Charlize Theron has always been known for her powerful style, but a lot of her look can be credited to her stylist Leslie Fremar. Theron has stunned in one outfit after another over the year, but it takes a lot to put together the perfect look.
Fremar is the stylist for many popular celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore. She’s very proud of her work and Theron’s confidence that comes out in the clothes she wears.
“That strength [in her clothes] comes from her personality. That’s really who she is,” Fremar said in an interview with stylebistro.com. “She’s a very strong confident woman. That comes out in her clothes.”
She also commented on the feeling she gets after seeing her outfits on display.
“I get excited when I see all the pictures, because there’s so much work that goes into it. I get excited for major events like the Oscars,” Fremar said, before talking about Charlize Theron’s look. “This year Charlize was in Dior and Reese was wearing this beautiful Louis Vuitton dress. I get really excited the next day when the pictures start coming through the press. It’s more exciting when the press is positive. It definitely helps.”
Sometimes, it takes a lot of convincing to get her actresses confident in wearing something different that isn’t necessarily their classic look.
“I think they’re scared of things that are a little too avant-garde or a little too over the top. They’re not necessarily scared of it when they’re trying it on in a fitting, they’re more scared that people aren’t going to be receptive to it,” she added. “And when they’re promoting something, they don’t want that to be a distraction from what they’re there to be doing. They’re not models, so sometimes the clothes can distract from the reason that they’re there.”
No matter how much Fremar puts into her work, it all comes out once her stars take to the red carpet or any other appearance. She’s definitely one of the best in the business, which is obvious through Charlize Theron’s powerful style.
