Once a model, always a model! Charlize Theron may have moved on to the acting world, but she hasn’t left her cover girl experience far behind! The stunning Oscar winner looked like she stepped off the runway on Friday (March 4) when she attended the Santa Barbara Film Festival in the tony seaside town of southern California. As she graced the stage to give a speech, the Mad Max: Fury Road star stole the spotlight in a fabulous fringe ensemble!

The actress dared to impress in a sparkling, rainbow color mini dress. With a black turtleneck top underneath, Charlize rocked the unique number with aplomb. She showed off her gorgeous gams as the dress cut high on her thighs. With a hip hairdo slicked back and styled new wave, she proved she still has the model edge.

When she’s not attending to her Hollywood duties, Charlize is focused on her family. Recently, she paid tribute to her mother Gerda on her birthday with an Instagram photo album and surprised fans by including a rare snap of her two daughters August, 7, and Jackson, 10.  In her caption, the star gushed about mom. “I wanted to share her with all of you because anyone who knows her, knows how utterly awesome [it] is to stand in her sunlight,” Charlize wrote. “She TRULY is life.”

Always a doting mother herself, Charlize opened up about the decision to adopt her two children — which Gerda had a hand in — during an interview with Chelsea Handler for Elle. “When I first filed [for adoption], my mom showed me a letter I’d written when I was little; I asked if we could go to the orphanage. In South Africa, orphanages were everywhere, and I wanted a brother or sister. I was always aware that there are so many children in this world who don’t have families.”

“Adoption is a very personal thing, she continued. “I know people whom I love dearly who don’t feel that they could raise another child as their own. I respect that. But for me—and I can’t be the only person out there—I never saw a difference in raising an adopted child versus my own biological child. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on something.”
