Charlize Theron | 1994

Photography by: CHUCK GOODENOUGH

This South African-born stunner’s first major campaign for GUESS was originally set up to be a product-only handbag shoot, but Paul Marciano made a quick move to add a model, requesting “someone spectacular and new” from an agency. Expectations were exceeded when Theron stepped in front of the lens at the young age of 18. She was beautiful and natural. Her attitude and posing was spot on. “I could not stop shooting,” Goodenough recalls, as Theron elegantly modeled handbags and draped herself across trunks in an East LA studio. Theron earlier showed off her natural beauty in a sultry black and white photo taken for GUESS in 1992 by Mark Humphrey.
