Charlize Theron (Oscar winner, activist, face of Dior and Sean Penn's latest love) turns 39 this week. We're celebrating by taking style notes from her throwback silver-screen style. In 1996's dark thriller, 2 Days In The Valley, she played a glamorous hustler vamp — and looked hella cool in the process. Think film-noir seductress meets Victoria Beckham in her poshest Spice Girls looks. 

Steal style tips from Charlize in a '90s strappy dress with a choker neckline — extra kudos if it's shiny silver. For movie gurl glamour, complete the look with manicured brows, pencil-lined peach lipstick and a smoky eye. Happy birthday, Char!
