind promotional tour to Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried’s A Million Ways to Die in the West premiere looks, there were a lot of great outfits — but only one can take home the prize.

That honor went to Charlize, who appeared at the London premiere of her film wearing a black mini with bell sleeves and ankle-strap heels. She skipped the jewelry and kept her hair in a simple updo, which let her bold red lips (and those toned legs!) take center stage.

Hot on her heels was costar Amanda, who took the opposite approaching to styling her LBD by adding some fun details, like lots of beading and an exposed horizontal zipper. She also kept her makeup neutral and showed off her long locks in a side-swept do.

And while both women looked great, we also have to gush over Emily, who attended three movie premieres (for Edge of Tomorrow) on two different continents in a span of only 24 hours — and looked flawless each and every time. Our favorite dress (and trust us, it was tough to choose) was her red peaked-neckline Prada gown, which showed off the new mom’s gorgeous figure. What really pushed this look over the top, however, was the choice of a bright pink lip, which clashed in the most perfect of ways. (Her hair was pretty great, too — click here for the details on how to recreate the updo at home!) And keep in mind this was in N.Y.C., the final stop on her whirlwind tour, and by that point in time we would have been makeup-free and in pajamas, refusing to socialize with others.

Tell us: Which leading lady’s look did you love the most? And do you think Emily Blunt might be superhuman for looking that great after such a long day?

Jolies leather dress did it for me…

Somehow as I looked as far as Theron’s upper wears my mind jumped to Armor of Altair, and after then Voldemort’s robes, then Bellatrix’s combat robes.

What’s that thing on her leg? She’s always stunning, but is this another photoshop gone bad? Otherwise, that is some varicose vein?

@gatorgirl99: It actually looks like an extensive scar from an accident. What the heck happened?

Daiana on

@gatorgirl99: It’s not a vein and it’s not a scar. It’s the shadow of her other leg.
