Angelina Jolie was born on June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles. Being the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, she began studying acting at age 11 at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in NYC. As a child, Jolie wanted to become a funeral director, but she eventually decided against it and started as a professional model and as an actress in music videos. She went on to act in films directed by her older brother, James Haven Voight.
Angelina later made her major film debut in Hackers, where she costarred with her then-future husband, Jonny Lee Miller. Years later, Jolie had a brief marriage to Billy Bob Thorton, which ended in 2002. During the marriage, Jolie starred in Tomb Raider and after the divorce, she starred in Tomb Raider 2. In 2005, she costarred with Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, for which she was paid ten million dollars.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie recently got their tiny tots together with Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's new baby, for an adorable playdate at the Pitt-Jolie estate in Santa Barbara, Ca. Shiloh and Kingston are soo going to be a celebrity baby powercouple in 20 years, sharing a limo to prom with Sean Preston and Suri. Photos from this leisurly day are super-low quality due to the probably mega-telephoto lens that was needed, but you can still tell those kids are cute!
Now living in Africa will have a major influence on the birth of her baby. Her and Brad have decided to name the baby with a representative name of Africa. Apparently, they even know the sex of the baby, but are not saying yet. Give it some time; she has to start shopping soon. She has even considered giving birth under water. If they have a girl they should honor the baby with the name Jennifer.
Angelina and Brad are living in Africa with more body guards than most royalty. Jolie and Pitt fear their kids Maddox and Zahara may be kidnapped. $5 million this year alone on security! Think how many shoes you could buy with all that money! In fact all of Africa could be wearing Gucci head to toe. Isn’t this a little over the top?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 08 2013 in Sydney, Australia. Angelina Jolie was spotted, along with her brood, for a day at the theatre in Sydney, Australia earlier today, December 8, as the family (along with a few friends) took in a showing of "The Lion King" musical. Sticking to her usual uniform of head-to-toe black, there's no denying that Angie looked super sophisticated. Starting with a sheer dotted blouse (one of Zoa's similar options, such as the Lace Silk Button Up Shirt in Black or the V Neck Bell Sleeve Blouse in Black, would make for great similar alternatives), Angelina then slipped into a pair of black skinny jeans (like Rag & Bone's The Legging in Shoreditch) and carried a thick black coat. From there, she added on a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers and black ballet flats (get the look with BC Footwear's Shiny & New in Black), and finished the look off with a gold chain strap bag. Thoughts on AJ's street style, friends? While Angie is in Australia to direct her upcoming film Unbroken, Brad is currently filming his latest project The Fury in London, however Us Weekly is reporting that Mr. Pitt will join his wife in Sydney for the holidays. According to a source, "Brad is flying Down Under just after his 50th birthday on December 18 to join his fiancée for some holiday cheer. They're used to celebrating wherever they're working." That's nice that they'll get to spend the holiday season together, don't you think?
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 15 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Always one to keep it basic in all black, Angelina Jolie was photographed arriving in Los Angeles at LAX on August 15 and was accompanied by her son Maddox (who is now 12!). For her airport outfit, Angie started with a pair of slim fit black jeans (get the look with either Hudson Jeans' Nico Super Skinny in Black or James Jeans' High Class Skinny in Black Shadow) and a simple black top (like Michael Stars' Scoop Neck Hi-Low Top in Black), and then added on a pair of oversized, cat eye shades and simple strappy sandals. A black tote (try Julie K Handbags' Jacqui Black Cobra) and stud earrings finished off her ensemble. What do you think of Angie's outfit on this occasion, everyone - chic and classic, or a been-there-done-that bore? In other news, the doctor who treated Angelina when she recently made the decision to have a preventive double mastectomy is speaking out to Los Angeles Magazine about Angie's decision. Dr. Kristi Funk of the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills said: "Jolie waited to find the perfect timing in her personal and professional life, but I think most importantly in her soul. She is intensely private, but she calculated the moment when she would be ready to reveal something so personal. When someone who is arguably the most beautiful woman in the world removes the part of her body that is symbolic of femininity and sexuality, you have to say, 'Why would she do that?' She knew always that in her philanthropic core she couldn't keep this a secret and be who she is. She always knew." Thoughts, readers?
Angelina Jolie seen on Mar 27 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Angelina Jolie was photographed arriving at LAX on March 27, donning an all-black ensemble as she headed to her waiting car. According to JustJared, "Angie is back in the states after taking a short trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the Gisozi Genocide Memorial in Rwanda, as part of her work as a UNHCR ambassador." For her airport outfit, Angelina paired a black maxi dress (both TYSA's Hepburn Dress in Black and Meghan Los Angeles' Faith Long Dress in Black are similar) with a traditional black blazer (such as Ella Moss' Mozzy Blazer in Black) and a pair of aviator sunglasses, and then layered on several gold necklaces. A black backpack and a pair of black leather boots (if you're interested in snagging a similar pair, check out Seychelles' Slap On The Wrist Boot in Black) were the final touches to AJ's outfit. This is definitely a standard Angie outfit - being head to toe black and all - but do you think she looks good here? Angie spoke to her trip in a video with The Guardian, and said: "It's often we speak about the dramas and the pain and horrors of the Congo, but it’s also a wonderful place with extraordinary people. I think the big message is… this initiative started by the Foreign Secretary is an extraordinary thing, but what we’re saying and what we’re here to do is to try to scale it up and make this a worldwide focus." It seems like Angelina shows no signs of stopping her global causes anytime soon... thoughts, everyone?
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 27 2012 in Beverly Hills, CA. Going for a little shopping trip earlier today, February 27, in Beverly Hills with twins Vivienne and Knox, along with hubby Brad Pitt's mom Jane, Angelina Jolie looked casual and chic as she went along her way. The night before, all eyes were on Angie's right leg, as she posed and posed and posed her way through the Oscar red carpet and telecast, taking full advantage of the high slit in her Versace gown. Did any of you think that Angie's posing was a bit (or a lot) over the top, or did you think that she was working it? She definitely was much more demure for her shopping trip, pairing black leggings (like Hale Bob's Solid Legging in Black) with a pair of black leather boots (try Cynthia Vincent's Goodwin Boot in Black) and a matching black leather tote. Up top, Angelina chose a button up white blouse (get the look with JET by John Eshaya's Gauze Rayon Shirt in White) under a simple blazer (Elizabeth & James' Cate Blazer in Black is a great basic). A pair of aviators and a big gold ring provided the finishing touches. What are your thoughts on AJ's outfit here, friends. Do you prefer to see her casual like this, or all glammed up on the red carpet?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 06 2011 in New York, NY. Angelina Jolie wore her favorite color on the red carpet for a screening of the new film that she directed, In the Land of Blood and Honey, that was hosted by Marie Claire and held at the Hearst Tower in NYC on December 6. For her big night, Angie wore a L’Agence velvet tuxedo (get the look by pairing Tibi's Velveteen Blazer in Black with their Velveteen Legging in Black) and silk camisole (try Ani Apparel's Pocket Tank in Black), and then accessorized with David Yurman earrings and bracelets. For similar bracelets, check out Calico Juno Designs' Bracelet 28 in Gold. What are your thoughts on Angelina's look here - somber or sexy? The actress has recently received flack for her super skinny frame (what else is new), however, there is a reason for it. According to Us Weekly, "the U.N. Goodwill ambassador puts herself on fasts to make statements for the children she visits. She says, ‘If they can’t eat, I can’t eat.' She does different cleanses from around the world. It’s very dramatic, but that’s how she gets." I'm all for supporting the causes you feel passionately about, but it sounds like what Angie is doing is quite dangerous for her body. Thoughts?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 16 2010 in Madrid, Spain. Continuing to promote her new movie The Tourist, Angelina Jolie makes a stylish appearance in Madrid on December 16 rocking one of the season's hottest accessories: the cropped fur shrug. Granted she's only dabbling in this trend with a fuzzy angora version by Michael Kors, I still appreciate that she's breaking up the black and stepping slightly out of her comfort zone. At the photocall, Angelina started with a pair of wide leg black trousers (like Tag Jeans' Stretch Knit Wide Leg Pant in Black) with a black tank tucked in and the aforementioned champagne furry shrug (get the look with True Grit's Shawl Collar Jacket in Winter White or make it a little edgier with Luc by Lucy's Fur Crop Vest in Rabbit Fur). Ang accessorized with a chic gold cuff (try Anna Beck's Timor Twisted Cuff in Gold) and wore her hair pulled back in a casual ponytail with piecey bangs. What do you think of her look, is she showing some improvement from her normal day-to-day all black snoozefest? I have to give her extra credit because she has been traveling a lot over the past few weeks, from Paris to Rome to Berlin with co-star Johnny Depp at her side. All the hard work seems to have paid off with a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical, but it seems like it's not just us still trying to wrap our minds around that one – I personally wasn't aware The Tourist is a comedy or a musical! Angelina even commented on her reaction when she and Brad heard the news: “We were laughing because it’s the first time that I’ve been in the comedic category so it’s new for me.” Hope the joke's not on her!
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 06 2010 in New York, NY. Making their way back to US after spending a week in Paris, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt make quite a statement at the premiere of The Tourist at the Ziegfield Theatre on December 6. What a creepy stance they have together – and yet Brad looks so content! Surprisingly, Angelina went for a sweeping winter white Atelier Versace gown with a seductive high slit revealing white Ferragamo pumps, accented by sparkling diamond teardrop earrings (I can't wait to try Robyn Rhodes' Kemba in Forest Agate as a unique alternative). The all white look is a stark contrast to her normal attire, but I am a big fan of the curve flattering wrap dress silhouette (try Ella Moss' Jordanna Dress in Raisin for a more practical, wintery version), I just would have preferred a neutral shoe (something like KORS Michael Kors' Julian Patent Pump in Sand). Contrary to her usual style, Brad is the one in all black here, layering his Burberry double breasted coat (try Joe's Jeans' Melbourne Coat in Black) over a black shirt, black scarf, black trousers (AG Jeans' Protégé Cord in Super Black are a great denim alternative) and – what a surprise! – black leather shoes. What do you think of Brangelina's red carpet style, are they a match made in heaven or what? However impossible it might be for us to understand what makes them work, Brad and Angie seem to have it figured out as they've been partners – and parents – for five years now. When it comes to adding new members to the family it seems like they don't bat an eye, but earlier this week Angelina addressed the possibility on Larry King Live: "No plans at the moment… But we’re always open [to the idea]." She continued that the constant paparazzi presence is a major concern when it comes to the kiddies: "We try not to get them into the middle of it … We just have to kind of smile and say, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not scary. They just like to take pictures. As a parent, the only thing you can do is try to make sure that they don’t feel it’s a threat, you don’t act like it’s a threat, and you just keep smiling so they don’t feel anything negative." Funny that this is coming from one of the least smiley starlets – she's barely cracking her ice cold stare at her own premiere! What do you think of Brad and Ang's approach to giving their kids a "normal" life?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 02 2010 in Paris, France. Angelina Jolie is one très chic tourist while arriving at The Meurice Hotel in Paris, France on December 2. Ang has been in the City of Lights for the past week taking care of her promotional duties for her new film with Johnny Depp, The Tourist, and on this fine occasion she actually stepped out in something that isn't black – shocking! Angie arrived at her hotel in a luxurious camel Ferragamo coat (stay warm in BB Dakota's modestly priced Lamarr Jacket in Earth) with sleek Jimmy Choo leather boots (try Farylrobin's Elsbeth Platform Wedge Suede Knee High in Taupe) and a black Gucci tote (carry all your essentials in Rough Roses' Jewel Tote in Black at a fraction of the cost). Angelina even gave the paparazzi a little wave – what's come over her?! I have to say I really like the tan coat with her hair, she's looking pretty rejuvenated after spending a few grueling months filming in Bosnia. While celebs including Jessica Alba and Joan Collins have recently come out in praise of Angelina for everything from her humanitarian efforts to her timeless beauty, there's one loud mouthed celeb who's definitely not a fan – Chelsea Handler. The raucous comedian had a few choice words to share about Ang in a New Jersey comedy show over the weekend, telling the crowd: "She's a homewrecker, she is. She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to. I don't f***ing believe you… She gives interviews, 'I don't have a lot of female friends.' Because you're a f***ing c***. You're a f***ing b***h!" Easy, Chels! Over the Thanksgiving holiday Chelsea and Jennifer Aniston were spotted having a girls trip in Cabo, so it's no surprise that Chelsea has such searing words for Angelina. Still, I don't know if I'd want my friend publicly denouncing the woman who ruined my marriage – I mean, it's not exactly in good taste! What do you readers think?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 29 2010 in Paris, France. Press shy Angelina Jolie surfaces in Paris, France in a signature all black look at the premiere of long time love Brad Pitt's animated new movie Megamind on November 29. Ang walked the blue carpet with her man wearing a mix of black sequins, velvet and satin, which you can recreate for yourself by mixing different textures and fabrics, like Paige Premium Denim's Hidden Hills Skinny in Black Velvet with Yvette Mandell's Sequin Tank in Black and a satiny topper like Jenny Han's Leg of Mutton Tux Blazer in Black. Don't forget to add an interesting heel like Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Black Embossed Python and you're ready to take on any holiday related event with class. What do you think of Angelina's toned down premiere look, do you think the sequins and velvet give it enough definition or would you have preferred to see Angie in a gown? Both Angelina and Brad have been spotted traveling frequently lately, busy with film schedules. The family was reunited in Paris earlier this week to celebrate Pax's 7th birthday, with adventures including a boating outing cruising the Seine and a hot air balloon ride over the city. With her commitments between sets and as a UN ambassador, Angelina recently shared with Us Weekly how she copes with the loneliness that can accompany such a hectic travel schedule, taking the interview while visiting flood victims in Pakistan: "I'll talk to my family… I talk to Brad [Pitt]; he wants to know as much as he can about these issues and every trip. He's been here as well; he came with me after the earthquake. But I don't know, I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to." Sounds like a very isolated life!
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 16 2010 in London, UK. Continuing her colorful (well, at least by her terms) fashion streak, Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet of the London premiere on Salt in a sparkly gown in Leicester Square on August 16. Paying homage to the city, Ang picked a gown from British designer Amanda Wakeley, shimmering in the floor length frock with lilac accents at the shoulder and waist (lighten up at your end-of-summer soirees in Sue Wong’s Goddess Gown with Beading Detail in Beige or Sue Wong's Macrame Mermaid Maxi in White) paired with classic Ferragamo nude peep-toe pumps (display your elegant taste with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline D'Orsay in Gold Satin). Staying true to her demure style, Ang added sex appeal with her sexy new bangs and kept her accessories light with a simple amber cocktail ring (add a pop of color with Femme Metale's Carneilian Caged Gem Ring in Red), allowing her tattoos to peek out. What do you think of Angelina's red carpet taste, does it suit her? I wish the dress had a few less sparkles and a bit more shape, but as long as it isn't black I can't complain! Though Ang has repeatedly said she wants to retire from acting to focus on mommyhood, rumors are swirling that Angelina is being courted to play Marilyn Monroe in a big screen adaptation of the novel The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe, which chronicles Marilyn's last two years of life through the eyes of her dog. Interesting concept, I'll say! Nevertheless, when asked about her potential next role Angelina laughed: “I don’t know, it’s a rumor right now. You’ll probably know before me!” Better go barking up a different tree!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jul 26 2010 in Narita, Japan. Continuing her global press tour, Angelina Jolie touches down at Japan's Narita International Airport on July 26 with four of her six children in tow. Ang was all smiles as she held hands with the kids and made her way through the airport, but Maddox was feeling a little grouchy after the long flight, and took the opportunity to smack brother Pax just as the paps were snapping away! Check out the photos and share your thoughts on Ang's reaction – or lack thereof? Maybe she was waiting to get to their hotel before putting Maddox in timeout. Do you think she made the right move avoiding public discipline, unlike Kate Gosselin who was called out for spanking one of her daughters publicly? Regardless of her parenting skills Ang was dressed for her role as a trendy mama, back in black in a satin shift dress with a tie belt (check out Luc by Lucy's Classic Black Dress with Tie or Single Dress' Scoop Neck Shift Dress in Black/Natural) and casual tan sandals (love the comfy wide strap on Farylrobin's Whitney in Brown). As usual Angelina kept her accessories to a minimum, wearing a simple black bracelet (try Accessories & Beyond's Silver Bangle Bracelet in Black) and black aviators keeping her peeps shaded. What do you think of Ang's travel style, does it work for her? One thing I have to comment on – her legs are getting mighty skinny! Is it just me thinking Angelina is looking a little too thin these days?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jul 25 2010 in Moscow, Russia. Looking ravishing in red, Angelina Jolie forgoes her passion for black in this vibrant gown at the Salt premiere in Moscow, Russia on July 25. The premiere comes after a string of press appearances surrounding Ang's new flick, but I have to say this is my favorite so far. If you're going to do color, do it right! Angelina stepped out in a plunging Versace halter gown with elegant side ruching detail (indulge in Sue Wong's Ruched Ruby Maxi Dress in Vermillion or if you prefer a shorter hem try Black Halo's Gabriel Mini in Red or Voom by Joy Han's Samantha Babydoll in Red), letting the wind work to her advantage as it lifts the chiffon train behind her. I'm not sure when she found time to get a haircut, but Ang debuted choppy side bangs on the red carpet, a look that I think really works for her. Between the new hair and the vibrant dress Ang finally has some color back in her face! What do you think of Angelina's sexy look, do you prefer this to her normal all black ensembles? Despite a number of expected hits debuting at the box office this weekend, Salt battled it out with Leonardo DiCaprio's Inception and brought in over $36 million in its opening weekend, finishing in the #2 spot at the box office. Well done, Ang! Did any of you have a chance to catch her on the big screen over the weekend?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jul 19 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Reinvigorating her sex appeal, Angelina Jolie arrives at the premiere of her new action thriller Salt at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in LA on July 19. For once Ang picked something black that isn't drab at all, looking ravishing in a sequin covered strapless mini by Emporio Armani (shine on in Robert Rodriguez's Dominique Sequin Dress in Black or keep it classy in Single Dress' Strapless Pleat Dress in Black) paired with nude peeptoe Ferragamo pumps (love Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Sabbia Embossed Python). Never one to over-accessorize, Ang accentuated the look with a pair of sparkly earrings (try CC Skye's stunning Pave Pyramid Stud Earrings in Silver) and a chic wrap bracelet. What do you think of Angie's red carpet attire, is she working the part of a stealthy agent gone awry? At the premiere Angelina was joined by long-time lover Brad Pitt, with papa Jon Voight also dropping by to show his support. After years of estrangement, Ang recently put her issues with her father aside in favor of her kids having a relationship with their grandpa. In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Angelina shared her views on what it takes to make a relationship last when you have six kids: “The children certainly tie us together, but a relationship won’t hold if it’s only about the kids. You also must be really interested in each other and have a really, really wonderful, exciting time together. We do. Brad and I love being together. We enjoy it. We need it, and we always find that special time. We stay connected… If Brad and I are strong and happy, then our kids have happy parents, and that’s the best thing we can give them." If only it were so simple for all parents! Do you agree with Ang's philosophy?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jun 30 2010 in Cancun, Mexico. Angelina Jolie makes a gorgeous splash at a photo call held in Cancun, Mexico for her latest action thriller Salt on June 30. The film won't be released in theatres for another 3 weeks, but already Ang is making a dazzling comeback to promote her spy flick. At this event Angie sparkled in a white strapless Versace dress (love the exquisite detail of Sue Wong's Floral Overlay Dress in Ivory or the simple elegance of James Perse's Tube Dress in White) with Ferragamo peep-toe pumps (very similar to Coye Nokes' sophisticated Jacqueline D'Orsay in Gold Satin). Angelina kept her accessories light, wearing a simple bracelet (love Jules Smith's Super Stud Bangle in Rose Gold) and her hair straight with natural make up. To me this is the perfect way to balance the sweltering humidity while maintaining a gorgeous silhouette, wouldn't you agree? While Ang very rarely opens up, she's on the cover of Vanity Fair this month, featuring a surprisingly in depth interview dishing on everything from her kids to her relationship with Brad. Apart from the usual denial of another pregnancy, Ang revealed something slightly startling: her plans to retire as an actress in the near future. She explains, “It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.” She went on to explain she wants to spend more time with her kids as they get older, but didn't go in depth on whether or not she'll take on a different day job. Ang isn't the first celeb to announce an early retirement in recent months, but do you think she'll really step down? Six mouths are a lot to feed!
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 07 2010 in Miami, FL. Making a pretty unlikely sports fan, Angelina Jolie touches down in Miami just in time for the Super Bowl on February 7. Long time love Brad Pitt and 8-year-old Maddox flew in via private jet earlier in the weekend before mama Jolie joined them at the stadium. You’d think at a football game you might opt to support your team by wearing their colors, or at least going casual in jeans and a tee, but not Angie. She arrived at the airport in loose black trousers (AG Jeans' Angel Cord in Super Black is a good winter option), a black tank (T by Alexander Wang's Baggy Silk Tank in Black is a great versatile basic) and classic black Burberry trench (if you can't afford the 2k real thing, stay warm and chic in Suzabelle's Nicolet Trench Coat in Black), carrying a futuristic travel bag over one shoulder and sacrificing fashion for comfort in a pair of flat blat utility boots (Martha Davis' Superhero Short Boot in Black are a way trendier option just as comfortable for travel). Tinted aviators and a plain wrist watch complete Angie's uber plain 'fit. I think it's safe to say this woman is in dire need of a style intervention, don't you think? While her drab and dreary ensemble may not seem very festive, Brad and Angie celebrated the Saints victory with a big smooch captured on camera, officially dispelling rumors that they split (at least on paper) a few weeks ago. It all started when UK's News of the World reported the coupled signed a custody agreement to make their split official, and after canceling several awards show appearances together in January rumors continued to swirl that this outlandish claim might actually be true. Not so fast – their rep claimed the rumors were "total b.s." and the couple was actually signing a form of a pre-nup agreement to protect each other's assets, and their six kiddies. Wonder if this means an official wedding is in the works for the world's hottest couple?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 07 2010 in New York, NY. Taking care of business in NYC, Angelina Jolie runs a few errands with Brad in midtown on January 6. Angie has been back in the Big Apple re-shooting scenes for her upcoming thriller Salt, doing her best to stay out of the public eye with the kiddies. Despite the cold Angie stayed true to her sophisticated (yet dull?) style during the day in a black dress (like PGD Style's simple Joni Ruffle Mini Dress in Black) topped with a warm wool coat (check out the similar style of Pink Polka Dot's Cozy Coat in Grey) and her favorite knee high boots (get the classy look with Coye Nokes' Josephine Tall Boot in Black). Ang kept her accessories limited to a two-toned tote (love Danielle Nicole's Sofia Shoulder Bag in Purple/Cream), oversized sunnies and glittering diamond knot earrings. Later in the evening Angie changed into a curve hugging cable knit sweater dress, trading her daytime bag for a sleek clutch (like Lodis' Audry Golightly Clutch Wallet in Black). While her attire is on the safe side, you can't say Angie doesn't look classy – and she's actually wearing a color besides black! Ok, so navy and charcoal aren't really a stretch, but at least there's room for improvement. It seems like not a day goes by without out some tabloid scrutiny of Brangelina's relationship, but the latest buzz came straight from Angie herself. Speaking with Germany's Das Neue magazine, she shared some shocking insight on she and Brad's romance behind closed doors: "I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It's worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards… Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other." Very interesting perspective for two of Hollywood's most lustworthy celebs to have such an unorthodox attitude toward monogamy! What are your thoughts on open relationships, especially with children (not to mention 6) involved?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 30 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Breaking news: Angelina Jolie is wearing color! Spotted dining with her long time lover Brad Pitt at La Dolce Vita in Beverly Hills on November 31, Angie finally took the plunge and gave her tired penchant for pitch black ensembles a rest for the night. Pairing a vibrant canary silk top (try Blaque Label's Ruffle One Shoulder Top in Yellow) with classy black silk pants (Rebecca Taylor's Terry Wide Leg Pant in Black are a great staple), Angelina paired modest black ballet flats (love the stud detail on Gwyneth Shoes' Mallory Flat in Black) and an oversized black clutch (like GoldenBleu's Charley Clutch in Black) to accent her lustrous attire. What do you think of her date night 'fit? Brangelina's love life has been the subject of public scrutiny for years now, but this week a new book came out taking it to a whole new level. Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was released this week, with author Ian Halperin dishing on Brad and Angie's secret lives behind closed doors, declaring, "They've broken up so many times it would make your head spin." According to US Weekly, Halperin alleges Brad and Angie fight constantly, about the kids and surprisingly, Brad's support for Barack Obama. A few weeks ago the gossip mag published the scoop from a source supposedly close to the couple: "She hates [Obama]. Angie isn't Republican, but she thinks Obama is all smoke and mirrors… They get in nasty arguments all the time about it. She doesn't respect Brad when it comes to politics, but, in the end, this won't tear them apart." Do you think there is any truth to what this "source" is saying?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 14 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. The always beautiful Angelina Jolie and longtime lover Brad Pitt are the epitome of sophistication while taking in the new MOCA 30th Anniversary exhibit in Los Angeles on November 14. When I see this couple I just think "beautiful, but boring," as they both look chic in their somber attire, there's just nothing too extraordinary about it. Angie does know how to work her classic strapless Armani Prive gown (try Lotta Stensson's 2 Layer Best Dress in Black or Susana Monaco's Racer Dress in Black), but she only gave it a hint of sparkle with small gem earrings (Castaway's Smokey Quartz Earrings in Gold have the perfect holiday sparkle) and as always natural makeup and loose, natural waves in her hair. What do you readers think of Angie's museum browsing style? While Brangelina continue on their quest to have the world one child at a time, you'll never guess what their latest philanthropic adventure is: designing a high end jewelry line for Asprey, with all proceeds benefitting the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, of which Angie is a co-founder. Going back to her creepy goth days, the collection is said to be inspired by snakes (maybe something like Jessica Elliot's Vermeil Small Ruby Eyed Snake Necklace in Gold). Hopefully their collection will help them continue to make a difference – and maybe even the chance to break out as the latest celeb designers!
Angelina Jolie seen on Sep 29 2009 in Brignoles, France. Enjoying some time off with the fam in Brignoles, France, Angelina Jolie was spotted taking Maddox grocery shopping on September 29. Making huge waves in the fashion world in a shockingly bright dress…. Kidding. Surprise surprise, she's wearing another black maxi! This one is very similar to the maxi she wore on vacation in the same area in August, except that the ugly black lace ruffles are replaced with a more refined tiered skirt. There's nothing wrong with a basic black maxi for a casual summer or fall look, but if you must go this route at least add some innovation, like the unique cut of Lotta Stensson's 2 Layer Best Dress in Black (I happen to own this dress and it's fantastically flattering!) or a fun burst of color like Vava by Joy Han's Grace Long Tube Dress in Black. Ang also carried a black tote over her shoulder (try Marnie Bug's Helen in Black) and wore a loose chain bracelet (like Kimberly Faith's Flower of the Month Bracelet in Gold) that shines next to her mirror tinted aviators. What do you think of Ang's basic black 'fit? Later in the week Brad & Angie left the kids in France and made a UNHCR trip to Damascus, Syria, where they met with exiled Iraqi refugees and spoke to the media about how important it is for the international community not to forget about them: “Most Iraqi refugees cannot return to Iraq in view of the severe trauma they experienced there, the uncertainty linked to the coming Iraqi elections, the security issues and the lack of basic services. They will, therefore, be in need of continued support from the international community.” It's so refreshing to see Angie continuing to take her Goodwill Ambassador role seriously, especially as a working mom of 6. I guess all that's left to say is: how can we help?
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 20 2009 in Brignoles, France. Looking radiant on a family vacay in France earlier this month, Angelina Jolie looks like she's thoroughly enjoying herself as she and Brad Pitt help Maddox and Pax pick out gardening supplies at a store in Brignoles, France on August 20. Brangelina spent a lot of time in the region last summer at their sprawling estate after the twins were born, and it looks like they're happy to return! When I first saw these pics I wasn't sure if they were from this summer or last – another long black dress? Yawn. But in contrast to Angie's usual somber demeanor, she looks like she's in great spirits as she helps with kids with their miniature brooms and other gardening toys. Maybe they're starting a recession garden a-la-Michelle Obama? Ang started her 'fit with a strapless black maxi complete with a girly tiered lace skirt (browse similar selections like Lotta Stensson's curve boosting 2 Layer Best Dress, Susana Monaco's Racer Dress in Black or Vix Swimwear's Solid Textured Halter Long Dress with Train in Black), pairing simple flip-flops with a plain tote (check out Zambos and Siega's Mansfield Tote in Stone in a similar neutral shade). Pulling her hair back from her face, Ang kept her sunnies on inside the store and out. In contrast to Brangelina's typical high-profile behavior, the power couple were actually playing things very casual on this particular day. They actually drove their own rental car and left the security detail at home! I'm sure they were lurking somewhere in another car but it's cool to see them trying to give their kids a sense of normalcy from time to time. It can't be easy always being followed around with cameras whenever you go out with mom and dad!
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 10 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Going back to her favorite shade, Angelina Jolie steps out in a sexy strapless leather Michael Kors dress at the Los Angeles premiere of Brad's epic new flick, Inglourious Basterds on August 10 in Hollywood. Love the side pockets and unique bias seams on the bodice, but if it looks familiar to you it's the same dress Blake Lively wore to the CFDA Awards in June, although she opted for the bubblegum pink version (imagine that on Angie!). To rock the curvy strapless vibe, try Lotta Stensson's Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Black, Rachel Pally's Fortuna Dress in Black, or Graham and Spencer's Strapless Tube Dress in Black with a pair of strappy heels like Angie's Christian Dior stilettos. Ang's stylist put the finishing touch on her 'fit with a giant red CD ring (similar to Femme Metale's Big Cinnabar Ring in Red). As usual Angie accentuated her long lashes and plump nude pout with light makeup, wearing her long tresses in loose, messy waves. I normally don't care for the slightly grungy/unrefined look but I think she makes it hot with the leather dress. Do you think this 'fit is different enough to make Angie standout? In other Ang style news, last month her long-time stylist Jennifer Rade was the victim of a burglary. A source told the NY Post that three boxes of designer goodies were snatched right before Angie came into town last month to take her pick. The source alleges, "Every designer who was sending pieces was trying to send their best stuff… Angelina was just starting the fitting process for pieces to wear when she begins promoting Salt." Neither Jen or Ang have commented on this situation, so I'm hoping the duds have already been recovered. Doesn't the thought of some low-life scoring thousands of dollars of designer digs just make you cringe?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jul 24 2009 in London, UK. It's not often we see Angelina Jolie out and about, and even less often we see her looking cute, but she touched down at London's Heathrow Airport on July 24 looking very fresh faced after what had to be an exhausting couple of days. Staying true to her somber style, Angie wore black skinnies (like 7 For All Mankind's Gwenevere Knit Skinny in Black) on her flight with buckled motorcycle boots and a loose charcoal top (check out Vince's S/S Pocket Tunic in Cinder or James Perse's Back Neck Drape in Heather Grey). The oversized tunic is a little drab, but least it's not black, and the asymmetrical neckline gives it a little style. It pretty much dwarfs her figure though – do you think she's purposely trying to hide her tummy with the loose clothes and carrying her bag across the front? Accessory wise, Ang kept it simple with a Gucci "Weekend" tote (like Kooba's Blake Shoulder Tote in Black Patent) and stealthy tinted sunnies. Angie has been traveling with her son Maddox fulfilling her UN Goodwill Ambassador duties, visiting Iraq yesterday to meet with refugees and talk with soldiers about the progress there. Speaking with misplaced children, Angie promised: "I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation. We hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq." I expect to see a hefty donation coming from Brangelina riiiight…. Now!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jul 21 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Angelina Jolie was spotted getting out of her car with son Maddox to catch their flight out LAX on July 21, and as usual, Angie stuck with an all-black look. I have a question for you readers: who do you wish would add more color to their wardrobe, Angelina or Victoria Beckham? As you know, both ladies are fond of head-to-toe black. For her airport outfit, Angie started with a loose-fitting pair of black slacks (check out Rebecca Taylor's Fit Flare Trouser in Black or, for a skinny option, Dylan George's Double Knit Skinny Pant in Black) with a simple black cami (Susana Monaco's Tie Neck Slit Top in Black has a cute neck cut-out for an extra dash of flirtatiousness), then chose a tough-looking pair of black boots and a classic pair of black aviator sunglasses. To finish off her look, Angelina grabbed Julie K Handbag's totally enviable Jules Bag in Exotic, which really turned heads! Angie is a huge fan of Julie K Handbags' collection, and has been seen toting their designs on numerous occasions. While there is never a shortage of Brangelina gossip in the news, it seems that the most recent reports claim that Angelina is "furious" with Brad and his lavish spending habits. Oh boy, here we go! A source tells The National Enquirer (take this with a grain, or a pound, of salt), "Angelina is furious with Brad’s expensive tastes. It rubs her up the wrong way how he burns through money. Whereas Brad enjoys life’s luxuries, Angie is frugal. She’s always been tight with her money and Brad’s splurges bother her." The source goes on to say that while Angie might be peeved at Brad's spending, B wishes that A would focus more on veggies when feeding the kids, instead of meat. The source says, "Brad hates seeing the children eating meat and he’s annoyed with how much red meat Angelina has. He goes on about the damage caused by methane gases from cattle and that the family should go veggie but Angie says that’s never going to happen." I don't know if I buy all of this, what do you think readers?
Angelina Jolie seen on May 18 2009 in Cannes, France. After a few busy weeks behind the scenes filming Salt and weighing in on some political events, Angelina Jolie resurfaced on Brad Pitt’s arm at the premiere of his new drama Inglorious Basterds at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival on May 20 in Cannes, France. Selecting a stunning Versace gown with intricate pleating on the front and back, the gown drapes over one shoulder and reveals a backless look from behind, showing off Angie’s many tattoos. Capture Angie’s silky draped look for summer with CoutureCandy’s sweet frocks like Ingwa Melero’s Kaja Mini Dress in Mocha, Walter’s Tulip Print Mini Dress in Pink Multi or Gold Hawk’s Mini Sequin Dress in Pale Yellow. What do you think of Angie’s sweeping style? Because she picked such a neutral shade, Ang played up her eyes more than usual and pulled off a classic blood red pout. The shade is absolutely perfect for her complexion, and Angelina complements it with her rich brown her casually pulled over one shoulder. For a woman who usually picks such “safe” gowns and make-up for events like this, it’s nice to see Angie taking a chance for once! What do you think of her red carpet look?
Angelina Jolie seen on Apr 23 2009 in Albany, NY. Looking very somber, Angelina Jolie arrived on the set of her latest film, Salt in Albany, NY on April 23 toting some heavy reading material (Richard Haass' War of Necessity, War of Choice: A Memoir of the Two Iraq Wars) and a melancholy expression. The way she's dressed, you'd think she was on her way to a funeral, not getting ready to film a spy flick! The loose maxi dress rekindled pregnancy rumors splashed all over the cover of Star Magazine this week, but I actually kind of like the neckline and the length of the dress (opt for CoutureCandy's twists on the long black dress like Walter's Ombre Long Dress in Pink Multi, Gold Hawk's Garden Party Long Dress in Black or my personal fav Vix Swimwear's Solid Textured Halter Long Dress with Train in Black). You just can't do such a dark, full coverage style without balancing it with more exciting shoes and coat... not to mention a little color. The all black look is so drab! Would any of you wear the dress and if so, how would you style it? She's been hard at work on the set lately, but it's looking less likely Ang will be taking any time off after filming ends. Remember just a few months ago when Angie said she wanted to take a break from working for awhile... and then she signed on for Salt? Now Angie has furthered delayed her "retirement" by accepting an offer to play heroine Dr. Kay Scarpetta in an on-screen adaptation of Patricia Cornwell's crime novel series. Kind of like the Sherlock Holmes movie and the Bourne series, the movie will contain elements from several of the 16 book series but won't focus on any one in particular. Just sounds like another power-femme role for Angie to play! Are any of you fans of Cornwell's writing?
Angelina Jolie seen on Apr 18 2009 in New York, NY. She's been hard at work in NYC over the past few weeks, but Angelina Jolie still makes time for her family. The busy actress-activist was spotted picking up some snacks for the fam with Brad and daughters Zahara and Shiloh at a Stop & Shop market in New York on April 18, laughing and smiling together as they exited the store. Dressed professionally, Ang did her shopping in a taupe a-line skirt (just like Moschino's Stretch Pencil Skirt in Beige with a white blouse tucked in (Gold Hawk's Short Ruffle Tunic in Oyster exudes the same casual elegance) and sophisticated knee high boots, carrying her black Cartier mom-bag (opt for Antoinette Lee's roomy Stella Bag in Black instead, just big enough to double as a weekend bag this summer) while shielding her peepers with classic aviators. It's a classy look, but like so many of Angie's ensembles it's up for debate if it leans toward boring or chic. What do you think of the 'fit? Angie and Brad were all smiles and love as they looked after their girls and tended to their shopping cart, but rumor has the all-powerful couple is on the verge of splitting. A "friend" told InTouch what's really been going on since Brangelina had a huge fight over Easter weekend: "He told her very clearly that he just can't live with her anymore. He said it was over. He was like 'I'm outta here,' and left." Supposedly then Brad made a trip back to he and Angie's estate in France to clear out some of his belongings... which I have to question a little. I just can't see Brad walking out on the kids, but the source continued: "He's tired of all this. It never stops. Like always, Angelina only sees her side of it. Brad thinks she is so self-serving. Brad can't live with her, but he can't live without her... If it wasn't for their six children, odds are they wouldn't still be together." Do you think things are really going downhill for Brangelina or are the tabloids making a big deal of nothing?
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 22 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Ahh, Oscar time! The wait is over for fashionistas worldwide who’ve been eagerly anticipating which designers would made it to the red carpet at the 81st Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles on February 22. Though she was inclined to go with her signature dreary black color, Angelina Jolie did not disappoint in this stunning Elie Saab gown. From the curvy strapless silhouette to the sheer, draped train adding a little sexiness to the full length look, Angie is breathtakingly gorgeous with her hair pulled back and flawless décolleté exposed. If you love the classic black strapless look, check out options like Vena Cava’s Tube Dress in Black or Ingwa Melero’s Charmeuse Sofia Dress in Black. And then there are the emeralds by Lorraine Schwartz – the sparkling teardrop gems are sensational against Angie’s fair skin, and the gaudy emerald cocktail ring adds a decadent finishing touch (add sparkle to your ‘fit without breaking the bank with picks like Danielle Stevens’ Hoops with Gem Dangle in Emerald with matching Pearl Bracelet with Emerald Gem in Gold). Ang polished off her look with Ferragamo heels and a petite black clutch by Lana Marks (try Antoinette Lee’s versatile Dolcita Clutch in Black for carrying all of your essentials). What do you think of the overall look? Unfortunately, neither half of Brangelina took home an award, but you can bet they’re drowning their sorrows in 10 lbs of chocolate together. That’s right, 10 lbs of chocolate: Brad is now the sinful recipient of a sculpted solid dark chocolate bust in his likeness. The bust is a gift from AXE promoting their new Dark Temptation deodorant spray, sent with the ridiculously cheesy message: "We still feel your performance deserves a statue - one that's a bit sweeter." How delicious does a piece of that action sound?
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 16 2009 in New York, NY. Getting back to business, Angelina Jolie was spotted on February 16 pounding the pavement in NYC. After her recent global travels, Angie was out looking for a new abode to settle down in while she films her new spy thriller Edwin A. Salt in the city. Dressed in a tantalizing trench coat (like Suzabelle’s Umbria Trench in Black) over a simple sheath dress (try Tricia Fix’s Betsey Mini Dress in Black) and sexy black boots, Ang looked pretty hot on her apartment hunt. Once again carrying her Marcello de Cartier bag (check out Carla Mancini’s Whipstitch Double Handle Tote in Black as an alternative), Angie wore her hair super straight and rocked big sunnies. What do you think of the sophisticated all black look? Angie had a couple of busy days this week, getting started with test shooting for Salt in NYC solo for a few days before heading back to LA for the Oscars this weekend. Angie is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Changeling and Brad is also up for an Oscar for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Hopefully at least one half of Brangelina will come home with a little gold man!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 30 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. Looking ravishing while enjoying herself in Tokyo, Angelina Jolie captivated reporters at a press conference for Changeling on January 30. After attending Brad’s premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button the night before, Angie looked perky and polished in a Ralph Lauren Collection cashmere dress (check out similar sweater dress options like Autumn Cashmere’s Racer Back Dress in Mushroom or the similar shape of Aristocrat’s Valentina Dress in Cymberline) and demure peep-toes. I love Angie’s black pearl earrings (try Michele Michel’s contemporary Onyx Disco Ball Earrings in Silver) and matching pearl ring, and I have to comment on how radiant she looks. The twins are in Japan with Brangelina for the first time, and you know they can’t be sleeping through the night just yet! When asked recently about how she juggles traveling with six children, Angie dished on the family routine: “Our kids are always packing. They like to pack; it’s a game in our house. It can get very hard trying to find 20 minutes to close your eyes if you’ve been up since four in the morning. We travel so much, we never have to adjust. We change school time to four in the afternoon if we have to!” That doesn’t sound very healthy to me, but you can’t beat the multicultural experiences the Brangelina clan are exposed to! Do you think it’s fair for Angie and Brad to constantly uproot their kids?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 29 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. Where in the world is Angelina Jolie? After the SAG Awards in LA last week, the Jolie-Pitt gang flew to Tokyo for the Japanese premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on January 29. Angie looks very classy in her iconic wrap dress by Reem Acra (check out similar options like Lotta Stensson’s Basic Wrap Dress in Slate or PGD Style’s Wrap Dress in Black), but I have to question the shiny satin choice. Do you think it’s flattering on her? Completing her old fashioned look with black satin peep toes and a decadent pair of pearl earrings (Kuo Ting’s Labradorite Marquis Earrings in Gold would be gorgeous with a simple pearl bracelet like Brian Nagourney’s Forget Me Knot Bracelet in Black), Angie looks a little jet-lagged but otherwise shone on the red carpet at Brad’s side. Angelina lives a very low key life now that she’s a mother of 6 and the UN’s Goodwill Ambassador, but recently her name came up in conversation from none-other than party gal Paris Hilton. When asked who her dream best friend would be, Paris gushed, “I love Angelina Jolie! She’s strong but gorgeous and uses her fame for good to make a big difference in the world. That’s a great quality. I’d have a lot in common with her!” Try to wrap your mind around that one! I wasn’t aware that Paris is using her fame to save the world, so I’m pretty sure Angie would disagree… what exactly do she and Paris have in common?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 25 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking fabulous in a draping cornflower blue dress, Angelina Jolie hit the red carpet at the SAG Awards in Los Angeles on January 25. Putting her own spin on Max Azria’s Spring 2009 gown, Angie decided to flip the dress, worn on the runway with the v-neck at the front (try the same look yourself with dresses like PGD Style’s Flutter Sleeve Dress in Plum Kitty or Gold Hawk’s Brush Stroke V-Neck in Black). Her stylist, Jen Rade explained to US Weekly that Ang loved the low back style because it shows off her multitude of tattoos, and she liked the blouson front style better. Not sure why Angie loves the blouson look so much lately, but it does look stunning on her increasingly slender figure. Is it just me or is Ang looking a little too thin lately? She looks gorgeous here but her sharp collar bones and bony wrists tell a slightly different story. What do you think? The blue shade of the dress is perfect against her light skin though, and the messy up ‘do adds a nice contemporary feel to this ‘fit. Angelina completed her look with delicate Tiffany & Co hoop earrings (try Michele Michel’s Onyx Diamond Hoop Earrings in Silver to dress up either option above) and killer heels by Christian Louboutin. Très classy! What do you think of Angie’s SAG look? As she walked the red carpet, Angie was pressed to gush about her lover, and finally said a few words about how much she appreciates him: “[Brad]’s taught me a great deal. He’s a wonderful man and a great father and the person I admire most in the world because I know who he is every minute of every day. I think he’s extraordinary… We’ve been doing [the red carpet] together for four years - it’s always nice [to have him around]. I don’t think I’d want to be doing it alone. It’s nice to be doing it with your best friend and have a laugh in the middle of the show.” Funny how these two lead such a perfect life and yet it’s hard to get intimate answers out of either of them about their relationship! Do you think they’re overly scrutinized by the press, or does their secrecy make their relationship seem a little murky?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 19 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Making a stunning entrance at the Berlin premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Angelina Jolie looked timelessly elegant on Brad Pitt’s arm as the sizzling couple walked the red carpet on January 19. I’m loving that Angie took such a daring twist with the ivory pantsuit and funky sweep over ‘do, but I’m having trouble wrapping my mind around this one. Angie started with a floor sweeping pair of ivory trousers, a matching blazer with casual rolled cuffs, and a simple white cami under a sheer wrap top (emulate Angie’s look for a casual day with classy denim trousers like Pierce Jeans’ Newport Perm Press Trouser in Midnight Blue, LaROK’s Colette Top in Pearl with PGD Style’s Fancy Tank in Walnut underneath and Elizabeth Gillett’s Cindy Knit Duster with Lace in Ivory topping it off). In regards to the pantsuit, I am usually never a fan of the look, but I think this might be the exception. The fit is perfectly tailored for Angelina – not too loose, not too tight – and the layered pieces under the jacket add a vintage, glam element to the look. Very old fashioned, but it works, especially next to Brad’s tailored suit and scarf. I’m also loving that she took a huge chance with her hair, sweeping one side to the back and letting the right side fall in a huge flip. When has she done anything different with her hair lately other than add a few loose waves? It’s a little crazy but it works! The dazzling earring on the left side only is another matter though – do you think the one earring look is flattering? I’m surprised to say I really don’t think it’s that distasteful, and combined with the similarly ornate ring Ang is displaying across Brad’s sexy abs, I think it adds a surprisingly elegant touch to the ‘fit (add some elegant gems like Robyn Rhodes’ Kimberly Ring in Gold and the Kaylee Earrings in Gold - wearing one or both is optional!). I’m sure you all have thoughts about this daring look… do you think it’s a do or don’t? After the premiere, Brangelina unwound with a relaxing dinner at the historic VAU Restaurant in the reconstructed Mitte district. I have to assume Brad is savoring his last night in Berlin, leaving the premiere with a lager in hand like a true Deutsch. Filming has wrapped for Brad’s new Quentin Tarantino flick Inglorious Bastards and the Jolie-Pitt clan is expected to jet out of Germany for other worldly spots. Where to next, kids? China, Africa, Los Angeles? We’ll have to wait and see where the wind takes them next!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 19 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Leaving the kiddies alone with the nanny (or nannies?) for a few nights, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went out for a night on the town in Berlin on January 19. On the eve of Brad’s German premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Angie looked a little worn out as the duo made their way from a private dinner at the Vino e Cucina restaurant to their hotel late in the evening. Wearing a very somber ‘fit, Angelina wore a simple black dress covered with a long burn-out lace coat (try the similar shape of Ingwa Melero’s Velvet Coat with Frog Closure in Black over an elegant dress like Black Halo’s Shawl Collar Sheath Dress or the Trapunto Sheath Dress in Black) and classic knee-high boots. I like the print of the coat but the look is pretty mundane, except for Angie's elegant Cartier tote! The length and size are perfect for a celeb mommy, don’t you think? Angie completed her sophisticated look with an elegant gold bracelet (see Rachel Leigh’s girly Audrey Gold Bangle in Gold) and a dainty ring (spice up your ‘fit with Rachel Leigh’s Nicoli Ring in Gold). The New Year is off to a great start for Angelina, who has enjoyed plenty of success over the last few months for her work in Kung-Fu Panda and Changeling, not to mention her long-term lover’s work in the hilarious Burn After Reading and of course, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It’s no surprise that last week Angelina received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her performance in Changeling. I’m embarrassed to admit I haven’t had a chance to see her in this drama yet – what did you readers think of her? Other nominees include Kate Winslet for The Reader, Anne Hathaway for Rachel Getting Married, Meryl Streep for Doubt and Melissa Leo for Frozen River. Who do you think among these lovely ladies deserve the little gold man the most?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 11 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking radiant as ever on the red carpet, Angelina Jolie made a stunning appearance at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on January 11. Wearing a sweeping gown with a tantalizing thigh high slit by Atelier Versace, Angie sparkled among the sea of celebs with her elegant simplicity (if you love the shimmery gown, try CoutureCandy’s picks like Gold Hawk’s Sequin Dress in Dessert Brown or LaROK’s Delirious Mini Dress in Wood). I love that she took a chance with the slit, but I’m not sure about the similar shape of the blouson waistline to the Max Azria dress she wore to the Critic’s Choice Awards a few nights prior. Wearing two dresses with very similar concealing waistlines almost makes it seem like she’s hiding something – a baby bump, perhaps? Angie completed her look with satin Jimmy Choo peep toes and an elegant set of platinum diamond earrings with a matching ring by Neil Lane (dress up your ‘fit with some less pricey yet equally elegant baubles like Rachel Leigh’s Gumball Ring in Caramel or Michele Michel’s Babe Citrine Earrings in Silver), sticking to her trademark nude makeup and wearing her espresso tresses in long, loose waves. Overall I think the look is very glamorous, and I must credit her stylist Jennifer Rade – you can definitely see the difference in Angie’s appearance when she has a little extra help! Though neither half of Brangelina took home awards this year, Angie gushed to the press about her long-term lover’s work in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: “Most of all I was charmed by him when he was younger. I was charmed by it. When I first saw the film, there were a lot of blue masks that they had to put on his face, so the first half I didn’t see his acting inside the little guy. Then, when I saw him when he was young ... he is just so charming. I was really moved. I thought he was wonderful.” Have any of you seen Brad’s performance and if so, were you as “charmed” by it as Angie?
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 08 2009 in Santa Monica, CA. Making a stunning appearance on the red carpet of the Critic’s Choice Awards, Angelina Jolie attended the event in Santa Monica on January 8, looking picture perfect with Brad Pitt at her side. Both halves of Brangelina were up for awards for their work in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Changeling, but neither took home the honors this time. Angie’s sweeping Max Azria dress was a hit among fashionistas, but I’m not sure the draping one shouldered frock really does it for me. The high slit and long train throw me off too. The look is certainly elegant, but it’s almost so simple that the overall effect is dull rather than breathtaking. What do you think of Angie’s silhouette? If you like the free flowing look, try CoutureCandy’s casual picks like Cake Couture’s Gardenia Racer Back Dress in Ivory or Kelly Cushing’s flirty Tunic Mini Dress with Sash in Peacock or Coral. Always tasteful, Angie swept her dark locks into a sleek ponytail and showed off classy pearl earrings with a matching pearl ring by Mikimoto (capture the pearl essence with less pricey picks like Castaway’s gorgeous Keshi Pearl Cascade Earring in Keshi Pearl or Robyn Rhodes’ ornate Kimberly Ring in Gold). Wearing her favorite peep-toe Stuart Weitzman heels in a coordinating icy hue, Angie carried a boxy clutch by Herve Leger for Max Azria. Again, I want to love the clutch but I’m not sure if I do – is it just me or does it kind of remind you of a sunglasses case? Though we all know Angelina loves spending time abroad, rumor has it Brangelina may soon relocate to New Orleans. The power couple recently renovated a 19th century mansion in the French Quarter, and have been raving to the press about how much they love spending time in the city. Angie says even the children are thrilled about the move: “They love the school and their friends here. Most of all they love Verti Marte. Their favorite thing to do is go down there. But for all of us, we just come here and feel at home. We’ve made some great friends. This is the place we feel combines all the culture we love.” It does seem like the eclectic Brangelina clan would fit right in amongst New Orleans’ multicultural setting. Do any of you share similar sentiments about the Big Easy?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 09 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Letting her style guard down for a night, Angelina Jolie made an appearance at the premiere of her pal Clint Eastwood’s Gran Torino in Los Angeles on Dec 9, wearing a disappointingly drab ‘fit. There is no way to describe this look as anything other than something a tired and rushed mother of 6 would throw on as she made her way out the door! Starting with a bland Ralph Lauren crew neck sweater (see Smitten’s High Neck Double Breasted Sweater Jacket in Grey for a more interesting take), black skinny pants (avoid the wrinkles around the crotch with Tag Jeans’ Stretch Skinny Pant in Black), and Stuart Weitzman nude peep-toes, Angie kept her look clean with no jewelry and slightly mussed up espresso tresses. Is it possible her stylist was off duty for the night? Despite her less than stellar appearance, Angie was actually smiling and laughing on the red carpet for a change, happy to support her former director’s latest work. She has plenty to thank Clint for – after all, his directing did earn her a Golden Globe nomination! Clint recently spoke fondly about his work with Angelina, "She is an actress hampered by her gorgeous face--I think the most beautiful face on the planet. People sometimes can't see past that to her talent. She's on all these magazine covers so it's easy to overlook what an amazing actress is underneath." What do you think of Angie’s performance in Changeling - does she deserve another trophy on the mantle, next to her 1999 Academy Award for Girl, Interrupted? I’ll let you decide!
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 08 2008 in Westwood, CA. Getting glammed up to support her man, Angelina Jolie looked stunning at the Los Angeles premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Dec 8. Held at Mann’s Village Theater in Westwood, Anne and Brad stole the show in their designer threads, dazzling the crowd in Versace and Tom Ford, respectively. Angie wore her gorgeous black strapless gown (for more affordable picks, try Black Halo’s Strapless Box Pleated Dress in Black or Tricia Fix’s Marilyn Long Dress in Black) with a tasteful pair of swinging pendant earrings (splurge on Lana Jewelry’s Jaguar Earrings in Yellow Gold) and her trademark natural make-up. It’s refreshing to see Angie smiling once again, and I hope things will stay positive in her life after the whirlwind publicity ends and the Brangelina clan goes back into hiding. Do you think she looks noticeably happier during her last few public appearances? Maybe the secret here is the other half of their red carpet entourage: Angie’s pseudo in-laws also attended the red carpet premiere, taking pride in their son’s work and gushing about their grandchildren to the press. Rumors have been circulating for quite some time that Angie butts heads with Jane Pitt over parenting strategies and Jane’s continued friendship with Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, but it seems like the two have worked out their differences since the twins were born. Both Jane and Bill Pitt relocated to France to help take care of the babies shortly after they were born, and Angie has repeatedly said how thankful she is for their help. With everyone attending the Benjamin Button premiere, wonder who stayed at home with the kids?
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 01 2008 in New Orleans, LA. Someone must have finally convinced Angelina Jolie to come out of mourning and put on a little color! Attending a screening of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in New Orleans on Dec 1, Brangelina made a swanky appearance on the red carpet dressed impeccably in a L’Wren Scott dress (Brad wore an equally sexy Tom Ford suit). Having a little fun with buttons on the back of her dress, Angie swept her espresso tresses into a loose ‘do, showcasing her sparkling antique studs. Wearing cream peep-toes by Stuart Weitzman and adding a classic crimson pucker as the finishing touch, it’s very refreshing to see Angie looking vibrant again, even though the look is a little old glamour. To nab the classy look, start with an old-fashioned frock like Shumaq’s Penelope Dress in Cream or Ella Moss’ Astrid ¾ Sleeve Dress in Vanilla, pair with elegant peep-toes and a sophisticated (not to mention affordable!) pair of earrings like Rachel Leigh’s Estelle Stud Earrings in Silver. Très chic! It’s almost impossible to imagine this is the same girl who used to wear a vial of blood around her neck, but age has clearly been kind to her, as Angie recently told a British mag that she feels more beautiful now than ever. Paying tribute to her late mother, Angie said, “You know what is beautiful? My mom. She was beautiful to me, and I look more like my mom as I get older. Something else comes out of you when you become a parent and, as you get older, you start to see more character in your face.” What about you, readers – who do you think is the most beautiful person in your life?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 30 2008 in New Orleans, CA. Out for an afternoon of quality bonding time with her son Maddox, Angelina Jolie headed to the Little Toy Shop in New Orleans on Nov 30, picking up a bag full of goodies for Brangelina’s ever expanding brood. Wearing what can best be described as an unflattering sheath dress (try the much classier Color Block Mini Jackie O Dress in Ash by Black Halo), Angie was uncharacteristically happy as she exited the shop – when was the last time she smiled that convincingly? Back to the dress, I have no idea what possessed her to wear something so tight that does absolutely nothing for her figure besides fuel pregnancy rumors. I must say I do like the barefoot illusion of her nude flats (although Matiko’s Adena Flat in Black would look perfect with the Black Halo dress)– she just needs to lose the dumpy dress! Angie’s mirror framed aviators and black messenger bag (Carla Mancini’s Wavy Top with Braid Handle and Front Pocket in Grey Crocodile is a fun twist) add a much needed dash of cool to her ‘fit, giving me the impression she might have had some extra time to put her look together on her trip down south. Glancing in a mirror might have helped the dress situation, but at least she’s wearing color again! A few weeks ago, Angie made some surprising statements about lessening her workload to focus on her family: “Nobody should ever say “I’m retiring…” so it’s not as dramatic as that. It’s been a year since I’ve worked and I’ll work for a few months and maybe it will be another year, maybe two, and I’ll just work every once in a while… I feel very lucky… that I’m financially able to not work all the time.” She should feel very lucky, but I suspect her feelings may change after the 2009 Golden Globes! Both Angie and Brad are up for awards, with Ang nabbing the nomination for her starring role in Changeling. If you’ve seen the flick, do you think Angie deserves the award?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 17 2008 in London, UK. Once again wearing an all black ensemble, Angelina Jolie left a London screening of the Changeling with Brad amid a sea of shutterbugs on Nov 17. Angie almost always looks radiant, and for once I’m a little disappointed in the pants situation here. The flat front waistband and the satiny sheen are certainly not flattering – to the point where it almost looks like she has some kind of bulge going on down there. Definitely not one of her best looks! Tucking in a black button down (like Gold Hawk’s Short Ruffle Tunic in Raven Black) with a long wrap sweater over it (similar to Zoa’s Open Drape Cardigan in Black), Angie carried a large flat clutch (try Antoinette Lee’s Dolce Handbag in Black, which has a removable chain strap) and wore some very basic round-toe pumps. Combined with lackluster locks and her normal nude makeup, I think it’s finally time to say Angie could use some help in the beauty dept. Maybe some fresh bangs to rejuvenate her tresses? In case you missed it, over the last few weeks the infamous Team Aniston – Team Jolie battle has flared up again, after Angie let it slip that she fell for Brad while he was still married and Jen reacting by telling Vogue that the revelation was “uncool.” Meanwhile, Jen appeared on “Oprah” this week and defended her “uncool” comments, while US Weekly put Angie on the cover with headlines suggesting she “tortures” Jen – clearly signifying the mag’s Team Aniston allegiance. A lot of you are saying the whole controversy should be dead, but personally, I do think Angie went too far when she gushed about her love affair with Brad in her The New York Times interview last month. Why not let the past be the past? What about you – are you in favor of Team Aniston or Team Jolie?
Angelina Jolie seen on Nov 09 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Making yet another surprise appearance on the red carpet, Angelina Jolie made her rounds at the DVD release party for the animated flick Kung Fu Panda at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on Nov 9. Not straying from her signature hue, Angie wore a casual black mini with long sleeves (check out Rails’ Mona Dress in Black or Qi’s Crew Underslip in Black - with leggings of course!) and sophisticated nude peeptoes, accessorizing with a simple pair of dangling gem earrings (I’m sure Angie would approve of Robyn Rhodes’ Lani Earrings in Gold or Christie Martin’s Small Sharktooth Earrings in 14K Gold) complete with natural make-up and her trademark long, loose waves. Nothing spectacular, but for a mom of six, it doesn’t get any more polished than this – and unlike other celebs who overdo it on the red carpet, her ‘fit is entirely appropriate for the event. In case you missed Kung Fu Panda in theaters, Angie plays the voice of Tigress, “the strongest and the boldest of the Kung Fu masters,” in a role that allowed her to reunite with her hilarious Shark Tale co-star Jack Black. If her kids’ opinions are anything to go by, Angie’s brood adores the flick: “I think it’s a great film, and it’s brought a lot of joy to children – and to my children, absolutely. My kids love it. They’re very very proud, they’ve got mom [Tigress] dolls.” Perhaps Angie should let her kids manage her career, full of family friendly picks like this? According to sources, it seems that Angie has already let her eldest son Maddox take over the role of personal trainer. While showing his parents and kid siblings how to play his favorite Nintendo Wii games, Maddox introduced Angie to the Let’s Pilates! game and quickly got hooked. Angie tries to make time to play with her son three times a week… great for bonding and for those toned gams!
Angelina Jolie seen on Oct 27 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Much to the delight of attendees, Angelina Jolie returned to the states on Oct 27 to attend the Hollywood Film Festival at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Angie made a surprise appearance to present the Director of the Year award to her latest collaborator, Clint Eastwood. Wearing what looks to be an elegant floor length dress, Angie pulled an optical illusion on us, wearing a slinky Karen Zambos cami tucked into an Alexis LaMontagna train skirt ((mimic the look with Rails’ Caitlyn Top in Black and Tricia Fix’s sexy Kara Skirt in Black or the Marilyn Long Dress in Black) and classic Tiffany diamond studs (nab the elegant look without emptying your pocketbook with Castaway’s dainty Birdnest Earrings in Gold). Letting her brown locks hang loose while baring her numerous tattoos and pouty nude lips as her only accessories, once again Angelina pulls off the perfect balance of sexy sophistication in this look. Très chic! When Angie took the stage to honor the director of her most recent film, she took a moment to pay tribute: “There are some people in this business that are icons, and we often wonder if, when we meet them, they’ll live up to what we imagine them to be, and Clint Eastwood in person is even better.” Will any of you being making your way to the theater this weekend to see Changeling?
Angelina Jolie seen on Oct 06 2008 in New Orleans, LA. After the NY premiere of The Changeling, Angelina Jolie and the kids headed south to New Orleans on Oct 6 to check out the housing project Brad Pitt is backing. Angie looked quite the trendy mama as she took a stroll with her brood, stopping to pick up some wholesome Cheetos snacks at a corner store. Wearing a tiered black maxi dress with a full skirt (brighten up your fall look with the similar style of Woo’s Jasmine Dress in Grass Green), Angie looked both comfy and chic in black ballet flats, oversized black sunnies (check out JeeVice’s Egoist in Black) and her long dark locks framing her face, opting to add only a smattering of gold bangles (try Rachel Leigh’s adorable Audrey Bow Bangle Set in Gold). She looks casual yet put together, and you’d hardly know this woman dresses not only herself, but 6 kiddies every morning! After the Louisiana rendezvous, the Jolie-Pitt clan jetted back to France for a week before Angie returned to NY for her appearance on The Today Show on Thursday. Angie had some face time with the press last week, and while we all suspected it in the past, she managed to let it slip in an interview with The New York Times that she and Brad Pitt got together while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith back in 2004 – when Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston. She told the newspaper, “Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.” Way to go, Angie – spilling the beans for all of us to eat up! She later tried to claim she was fatigued from jet-lag and that her words were minced as a result… not buying it. What I don’t understand is why she and Brad didn’t take the honest route from the beginning – and teach all those children of theirs the importance of telling the truth!
Angelina Jolie seen on Oct 04 2008 in New York, NY. Returning to the states after a three month sojourn, Angelina Jolie stepped out with her three eldest children on Sat, October 4 for a little shopping in the Big Apple. Angie, and the rest of the Jolie-Pitt clan, are in town for the 46th New York Film Festival, where the highly publicized The Changeling will premiere. Brangelina will have to find a nanny for the kiddies though – the film is packed with far too much scandal and corruption for any of their little ones! On her shopping endeavor, Angie looked like the picture perfect mama, dressed in classy black slacks (like Black Halo’s Pant with Quilted Belt in Black), a cozy black v-neck sweater (get the same comfort but add some color with Autumn Cashmere’s Ruched V Neck Sweater in African Purple), with a chic white scarf around her neck. Toning her accessories down to the basics, the Wanted star kept her peepers shaded with some square framed sunnies (like Nour’s Baba in Oro Bianco) and toted a large black leather bag (check out Julie K’s Eliza Flat Tote in Black Patent) while carrying toddler Zahara on her hip. Brangelina have had a relaxing summer in the south of France getting to know their newest editions, but that doesn’t mean they’re taking a break from their quest to save the world. A few weeks ago, the Guinness Book of World Records’ recently named “Most Powerful Actor and Actress” of 2009 announced they made a $2 million donation to open a medical clinic in Zahara’s native Ethiopia to care for kids with AIDS and tuberculosis. The clinic is modeled after the facility Bragelina opened in Cambodia in 2006 in Maddox’s name. In a statement, Angie said, "Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease." Brad also chimed in, "It is our hope when Zahara is older she will take responsibility of the clinic and continue its mission." Parents setting up their kids in philanthropic business? Sounds much better than a trust fund – I hope to see more celebs following Bragelina’s example!
Angelina Jolie seen on Oct 04 2008 in New York, NY. Hot mama Angelina Jolie sauntered down the red carpet at the New York Film Festival in NYC on Oct 4, out for a night on the town in the Big Apple with her man to see the screening of The Changeling. For her premiere, Angie was all class, wearing a stunning strapless Atelier Versace dress (check out Black Halo’s Strapless Jackie O Dress in Black and Kelly Cushing’s Pleated Mini Dress in Black – options that won’t break your piggy bank!) with black and gold Sergio Rossi peep-toes and an envious set of pearl earrings with a matching ring by Mikimoto (nab the classy look with Castaway’s Sundrop Earrings in Gold and Kuo Ting’s Pearl Wrapped with Beads Necklace in White). For having less than 3 months to lose her baby fat, I can’t believe how slim Angie looks! Is it just me that her locks look a bit darker than usual, almost reminiscent of her pre-Brad goth days? Glad to be back in action, Angie recently told People mag: “Everybody’s great. The babies are getting big and healthy and developing personalities. I run around with all the other kids, and I’m breastfeeding, which I think is a part of your body’s recovery. I feel great [and] feel very happy that they’re healthy.” She definitely does look like she’s recovering well! Angie’s arms also seem a bit more inked up than usual, and it’s not my eyes playing tricks on me – Angie added a few lines of prose to the lined tattoo on her left arm, commemorating the birth place of her two newest additions. Hey, isn’t tattooing unhealthy for breastfeeding? Hmm…
Angelina Jolie seen on Oct 03 2008 in New York, NY. Angelina Jolie was mobbed by photographers while heading to dinner at Il Buco in New York City last night, October 3, to celebrate the release of her upcoming film, The Changeling. Looking as radiant as ever, Jolie wore a grey trench coat (like Suzabelle's Marin Trench Coat in Grey) with tall black boots and a black clutch (similar to Julie K Handbags' Sasha Clutch in Black Glaze). Talk about one hot mama! Angie is set to heat up the red carpet of the premiere of the Clint Eastwood-directed film tonight, so be sure and check out those red carpet pics. In other Brangelina news, the upcoming issue of W Magazine is set to feature the Angie and Brad photos, including one of Angelina breastfeeding one of her new twins! What do you think- will you be picking up a copy? I for one will, as I remember how insane that first photoshoot was of them, where they acted like man and wife with all of their children. Talk about a classic issue!
Angelina Jolie seen on Mar 04 2008 in Austin, TX. Angelina Jolie was spotted at an airport in Austin, TX on Tuesday, March 4, and while I'm not sure exactly what Angelina was doing in Austin, I'm sure it was something angelic with due to the looks of that dress. Jolie sported a free flowing long frock (similar to Gold Hawk's Aofe Long Dress in Moonrock) making sure to hide that baby bump, and kept warm, in a long pea coat-style jacket with cropped sleeves (check out Ecoganik's Mia Jacket in Black). Angie's look was completed with a pair of aviator shades (like JeeVice Optics The Crybaby II in Brushed Gold) and a large white handbag (look at Dutchy Handbags' Mesa Bag in Bone) to hold all of her carry-on items. In other Jolie news, Angelina's new ad campaign for St. John hit magazines recently. The advertisements display Angelina looking like an old Hollywood beauty wearing a classic little black dress from the luxury label. Along with the modeling job, Angelina also took on the role as spokesperson for the company's charity dealing with children's causes. About to pop out another child of her own, the photos were taken before Angelina's baby bump; the same baby bump she debuted at the recent International Spirit Awards back in February. Good old Saint Angelina!
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 23 2008 in Santa Monica, CA. A very obviously preggers Angelina Jolie stepped out at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica yesterday, February 23, and without a doubt confirmed that she is indeed with child. Wearing a Western Costume dress (check out Hope & Glorie's Scoop Neck Dress in Black or LaROK's flashier Jackie Cowl Neck Dress in Black for similar versions) with minimal jewelry and Christian Louboutin shoes, Angie definitely chose the perfect curve-hugging garment to tell the world how excited she is to be pregnant again. Brad and Angie's newest tot will join Maddox, Shiloh, Zahara and Pax and will get them one step closer to having a family soccer team! A source close to the couple told People Magazine that they are "thrilled to be adding to their brood. They are very, very happy." Well, all I have to say is... CONGRATULATIONS!
Angelina Jolie seen on Feb 05 2008 in London. Angelina Jolie was spotted arriving at Heathrow Airport in London on February 5, grinning from ear to ear and looking pretty stealthy if I do say so. It looks like she's a member of the CIA boarding a secret spy plane or something! Wearing a black trenchcoat (similar to Ecoganik's Mia Jacket in Black) with black trousers (like Laura Dahl's Wadsworth Pants in Noir), Ange finished her look with gold shades and leather boots. While I'm sure by now you've heard that Jolie is pregnant (and possibly with twins... how J.Lo of her!), allegedly she is absolutely over the moon with the news. A source tells OK! Magazine, "Brad and Angelina are absolutely thrilled, but Angelina is also very relieved. After trying for months to conceive naturally, she also began to fear that she’d never get pregnant again>." Phew! The source goes on to that that Ange's zany cravings have totally started to kick in, and that "she’s been eating onion rings with mustard and a box of chocolates in the same sitting! She loves these bars that are dark chocolate and cinnamon mixed with Mexican chiles for an added kick. She’s [also] been splurging on cupcakes that Maddox and Zahara have been making.” Put the kids to work, Ange!
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 22 2007 in New Orleans, LA. Angelina Jolie and the family spent quality time together while taking a bike stroll through the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday, December 22. Gearing up for the holiday season, Angelina brought the entire crew including Brad, Shiloh, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara. With temperatures dropping in New Orleans, Jolie opted for an all black winter look on her French Quarter stroll. Angelina began her look with a pair of black ballet flats and a pair of black calf length leggings (check out Laura Dahl's Tiny Dancers Leggings in Noir). On top Angelina stayed warm in a long black knit jacket (similar to Ecoganik's French Terry Detachable Hoodie Jacket in Black) and a black scarf to ensure maximum warmth. Jolie made sure to protect her eyes with oversized black sunglasses (check out Nour's Baba in Oro Bianco). As cute as this entire scene may look, it didn't go down completely flawless. Halfway into her stroll, one of the chains on Angelina's bike came undone. Thankfully one of her bodyguards was at her rescue to repair the bike. Brad seemed to find the entire event amusing, and provided a little chuckle at the incident. Thankfully Angelina made sure Shiloh had a helmet on in case the bike chain incident could have become much worse. Angelina, however, decided to go without the helmet and risk her safety. I'm not sure what we would do if that ever so pretty face of Angelina's ever became damaged. Hopefully next time she will choose to put on a helmet!
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 12 2007 in Chicago, Il. Angelina Jolie and son Maddox were spotted leaving a Borders store in Chicago on August 12, as Angie is there while filming her upcoming project, the action movie Wanted. Wearing a bright red sweater with a knee-length skirt (similar to Ziji's Ruffle Waistband Skirt in Grey), nude flats and carrying a white leather bag (like Linea Pelle's Dylan Messenger Bag in White), Angelina has been catching a lot of flack lately for how thin she has become, but, maybe with exception of her legs, I don't think she looks painfully thin. What do you think? In the past, Angie has been extremely open with her extremely lenient sexual preference, admitting to having a lesbian relationship with model Jenny Shimizu, but now has decided to give up her bisexuality for good. Angelina tells French magazine Public that since Brad has entered her life, "there's no longer a place for that in my life." Angie goes on to say that Brad has "blind faith" in her, and that she has never experienced a connection like they have before in her life. I have to say, I don't believe all those tabloid reports that they're breaking up- I think they're in it for the long haul!
Angelina Jolie seen on Apr 27 2007 in New York, NY. Angelina Jolie stepped out for a rare sighting in New York on April 27 and waved politely to photographers, wearing a conservative grey trench-coat over a black tee and paired with skinny black trousers (like this IIISLI pair) and nude Christian Louboutin pumps. While it's surprising that Angie is in the States and not overseas somewhere adopting another child, what's even more surprising is how committed she and Brad are to each other. Despite recent rumors that the two have hit a rocky patch, they were both seen out dining together (and looking quite cozy) recently, and In Touch is reporting that Angie is trying to rekindle the initial spark with Brad that made him fall in love with her. Angelina bought Brad a $100,000 motorcycle on April 21, because, sources say, "She wanted to do something special for him." The same day, Brad was seen riding the bike around Los Angeles, so it's obvious that he enjoyed his little gift. The source went on to say that "They are focusing more on their family now"… as they should!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 17 2007 in Beverly Hills, Ca. Hi everyone!
Starting this week, I am going to be recording a week-in-review of all of the celebrity antics that went down, from the hookups to the breakups and everything in between. This week, for the premiere of the Weekly Celebrity CoutureCast, which you can stream on the site or download to your iPod, I'm all about the 2007 Golden Globes. Dishing on the red carpet style choices of Angelina, Beyonce, Cameron, Drew, Eva, Jessica Biel, Reese and Sienna, as well as those notorious It Girls who couldn't actually score an invite to the ceremony and had to settle with the after parties, no one is safe. Have you heard about the rumored love triangle that went down at one of the after parties between a recently separated powercouple? Come find out! I also get into the weekly dirt for Paris, Britney, Posh and Lohan.. Be sure and check out the first ever Weekly Celebrity CoutureCast, and stay stylish!
Angelina Jolie seen on Dec 13 2006 in Beverly Hills, Ca. With hot papa bear Brad Pitt being quite vocal recently about how he would love to add another little baby to the hottest family on earth, it came as no surprise that mama bear Angelina Jolie was spotted on December 13 leaving her OBGYN's office in Beverly Hills. Wearing a cozy shrug sweater with Tom Ford's celebrity staple shades, The Whitney in Shiny Dark Grey, Angie fueled on those rumors that she's preggers, lookin' mighty fine as she did so, I might add. Numerous celebrity weekly gossip magazines have been saying that they are 100% sure that Angelina is pregnant for the second time, and this casual little doctor's visit will undoubtedly only give them the fodder to run at least 50 new stories. While this potential baby news is exciting, it would be hard to think that the arrival of a new child to the Pitt-Jolie bunch would cause as much excitement as baby Shiloh did, who by far is the most gorgeous baby I have ever seen. What do you think? Will Angie be poppin' another one out anytime soon??
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 05 2006 in Santa Barbara, Ca. Proud mama Angelina Jolie was all smiles recently at son Maddox's 5th birthday party, held recently in Santa Barbara, Ca. She was seen sporting a cool, casual look that consisted, not surprisingly, of her favorite color: black. In big black aviators, like our Oliver Peoples Commander Sunglasses in Black and a casual tank, like our Saint Grace Low Back Textured Rib Tank in Black, Angie was a black magic woman in every sense of the word. Happy birthday, Maddox!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 30 2006 in Elle France. Angelina Jolie wore Joe's "Twiggy" jean in the January issue of Elle France.
Angelina Jolie seen on Jan 15 2006 in Desert of Nambia. Angie wears this long black sweater in the desert holding hew newly adopted baby girl, Zahara. While Angelina has toned down much of her overt sexuality since becoming a mother, this sweater is conservative, yet at the same time sexy due to its low-cut v neck.
Angelina Jolie seen on Sep 23 2005 in Los Angeles, CA. Angelina Jolie wearing Oliver Peoples Nitro Sunglasses in Shooting Yellow, while on set of the summer blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Angelina Jolie seen on Sep 12 2005 in London, UK. J is for...: Well, Jolie for one (as in Angelina Jole), but also for J Brand Jeans, which the actress has been wearing lately. The Mr. & Mrs. Smith star has requested several pairs and just placed another order but in a smaller size. She may be shrinking but her fondness for J jeans is not.
Angelina Jolie seen on Aug 18 2005 in Los Angeles. Oliver Peoples - Clorette Sunglasses Angelina Jolie is glamorous even just running errands in Beverly Hills. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith star was spotted recently sporting these amazing oversized Clorette sunglasses by Oliver Peoples. A fav among Hollywood's A-list, Oliver Peoples provides a variety of super hip shades from aviators to oversized glasses similar to Jolie's. They're all handcrafted and of supreme quality. Plus the oversized nature provides for a great under-eye coverup... maybe from a late night out with Brad?!
Angelina Jolie seen on Jun 05 2005 in New York, NY. Other than toting around this season's "must-have" accessory, a baby, Angie is multi-tasking like a pro in the Twiggy cut of Joe's Jeans. Girls, the Twiggy cut is perfect if you want to lengthen those legs of yours, just take a look at Angelina's stems.
Angelina Jolie seen on Apr 03 2005 in Los Angeles, CA. While the last few months have been dominated by the Hollywood Baby Boom, there is still one tiny tot who has yet to be seen, young Suri Cruise. There are already numerous conspiracy theorists ready to jump at the chance to critique every minute detail of Suri’s "alleged" birth certificate released by TMZ recently, and still, the "Shroud of Suri" has yet to be lifted. While it could be that all Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes want is their privacy, it also could be that everyone was right and that was a pillow underneath Katie’s shirts the whole time! Katie should take some advice from the media savvy Angelina Jolie, who is no stranger to babies in the media spotlight. Angie has done everything right, sold her baby photos, donated the money to charity, and moved on. Geez, Angie, as if you’re not already one of the most beautiful women on earth, AND have a child with Brad Pitt, but you’re PR person is a genius to boot! Take note, Katie.
