Charlize Theron's red-hot look - steal her style for less

Charlize Theron knows how to make a fashion statement - just look at her striking red outfit at the recent ELLE Women In Hollywood event.

In a nod to the layering trend that took off in the early 2000s, Charlize wore a stretchy red turtleneck Alaia dress with red pants underneath.

She completed the look with strappy white sandals and an oversized black jacket.
