Posted on Author VanessaComments Off on Charlize Theron Teams Up With TOMS for a Cause
For their third collaboration, philanthropic footwear company TOMS and the always-stunning Charlize Theron have joined forces to design a limited-edition espadrille that benefits the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP).
During last Friday’s launch celebration at the new TOMS flagship, the South African-born starlet explained to E! why she and founder Blake Mycoskie are a perfect pair: “We saw great opportunity to enhance each other’s dreams of change in a way that might not have been able to happen if we didn’t partner […] I’m not ever going to get married, but this is the closest I’m going to get to a marriage that actually works.”
The orange shoe, which supports vital HIV prevention programs in Africa, features CTAOP’s sunshine logo and motto. Watch Theron discuss the collab below and shop women’s ($58) and kids ($34) styles here.

A diverse group of musicians, actors, athletes, artists and the nation’s top creative talents are joining the #GivingTuesday movement to help inspire the first national day dedicated to giving coinciding with the Holiday season. Instead of focusing solely on sales and shopping, these celebrities are supporting some of the country’s most innovative charities, volunteer organizations, global campaigns and community groups as they “get out the give” this November 27. With more than 2,000 partner organizations in all 50 states, there are many ways these men and women are building awareness and support for issues ranging from Hurricane Sandy relief to children’s education to women’s health to aid for veteransâ€¦and myriad causes in between. A few examples of some of the top stars who are supporting their favorite charities include:
Charlize Theron and the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) are teaming up with the Center for Living Peace to raise funds for CTAOP’s mission to keep African youth safe from HIV. Every donation made to CTAOP on #GivingTuesday will be matched by the Center for Living Peace (up to $10,000).
Hollywood actress Charlize Theron is all set to be the face of the Dior VIII watch collection.
The 35-year-old star, who has previously served as the representative for the French brand J’adore’s fragrance collection – did not hesitate when she was asked to work with Dior because she saw how “good looking” the watch was.
“To work with them was a no-brainer and when I saw the product I was like, ‘That is a good looking watch!’,” she
However, the Oscar-winning beauty has not always been a great fan of watches and only recently began to sport the wrist accessory because she “missed” it, reported Contactmusic.
“I didn’t even wear a watch for like 10 years and only two years ago did I start wearing one again. I really missed it as a piece of jewellery,” she said.
Theron also said that she had never come to terms with seeing billboards with her face on them.
“How is that normal? It’s always incredibly bizarre. It’s like an out of body experience in many ways. I’m very proud of it, but it’s very awkward to look at yourself like that,” she said.
