Who Looks Best in a Black Dress and Blazer: Charlize Theron or Jennifer Hudson?

We recently spotted two strong, powerful Hollywood women sporting similar looks on separate occasions. Both Charlize Theron and Jennifer Hudson both wore black dress and blazer-themed ensembles. The little black dress is a go-to for many celebs, and blazers are a great way to add a little class to a classic. So, we can see why both ladies rocked this outfit.

Who do you think wore the look better?

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron normally opts for either ankle-grazing gowns or super short hemlines. However, the actress-turned-producer went for a knee-length black slip at the premiere of her latest project “Girlboss.” Charlize paired the Nili Lotan dress with a Givenchy blazer, and finished the look off with a pair of Gianvito Rossi ankle strap heels. While the silky number had a sophisticated but sexy vibe, we think the black-on-black ensemble was a little too plain. The knee-length hem also covered up her beautiful legs, which would have elevated this look even more.

Jennifer Hudson

While Charlize’s outfit was safe and plain, Jennifer Hudson went for full-on fierce. The award-winning singer showed off her enviable figure in a velvet Brandon Maxwell number, which had a short hemline and a cinched waist detail that highlighted her curvy figure. While Jennifer’s outfit was also black-on-black, the addition of a cape detail jazzed it up a bit.
