She's stylish, beautiful and talented - but Charlize Theron also has something of a clumsy side.
The stunning actress almost parted with her strappy Christian Louboutin heels today as she attempted to negotiate the grass in them at a Palm Springs luncheon.
Just over a month ago, the star made an ungainly arrival to the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York - and almost took a tumble after tripping over a floor light.

So today's little embarrassing episode would not be the first time the South African-born Theron has taken a very public wobble.
Charlize looked stunning in a bright green dress as she attended the Variety Indie Impact Awards afternoon lunch - held at the Palm Springs International Film Festival - to pick up a gong for her commitment to independent film.
She can be seen in on frame adjusting her shoe after it came loose as she walked on the grass.

The award - sponsored by Mercedes-Benz - celebrates actors who are able to move easily between indie films and mainstream studio blockbusters.
Oscar-winning Charlize, 36, won an Oscar in 2003 for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster and is both a producer and star in new Paramount comedy Young Adult.
Theron has always been a staunch supporter of independent films, balancing big studio projects with speciality productions such as In the Valley Of Elah and The Burning Plain.

Previous winners of the award include Philip Seymour Hoffman and Mark Wahlberg.
The presentation to Charlize was part of an event featuring Variety's 10 Directors to Watch honorees.
Other VIP guests at the event included Shailene Woodley.
