Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab Couture – Oscars 2014


Angelina Jolie is not one to disappoint on the red carpet and the 2014 Oscars (March 2) were no exception.

The ‘Maleficent’ actress embraced the metallic trend in a beaded gown from Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture paired with shoes by Ferragamo.

Angie has been all about black Saint Laurent lately – notably her amazing tuxedo at the BAFTAs – so this elaborately embellished couture piece came as a bit of surprise albeit a pleasant one.

Unsurprisingly she looks gorgeous and glamorous and the illusion through the chest and sleeves is sexy yet subtle. And you can never go wrong with Brad Pitt as an accessory.

Sadly, she didn’t seem to put much thought into the hair and make-up, which could have taken the whole look to another level.

What do you think? Was the hair and make-up not enough? Or did it balance out the complex dress?

    I don’t understand all the fuss over this dress. Its ugly and I don’t find it flattering on her at all

  2. Raul Brammin May 23, 2014 at 11:05 #

    I truly FAIL to understand how many people find angelina beautiful

    Her face has no charm with all that weight loss she had many years ago

    the dress fits her like a hanger on her shoulders which gives a terrible looking appearance

    Although she is skinny, the outfit looks like its a plus size . The length simply devours her body frame

    I truly cannot see what others see in this woman. A big nay on looks and style

    sorry guys

    dont think it suits her…. maybe its the boring hair

  4. gabis March 7, 2014 at 03:27 #

    Really don’t see all the fuzz and for me there’s nothing BDOTY worthy about this look. It’s quite frumpy, matronly and the belt is miserably missed. Not even Hellen Mirren who is 20, perhaps 30 years older than Angelina looked that mantronly on a long-sleeved Elie Saab. Something is very wrong.
    The styling is her usual thing, not outstanding but great nonetheless.

  5. Heather March 4, 2014 at 21:20 #

    Really? Not enough hair styling and make-up? It’s articles like these that put an incredible amount of undue pressure on women. She looks fabulous! Period.

  6. debs March 4, 2014 at 15:50 #

    I actually thought the hair and make-up were flawless but the dress was meh. I agree with the comments about her needing more structure to her gowns.

  7. pinksugar March 4, 2014 at 06:33 #

    I think it’s gorgeous. Too much fussy hair & makeup would have pushed the ‘too much’ envelope for me. I think she looks glamorous and heavenly as always. Easily one the best dressed of the night.

    I really do not understand what people want from Angelina on the red carpet. I’ll admit she wears a lot of black but it seems to me that whenever she switches it up like people want they still don’t like it. This dress was well-liked on the runway, but when Angie wears it suddenly they hate it. I dream of her wearing outfits like this.

    • Sophy March 4, 2014 at 13:35 #

      It was well liked on the runway in RED and was stunning in that colour- i think she has a taste issue – who would choose this dress in this spanx colour when you could wear that glorious red!!!!

    I have never been a fan of Angelina, but the kindness she showed toward an aging Sidney Poitier showed me a new side of her personality, and now I can appreciate her outer beauty. Her dress was one of too many look-alikes, but I like the beaded patterns on the upper portion of it.

  10. mana March 3, 2014 at 23:59 #

    Oh angie, no 🙁 This looks fades in the background, is nothing memorable, just because she’s beautiful and IS angelina jolie she looks decent.

  11. Tamia March 3, 2014 at 19:57 #

    Pros; It’s not black.
    Cons; This is something a member of TOWIE would (and I’m pretty sure HAS worn a rip-off version) wear. It doesn’t seem consistent with her personal style.

  12. Jai March 3, 2014 at 19:24 #

    I’m a bit disappointed. Angie, although she does tend to play it safe and boring quite often, really can pull it out for the big events. This, unfortunately, was not one of those times.

  13. Robbie March 3, 2014 at 19:18 #

    My personal second favourite after Cate, Angelina looks incredible. Glad it’s not black.

  14. Joy March 3, 2014 at 17:54 #

    I agree with some other comments that there is something about the fit that’s not working here. Angelina is so thin, but she looks wide for some reason. I caveat by saying I liked the look because it was sort of unexpected being a Elie Saab and the color choice, but I found this look to be very aging. I thought she looked far better in the last few occasions we’ve seen her. Yes, she was wearing all black the last few times we’ve seen her, but she looked completely elegant.

  15. Marco March 3, 2014 at 14:39 #

    Boring. Big night of disappointments.

  16. from-chitown March 3, 2014 at 14:34 #

    She looks beautiful and it was a pleasant surprise she was not wearing black. But I think the fit was off in the chest area – it made her look big. Which cannot be possible.

  17. EmmaWoodhouse March 3, 2014 at 13:45 #

    I actually really love it. One of her best looks in a long time–elegant and beautiful. I like her styling too. One of the best of the night.

    • Denise March 4, 2014 at 06:28 #

      Totally agree. I love it too.

  18. Giada March 3, 2014 at 11:04 #

    This dress is not flattering for her shape. She has an apple shaped body, a very skinny body, but an apple shape nontheless. Her body shape requires more structure in the mid section of the dress or a better undergarment.

  19. kane March 3, 2014 at 10:20 #

    Not black, but still meh. Having said that hair and make up look gorgeous!

  20. isik5 March 3, 2014 at 10:06 #

    Big boobs and Elie Saab aren’t working I guess. She looks fat (I don’t know how it’s even possible!!)

    • Marco March 3, 2014 at 14:40 #


    • gabis March 7, 2014 at 03:21 #

      So true.

  21. Sanya March 3, 2014 at 08:15 #

    I think she looks amazing. She is so beautiful, and it is great to see her in some other color rather than black.

  22. kevinappears March 3, 2014 at 06:40 #

    I think I remember someone has wore this before, not first run!

    • fatima March 3, 2014 at 08:01 #

      It looks so much like the Jenny Packham gown she wore in Berlin years ago. It’s very meh. Not impressed.

  23. Jess2 March 3, 2014 at 05:15 #

    I was hoping for more but she does look so beautiful!

  24. Alex V March 3, 2014 at 05:08 #

    This looked so fine on TV

  25. Prudence March 3, 2014 at 03:08 #

    Oh angie, if you were not so beautiful I would totally hate this look. Everything below the neck is just MEH.

  26. Cássia March 3, 2014 at 03:05 #

    Amazing and unpredictable choice! Love it H2T!

  27. Noemi March 3, 2014 at 02:53 #

    A bit aging, she looks beautiful as always but I’m not impressed.

  28. Alicat March 3, 2014 at 02:34 #

    All of these metallic, blush and nude gowns are starting to morph into one another. That said, she looks beautiful in an understated way.

  29. Mari March 3, 2014 at 02:33 #

    Vary pretty from the back. You can see her back in a V-plunging neckline.

  30. cherrysoftness March 3, 2014 at 02:33 #

    I don’t understand the comment on the make-up. It’s more dramatic than usual and the close-ups are mesmerizing, her eyes look exquisitely painted and shaded.

    • Mari March 3, 2014 at 02:51 #

      Her makeup looked exquisite, as does her dress. Understated, as she has been this year that she is not nominated

      • Alina March 3, 2014 at 04:41 #

        I agree.

  31. ForestyBali March 3, 2014 at 02:33 #

    For me, it’s frumpy. i even prefer the black one.

  32. Teri March 3, 2014 at 02:29 #

    Boring, dated and Cliche!

  33. towanda March 3, 2014 at 02:22 #

    i’m quite disappointed. this year has more misses than hits

  34. Elizabeth March 3, 2014 at 02:22 #

    I don’t like this at all. Matronly and not flattering to her figure. Her waist looks wide.

  35. towanda March 3, 2014 at 02:21 #

    fit is off

    • Anj March 3, 2014 at 03:23 #

      Agreed. This woman is very very thin yet somehow this dress makes her look 3 sizes larger. The color is nice but this dress is totally wearing her instead of the other way around.

  36. Sophy March 3, 2014 at 02:20 #

    This looks dull as dishwater on her and she looks strangely shapeless – a big NO!

  37. yusofzainal March 3, 2014 at 02:19 #

    She looks pretty but this dress remind me of her previous green atelier versace dress for golden globe 2011.

  38. Sophy March 3, 2014 at 02:18 #

    This looks dull as dishwater on her and makes her look strangely shapeless- not good at all!

    • Iva March 3, 2014 at 09:26 #


      • Sleepless in Chicago March 3, 2014 at 11:15 #

        Agreed. Shapeless and matronly – ouch!

  39. adrian March 3, 2014 at 02:16 #

    Alex, please don’t apologize. Sure it’s not black, but it’s incredible de ja boring.

    • Alex March 3, 2014 at 02:24 #

      Thanks x

  40. Jane March 3, 2014 at 02:16 #

    I’ll start with the positive: SHE’S NOT WEARING BLACK!

    However, I feel like the dress is boring, does nothing to accentuate her figure, looks matronly, and overall very drab. Just like Jennifer Lawrence, people will eat it up.

    • dee March 3, 2014 at 18:10 #


  41. Alex March 3, 2014 at 02:16 #

    I don’t like it. Sorry.

  42. Yeliz March 3, 2014 at 02:15 #

    Thank God it’s not another black gown from Saint Laurent. Even though I think the hairstyle is aging her a bit, she still looks stunning.

  43. brat March 3, 2014 at 02:15 #

    Catherine, her makeup is an almost carbon-copy of the runway model, I like it, it’s dramatic like her. The hair could be better.

  44. marcel March 3, 2014 at 02:14 #

    She was the last EVER person who I thought it could possibly wear Ellie Saab.
    It is a NO for me as well. Big night of disappointments 🙁

    • Mari March 3, 2014 at 02:27 #

      It is not the first time she wears his dresses.

  45. Zerina March 3, 2014 at 02:14 #

    It’s not black and it’s Elie Saab, enough for me to be extremely happy, btw. I think her makeup looks great.

  46. Christine March 3, 2014 at 02:12 #

    I am in tears crying. She looks amazing. I even say BDOTY worthy. She is not wearing black. I am crying tears of joy!!!!!! Yesssss!

    • Susan N. March 3, 2014 at 02:14 #


      • Ally March 4, 2014 at 04:53 #

        She’s looking wonderful…
