Aug 7 2014 - 8:30am

Charlize Theron [1] is many things — a superb actress, a passionate humanitarian, and a mom, for starters. To top it all off, the South African-born bombshell has proven time and time again that she is one serious fashion force. Well, today we're toasting to her flawless style (both on and off the red carpet). From edgy jumpsuits to alluring gowns, she consistently knows how to walk the line between utterly sexy and ultrasophisticated silhouettes.

Calling upon the likes of Dior, Stella McCartney [2], Reed Krakoff [3], and Rag & Bone, Charlize effortlessly transitions from dressed up to dressed down; just look to her tailored blazers, cool jeans, and It-girl bags for further off-duty styling inspiration. Since the leggy stunner is celebrating her 39th birthday today, we're celebrating accordingly — get the full glamazon scope by clicking through now.

Charlize let her gold mini-sheath dress speak for itself at the Dior Haute Couture show during Paris fashion week.

Charlize's effortless beauty makes a simple black tunic and mid-rise, strappy heels seem all the more classic.

Never one to shy away from showing a hint of skin, Charlize paired her sheer Dior number with Christian Louboutin [4] slingback pumps and a box-clutch.

At the Met Gala, Charlize wore Dior Couture, choosing the same elegant silhouette that always seems to suit her. A draped tuxedo jacket adds some structure to her look.

Charlize's off-duty style always feels polished. If she's sporting jeans, you can expect she'll refrain from sloppiness with a tailored blazer.

Charlize sported Stella McCartney [5]'s avant-garde, fringe-embellished mini for a visit to the Charles James exhibit.

Charlize took the Academy Awards red carpet in this jaw-dropping, sheer-overlay Dior gown. It was certainly one of her most memorable fashion moments, as she soared to the top of best-dressed lists without the help of a bright color.

We're obsessed with the appeal of Charlize's sleek skinnies with a pair of casual trainers.

The geometric details of Charlize's look make for an eye-catching outfit with multiple focal points.

For the Snow White and the Huntsman Tokyo photo call, the starlet chose a sexy The Row leather dress and Dior sandals.

She rocked a sleek Roland Mouret [29] menswear-inspired look at GQ's Men of the Year awards in 2011.

She wore a mesh-infused, one-shouldered Stella McCartney [30] dress with mesh Manolo Blahnik [31] sandals to the Young Adult LA premiere.

One way to dress up a maxidress? Top it off with a blazer á la Charlize's Dior dress and blazer combo.

Va-va-voom! Charlize stunned in a siren red Dior sheath and gold Jimmy Choo [32] sandals at the NYC premiere of Young Adult.

For a day out in LA, Charlize kept it casual and chi with a little help from her Givenchy [33] purse, Dior sandals, and Paul Smith [34] sunglasses.

Letting a little lace peek through was the name of the game for Charlize when she wore this slinky black Alexander McQueen [35] dress in early 2012.

How cool is her white Stella McCartney [38] blazer? Definitely a must-have for Summer.

Airport couture never looked so good — Charlize toted a Jimmy Choo [40] purse and flaunted her cool-girl Fiorentini + Baker boots while traveling.

We love the juxtaposition of wrap-front and pretty pleats in this Boy. by Band of Outsiders [41] LBD.

For a New York Times talk, Charlize wore a printed Thakoon [42] top, Stella McCartney [43] black blazer, and J Brand [44] jeans.

Looks like Charlize is a fan of the thigh-high slit, too, as seen in this long Acne dress.

She opted for a cutout Lanvin [45] LBD for the 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

A blazer, nude tote, and cargo jeans are a totally easy way to get that cool-girl look, especially when you want to keep the vibe lowkey.

Not one to every shy away from her signature LBD look, she vamped it up a bit more this time with gold-infused heels.
