Charlize Theron's Red Carpet Shorts Are So Much Cooler Than a Gown

Although some celebrities have been making the case for the award season pant—thank you, Emma Stone—everyone usually associates red carpets with dresses. But Charlize Theron, for one, is ready to flip the script. You might remember when she wore a cool bra-and-skirt combo to a premiere last year, and now we're very into her leather shorts look.

Attending an event at the San Francisco Film Festival, Theron wore a printed blouse tucked into high-waisted leather shorts, elevating the look with strappy heels. Thanks to Theron, we suddenly find ourselves in desperate need of LBS (little black shorts) for our next event.
