Charlize Theron was among the dignitaries and celebrities who attended an official memorial service for Nelson Mandela today.
Wearing a formal white jacket with a black shirt, the South Africa-born beauty sported her short blonde hair in a side-swept pixie do. She blew a kiss to the audience upon arrival before sitting down next to U2 frontman Bono at the event, which took place today in South Africa.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell was also among the guests attending the memorial service. Last week she posted a picture of herself with Mandela on Facebook along with a tribute, writing: “Nelson Mandela has stood as a figure of strength, hope, freedom, selflessness and love, and I join everyone across the world in mourning his passing.”
“He was much more than just a figurehead to me - he was my mentor, my honorary grandfather, my Tata,” added the model. “Since meeting him in 1993, he guided me and gave me a reason for being in the tough times of my life. He changed my perception of the world.”
As well as celebrities more than 60 heads of state attended the service, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and US President Barack Obama.
