The Snow White stars casually began to stir up buzz for their fairy tale flick at WonderCon 2012, where Stewart layered a Balenciaga quilted leather jacket over her graphic T and Theron paired her fitted jacket with a Thakoon blouse and J Brand jeans.
Stewart (in Louis Vuitton) added a few inches to her diminutive frame with a pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps, but was still dwarfed by the statuesque Theron (in a Roland Mouret dress and Tabitha Simmons booties) when they posed at a photo call in Arundel, England.
The actresses' strikingly similar gowns had fashion watchers doing a red carpet double take at the U.K. premiere of Snow White and The Huntsman. Theron flashed a pair of sexy hotpants underneath her sheer Christian Dior Haute Couture gown, Stewart worked a more goth version of the look in Marchesa's lace dress and embroidered skeleton illusion bodysuit.

At a press event in Madrid, Theron gave the press the bold shoulder in a tailored crimson dress by Giambattista Valli, while Stewart channeled her inner warrior princess in a sleeveless chiffon BCBG Max Azria dress and leather harness belt.
Both actresses sported basic black ensembles and cool kicks (Charlize in Nike low tops, Kristen in her go-to Converse Chuck Taylors) when they made an appearance on the Spanish television show El Hormiguero.

Theron chose a Lanvin LBD and strappy Christian Louboutin sandals for an appearance on The Today Show in New York City. Across the country in L.A., Stewart donned chic Stella McCartney separates for a Snow White screening.
