Even with her super short, boyish haircut, onetime Oscar winner Charlize Theron knocked 'em dead at the 2013 Oscars, wearing a white, peplum Dior Couture gown.

The dress was structured and straight, but Theron has a brick you-know-what-house figure and could pull it off. The "V" in the bodice showed off the teeniest flash of cleavage, but the strapless top highlighted her shapely shoulders and her gamine neck. Statuesque doesn't even begin to describe the actress -- she wore the dress and not the other way around; it pretty much lucked out having her choose it.

This Dior gown had so many subtle details -- such as the sprinkle of sparkle on the peplum portion and the train -- that you needed to inspect it two or three times to truly appreciate all it had to offer.

If only we all could be as genetically blessed as this lady.
