As part of the promotional blitz for her new movie Young Adult, Charlize Theron posed for the December cover of Vogue as that tried-and-true magazine cover trope, “sexy wet lady emerging from the ocean with improbably perfect hair and makeup.” According to Fashionista, the cover and editorial were (possibly) shot by Annie Leibovitz and Charlize is (maybe) wearing the Calvin Klein Spring 2012 collection.

Theron certainly looks gorgeous in that diaphanous, silvery dress, but is an aquatic photo really the right look for December? It seems a bit out of season to me. Nevertheless, I’m sure the photos within will be such an overload of pretty that it’ll make everyone forget that it’s currently freezing outside and the ocean is a grey and choppy place of death.
