Young Adult‘s Charlize Theron attended the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards earlier this week in a deceptively simple Lanvin frock from the Spring 2012 collection. At first, it’s a very plain crewneck LBD with an embellished shoulder, then you do a scrolldown and… her thigh is exposed. We’re never very charitable toward cutouts but doesn’t this look awkward (of course, it doesn’t help that her look reminded us of this recent Lady Gaga fashion disaster).

Charlize(‘s stylist) wisely opted for plain ankle straps and we’re almost inclined to say she pulled it off. She is, after all, Charlize Theron. What do you say?
