Charlize Theron says Dior was the "perfect match" to become a partner for her Africa Outreach Project.

The actress was named the brand ambassador for the designer label in 2004, which has seen her star in the brand's J'adore fragrance campaigns ever since.

Christine Dior has recently been announced as a financial partner for Charlize's Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) and the charity's 2021 Youth Leaders Scholarship Program and Charlize has described it as the perfect match.

Dior has also launched the #DiorStandsWithWomen campaign to celebrate powerful women, including Charlize and fellow face of Dior, Cara Delevingne.

"Being the face of such an iconic perfume as J'adore for more than 15 years has been such an honour, and Dior has been such a collaborative and supportive partner. It's been an ideal match, since so much of what Dior stands for and behind really resonates for me. In particular, the celebration of women and the incredible talent, passion and altruism of women," the actress tells WWD.

"The empowerment inherent in #DiorStandsWithWomen and #DiorChinUp are the values that I, and all of us at CTAOP, also believe strongly in. And J'adore has also always embodied these same values in a natural way. I'm so proud to have collaborated on so many incredible campaigns and looking forward to continuing this beautiful tradition," she adds.
