Award-winning actress Charlize Theron gathered together Hollywood’s elite and other dignitaries as she hosted this year’s Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project in New York City on Tuesday.
The 44-year-old actress, who’s making good use of her platform for philanthropic purposes, founded the CTAOP in 2007 with the mission to keep African youth safe from HIV/AIDS.
“The spirit of Ubuntu which means, “I am because we are,” and South Africa have really shaped who I am today. I have always wanted to share the gift that was given to me back to them,” said the South African-born actress at the fundraising event. “Our goal is to make sure that every adolescent stays safe and HIV free,” she added.

For the event, Charlize opted for a custom Christian Dior Fall 2019 Haute Couture strapless mini dress. The shimmering flirty frock features baroque print and fringing on the sides and hem, showing a glimpse of her legs.
According to InStyle Magazine, it took 1,200 hours to make Charlize’s Dior dress.

On Monday night, Charlize was honored with the Rebel Award at the 2019 Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York City.
She took to the stage in a glamorous Givenchy Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2019 white gown as she accepted the award.
“We need to help the hard-hearted to empathize with others. Like sexual assault survivors, people living with AIDS, our trans community, children who are different or who have special needs,” she said during her emotional speech.
“The women in this room tonight are putting themselves on the front line of the empathy battle, be it through storytelling, creating opportunities for those that need it most, or just unabashedly being yourself and telling other women we don’t have to apologize for who and what we are,” she added.
