The Event: A24 Films' premiere of Dark Places, the film adaptation of Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name, at the Harmony Gold theater in Los Angeles Tuesday evening.

Why We Dig: Despite the film's title, Theron took the Dark Places premiere (which was sponsored by Apothic wines and Svedka vodka) as an opportunity to shine in a bright and summery Dior number from Raf Simons' 2015 resort collection. Glowing in a braided updo, radiant makeup and nude heels, the actress was a breath of fresh air next to Christina Hendricks and Sophia Loren, both of whom hit the carpet in heavy head-to-toe black ensembles. A satin Dior clutch and bright yet simple jewels completed Theron's easy, lighthearted look.
